“Not a big fan....”

“Great 80's pin. Very fast and fun to play. Great theme with cool shots. The ramp jump is an awesome feature. I love the sound clips in this pin. Great sound and gorgeous back glass. I really like the sound of this game. Very cool non DMD pin”

  • “Fun and Fast, big Robocop fan so that helps. Not a deep game but great for a quick play or two player action.”

  • Hazoff has owned this game in the past.

  • “Themed well, but not the best game out there. I liked it for one or two plays, but couldn't do more than that.”

    “Love this game, I've recently starting collecting again and have been focusing on quick thrill based pins with a theme that means something too me. I 've had all the top B/W and sold them as once I completed the game I lost interest. Sticking with new Sterns and old fast 80's pins. Robocop was big for me as a kid and I'm loving this pin. GREAT”

    “I was expecting tis to be a horrible table, this is not the case. I feel like this is way under rated
    because the low rub of tables”

  • “Robocop was very, very, OK. Not to great, not too bad. Fun for the time I was playing, but it didn't WOW me at all.”

    “Robocop is a simple and straightforward game.

    The Pros:
    The PF layout is good. The ramp within the ramp is a novel idea that works well. The rules are very simple, but ripping spinners and a ramp with a jump in it is always a hoot!

    The Cons:
    Artwork is not K.O'C's best. Looks like another rush job. The game can be rather easy to play. I wish the game had more of the darker humor of the movie.

    The Takeaway:
    A good back to basics pinball game. Make it steep, tighten the tile, open up the right outlane and have at it! This deck is fun.”

    “A pinball with robocop theme must be better than this...”

    “Bought this as a project, and boy, it needed a LOT of work. So As I fixed this and that, more elements of the game came to light. Now she's 100% and I love it. This IS a bit of a simple game but its alot of fun AND it will definately keep you on your toes...because its F.A.S.T.
    Great light show, one of the best. Appropriate sound, Jump ramp is a great shot. I have a few games in my collection and lately this one seems to get turned on and played first. And not by just me.
    Slingshot and center plastics are always broken...someone should repro those. Some say the flippers are too strong, but you cant go too much weaker with that SSFB or the shots at near the tips of the flippers will sag limply. Want a kick? Play this in a dark room and get ready to be blinded by the light!”

  • “Not the dog people see it for. The ramp is not that easy to shoot and the game tends to be very fast-paced with an extra task to avoid the horribly ball-attractive outlanes.

    The music is excellent for its day & age, its the only machine that has its attract sounds one in my collection.”
