Werewolves, vampires and goblins, oh my! These are just a few of the monsters you’ll encounter in Pinball FX 2‘s new table, Epic Quest. In this new table we take a knight on his journey against evil to rescue his kidnapped princess. What separates this new installment from other tables is the addition of RPG-like elements. The adventure carries on from game to game, giving you the ability to level up your character, pick armor and even your weapon. It this enough to make pinball feel fresh and revitalized, or will this be another one of those things that should have never been?

The Paranormal table for Pinball FX 2 was produced by Zen Studios. It was released October 26, 2011 for 0 MSP. The promotion ended November 2, 2011, and it now retails for 240 MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.
Paranormal is in truth not exactly a new table. It’s been available for Zen Pinball on the PlayStation 3 for some time. The table may be showing its age, but it still has a lot to offer. The theme of the table is the investigation of paranormal activities in the area. Things like the Loch Ness Monster and the Jersey Devil make appearances amongst others. It’s one of the more complicated tables out there, but doesn’t play as smoothly as others. As solid as it is, it will struggle to gain traction with players as the more recently developed tables are so much better.
Sorcerer’s Lair for Pinball FX 2 was developed by Zen Studios and retails for 240 MSP. It was released on October 12, 2011. A copy of the table was provided for review purposes.
The latest installation into the Pinball FX 2 series is none other than Sorcerer’s Lair. This table was released some time ago on the PlayStation 3 and is finally making its way to Xbox Live. Despite the fact that this table is a retread of an older release it stands tall as another excellent example of Zen Studios craftsmanship in the realm of pinball.
This is one of the first tables in some time to be released without a link to some sort of established IP. This makes its success all the more impressive because the lack of familiarity with the theme doesn’t slow it down at all. Sorcerer’s Lair is another medium length table that plays relatively fast. High scores are definitely possible on this very fun table.
The gang at Zen Studios know how to take care of their fans. They are constantly releasing new downloadable tables for Pinball FX2. We’ve seen our share of Marvel-themed tables recently, but Zen has something different up their sleeve this time around. On October 12 players can download the Sorcerer’s Lair table, one that used to be a PS3 Zen Pinball exclusive. We had previously reported that both Sorcerer’s Lair and Paranormal would be coming to Xbox 360 owners, but now we’ve got a firm date for one of them. Hit the jump for the full press release and additional screenshots.
