Editors' Review

As you can find many excellent bowling sims these days, it's tough for us to get excited about one that stops the fun almost as soon as it starts. Compared to other similar games we've played, this one requires you to take a few extra steps to hurl the ball. First you select desired power on a meter, then choose whether to apply spin. After that, you must line up two red dots to launch your bowling ball down the lane. Pin Action Bowling lets you play with either your mouse or the keyboard, but if you choose the latter, you'll have to live with the prearranged layout. In general, the game's graphics seem satisfactory, but since you can't resize the window to a full-screen view, we have a tough time making a conclusive judgment on its appearance. You can choose to disable the sound effects; select from a few bowlers and balls; and play against the computer or another human. Besides its high memory consumption, the real problem we have with Pin Action Bowling is the demo restricts you to a measly two frames per game. Not only does this trial period severely cut down on the game's fun factor, it doesn't really allow you to determine if the program is worth buying. In the final analysis, we'd recommend checking out other bowling games ahead of this one.
