  • Summary: KISS fans will be disappointed by the distinct lack of KISS, and pinball fans will be disappointed by the distinct lack of pinball.

  1. Don't let our high ratings for the simple control and decent audio fool you into thinking "KISS Pinball" is worth more than a cursory look of disgust by anybody but the most desperate KISS or pinball fanatics with $10 to blow on this turd.
  2. There’s some pretty horrendous slowdown at times also, which is instant-death in a pinball game that relies on precise timing for ball aiming (not that you’d have much success at that anyway).

    Even devout soldiers of the KISS Army expecting pyrotechnics, blazing lights and vomited blood will be disappointed by dismal gameplay set to interminably looped hot licks, disorientating camera panning, and sterile voiceovers by Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.

    I know what makes good pinball. KISS Pinball is not good pinball. Dump the ten bucks you'd pay for this game down a real pin, if you can find one anywhere near you.
  5. KISS fans will be disappointed by the distinct lack of KISS, and pinball fans will be disappointed by the distinct lack of pinball.
  6. I've been sticking my finger in my mouth trying to hurl this filth back up. Maybe I can get KISS to "Lick It Up!"
  7. It's just plain awful. Even the most rabid of KISS fans would do well to avoid this piece of junk...Squeeze all you want; there's no possible way you could wring even a drop of enjoyment out of KISS Pinball.

    Sure, this may not have the graphics that anyone expected. People expect too much. I bought this game, and I love it. The fact that you can Sure, this may not have the graphics that anyone expected. People expect too much. I bought this game, and I love it. The fact that you can play your KISS CDs with it is awesome. The voice-overs are crappy, but that's ok. The reason that the game is crappy is that this was a PC game converted to a PSX game. So, you can't give this game a bad rap because of the graphics. The only time the game slows down is the Netherworld one. If you don't like it, DON'T PLAY THAT TABLE! Lastly, all pinball wizards, like myself, would love this game. That's why I give it a 10 out of 10. Collapse

    This game doesn't have the best graphics. But, it's cool. It's all about hand and eye cordination.

    Its terrible gameplay and bad graphics make this game bad. I wouldn't pay $10 for it.
