    Dropping $20 on the DS or Game Boy cartridge would be a complete waste on your part, as you find yourself hosed by a game promising holiday cheer and instead visiting the reindeer stalls and giving you the content.
  2. Both games are completely devoid of gameplay, fun, and flair. Worse, they are available free for the PC.

    Asking me which Elf Bowling game in Elf Bowling 1 & 2 is better is like me asking you if you'd rather eat a spoonful of rat turds or hamster turds. They're both god awful and have no right ever being pressed to a Nintendo DS cartridge... It's a single-chuckle joke that's extended into a 20 dollar purchase. And once that laugh is expelled, you're left two of the crappiest games ever developed on the Nintendo DS platform. Merry Christmas.

    The Elf Bowling games are so utterly simplistic, tedious and pointless that we are not sure if it should be legal to expect people to pay money for them. The fact that Ignition Entertainment thought that they could make money off such a piece of software is an insult to humanity. Nobody could possibly be stupid enough to pay money for this game.

    Elf bowling is one of those games that a developer make just to get a quick bit of cash before Christmas, with overly simplistic controls, lack of animation on screen, terrible sound and no challenge to it make this game no fun to play at all and with a price tag of $30 you're best saving your hard earned cash to buy somebody a much better Christmas present than this boring, lazy and overall terrible excuse of a game Expand

    There is literally nothing here.
    Nothing to see, nothing to do, no emotion and certainly no replay value.
    Its like a game developer decided
    to turn a free app into a $20 DS cartridge, even if it was a free app it would have so many bad reviews it would be banned from the app store! Expand
