Schade, aber statt einem Strike werfen die Entwickler die Kugel hier, aufgrund einiger Unachtsamkeiten, leider gekonnt in die Rinne. Obwohl die Ansätze - insbesondere in grafischer Hinsicht - durchaus gelungen sind, enttäuscht das Spiel nahezu in jeder Hinsicht. Der Umfang ist ein Witz, die Charaktere wirken unausgereift und den Onlinemodus vermisst man ebenso sehr, wie die von Wii Sports gewohnte Darstellung eurer Leistungskurve. Was bleibt ist ein mäßiges Bowlingspiel, das in der Summe leider weit hinter Wii Sports Bowling zurückbleibt.
AMF Bowling: Pinbusters is nothing more than a well packaged mobile phone game. It is short, poorly executed, unbearably lazy and has no place in anyone's collection. Wii Bowling remains the number one bowling game on Wii by a country mile, and with efforts like this turning up on the shelves, it looks set to remain that way for a long time to come. AMF is the very definition of exploitive, poorly developed software - it's a game that doesn't even deserve to exist, let alone become a part of your collection.

AMF Bowling Pinbusters is like Wii Sports bowling only several thousand times less good. The game mechanics are awful and the presentation is a disgrace. And with a price tag of GBP 19.99, it costs GBP 19.99 more than Wii Sports bowling. Which also comes with free golf, tennis, baseball and boxing games. Next?
What's the point of selling a substandard bowling game on a system that gives one away for free? This game is an absolute dud: it plays poorly, it lacks all sorts of important features, and it doesn't come anywhere near the same quality as what Nintendo already includes as standard issue with every single system in North America. An absolute waste of everyone's time and money...gamers and developers alike.
