Picked up my dracula not too long ago and after I finally worked out all the bugs, I can say wow is this game hard!! Its going to take some time to master but shooting loop after loop to become the loop leader is very fullfilling. Not to mention mist multi ball and being able to get all 3 multi balls going at once!!

Bought one as a project machine. It lives up to the reviews, strong one more game factor, excellent music, very hard. BRUTAL.
First pin i've sold and bought again. It's intense and rewarding when you make the stars align on this game.

"Great Fun!!". After paying a couple more machine of the era, I think I under estimated this machine. I like it more now than when I originally rated this machine. Thumbs up for BSD.

Creepy, Cool sounds from the movie. Pin is the toughest I have in my collection. Constantly kicks my ass with the those lightning flippers. When you get the left ramp shot going it's very satisfying. MIST mulitball is one of the best features Williams ever came up with. Hearing 30 millllllllion is very gratifying this is a machine that I sold and re-bought as I regretted the decision almost immediately. Will never leave my collection again...

Lots of cool multiball features, cabinet is cool! Ramps are very functional and don't get in the way. Definately a keeper!

Really cool looking game, very fun multiballs. Love the mist multiball, a little something different that is fun to see. This game HAS to be LED to make it shine and think it looks 10x better with additional/alternative lighting

This game is sick.
When you get those stacked Multiballs going, you'll get a good sweat on and the hear rate pumping.
The music really sets the mood.
Children beware.. they will probably scream bloody murder when you hit those Castle Jackpots. :)

I have owned this pin for a while and it is great fun. It is not easy, stacking multiballs is challenging but very rewarding when the machine is cranking out 20 million dollar hits! The mist multiball is a unique feature and the green mist adds to the effect. Good license with actor's voices from the movie. The playfield art is just okay and the towns, castle are a bit cheap. But overall, it's a fun game that has a lot of attraction for people who wander in the gameroom. Might trade mine one day.....

Waited until over 100 games played. This is a simple ruleset but super fast, great sounds and very addictive. Trying to get multiballs, let alone stack them, keeps me coming back. This is what pinball is about for me, that 'one more game' feeling. Brutal at times but that occasional great game feels so good! Prefer it to many of the A listers.

Dracula is a good difficult game. I don't know how long it would last in a 3 or 4 game collection. I had one...........I do miss it.

BSD is a great game! It will punish you for not making shots. It keeps you coming back for more.

Owned this game for a very long time. Fun to play. An absolute favorite of guests. Every pinball fan should have one for a year.

BSD is another game that I think is good but no great. It's fun and will give you your pinball fix but aside from attempting to stack the multis it's fairly one dimensional. Shoot the left ramp. Doesn't mean it's not fun but there are quite a few machines I think should rank higher in the top 100.

This game gets better the more you play it and the more you understand the rules.
Stacking multi-balls is really fun.

Set up difficult with lightning flippers, I have a love/hate relationship with this game (I love how much it makes me hate it). The sounds on this game, especially the Castle jackpot screams, still make the hair on the back of my neck stand up. "Mist Multiball" is one of, if not, *the* coolest multiball starts in all of pinball. Make sure you set the video mode to "Extra Hard" for maximum killing enjoyment. Despite being based on a subpar movie theme, Dracula's gameplay keeps me coming back for more.

I'm not a fan of the theme and artwork, but it plays pretty good, including multi-ball. Some may not like it at first, but game play can grow on you w/ time. This is a game I would play a few games when seeing it out on location.

The first pin that I owned twice. BSD rocks!!! It's not deep at all, but it's brutally difficult if you don't hit your shots, and still maddening even in those ever-so-rare moments when you do. Stacking the multiballs for the "30 milllllllllllion" callout is one of the most satisfying feats in all of pinball. The "mist multiball' is hands-down the best 2-ball multiball ever (and you can stack it all the way up to 4 balls if you play your cards right). Bang-for-buck: the best DMD-era game out there, and one of the most addictive games ever made. This is an A-list-caliber game that can be had for B-list money. "It is a beast: a monster."

B movie, A rated pin. Really good progressive multiball options, great sound and looks fantastic with LED's. The pin has challenging game play that keeps you comming back for more. The only take away is the L-bolt fillpers are a tad bit shorter than regular flippers and take a little bit getting use too.

Good overall game. A bit dark, but the machine is true to the movie. Great multi-ball modes. Mist multi ball is unique. I like the way the game scores and video mode is terrific. There are some small things / details in this game that keeps you coming back for more.

BSD is a very difficult game and one that takes some getting used to. I dont care for the playfield lighting much I find it to be very dark. I guess that goes with the theme somewhat but if you have a dark space the lower playfield can be hard to see. The game is very fast with lightning flippers and has some challenging shots. The mist multiball is one of the best gimmicks in any game and easily the best multiball start shot in any game. It has a good video mode and generally a straight forward rule set.

Huge fan of the movie, but actually wasn't blown away by this game at first, but I've come to appreciate it for the great player it is. Gets my vote for most frustrating game, especially when equipped with lightning flippers, not uncommon to kill it once then have it hand you your a##. The color palette is strange, but very effective, just not what I would have chosen based on the movie.

BSD is one of the best bang for the buck pins out there. This pin really has a strong draw for "just one more game"!

This is not an easy pin. Missed shots are usually punished with drains. Ball times are fairly short.

Stack all 3 multi-balls for the ultimate rush, as the sound effects really get your adrenaline pumping.

The playfield layout is about as basic as it gets, but it all works together very well. This is a shooters pin.

One of the best horror themed games, and a very challenging one. For getting big scores you'll need to get all three multiballs running at the same time. Mist ball flying across the playfield is a really neat feature.
