Of the games in my collection WOZ is my least favorite, and honestly, it isn't even close. As for my wife - it is her favorite, and honestly, it isn't even close. I guess that proves that to each their own. What can't be debated is that this game looks fantastic. The RGB lights and LCD screen give it a very unique and cool look.

A run down on my hit list.... I love the look, lighting, artwork, display, and I am ok on the theme (although it is very confusing), however I just don't care for the game. It has a few bad angles which seem to always pop up. I guess I should study the rules a little deeper, but I rarely know what my objective is... I can't lookup at the uber impressive LCD without fearing to lose my ball. I also find the play field a little to congested with Dorothy's house taking up way too much room. I guess I could be nit-picking!

My wife (on the other hand) loves the integration of the RGB's she finds the lighting to be much easier on her eyes and less headache inducing. For whatever reason... she just really likes the game.

This is a pretty amazing game. While i cannot say that i am a huge Wizard of Oz movie fan, i am a huge fan of this machine. It feels and plays so solidly. Much more so than older machines i have had and even new stern machines.

There is so much to it, it can feel a bit overwhelming at first, but after a half a dozen games, and a lesson from someone much more skilled than myself, i started to understand the flow and rules of the machine.

I ultimately bought one and it will be delivered next week, and i cannot wait. This is a machine that i feel could be fun to play for many years to come and continually find something new or different buried deep in the code and field.

Awesome machine and one that will be part of my collection for a long time to come.

I wish I could afford this. This is the most difficult and fun pinball game I have ever played. I will do just about anything for this game. Send me offers

I'll probably never own this game. And this game has way too much in it, for an average player like me to experience in ten or twelve plays in an arcade or a friend's home. The game itself is beautiful and attractive enough. The theme is...well, disappointing. The game is a bit overwhelming for someone who can't experience it in a home environment over the course of a long period. This is great for people who own the game, not so much for me. I'm not totally sold on the backbox screen next. I don't find myself using the information on it any more than I do a DMD, and again, I have no idea what to look at when I do look at it.

Just a fantastic game with 5 flippers and giant screen and toys everywhere how do you not enjoy this game. Would love to see a car theme Jersey Jack Pinball! I would recommend this game and like to own it.

Beautiful. Played a few games on location. It's very challenging. Loved everything about it. The lighting effects are incredible. Ball did tend to get stuck on a soft plunge under the right upper play field and it was hard to get it free without tilting. Only downside is the price.

Finally bought one. JJP do make quality machines. This is going to be a keeper. Such a work of art.

Well done all who work at JJP..Keep going with the updates too :-)

I liked this game more than I thought I would. The magnets and two upper play fields were great. I kept going back to this machine.

Playfield design is strong but suffers due to State Fair balloon drain. Also, "There's No Place Like Home", is a lot to ask compared to "Toto Escapes".

We play it out on location and often encounter machines needing repair. We're unsure of the reasons.

Saw it..... played it in the wild wherever I found it.... looked for one for a year.... bought one.... This is far and away the all around best pinball machine I've ever seen. They did their homework, and maybe saved pinball.

The light show is absolutely fantastic. It's so good that I would play it even if the gameplay was terrible, just to see the light show. Speaking of gameplay: it's so-so. Fun at first, but a little confusing. The flipper setup is really strange and takes a while to get used to. It's somewhat backwards and counter-intuitive. I love the left outlane game though, really cool idea. I wish the cabinet art was hand drawn instead of photograph based.

Love the game, can't stop playing it! In a dark setting the lighting can be a little annoying making it hard to see the ball. Not sure if it's just me as I have a hard time seeing in low light. I don't think this is ever going to leave my house. I haven't played pinball since the 1990s and this caught my attention. Seeing it online vs live is totally different. As soon as I saw it live I had to have it. Was a little afraid I might get board with it but there is so much going on you want to keep playing. I do have a little hum in the speakers, maybe some EMI, not sure.

I'm editing my rating on the game after 3 months of playing. I'm not changing it only have to update due to playability . I still love this game and the different challenges it provides keeps me coming back for more!

What a great machine...so much fun for all ages. Cool rule set, simple to pick up but deep enough for advanced players and the LCD adds major WOW factor. Lots of action and fun mini games keep you coming back for more. A little pricey but overall worth it!

Beautiful machine. Great code. Lots of fun. Theme is polarising, but the gameplay rises above that.

My favorite game. This classic will never leave my collection. The theme is great and the call-outs are funny. I love the upper playfields and the difficulty will keep home owners busy for a long time. I could see it being less desirable on location but in the home it is awesome and a favorite in my basement arcade.

You have to give JJP credit. They designed and built a quality machine on their first attempt in the pinball market. I wish the game played as good as it looks, though. It's a little clunky, but it does fit the theme. More of a stop and go layout, with some very interesting shots. When it was first released I found myself playing it as much as I could. Problems on location were abundant at the beginning, but now most if not all have been rectified. Some of the most clever toys and features in a modern pinball machine and the lighting effects are some of the best I've ever seen. It's a great game that stands out from the crowd.

As the first pinball machine would not be bad idea but still there is much to improve before reaching the level of conocorrenza, playing came out so many flaws that at first glance do not see

When this game came out, I attacked Jack and called him a fool for making a theme like WOZ.........Well I couldn't have been more wrong or in this case more of a fool. WOZ is a pinball masterpiece and is one of the greatest games of all time. The theme integration is top notch, along with the art package and overall fun of the game. I recently saw the broadway show Wicked, which prompted me to buy the game. After seeing that show, I was reminded how timeless the WOZ theme really is. One last note, my girlfriend hasn't played pinball in 4 years, but I am happy to say we have been playing WOZ every night after dinner........That alone is worth the price of gold to me!

The theme is well done and the machine is solidly built. A very good attempt at pushing the envelope. Only real complaint is the light board problems on early games and that the flipper buttons can be hard to push to activate the upper flippers. A lot going on here but the theme is well done and it's suitable for all ages. The light show is fantastic.
