The best pinball I've played

The Good

As the title says, this is what I consider to be the best pinball on computer. The majority of the tables are fantastic to play, and do not become tired after many plays. The high number of tables is a joy, and is good to see variation between them. Different themes, a few 'vintage' tables, the Enigma table, etc. As well as this, the graphics and music are very high quality.

The Bad

There are a few bugs with the game, if bug is the right word to use. A few of the tables (in particular 'African Safari' and 'Space journey') are difficult to play because the ball is lost far too easily. When I play, the ball is lost regularly after just a few seconds because of bad placement of objects. Also, the bumpers bounce way too hard. This isn't that much of a problem, but can be a bit annoying.

The Bottom Line

Even though a few of the tables are a bit difficult to play, there is still so much here that it is one of my favourite games. Great table design!
