    The biggest thing is that this is an all new engine, which is bound to have bugs in it. We went through the samething when Zen/Pinball FX 2 first released out as well. Not to mention, PFX3 wasn't designed with the Switch in mind. It's going to take sometime for Zen to get it fully optimize.
    I fully understand the difference between apples and oranges, but I should never be sold an apple and be told its an orange when really its an apple that one day with due diligence on the developers side may one day become an orange, then on top of that say,

    Yes, I like oranges more than apples.

      Finally downloaded. On tv it looks less than 720p. On handheld not bad horizontal, but how do you put it into vertical mode?

        Ok - button changes orientation. The touch screen gameplay sucks for me and doesnt seem to accurately respond, but maybe Im just old and dont know where the sweet spots to touch are. Going back to my ps4.

          I played Pinball FX2 on WiiU when it was released.
          I was fun for me but not great.

          I downloaded the free version of FX3 on switch.
          I appreciate that there are now 3 free tables which dont have a timer on them to play with.
          The 3 free tables are a lot of fun and are a big improvement over the FX2 tables i played.

          So far i played the game for 90% in portable mode and enjoy some quick pick up and play pinball action.

          I want to share some thoughts /problems on my experience with the game thus far.

          Portable mode play:

          Vertical mode
          There is a bug / ui issue that when you have to enter your initials after you have a high score the Ui is not vertical as well.
          Its weird and confusing.

          Table son of Zeus
          I experience slowndown on this table, didnt had this issue as much on Adventure land or Sorcerer's lair.
          As i am planning to buy some tables i am worried this is a issue on other tables as well ?

          Docked mode :

          Graphics
          I noticed the game looked low res and jaggie, this in on a 27 inch full hd monitor.
          The game looks much better in portable mode but this could be because of the smaller screen size.


          General / overall :

          The ui
          Same style as Pinball FX2 , to me its boring and not inviting and its nowhere near quality of the tables and game itself.
          The table collection menu could use a better and / or more exciting preview of the tables themself instead of a small logo.

          Views
          Like FX2 there are a lot of view options but somehow the view i am looking for isnt in the game and i end up switching between view 4 and 6.

            I don't find it unplayable at all, I wouldn't know there was a problem if people weren't complaining about it. Having said that, I fired up my PC based cabinet last night for the first time in ages and it looks 3 times better.

              Hey hajdu. What about frame rates in handheld mode? Is that something you guys think can be fixed and/or are working on?

                Hello!
                Can you create the option for turn off vibration on Joy Cons for your game? OR, maybe, to change a level of vibration (like in Mario Odissey done). Current vibration level is too high. I know, console have turn off vibro option, but I very dislike to go into options each time when changing a game.

                  Oddly enough I haven't ran into any issues with my game, I mean yeah the only table I got sop far is Portal (along with the two free ones)...but the game looks just fine to me. I haven't noticed any lag either, even when I played it in handheld mode.

                  The only problems I've noticed are with the leaderboards, sometimes the Friends section doesn't display properly. Tech and I are friends on the Switch yet his name never shows up for me.

                  Aside from that, I wouldn't mind an option to automatically put your name in when finishing a normal single player game. Kinda annoying that I have to put it in every single time.

                    Hi guys, new Switch user here. Pinball FX3 is the first game I bought on Switch eshop and it is great, but i have few suggestions.
                    I play only in handheld undocked mode.

                    Vertical mode - great feature, but please add an option to change the orientation also to other side, because left joycon is better for vertical play, its buttons are centered.
                    Also it seems I cannot use wizard powerups in vertical mode (with joycons attached on console), because there is no button assigned to activate the powerup.

                    Framerate - please add an option to lower graphics and run in 60fps (undocked), I prefer smooth framerate over better graphics. Because with current fps, I feel eye strain after longer play sessions.

                      Last point first, those are only local scores for entering your name so all you really need to do is press plus and skip it. No need to enter a name if you're the only one using your system.

                      I've also noticed if I keep my view point to the first setting the game seems to run a lot better in handheld mode. Switch to setting 5 where I like it and you will notice Son of Zeus run rather horribly. Even at setting one while much better I still see it slow from time to time. The other tables don't seem to be nearly as bad as SoZ.
