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: I'm a pinball fan, owned 10 different machines at one time, and some of them are on here. I have played most of the games on here for real, and find most of the simulations on the mark. However, I really wish there was a speed setting. By that I mean the angle of the play field (usually the whole machine -- adjusted at the feet). Medieval Madness in particular is just too darn slow. I can barely enjoy it for this reason.
Summary: This game's been reviewed to death, and most of the glowing reviews are spot-on. I adore pinball, and didn't expect that I'd like virtual simulations much at all. Not so; I bought this first for Wii, and again for PS3 to get the additional newer tables (MM, NGG, AN). I seem to recall taking a little time getting used to the physics, but after that it was all smooth sailing, it became instinct.
Summary: If you don't know what classics this game has to offer, go search on YouTube for pins like Medieval Madness, Funhouse, Tales Of Arabian Nights and Whirlwind. This game should sit on the shelf of every PS3 gamer 20y+. Unfortunately, it doesn't and my guess is that this will be one of the most underrated games on the platform ever. Understandably, there is a lot of nostalgia packed on the disc but you can also have tons of fun with games you've never tried in real life.
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...
