All Game Guide
The bottom line is that Brunswick Circuit Pro Bowling is highly addictive and with the introduction of multi-player options, it contains a wealth of realism and excitement.
The nag list is mercifully short: the camera angles are surprisingly limited for a 3D environment, and the flat, bitmapped crowd lining either side of the competition lanes looks totally out of place. But considering that you’ll be watching the meters and not the fringe animation, you’ll hardly notice these inconsequential complaints. Instead, you’ll be yearning to raise your average just a little bit, or trying to nail those three strikes you need in the tenth to break 200. For leaguers or casual bowlers, Brunswick is as engaging a sports sim as they come.

Despite all these strikes, CIRCUIT PRO BOWLING rolls its share of gutter balls. The most glaring is the lack of female bowlers, and to a lesser extent, juvenile bowlers. In one of the few mixed-gender pro sports, such an omission is staggering. Other complaints include lackluster use of 3D accelerated graphics, spotty texturing, and lack of a recorded play feature, a Ia LINKS.
That said, BRUNSWICK CIRCUIT PRO BOWLING is still the best bowling simulation yet for the PC. Adrenalin and Brunswick are reportedly already at work on a sequel. Next time, let’s hope they include the ladies.
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. 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.
Overall, Circuit Pro Bowling is a mildly entertaining game. About the only part of the bowling experience that it lacks is the funny lookin' shoes and it does offer a nice diversion from the slew of ultra-violence so prevalent in video games today.
Game Over Online
Overall, this game is the best bowling game available. But with that being said, there is a reason that bowling game are rare in the gaming world. That reason being that it gets extremely boring after a few minutes of play, especially after being decimated by your opponents.
