Critics generally gave mixed to positive reviews to the game. Most reviewers disliked the graphics which were considered rather poor, but praised its realism and gameplay that appealed to bowling fans. To this day Circuit is still considered one of the best bowling games released.

IGN 8/10
PlayStation Magazine 3/10[1]

A sequel, called Brunswick Circuit Pro Bowling 2 was only released for the PS1. It featured more characters (now including female characters), an easier throw system and many others. It was considered more of an add-on or updated version than a true sequel. IGN gave it an 8.0 but once again criticizing the poor graphics.[2] OPM said that "some things are just not worth recreating on the PlayStation"
