Wii has let the bowlers down and featured Mario Bros. When I purchaced everything that wii had to offer, I found WII bowling was realistic and let me stay in the game when I could do not bowl do to a bad left knee. I would love to have some competition but WII has seen to it that they would not try to make this bowling popular. It is a shame.

Is it just me, or is it closer to pink than red?

Yea it would have been great if a company like EA or 2k could have made a kickass bowling game.

The price isn't great, but its not bad either; Nintendo's still milk's prices on their old title software as if its the next best thing even being 4 years old. I still see copies of Twilight Princess selling for $50-60 even at stores like Wal-Mart. So knowing that, the system itself has added value, but after that, then what? As far as I last heard the latest firmware can't be hacked and the damn software isn't worth their price on almost 70% of their lineup. Shame really, that this is their best strategy to take on Xmas.

Yup, that's why most people hack their Wiis.

They had that same package with a floor pad and an Olympics game on the same cart as the other two games.
