    Zen Studios has done it again! Not only is the Plants vs. Zombies table as addicting and fun as the original game, but its design and feature set make it an instant classic on the Zen Pinball platform.

    It's tonally perfect, and it's a hell of a lot of fun. [Issue#224, p.81]

    If you have tried Zen Pinball before and came away unimpressed, there is little here to warrant taking another look. If, however, you're a fan or just fancy giving a pinball videogame a try, then Zen Pinball 2 really is as good as it gets.

    Casual pinball players will love the Plants vs. Zombies table, and pro players have access to a great selection of Zen's most popular tables.

    Zen pinball 2. is to begin with a free update for existing owners of any of zens pinball tables. with vastly improved load times for the initial zen 2 engine to load up and each table now loads within seconds. all the existing tables can be imported into the zen 2 engine or menu select screen and they have all been updated with better graphics, ball physics and some seem to have had there score system tweeked to allow for higher scores and a more enjoyable game. there are new trophies for all tables to with new leaderboards and an all tables owned leaderboard plus the freinds team leaderboard isback. The new avengers pack that arrived with the update is a set of good tables and is worth adding to any serious zen player. overall good as zen have given back to the fans by making zen 2 backward compatible and also any new tables you buy will also be available for ps vita free or vice versa. good news all round. update now Full Review »

    This is the best video pinball game ever made. Literally the only flaw I find in the game is that checking scores and trophies are not in the primary r-stick column as they were in Marvel Pinball and are relegated to buttons on the menu. Small potatoes, right?

    The physics are satisfying and skill-based. The game encourages the player with comically high point values and even RPG elements in tables like Ninja Gaiden and Epic Quest. The graphics are colorful and sharp, the sound is dense and realistic. Licensed tables like Plants vs Zombies make particularly fantastic use of sound.

    Fun title that you can play for 15 minutes or 2 hours. Listening to music or podcasts through the custom soundtrack option makes it all the more appealing. Take it on the go with Vita crossbuy. ZEN!

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. Para mi el mejor de los dos títulos de pinball que hay ahora mismo en cabeza. Muchísimas mesas, muy divertidas y con muchas animaciones o misiones. La música y el sonido cumplen perfectamente.
    A veces resulta poco creíble por la cantidad de tiempo que llevamos sin que la bola se pierda, pero también puede ser un punto a favor. Trofeos o logros ocultos, records etc..
    En resumen divertido juego y las mesas mucho mas económicas que las de la competencia. Yo tengo los dos juegos y el precio que hay que pagar por las mesas me parece mucho mas asequibles o menos abusivo en zen pinball.
