I just got a Wii
after playing my brother in law's, I got the Wii
sports resort and the physical aspect of the bowling game is scary real.
It has the same motion as my hand and the ball has the same revs, rotation and speed you put on it. The only thing I don't like is the lack of attention to the oil pattern. There is only one pattern, it plays like a flat sport pattern, if you miss left or right, the ball goes left or right, if you throw it a hair too hard the ball goes long, etc, but there is no lane oil break down, I imagine if it did the game would be so close to real you wouldn't have to leave the house.
It's real fun for me since I haven't been able to bowl since blowing both knees out two years ago.
Once you get the hang of it, the game is pretty fun, the only thing is every once in a while I think it gives you splits just for the fun of it even though the shot seemed to be right on. It might just be me though, but I had 5 splits in one game, moved in parallel 3 or so boards and went back to tossing 200s for 3 or 4 games then I had another game with 5 splits, and moved back to where I was then went back to striking, so you might get penalized for staying in one place too long. I don't think the creators of the game know too much about the true game of bowling, but it's still fun.
The next thing they need to do is create on line Wii
leagues and tournaments.
