Pinball Hall of Fame-The Gottlieb Collection

Without being to technical, except for a couple of SLOW tables, I enjoyed the pinball action. Being 63, I grew up with pinball, starting with machines in my parents restaurant. Because of different designs, some tables are more enjoyable than others, but in all, the final question is, did you enjoy the time spent in the playing, and I DID.

Mechanically good, but lacking in playability.

If you played the previous title on the will (Williams Collection), then you may be disappointed with this title. The game engine has stayed mostly the same, the ball travels and reacts with true to life response with a slight slow down on a few tables but nothing to noticeable. The real issue with the new installment is with the table selection, the new game offers older model table that have fewer goals and in my opinion less to do while playing.

Graphics 5/5
Its pinball, it looks like pinball, hey what else do you want it to look like.

Controls 5/5
Still very easy to pick up and play. The only control issue is finding the camera angle you prefer.

Gameplay 3/5
Here is my problem with the game. The tables are just to old for my taste, not alot to do on each table. The tables are just too similar in gameplay. If you are famillar with Jive time on the williams collection thats what alot of these tables play like. There are a few non-pinball games to play but they lose there novelty quickly.

Final 7/10
If you really like the modern pinball tables then this game may not be for you but if you like the slower classics then sit down and enjoy a zen moment with this game. If you like pinball you should try this game out its still a great pinball platform, the tables within the game will decide if its a keeper for you.
