Dream Pinball 3D on the DS captures the essence of what pinball game is all about, but never really excels in providing an outstanding game.
The presentation is passable. Graphics is not half bad. They are detailed, albeit messy when panned out. But the camera angles left something to be desired. And it is here that it fails to impress. All different views are essential the same, some are better than others. Making full use of the screen estate would make this game much more playable.
The sound is crisp and fitting to each of the six tables. However, great sound alone does not make a great game. The mechanics overall is acceptable. The different behavior of different type of balls is certainly interesting.
