LOVE this game!
It might be just me, but I love this game. I don't know what all the negative comments are about. I really wanted a bowling game because I bowl twice a week; and, I wanted to brush up on my bowling skills for fun. I tried all of BF bowling games and this one is the best. I waited for my monthly credit and then got it. I've played it every day since. I play it so much every day that I'm getting cramps in my hand, lol.
There are five alleys to choose from. The Retro; Jungle; Iceberg; Whacky and Lotus. There are over 25 balls to choose from. (Beautiful colors and patterns). All of the balls have various speeds; weights; and spin factors, that can be changed to your liking. You can even practice your curve ball by steering the ball once it's released on the alley.
The game allows you to keep track of your score(s); and, you can play single; with a computer opponent; or with another player you can make up yourself. You can also erase the score boards and start a new one. I erased all 5 score boards when I had to get over a 200 to get on the board. And, I don't think that it's that "easy". Just try to get a 200 on the "Whacky" level or on the "Iceberg" level. I'm still working on that perfect 300 game. I hope to get it in GUTTERBALL 2, because it's for sure I'll never see one in real life.
Oh, and the graphics are just AWESOME!!!
I gave this game 5 stars across the board except for 3 stars for the "storyline". With each alley you can choose the announcers. You have a choice of 1 or 2, per game. However, the number of announcers are limited; and the same voices that keep whining at you, and saying the same things over and over, can get annoying. If there were as many choices of announcers as there is in the bowling balls....I'd give this game 10 stars across the board !
If you are a bowling fan, I highly recommend this game!

Not worth your time or money
Did not really like it. Did not even get through 1/2 of free trial. Not much challenge to it at all and way too easy to get a strike. Hardest level was the iceburg level and still got 7 strikes. Better off buying Elf Bowling or Zombie Bowl-a-rama if you like bowling games. Only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of one is I like bowling games.
Also kept telling me to change 3D renderer from software (very annoying) but option to change was not there. Game still worked fine though so not sure what problem was.

DON'T DO IT!!!!
It's seriously not worth buying or even taking the trial. Believe me when I say it's not even full screen, it is very outdated, there are very little levels, and therefore you can easily get bored. So please, save yourself some money and use that time to do something worth doing.

Not for me this game!!
As requested...sticking to guidelines of big fish...What did I like about this game?.....nothing......what did I not like about this game?...... everything. The game and the game play were awful!! I can't reveal anything about the plot because I could not see one!! My real opinion is that this game is outdated, not good, frankly awful and not worth buying!

Downloaded it and never got past the first 1/2 hour of the trial. NEVER went to full screen even though that's what I requested. Ball WAY too sensitive and impossible to throw in any controlled manner. I won't be buying this awful game and I DON'T recommend it.
