The best PC pinball game?
 
I'm looking for a really good pinball game for the PC. What's the best one on the market today?

I wouldn't say it's the best, but KISS Pinball is cheap and fun. Especially for KISS fans.

Any of the Propinball series are drop dead beautiful and fun to play.

The Web - a little long of tooth but still fun to play
Timeshock - absolutely stunning to look at and great game play
Big Race - Very nice looking and fun (a little complicated for my tastes)
Fantastic Journey - Stunning graphics but my least favorite of the series

Microsoft Pinball Arcade does a nice job recreating actual tables.

Here's my favorite site dedicated to PC pinball:

They rate a bunch of games.

Good luck,
AWII

Thanks man. My friend has MS Pinball Arcade on his machine and I checked it out, it's cool. I'll check that link out.

I agree the gameplay of fantastic journey was crap compared to especially Timeshock but also big race USA.

I would pick Timeshock any day

I highly reccommend Adventure Pinball. Me and Sat played that thing for months before we got tired of it. It should be in the bargin bin by now, so you can pick it up cheap.

Take a look at www.pinmame.com if you're interested in PC simulation of tables you own.

Pinball Illusions and Pinball Fantasy are perhaps not up to date, but they still bring that nostalgic arcade feeling. Also, recent emulators (eg. DOSBox) does a darn good job in scaling EGA/VGA graphics for recent machines, so I'd really give these games a closer look if I were in your shoes. Probably really cheap nowadays, or even released for free on eg. Abandonware. Oh, for Windoze I prefer the one that came with XP. Erhm, Cadet, right?

Psycho pinball was my fave, retro but a damn good game. :)
