I say, it's luck and skill and joyous thrills.
I give you... the Good and the Bad and the Conclusion:
+ Easy learning curve
+ Simple, but fantasticly fun
+ Suits all ages
+ Fun cartoony graphics
+ Intro theme song
+ Hours of gameplay
- If I have to say something, doesn't add that much extra to the original version
All you need is your left mouse button and some eye to see where the trail of ball would go... or just plain luck. The times I lost in two player game when a friend hits a jackpot with his eyes closed. It's almost like poker in my head. You need certain strategy and experience to see ahead, but luck will play a big part here too. Every level can be very different and surprising to you. The different Masters (which you unlock during campaing) and their special abilities will also add nice variety to the game.
Speaking of levels, you have 55 campaign levels + 75 different challenges varying from "Easy peasy" to "Nearly impossible". The challenges though can be very addictive and add a lot of content to the game.
There is also the Duel mode where you can challenge your buddies for a round. It's great how easy it is for anyone to take a match with you. Often, you even get your... (have to use a synonym) "donkey" handed to you by some lucky shots from the newcomer.
Peggle Deluxe is simply fun for any time of the day, any amount of time, alone or with a friend. If you happen to have those extra 5 minutes while waiting to leave for your yoga class or you have an hour to kill and you just HAVE TO get that 750 000 points challenge done, Peggle will fill that gap for you gladly. Sure you might leave also frustrated since you didn't get anything done good, but hey! That just means you need more practice right?
The amount of playtime depends on just how good you can get!

This reminds me of a pinball game, except that you aim balls at specific targets. There's strategy -- in aiming your ball at certain pins -- yet a constant element of surprise as the ball bounces around in unexpected directions. Different twists are adding gradually so you don't get overwhelmed, and everything is explained well. Then watch out as the "camera" zooms in to capture that last pin explode, and you're rewarded with fireworks and rainbows. This can get seriously addictive. The graphics are cartoon-y and just a little cutesy, but I'm still going to encourage my senior dad to play this, too, for the practice in eye-hand coordination, and just for the fun of it.

This game is just plain fun...What more can I say?!
I can sit and play this game for hours! It's lots of fun, doesn't require intense concentration, so I can play while I'm listening to TV or a radio program. I'm not an expert at arcade games, but I can actually get through some levels and get bonus points.
The sound effects are fantastic and the graphics are cute and very colorful. It says there are 55 levels, but I don't think I've gotten through even 5 yet, so I'll definitely have lots of playtime with this game for some time to come. I can't say how much more difficult the levels get as you advance through the game, but there is definitely skill involved in shooting the balls and deciding which ones to aim for to get the most points.
Win power boosts and extra balls. Replay skill levels. Very entertaining! My daughter told me about this one and it was a definite buy after I tried the trial.

Fun and Addictive
I love this game, and everyone who I know who has had a go on it ends up downloading it and getting addicted to it as well.
Great graphics, easy to learn, fun to play.
Possibly the best game BF has ever had.

Can't get into it..
I bought this a long time ago because I was hooked after playing the demo. But I quickly lost interest. Over the years I have reinstalled it to try again and every time I do, I lose interest after a few mins. I don't know why but it doesn't grab me, I find the gameplay boring after a short while.
The graphics and sound effects are great and it's a humorous and cute game, very well done for what it is. There's a number of imaginative and useful powerups. But that pot sliding back and forth at the bottom is maddening (I keep trying to control it w/ my mouse!) and the way the focus zooms in and out on the last peg makes me seasick.
It's a unique game (others have followed, but this one started it all) and I'm glad it's out there for those who love it! I myself just don't like the type I guess. Aim the ball, drop it, and watch it bounce around.
Still, I recommend it, but try the demo and play the whole hour first, you might get bored (or maybe not)..!
