"Very nice Free-to-Play game but with a lot of advertising. All table/DLCs without ads cost money. Sorcerer's Lair table w/o ads is free in ingame-shop!"

Ever since I was a young boy, I played the silver ball. No, wait, I'm thinking of Tommy. Either way, pinball has been an important part of my life whenever it has been. Time marches on though, and you can't just go play pinball like you used to. Down at the local hangout, by the soda fountain, with flippers flipping, balls always bouncing, to the left and to the right, lights flashing, eplileptic kids flailing about on the floor, those days, back then, they're gone.

All is not lost though. Pinball FX2 is here to fill that void left by the demise of the pinball machine with software pinball that surpasses the original in every way except for those it does not. When it comes down to it, what you really lose is having an actual pinball table in front of you. You can never recreate that exact feel, the solid wood gripped firmly in your hands as you aim for ever higher scores while deftly avoiding the flailing epileptic kids.

That's just the way it has to be though, and there are plenty of good things about virtual pinball that makes it well worth a play. The tables can be more elaborate than a real pinball table ever could, and they certainly are lovely to look at. Any pinball table you want is right there on your television, no need for a huge arcade to house all of your games. Heck, with a wireless xbox controller, you even get some vibration when you shake the table.

If you loved pinball when you were a kid, or know someone who did, give Pinball FX2 a try. It's the next best thing to being there again, reliving those memories, and best of all, you won't have to step over any epileptics to do it.

The Tables are reasonably priced and all carry their own feel and play very well. I haven't liked a single pinball game since Pinball Fantasies on the Amiga and I'm oh so glad this finally tops it.

Did you love old school pinball games like Psycho Pinball, Slam Tilt, Epic Pinball and Pinball Fantasies? Well, Pinball FX 2 is for you. Brilliant graphics, good gameplay, many tables (occasionally available in cheap game bundles) and fun way to compare scores to your Steam friends.

It is the first pinball game in years that keeps me playing!

Great game, but exclusively comes with a free table! Lots of different tables to choose/buy from! For example 'The walking Dead', 'Plants vs Zombies', 'Marvel' and loads more! There are 8 different table views to choose from.

Therefore, I can reccomend this game!

If you don't have the $$$ for a real table, then get this game. The DLC is great and amazingly good value. From South Park to Star Wars, there's lots of tables and they all play really well.

Way too difficult and time-consuming to be worth playing.

I have about 20 tables that I've picked up through sales and such over time. Sure, the game involves batting a ball around. Sure, you get points. But this is about as much pinball as Sonic Spinball was. Every single table has a ridiculously drawn out set of goals you have to meet to get anywhere near the final mode.

How is anyone supposed to clear Fear Itself, Inifinity Gauntlet, or Star Wars Ep. 4 within any kind of reasonable time? Look at classic pins like Addams Family, Twilight Zone, Monster Bash, Tales of the Arabain Nights, or Theatre of Magic. Someone who knows what they're doing can get through all of the modes and into the wizard mode with about 15 minutes of playing.

When I go to YouTube, every single table's wizard mode takes at least 50 minutes to over an hour of (what I assume to be) truly excellent playing. Star Wars Ep. 5? Gotta get through six separate stages of three checkpoints each. Fear Itself? Hope you like clearing the... seven(?) worthies. Don't mess up that last shot, or you have to start the whole mode over. Infinity Gauntlet? THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE ALIVE TODAY THAN HAVE EVER DIED. DID YOU KNOW THAT? ADAM WARLOCK WILL MAKE SURE YOU DON'T FORGET.

I tried changing the difficulty of the tables, but I don't see that it does anything. Some ball saver time limits might be increased, but the modes aren't any easier to complete. You'd think that somewhere around "very easy", they'd do something like allow you to pick up where you left off during a given mode. Timeshock, Big Race USA and Fantastic Journey by Pro Pinball are great examples of challenging games with reasonable goals and measureable progress through them.

I want to like these tables. I really do. They're all good-looking and some of them are pretty clever. But holy balls, they take forever to feel like you've accomplished anything. Some people might say "Learn to play, noob. These tables are meant to be hard." I counter that there's a sport called Takraw which is like volleyball with nothing but bicycle kicks. It's a ridiculuosly hard sport to play. Does that make it the best sport in the world? Is Checkers better than Chess? Is American Football better than Soccer? More difficult doesn't make something better.

HomeboyOne was correct in his review in that the game has way too much latency on controls. Graphics are outstanding. Sound is also top notch. I think the different tables are overpriced, but that's just me. Would only buy a new table on sale. But back to the controls. Without more responsive controls, what could have been an outstanding game, is knocked out of contention. I have a top notch system, and tried turning down all graphics options, only to still have the same latency on the controls. For me, because of the slow responding controls, I find this to be unplayable. Would not recommend this game as it stands right now.

The level of physics and magnet cheating is as infuratingly real as a proper Pinball table but with the extra umph of clever CGI, cut scenes and voice overs.

The Star Wars tables are Deffinitely worth a buy.

This game can get a bit pricy if you buy all the DLC (mostly single tables for 4 bucks each).
I mean if you were buying the game as a complete stand alone with all the DLC tables included I doubt anyone would see 165 bucks as a good deal for what you get.
Luckly I bought when they had a discounted package deal. Because if I had just downloaded the "free" game and then considered the "DLC" prices I might of given it a pass. Which would of been a real shame, because it's a lot of fun.

Simple Controls, Nice Gameplay for a Pinball game. All of the tables are filled with features and there are leaderboards and other interactive features. It isn't a perfect experience though. There are a lot of tables you can be able to play on but apart from the one you begin with, you have to pay for additional tables, they aren't overly expensive but I just kind of wish the game came with more tables from the beginning. I still recommend the game and you can treat the first table kind of as a trail for the whole experience to see if you like it. I personally do like it quite a bit and I would recommend trying it out. It is free after all and you can't argue with free stuff.
