REGARDING THE EULA
: I looked further into it. It's been changed again.
Now you may be thinking that the game will be full of ads. Nope, that's not the case. I'd say it's rather limited, actually. It's mostly because of all the promotional pinball tables that you can buy (e.g. Star Wars tables, Marvel tables). No ads popping into your face. There's really nothing to worry about.
Whether it is still collecting information like your location/IP addrees, hell if I know. Most of this only applies to you IF you open a ZEN account. Now I'm not sure whether the game automatically creates a ZEN account for you using your Steam account information, which it can access of course (like almost every game).Now about the game:
I've been longing for a good Pinball game since Pinball Fantasy on the Amiga. This game is pretty much what I wanted. Even the ball physics work almost the same way as in Pinball Fantasy.
There was 1 huge problem I had with this game, which was input lag. I found a fix for it on the community formus.
As for the cameras, the 3rd and the last camera setting works for (since I'm used to Pinball Fantasy), the rest are indeed pretty bad though. Most of them are set pretty low which gives a very skewed view on the table.
As for the tables themselves, looks like the original tables are the best although also a bit cheesy (but hey, if classic pinball tables are your thing, then you'll love them). The Star Wars tables and most of the promotional ones, although they look good, most of them are pretty boring. I absolutely recommend the Portal table though. It's on of the most creative tables out there.
The pricing seems reasonable to me (I mean, they could've asked for like 30 dollars and include 4-5 tables as usual with pinball games). Most of them also come in packs, so you can save a bit + there's always steam sales.
