Very Good

fun road trip game

This game is great for road trips. It is always a great way to pass time on those long road trips because scoring big and not losing all of your balls in 10 minuies is fun anytime I say. It's also great because it's a pinball game you will never play. The unrealism of it makes it all worthwhile.

Not a great Pinball Game

I spent more time killing aliens than actually really playing pinball - it is ok as a rental wouldn't purchase.

Cool Pinball game

This game is good. It starts off pretty challenging, but it can definitely be mastered given enough time. It's cool to have a pinball game where right in the middle, the ball opens up, you become Samus, and blow up some enemies, then return to ball form and play some more pinball. It's great for both the Metroid factor and great for the solid pinball feel it has. The game really could do with a bit more variety in the boards, in my opinion, but the boards they provide are well thought out, laid out, and developed. The multiplayer is probably the weakest part of the game, but honestly, it is weird complaining about a pinball game's multiplayer abilities (really, now, who gets a pinball game for multiplayer?). The multiplayer was most likely an afterthought, and it was treated as such during its development (looks to me like it was a proof of concept that someone decided "heck, why not slap it in the game?"). However, when you play pinball, it is for the single player mode, and Metroid Pinball delivers a fun game that can keep a video pinball player very happy. Those that like Metroid on to of that (like I do) will find it only that much more enjoyable.
