    Quoted from Donnyman:

    The ball seems heavier on the digital side. Like the ball rolls down faster then a real one does on the playfield. Just my thoughts

    Maybe this is why nobody agrees (lol), but I think the opposite. I find it too light and floaty. It bounces really easily and ramp shots are seldom rollbacks. The feeling of ball weight and inertia seems like such a simple thing, but it must be really difficult to model.

    I do enjoy playing it, and its a neat tool for learning rules but when you step up to an actual game you've played on Pinball Arcade the feeling is completely different.
