  • Summary: You no longer have to wait for league night to enjoy the fun of competitive bowling! Taking the game to a whole new level, Strike Force Bowling features authentic real time physics in an easy-to-use arcade style control. Pins never quite fall the same way twice, bowling balls react according to a combination of spin, material and lane friction. Noise of the alley getting on your nerves? Take your game on the road! Knock over skull-tipped pins on the pitching deck of a pirate ship. Play under the watchful eyes of the Sphinx in ancient Egypt. Bowl over tiki heads at the end of a pier on a tropical island. These and other exotic locations await! Six unique play modes keep things interesting, including Skins, Golf, Challenge and Practice modes, as well as Open and Tournament play. Choose from eight high-polygon players, complete with their own animated reactions to gameplay. Bowling styles can be customized according to strength, accuracy and curve. Collapse

  1. Regardless of what you call it, the game attempts to combine zany locales with tried-and-true bowling mechanics, but the game lacks substance and ultimately won't please bowling fans, be they hardcore or casual.
  2. Although bowling purists will find the fantasy elements to be off the mark, casual players looking for a good time will enjoy the variety and the value-oriented price. [Apr 2005, p.100]
  3. There are some fun moments in this game but they are fleeting moments that are quickly overshadowed by the game's repetitiveness.

    Not enough characters and not enough lanes and not enough modes and not enough polish is just not enough, darn it.

    I used to play this game when I was little and I liked it. But when I got older and started playing it again, I realized how boring it was. Plus, the controls are really confusing at times and I don't like it when that happens. I do have nostalgia from playing this, but it wasn't enough.
