Quick thoughts on Marvel Pinball 3D for the Nintendo 3DS

Marvel Pinball 3D recently released on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Here are my thoughts on the game so far.

This next set of tables Zen Studios has released on the eShop brings four familiar pinball tables from the Marvel Pinball series. The Iron Man, Blade, Fantastic Four and Captain America tables from the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions have been shrunk down for the Nintendo handheld.

The top screen is where the gameplay's at and the bottom screen represents the dot matrix display. Since the table is jam-packed on one screen, it's hard to see what's going on if you use a zoomed-out view. I stuck with a closer one.

The use of 3D is great, and this is one of the few games where I like having it constantly on. The game is much clearer and it's easier to follow the pinball, especially when a closer view is used.

Each table has their own specific traits that make them fun to play. However, if you already own the console editions, it comes down to how bad you want to play this game on the go.
