FIGHT: PinBall Dreams vs. ZEN Pinball

i see no one compared those titles yet... so here comes the pool. let them fight! after voting leave a reply with pros/cons about 'em. and don't vote if you didn't try both - please it's important.

i really want to buy one pinball game. those two are getting really positive feedback around here, so it's hard to pick just one.

thanks,
pante

Go with Pinball Dreams, without a doubt.

You can play in Landscape Mode and you even get 4 tables, as opposed to only 1 table with ZEN.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

Well to be honest I haven't tried the zen tables, but i figure 4 for the price of 1 wins everytime right?

pro Zen:
realistic physics, 3D


pro Pinball Dreams:
alot faster, more fun, more complex, memories, fantasic sound and music, 4 very different tables, landscape mode


Zen is really nice, especially Rollercoaster, but Pinball Dreams is simply a pinball gamers dream I already wasted two days again playing it continuously.

I haven't played Pinball Dreams yet, but Zen pinball is terrible. The framerate is bad and the worse part is the flipper lag. For $5 a table the Zen series is a rip-off. They don't add features or fix their games, they just put out another table at the same price.

I don't get it! Pinball Dreams is only for retro fans, but the ZEN pinball games (we are talking about two games!) are like the Pro Pinball series. The ZEN games are real pinball simulations and Pinball Dreams is just an action game using a ball.

if you want something technologic, buy zen. If you prefer a good pinball with a lot of fun, don't hesitate, purchase pinball dreams !

I have the 2 zen and Pinball dreams. If I want to show the iphone capabilities I will run zen. Otherwise if I want to PLAY, pinball dreams is the one to have !
