    If you have Pinball FX 2, then you would be doing the pinball world an injustice by not grabbing this bargain of a DLC package.

    With all the challenges and brilliantly designed tables, it's hard not to push just about anyone into playing Marvel Pinball.

    For pinball fans, this is a must-buy. The tables are extremely detailed, the framerate rarely falters, the tables and missions are challenging, and tilting with the SIXAXIS/DualShock 3 controller is more rewarding than just using a stick.

    Overall, the quality of the tables is extremely high, and you'll most likely need to play for hours on end before you discover everything each has to offer.

    It's the best pinball experience to be found on the PS3 and is easily superior to Zen Studios' last title, Zen Pinball.

    Marvell Pinball is a recommended acquisition, almost a must for genre fans, and also a great chance for newcomers to try how has this genre evolved in the high definition era.

    What a bummer--we had high hopes for this one. [Jan 2011, p.83]

    I'm five years old and play this with my dad. This game is fun. I think it rocks! Captain America is my favorite table.

    call me crazy but i generally take a game for what it is. this IS pinball on your t.v. so there are expectations i wont have versus thecall me crazy but i generally take a game for what it is. this IS pinball on your t.v. so there are expectations i wont have versus the cabinet version and the game get a 10. crazy right? on top of that i bought zen pinball months ago so i know the companies quality. i got what i was hoping for. fast action pinball based on marvel comics blade, wolverine, spiderman and ironman each having his own table. zen learned a lot from its zen pinball game and user feedback. being on the good end of untreated adhd i need you to keep me occupied and marvel pinball does that as a pinball game. each of the four tables have weapons, or boss battles, things to do, lights and sounds, and they are all uniquely different. will it pull you away from black ops no. not unless you enjoy pinball more than a first person shooter. your scores are updated and if you have a friend who has the game you get hero points based on their scores. yes hero points have trophies also making you want to go online and make friends. with voice chat and ps3eye support this game should be named zen pinball 2: marvel comics. my complaint is the camera. i have no suggestions on what to do to fix it as it is ON your t.v. but i also don't like there placement of the camera view on the square button. personally i feel like if i want to lock the camera per table i should be able to as i am a less than graceful player who in the middle of a game accidentally changes the view. no you cannot pause the game or change it while the ball rests at the plunger. and their are multiple views. i find that this disorients me enough that i usually lose that ball so if i am near a high score i cant get excited like i want to. other player play different and have smaller fingers i guess. despite that its a great pinball game and it looks as if they may add on tables based on more marvel characters. i cant wait. 9 Expand

High detailed models, good physics...The blade table is amazing! We must see that this is primarily pinball game, and only secondarily about the Marvel Heroes.
    I can't understand some critics...
