Marvel Pinball: Civil War Review

Combining two ridiculously different things into a new, better and more delicious product isn’t a common nowadays. In games, developers tend to stick with the tried and true formulas, rarely venturing outside their comfort zone. When they do, though, we usually get the best games. For instance, in the case of Zen Studios, the combination of two unassuming concepts like pinball and storytelling results in an unique twist to what could be considered a relic of the past.

For those unfamiliar with Persona 4, the game goes through one year of a normal high school student (you). Moving to the sleepy, rural town of Inaba to live with your uncle and cousin, your arrival is shadowed by the shocking and grisly murder of an announcer woman recently outed for an...
