Star Wars Pinball: Balance of the Force; go buy!

Article by Matt S.

I'm not going to review the lastest trio of Star Wars-themed DLC tables that Zen Studios have updated its brilliant Zen Pinball 2 release with. We've done plenty of reviews of Zen Pinball releases over the years, and there's not much new to say.

But, once again, these tables are all brilliant - and in fact I reckon the Tie Fighter table will become one of my all-time favourite pinball tables. The Darth Vader one is pretty awesome too.

As with the previous Star Wars tables this DLC is absolutely filled with classic lines and sounds from the original films, lending the whole experience a real sense of authenticity. As with the previous tables, each of the new pack have been expertly designed to reflect the subject material.

There's a couple of gamey elements that have worked into some of these tables - such as a rather neat Galaga twist on the Tie Fighter table. It does mean that these are perhaps the least realistic pinball tables there is in the entire Zen Pinball 2 package, but the trade-off is worth it.

Zen Pinball 2 just keeps getting better and better. Downloading all the tables is an expensive exercise, but considering how much raw value is packed into each table, I prefer to see it as an investment than an expense.
