From Soho down to Brighton I must have played them all

Following on from the trailer announcing their latest title The Pinball Arcade, the folks over at FarSight studios have released another clip revealing a little more detail over the pinball tables from the game.

The clips runs to 3:25 minutes and features the same tables from the previous trailer, namely Tales of Arabian Nights, Theatre of Magic, Ripley's Believe or Not, and Black Hole. Along with each table, we are treated to a slightly longer glimpse of the gameplay, visuals, and audio to be expected on each of the tables.

The Pinball Arcade remains on track for an early 2012 release on the Xbox LIVE Arcade. However, pricing details have still not been confirmed at this time.

I remember playing the heck out of theater of magic. I might get it just for that depending on how much it sticks to the original.

If it's as good as Pinball FX 2 then I might consider it, quite fond of PF2.

I love pinball but the arcade games just don't seem to do it justice... don't get me wrong, the arcade games look good and play well - they just can't duplicate a real table.

the ball physics on those tables looks to be way off. Maybe I'm too used to PFX2 but it just looks horribly unrealistic

^I was just about to say the same thing. The ball appears to be floating above the table instead of rolling on the table. The speed seems way off as well.
If you consider the fact that they're aiming to compete with Zen's Pinball FX for the best arcade pinball game, it's clear that they still have a lot of work to do.
As it is now, there would be no reason to choose this instead of Pinball FX2, except for the trip down memory lane.
I probably will still get this regardless, but even then, my real focus will remain at Pinball FX2.

Ball needs to be reflective and have some blemishes so you can see it moving, lighting needs to be more realistic. With pinball you really need that sensation that the ball is rolling as well as feedback (easy done with vibration). Still, it does look like I'll be getting it, though I'm no fan of old tables like Black Hole, I like mid 80's onwards myself.

I'll be sticking with PBFX2, but if they get the rights to remake certain tables I loved back in the mid 90's I may well find there's room for 2 pinball sims on my xbox!

Farsight's physics in Williams and Gottlieb are so spot-on that I find out my familiarity with the virtual tables translates over to the real machines when I get the chance to play them in museums and pubs. Looking forward to this a great deal.

Of course, I do play FX2 quite a bit, and fully intend to continue buying Zen's tables and play their game right alongside Pinball Arcade, just as I play FX2 and Williams Collection currently.
