I've always been a big fan on Wii Sports bowling, but tonight I happened to stumble upon something that frankly makes me mad.
So here's a scenario. you have to pick up a spare; there is 1 pin left, at the far right. You shift your player to the centre of the lane, then you bowl the bowl, making sure to skillfully twist your hand a little to the right to spin the ball and get that last pin.
Well unfortunately, I've come to realise skill has little to do with it.
Try this at home:
Get into the same position as described above, with 1 pin at the far right (or left). Now, bowl your ball but instead of twisting your wrist to the right in order to spin in towards the pin, twist your wrist to the left, in an attempt to make a gutterball at the opposite end of the track.
IT DOESN"T WORK! The ball still spins to the right, towards the pin!
Therefore, either twisting your wrist does absolutely nothing, or Wii sports helps you ensure your shot is always on -- or near -- target.
If we're to believe the Wii controller is everything it's supposed to be, this sort of thing should not be necessary.
I'm not trolling, I've been a big fan of the wii and still believe it has great potential, but this sort of thing is what is going to give it a bad name.
