“It's a great fun pinball , I like the cannon reminds me a lot of the batman pinball . I love Star Wars .....”

“A game that beats the Data East version in my opinion. Although it does have the benefit of advances in tech since the last one was made.
The 3d backglass is cool. The music is obviously great.
The best bit about the table though is the multiball start. The cannon grabbing the ball then the x wing firing it at the tie fighter. A great bit of engineering.
Lots of fun to play.”

  • “I love this game. I find myself playing it over & over again. So I guess that has to mean something.. ;-)”

  • “Star Wars Trilogy suffers from the same lack of development and playtesting that plagues Sega pinball games.

    The Pros:
    A pretty cool layout with variable opeingings into the tie fighter hole with the drop targets being able to drop/pop as programmed. There are shots to be made on this table. the FORCE- C and E targets in particular require sniper skills. The VUK at is not an easy shot either. I like the x-wing cannon shooting into the tiefighter hole. It makes me say "Stay on target..." The ramp with the diverter in it is nicely done. The X-wing shooter to the Tie Fighter is well done.

    The Cons:
    The Han/Cartman hole is... I don't know, I have never liked this shot on any Premier/DE/Sega/Stern deck. Let's not forget the rules that make you want to forget that you want to play this game. Star Wars trivia is a nice novelty, that gets old before you know it. The art package is crowded and too busy to to be anything other than a distraction to playing this game. A perfect example of design by a marketing committee.

    The Takeaway:
    A great game for the Star Wars kids. A real player will not have his interest held for long. It's a shame, really...”

  • “This is a nice playing pinball, very fast! It has 2 hard shots and the rest are easier. I can play this pinball and enjoy the game flow and not get uptight. It keeps me coming back again and again. In my opinion it does a good job in playing through the Star Wars first 3 movies. I always loved these movies as a kid and still love them today. This is a great pinball to put in your collection.”

  • “Fun game. Few hard shots (atleast for me) drop hole for han solo interesting, as i cant hit it ever. but fun game and i put it on my list for the future.”

    “Not being a fan of the theme, this game has a tough time impressing me... not bad to play though, and the DT's make it fun for me, but the theme and music is just too much for me to bear to make me want to play it!”

  • “Like the theme not the best of games.”

  • “Better than the Data East Star Wars! Which is not saying much :(”

    “What's not to love - it's Star Wars!! The X Wing shot is a great treat and the gameplay is smooth.”

  • teachp8 has owned this game in the past.

  • “Fans of Star Wars will love this game's feel, although it is a bit simple and there aren't a lot of shots. The left ramp is an easy hit and I just found myself hitting it in loops and starting multiball over and over...”

    “Good theme. The Xwing Cannon shot is cool. Decent, fun game but not one of my favorites.”
