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!
this is a great game, i have always wanted to play a collection of real pinball games that has very good physics. This is it. if only it had monster bash. some reviews of this game say this table is on there, but it isn't. hopefully they will put it out on DLC. i would buy it in a second. i love this game and can't put it down.
I keep going back to this game, I would at least like to get ONE achievement before I send it back, long story short, if you didn't have luck with pinball machines in the arcade, then you wont have luck here. If you are some sort of pinball master then this is your game, I have not had good luck with it.

This game has about 15 tables and you will be entertained for about a weekend, But if you once knew one of these tables for real... You will have a ball with this. Overall, just a rent. But it gets a Solid 9/10 from me.
This game did not live up to my expectations. I was expecting an exciting set of games and it did not deliver.
I would have been better off playing the pinball game I have on my Xbox 360, much more exciting.

This game was amazing all around. The challenge was the best feature of the game by far. It was hard and fun at the same time, anyone who loves pinball must step up to the challenge. test your metal against some of the toughest most unique tables jammed in to one game. I also really like the arcade mode. Unlimited free pinball...AMAZING! it also come in handy to practice for the challenge. If you enjoy pinball or really want to test your skill this is the game for you. Must play for sure!
