Summary

The first pinball game that is really playable

The Good

Before Pinball Fantasies, the genre was immature without any notable exception. This game raised the standards to the point where it should have been with its realistic ball and table physics. The graphics and sounds are totally astounding. The game runs smoothly in 320x240 with MOD music on a 286/16. And if you have a 386 or better you can enjoy the cool looking 360x350 resolution which was a rarity in those days.

The Bad

Well, this game is one of the very few games that managed to do almost everything right. So, there's virtually nothing to complain about.

The Bottom Line

A must have for all pinball fans out there.
