Classic Game Room HD reviews Bowling for the Magnavox Odyssey 2 video game console. Also known as the Philips Videopac G7000 in Europe and other places, the O2 had some pretty cool games. This isn't one of them. In fact, this could be the worst "bowling" game ever created, if you can even call it bowling. Wii Sports Bowling this is not. Turn on your G-7000 and insert the enormous, handle bespeckled cartridge into the slot with a loud "CaCHunk!" sound. Turn on the power and be greeted with minutes of entertainment from giant blocks that do little more than move about the screen in an illogical manner. Classic Game Room loves the classics, but even in 1980 or '79 or whatever year this came out this game sucked. It was fun to review though, because in between the awesome games like K.C. Munchkin, Bioshock and Assault Heroes we need to review some duds? How can you know if a game is really good if you can't compare it to a game that is awful beyond words. Well, here's one word - BOWLING! Strike... out! This is the gutter whore of the gutter ball, the rancid hot dog of the bowling alley, the smelly shoes from the rental stand. This is BOWLING! on the Magnavox Odyssey 2 video game system. CGR reviews classic video games and the worst bowling video game ever made, Bowling! (not to be confused with Bowling for the Atari 2600, which was actually pretty good.) Retro reviews like you've never seen them before.
