Review: Marvel Pinball Captain America

on June 27, 2011 3:00 PM

The latest table for Marvel Pinball could be the greatest.  That’s because the Captain America table is the most ambitious table out of the Marvel bunch. We’ve seen Wolverine, Iron Man, Spider-Man, and the Fantastic Four, but none of those really pushed the whole “character themed table idea” as hard as Captain America has. An example of this is when the pinball hits one of the bumpers on the Captain America table, a gunshot is heard. It’s not much and seems a bit stupid for me to say, but little things like that show me some effort was put in.

The table itself is beautiful. The World War II-like theme and golden and bronze (or copper? I’m bad at this kind of stuff) colors represent the leader of the Avengers very well. The music playing throughout your play on the table is a bit generic, but not the worst thing. The sound effects, like I mentioned, complement the theme well. You have gunshots, planes sounding like they’re flying over your head, and, of course, the sounds of Captain America as he’s vanquishing his enemies with the help of you, your pinballs and flippers.

For the price of $2.99 for an additional table, I’d say that Captain America is priced just right. It has enough to keep you entertained and also enough to differentiate itself from “just another table.”
