I know what you're thinking: Holy crap, this game looks really stupid!
Well, it is stupid, but it's also fun. In most cases, video game bowling sucks (I've never been a fan of REAL bowling, either), but this game has a nice twist to it. While rolling your ball down the lane, you can somewhat control it and when doing so, you can grab different positive and negative items.
Positive items help YOU, whereas negative items hurt your opponent, which can be a real person or the AI. This adds a whole new dynamic to the game and turns what could've been a real flop into something quite entertaining.
There are achievements (if that means a whole lot to you) and a "normal" bowling mode, just in case you don't want to deal with crazy game items. I don't know WHY you'd want to do that, but it's there.
You can play against a real person if you want. This is restricted to local gameplay on ONE PC, so you can't bowl against anyone online.
