    $29.99 is a great price for this level of digital pinball perfection. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking this collection up. I’m looking forward to what Zen Studios is cooking up next!

    Star Wars Pinball is a great collection of themed tables, and it manages to fit as many references from the series to please any Jedi or Sith Lord. Of course, if you’re not a fan of either Star Wars or pinball, I would first recommend Zen Studios’ other pinball tables or other Star Wars games. But if you adore the franchise, this is a fun and addictive way to re-experience the galactic fantasy world. The Force is strong with this one.

    What more could you ask for from a themed pinball experience? Zen’s love for the most entertaining sport and its source media is unquestioned at this point, and with their latest foray onto the Nintendo Switch they’ve more than proven their passion. They’ve created the ultimate Star Wars pinball experience for fans old and new alike, a collection of nostalgia that has unlimited pinball power.

    While Star Wars Pinball is all pinball, the number of available tables and modes make for a good variety of gameplay. It's a perfect game for the Switch, providing you with bite-sized to hours long play while on the go, and connected play options while you're at home and logged into your WiFi. The game is a real treat for Star Wars fans, but even those with only a casual interest in the saga will find themselves enjoying the excellent pinball action.

    While I don't have much pinball experience, Star Wars Pinball is easily my favorite game in the genre. It isn't just a love letter to Star Wars; it's an anthology of love poetry that spans the breadth of a galaxy long ago and far, far away.

    One of the most complete pinball games on the market, with 19 tables, lots of game modes (including career) and a strong online community element -choose your side of the Force- that make it one of the better pinball games on the market. Add all the Star Wars charm, characters, music... and sure you will fall in love if you try it.

    This is the Pïnball game you are looking for... especially if you are a Star Wars fan. There are 19 digital tables inspired by movies and animated series, a career mode with a lot of challenges, and you can experience them with the configuration that suits you the most en Switch (touch controls, vertical play, HD Rumble...), which makes Star Wars Pinball something very attractive, preferably on handheld mode.

Playing in vertical mode is a game changer forIf you like pinball and Star Wars, this game is as close to perfection as you're likely to get. Playing in vertical mode is a game changer for pinball games, the HD rumble is very immersive, and the value is frankly incredible (19 intricate licensed tables for $30 feels like robbery). The career mode is surprisingly well thought out too. The gameplay is more addicting that you're likely prepared for. After all, it's just pinball, right? Prepare to be wrong. Minus one point for some of the voice acting. Really though, this game is perfection. Expand
