Soccer Pinball

0 of 0 people found the following review helpful
Soccer Pinball is, as you may have guessed, a football themed pinball game. Or at least partially.



The first table takes place on a table made to look like a football pitch. There's terminology from the beautiful game randomly written over the pitch and a couple of bumpers. At the top there are some pins which act as defenders the idea being to knock them down and then score a goal, two of which will allow you to proceed to the next table.



Unfortunately, it's very frustrating to play. The ball travels slowly around the screen resulting in it feeling sluggish to play. You'll spend most of the time in the bottom half of the table away from the goal and there isn't a lot to do here. When you finally make it to the top and hit a defender, nine out of ten times the ball will fall vertically downwards no matter what angle it was travelling at. As a result the middle defender often causes the ball to drop down through the gap between the flippers losing the player a ball and resetting all the defender pins. Once you finally do get onto the second table, the football theme is abandoned in favour of a poker themed table. Things don't get much better here, again there is little to do when you're away from the part of the screen where you can do the advancing activity. There are two more tables, but to be honest I'd already long got bored of playing the game.



The game's graphics are quite basic. Compared to the rich colourful tables seen on Pinball Dreams, the primarily two-tone screens combined with vast amounts of object-less space on Soccer Pinball look drab and boring.



Overall, the game is a disappointment and those looking for a fun pinball game should look elsewhere.
