Product Description

Product Description

Fast Lanes Bowling is a colorful new fantasy bowling game, for all-new fun and action on the lanes! This realistic bowling simulation adds a touch of craziness and fun, with amazingly real bowling simulations.

From the Manufacturer

Fast Lanes Bowling is a ten-pin, bowling, computer game combining realistic bowling gameplay and physics with bowling alleys set in colorful fantasy environments.

The game allows players to bowl casually or partake in tournament modes, competing against computer-controlled opponents. Other modes such as Golf, Skins, and Challenge are available, which change the way the player bowls by using different scoring systems or different pin placements. In tournament mode, the aim is to beat the computer opponents, whilst the rest of the game gives players targets to achieve to improve their own bowling skills.

A range of friendly characters are available for players to choose from, with fantasy bowling alleys to play in, including a tropical island, Moon base, Medieval Castle, and ancient Egypt, with 12 similarly themed environments in total.

The game combines realistic bowling and accurately simulated physics, with stylized 3D graphics and fun fantasy locales.

Features:

  • Ultra realism: experience the most realistic bowling simulation to date with lifelike, intricately modeled, high-polygon characters rendered in lavishly detailed 3D environments.
  • Physically impressive: control the strength, accuracy, position, and spin of every throw! Fast Lanes Bowling sports the most accurate real-time pin and ball physics model of any bowling game to date!
  • Characters for all occasions: Choose from eight male and female characters. Then personalize them to suit your own game by modifying any one of their four attributes.
  • Fantastical: Play in such fantasy locations as ancient Egypt, a Moon base, or aboard a Pirate ship! Knock down all ten pins in a total of 12 extremely detailed environments!
  • Are you game?: a total of six game-play modes, including Open Play, Tournament, Skins, Challenge, Golf, and Practice modes, will test your bowling skills to the limit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strangely compelling and fun January 17, 2004
By A Customer
To be honest, owning a bowling game wasn't that high on my "must have" list, but I got this game as a stocking stuffer this year and was surprised at how much I find myself playing it. It has essentially become my new "solitaire," letting me play when I am bored and want to kill some time without getting into a 5 hour marathon. The production values are surprisingly good, particularly for a bargain priced game. The graphics, sound, and physics are all very well done. I kind of wish there were more "arcadey" (is that a word?) style modes of gameplay, but that might just be the console owner in me talking. Internet play might be fun, too, though bowling isn't exactly a head-to-head sport. You could practically play by e-mail, now that I think about it. A word of caution, though. The game can be very tough, and the need for accurate timing on the controls is a must. I find that if I have too many programs running on my computer it can cause the game to stutter a bit, making for missed throws. If you have a beefier system than mine (1 ghz, 256k of RAM, Geforce 2MX), you shouldn't have much trouble, if any. Overall, an excellent value, particularly if you like video game bowling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding bowling simulation game August 31, 2007
By Dsinned
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I would have to agree with the advertising claim that this is a very realistic bowling game. It truly is!!! The 3D graphics of the bowling ball rolling down the lane and pin action is truly a work of art. I suspect a high end PC, with a high performance processor and sufficient memory is essential to get the most out of this game's graphics capability.

Unlike most other bowling games, this one is more for adults, although school age children should enjoy it as well. It is a bit too difficult for younger children.

I was able to install it on a new Windows Vista PC, but the CD-ROM must remain loaded in order to play the game. That is really the only fault of this game. Inspite of this downfall, I have a hi-res widescreen display, and Fastlanes Bowling supports it in a full 1600x1200 maximum (native) resolution mode. Lower resolution displays can be set up too for older PCs with VGA or SVGA monitors.

This game (first released in late 2003) is currently available at incredible bargain basement prices, and therefore a terrific value. It is definitely worth its original (suggested retail) price of $19.99; at a $1.99 it is a total no-brainer.

As to an earlier reviewer's criticism of no documentation, it can be found on the CD-ROM in a subdirectory called "manual". Although the criticism is well deserved because there is no link to a help file or the instruction manual in the main menu of the game application. I have yet to figure out how to use the "accuracy" and "strength" controls, but the defaults seem to be already set to my liking.

All in all, this is really a well designed premium quality, casual PC game, and I highly recommend it notwithstanding the instruction manual issue.

This is by far the best bowling game out on the market right now.
It plays just like the real thing with the added benefit of some crazy and fun environments.
If you are even a little interested in bowling I highly recommend buying this game, you won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars For The Money Not Bad May 2, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game has alot going for it. First off let's get one thing straight. This is a 170 mb download or 2mb with the cd-rom. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008 is a 2.5 GB game to put that in context. Even so this game manages to provide excellent graphics and a realistic bowling interface. Is it as good as Brunswick Pro Circuit Bowling 2002(BPCB2002) ? Yes, by a factor of 10 ! The graphics,camera angles,avatars and gameplay are superior. FLB uses minimal system resources so most computers should be able to play it without breaking a sweat. In Fast Lanes you CAN'T save your in process tournament progress like you can in BPCB2002) but stats are kept (at least up to 27 games) I don't know what happened there. You can view your bowler's stats by pressing esc when your bowling avatar is standing there and then left mouse clicking on stats. I've had no success at transferring FLB to another computer and the disc must be inserted only to start the game. You can then remove it. I like the night time regular bowling lanes and the moonbase lane on FLB. The 3 available female avatars are quite fetching but you can't play dress-up or feature/body change like Tiger Woods 07/08 which would have been nice but then remember just 170 MB. To put that in context High Heat Baseball 2002 is over half a gigabyte(660 MB) and that was almost a decade ago ! There is alot to recommend Fast Lanes Bowling and alot of stuff I could have definitely lived without. The graphics are great, the camera angles are fantastic and randomized, you can speed through the animations by hitting the space bar, the interface is challenging and fair. The same as BPCB only the meters move faster and at randomized speeds. Challenging and Good! The game uses up minimal computer resources and the bowling physics look real. Read more ›
