    When my boyfriend plays bowling the ball always drags to the left, When I play it's fine. Best we can figure is that he's twisting the wiimote a little right at the end of the swing. We're both using the same wiimote.

    For me it always goes to the right, though it is a variation to the right, but always a little, though still good fun

    You are right. It is because you twist your hand at the end of swing.

    The ball often curves to the left for me and lands in the gutter , and that in real life .I can't get that one to go straight anyhow . Throw the ball in the air down the lane (not in real life ) , that seemed to get strikes for me often . It does feel a bit like cheating , but its good when your loosing .

    If you want it to go straight all you have to do is concentrate on holding the Wiimote dead straight. Fairly easily.

    But I'll give you a little tip I will. You dont want to aim dead straight at the pins. If you are to be successful at this game you will need spin to get good.

    The cure for drifting left or right is to follow-through on your swing. Don't stop your arm just past your waist, keep it going until your hand is up level with your head.

    But, as mentioned, the best thing to do is use your natural drift by aiming off center, opposite of which way the ball drifts.

    I move my Mii all the way to the last dot near the gutter. I release at the bottom of the Mii swing and hook it(on purpose and more turn on the wiimote). I'm getting mid 200s every game but still can't get that nice 300.

    This same thing happens to me, I thought it was just because I was standing not directly in front of the tv due to my bed.

    if it keeps drifting to the left, just aim your bowl to the right abit. its sure to "turn" left back into the middle.

    The place the ball hits the lane will determine how much curve you will have regardless of how much, or little, you twist your wrist. There seems to be three places you can hit the lane, way far down, a little ways down, at the foul line (i know, so technical :lol:).

    Way down the lane will give you the least amount of curve. To do that, follow Ummagumma's advice and chuck it, releasing the ball way up by your face.

    The middle one will give you a moderate curve. To do that release the ball right after it passes the perpindicular to ground, ptg from here on in, point. This is what I've seen most people do naturally.

    To drop it at the foul line, you'll have to release the ball right at the ptg point. This is what the game instructs you to do and will give you a massive amount of curve.

    For me, I do what beneeboi suggests and turn my player a little to the right and move him to the right. Naturally, I release right after ptg so I almost always curve it.

    Yeah seems to get left for my parents too, only slightly though. I recommend moving your Mii over to the right and work for the spin, the spins more of a good thing then you might think.

    I think you should just keep going the way you're going, and kick everyone's ass!
