What is the best visual pinball table?
« on: November 07, 2012, 09:04:57 am »
Hi,

I managed to get it installed and working, but other than Funhouse, and Addams Family, what other tables are there worth playing?
If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.

All of them.  Start with the top of the list and keep moving down.

Visual pinball, i'd more or less agree with Chad. Lots of really good repros of existing tables. Mousin' around, Black knight, Pinbot. Crap, that list could get really long. Good stuff.

FuturePinball on the other hand. I really love the base game, but separating the wheat from the chaff in the tables can be tough. There's a lot of good ones but a lot of junk too.

Lots of good original tables, too.

I find myself going back to "Triple Strike" often. It's brutally hard and ends the game on one tilt. I'm also really enjoying banzai run and haunted house right now. I tend to focus on tables until I learn their rule sets and drain vectors. Then I move on. I never really master a table because of this, but it always gives me something to go back to.

For Future Pinball, The Goonies and Back To the Future (both originals W/ DMD animations) are amazing tables.
