This thread is what the title suggests, a buyers guide to pinball FX3.

I’ve played every single table from zen studios that’s available on ps4 and spend quite some time with the game the last 5 years across several platforms.

Basically if anyone has questions related to pinball FX3 like what to buy, about specific tables etc just ask me and I probably will answer it.

2 important notes
First note: I might play a specific table so I can answer a question or recommend something if someone wants it but I can’t guarantee it.
Second note: everything available on ps4 for pinball FX3 will be available on switch down the line, just so everyone knows.

Ask ahead!

I just tried this game and it is great! I've never played pinball games before but I really like this one. I think I will buy the dlc of Castle Storm, it looks very nice! Maybe I will buy other tables too, I'm not sure yet but since I like it so much it is quite probable.

@LuckyLand castlestorm comes buned with the wild west rampage table, they’re definitifily worth the money. If you want any recomandations, portal 2 is IMHO the best table, I’ve played that one over 10 hours on ps4 and it’s a real fun one and also not hard.

Just had a quick go on Son of Zeus and it seems to be a really good table. I normally prefer tables with extra flippers but this one seems to have enough going on to keep things exciting.

My favourite table on Wii U is one of the originals, Epic Quest. Love it, I'm definitely buying that again. Not a fan of Excalibur though. Empire Strikes Back is another favourite but I could never get into Boba Fett or Clone Wars. I should give them another go as my mate really likes Clone Wars. I've heard Bobs Burger is a really good one.

I've played Zen Pinball in the 3DS and I love it, one of my favorite games by far! I love the 3DS Excalibur! table! and when I read it was out on the switch I had to run home download it and try it! All I can say is I love it!, the fact that you can spend a lot of game hours with the 3 free tables included in the free to start game!

I'm a Pinball fan so I'm sure I'm going to spend some money on some tables.

My recommendation would be to buy the Season 1 Pack and the Universal Pack! if you are really a fan of Pinball!

Son of Zeus is my favourite table so far. I've noticed that there are some tables based on movies and they say that more tables will be released in the future, I'd like so much a table based on The Goonies! It would be awesome! Could it be possible? I keep my fingers crossed for sure!

Do they take suggestions for more collabs? Or do they just do whatever they want?

I’ve downloaded the Universal Classics and Aliens packs alongside the free tables. So tempted to just buy them all but I want to pace myself and learn a few tables at a time. That won’t last!

I don't like that you always have to put your name in again and again.
The prequel, Zen Pinball 2 on Wii U, remembered the last name, and the name entry screen was part of the pinball table and not a basic pop-up window.
Also, on Zen Pinball 2, you could switch between online highscores and local highscores with a press of a button, in Pinball FX3 I couldn't find a similar feature, maybe I need some more time to get used to the unfamiliar menus.

@SKTTR yeah, surprised about re entering your name. Might have to switch to old school arcade style and limit myself to 3 characters

@Joeynator3000 they do take suggestions but mostly based on existing collabs.
Had to edit something out because of misinformation, sorry.
Sometimes they push towards a collab with enough suggestions. They also ask for suggestions on social media.
Although don’t expect them to have a table ready directly after a suggestion, they plan months, and maybe even a year ahead especially with their continueing deal with disney/marvel and disney/star wars and fox.

I’m still waiting for zen studios to make a family guy star wars 3-pack and a indiana jones 3-pack after my suggestions several years ago 😂 fun thing was those were tables they themselves really wanted to make too.

@Joeynator3000 if you really want a specific table, just suggest it to zen studios, and if they like the idea, maybe if you’re lucky you’re idea gets released in about 2 years 😜

@darkswabber Which tables do you consider the best value for your money?

Ugh, every time an event happens I'm not able to hit a certain spot, despite the fact that I hit it constantly before. >.<

@darkswabber

Hi, what are your personal top 5 tables (of the ones currently on Switch?)

Are you planning to repurchase any tables again on Switch? It could get quite expensive!
