    If you like Pinball FX 2 you will love these Marvel tables. They are great! If you are a pinball fan and have not tried Pinball FX 2 what are you waiting for?

    Generally a terrific table set. I would test out each table individually before deciding to go for the whole package. Quality is pretty solid across all of the tables.

    Blade is interestingly laid out, but it doesn't flow as well as most of the other tables. Still, it's fun, there's plenty to do on it, and the day/night transition thing is a blast. Very good artwork as one would come to

    Blade is interestingly laid out, but it doesn't flow as well as most of the other tables. Still, it's fun, there's plenty to do on it, and the day/night transition thing is a blast. Very good artwork as one would come to expect from Pinball FX tables.

    Spider Man has a ton of crazy ramps befitting the name, and few things to interrupt play flow. It's pretty easy, but that's part of the fun. The voice clips are annoying, but I guess that's also fitting.

    Wolverine is great. It's more difficult, but it's still solid. There's a spinning wheel that your ball is held onto and then dropped from; this is a nice little gimmick, but occasionally it dumps the ball straight between your flippers. Aside from that, it's a very nice table. The special effects, artwork, sound effects, and music are possibly the best of the four.

    Iron Man I don't like as much. Lots of ramps, but they don't really do anything outside of the missions (a couple thousand points here or there, which is pennies compared to the millions you get from the missions). There's a ball lock right-of-center that requires you smack a couple targets blocking it before you can get your ball in. Those targets happen to be oriented directly towards the spot between the two flippers. Whoops! The music isn't as great, the missions aren't as wacky, the sounds and voice clips are weird, and there's no neat gimmicks to it.

    But when the game does things well, it does them really well. Activating Dr. Doom's multiball is a joy, and trying to keep those four balls in play makes for quite a feat – but when you hear the Super Jackpot has been hit you know you've done something right. Even when non-standard things such as The Human Torch lighting the ball on fire and the ball absorbing Dr. Doom's power in other modes are not as distracting as you might think – and they fit really well into the game.

    Marvel Pinball is a surprisingly good expansion that adds some of Marvels most iconic superheroes to an already good game. It's a shame that some of the level bosses aren't impressive. Just like the original Pinball FX2 game, this expansion is meant for people that don't mind breaking their own highscores over and over again.

    Regardless of Marvel's heroes and villains, Pinball FX 2's realistic and engaging pinball gameplay is as close to bringing back the glory of pinball's Golden Age as it gets.
