Summary: I bought this game to add variety to my growing xbox collection(mostly sports games)and I'm glad I did. Here is my basic take on Pure Pinball. Good graphics(nearly photo realistic)good sound(lots of bells and whistles)and amazing true to life pinball physics. Fun Factor? Very fun. Runaway Train puts me in a really good mood, especially around 4:20. To buy 4 real pinball tables would cost between $10,000 and $20,000. For under $20 this game is a steal.
Summary: The game is good, and the price of under $20 makes it worth it. But for any true pinball enthusiast, the reason I give this game the three stars is the fact that each game gives you five balls, not the traditional three. And you can not change the settings to fix this problem. The graphics are good, and the physics are true to life. The five ball rule is really the only things that takes away from this great game. I would not pay more than the $20 asking price.
Summary: I bought this game because pinball is one of the only games I can handle to play for any length of time. The game is great but it is not a multiple player game, and it takes a long time for this game to load when switching tables or players
Summary: This game is one of the better pinball games. It has a variety of tables and the graphics are some of the best on the X-box. They have to be seen to be believed. I highly recommend anyone with a love of pinball check out this game.
Summary: The average person ( if not pinball purists and fanatics ) will enjoy this title just fine. The graphics are detailed, colorful, and nicely rendered. The physics work well and the sound effects are pretty good. You will have to finagle the angle and the view a bit to get a good look at the table. Overall, the price is right ( wasn't Pacman for the 2600 about $10 more when first released ? ) and will take up good amount of your time. p.s.
Summary: I love pinball-- the real thing, but this game doesn't come close to simulating the fun of playing on a real machine. I have Pinball for SNES, which is actually better. The camera angle on Pure Pinball for Xbox makes it harder to follow the details of what's happening, even when you disable the top glass and its reflection.
