The audio effects are strong, but the speech is velcity. It's fairly easy to pick your angles and pretend to throw the ball, but nailing the perfect angle for consistent strikes isn't. However, for anyone who has invested time into the intricacies of HVB's controls, competing against a player who takes this approach is about as much boling as playing against someone who repeatedly unleashes leg swipes in Super Street Fighter IV.

To truly master this game you must search for a variety of sweet spots to connect with the ten pins, that when hit result in a consistent strike.
There are details about HVB I didn't cover here, for example as well as unlocking characters, you can unlock better balls and new costumes, plus there are pleasing touches like when the Motion controller's orb flashes colours if you get a strike.
