review scores[edit]

The 'respectable' review score needs a citation, also I would question if it is NPOV. 7/10 is a pretty poor score by most video-game review standards.

El Dorado[edit]

If you have a look at the real Gottlieb pinball machine called El Dorado, you'll notice that it's completely different from the one featured in the video game. -- (talk) 17:44, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

There were different versions of El Dorado. You can see the version used in the game here [1] - Indecision (talk) 22:54, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, that's the one. Thanks!-- (talk) 20:48, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Based on 'Pinball Hall of Fame' (obviously)[edit]

Those who know both games can see that Gottlieb Pinball Classics is obviously an extended version of Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection. The latter appears to have been planned as a start of a series of collections from various manufacturers. Possibly the developers went out of money. If someone has more information on this, please write it up here! I think this is a lot more than just a video game. I like think of it as a start to preserve those vintage pinball machines to future generations, for times when spare parts for the real machines will have become so expensive that nobody can afford them. -- (talk) 17:55, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

FYI, Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection was just released by the same developers. - Indecision (talk) 22:49, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
That's great news. Thank you! I can't wait to buy it. Btw. what's the evidence for the PS2 version of Gottlieb Pinball Classics not being developped by Farsight Studios? I watched the credits on both the PS2 and PSP versions and couln't spot a difference. -- (talk) 20:43, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Why has PSP been removed from platforms?[edit]

I have the PSP version so I know it exists...-- (talk) 22:19, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Not the same as Pinball Hall of Fame[edit]

The statement 'In North America, it was published under the title Pinball Hall Of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection.' is not exactly true. PHOF:TGC does not feature all the tables that GPC does. -- (talk) 08:32, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

This has been fixed. ArcAngel (talk) 14:01, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
Could Dickclarkfan1 please explain why he is constantly re-inserting a false statement into the article? Without any comments, this is indistinguishable from vandalism. -- (talk) 09:21, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

There seems to be some confusion.[edit]

Gottlieb Pinball Classics is an expanded release of what was known on the Xbox, PS2, and GameCube in North America as Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection.

When this collection was updated for the Nintendo Wii and PSP, it was released in Europe under the name of Gottlieb Pinball Classics. However, despite North America not getting the Wii release, it did recieve the PSP release with the additions that were done for this collection under the name of the previous console collection, Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection.

Please don't revert these edits because it's vandalism that you guys are doing because you didn't bother to do any research to investigate if he was possibly right and it just came out here under a different name. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:11, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

The game has now been released in North America as 'Pinball Hall Of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection' and it is the same as 'Gottlieb Pinball Classics'. Just like The Williams Collection, they added more tables with each platform release. PHOF:TGC and GPC are the same game, just another case of one game being sold under a different name in Europe. These articles should be merged as they both discuss the same title. (talk) 11:02, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
It's the same game. Game's come out with special editions that have new content in them all the time and also different named depending on the territory they are released, but they don't get their own article; they get their own section. The core game is the same and the two articles should be merged.Kiwisoup (talk) 03:25, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
