Game developer Zen Studios has released its arcade-style pinball video game, Zen Pinball 2, for Wii U. The game is available for download on the Nintendo eShop.
yeah! great headline numpties! its been out in europe on wii u for weeks, please note america there are other places in the world you know jeez. All im waiting for is the star wars pack..
It's just O.K. I downloaded it yesterday and bought one table to try it. The game is free, you pay for DLC tables. If you buy them all, it's over $70! Wayyyy to much for pinball IMO. Should not be more than $40 bucks total. I will wait for a sale before I even think about purchasing more tables. The gameplay? Well, its fake pinball. The physics are not always accurate, there is nothing really new about it.
When I was in high school, one of my favorite games on my Windows 95 machine was a pinball game. I think it was something like $30 and had all of three or four tables on it. In comparison, $70 or so sounds like a bargain -- that's not to imply I want to spend that much, however.
Is $70 too much for like 20+ tables? Really? Pinball Arcade is selling tables for $5 a piece. Zen 2 usually goes for 3-4 tables for $10.
Guess I'm just not that big of a Pinball video game fan to pay that kind of money for it. It seems others are excited for it though, so if it's your thing then by all means, go for it.
Pinball of any kind is definitely my thing (except the turd that is Pinball Arcade/Farsight Studios). I'll be attending Pinburgh 2013 (national PAPA pinball championships) in April.
so the wii u is having a hard time selling and I guess this is supposed to be the answer? :) lol
Your telling me... OMFG A PINBALL GAME.
If they only had that tranformer and pirates of the carribean tables! I'm still getting it just got back into this stuff.
Is it any other newly released game for WiiU worth playing than Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate? No, didn`t think so. Go hunting fellow hunters!
