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.

Quickly becoming my favorite game. I prefer the premium but the pro is faster and harder imo. Best lighting and use of color changing leds I've seen.
Such a deep game. I like how you have to make shots to progress. No timed out modes here. Lots of risk/reward shots and lots of different ways/strategies to use while playing.
When I eventually get a premium, it's never going to leave the collection. Love it!
Cabinet is big disappointment and wish the lower playfield was used more/better.

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.

Can't get enough of Luci! What a sexy machine, of my 7 pins guests probably play this one the most. It's fast, light show is amazing, toys are fun. Stern nailed it with this one, you can tell they really put some passion into it. Impossible to be let down by this pin.

Own the Luci version. Beautiful artwork and of course, awesome soundtrack. Couple issues. Cannon is in a bad spot. Can't see the ball going into lane. Misfires often, and can be a drain monster. Rule set is good, and it is fun. Would recommend, but can get really frustrating often.

Holy hell this is a great game. Each song has different objective, and its own set of rules, and the lighting in this is just amazing. Great flow, and a secondary playfield to boot. These music pins are great, and AC/DC is one of the best. Highly recommended.

The Luci Cabinet makes this game one of the best Stern to date. Game play is based on each music mode making it unique and not the same game to which you pick the music. Excellent overall play and with the Luci cabinet good looking.

Good game but over rated in my opinion.

Solid music based table, not quite to the Metallica level of goodness but still a solid shooter with a killer soundtrack.

I have this game for a long time, I never liked it very much. The animation of the band in the upper right corner is just ugly, and why this voice all the time... I will keep it but only because I like AC/DC so much...

I wouldn't buy and don't love this game because of the theme, which bores me, but it plays so well and is both predictable (in a good way) and forgiving (also in a good way) without being easy or floaty.
