    Pinball FX 2 is definitely a PC game that should be experienced by all gamers out there, from the hardcore pinball fanatic to the casual pinball player alike.

    It has taken them a while, but Pinball FX2 has finally hitting the PC in full force. This is a great port that features a vastly improved interface and some great community features that should create quite a competitive community on the PC platform. If only I didn’t have to buy all my tables over again.

    Pinball FX2 is just good fun if you fancy a quick game of pinball. The ball physics are great, the visuals are top notch and, barring some dodgy voice acting here and there, the audio adds to the experience too.

    Even for a relative pinball novice like me, Pinball FX2 has a lot to offer. The feel of real pinball is here, in a game that takes full advantage of its freedom from physical restraints.

    Pinball FX2 is still pinball, and pinball is still best played on a real pinball table. But this is so good that it takes an extremely close second place. [Oct 2013, p.75]

    Suffice to say if you’re going to virtually pinball on the PC, this is the way to do it.

    This PC version of Pinball FX 2 is just as great as the others. Its still one of the best digital pinball games out there with superb physics, great table design and good multiplayer features.

    what can i say i love pinball and i love the originality of the table designs i have all tables for steam now (44 and counting) and most onwhat can i say i love pinball and i love the originality of the table designs i have all tables for steam now (44 and counting) and most on PS3 as well but PC steam is where it really shines brightest 1080p, vertical screen mode, it just runs so much better and smoother. PFX2 comes with one good free table sorcerer's lair and its a table for folks to try out Not to complain about them thinking every table should be free because its says free at the steam store page they have to make money some how right.

    I originally purchased this bundled with a bunch of other games. When I first played it I used a keyboard and I just didn't care for it. ThenI originally purchased this bundled with a bunch of other games. When I first played it I used a keyboard and I just didn't care for it. Then I read some reviews and plugged in a controller with feedback. I immediately returned and bought the full bundle to get more tables. Now I have all but a few tables. I love this game. It's an arcade on my PC. Sure it's not real pinball but this is it's own thing. It's got all of the tricks in it and it tweaks in a way to make the game quite interesting. Dare I say I prefer this to real pinball. Expand

    The game is free to play with one table included. You can try the other tables out for a limited score. You can buy the other tablesThe game is free to play with one table included. You can try the other tables out for a limited score. You can buy the other tables individually or as bundles. I just bought most of the tables from a humblebundle deal where you pay what you want.

    Those complaining about micro-transactions have no ground to stand on because the game is free to play.

    I really enjoy the Windows Store version that comes with the Mars table. Being a big fan of the original Pinball that shipped with Windows XP,I really enjoy the Windows Store version that comes with the Mars table. Being a big fan of the original Pinball that shipped with Windows XP, the game takes the classic to another level with HD graphics, lots of tables, and cool side attractions. My only gripe is the fact you have to pay for other tables vs. an unlocking scheme. The Xbox integration is really good too. Expand

    Good pinball game, though it does feel "sticky" with some of the physics at times. Balls will snap to some surfaces especially on the olderGood pinball game, though it does feel "sticky" with some of the physics at times. Balls will snap to some surfaces especially on the older tables. They recently added a free table(sorcerers lair) to anyone who plays.

    The options of buy a table, or buy a collection of tables are decent enough especially if you enjoy pinball games. Doesn't quite scratch my pinball desires, but it does it well enough that I've paid for the classic pack. As usual, your mileage may vary. But there are demo modes for all tables, so you do get a fair taste of what you're buying.

    Unplayable in super-widescreen setup (3 screens) as the menus don't cater for anything but the average monitor.
