Gottlieb Pinball Classics (Wii) - Flipping good or Dead in t ...
4 June 2009
Summary: Console: Nintendo Wii Price:£18 (Play.com) type of game: Pinball Released: 2006 Developed by: Farsight Studios ~Overview~ This is a great game if you love pinball and would recommend you buy this for the Nintendo Wii. The game itself is very realistic in terms of sound effects and the sights and sounds of a pinball machine but the actual machine physics are not so great.
Conclusion: Pinball fans are a dying breed, but if you do like your arcade action 'old skool' then this is a really good pinball sim. The motion sensing is used to nudge the table, but other than that it doesn't really take full advantage of the Wii controller. Plenty of tables to play and lots of game modes to choose from. If I had to nit pick I'd say the ball is a little too light and some of the more unique tables are hard to get used to.
Conclusion: gottlieb pinball is ok for a pinball sim, but it could be a lot better. if you are a 40 something who used to play pinball in your local pub or arcade this may bring back few memories. There are 9 tables to play on, but i only play 3 cos i found the others too frustrating or uninteresting to play.
Summary: Billed as the most accurate pinball simulator of all time this PS2 port was one of the launch titles for the Wii. The RRP of the game is a quite staggering £40 which to put it in context is £10 more than the magnificent Resident Evil 4 and the same price as Zelda Twilight Princess. Much as I love pinball there was no way I was going to shell out that kind of cash for it.
Excerpt: Clásico juego de Pinball, no aporta nada al género salvo el innovador control de la WII, si eres un nostálgico de estas míticas máquinas no lo dudes, pasarás momentos muy entretenidos, aunque no puede igualar la sensación de golpear la máquina, pero si no dispones de espacio ni dinero para la original no es una mala opción, aunque tras unas cuantas partidas, a pesar de la variedad de máquinas que te ofrece, resulta un tanto monótono, al fin y al cabo es un juego que la...
Pros: Te ahorras el coste y espacio del original .
