Zen Studios definitely know their pinball. This game will be fantastic.

Be interesting to see Pinball in 3D and Zen Studios truly love pinball games, they make their games very unreleastic in terms of visuals (which makes it more exciting) but very realistic in terms of gameplay (almost like playing real pinball). It works, the 360 and PS3 Zen Pinball games are fantastic. I see no reason why this won't be unless its lacking in content or visual flair.
