I was afraid of this. The gameplay itself is wonderful, the tables are really good, and the physics are best in class. But the user interface and feature set of this game are barely beyond The Williams Collection, much less anywhere near Pinball FX2.
There's no resume feature, the leaderboards for each table are several menus away from the table selection screen, the menus look awful, you have to scroll through each table one by one to select a table, there's no avatar support, you STILL can't complete any wizard goals without first completing the standard goals, and the list goes on.
This really saddens me. I want this game to be a success, and I want them to make more tables, but this sort of thing just makes the development team look amateurish before the gameplay even begins. The presentation and feature set of Pinball FX 2 absolutely puts The Pinball Aracde to shame. For anyone who doesn't REALLY care about playing classic tables, or experiencing the best physics around, they're just going to see a poorly put together pinball title that's not even as good as a game that they already own.
No matter what happens, I'm done buying DLC for Pinball FX 2, and I'm very much looking forward to new Pinball Arcade tables. I just hope they'll find enough success to make them.
