Zen Pinball 2: Marvel's Women of Power
Top Critic Average
Their newest release, Marvel’s Women of Power celebrates the female superheroes in the Marvel Universe with a pair of super fun, albeit slightly confusing, tables featuring our favourite heroines.
Pinball FX: Marvel’s Women of Power is a fun virtual pinball game that really celebrates the amazing female characters from this comic book universe, especially from the animation and sound effects. The graphics are great and the two pinball machines are well designed that are bursting with colours, special effects and some traditional gameplay as it helps emulate a real-world pinball machine. So if you’re a Marvel fan and enjoy pinball, check out Pinball FX: Marvel’s Women of Power that is now available on Xbox One.
Another strong entry from the creators of Zen Pinball. I really did enjoy the Champions table, and a lot of the younger heroes featured in it, but I was blown away by the opening and the table for A-Force as well. If you enjoy pinball or the women in the Marvel universe, then there is a lot to like featured in this table. As you can tell from my Marvel’s Women of Power review, this is a must-have release.
I found Champions table to be the more fun out of the two, but they’re both great options for your pinball collection!
'Marvel's Women of Power' is yet another solid add-on for 'Zen Pinball 2.' Clearly Zen Studios knows how to produce great pinball tables, and it's a pleasant surprise to see lesser characters from the Marvel universe receive the spotlight. It's not the best DLC, as 'Aliens Pinball' and other tables have topped it by being more inventive, but it's still worth picking up if you're a comic book fan or are just looking for some new high scores to beat.
Marvel's Women of Power pack sees Zen Studios dip into the well of licensed properties, and bringing to life some of the lesser-known female super heroes in the Marvel comics franchises. The audio serves a great purpose in giving these characters some personality that would be enjoyed by newcomers to this Marvel property. The A-Force table is the easier of the two due to its openness; however, both tables are ultimately great additions to the ever growing Zen Pinball family. The comic art style used further embellishes a pack that Zen Studios has put as much tender loving care into as any of their previous packs.
With numerous Marvel tables having been released over the last few years or so, I have some favorites. Neither of the two here in Women of Power will be at the top of that list, but both how the usual Zen Studios polish and excellent overall table design. Of the two the Champions table was my favorite and both are a solid experience.
