PC Magazine salutes Wii Sports: Bowling, but sees adverse health effects long-term
Columnist John C. Dvorak has some very positive things to say about Nintendo's Wii console, namely its bundled game Wii Sports. Actually, he's very impressed by Wii Sports: Bowling, to be precise. Being a man with a rather illustrious bowling past, he found the game to be dead-on as far as realistically translating real-life movement into in-game action goes. This is something we thought was so impressive about the game from our first moments with it, however we had no frame of reference as we never really excelled in the sport out in the real world.

What's odd about his piece, however, is that he claims prolonged play with the title will cause some adverse medical conditions in the player. This is something we ourselves can't believe, as we've had sessions that have lasted quite awhile, bordering on the double-digit hour time frame. Even those nights we never found ourselves to be physically fatigued in any way, aside from our feet (having stood up so long, y'know).

Do any of you suffer from cramps or pain from prolonged play with Wii Sports: Bowling?
