Auracore MediaWorks
16 November 2009
  • Summary: Calling all Pinball Fanatics! No, seriously. Just the fanatics.
  • Pros: Simple gameplay; anyone can pull two triggers to control the pinball arms; there will be at least one table you'll enjoy.
  • Cons: Visuals when playing the pinball machines leave something to be desired; can be difficult to hit targets; challenge mode can be a little frustrating.

  • Excerpt: Crave has delivered a really great pinball collection to the PSP. Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection features over a dozen classic Gottlieb pinball tables and arcade miscellany, all simulated in loving detail. This is a portable gaming pinball fan's dream come true, and it even allows you to serve out pinball games wirelessly to other PSPs. That means wireless multiplayer for all from a single UMD. If you like the pinball action, check this one out.
  • Pros: ups: Nice recreations of classic pinball machines, cool sharing feature supports multiplayer gaming on a single cartridge, good fodder for pinball fans.
  • Cons: downs: Doesn't do much to attract new fans, screen aspect and controls somewhat at odds.

  • Conclusion: A very solid $20 offering. It's nothing that will sell a PSP, but as a impulse bargain buy, it should keep most very, very happy -- provided they like pinball. REALLY like pinball.

Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection

Portable Review
22 December 2005
  • Excerpt: In 1947, Gottlieb released Humpty Dumpty - the first pinball machine with flippers. This proved to be the turning point of coin-operated gaming. They weren’t the flippers that we know and love in today’s games. Instead, they were tiny flippers placed along the playing field. They were much smaller than the flippers of current machines, but revolutionary nonetheless. Gottlieb actually had a big part in developing pinball games as we now know them.

Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection Review

12 December 2005
  • Excerpt: Despite the fact that a new company has risen to release all-new pinball machines, by and large, the pinball industry collapsed along with arcades a few years back. While you can still find machines in some out-of-the-way locations, it's getting harder and harder to see a fully functional pinball machine in its natural habitat.
  • Pros: A good variety of tables
  • Cons: Graphics get a little muddy in some spots, Credit-based system prevents you from playing the games you want to play when you want to play them
