4.0 out of 5 stars Crack open the Bud, October 20, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: High Velocity Bowling (Motion Control) - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
If you can remember all those long years ago when Ten Pin Alley came out for the PSX then you'll remember that games was a lot of fun with goofy characters and great physics. This game has great game play and can be played with out the move controller. I haven't experienced the game yet with the move controller but I will update the review as so as I do. I did mark the overall rating down one star because the games control seems a little bit more complex after they added the move feature to it. It is still is a load of fun to play and the characters are great there's one for everybody. If you have ever been in a bowling league or even just in a center chances are you have run into one of these characters. I could swear I heard some one ordering a Budwieser in the background. This game can't be compared to Brunswick Pro Bowling as it has more simulation aspects to it then you have here but graphically it is superior to BPB in everyway. HVB has a great selection of balls and a couple of different outfits to be worn but that is about it as far as extra's for your bowler go. You will have a great time with family and friends with this game. So what are you waiting for go hit the lanes!

Update: I finally got a hold of the Move and let me tell you this game absolutely sucks rocks through a straw and blows big chunks afterwards. HVB cannot sync up properly with the camera. That means the camera cannot track your movements correctly and loses sight of your movements. The ball will hook left instead of right or vice versa. I thought I was goijng to be able to tell Nintendo to go pound sand but noooo! Sony really dropped the ball on this peice of hardware what a farce. The sports games that come with it fair a little btter but not much. There should be a price drop on the move real soon as this is one of the worst peripherals I have ever used. Do yourself a favor and if you want the Wii experience buy one here on Amazon for under $ 125.00 including shipping. The last thing I wanted to do was give Nintendo any money but you can't get the experience with this set that's for sure. The game is still fun with the regular controller and if you can pick the disc based game for a reasonable price it is worth it as all download content is included.

I agree, me and my wife split the difference and paid 5 bucks each for this "game" and downloaded from the PS3 store.
What a waste of money!
Without the move controller you simply cannot play the game and from what I hear you can't play with the move controller either.
At least it was only $9.99.

This trash was deleted after 20 minutes of first trying to turn the 3d off, and then trying to figure out how to throw the ball, which simply can't be done.
Worst game I've ever played by far.

Are you sure you have the same game I do ? The only flaw in this game is you can get stuck on a level and there's no going back which is a good reason to have the disc so you can delete the game and start over but there's nothing wrong with move functionality. You're doing something wrong.
