Sure, great looking games with useful and intuitive controls have been done already, but screw those guys. Pinbusters! seems to follow the train of thought that you haven't played a real bowling game until you've been immersed into a global competition of poorly scripted characters and controls that make me wish accelerometers were never invented. Before going any further I'd like to say that, having spent a few years around a bowling alley when I was growing up, I have a certain amount of respect for the sport and usually look forward to a clever simulation. Unfortunately, Pinbusters! falls short of this after you hit the menu system and never really recovers."
