The four tables I purchased are derivative and have either an odd number of flippers, or asymmetric upper flippers, that are only useful for very specific and difficult shots (e.g. ball lock on Biolab). The tables also all suffer from strange bumps from the slingshots and sometimes the tip of the flippers that fire the ball right down the centre out-ramp (drain) before any reaction can be made; they try to address this problem with a ball save feature, but it happens too often and quickly becomes demoralizing. Also, the scoring feels "off" or disproportionate and takes forever to get a score above 10 million on any of the tables. The only success I've had is with the free table and I had to play for almost an hour to get 230 million and it became more of a chore than fun. Once I got that high score I "retired" the table and haven't played it since. The graphics are amazing, stunning even, but flashy graphics does not a good game make. I found Pinball Arcade to be have generally better physics and game-play. I won't be spending any more money on this game.
