    The quality of the tables in Zen Pinball brand is almost always indisputable. Star Wars Pinball is no exception, although there aren't many new elements compared to all the other collections available on the market.

    For those who call themselves pinball fans, this new coat of paint is a shiny one; and if you’re just a Star Wars enthusiast wandering into uncharted territory, you’re taking your first step into a larger world.

    Despite some camera and visual issues, this is an excellent addition to the Wii U eShop, and should be a part of anyone’s digital collection.

    Star Wars Pinball is probably the best game ever from Zen Studios. This game for the Wii U has the best virtual pinball machine that you can find.

    Star Wars Pinball is everything you'd expect from a pinball-game by Zen Studios, and more. The cabinets are brilliantly designed and are bursting at the seams with detail. From the simple R2-D2 bumpers to screen filling lightsaber duels and atmospheric sound effects or even fragments from the move, everything really breaths a love for Star Wars. Except maybe the price, because ten Euros for three cabinets is just way too much, even for the biggest Star Wars fan.

    Star Wars Pinball for Wii U is a flipper masterpiece, packed with content to keep you pounding away for hours. If you have already purchased the game on other platforms, you may re-evaluate the purchase just for the multiplayer options and the more generous dimensions of the GamePad.

    It may be a matter of preference when it comes to what Zen Pinball title is the best. It may be due to the fact that the Star Wars universe is more universally recognisable than Marvel's, for instance, but this particular title truly feels like the pinnacle of its pinball games so far.

    When you combine the great music, voice work, and amazing physics based pinball action with a great theme like Star Wars you get greatness in a product like this.

    This game is well made, but theres just not a lot of anything to keep me playing. I bought it on sale, played for a few hours, and have never touched it again. Unless you really love pinball, I wouldn't recommend it, even for a spur of the moment star wars fix (which is why I bought it) Full Review »

    Many hours of fun with this game, for such a cheap game I had covered my pinball adict dose for many months to come. Zen studios did a great job once again. Full Review »
