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.
Zen Studios have delivered us pinball tables based on Star Wars, Jurassic World and many more franchises over the years. But in recent times it's been all about the classics, providing players with the opportunity to take in some of the most authentic Williams and Bally tables. And that is where Pinball FX3 - Williams Pinball: Volume 6 comes in, dropping another three iconic options to pinball players around the globe.
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 are many pinball experiences available throughout the gaming world, but the very best have come from the fair hands of Zen Studios, with Pinball FX3 providing the ultimate ball-pinging tests. And today that test increases once more with yet another new bundle of old school pinball delights arriving in the Williams Pinball: Volume 5 content drop.
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?
The kings of pinball are most certainly Zen Studios, and after providing a pretty stunning base experience with Pinball FX3, have further pushed the boundaries with multiple DLC packs since. A good few of those have come featuring some classic Williams Pinball tables, and that number is soon due to expand, by two, with the arrival of the Williams Pinball: Universal Monsters Pack.
If you want a decent pinball experience, then Zen Studios and Pinball FX3 is what you should be after. Delivering a ton of great tables to gamers across the globe, recent times have seen collections of authentic Williams tables arrive for gameplay opportunities. And that is where we are today, with the release of Pinball FX3 Williams Pinball Vol. 4.
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?
Zen Studios really upped the ante when they pushed Pinball FX3 out to the world in 2017, revamping the pinball scene like never before. Since that time there have been a whole host of brilliant table additions added in too, with the Williams Pinball Volume 3 pack the latest to arrive.
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.
