Fun but WIlliams Classics is better
16 November 2013
Summary: This is a fun and entertaining pinball simulation. However some of the tables are difficult to play because the background doesn't help and ball movement is not as fluid as in the later Williams Pinball Classics. If you buy one choose the later, you'll be happier.
Summary: Bought this as a gift for my other half as he is Pinball Mad! He has been playing it for a while now and in his opinion it is not as good as Williams Pinball Classics, which he prefers... Saying that he plays this a hell of a lot !
Summary: The pinball tables are based on real arcade tables. They are very realistic and when you are in the arcade playing a table you can hear the sound effects from the other tables in the arcade - so true to life. There is a variety of tables with varying degree of skill needed and more than one player can play a table as in the real thing. Its a good game for younger players - no-one gets shot, or blown up so I let the kids play this one.
Great time wasting game but a bit tedious after a while

Summary: This game is great for wasting time when you're bored. There are a variety of tables with different features & some are much harder than others. I like the fact that both hands are used as they would be on a real pinball table, it is a nice touch. However, the game does become a little tedious after a while.

Excerpt: "...sale section I came across Gottlieb Pinball Classics. I used to love pinball when I was younger so was over the moon to find it and a a snip of £12.99.

With fantastic reproduced sound effects from some classic tables, instantly you are transported to an arcade in seconds. There are 10 tables in total (although some have to be unlocked) and you have the option ...
Gottlieb Pinball Classics (Wii): A pinball game that feels like you are in the Arcade

Summary: Whilst in Game rifling though the sale section I came across Gottlieb Pinball Classics. I used to love pinball when I was younger so was over the moon to find it and a a snip of £12.99. The Game: Gottlieb went all out on the graphics for this game, they are amazing!! With fantastic reproduced sound effects from some classic tables, instantly you are transported to an arcade in seconds.
Summary: Retro revival. All those days spent in smoky 'yoof' cafes and seaside amusement arcades. Reliving a mis-spent youth through pinball. Good graphics and game play and there are some real challenges with some of the tables. Good game for anyone of a certain age!
Summary: As a previous owner of the Gamecube version of this game, I can say that gameplay was thoroughly enjoyable and ultra-realistic. The Black Hole level was definitely my favorite, especially the "table inside the table". My fiance is not a gamer, but she loved playing it so much that I got her a special Micro-Con controller that fit her small hands.
Summary: I took a bit of a punt on this title not really knowing much about it and was pleasantly surprised! The main play mode, titled Gottlieb Challenge, sees you having to beat a set score before being allowed to progress to the next table. There does not appear to be any increase in the level of difficulty as I found myself breezing past some tables but getting stuck on others.
