    If you enjoy Pinball there's a lot to like here.

    A collection of various styles of Pinball machines, some old/simple ones and some later day convoluted ones ( i can still barely comprehend what the hell's going on in No Good Gofers but i enjoy it all the same )
    The main highlight for my int his collection that sets it apard from other Pinball game collections is the table goal it's core it's an achievement system ( reach X amount of score, max multiplier, achieve extra ball, and so on ) Each table has two sets of goals; Basic & Wizard which are tiers of easy & hard goals respectively. 
    The 360's achievements are tied directly to these goal sets as all but one achievement are based on completing both basic & wizard goals for each table...the odd man out achievment is for completing the "Williams Challenge" which challenges you to get a minimum score on every table available in the collection. Completion of this challenge grants you access to Jive Time, an old pinball table from the early 70s, and thus a 100p achievement as well. 
    Aside from a few bugs and hiccups here and there the most disappointing thing about this package would have to be the lack of ability to filter the leader board to just your friend's scores.
    All in all this collection should be a flag leader in how to create a collection of pinball games and if fleshed out more in the score sharing department could turn into a great franchise for Pinball lovers.

Wow!   I have to admit that I thought I'd just play this game for a night and then be like "that was neat" and then move on.  But, it has me hooked.   The w...
