High Velocity Bowling 

 

High Velocity Bowling was Sony’s attempt to make a bowling game for the PS Move. They got some things right. They got some things wrong. We are all here to sing that little song. The controls and bowling action in this PS3 game is fantastic.

For years Sony likes to brag about how they are more extreme than their competition. They are edgier. What does that mean? It means they contain more adult only content in their games. They exclude children. Even in games like High Velocity Bowling which should be safe for the entire family. Sony completely messed that up.

High Velocity Bowling has a nice look to the lanes, balls, pins, and characters. The characters in High Velocity Bowling look realistic. Sony included a wide variety of different characters in this Playstation 3 home console video game. Some of them could have used more clothing. No surprise the ESRB missed the sexual content in High Velocity Bowling. After all Sony pays them to review their games. I suspect some back scratching going on.

Bowling is a game of ups and downs. Players need to learn how to be consistent. High Velocity Bowling lets these characters vent their immature frustration with bad language. This hurts High Velocity Bowling, and excludes a large segment of families. The elevator music is nice if you want to take a nap.

High Velocity Bowling includes online play, trophies, ball room, leaderboards, trick shots, challenge mode, and more. There could have been more locales to bowl. Sony spent more time on the balls and characters. I feel like I got my moneys worth out of this game - I bought it on clearance.

The controls in High Velocity Bowling are good for the most part. At times the Move felt glitchy. Other times I could do amazing things thanks to the multiple adjustments that can be made. I loved getting a strike after the game graded my throw with a ‘D+’ because it felt like I proved this game wrong. Families can have some fun with High Velocity Bowling, although there are better bowling games on the market.
