The Epic Quest table for Pinball FX 2 and ZEN Pinball sets an interesting precedent for pinball games. Even after you’ve lost, your game is saved, allowing you to continue from that point the next time you play. With your experience and loot saved, you can continue the table’s “story”. Designed to blend pinball and RPGs, the table gets it right on experience, gear and levelling up (and is quite humorous), but the full RPG feel gets lost in the shuffle. That’s not to say it’s not enjoyable. I simply wish it would’ve borrowed more elements, like tutorials, from non-pinball games.

Verdict: Forget It
