Fair

This could have been super!

The graphics and sounds are very good. This would have been a great pinball except for one BIG problem. The pin ball table scrolls slower than the ball moves down the table! So, you have to guess when to flip as the ball will get to your flippers before you can see your flippers!! Sometimes the scoll works and sometimes it is too slow.

I LOVE pinball, couldn't wait for this to arrive. I bought the Williams Challenge after trying it. I put this one back in the shipping envelope after two rounds of each table. The tables are cluttered looking. There are no real objectives, they are repetitious, more than pinball should be. Even the tables feel repetitious, being very close in design and features. I tried each game, giving each one two shots to make sure I didn't miss anything, hoping to find one that redeems the game, there were none. The flippers are too numerous, some being in very strange places, having no true function, and they are hard to see. Instead of standing out, most of the flippers go into hiding, blending back into surface they are on. Although the graphics are colorful, they are flat looking rather than being 3D.

If you like pinball, try the Williams Pinball Challenge, it is excellent. Avoid Dream Pinball as it is very poorly designed. Another item is that the camera does not always follow the ball. You'll be hitting the bottom flippers by chance as the ball drops below your viewing level. The view control does not work as designed.
