    These tables have never looked better than they do on PS4, and the gameplay is authentic right down to the sound and pressure of each tables’ flippers.

    All in all, this is a fantastic version of the best video pinball game around. It looks absolutely gorgeous on the PS4, and the level of detail stands out to me on the tables played in a new and exciting way.

    With a new lighting system and a better frame-rate, this is Pinball Arcade's best version yet. There are not many new things if you already have it on another platform, but it is arguably the best pinball game ever.

    A return to the old days, in a very good way. If you're into pinball, you'll definitely want to pick this up.

The tables are incredibly lifelike and the controls are responsive. Great Graphics and Sound it's almost as good as the real thing. Even nudging by using the analogue stick feels natural and useful. Some of the tables are boring but with so many tables available there are more good than bad Full Review »

Yes there are a few glitches with game, but the developers listen to community feedback, and patch. Real pinball table simulation at its best from Far Sight Studios! Can't wait till the Addams Family Kickstarter this summer! New tables being released all the time, and great online tournaments with awesome prizes! Full Review »

    This game brought back great memories of playing pinball. Plus you only have to pay for it one time, not 50 cents every few minutes.
