If you're just dipping your toe into Pinball FX2, this is not the place to do it. I instead suggest instead Mars, Marvel Fantastic Four, or Epic Quest.

If you've played Zen's tables for awhile this pack can be a very good experience. The 4 tables include 2 tables I enjoy, 1 table I'm neutral on, and 1 table that I (and most people) can't stand.

All of these tables have one thing in common. Zen sometimes has features on their tables that have no way of being replicated on real tables. Some tables have more of these elements than others. None of these tables are like that. Nearly all features of all 4 of these tables could be replicated on a real pinball cabinet. Some people appreciate this style of table. Others don't care much.

Tesla - Enjoy - I shouldn't like this table as much as I do. The flow is only so-so, the modes are very difficult to launch, and the scoring is low. That said, I can't stop loving it. The table has that awesome turn of the 20th century quasi-steampunk SCIENCE! theme that works really well for me, and once you get a feel for the table you can play it for quite awhile. Rating: B+

El Dorado - Enjoy - I initially wanted to like this table but was frustrated by it. I like the Indiana Jones theme quite a bit and the table flow is very good, but I couldn't quite get the hang of it. Some perseverance and reading the strategy guide has really helped increase my enjoyment of the table. The table plays very "left side" vs "right side" IMO, which is hard to explain until you've played it a bit. This is also a fast moving table. Rating: B

Shaman - Neutral - While I figured out how to like El Dorado, I've never managed to do it with Shaman. This is a table that moves very quickly and outlane drains are somewhat common. Bondo's review mentioning the top half of the table being kind of dead is spot on IMO. The Tiki Witch Doctor theme is ok, but somewhat forgettable, though the mid-table spinners are fun. Overall I feel like I don't know what to do while playing this table. Rating: C-

V12 - Dislike - I'll just say it. This is the Zen table I dislike the most by far. The table is extremely fast and I feel like the table is short which limits time to react to bad situations. Additionally, it makes the whole upper section of the table very difficult to play since the ball moves in and out of that area very quickly. Outlane drains are VERY common, and missed shots have a tendency to drain down the middle. Shooting the ramps requires hitting them almost perfectly and with good speed. It is also EXTREMELY low scoring, perhaps the lowest scoring table of all Zen's tables. All in all the table is very unforgiving. The car customizing theme is good, but the execution feels cheap. Rating: F

WARNING: Since May 12, 2015 you can't play this anymore without accepting a disgusting EULA which essentially changes this into spyware. They even did it after the fact to anyone who bought it when there was no EULA at all (which is illegal at least in Europe). They promised a solution, but never gave one, even after four months have passed now.

Hate to say it, but this may be one of the least justifiable packs, with the exception of El Dorado. Read on.

Shaman is ok. You can get into it. It seems like half the table (top) is dead space most of the time, reserved for a minigame that rarely pops and isn't that exciting. Most of the action is in the orbits/ramps and up front with an odd "spinning floor" dynamic that sends the ball flying in any direction. The volcano is plinko-like and can be annoying to activate "that last one."

El Dorado is excellent, and one of my favorites. Trick shots, random drops, fairly easily activated kickbacks / ball saves etc provide a nicely scaled challenge. Really, everything is great in this table, and may make the pack worth buying on its own.

Tesla is a very low scoring table that nevertheless has some cool elements and challenges. Most notably is the magna-save which is easy to activate (prevents middle hole ballouts). It's not much to look at, the monochrome tone is pretty bleh. And while most tables have the irritating "flash effect" at the bumpers near the flippers, it is particularly harsh on this table. The table is fun but it's not the most memorable experience.

V12! What a great idea for a table - that falls flat on it's face. Regarded by many as the worst table, and I would probably agree. Definitely one of the lowest scoring. But that isn't what ruins it, (I wrote a bunch of stuff here but it's too long. It's just a bad table).

One of the lowest score acheiving packs, probably.

In my humble opinion, this DLC contains 2 hardest tables to get a massive score and it is the V12 and Tesla tables. These 2 tables in itself will make you tear out your hair in frustration. If you are looking for the ultimate challenge in Pinball, this Classic Pack will give it to you in an uncompromising manner.

You have been warned.

Honestly? I don't really like these. Don't begin your Pinball FX2 adventure with Zen Classics! Go try some Star Wars or Mars instead.

Eldorado is moreless enjoyable, it's OK. But Tesla, V12 and Shaman are just too fast, you lose the ball too much and it's somewhat annoying.
