Thread: First impressions on jurassic park tables

  1. #1

    Default First impressions on jurassic park tables

    Nice pack. All 3 of them are really fun to play and captures the theme rather nicely. Though I have to say the obvious. The lack of John Williams score is surely disappointing. Grabbing the original voices etc is great and all but, The theme needs to be there. Next movie pack (If done) needs to have the music theme.


    Jurassic Park- A great table and it's great that you captured key moments of the movie. The missions are interesting and varied. Sounds and voices are great. My only gripe is how easy it is to start Stamped Mulitball. Really should have testers to test the tables out and find these types of modes that just brings the fun factor down a bit. I scored decent points Starting Multiball by shooting the left lane letting it bounce on the flippers and shoot it into the 'Lock' sink-hole. Rinse and repeat. I really think you should have testers on all your new your tables. As much as I like this table, I find that it'll be one of those marathon tables that I rarely play anymore. Either ramp up the amount of times you need to go through the left/right loops. Big scores for little work.

    Jurassic World - an Again nice table that captures the key moments of the film. What I like about this table is that Multiball isn't as easily accessible. The missions could have used some more uniqueness. There are at least 3 where you shoot random lanes, then you do something else. the other thing is the right upper shot to the ramp above the bumpers. you need accuracy on that as some missions require you to hit that shot. Granted having random shots helps so you don't have to hit that shot every mission.

    pinball Mayhem - Describes the table perfectly. No distinct way of telling how many missions need to be done. The modes are all interesting. I love the stacked Crane and other Multiball that the table has. Alas it will be a marathon table and another table that can be plagued by the ease that the Multiball can be accessed.

    Overall a nice table pack that captures the Jurassic theme.

    Don't get paid until Friday so havnt gotten the tables yet, so my first impression is, demo is too short. I will buy them Friday and if the mahem table is fast paced and high scoring I will probably like it.

    It is pretty high scoring. I've barely scratched it and figured some things out fairly fast. I'll go for number one tomorrow or Friday.

    Those magna saves are absolutely needed on Jurassic Park. Ball times aren't that long for me at least. Almost any shot at the door for the tour goes straight through the middle.

    Do you have your system set up to only see PS4 players? My score is higher then that.

    I'm pretty sure the Switch has worldwide leader boards. Most of the people I see are not Switch owners.

    I don't think so otherwise we would both be looking at the same scoreboard. I have clicked many names on the leaderboards that will not allow me to send a friend request. These are people on other systems other than ps4.

    Then what leader boards am I looking at? Clearly only a small percentage are Switch owners because I can't friend most of them.

    I believe they are switch users that have, "receive friend requests" turned off? I just sent you a friend request from my switch, but several directly below you did not allow me to.

    It can't be just Switch owners as when I dl,ed the game day one there was already thousands of scores. Now I can make it Switch only in the settings but my system is set to network share across all platforms. Clearly one of those platforms are not available for us to see and I'm going to guess its PS4.

    According to Zen themselves: http://www.pinballfx.com/?page_id=7115

    Will there be new leaderboards?

    Yes, Pinball FX3 will be a clean slate for everyone, with new beginnings on the leaderboards as well!

    Now, I am confused

    Pinball FX3 Cross-Platform Details

    Leaderboards, Matchups and Tournaments are all cross-platform enabled between the following communities and devices:

    PlayStation Network + Steam
    Xbox One + Windows 10 + Steam.

    Please note, players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 may restrict their gameplay experience to their platform only if so desired, meaning Playstation 4 players can elect to play with others only on PlayStation 4.

    My personal feeling is that either Zen or Nintendo has no idea what they are doing. I mean, can you see me on your network and just cant click me?

    I'm not really certain where to look at my settings to even turn off the ability to see cross platform players.

    Sony doesn't allow cross platform with other consoles. Most likely the Switch and Steam versions have cross platform with each other, just like the PS4 and XB1 versions.

    Thanks for the response. I'm pretty sure we also have Xbox since I can play with those users on Rocket League and Minecraft. Too bad I don't get to see my scores compared to PlayStation users though. Seems more users are there then any other one platform.

    I will keep you updated on your score on Jurassic meham. I mean, assuming by chance I am the one who beats your score. If someone else beats it, well, hmmmm. Just kidding Dude. Your score is solid and I will keep you updated. Right now you own it and I'm that guy that no one remembers............second place, but its just another in a list of more than 10 where I am in top 5. I can live with that.

    How can this impression thread turn into a thread that discusses cross-platform integration and such?

    My criticism still stands on the Jurassic park table. Just to easy to get MB scores for Stampede Multi-ball. Much like the Star wars episode V table where you could just get the ball into the bumpers and hit them 50 times and then score lots of points on that. Granted Deep tweaked that for PBFX3 yet still.... A great table (at the time) hampered by ease of Multiball.

    Still I have a switch too. Don't have anything other than the free games they gave away. They dont even have marvels women of power available to download. I have every table on ps4. Just the experience on switch was less than perfect and having to buy table on one or the other, well, that was an easy decision. If you get MWOP: C let me know, what the high score is please, cause right now I have the high score at 140 billion plus. I kind of hate the nintendo cause they dont even allow you to have the base trial periods on any table.
