Summary: Flipper Critters was not the best idea for a game. It was amusing when I first played it, but then after 2 mins it got boring. I could not get past world 2 and ent up taking it back to the store. UNLESS YOU LIKE WASTING MONEY, DON'T BUY IT.
Summary: From the picture and other reviews I mistakenly thought this would be good for a young child. The story line may be engaging but it is a bit more complicated than it appears and actual pinball playing is very limited. Unless an adult wants to go through it step by step each time and assist a child i don't think it is good for kids too young and older kids may find it too juvenile. I should have done my homework on this one.
Summary: If you're a very young child (or an easy-to-please person in your 40's), you might get some enjoyment out of this, but if you have any kind of desire for a descent pinball sim on the go then this is the wrong game. If that's what you're looking for, then you need Metroid Prime Pinball instead. Flipper Critters initially impressed me with a vibrant, colorful art style backed up by a silky-smooth 3D graphics engine.
