Can I play "Brunswick Pro Bowling" without Kinect, with only a wireless controller on the Xbox 360?

No, I don't think so. The vast majority of games that use Kinect require it in order to play the game. I only know of one game that supports both the normal controller and Kinect - Child of Eden.

If the cover says "Requires Kinect Sensor" with a purple sticker, as Brunswick Pro Bowling does (see here) then you need the Kinect to play.

Child of Eden on the other hand, simply says "Better with kinect sensor" in sort of a "notification bar" style artwork (see here), as such the Kinect is optional.
