I haven't played my Wii too much over the past year or so, and haven't paid too much attention to releases. However, I loved Wii Sports, as most did, especially Wii Bowling. Hoping to build on that, I bought Brunswick Pro Bowling, and was disappointed, and then received AMF Bowling Pinbusters as a gift, and was absolutely horrified. I just did a quick search to see if anyone has stepped up to the plate and delivered a solid bowling experience to date; apparently not. According to IGN, these are the bowling games available for the Wii, with their respective review score:

Brunswick Pro Bowling: 5.5
AMF Bowling Pinbusters: 2.0
Midnight Bowling: 4.9
Ten Pin Alley 2: 2.0
AMF Bowling World Lanes: 2.5

Has anyone heard of any promising bowling titles being developed? I'm guessing not, as the last bowling game to be release was the end of '08. Worth a shot.

How about Wii Sports Resort?

Your system can shine no matter what it's made of.......except if it's Bose.

True - Resort's bowling is virtually the same, but there is a tad more nuance to some of it due to Motion+. Some different variations, too.

Same goes for golf. After pretty much mastering Wii Sports golf - even to the point of just playing with wrist flicks while sitting - Resort golf was a whole new game - the Tiger Woods Wii games have just built upon that.
