Publisher: Zen Studios / Developer: Zen Studios / Platform: PSN, XBLA

Pinball FX2 surprises us once again with another IP nobody ever thought they’d see as a pinball table: Star Wars!

At this point I braced myself for a game that was either going to be an important statement or an uncomfortable mess. Read More
