Real Pinball is one of the only pinball games on the 3DO with the exception of Pataank but that's not really a traditional type pinball game. When I got this game I thought it was going to be sweet, even though I heard some bad things about it I still didn't give up hope. Then I put the P.O.S. in the 3DO and my 3DO spit it out. Not really but it should have! This game is fun for about 10 minutes and then you feel like doing some skeet shooting with that Redrider BB gun you got for Christmas. Speaking of Xmas I got John Madden for 3DO and that's it. I bought it for myself. So expect that review up soon. There will be more updates. I have just had too much stuff going on in my life. I am writing this on a library computer. Fun stuff. Well back to Real Pinball.
I don't know I just don't like them. The intro of the game's pretty neat but the actual pinball action is pretty bland. It just looks lame and that takes away the fun of the game. It's a lot of Japanese stuff and all the tables have some kind of Japanese origin or something. Pretty lame.
The music is ok, not very catchy. Well the ball hitting the flipper ain't bad but that sure doesn't make the whole game great that's for sure.
What's to say here? Press and hold a button for the ball to shoot out, and press two different buttons to move the flippers. Not complicated. I guess this could be considered a good game for grandma or a really young kid. They'd probably get bored after ten mins. Like I did, oh well.
Ah here's where the game really shines and makes up for all that other stuff, right? Wrong! RP is one of the worst pinball games I have ever played. Pinball I always thought couldn't be screwed up since it was fairly simple, I was wrong I guess. I just isn't fun. The japanese thing did little to keep my attention.
This game is pretty bad. Download some pinball game for your PC, I almost guarantee whatever you download it will be better than this. The only reason you should consider buying this is if the kid next door, who's dog craps in your yard every single day, has a 3DO and his birthday is coming up. Then give it to him. Otherwise I say stay away. Still this RP is better than Alfred Hitchcock so if you could endure that and liked go for this game and you'll love it.
Price I'd pay-2 bucks w/ no shipping
