    The triggers control the flippers, and the ball physics are outstanding - every hit feels like it has real weight. [Nov 2004, p.77]
  2. Although the game doesn't have too many bonus features and the different tables are similar in design, you still get 4 challenging and very realistic looking pinball tables at your disposal.

    Great game for what it is. But I agree with one of the last reviewers, if Pure Pinball 2 can license a few well known tables (KISS!), it would rock!

Nice high score tracking system. 3. There's no other xbox game like it. 4. All 4 tables are fun. CONS: 1. It seriously could have used a custom soundtrack. 2. The hot girls on the cover are just to lure people in and have nothing to do with the game. 3. It feels bare bones; it could have used some extra features or options. Full Review »
