    Senran Kagura Peach Ball has earned every bit of its Mature rating, and I’m honestly surprised that it made its way to a Nintendo platform, let alone the Nintendo Switch. Fans of the series will no doubt have trouble keeping their eyes locked on their pinballs while still feverishly fondling their flippers. And to anyone else curious, you might find yourself as surprised as I was. I guess, after all, this game does have a happy ending.

    Senran Kagura Peach Ball is a pinball gaming masterpiece, but it's also incredibly light on content. There's just five characters and two tables, which really isn't a lot. Still, the content that is here is incredibly polished, gorgeous and addictive. These two tables are some of the most fun and jam-packed video game pinball tables I've ever experience, and if the game had just a few more of them, it would be a must-have for any pinball fans looking for their next adventure.

    Senran Kagura: Peach Ball is hampered by a lack of content. The five different storyline paths are fine, but the presence of only two tables hurts the game. The two tables are designed well, even if they're similar to one another, and the ease with which one can achieve high scores makes it encouraging for both pinball newcomers and veterans alike. At the moment, you need to be a huge franchise fan to pick up this title, but if you're a pinball fan who doesn't mind the overly suggestive look and the ridiculous story, Peach Ball is worth checking out if it goes on sale.

    The only reason why we would recommend this game is if you’re looking for an erotic pinball. Other than that, it’s a game with strange physics and not a lot of content, which makes other pinballs out there a better option.

    This spin-off features a visually rich environment, fun gameplay mechanics and a myriad of unlockable content but it would have been more enjoyable if the game featured more characters and a greater variety of pinball tables.

    So there is some casual fun to be had in the video pinball side of things but it would be much more fun if the game gave you better control over the ball. You can tilt the table to move the ball up or down but this is hit or miss and it seems like the game wants you to make use of this function more than you expect. But if you’re interested in a solid pinball game then you might want to look elsewhere and if you’re here for the Senran Kagura side of things then the overall game will have more on offer with cutscenes featuring interactions between the girls as they bring each other back to human form and other activities.

    All in all, Senran Kagura Peach Ball feels less like a game than a poorly-crafted joke about anime, porn, and video games.

    BEST PINBALL GAME SINCE PINBALL FANTASIES (1992)

    I've always been a big fan of both Senran Kagura games and pinball too, so this was appealing to me from the get-go. Before you dismiss me as some blind-ass fanboy hear me out... This means I had large expectations for this game (which means I could have easily been disappointed if it failed to meet my large expectations). Instead however, this has turned out to not only be my favourite Kagura game this far... but also my favourite ever pinball game too!

    PROS:
    >Excellent mechanics, animations, sound, physics, addictive gameplay and fun "sexy challenge" modes which break up the monotony which ususally hinders the pinball genre.
    >Story mode is hillarious and each character has their own series of challenges which all unlock extra content as you complete each story arc.
    >Love the theme of furry balls and the theme of having to humanise your favourite characters and the way they interact with your gameplay throughout.
    >Buying on the Switch gives you the uncensored version which Sony are too woke to allow on their precious SJW platform - F**K SONY!

    CONS:
    >There are only 2 tables and I really wish there were more. Maybe they will add more as DLC which I would happily purchase to expand on this excellent game.
    >This will likely be the final game in the series thanks to Sony's censorship policy which caused the creator of the series to leave Marvellous - F**K SONY!

Les fans de la licence y trouveront largement leur compte, même plus, tandis que les autres joueurs regarderont d’un petit air méprisant les screenshots du jeu sur l’Eshop. La première partie du titre est un jeu de flipper plutôt sympatique, avec un mode story qui a le mérite d’exister. Le gameplay et la physique de balle est plutôt bon et respectueux et les plateaux sont sympathiques, quoique moins profond que les nombreux plateaux proposés par d’autres jeux de flipper sur Switch, comme FX Pinball par exemple. La seconde partie est une simulation d’habillage, de déshabillage, d’effeuillage et de caresse. Et c’est justement cette seconde face du jeu qui fera débat. Ma note reflétera la qualité du jeu de flipper, pour le reste c’est vous qui voyez… Expand

It actually is a lot of fun with flashy effectsThis game which has an asking price of only $40 is a simple one - Pinball with anime girls. It actually is a lot of fun with flashy effects and music that really sucks you into the pinball experience, which is nice since the creator made this game because he felt pinball was a dying art both in real life and in games. I even liked the silly story of girls turning into animals and you trying to save them, along with the funny hijinks that went with that. The game itself follows most the Senran Kagura tropes though, namely that once you've played it for about 15 minutes you know you're going to play the same game on repeat until you're done. Especially when there were only 2 stages in the whole game you kept coming back to. Still, this game is a lot of fun if you want a pinball game that is ridiculous. Maybe wait for a sale though. Expand
