Pinball FX3 – Williams™ Pinball: Volume 6 is another great collection of pinball tables featuring authentic as well as remastered versions of classic tables. This volume includes Funhouse, Dr. Dude and His Excellent Ray as well as Space Station. These tables were some of the last by Williams to use alpha-numeric displays and while two of them have been digitally created before this is the first official virtual recreation of Space Station. The tables are very tricky and occasionally frustrating, but still fun to play and a great addition to any pinball collection.
Gameplay: The tables are not as over the top as other Pinball FX3 ones, but still quite challenging.
Graphics: Both the original and remastered versions of the three tables look great.
Sound: Very authentic, but there are some volume issues with the sounds
Zen Studios has wasted no time working their magic on the Williams™ pinball tables since getting the license and there’s already a slew of great packs available. It’s always exciting to see what’s next and we are happy to announce that the tables for Williams™ Pinball: Volume 6 have been announced. As always, it will feature a 3-pack of tables in all their classic simulated glory as well as re-mastered modern-day digital pinball extravaganzas
The resurgence in popularity of pinball has created a new market for virtual machines. These machines allow gamers to play digital recreations and mastered versions of classic games, and they can even be connected to your PC and other devices. Where vintage pinball machines are great collector’s items, virtual machines are perhaps a more practical way to preserve the games in history. Don’t let that stop you from investing in a real pinball machine as these are inherently cool, but there are some advantages to virtual machines
Pinball FX3 – Williams™ Pinball: Volume 5 offers faithful digital recreations of Tales of the Arabian Nights, Cirqus Voltaire, as well as No Good Gofers. In addition to playing these tables just like the original hardware, you can also experience them in remastered form with updated visuals, no animated characters as well as other features that bring them to life. No pinball fan will want to miss out on these three tables and combined they offer many hours of fun.
Gameplay: Great recreations of awesome pinball tables.
Graphics: The tables look great, especially when playing the remastered versions.
Sound: Very faithful to the original tables
A real blast from the past that is every bit as playable today as it was all those years ago. Very addictive and perfectly suited this is a great flagship title for the PSP minis and at its low price point you can’t afford not to miss out.
Gameplay: Just as good today as it was all those years ago.
Graphics: Identical to the Amiga version bar some slight ghosting.
With tables based around Back to The Future, Jaws and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, the Universal Classics Pinball pack is a must have for fans of the genre. All three of the tables on offer look great and are a lot of fun to play. The table designers have done an admirable job with fusing these licenses with pinball instead of simply using images based on the films. Unfortunately, none of the tables feature licensed music, which is really a pity for films like these that has such iconic soundtracks. However, apart from the music there is very little to fault here and these tables offer a nice break from all the Marvel and Star Wars tables available for the platform.
Gameplay: Three tables with great designs that are a lot of fun to play.
Graphics: Each table features plenty of visual elements from the films as well as some great looking 3D models.
Sound: The sound effects and voice acting are decent enough, but the lack of licensed music is a bummer
Pinball FX 3 is not just a small update compared to Pinball FX 2, but feels like a brand new game. It comes with a range of new features that are aimed at drawing in newcomers as well as keeping veterans busy for longer. Not only does the older tables look better than ever before, but the brand new challenges and cross-platform features provide added incentives to return to them. It is a pity that not all the Pinball FX 2 tables could make the transition to the new game, it is a relief that the majority can be imported to the new game without having to pay for them again. Pinball FX 3 is without a doubt one of the best pinball games available on the market and definitely doesn’t disappoint if you are a fan of the genre.
Gameplay: Plenty of new features that make it worth moving over from Pinball FX 2.
Graphics: Thanks to real-time lighting and shadow projection the tables look better than ever.
Sound: The guide can become a little annoying, but fortunately the game features plenty of audio options to customize your experience
