Zen Studios has to stumble at some point on their pinball tables right? I can safely assure you however, that their latest licensed set of tables does not indicate they have any plans on messing up what they’ve perfected just yet. When I think of video pinball, the amazingly detailed and over the top Zen tables are the ones I think of, and I now have four more tables to eat up my time thanks to the Avenger Chronicles which comes out today June 19 on PSN, and June 20 on Xbox Live Arcade. As with their other tables these seamlessly integrate into the platform of your choice complete with the outstanding leaderboard integration, multiplayer gaming and multiple modes of play that we all expect. Rather than focus on a single character per table however, the four tables in the Avenger Chronicles are more story based, and feature our Avengers in action.
Score: 9: Yet Again Zen Studios delivers some of the best video pinball tables they’ve produced. Changing up from character based to more cohesive story based didn’t cause them to miss a beat. Fast, tricky and gorgeous tables are again the norm here – make sure you get your friends list to buy these as well, as the leaderboard integration still remains one of the best implementations on the console.
