PInball Arcade for PS4

 Real or Fake?

Real or Fake?

I'm quite a fan of pinball. Not very good at it, but quite a fan. I've payed with the Pinball Arcade program on my PS Vita, but today I got a copy for the PS 4. And it is ace. It really works well on the big screen, and the implementation of the Twilight Zone table is really, really, good. I've actually played the real table quite a lot, and the emulation is very faithful. I reckon it is slightly easier than the real deal, but that is not a bad thing as far as I'm concerned.

On a big screen the program looks very good. I'm not sure how much of the rendering  power of the PS4 is actually being used by the game, but it looks very good with faithful reflections of the table design in the ball is it whizzes around,and no hint of slowdown when you get some multiball action. 

The only criticism I can make is that the game sound effects don't sound very good through "proper" speakers. This is more to do with their origins as eight bit samples I suppose, but it does detract a bit from the game. I think a bit of judicious filtering on them to remove the slightly rough sound might be a help. 

But if you are into pinball, and want to try out loads of tables and get something very close to a real experience, then this is a really good bet.
