    Pinball Arcade is simply one of the best pinball games I've ever played, and should be put at the top of the class with other iOS pinball elites.

    Pinball Arcade is an impressive title, and one that is bound to please pinball fans. It's a shame a couple of issues get in the way.

    Despite some minor control annoyances and the pay-wall, this is a must have app for lovers of pinball, especially those that used to pump coins into the machines when arcades were in their heyday.

    Simply the best pinball simulation on the iPad. I used to play it a lot on the PS3 and always found it weird that it looks so much crisper and clearer on the iPad. This has changed with the latest super patch but still, the iPad version is a beautiful rendition of famous and not so famous pinball tables. Expand
