Pros: The design of the tables is fantastic and the audio and visuals are top-notch., Tons of variety with over 20 tables to choose from and more in the planning., Good social features including tournaments, leaderboards and social media integration.
Cons: No option to buy all 20 tables at one cut-price deal, so buying them all individually will be pricey., With so much going on on-screen, bright visuals and gameplay so fast it's sometimes hard to focus on everything that's happening around the table.
Conclusion: The Balance of the Force table pack is the best set of tables Zen has released to date. All three tables are well made and the 3D effect is outstanding if you are equipped to take advantage of it.
Summary: Zen Studios have been an unrivalled force for most of this console generation, starting with Pinball FX on Xbox 360, they’ve gone on to conquer PS3, 3DS, iOS and Android. Now they’re adding Sony’s Vita to that list as they release Zen Pinball 2 for PS3.
Conclusion: It's tough to grade Zen Pinball 2 . It's nice that they've brought all the tables under one roof, and the price can't be beat. Yet they've offered nothing new and it would have been nice to see a more robust tournament system in there.

Summary: Pinball may have been around since the 1700s, but the arcade game that we’ve all come to know and love didn’t surface until the 70s and early 80s. Smoke and sweat filled arcades would be lit up by the endless pinging and lit up screens of Pinball machines, complimented by the sound of coins dropping...
Excerpt: I have fond memories as a child of going to local arcades and national chain pizza restaurants whose only reason for having pizza – the quality of which was debatable at best and nonexistent at worst – was to get kids inside to pump quarters into the myriad of arcade games on display.
Pros: The game itself is free…, A truly authentic pinball experience, Tables are complex and multi-layered, 26 tables to choose from, and more on the way, Cross Play enabled; play pinball on the go!
Cons: …but each table costs at least $2.49, User interface is spartan at best
Conclusion: Zen Pinball 2 is niet echt een game te noemen, omdat het vooral een efficiënt stukje software is dat alle bekende elementen van Zen Pinball en Marvel Pinball tot één handige hub samenbrengt.
Pros: Veel tafels, Cross-platform, Gratis, Ideale speelhub
