    Unhappy Not really happy ...

    I'm not really happy with Zen Pinball on the Xbox one.
    First comes the UI, which is really VERY minimalistic on the XB1,
    on the Xbox 360 graphically it was very nice and costly designed (The Xbox360 Version had a AAA+ Feel.), whereas the xbox one version with its few windows and animated backgrounds, looks really very cheap & boring.
    Then there are the PinballFX defining Tables (PinballFX1) missing which is pretty sad...


    This all gives me this "cheaply thrown together" feel for the xb1 version.


    Dont get me wrong, you guys are doing a great job but the whole xb1 thing seems messed up, not on par with the
    quality i am used to by ZEN.

    You forgot to mention the bizarrely missing ball rolling sound effect...

    Personally I think the UI is much nicer. But i'm a minimalist, so this is just personal preference. BBIAJ is right... where the hell is the ball rolling sound?! In fairness I didn't realise till now.

    It would be nice for the leaderboards to be reliable, and maybe an online multiplayer mode. Apart from that, I still eagerly await the original Marvel pack, PvZ, Street Fighter, Earth Defense, Excalibur... I only have two tables on the Xbox One!

    I don't expect to find out a release date for these tables, but am I looking at the next few months or next year?

    I'm with you OP. A lot of steps backward on the UI on the XB1. The tables being divided up makes them more organized and better in my opinion, but everything else is not as good as the 360 UI.

    Why can't they get the achievements that you have unlocked to stay showing as unlocked? You scroll up and down the achievement tab and they are constantly appearing and disappearing. So much missing info from the 360 interface. Even after the busted leaderboards are fixed I still think there will be features and info that was on the 360 that I will miss.

    The only problem that I have with the UI is the incredibly small font that they've used. It's barely readable at the distance I si fron the tv.
