Ultimate Pinball

Ding Ding Ding! 

Its not much of a stretch to guess what a pinball game is about so I am not going to waste a lot of time here. Its pinball for crying out loud. Some of you young whipper snappers might not remember these machines but I remember when my dad and I would get fish and chips when I was a kid and wed play the pinball machine whilst we waited for the food to cook. 

I love pinball machines and its nice to have some good pinball games coming over on the XBox at a budget price. There are 3 tables on this edition and the physics of the game are good enough that you can sort of pretend you are standing in front of the proper machine. 

There are a swag of mini games built into the core table games on this title and they all provide an interesting diversion from the main gameplay action. The title also provides for up to 4 people to muck around at the same time. 

The tables themselves have great levels of detail and provide a pretty realistic pinny experience. Add to that the fact that this is a budget title that in my opinion should be a must own title for all pinball enthusiasts! 

The themes for the tables are: 

BIG RACE USA A crazed road trip across America, featuring 16 major cities as play zones. With innovative opponents - Monster Truck, Hot Rod, Sports Car, Mini, Beetle and Police Car.

TIMESHOCKA multi layered adventure through six different time zones from Prehistoric through to the future!

FANTASTIC JOURNEYTravel back to eccentric Victorian times, with five steam powered adventures, use your flippers to tunnel to the centre of the Earth, journey to the depths of the seas, fly through the tallest mountains and speed to a mysterious island to stop the evil General Yagov!

Features3 Different tables to choose, from each with a unique theme. Fantastically detailed 3D tables Realistic ball physics allowing smooth frantic multi-ball mode Video displays, with interactive mini games Several different viewing angles for all tables Customisable table slope, flipper power, and dozens of other settings Up to 4 players can compete for the highest score 

GO GET SOME!
