  1. Fans of the silver balled game should definitely check out this collection because its one of the best, well-rounded pinball games ever made.
  2. However, the game is enjoyable overall, though really only a ‘must have’ for those who can score a million points with their eyes closed and one hand tied behind their back.

    i really liked this game, because it had two of my favorite tables that i can play when ever i want. the challenge mode was difficult ati really liked this game, because it had two of my favorite tables that i can play when ever i want. the challenge mode was difficult at times, and you can unlock all the tables in relatively little time. a real good value for some simple fun.

    Before Pinball Arcade existed we where blessed with this game. If you're a true pinball wizard but you can't afford a Pinball machine, wellBefore Pinball Arcade existed we where blessed with this game. If you're a true pinball wizard but you can't afford a Pinball machine, well you might not be able to afford this game either because it's one of the rarest PS3 games out there. I would be lying if I said I haven't played this game almost as much as every single PS3 game in my library (close to 100 games). Full Review »

    I gave the same title on Wii a 9 rating and decided that since they have added two more tables to the PS3 version and also updated to HDI gave the same title on Wii a 9 rating and decided that since they have added two more tables to the PS3 version and also updated to HD graphics this game is a perfect 10. There are a few very small things I don't like within this game, like when completing table goals a message pops up telling you so right overtop of your flippers in mid chaos to distract you but I don't have the heart to give this game anything other than a perfect 10 because as far as the similation of the tables goes, they are without a doubt spot on. The physics, ball weight and feedback of the balls bouncing off the bumpers really does a fantastic job making you feel as if you were playing the real machines. I actually played many of the machines in this collection is real life and its uncanny that they seem identical. I can make the same ramp shots and hit the same danger zones as in the real games. I'm still amazed they were able to replicate the gameplay dynamics as well as the tables themselves. For that reason I must give a perfect score. If you like pinball this collection is the holy grail and I recommend buying it first on this either Xbox or PS3, and secondarily on Wii. On Wii the numchucks do a very good job with the nudge/tilt and the Wii buttons actually feel the best as flipper buttons. If you like this then there is also a Gottlieb collection on Wii only (and ps2) but doesn't have the same perfection as this collection with respect to feeling as if playing a real table. None the less if you see any Pinball Hall of Fame collections, in my opinion they are the most realistic pinball sim out there. Full Review »
