Star Wars Pinball VR is the perfect experience for fans of Star Wars and pinball. It's wonderfully immersive as you chase high scores, unlock in-game decorations and uncover the minigames for each table. I came into this game as a massive fan of Star Wars and VR, but with only a minor interest in pinball, and have been really enjoying my time with it. I can certainly recommend it to anyone with a combination of at least two out of those three elements.

Star Wars Pinball VR is, probably, one of the best VR pinballs out there. It only need more tables and a little polishment, because all the rest is already there, starting for the inmersion, great table and mini games design, the options to customize the fan cave, different game modes...

Star Wars Pinball VR doesn't offer many tables and we would have expected more interactivity, but any fan of the saga shouldn't miss it.

Star Wars Pinball VR is a serviceable pinball game that has no business being in VR. The eight tables all feel very similar, the visuals are incredibly low quality, and the Fan Cave is pointless.

This is a great pinball collection but in its current state, it comes with a BIG caveat. The game crashes. A lot. It seems to be related to the online connectivity portions of the game. Before the game and servers went live, the online portions did not crash. Now it crashes every time you try to access the leaderboards. In its current state, I do not recommend picking this collection up. Keep a tab on the game and wait till you hear these issues have been addressed. Once they have, this is a for sure pickup.

One of the best flipper simulations ever finally come to PC VR and it's as good as the original experience. Also, can someone somehow build a fan cave in my house please?

While Star Wars Pinball VR has all of the fan service necessary to please any diehard fan, it runs up against a handful of minor technical and polish issues that prevent it from living up to its full potential. That said, it still outclasses every other pinball experience on the platform, so feel free to indulge your inner Jedi.

Zen Studios takes eight of their beloved Star Wars pinball tables and blows each of them out into the VR space in delightful and unexpected ways. Each of the tables offers hours of fun, and Zen provides a ton of ways to interact with them. The "basement cave" framing device provides a great extra layer of reward for engaging with the game. Recommended without reservation.

Star Wars Pinball VR is a strong collection of tables that all play differently from each other, whether it's the large dominating loops of Rogue One, the small spiral tower of Classic Collectibles or the dark and light holocrons of Masters of the Force.  The tables revamped from standard-screen play were already a good pinball time and the two new ones complement them well, plus the move to VR makes any digital pinball better.

If you've always wanted a Star Wars themed "cave"... this is the cheapest way to get it!

Star Wars Pinball VR lacks a lot of content and even controls aren't as good as they should be. But the game is still pretty good, mainly for Star Wars fans.

Star Wars Pinball VR is an excellent package of virtual pinball fun that's unfortunately weighed down by an absurd amount of bugs and some inherent issues. Here's hoping that it'll be patched but until then, I'd wait before pumping quarters into this pinball game.

Star Wars Pinball VR has given me one of my first experiences on the Quest 2 headset and it didn't disappoint. It has almost everything a Star Wars fan such as myself would want for long gaming sessions with a headset on. For $24.99 it is worth the money to play tables from the original trilogy and some of the other better television shows and movies as well. I highly recommend this title for any VR enthusiast or Star Wars fan.

Star Wars Pinball VR provides a pretty good bang for its buck, given that there are eight total tables and two of them are brand new. Some table layouts and thematic choices will resonate with people differently, but as a whole the package is quite enjoyable. The presentation is fantastic, both of the new tables are well-made and Star Wars Pinball VR gives me hope we will see even more virtual reality pinball from the wizards at Zen Studios in the future.

Star Wars Pinball VR is the best representation of pinball you’ll find in virtual reality, with its brilliant pinball tables and iconic collectibles making for one heck of a fun experience. There’s no doubting that it’s going to be appreciated more by fans of Star Wars, but even those who simply enjoy playing pinball will find themselves very impressed by the selection of tables on offer and their wild moments of interactivity. Add to that the elements of progression with the Career Mode and the Fan Cave that’s packed to the brim with Star Wars memorabilia to unlock, and you’ll quickly find yourself losing hours on end in this pinball experience from a galaxy far, far away. There’s no doubting it: the force is STRONG with Star Wars Pinball VR.

It might offer just the bare minimum to immerse you in a virtual reality world, but it features so much content and so much delightful fanservice, that it’s impossible not to love playing a few rounds of a nearly-realistic VR pinball experience while Grogu looks at you from a distance.

If you haven’t been playing your VR device lately, Star Wars Pinball VR is the perfect reason to charge it back up. This is perhaps the closest you can get to experiencing these tables in real life and they translate so well in the VR space. Even if you’ve played Star Wars Pinball before, I think this version provides enough of a unique experience that warrants an additional playthrough.
