Zen Pinball 2: Women of Power Pack Review

All in all, though, the Women of Power pack are just fun, fast tables. They allow Zen to stretch a bit by setting up a small story arc, and provide something just a little different for the player then they are used to. Absolutely a worthy pick up if you are at all invested in the Zen Pinball platform.

Zen Pinball 2: Bethesda Pack Review

Individually, the three tables on offer in the Bethesda Pinball Pack are all entertaining, with DOOM easily topping the pack with sheer attitude and atmosphere. Together as a pack, these tables represent the strongest outing of pinball that Zen has had since the Ball of Glory pack earlier this year, with this one coming in higher overall because there’s no American Dad table holding it back.

Star Wars Pinball: The Force Awakens Pack

As for the tale of the tape, this set of pinball tables is a bit of a wash. The First Order would be worth the price of a table by its lonesome, though when paired with the underwhelming Episode 7 table, it makes it a little less of a bargain. There's fun to be had if you look for it, but if it's a matter of choosing one group of tables over another, its certainly something I would take into account.

Balls of Glory Pinball Pack

Of course, your main source of enjoyment for any of these tables will really come from your love of the properties themselves, as I am sure that someone, somewhere, who is really into American Dad could and probably would come away with a different taste in their mouth than I was left with. As far as I am concerned, though, I came out on top with not only three of the four tables providing a fun reason to jump back into Zen Pinball, but finding what just may be my favorite table of all on offer in Bob's Burgers. That leaves the package, as a whole, as entirely worth it, and another set of great additions to Zen's ever growing library.

Zen Pinball 2: Ant-Man

Obviously pinball is not this great fleshed out gaming adventure that many fans would like to see their favorite comic book characters go through. It does add another experience to be had; however short it may be.

Pinball FX-2: Guardians of the Galaxy

I can’t explain enough how much I would recommend this game to anyone. It is as close to perfect as a pinball game can be. The mechanics are excellent. The sounds and effects are spot on to a real pinball machine. It gives you everything that a pinball game should, minus the noisy arcade atmosphere. Even if you haven't seen the movie or read the comics, this table should still be enough to entertain you.

Pinball Arcade: Season One

Despite the flaws with Pinball Arcade and The Season One Table Pack, nostalgia-minded gamers should be very pleased with what they find in this package. Relative newcomers to pinball should also take a look. The hobby itself might be old, but video games didn't make it obsolete. The 21 tables that you get are a great value for the $30 price tag too. Nothing will ever replicate the actual experience, but this simulation comes about as close as anyone has.
