  1. It's certainly not a realistic bowling game by any stretch, but it is fun and with up to four players it not bad to have to whip out at a party or if you just want to throw a few games. Good job.
  2. It’s highly addictive and just plain fun, which is why we play these games in the first place.
  3. I spent a few good hours with friends from the ages of 17 to 48 playing this game, and everyone had a total blast.
  4. An average diversion. It is not too-quickly played, but can provide some enjoyment. The pluses outweigh the negatives in this game.
  5. A budget-priced bowling game that’s as unpretentious as it is well put together and fun (in small doses and with the right group of friends under the right circumstances… wink, wink! :-P).
  6. 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.
  7. Ultimately, Strike Force Bowling rolls about a 160, offering bargain basement bowling, but very little flair. [Aug 2004, p.30]
  8. The game fails in the simple task of capturing the excitement of actual bowling. [July 2004, p.112]

    Strike Force is as undesirable as games get, not that it's horribly broken. The game is always so many steps below mediocre, the typically enjoyable pastime of beer and bowling becomes a frustrating and equally tiring endeavor.
  10. How difficult it is to get your ass to a real bowling alley and play a damn game? C'mon man, this is ridiculous. Next thing you know some developer is going to come out with a videogame of a videogame.
  11. 40
    The game equivalent of bowling shoes: cheap, tacky, a little stinky, and something best left behind the rental counter.
  12. It’s filled with those fantastic Outlaw Golf-esque characters, except somehow with even less charm than the freaks that made up the cast of that game.
  13. The game isn't fun...You'll have a lot more funjust going to the bowling alley. [July 2004, p.97]
  14. Poor graphics, weak audio, and mind-numbing gameplay add up to a game that would be a bad buy if they were giving it away.
