Wonderful little science fiction themed pinball game.

Anja Rebekka Schultze, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a well made game. It uses it's theme well, adding Metroid elements to a pinball game flawlessy. The game is fun and playable, it is very easy to pick up and play but it is very hard to master, just like any good pinball game should be. The theme for this game is also very clever and it fits the setting, it is not just a silly gimmick.

  • Summary: Fun game. The free rumble pack is cool but ultimately merely a battery waster.

  • Summary: I loved this game from the start, but I was never able to get past the first two tables. It might be just a touch on the hard side.

Samus and pinball, and it works

N. Durham "Big Evil", Amazon

  • Summary: Before she blasted her way on the DS with Metroid Prime: Hunters, Nintendo released this pinball game to help tide anxious fans over. Yes, it's Samus and pinball, combining for a wonderfully fun marriage on the DS with Metroid Prime Pinball. Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past decade and a half knows that one of Samus' powers involves her ability to morph into a ball. Well, guess what the ball is in this game.

Pretty cool

  • Summary: I like this game. I agree that the split screen can be a burden when a lot of other stuff is going on, but I think it's a cool concept. As of this writing I have only made it to the artifact area once and it was annoying to not be able to save where i was.. But it's a pinball game and I am looking forward to finding out what else is there once I get better at it.

Metroid Pinball Review

Crystal Vision, Amazon
8 February 2007
  • Summary: Great fun. I would be helpful to know how to do the wall jump thing. Any suggestions? I'm sure there are more areas I haven't unlocked yet, but I'll keep working on it. I just wish I could save the game, it takes awhile to get the first four tables and by the time I get to the artifact table, I usually have to stop.

Great game... once you get used to it...

Brian Mohler, Amazon
11 August 2006
  • Summary: I bought this game a couple of months after it had been in the stores and I'm glad I waited. I had just gotten over the loss of my Pinball of the Dead game when I saw this in Sears for $17. I thought "hey! it's a pinball game for the DS! And it comes with a Rumble Pack!" and I'm glad that I bought it. This game, just like any other pinball video game needs time to get used to the gameplay.

Two great themes that may not be that great together

DeRosset Myers "DeRo", Amazon
5 March 2006
  • Summary: Have you ever wondered if Samus' morph-ball form would give developers some crazy idea? I think this should answer your question unless what you wanted to know was ... never mind. It's not appropriate for this website. Sure, I like pinball, and yes, I like at Super Metroid and Metroid ZERO Misson. I also like red salsa and ice cream, but I wouldn't pour salsa over my ice cream. Do you see what I'm getting at? Granted, this game is fun.

Metroid Between The Bumpers

Michael Kerner "Michael Kerner", Amazon
10 December 2005
  • Summary: There happens to be so much going on with the handheld world these days. Nevertheless, the guilty pleasures from the arcades always find a unique way of creeping into some great games, especially from pinball. That has been the case with Nintendo during the past year. For Nintendo's Game Boy Advance, they really hit it big with the success of Mario Pinball Land. It just really brought to life the adventure pinball franchises again.
