The realistic action, features and sounds make it a wonderful addition to a CD game library.
That's coming from someone who has been in the commercial side of the coin operated amusement industry since 1975!
The only thing missing is changing light bulbs and waxing the playfield!
This is a great CD and a great place to start playing pinball on CD rom....Have fun!
The games are faithfully rendered on-screen, and look and sound just like the originals. The gameplay itself, on the other hand, can be a bit choppy in places compared to the Pro Pinball engine. Cue Ball Wizard, in particular, is very difficult to play -- the sharp angle at which you view the table doesn't help. (If only they'd allowed you to view the tables from different angles...)
The earlier games provide a nifty sense of history for the pinball genre -- but are often not that much fun to play. The novelty may wear off relatively quickly for those used to today's tables.
Well worth a look -- and...it's not a bad value just for the nostalgia factor. If you want a great game as well as a history lesson, however, look to the Pro Pinball games.
