Tough game. Not near enough oil in the middle when I try to throw it slow,
but seems like a lot of oil outside. Reminds me of the A or C patterns on
the PBA tour. Been playing it a few days now and can't seem to break
160....about 50 pins below my league average.

Brunswick Circuit Pro should be out soon, and that will be a LOT better! :-)

I have played it three times and I find it harder than real bowling. I
also played tiger woods golf on the wii and I could not hit the ball
straight off of the tee. anywhere else on the course I could hit it
straight, but not off of the tee.

I have playing it too.

If I throw a straight ball, I can average about 190 per session but when
I try to play a hook, I only average about 140 or so. My buddy Rick, is
pretty good with the straight ball and has been averaging about 210.
When we go practice bowling, he only has a 90 (yes, ninety) average.

I don't think the game knows the concept of oil though unless it is
based on one pattern. I believe Brunswick has or is coming out with a
bowling game for the Wii and you will be unable to unlock different
bowling balls and lane conditions. I don't have my own Wii yet, so I
have no reason to purchase or find it yet.

I will say that it is pretty fun trying to get the big hook though.
