A table based on Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope has the classic nature of the original film dialed in just about perfectly. Whether it's Princess Leia hiding behind safe cover or Luke Skywalker testing his skills on a lightsaber simulator, this table has items that are sure to eschew all kinds of nostalgia. This table has impeccable design too, making it easy to line up combo shots and rack up those high scores. The outlanes can be a little unfair at times (they needed to be a bit wider to give players a better chance), but this is still a solid offering. Finally, there's the most curious table of the pack, Masters of the Force. This is a table that doesn't look so appealing at first with a small playfield, but then you begin to see it open up with new shots you take. It's really quite cool, as you can either shoot for the good side of the Force (Yoda) or bad (Palpatine). It has something to offer to everyone as a result, and the more you play, the more you'll find. On top of the splendid visual and audio design, Heroes Within comes with full leaderboard support, as well as unlockable Trophies and Achievements, depending on your version. Zen Studios continues to have a great scoring system in place here, where you can combine scores for Team points while, at the same time, competing to be the top dog. It's sad that we won't see anymore Star Wars Pinball tables after this (for now, anyway), as Zen Studios has done some tremendous work on this ten-pack. Heroes Within has managed to save the best for last, with tables that will ring up old memories as you try to leave your mark in pinball history. Actually, make that do--there is no try. Final Score: 8 out of 10.
Star Wars: Droids is easily one of the better tables
