ZEN PINBALL 2: STAR WARS
VIta/PSN + PS3/PSN
Thereís this bloke, right? And heís all dressed in black. Itís dead
worrying though, as he isnít Johnny Cash ícos heís wearing a cape,
and Johnny Cash didnít wear capes. Anyway, this bloke also has a
mask on, right? Which is really sad because itís like he thinks heís
too ugly to show his face. Like maybe because heís got really bad
Well, itís a different way to introduce the one, the
only, the deadly, the daddy of them all Ė or at least Luke Ďní Leia
- Darth Vader. Heís just one of numerous key Star Wars
figures to show their face Ė or, indeed, not show it - in the newest
thing from those masters of everything videogamey and pinball, and
the best Hungarian thing since Zsa Zsa Gabor first married a Rubikís
Cube (darlink), Zen Studios.
Three tables feature in this
Zen Pinball 2 add-on, each
with nods to various pinball eras, with the added joy of shit that
just canít happen on real pinnies. Yes, Zen embraces the
videogameyness of their creations, so stormtroopers tromp around,
lightsaber battles battle and TIE fighters buzz about all
mozzie-like. It doesnít detract from the core aim of keeping
metallic balls in play, and itís ace.
The Empire Strikes
Back, the second flick, which George Lucas later decided was
the fifth, scores a table, as does some bloke named Bob Afett, and
Clone Wars. Theyíve all one thing in common other than the
screechingly obvious, theyíre all brilliant. Sure youíll regularly
stare at your screen Ė be it Vita OLED or whatever youíve stuck to
the end of the video cable dangling from your PS3 - incredulously as
another ball bounces out inexplicably, but get zoney and youíll
struggle finding anything funtasticer to spend five minutes to a
full Vita battery charge messing with.
