Pinball FX3 usually does a stellar job of recreating physical tables in their world and the Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventures table is no exception; faithfully done with the majority of additions subtly improving it. But the price point is a major sticking point, as is the number of tables included.
If you’ve been picking up these additional table packs for Pinball FX3 as and when they release this is a solid addition to the collection. If, however, you are a pinball dabbler, there may be one or two better licensed packs more up your street than this one.
Following on from the Williams and Bally licence acquisition for Zen Studios from FarSight Studios, steadily released content packs have been arriving in Pinball FX3 based on real world tables. This latest addition - that of Williams Pinball: Volume 5 on Xbox One - features three classics: Tales of the Arabian Nights, Cirqus Voltaire and No Good Gofers.
There’s no doubt that the different Williams Pinball Volumes released so far have been pretty damn decent, but can the latest monstrous pack - Williams Pinball: Universal Monsters - raise the stakes and be one to howl about from the rooftops?
Ever since Zen Studios acquired the necessary licenses to recreate real-world pinball tables for Pinball FX3, we’ve seen a varied selection of iconic machines from the Williams Bally library given a new lease of life in the digital world. Having already released Volume 1 and Volume 2 to a fairly positive reception, it was inevitable that there would be another trio of tables in the pipeline and now Williams Pinball: Volume 3 has arrived. Will this third bunch be able to satisfy the needs and wants of the modern gamer, or should only pinball wizards line up for some one on one time with this pack?
Not too long ago, Pinball FX3 had an influx of new tables as part of the Williams Pinball: Volume 1 pack. Essentially these are iconic machines brought to Pinball FX3 from the Williams Bally library, remastered to add a few modern touches whilst retaining their classic style at the press of a button. Now there’s another trio of vintage experiences arriving in the form of Williams Pinball: Volume 2 and I’ve taken up the task of figuring out if these are best suited to hardcore pinball players again, or whether these have enough excitement to draw in the casual gamers too.
Han Solo has been a regular character in the Star Wars films over the years, with Harrison Ford playing the part of the quick-witted smuggler to perfection in four major movie instalments. Recently though, the origins of the character were delved into for Solo: A Star Wars Story – with Alden Ehrenreich taking over the titular role - and Zen Studios decided to design a set of tables inspired by the blockbuster. There are already lots of tables from this franchise available to purchase in Pinball FX3, but can the Star Wars Pinball: Solo Pack deliver a pinball experience worthy of shedding out even more cash for?
It may be a fair few months since Star Wars: The Last Jedi hit the cinemas, but in that time Zen Studios have been busy getting their latest pack of pinball tables ready to launch. Inspired by the blockbuster film – which became the highest-grossing film of 2017 – the Star Wars Pinball: The Last Jedi pack for Pinball FX3 brings with it two brand new tables to unleash your inner pinball wizard upon. There are already plenty of great Star Wars tables available to enjoy, so can these two do enough to stand out from the ever-growing crowd?
It’s been 25 years since Jurassic Park first stormed onto the big screen, causing excitement and intense moments galore with the presence of dinosaurs. The franchise has grown significantly since then, seeing three successful follow-up films and another one set to release this year, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Zen Studios know when to whip out a table pack and given their recent collaboration with film studio Universal, it was inevitable we’d see a dinosaur laden set of tables. The Jurassic World Pinball Pack for Pinball FX3 is the product of their latest development efforts, but can it capture the magic of the films?
