So I grew up around real-life pinball tables yet never spent much time on them. The reason is that I had 'better' things to do at the arcade: Space Invaders, Asteroids, Galaga, Paperboy, Double Dragon, etc. were all more important to me than pinball. But this game has me wishing that wasn't the case! In fact, if I had a time machine I would go back and try all of those tables in real life!
I know I haven't said much about the game itself, and I'm not going to either. The truth is I don't even know much about pinball. I'll just give you a couple reasons why I think this game is such a success to me:
--each table feels genuinely different which adds to replayability
--the leaderboard system is great: it got me to add friends for chasing high scores and I've also been telling family members to try this out--there's nothing like beating your sister or cousin or even long lost uncle!
--everyone gets a free table, which is a pretty good one in and of itself (just try it!)
--love the sound bytes (especially for Star Wars tables) as they really add to the overall atmosphere
--it's still fun even if your not very good at it (like me)
--it got me to write this review
