Monster Pinball nails them all: The physics are spot-on, the graphics are eye-poppingly stunning, the flippers and plunger are responsive, and the board layouts are eminently playable.
In fact, the gameplay area is made of six interconnected pinball tables, and different pathways send your ball caroming between them. I'd love an option to play each table individually, but the game doesn't suffer without it. The sounds in Monster Pinball are as over-the-top as the pinball games in every arcade you've ever been in; a tiny mute button on the main menu screen comes in handy pretty quickly."
