"Time to bowl! And... that's it?
With a description like “get ready to smash the boundaries of handheld bowling,” Smash Bowling 3D promises a lot that it, unfortunately, doesn’t deliver. This latest release from Big John Games personifies the phrase “good but not great.” As a bowling game, it plays smoothly, offers a good amount of content to unlock, and has some fun customization features. But that’s about it.
Starting up for the first time, you are prompted to create a new profile. This profile records a player’s career statistics and tracks achievements as they progress through the game. Customization of the profile, however, stops with a name. Even when it comes to editing your profile, you are only given two options: erase and rename. An avatar option, or even the ability to save my favorite bowling ball would have been a definite improvement.", writes NintendoWorldReport. 4/10
