Has anyone on here tried the Pinball FX game on the XBLA? I downloaded it tonight after hearing about the Street Fighter Tribute table that was released yesterday and I think this is a really fun game. If you like pinball games, you should definitely give it a try.

If anyone has it and would like to play some multiplayer, please add me to your friends list.

Also, here are some screen shots of the tables that come with the game and the DLC tables.

Included with game:

Yeah I've had this game since it came out. It's fun, although the only table I have that supports local multiplayer is SF2.

That SF2 table is really hard to get anywhere on.

Yeah it's hard to get a good score on the SF2 table, but it's the one I've played the most so far. Have you tried the Nightmare Mansion or the Rocky and Bullwinkle tables yet? I think I may download those tomorrow.

I will have to get the sf2 table now. I have had this for some time and would mostly play on the pirate table.

I've had this for quite a while too and have gotten all the DLC tables so far, so I'll get the SFII one too.

I suck pretty terribly, but I love pinball.

Any comments on the Nightmare Mansion table? Been meaning to pick this up for a while, but I'm looking for specifics on that table. Is it worth 200 points?

I've always been interested in this game but never downloaded it and I do love street fighter.

Do any of you have the Williams Pinball game? How do the physics compare between the two? I think the Williams game has the best ball physics of any game I have ever played.

You're already on my friends list. ;) Send me an invite sometime.

I think 200 points for a new table is a pretty good deal, unless it's utter crap or something. It's a decent table, but not amazing. The theme is more along the lines of Zombies Ate My Neighbors or Scooby Doo than something meant to be truly frightening. The table is fairly small, but sports a mini-playfield underneath the table (like Black Hole). Other than that, it really doesn't have any features too different than the other tables. It plays well enough though.

I'd suggest downloading the trial version. It only gives you one table, but it's plenty to give you a good sense of the physics. Personally I like both the physics and the feel of the flippers, but I'm not an expert. Some people really don't like it.

Haha yeah, I was hoping some of you on my list would want to play this. I'll send you an invite sometime, or you can send me one.

Do you know how the Rocky and Bullwinkle table is?

No, I got the pirate table though, and it's probably the best one I've seen so far. I'd like someone that has all the tables to review them. Rocky and bullwinkle looks stupid, but I'd get it if someone says it's fun.

I'm good at real-life pinball, but stink at this'n, for some mysterious reason.

It's still a cool game, though.

I've had it since almost release I think. I love the game and have put many hours into it. I have a high score of 1 billion+ for speed table but still haven't been able to grab the achievement for finishing the wizard mode for that table, gah. I'll play anyone, love this game.

I just got this today purely cause I wanted to play the Street Fighter table. Not too shabby. Seems good to waste some time on.

This table kinda sucks. I still think the Buccaneer table is the best. Spend your MSP on that if you must get this game and want at least one good table.

I've had this game for a while now. I like it a lot, and would recommend it to anyone on the fence about it. Great game for when you've only got 15 minutes or so to kill.

I've never played multiplayer on it yet, but if anyone wants to add me, that's cool. I'm most frequently on in the mornings during the week, like 9:00-11:00 am EST.

Ah the Buccaneer table is free so you wouldn't have to decide that table or this one. You probably have to decide this table, rocky and nightmare table. It depends on your taste really, are you big into halloween themes, a rocky bullwinkle fan or a street fighter fan. I think the new SFII table is pretty cool (however I'm a fan), you can also choose 1-4 players for this table too. That's one thing that was lacking in this great pinball game was the local multiplayer. Online multiplayer is fun but sometimes I can't find matches.

A few impressions from GameFaqs on the other DLC tables.

Nightmare Mansion:

It is a very cool table, there is a second floor, however it is underneath the table, it is amazingly fun.


Awesom table ... it's so fun and colorful. :)


I absolutely agree...a GREAT board for a GREAT game.


It's not that fun when you are going for a big score. I spent about 9 hours in it yesterday. I could have beaten the #1 score, but gave up halfway. It was getting well tedious. It takes way to long to rack up a decent score.



Rocky and Bullwinkle:

I bought it this morning and played about 20 minutes...

I like the table, dislike the music and the bird chirping when cycling through the bonuses. Wish they had more voice sound effects.

The table "floor" graphics are fantastic and my first impression is that I'm going to like the play of this table a lot. Easier to score points on than Nightmare Mansion.

200 points = great value, highly recommended!

I've played it a bit more now and yeah... it's definitely a quality table!

Thanks Zen! As long as you keep releasing quality tables at a reasonable price, I'll keep buying them!


200 points
it's good

Finally broke down and bought this.

The buccaneer table is very well done for free. I had a blast with that one.
I didn't play much Agents.
The "extreme" table is great for the lolz.
The speed table is not all that bad.

I did buy the Nightmare Mansion table. It felt more like a weak haunted forest. The under table second floor is good and the sound effects are amusing. I guess I had higher expectations for it to actually be set in a mansion instead of a forest...

Anymore thoughts on the SFII table or R&BW table? How is the music for those?

If anyone wants to play multi, just add me.

SF II table is fun IMO. It has Ken's stage song as the BG music along with sounds from the game. The Rocky and Bullwinkle table is fun as well. It is very colorful and has sounds from the characters in the show.

I didn't play the Rocky and Bullwinkle one very much but it looks like a good one as well. I think all of the DLC tables are well worth 200 points a piece.

I bought the Rocky & Bullwinkle table when it came out, and I can't remember what it's like.

I remember being disappointed that it wasn't thee Rocky & Bullwinkle pinball table I've played at arcades.

I dled the Street Fighter table last night and it's pretty awesome. I have all the DLC tables and like them all, you really can't go wrong at $2.50 apiece.

Forgot the bonus level? Also, I am having a lot of fun with this. Glad I picked it up.
