    The 'throwing bowling balls at zombies' gameplay feels pretty flakey and the humour doesn't really do it for us. [March 2013, p.27]

    Deeply silly and full of gimmicky distractions, The Bowling Dead simply isn't fun enough to match its outrageously daft concept.

    It's not quite gripping enough to want to sink so much time into it. It's fun for a little while, but it's not the kind of game that will make the hours vanish. It's just too shallow for that and, while new elements are slowly unlocked, the gameplay never truly evolves.
