Pinball FX2 - Star Wars Pinball: Rogue One
Top Critic Average
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.
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.
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!
The Rogue One table is particularly beautiful, even amongst the magnificent ones I’ve seen before.
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.
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.

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.
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.
