My only real complaint is the lack of a practice session before a tournament. You're going into an unfamiliar alley, and it's common to be able to take a few rolls to get a feel for the lanes. Other than that, this is a prime bowling simulator - it appeals to me since I know the sport well, but for those who could care less about bowling, there ain't nothin' here that'll make you like the game any better.
This game is fun for a bit, but I really could not sit down and play for extended periods of time. They did a great job of making it easy enough that a beginner could pick it up and start playing, yet complex enough that if you really want to get good, it takes some practice. I think that there were way too many impossible splits that happened to me, but I guess that just added some challenge to the game. I suggest renting this game for a weekend unless you are a die-hard bowling fan.
All in all, Brunswick Circuit Pro Bowling is a pretty good game. It isn't the type of game you'll play every day, unless you're some kind of bowling nut. Those of you still clinging to Ten Pin Alley can move up to the big leagues with this one. Even if you aren't a bowling fan, and couldn't care less about this game, you really should see the video clips at least once. They're incredibly funny.
The physics of ball hitting pins is excellent and recreates the random scattering of pins perfectly, but who really cares when the action is so tedious? If you’re feeling particularly daring why not try the ‘Create your own bowler’mode, where anything from silver and blackrimmed spectacles to clean-shaven or bearded weirdos can be created. If you feel the unnatural urge to plug away for longer than a couple of hours, Skins, Tournament and Career modes will no doubt fulfil every bowling fantasy, but even the sad FMV fireside chats from the leading pros and the glow-in-the-dark bowling can’t raise Brunswick Circuit Pro Bowling above the bland affair that it represents.
Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
There is nothing wrong with this game. As a sports simulation it captures everything that bowling has to offer, and multiplayer games strongly resemble actual broadcasts. But, much like watching sports on television, the player has only minimal interaction besides munching on corn chips and channel surfing during commercial breaks. I’d really recommend this game only if you’re a hardcore bowling fan.
For those of you who watch bowling on TV and who know the names of the pros, this game is probably just what you have been waiting for. It is a complex and rich simulation. Those who aren't bowling addicts probably won't get hooked.
