From Harleys to Schwarzenegger

Stern Pinball Arcade had a great first batch of tables yet here are another five to test your flipper fingers. That being said, I hope we start to see some fresh tables soon since most of these were already released in the original Pinball Arcade.

Time to rev your engine and annoy the neighbours

Harley-Davidson (Third Edition)

As the last table ever produced by Sega Pinball, Harley-Davidson went through three iterations and the one featured here is the latest version from 2004. It's very satisfying whenever you do well and hear the realistic engine sounds as a result. You can pop wheelies as well that lock the balls for future use. They really thought of everything.

Harley-Davidson (Third Edition) is also available as part of Pinball Arcade Season 1.

At least you won't lose as much money at a virtual pinball casino

High Roller Casino

This one may seem generic at first glance but there are so many modes and scoring opportunities that playing it can be rather addictive. It's surprising that they managed to cram poker, blackjack, a slot machine, craps, and roulette into one table yet they're all here to test your luck. Just don't expect any payout as this is a virtual pinball table after all...

High Roller Casino is also available as part of Pinball Arcade Season 3.

This table is as American as a good old Ford

Mustang (Premium "Boss")

Speaking of revving your engine, here's another vehicle-based table. This was released in 2014 to celebrate the Ford Mustang's 50th anniversary and features the voice of racing driver Tanner Foust. On top of that, it includes a soundtrack of licensed hits from the past five decades. When it comes to pinball, this table provides a classy experience comparable to driving a Mustang itself.

As if there weren't enough tables based on bad movies already...

Last Action Hero

The first table pack included three movie-based tables yet poor Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn't in any of them. Thankfully, he finally makes an appearance here. It wasn't the best film but the table is fully featured with loads of components such as magnets and an automatic plunger. There's nothing like watching the little crane carry the ball around the board.

Last Action Hero is also available as part of Pinball Arcade Season 5.

Softly, deftly, pinball shall caress you

Phantom of the Opera

Being based on the early 1900s novel and not Andrew Lloyd Webber's famous musical, this one provides a simple old-school approach to pinball. There are no goals and all you do is try to score as high as possible yet there's enough complexity to keep it interesting. For example, you can unmask the Phantom but I don't know if you would want to; he is quite hideous.

Phantom of the Opera is also available as part of Pinball Arcade Season 4.
