Four new tables have been recently added to Pinball FX 2’s ever-growing roster of downloadable pinball titles for play on Xbox 360. But these are actually classic tables, re-mastered with HD visuals. The four tables are Shaman, El Dorado, Tesla, and V12.
This table has a jungle witchdoctor theme with lots of spinning circles on the field to affect your ball trajectory. It’s charming in its simplicity.
This table has an Indiana Jones theme with lots of complex rules, ramps, and traps. In fact, there are so many ramps and passages that it can be a little confusing sometimes. The music is pretty cool, though.
Based on the experiments of a scientist who was ahead of his time early last century, the Tesla tables requires you to perform experiments dealing with electricity. There is a mini-playfield that you can shoot the ball up into, and to keep it in play, you don’t use flippers, but move the ball around with electromagnetic fields. So it’s pretty creative. Successfully completing this mini-field allows you to start one of 12 experiments for bonus points.
This is a really creative table because it’s designed to look like the inside of a car engine! Only problem is it’s too easy to lose your ball in one of the outside drop lanes, and it’s also a low-scoring table, too. But I still think it’s pretty neat. And those are all the tables. If you love Pinball FX 2, then these are good downloads to see Zen Pinball’s roots.
Pinball FX 2 is rated E for Everyone with ESRB descriptors of Comic Mischief. But hey, it’s pinball. Safe, non-violent, and no reading required. A good choice for a downloadable game.
