Pro Pinball Fantastic Journey
Playstation: Out Now
hardly need description. Pro Pinball Fantastic Journey is a pinball simulation
and a good one at that. In the manual it says that the aim of the game is to
stop the evil General Yagov from destroying the moon. However, the story is
only an afterthought as instead of making a pinball game that deviated into
something that resembled a computer game, Empire have remained true to the game
of pinball and created an accurate simulation.
The graphics are good and it really does look like a real pinball machine. The control is handled well by the gamepad and if you have an analogue pad then you can use the sticks to simulate nudges. The only thing to say against it is that it won't appeal to the general gamer who isn't obsessed with pinball.
Deaf gamers need not worry about this game. They are no more disadvantaged with this game than they are playing pinball for real. In a nutshell then Pro Pinball Fantastic Journey is a wonderful pinball simulator for the Playstation but it falls short as a title for the more general gamer.
Overall Game Rating: 7.8/10 From a pinball fans point of view it's highly recommended.
Quality of text: 6 There are only a few items of text needed and they occasionally overlap your view of the table.
Graphics: 9 A great representation of a pinball table. You'll think its a real one.
Interface: 8 Makes good use of the analogue pad and allows easy play with its simple controls.
Gameplay: 8 From a pinball fans point of view there is not much wrong. Others, however, might argue that as a Playstation game its a bit flat.
