No good if you hate the music, but otherwise fantastic. 12 full length songs each with their own lighting and scoring give this game endless variety and freshness. it's loud, fast and sometimes brutal, but definitely has the 'just one more gane' factor. A modern classic.

I don’t know the rules and I can’t figure them out. This is ruining the game for me, which otherwise seems awesome! I love the music, the artwork and playfield are awesome, I like the shots, I just can’t get any points! I know this is an easy fix, I just need to take 10 min to read them, but as of now I find this game very frustrating and I can’t enjoy it. I call this the Getaway effect.

Awesome game. It doesn't get any better then a pinball machine integrated with ACDC music a Steve Richie layout and code by Lyman Sheats. This game is a masterpiece!

I have now been enjoying my Premium VE for several months and feel ready to rate it. A terrific game with awesome shots and deep innovative rule set. Each song presents a new challenge of how to play the game. It really adds to the overall experience of the game. Great lighting and music add to the experience. Love it! An all-time great - period, end of discussion...

Playing this fast and fun playfield to this soundtrack of AC/DC songs kicks @s$. Ramps, cannon, and bell are satisfying shots. Mini "hell" playfield under the main playfield is great. A little heavy on multiballs, but I'll take that kind of complaint all day over others.

I'm on the fence between this and metallic a.... I keep going back and forth as I own both and love pinball with this music.
There is actually more to the modes as some people think and u can incorporate so.e serious strategies. Sub is a must.
Looks great also.

I was after this game for ages, and when I finally got one I was really excited to get it home and set up to play. unfortunately it then left my collection in just a few short months, as despite its awesome sound and light show, despite the great deep rules, the clangy bell, the lower Hell playfield, and the exciting risk/reward juggling act when you decide to go for a song jackpot or wait to get it higher and multiplied ..... despite all this, the game just wasn't FUN enough.

I like games with humour, with tongue in cheek, with jokes and funny faces and all that stuff, ACDC is just too damn serious for me. and for that reason, i'm out.

The first 5 games I could not figure this machine out, mainly the cannon. The next 5 games I still had only had 2 extra balls and 4 games total with any multi-balls. This game is tough in a great way!

This machine is a real piece of art, just beautiful and detailed to look at, and play.

The callouts are brutal or nice, depends on how you do. The music is awesome, the lights and everything is just awesome.

Fantastic game! The song selections are superb! Super high quality and I would wager a lot of r&d, time and money went into making these. My Luci has a very expensive feel to it. Cabinet and backglass art is... uh, quite hot. A perfect 10 in fact I'll say. I love the pf. A lot going on. Band call outs each time downing the 3 TNT targets - Oy! The train whislte blowin' wooo-woo! each left ramp hit! A ramp made triggering a cannon to fire! Wow, tons o' fun to be had here! Top bumpers really crack, loud like thunder. Game sounds and looks just dynamite. I really do like that lower pf, adds to it and in no way detracts. It's just one more thing to look forward to and lick your chops about trying to do (let's see how many times I can go 'round and round this time)! Excellent flow and although challenging for me such that I wish I could keep a ball in play longer that just lends to it being so much fun that I really hate it when it drains. It's ACDC, it's pinball, it's R'N R - it's rockin'! What's not to like?
It would truly take concrete shoes, neckties, cyanide, or high voltage to get this game outta me ol' mancave coin and laundry! #Keeper4ever

Love the game, cant really warrant the added money for the moving bell and crossover ramp. No biggy,.. Not a fan of under playfields.. The ModFather...

The under playfield is too gimmicky. The cannon toy is neat, as is the bell ringer. Definitely has a lot of toys to play with. Not super fun though and hard to trap the ball.

Fist game I ever played in a tourney and the first time I saw a lower play field. Blew my mind initially.

After putting some time on mine I can rate better. Fantastic game with great lighting and code. It is insanely fast and kicks my butt more often than not. It just got really old really quick.

Great game with lots to do. I can't stand the pro version but premium is a top 10 game.

A game truly built for fans. Even people who aren't can enjoy the variable gameplay and fun toys. Shooting the cannon, banging the bell all provide fun feedback. The sunken mini-playfield really adds to the game. I won't even bother playing the Pro version since it lacks it.

This is an all-time favorite that I hope to own someday. A game where each song has it's own rules, if you like AC/DC music and pinball this is a must-have. The cannon feature is awesome. The sunken playfield is awesome. The shaker hits at just the right times. Fantastic.

What a wonderful machine. I love the toys especially the bell. The lower playfield is a nice touch.

Lots of toys, good sounds. Good layout. Theme just doesn't do it for me

This is my #5 Pick. I like playing this on the table and in the Stern Pinball Arcade. Much better on the table in R/L. I blew $6 on it this weekend alone.

I didn't like this game at all when I first played it a pin show. Then I played it again and it started to grow on me. I finally bought one a few months ago and didn't want to rate it until the honeymoon phase was over. I love this game. Its my favorite right now. Just wicked fun to play and the rules are pretty cool.

I found this game to be just boring, as much as i am an acdc fan...will not be able to bring this one in as much as the music wants me to.
