I am on a weekend getaway with my girlfriend this weekend, and on our way today we stopped in Toronto at the playdium store to check it out. They have it in the main entrance as soon as you enter the store.
First thing I noticed is how bad/cheap the cabinet art looks. Second, I gave the playfield a really good looking at. Honestly this thing looks like a complete plastic, sticker cutout POS a really shiny piece, but you can't polish a turd.
Then I pushed the start button.... well I was greated by a bad british accent(I think its supposed to be a roadie or something) That says "ladies and gentlemen the Rolling Stones" REALLY? So I launch the ball and a Rolling Stones tune starts, not too sure which one. Some record spinning on the DMD. Some lights flashing, the usual stuff.
Shots were really easy, Nothing really too interesting to look at and the Mick plastic jumping back and forth is terrible. It called out some shots, but honestly I really didn't want to keep playing. But I did, It is very, very simular to any older machine the ramps really do nothing for gameplay (AT ALL) the main goal is just to shoot for the lot arrows to try to get an encore performance and increase the multiplier. I don't know if it was me but it seemed like there was no real ball lock for a multiball.
Bad annoying voices, sounds terrible. Tunes ok if you like the stones, DMD AWFUL!!!!
Playfield layout and shots LAME! Artwork WORST EVER, WORST EVER.
The only thing I can say is that I played my first ball (for awhile actually) then After it drained down the right side. I didn't want to keep playing, it was that bad, and not fun or interesting enough to keep me wanting to play. I played out the rest of my game dissatisfied and disappointed. I was hoping for some cool DMD effects maybe some strange multiball jackpot combo's something like that. But nothing really happened, it seems like a throwback to older machines, possibly a not so good system 11. That in itself not being a bad thing but... this is 2011.
So honestly this thing should be burried like the Stones are... Oh wait the are still alive? They sure don't look it, and this pin isn't gonna help their image or improve record sales or pinball sales for that matter.
I might give it another shot if I see it on route somewhere, someday,.... NAH no I wont!!! I honestly want to forget this thing exists.
After, I actually ran to play 24. (seriously)LOL It makes other bad pins look fantastic by comparison.
