One thing I will say for it though – when you drain your last ball and you're asked to input your initials for your score, Riz Ahmed's character wistfully says “they're asking for a callsign...” as the three-letter faux-LCD screen blinks.
The Rogue One table is particularly beautiful, even amongst the magnificent ones I’ve seen before.
Wild West Rampage is still my favorite table by Zen Studios, but Rogue One is easily tied with Venom for my number two spot in the entire Zen Pinball repertoire. Any fan of Zen Pinball should not hesitate to pick this one up. It really is one of the standout tables in the library. I highly suggest it.
It's surprising how Zen Studios still has fresh additions to the virtual pinball genre. The Magna Save and a new mission selector gave us another addictive pinball table that will satisfy Star Wars fans and pinball enthusiasts.

At the end of the day, this does feel like a Star Wars experience.
Angus received a digital copy of Zen Pinball 2 - Star Wars: Rogue One from Zen Studios for review.
Star Wars Pinball: Rogue One is easily addictive but at the same time (for me) easily frustrating as I lacked the patience and precision to make it all the way to the end. Progressing in difficulty as you go through the story mode, this would be a good game for anyone up for a challenge and has a love for casual pinball games.
Rogue One is a brilliantly designed pinball machine and I enjoyed it so much that I'm likely to be a late arrival to the Zen Pinball series fandom. There was plenty of action on offer and I didn't find myself getting bored at any time. And I'm sorry but I have to… The force is strong with this one!
Star Wars Pinball: Rogue One is another in the very long lineup of great tables for Pinball FX2. The table is well laid-out mostly because of the upper centerpiece that constantly evolves to keep things different. Gameplay seems deceptively easy, but the challenge pops in once you get too comfortable. It has a wonderful presentation that'll please both pinball and Star Wars fans alike. Even though it is just one table in the package, this is certainly worth it for those who already know what Zen Studios can do.
Zen Pinball 2 – Star Wars Pinball: Rogue One is a great addition to the Zen Pinball 2 family. It is a sound table that enthusiasts will certainly enjoy. It also shows that experimentation is still very much a thing for the pinball table designers at Zen Studios. If you’re a pinball fan, this is a very fun table. But if you’re a Star Wars fan, then this is certainly a must-have release for your Zen Pinball 2 collection.
Overall, we both feel that Star Wars Pinball: Rogue One is one of the strongest pinball tables from Zen Studios, Star Wars or otherwise. There's plenty to do on this pinball table, and its ties to the Rogue One movie will allow fans to greatly enjoy the fast-paced action as they try to take down all enemies on their path in their quest for the highest score of them all.
The Rogue One edition of Zen Pinball 2 may not contain multiple tables, but the one that it does contain is a fun little excursion into an alternate Star Wars table. The open table leaves little room for forced errors, allowing for easy point multipliers and mission completion. Falling on the spectrum of one of the easier tables, this is a great way for newcomers to the pinball series to begin, while fans of Star Wars will find plenty of missions and mini-games here to let them relive the key moments from the Rogue One film. This great addition continues the trend of excellent tables that the developer has been creating.
The Pinball FX2 Star Wars Rogue One table is a decent addition to the collection though fairly average of a table offering some smooth though very focused lanes to knock the ball through and a boring backdrop.
Star Wars Pinball: Rogue One offers a great amount of fun for new and veteran players alike. Easy to pick up for anyone, but requires mastery to enjoy all the hidden goodness found in the game.
Star Wars Pinball: Rogue One encapsulates the world in which it wants to convey, but the table layout means that only the brave pinball players should give this a go as it’s really tough.
Zen Pinball 2: Star Wars Pinball - Rogue One offers us a standalone table instead of a suite of different ones collected around a single theme. Despite only having one table to play, it is an incredibly well-made one that should appease Star Wars fans and pinball fans alike.
Star Wars Pinball: Rogue One is yet another of a slew of amazing Zen pinball tables that fans of either Star Wars or Zen’s Pinball FX2 will most likely enjoy. I may have been spoiled in the past by Zen’s typical table packs, allowing me more than one way to experience a franchise, but at $3.99 you’re paying for 3 or 4 plays on a physical pinball machine, only you get to keep this one forever.
