If you like pinball, you can't lose.

Let's face it, the Virtual Boy basically flopped. It was priced way too expensively at first and never got the amount of developer interest it needed to really work. That aside, it still had some quality games put out for it. This is one of them.


Graphics 8 out of 10

Virtual boy had two colors, back and red, so amazing color can't be expected out of this system. The graphics do however, make decent use of the 3-d perspective of the Virtual Boy. Some of the special graphic treats, like the skeleton head on the UFO table, are worth the wait and patience it takes to earn them. One problem: no backgrounds. On some tables this is fine, but especially on the Alien table the lack of backgrounds make it look very bleak and dull. Putting it next to the other games for Virtual Boy, the graphics overall are quite good.


Music and Sound 7 out of 10

It's pinball music. Nothing spectacular. Nothing that will make you plug your ears with cotton balls either. It will get repetitive after hearing the same tune over and over only interrupted by bonus game music every once in a while. The sound effects, on the other hand, are very good. They make all your standard bleeps and bloops of a pinball machine, plus special noises to let you know when something is happening that you should pay attention to.


Game Challenge 6 out of 10

Hey, it's pinball. It's not supposed to be really tough. However, scoring high and getting bonuses can be very hard. An easy trick you learn really early is that you basically never have to let the ball go down the middle. By timing your flippers right, you can almost always save a ball that would have been lost in an arcade.


Game Play-Fun 9 out of 10

I like pinball. When it was released it was the best pinball game out for any Nintendo system. So I enjoyed it. If you aren't very fond of pinball in arcades, you arn't going to like it. If you enjoy a good pinball challenge, then this is the game for you.


Frustration

High scoring ranges from hard to nearly impossible depending on the table that you use. Otherwise, everything is easy to learn and do.


Replayability 8 out of 10

There are four tables, plus a bonus table that can be activated by hitting a certain number of stars on any stage. The variety is great, and can keep you playing for hours, except for the automatic pause every twenty minutes that you get in any Virtual Boy game.


Game Value 10 out of 10

I got it for 10 bucks. It's probably cheaper now. This is definitely one of the best values I've ever had buying a video game. I've gotten more than my money's worth out of this game.


Overall 9 out of 10

I'd have to say buy it. Out of the small line up of Virtual Boy games this is my favorite. The 3-d view gives a new and fresh gaming experience. If you like pinball, you can't lose.
