Zen Studios has a knack for making great games; Star Wars Pinball is no different. They have taken all the great aspects of seemingly every pinball game and put together a package that is by far the best in its class. Even if you are not a fan of the Star Wars brand, the simple but engaging gameplay, the amount of content and modes, and the fast pick up and play sessions make this pinball game a must own on the Nintendo Switch.

Star Wars Pinball is an exquisite work that will delight any Star Wars fan with its immense amount of content, surprising level of depth for a pinball game, and high production values, including ways of delivering an experience as close as possible to a real pinball game. Truly a top-brass work in the pinball genre and which fits perfectly in the Nintendo Switch catalogue.

If you're a fan of pinball and have a Switch, then it's a must-purchase. Big fans of Star Wars will probably get a kick out of it too with all of the tables focussed on one aspect of the franchise or another.

Star Wars Pinball is packed full with content, and offered at a more than reasonable price given all the goodness found therein, even for owners of the same game on 3DS and Wii U which both only received a fraction of what is on offer here. Moreover, this one brings the same level of graphical fidelity found on the base versions of competitors' consoles, with HD rumble, TATE mode, and portability added on top for good measure. This is a serious contender for best pinball game of all time right here, especially for fans of the Star Wars universe.

It’s quintessentially pinball, and whether or not that appeals to you effectively means you’re either in or out before you’ve even seen a trailer. But what’s on offer here is beyond anything I was expecting, and Zen Studios’ previous iterations of their pinball mastery to shame. The sheer detail and love that’s gone into Star Wars Pinball is unparalleled, and as a Star Wars fan those little moments that they’ve added just to make people like me smile has really elevated this entire game. This entire pinball game.

Star Wars Pinball is a great collection of themed tables, and it manages to fit as many references from the series to please any Jedi or Sith Lord. Of course, if you’re not a fan of either Star Wars or pinball, I would first recommend Zen Studios’ other pinball tables or other Star Wars games.

One of the most complete pinball games on the market, with 19 tables, lots of game modes (including career) and a strong online community element -choose your side of the Force- that make it one of the better pinball games on the market. Add all the Star Wars charm, characters, music... and sure you will fall in love if you try it.

Star Wars has finally come to Nintendo Switch. While it might not be in the form that appeals to everyone, that doesn't make it any less accessible. With short and snappy missions, it's perfect for bursts of short play on a commute or longer sessions in search of high scores and holocron shards. Switch-exclusive features such as the Career mode, the updated Galactic Struggle, an unlockable soundtrack and support for vertical play make this a fine addition to the platform's growing pinball library, and a silly yet authentic ode to all things Star Wars.

To enjoy Star Wars Pinball it will certainly help if you a) like digital pinball and b) love Star Wars. Assuming that's the case, you'll find plenty to savour in this excellent collection of themed tables. If not, knock a star off and try your luck with Pinball FX 3 first.

Star Wars Pinball is a fun and complete experience for fans of pinball and star wars alike, but it could bring boredom rather quickly for those who are not big fans of the goold old pinball.

This is the P'nball game you are looking for... especially if you are a Star Wars fan. There are 19 digital tables inspired by movies and animated series, a career mode with a lot of challenges, and you can experience them with the configuration that suits you the most en Switch (touch controls, vertical play,HD Rumble...), which makes Star Wars Pinball something very attractive, preferably on handheld mode.

There are enough special features and fan service to entertain the pinball agnostic, and plenty of interesting gimmicks and modes to satisfy those who think of "Star Wars" as Reagan's missile defense system.
