Anime Bowling Babes Review

Developer: Glimmer Games Publisher: Glimmer Games
Release Date: February 1, 2005 Also On: None

When Kyle first sent me this game, I asked him if it was a porn game or a Dead or Alive type clone. I loathe games where I watch cyber-girls. If you want to see some naked girls, go watch the real thing, rather than in your basement, on a PC. But Anime Bowling Babes was quite different. I actually wanted to see some porno in this game, just to see a little bit of effort.

Gameplay is relatively simple. You use the mouse and some keys on the keyboard, and you bowl. Not challenging. The games have different modes, such as the tournament mode, practice mode, etc., but they all had the same feeling. I tried to find something in this game that made it unique, but I found nothing. Anime Bowling Babes is a simple run of the mill bowling game, which happens to be very easy. Quite unfortunate too, as there aren’t many games in this sub-genre, that can pull it off.

The game has poor graphics. When we buy PC games, we expect top-of-the-line graphics. The character animations are very poor. When I get a strike, I expect to see someone jump up and down. Of course, no such animation was there. This takes away from the game quite substantially, as you don’t get any sense of emotion from the character that you play bowling as. Sound was decent; however, background music was fairly monotonous. Shouldn’t there be some background noise? I wanted to hear other bowlers making noise, but it was not there.

Anime Bowling Babes has very low replay value, because of limited options of games. I feel that perhaps to motivate the player, there should at least be some unlockable characters. Special abilities, anyone? This game lacks any sort of characteristics that would make it better than many decent bowling games on the net, that you could play for free.

I was very disappointed in this game. Poor gameplay, terrible graphics, awful audio, and a lack of any creativity whatsoever kills this game dead. Expect to get bored within 25 minutes. I can’t even begin to tell you what would need improved to make you buy this game: the whole package would. Don’t buy this game. In fact, stay far, far away.
