    If you suffer the charm of pinball, if you love Star Wars and if you are looking for a game to always carry in your pocket, Star Wars Pinball for 3DS is a very good choice.

    Easy to pick up and play for a few minutes and still as fun as it was on the home console, the graphics not looking quite as good as on Wii U should not prevent anyone from picking up that version, as it is a pleasure to play while on the move.

    Despite some technical hiccups, I actually think handheld is a better version of the game than a console experience, and if you have the system for it, definitely get this one on the go.

    Despite being an inferior version compared to the Wii U, it offers 3 unique tables that are challenging and well representative of the Star Wars universe.

    Aside from one major bug that should be patched soon, Star Wars Pinball is a good stop-gap for when you absolutely have to get some pinball gaming in while on the go. But it's not going to come close to matching a real table.

    Star Wars Pinball is a classic game, based on the George Lucas' Universe. The table Design is inspired and everything works fine, but the annoying bug with the wifi connection must be addressed as soon as possible.

    Star Wars Pinball is better on the Wii U than on its handheld brother, but still a fun game to play. With different machines and the great soundtrack this game is okay. It’s up to you if you want to pay a good seven euro’s for the game.

    The game feels like more Star Wars than pinball, and at its core it’s just a dressed up pinball game with some nice extras. If you’re a pinball lover and a fan of the Star Wars franchise, you’ll be in heaven with this game. If you’re not, then it might not be for you.

    If you’re craving pinball on the go, it’s tough to beat the paltry $6.99 price tag. But for most, this is not the platform you’re looking for – and that’s no Jedi mind trick.

    Behind a laundry list of complaints is an exceptional game of pinball and a loving tribute to the star-spanning story of good vs. evil, but compared to the Wii U version it’s a downgrade in almost every way.

    Don't listen to the reviewers here as they're comparing this to the HD versions. Of course its not going to look as good as those. What weDon't listen to the reviewers here as they're comparing this to the HD versions. Of course its not going to look as good as those. What we do have here is Zen Studios best effort on the 3ds! Sound quality is top notch and I believe its the best of all the Zen 3d pinball games on the system! To get the best out of it though its needs to be played on the XL. One last thing is currently the leader boards are messing up the game causing the tables to crash. This can be circumvented be turning off the leader boards in the options menu. At the very least the tables can be played till a fix is finally available! Full Review »
