Summary: You get the ability to play all available tables free of charge for a few minutes before being prompted to purchase. In essence, the game is considered “Free To Play”, but in reality, it becomes one big demo. While some of the machines offer great fun, others were substantially more mundane. This causes FX2 to be a pretty hit and miss affair.
Conclusion: Pinball FX2 is just good fun if you fancy a quick game of pinball. The ball physics are great, the visuals are top notch and, barring some dodgy voice acting here and there, the audio adds to the experience too. Having friends play along with you increases the enjoyment as you work to beat each other’s scores, but solo play can be just as rewarding.
Pros: Good clean fun. Great visuals and rewarding gameplay.
Cons: Can't currently purchase individual tables. Voice acting is questionable in places.
Excerpt: It’s a good thing Pinball FX 2 is so good, because I have a few complaints about its recent arrival to the PC. Imagine that. Someone complaining about the PC port of a fantastic console game. The things that bother me about Zen Pinball FX2, newly available for the PC and conveniently integrated into my Steam friends list, bother me because I’m such a dyed-in-the-wool Zen pinball fan. You might not notice some of these things. You might not care about some of them.
Excerpt: Epic Games has had a long history with the Unreal franchise. Starting back in the day with the single-player game, Unreal pushed boundaries for shooters with creative weaponry and interesting enemies. The success of the first Unreal game lead to the creation of one of the strongest FPS franchises known today.
Excerpt: ok unreal tournament 3 is a FPS froom EPIC GAMES the creator of the popular xbox 360/PC game Gears of war. I havent played any of the UT games before as i had lack of internret when they were out(2 busy playin rugby and drinking)
Conclusion: Despite my praise, Zombie BBQ isn’t perfect. There is a distinct lack of checkpoints where you can save your game. This adds to the difficulty, often to the point of causing frustration. In addition to this, the frame-rate frequently drops when there are large numbers of zombies on the screen. These complaints aside, Zombie BBQ is a fantastic portable game. Little Red Riding Hood’s Zombie BBQ may be a rather simplistic shooter, but the game offers plenty of depth.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Little has changed since the Stone-Ages where the early man would bash his neighbor’s skull for looking at his woman or to show his superiority in the territory. In this modern era of digital massacre, the mode of aggression is different but the intent remains unchanged – for ultimate bragging rights! Unreal Tournament 3 (UT3) is that arena of showcase that pushes die-hard fragging to its best and brings skills and maneuver to the altar.
Excerpt: Here’s the thing about Pinball FX 2 . It is a pinball game, in case you haven’t gathered that from the title, and it strives to be nothing more. This is not a bad thing. To pursue an idea in video gaming and to wholly deliver on that promise is admirable, but I tell you this so you don’t go into Pinball FX2 expecting anything more. In fact, the game’s determination to be nothing more than a pinball game is one of it’s strengths.
