I will be reviewing pinball mania a game that deseves better ratings than it gets.

gameplay: This is one very fun pinball game that is not too hard and not too easy and although i hated pinball i bought pinball mania anyways just to try it out and i loved it. It is an accurate pinball simulator that is a little over done but not too over done which i really like. 10/10

graphics: This game has very good graphics for it's time.10/10

sound: I like the pinball sounds and i think this game makes the pinball sounds very accurately which is a thing i really like. The game has sounds which are not over done.10/10

compatibility: This is where everything goes downhill certain copies of the game mess up your computer and to fix it i had to go to the companies website and they said it was a corupted file and told me to remove the corrupted file and change some of my display options and then the problem dissapeared but how in the world did they get a corrupted file and how come the file is only corrupted on some copies of the game.0/10

replayibility: This game like all other pinball games get repeatitive after a while but you will stll play the game quite a bit.7/10

overall:The only thing bringing down the score is the games replayibility and of course the compatibility annd the corrupted file. 8.5

er... an ok review, but with a minor correction:

(10+10+10+0+7)/5=7.4 not 8.5 Sarcastic

You don't retain your objectivity when you do that, though.
Well, that, and you're way too nice with your scoring.

Yeah, plus that if you want to be fair, the final score must be the average of the Video/Sound/etc. scores!

Otherwise, you're no longer objective. Sarcastic

Reviews are opinnions and that's why subjectives. Therefore scorin' doesn't need to be an avarage.

That may be true, but they usually are anyway.

I Happy LOVE Happy PINBALL games. To me a DOS game [like many pinball games] are those that can be played in all dos OR a combination of WINDOWS / DOS but they can not be WINDOWS ONLY GAMES. [If you attempt to run the game and get to see WARNING: This game can only be played using WINDOWS message then it's not a DOS game.
THUS any DOS game that was created up to around 2005 [XP WINDOW DAYS] can most likely be played using XP or DOS
