Pinball is a good relief after several hours of Action/Adventure.

Summary: Always checking for PS3 games since I'm not ready to make the jump to PS4. I've really enjoyed actual pinball games since I was a kid. I wish I would have gotten this PS3 game when it first came out. Unopened versions are over $100 and I was overjoyed at finding this "near mint" at only $24.
Summary: got a lot of hours out of this, then I learned that you can buy these games and more from playstation store. I think the standalone media game provides better image quality but would like to see more games added. still, great nostalgic fun!!! add an 80's soundtrack to the background and its a time machine.
Summary: I really can't add more than what Matthew T. Weflen said in his review. I did not play much video or pinball games as a kid, preferring to play outdoors instead. Thus I did not have much to compare this to. A friend had this on his PS3 and I got a chance to play it and fell in love. So, I picked up my own copy for my PS3 and get in a game or 3.
Summary: I like the game but it needs more content. I played some online demos & really enjoyed them so I picked up this game(not a easy find other then Ebay). They use this stupid credit system. But once you play through all the tables, if your half way decent the credits end up being useless yet I keep earning them. I'm up to 800 or so. The arcade looks like it has more tables but you cant play them.
Summary: The friend I got this for told me he got beat by his brother on the newer pinpall machines in this game, and was used to the old school ones, but sounds like just an excuse to me! He really liked it overall.
If you like Pinball... this is a must have for PS3

Summary: I'm really impressed with this collection and how it applies to the console... 13 different recognizable tables... physics and looks simulate the real thing quite impressively... this game assures HOURS of fun, and one of the rare games you'll have in your collection that literally anyone could enjoy. I personally remember years ago how I sank hundreds of quarters once in 'Whirlwind', to have it again now, in the comfort of my own home, and no quarters...
Summary: As a kid in the 80's I dumped a lot of quarters into the pinball machines at the local corner store. In 90's I dumped a lot of quarters into the pinball machines on campus and at the pub. The last time I tried "computer" pinball was something on windows95 and I wasn't really impressed. When ZEN pinball came out on the PSN, I picked it up and was impressed with the quality, but the tables were fictitious.
Summary: I was there when most of these games were brand new and have played them all for real and I can say without hesitation that these are very good represntations of the originals. There are a few glitches that arise occaisionally, such as, I've seen the ball leave the playfield and roll off the screen (oops), but overall the gameplay is very good. The ball physics are also slightly off ( the ball is always moving even when it should be standing still ).
Summary: I had fun with the PSN offering of Zen Pinball but was looking for something with more tables. This game provided that. Excellent graphics, sounds, and physics. Lots of fun and replay value if you like pinball. Playing older classic tables, for me, was a blast. Overall the challenges are a tad easy, but you really only care about getting that high score and beating it again anyway.
