  • Summary: Forget renting bowling shoes--you can enjoy the fun of competitive bowling in the comfort of your own home. Strike Force Bowling brings the game to you with authentic real- time physics and an arcade-style control. Pins never quite fall the same way twice, and bowling balls react according to a combination of spin, material, and lane friction. From the Sphinx in ancient Egypt to a tropical island pier, you can play in a variety of exotic locations with up to four players. Expand

  1. It's a shame so many critics are casually dismissing this game as “just another budget title”. When somebody can make a game this fun and addicting and sell it for under $20 I have to tip my hat and say “well done”.
  2. 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.
  3. The wacky locales, characters, bowling balls, and game modes put an interesting spin on the sport, even if it isn’t integral to the gameplay.
  4. 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.
  5. Multiple game types add some much-needed variety: skins play, challenge, and golf modes exhaust all possibilities for ball-pin interaction. [Aug 2004, p.83]
  6. The game fails in the simple task of capturing the excitement of actual bowling. [July 2004, p.112]
  7. 40
    A scant few unlockable extras and sorely limited tournament play makes Strike Force one that's strictly for the avid, LSD enchanted bowler with a negative attention span.
