Disclosure - I am such a video pinball addict that I own Zen Pinball from the PSN as well as two other versions of this game, on PS2 and PSP. There is just something about pinball that feeds the hardcore "skill" gamer in me. It's punishing at times, loaded with lights and sounds, numerous biofeedback rushes of adrenaline from making shots and beating high scores - it's an "old school gamer's" delight.

So perhaps I was predisposed to liking this game. Still, I tried to evaluate it honestly and rigorously.

***************

Graphics: WOW. WOW!!!! I own this game on PS2 and PSP, and the PS3 visuals blow those games away handily. Running in 1080p at a silky smooth 60fps, The visuals are just spectacular. Jaggies are almost completely non-existent. No longer do we have to suffer through subpar textures - the playing fields are just exquisite, all text is clear and readable, reflections and lighting are realistic - it's just stunningly beautiful.

***************

Control: I have noticed absolutely no lag with my setup. The wireless controllers work fine with this game. L1 and R1 control the flippers, while the left and right stick control the plungers and tilt functions. The fact that there is no sixaxis tilt is odd, but I'd rather use the more accurate stick, anyway.

The camera controls offer a lot of choices - five views each for "smart cam" and "full view" which are dynamic and fixed views, respectively.

***************

Gameplay: If you've played another version of Williams Pinball HOF, you'll have a good idea of what to expect. Some tables are unlocked for free play, others require credits. Achieving table goals earns credits to unlock the pay tables. Tutorial videos outline the ways to achieve table goals.

Well, my first review, but had to share my pinball story and love for the Williams Pinball Collection on PS3, Ive been playing pinball over 30 years and Mastered one game in this collection over a period of 3 months in 2002 at Arizona's biggest arcade (Gameworks) when I was unemployed, nothing to be proud of, but I was addicted and found a new goal for 3 month's of my life and enjoyed every moment mastering Medieval Madness. I could spend a whole day playing on 50 cents, wining game after game, I never knew the history of this pinball machine, just thought it was amusing, "the best and funniest one liners in any pinball machine ever made !", It was the only pinball machine that had waiting lines, and draws a crowd when your running up a High Score, "really !". "The final battle for the kingdom is exciting", the local pinball geeks took this machine and the High Scores "very serious", (I was like the NEO of Medieval Madness for a while), once I mastered and broke all the records at that arcade (over 600,000,000 score) I moved on, found a good job and laid that chapter of my life to rest. "Or did I ?", now I have Williams Pinball Hall of Fame, a 1080P 3D HD T.V, PS3 and my 2 favorite pinball machines Medieval Madness and Tales Of The Arabian Nights, a new journey begins, "look out for JWA !".Read more ›

I own this game on Wii and PSP. Now with the recent Hi-Def releases I own it on both Xbox 360 & PS3 also. Both purchased at Amazon for $29.49 (more than $10 off retail.) That comes out to $2.27 per pin - that's insane value given the excellent implementation.

Is it worth adding this title if I own it on Wii, PS2 or PSP? Absolutely! You get 3 new tables - No Good Gophers, Arabian Nights & Medieval Madness. All of these are newer Solid State pins with complex and fun rule sets. You also get the Hi-Def graphics which blow the previous Wii version's graphics away. Finally there are online high score boards, but unfortunately no online tournaments or Friends High Scores....yet. Can the develepors implement this...I truly have no idea but my guess is that if there is support it is possible!

Even if you have only a casual interest in Pinball I highly recommend this game. If you love pinball this is a MUST buy. I'd go so far as to say it's worth buying an Xbox 360 or PS3 just to play this game if you are a pinball freak. The ball physics and table modeling is spot on. Sound is authentic. Nothing beats the feel of this game except owning the real pins which is a bit more expensive and takes up a great deal more room.

If you've never played pinball but are interested you should give this a try...probably the cheapest, easiest way to get a good sampling of some of the best tables ever.

A request for all new and old fans, if you buy this game and like it, please post a positive review and spread the word to your friends and acquaintances. We want to see more tables issued on disc or through downloadable content.
