If you are purchasing this in the hopes that it will fill in the hole left by no bowling game being included with the Move Sports Champion game, I would recommend leaving this one on the shelf. I am a fan of bowling for the Wii and was very excited about what the Move controller and PS3 would do for a bowling game. Well, I found out. It does nothing, at least as presented in this title. The physics of bowling, while rudimentary (perhaps) in the Wii game, atleast are present. In High Velocity Bowling, they are nonexistent. The approach is horrible, you have to throw the ball like you are a tossing an egg to a partner at a lame company picnic to avoid "overthrowing". The ball doesn't even begin to act like an actual bowling ball when released. Perhaps with a lot of playing time I could get used to the idea, but the game really doesn't do anything to make you WANT to play.
Right off the bat you can tell this game was not made for the Move controller, only adapted for it much later. Bad on Sony for packaging this old PSN game and releasing it to the public as a Move-compatable game. It is clearly only compatible in the loosest sense.

I picked up this game today and fell in love with it from the start. I've always enjoyed wii bowling but there was no depth to the game. This game has it. Tons of unlocks and replay value. Lots of challenges and the online mode is awesome even though I've been getting killed online in some matches, it's still fun. You do NOT have to get the patch for the Move to be used. It's included with the game. I just put it and and started playing. If you've looking for a bowling game with everything that wii bowling has been missing then, look no further than High Velocity Bowling.

Does anyone know how this is different than the HVB on the PSN? The move support is supposed to come in a free patch. Why would anyone spend 40 bucks when they can get it for 5 off the Playstation store? Maybe I'm missing something, can someone please enlighten me?
