As a long-time connoisseur of all things Black Knight, I'd describe the Pinball Arcade version as "like you're the first person to ever play this particular table." It's like the owner of the 7-Eleven just got through putting it together.
It is super-fast, for sure, and also a bit bouncy. But, to be fair, Black Knight tables in the real world are often really worn down, with grooves in the shooting lanes, weak flippers, and lethargic bumpers. Play enough of those -- and I've played them all, it feels like -- and anything that approaches the actual 1980 feel can seem like it's joining Han Solo on a hyperspace ride.
It's a great old-school table, though, and it's a good skill table. Shot-making is the key.
