Austin Mackert present “Pinball” for the CD-i, and I thank him for letting me know how glad I should be for missing out on any pinball games for the CD-i system.
How much alcohol would you have to consume before this game even approached a minor level of fun? Seriously, look at where the flippers start, and look where they end when you flip them.
That’s just pebble on the mountain of bad that is this game. Forget alcohol, I think we’d have to go even more “recreational” in order to enjoy this game, just to drown out the sounds.
OK, I just looked at the “List of CD-i games” on Wikipedia, and I don’t think I would have purchased even one of those games back in the day. Besides that fact that this was a $700.00 system when it was released. That’s a lot of mowed lawns and shoveled driveways just to get a disappointing product. Sure, Neo-Geo was also a big ticket console, but at least it had good fighters, platformers, brawlers and shmup games.
