No special features distinguish WildSnake Pinball: Soccer from classic arcade pinball. The visuals are unexceptional, although they are notably realistic. The interface offers up the traditional controls, but configuring them is not necessarily straightforward, especially if you don't already have keyboard preferences for trick commands in rapid-fire games. We also couldn't nail down how to use two keys to control blocks, and nudges appeared to be irrelevant. Then again, they might be useful in the full version of the game; the trial version ends during the first round in both Championship and Versus modes. Overall, however, the game is a solid replica of the real thing and could be a brilliant trainer, especially if you use a joystick.
