Minor quirks aside, Pro Pinball: Fantastic Journey closely matches a real pinball machine. With smooth gameplay and accurate physics, Fantastic Journey could turn you into a pin fanatic.
I was mesmerized by the soundtrack of the game. I cranked it up all the time I was playing--much to the annoyance of my wife. Physics are good, game play is good, and the rules have good depth to them. I really enjoyed playing this game.
Inside Mac Games (IMG)
When all is said and done, FJ is a pinball game -- only those who appreciate this type of gaming are going to be thrilled. Unfortunately there is no demo; I suggest you grab the demo of Big Race USA (listed on MacGameFiles) for an example of just how fast, gorgeous and realistic the Pro Pinball series can be. Overall I am thrilled to have yet another Pro Pinball title on the Mac, and many thanks to GraphSim for giving us a chance to enjoy it. While FJ will not blow Pro Pinball veterans away by any means, it could be a bridge for pinball “newbies” to enter the genre. Personally I think GraphSim should grab the rights to the other three titles and republish those as well, as they are getting difficult to find.
