Description: This is an amazing bowling game for virtual reality with realistic physics and cool graphics. It’s a great way to surprise your friends and have fun with the company playing a classic bowling game without leaving your home. The physical model of this game is very detailed. It simulates the real ballistics of bowling ball. So you can throw the ball over a complex envelope trajectory for best results, just like professionals do. Be a part of the Bowling History starting with the end of the 19th century through different times up until present! Enjoy the game in a variety of bowling clubs from different towns around the world!
Review: I have to give it to the developers, ‘Let’s Bowl VR – Bowling Game’ might well be one of the best bowling games I have played so far let alone played in VR. Apart from a few little niggles about the physics of the ball it ticks all the right boxes and looks amazing. But there are things here that are pure annoying and the first has to be the stupid tablet glued to your hand. By all means, have one that you can pick up and carry around, but don’t stick it to the hand! Also, the lanes could do with a lot more customisation as well like dealing with the shine off the lane. But no matter what I say they all pale in comparison to the main problem with this game and this is its price. £13.59 is a massive amount to pay out and there just isn’t enough content here to justify it given that there are no multiplayer options! If you can get this for a fraction of the asking price it will be worth a look, but otherwise, you will just be wasting your money.
