Pinball Done Right

To keep it simple: If you like pinball you'll like this game.
This is one of the most accurate pinball sims ever created. Physics are dead on and the graphics are great. This is the closest you can possibly come to playing the real thing. Crave Games learned from thier mistakes on the Gottlieb Collection and delievered a perfect product with the Williams Collection (not to mention that Williams designed better tables to begin with)
The game includes many classic tables, including Pinbot and Funpark.
One important thing to note is the differnce between this version and the one that came out for the wii about a year ago. While I think that the montion controls on the wii version are far superior and more akin to the real thing (I especialy love the motion controls for nudging) the 360 version has three extra tables and crisper HD graphics. I personally say rent them both and hope for a sequel (the Bally collection anyone?).

I was a kid in the 70's,and played all the pinball games that this game has on it. So I can tell you this game is about as realistic as they come.From the bumpers sticking to the game being tilted.its all there.
The reason I gave it a 7 and not a ten is for 3 reasons.
1. The camera angles are not the same on all the tables. And if you are playing a ternament it will mess you up. The zoom works on some tables, but not others.
2. The only thing to unlock is the free play for 2 or more players.
Freeplay means you dont have to earn tokens to play more than one player.
3. There are no more tables to unlock. What you see in the arcade is what you get.Nothing else in there is avaliable.

But do not get me wrong,this game rocks and is not easy to master.
Ive gotten achevments,but they was not easaly gotten.Which to me makes it more of a challange.And that I like.
Rent this game,to play with your family, your mom and dad will thank you for it.

This will be 3rd version of this game I have bought. I have it on Wii and PSP. This version is by far the best! Better graphics and extra tables makes it a worthy buy! Great tables from the past, only thing missing is Magna-Save from Black Knight. MUST BUY for Pinball fans like me and my wife!
