This is a review of the entire release with all DLC included, not just the free version which comes with only one table.

Note that there are multiple bundles available. If you just want to start playing, you can try every table for free and if you want to purchase them to play more balls, consider one of these packs:
-Starter Pack: has a good selection of EM/SS tables as well as some remakes
-Starter Pack Plus: similar to Starter Pack but with different tables. It, and all other bundles here, are complete your set bundles, so upgrading to SP Plus from SP is much cheaper
-VR Starter Pack: a pack with only a few tables, but it does include the VR support
-Gold Pack: this has all the original EM/SS tables as well as their retro inspired tables
-Platinum Pack: has everything except for the licensed tables
No matter which pack you decide for, make sure it has the Bronze Pack included so that you can customize your tables and also play with 5 balls etc.

On to the review.


If you like old pinball tables, by which I mean electromechanical (EM) and early solid state (SS) tables, Zaccaria Pinball has a huge number to offer although a lot of it is quantity over quality. Which is not to say there aren't some really good tables in here, but be prepared to see a lot of tiny variations on the same design over and over again.

The modern tables which are somewhat comparable to the likely more famous Williams or Stern tables you can find in Zen Pinball FX3 and Pinball Arcade are the Remakes and recent Deluxe tables, which include (fake) DMDs or even full video screens.

So if you get everything ZP has to offer, you're going to end up with many classic tables as well as more modern tables. The good thing is, they all play very well. ZP has nailed the physics model and offers by far the most tweaks of any commercially available pinball simulator I know of. If you have the Bronze Pack just about everything is customizable, from the intensity of the lights to the amount of reflection on the glass cover, which itself can be customized in many states from invisible to old, dirty, and scratched. The physics can also be tweaked to a fine detail, although changing physics disables scoreboards (as it should).

Every table has multiple scoreboards in fact, from normal 3-5 ball play to special time limit modes and other unique modes per table. On top of that, ZP sells special Campaign and Zombie modes which take you through a series of tables with specific goals. These unique modes are not just a fine way to keep things fresh as you won't spend long on any table, but also to discover ones you might not have played before.

Can I recommend ZP? Yes, but since the content is so varied, make sure you know what you're going in for. With the EMs and SSs you're not gonna get tables like Williams' Terminator 2 or even Fish Tales, or the unique Zen tables with animated characters and gameplay modes, but you ARE getting a mostly unknown chapter of pinball history emulated to near perfect detail. If you like old school tables, you're in for a treat. If you don't, or aren't familiar with them, make sure you test them out first.
The Remakes and Deluxes are very familiar for anyone who comes from The Pinball Arcade or PinballFX.

In a nutshell, ZP has something for just about every kind of pinball fan but it may take you a bit to find the kind of tables you like best. Once you do, you have probably the best commercial computer pinball simulation available.
Review Showcase
Exciting heist game! There are multiple approaches to entering the mansion, in my playthrough I chose the roof. Taking down the snipers with the tranquilizer gun was fun, at least until the chimney I was climbing collapsed. Not sure if that was scripted or a trap?
It brought me right to a garden level where there was a cool chase sequence involving a tiger. After that it was back in the mansion and on to the vault.
The patrolling guards' narrative was amusing with a couple of in-jokes, although their AI needs a little work. I crouched right by one and they didn't see me. The game has good weather effects though, which actually distracted them so I could get to the elevator leading down.
Some weird dialogue in the elevator made me think I was missing something, but anyway after that it was straight to the vault and the emerald. The game seemed to glitch a little on picking up the emerald but I guess that's why it's free... all in all a good game experience!

The good:
-thrilling stealth gameplay
-exciting chase sequence
-funny narrative

The bad:
-long load times
-weird muffled dialogue throughout
-some audio and visual glitches making me think the game crashed where it didn't.

A quick guide on how to enable force feedback for this game and others that use DirectInput for Force Feedback rather than XInput, to get force feedback on the Xbox360 and compatible controllers using the same driver.
