General Admission's Sport Pinball series rank among some of the worst pinball games ever made. Each game in the series presents one sport-themed table, and gets boring once you pass the initial "ooh, sport-themed table" novelty in the first few minutes. |
The table looks nice at first. The graphics is crisp in SVGA, and you see the entire table at all times. But there is simply not enough combos and table objects to keep you from getting bored - hitting same objects over and over again to get a higher score is just not fun. To add insult to injury, ball physics is suspect: the ball would sometimes speed up inexplicably, and doesn't feel realistic at all.
While an interesting concept, Sport Pinball games are simply too repetitive to hold your interest longer than a few minutes. It lacks modes, bonuses, and any semblance of a good ball physics. Even ERE's early pinball games are much more fun than this series of forgettable Real Dogs.
