Flipnic: Ultimate Pinball

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Graphically, pinball games can be pretty limited. However, Capcom's done a pretty good job of keeping things fresh with Flipnic: Ultimate Pinball . There's a nice variety of background imagery and the visuals that are 'in-game' kept my interest as well. The audio of Flipnic is pretty decent, too. There's nothing spectacular here, but the sound effects have most of the bells and whistles associated with pinball, and then some.

  • Excerpt: Sure, putting pinball into a videogame is much like taking a tennis racket to soccer practice, but Capcom has managed to join the two divergent entertainment forms most adroitly.

  • Excerpt: At it's core, Flipnic is simply a pinball simulator... a very good pinball simulator. A PS2 controller may not be the same as a big square table, but the left directional and circle button fill in for the left and right flipper buttons just fine. The L/R triggers also activate a handy tilt move, but don't use it too much or the game will penalize you.

Flipnic: Ultimate Pinball Review

GameSpot
11 July 2005
  • Summary: Once you're past Flipnic's pretty outer layer, you'll probably find that the game is a little too stripped-down for your tastes.
  • Pros: Very cool look to each level, Controls well, Lots of UFOs and crab babies to bust up
  • Cons: Each individual area of the levels is pretty bland, Missions are usually pretty basic

  • Summary: Flipnic ist ein vorzügliches Beispiel dafür, wie viel findige Entwickler aus einem einfachen, alten Spielprinzip machen können. Der ungewöhnliche Aufbau der Tische und das für Flipper untypische missionsbasierte Gameplay gehen weit über das Gewöhnliche hinaus und sorgen für ein hohes Mass an Motivation. Lediglich der etwas misslungene dritte Tisch gibt Anlass zur Kritik.

  • Conclusion: Opbygningen af bordene i Flipnic g�r dog, at forn�jelsen ved spillet forsvinder en smule, n�r missionerne f�rst er blevet gennemf�rt. Det forst�rkes ogs� af, at man ikke kan v�re mere end �n spiller - den slags tidsfordriv er begr�nset til et par s�rskilte minispil, der hurtigt bliver ligegyldige at lege med.
