Title: Pinball FX2 VR
Release Date: 29 Nov, 2016
I must start by saying I like pinball video games, but I've always found Pinball FX2 a bit boring by comparison with The Pinball Arcade. Although the VR version of Pinball FX2 is the same game, it somehow feels more authentic. I don't know if they changed something or not, but suddenly the ball moves and sounds more like a real pinball table with extra toys and special effects. Standing over the virtual table, you know it's virtual, but it looks much like a real table.
In terms of the VR experience, it is perfectly suited to everyone's space because unlike most other VR games, you can stand or sit still and you don't have to wave your arms around as you would for a shooting game. Even the menu is controlled by head tracking. I think standing makes a big difference to the experience, but adjusting the viewing angle is not very precise and you can end up with neck ache from looking down at the flippers.
Unfortunately, as with the regular Pinball FX2, the tables still seem too easy and sometimes you are defeated by tiredness rather than a lack of skill as a game turns into a marathon session where the ball is saved over and over again. I guess that would count in the game's favour if you are a pinball novice. Still, I enjoyed playing the game a great deal and I would play the VR version now in preference to playing it on screen.
I would definitely recommend Pinball FX2 VR to pinball fans and VR enthusiasts alike. The VR version is making me like Pinball FX2 more than before and it didn't leave me feeling motion-sick like some VR games do.. let me start by saying i like this game, now let me say i am fed up paying for tables i have on ps3,ps4,steam and now steam VR i hate to be ripped off and sadly this is how i now feel so i will now play the tables i own but i will not be purchasing any new titles in future.
shame really to treat good customers in this fashon.
hope it bites you in the a^&. All i can say is wow give me more more more now now now!!!! I originally purchased this game for oculus home and was absolutely blown away by the 3 release tables which were honestly probably 3 of my least favorite pinfx2 tables, VR is amazing tho and so i gave them a chance and they quickly became 3 of my favorites, same with the season 1 dlc, I love the iron and steel pack but wasnt much of a fan of the other 3, but now both biolab and alien invasion are amongst my favs, paranormal is so-so imo but whatever its also alot of fun, at first like many other people i assumed this to be a way to get people to repurchase tables for 2x the price but soon after playing i found myself willing to buy every single pinfx2 table released in VR, and just when i thought it was already top notch it got released here on steam and there is a slew of improvements in the visual quality and i can now run the game at its highest resolution at 90 fps with 8x AA which was impossible for me when running the game on oculus home, this game is a huge win for virtual pinball, zaccaria has also done a great job with their vr support!!
What gives farsight studios??? TPA was first to announce oculus support almost a year ago, now here we are Zen Studios has done an outstanding job as has magic pixel with with the zaccaria VR support!! and still TPA has NOTHING but a bad mockery of the potential VR has, looks like TPA drained the ball on this one, hopefully you guys get something done over there because the ps4 stern app plays like a crappy android port and as one of your biggest fans i cant imagine anyone else is exactly happy with your lackluster efforts, VR should have been top priority if you guys were actually going to be true to your mission statement!. Get a table 35" high, place the Vive wands 22" apart on the table, laying on their sides with the triggers out and secure them to the table. Line up the controllers with the flipper buttons in the game, start playing and then curse Zen Studios for destroying your job, marriage, health and sanity, and giving you only unbridled happiness in return.. Game breaking issue. No sound and no response to A to continue. Can't use Xbox controller, but if I push the A on the keyboard i can continue on. I can cycle the pinball machines with the trigger but cannot access the machine with the Touch controllers. Sad to see this is a continuing error that hasn't been addressed. Returning the game and buying from the oculus store.... Dev no longer support this game, instead of adding new pinballs they made another version of the game to force you to buying a whole new package. The Dev doesnt care for the steam community at all,. The envirmonets are really well done. I like how the whole atmosphere changes for each table. Special effects are great, a little distracting at times, but I wouldn't want them changed.
The gameplay is just as good as console versions. Flippers are responsive and the physics seem realistic. The tables ( have all of them) are well laid out and fun.
My only real complaint is the room setup. I purchased all of the tables, but the room only holds 3 tables at a time. If you want to play other ones, you have to go to the menu screen (TV in the middle of the room) and replace a table in the room with one that you want. I would rather just have them all in a room and have the ability to go from table to table. If this can't be done, I wish the programmers would add another room if needed. But, this issue doesn't take anything away from the gameplay or how polished and well done the graphics and environments are.
I bought this on the summer sale for half price and felt it was well worth the money. I would recommend it to anybody who likes pinball.. Does not work well with Oculus touch controllers. Pressing A does not work - you have to pull back on the right thunbstick and then press it down. Not worth the hassle of remembering - for something with basically two buttons it has not even been mapped correctly for Rift.. Just a blast game to play in VR!!! My only complaint is that I will have to buy all tables that I already have in the normal version... thats abusive from the developers... Not sure but they just could have released a patch to bring it to VR but instead they chose to milk us all again with some 3D evioriment that would have been added for free... aor maybe gave us a discount on the final price for those tatbles that we already have... anyway, I will buy it again... but only on a discount.
