I want you to look at the above table. Look at how complex, intricate and detailed it is. Its really, really fun and I love it and recommending picking it up…

Have you figured it out yet? That is not a table from Wild & Adventure Pinball, it’s Paranormal from Pinball FX3. I put it first to show you what a virtual pinball table should be like. Now here’s a table from Wild & Adventure Pinball:

Look at how drab and simplistic it. Sure there are some nice visual effects, and a second table, but its honestly not all that interesting to me. I play more Paranormal than Pirate Pinball(the table above).

Wild & Adventure Pinball is the combination of Wild Pinball and Adventure Pinball, which are bundles of three different tables, each for sale alone. There’s also Horror Pinball and Sports Pinball too.

The publisher claims, “Enjoy 3 games in one with the perfect reproduction of real pinball machines, with all kinds of graphic details and sound.” They’re lying of course, these are not real pinball tables, I did some google searching. And even if they were, what’s available in Pinball Arcade kick these tables in the teeth.

My point is this, why settle for boring pinball when you can have better pinball in other games? These tables are not terrible, I guess, but Zen Studios have been recycling the same tables for years, precisely because they’re so well made.

Overall: There are much better virtual pinball tables out than these boring tables, and they are not all that much more expensive either.

Verdict: Not Recommended
