Pro Pinball Ultra reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Still a horny Pinball, but an absolutely shitchedled program At the Time of the Review (12.08.2016) this Package consists exclusively of "Pro Pinball! Timeshock!, "from a personal Point of view, the best Flipper IN the Series alongside" Big Race USA. " When Pro Pinball was launched, it was simply THE PINBALL Simulation that set Standards. However, times have also changed and with Pinball Arcade and Pinball FX2 THERE are also very strong Representatives of this Genre here on Steam. In principle, the prize-wide are also much more attractive, not only because they supply a Pinball After the free Download, but also the individual Pinball packages are currently cheaper than Pro Pinball Ultra, which currently only only a Pinball Delivers. Pinball Arcade is the better Simulation of Pinball than such, recreating this real Pinball tables, but is not an exact Ball simulation, as the Ball is easier to keep in Play. Pinball FX2, on the other hand, mainly offers Flippers with various Mini-games that function as such even as a Video Game, but it is more realistic in the Ball simulation and therefore a bit more demanding. Per Pinball Ultra, I'd rather call the Middling between these two. Timeshock! It is not based on a real Flipper, but has extremely realistic Ball Physics, but also does not give up numerous Mini-games, which, unlike Pinball FX2, can be explained and made sense within the Simulation. The standout Aspect of Timeshock! In spite of everything, it is Close to Reality. Graphically, all of this is so realistic, if you would hang a large Monitor with Dolby Surround boxes vertically on the wall and equip it with three Buttons, left, right and just to shoot down the Ball, you could consider that a real Pinball on the Wall. You really Feel like you're really standing in front of the Part and playing. And since the Flipper also has numerous Goals, there is also a lot to play and learn until you master it well enough to really play it through. Unfortunately, however, this Package is already Causing Criticism at this Stage. Funnily enough, this has nothing to do with the Flipper at all, this one is beyond reproach. But the Program as such, where you start the Flipper, is an absolute Disaster in my View. Not only does you have to create another Account to play it, you have to download the Flipper individually for every desired Resolution and even for each Camera Perspective (!)! The Graphics, which have to be downloaded differently at 1280x720, 1920x1080, 2560x1440 and 3840x2160, are still understandable to me in a way. If you want to play on 4K, you can also have 4K customized Graphics, while a Player with 1280x720 doesn't need them and instead gets the 720p graphics, even if you can still take the significantly better 4K Graphics even at 720p. But why you have to download the entire Table again for each of the five camera perspectives is an absolute Mystery for me. We are in the 3D Age, where you might think that you could change perspectives freely, since Coolie hats on Joysticks or Analog Sticks on Controllers ... And Techniques such as TrackIR or, more recently, VR. But not in this Game, here every Camera perspective is a very own Table and therefore not even changeable during the Game. The Evil is Compounded, however, because it is also not possible to play the Table in a different Perspective during the Download. For People with weaker Management, and I also include 6K these days, this is supposed to be a Warning. Don't be fooled by the 550MB Download, that's just the Client. The actual Size hammer only comes after that, even with minimal Resolution you have to switch freely between all Camera perspectives to which 2-3 GB are planning, correspondingly more at higher Resolution. In Addition, the Download takes place from the Server Of the developer and therefore people may not even Have something of their faster Line. I hope that is only due to the Fact that this is still in Development and will only need a Download later for all The perspectives that can then be changed during the Game. That was what was already going on in the Original. Of Course I recommend this Flipper, it is excellent, but only the one. The whole Program around there, in my View, is just big Crap.
