‘Wii Sports Club: Bowling’ initial thoughts

See also

Although bowling on the Wii U in “Wii Sports Club” is an enjoyable endeavor, it appears to be the same mini-game we fell in love with seven years ago, if not for a few tacked-on, but nifty features.

Graphically, the game looks incredibly similar to the updated version of the game in “Wii Sports: Resort.” Because of that, you’ll instantly become comfortable with the presentation of the game, but you won’t be wowed. If you’ve played the game in its other versions before, the “Wii Sports Club” version won’t be a particularly memorable experience.

Luckily for Nintendo, the addition of mini-games and online play is what makes the game worthy of the $9.99 price tag. Online features and mini-games that help you make spares and Miiverse messaging make the experience a fun one that is free of drama and annoyances you’ll often find while playing your favorite first-person shooter online. The new version of the classic 100-pin game also will manage to steal your attention for a few hours.

Bottom Line: If you loved bowling on the Wii, this new coat of paint on the Wii classic won’t steer you wrong. Online modes and mini-games aside however, it’s the same as it ever was.
