The Sims Bowling Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Playlist has posted a new review of The Sims Bowling, EA's latest mobile game to land on fifth generation Apple iPods. The game allows players to create a Sim and travel to the bowling alley to compete in a selection of challenges. Playlist gave the game a score of 3.5 out of 5.

But this is a Sims game, so there’s a lot more to it than just knocking down pins. See, the Sim also has aspirations—life goals on the lanes. He or she wants to become a beloved star at the bowling alley, and their aspiration level increases as their skills do. So the better you do at the game, the better the Sim wants you to do. And to that end, The Sims Bowling features four different game modes: Classic, a regular bowling game; Strike-o-thon (how many strikes you can hit) and Spare-o-thon (the same for spares). You can also hone your skills with Practice Mode, a great way of developing strategies for dealing with tricky pin situations like 7-10 splits.

You can even play against another human, in a manner of speaking, using the game’s Pass ‘n Play mode (where you play a frame, then hand your iPod off to a friend who plays a frame—sort of an iPod version of “Hot Seat Mode”-style gaming on the computer.
