It's just a fun game with a lot of cool features.

The Ripley version is a nice improvement on the original PB standard version. The amount of upgrades and added artwork really add to an already enjoyable machine. I'm hoping the reliability continues to improve. The sound system is great, the music, sounds, and video package are all amazing. Easily one of the best bang for your buck machines available and it's truly unique.

HOH does a great job of integrating the old, terrible horror movies into the gameplay with the video clips and toys. I think they put together a good overall package. My only complaint about the premium is the lower cabinet art not having Elvira on it. After a few weeks the movie clips can get a bit repetitive and there are a lot of SDTM shots that can cause some frustration.

I had fun playing this game with my daughter at a restaurant. It did a good job of using the Scooby Doo assets and it was fun to play. It was hard to tell what area to shoot and where the ball would travel when you couldn't see under the upper playfield. The more I play it the more I like it. The Spooky machines have a different feel but I like their innovative spirit.

Wonderful theme and all the movies and modes are integrated very well. I'm glad it's a widebody machine because there is a lot of things crammed into the cabinet. The video modes are fun and clever, and there are a ton of tasks to accomplish in the game to keep you playing for a long time.

Immersive, fun, fast, and exciting to play. I've always liked the theme and I'm very happy that they successfully integrated all the best parts of the movie. The game is great out of the box but when you add a shaker, hook it to a subwoofer, add the Tron arcade with the active monitor screen, and the interactive undercab lighting, it totally blows you away! It is challenging because it's so fast and has some tight shots, but it is one of the best games in my opinion.

I got this game through a trade and had only played it once or twice in an arcade previously. It is a difficult game and I was a little discouraged at first. Once I moved the drain posts down and set the game to five ball, the game was much more enjoyable. It is fast and unforgiving but I find myself wanting to play it more and more to accomplish all the goals. The music and sounds are amazing, especially the machine gun sounds during certain modes. If you're looking for a fast game with a lot of smooth flowing shots, this one is definitely for you!

I owned an original Gottlieb Spiderman and then I upgraded to the new Stern Spiderman and it gets a lot of play at my house. It has great sound clips from all the movies, several different shots and objectives to shoot for, and the theme is fun for everyone.

It is a fun game, but after a while it can be a little repetitive. It has great music, sound bites, and animations.

Immersive, great use of assets, and the best sound quality out of any new game from out of the box

An all-around masterpiece. Every aspect of this game was well thought-out and implemented.

The layout, fun, and playability of this game is very high! I got to play a few games and I really enjoyed playing it, however, it was hard to rate because I do not like Rush or their music so this is sort of a contradictory rating. Great game, terrible theme...that's the best way I can say it. If someone reskins it, I may buy one!

This game wasn't really on my radar but once I played it, I became a fan. There are numerous hidden shots, naughty callouts, multiballs, and I'm always finding new things the more I play it.

Whether you are a Kiss fan or not, this is one of the most fun games to play. It is fast but enjoyable, one of the best games in my collection.

As a casual player I can say that this game was pleasing to me on many levels. It had enough rules and objectives without being overwhelming and allowing me to focus more on having fun. The detail in the display was amazing, the lighting was mesmerizing, and it felt like a higher quality of build (cabinet, parts, quality control) than the new Stern machines.

A refreshing change from the cookie cutter machines built by the biggest manufacturer that rolls them out in mass. LOV gives you more for your money and it is a high quality build. The gameplay has a few tough shots but it's stays enjoyable for the casual player with tons of features.

It is immersive, addictive, fun, challenging, and has a great layout. It has the best factory sound of any game I've had and the technical support is incredible. It's a great first game effort from Pinball Brothers and I look forward to seeing what they produce in the future.

As a big fan of the movie, I was always interested in the game. The more I played it the more I liked it, especially with the code update. The music, sound clips, and DMD animations are spectacular! There are a lot of different modes and goals to keep the games entertaining for a long time. There are a lot of tight shots which makes the game a little difficult than most.

I played the pro version and it just seemed like a run of the mill, cookie cutter Stern machine. I don't feel like they put the time and effort into the game to make it better, only to push it out with the licence. There are worse games out there but I would only rate this average.

Beautiful game with unique features-zipper flippers, shield of the gods ball save, and timed plunge. Great layout and different than most games but way too hard for me. I would have loved to keep this game but it was very frustrating to play unfortunately.

The artwork is amazing, the play is fun and there are many interesting shots. In my personal experience I loved the game at first but after a few weeks the amount of rules and difficulty wore on me and I lost interest. If you are an expert player and enjoy a large ruleset then this is the game for you! For the casual player like me, I think there are better games out there with more staying power.

It's a very fast shooting game that can be difficult at times with the spinning pizza hurling your ball down the center drain, but ultimately it keeps you involved and wanting to play more. The ninja pizza multiball is one of the best out there and there are many cool shots to make in the game. I enjoy this game way more than I expected to like it.

One of the most frustrating games ever made but it's hard to turn it off. I enjoy the sounds, speech, and difficult shots that challenge me.

This is one of the games I could play for hours and work my way through a multitude of features. I think it's very well designed, has many cool shots and goals to progress through.

One of my favorite Williams games, which there are many. It has a good variety of different shots and goals to accomplish while the music and sounds are very good for 1988. Very fun game!

Probably my favorite Elvira game of them all, mainly because of the 80's nostalgia, music, sounds, speech, and fun theme.

A great theme but I was disappointed with the lack of original movie footage and callouts. It was fun to play for a while but it didn't have the staying power compared to my other machines.

I played this at the Allentown Pinball Show and I was very impressed with the sounds and the battling objectives against the different beasts. I love the original Black Knight and I think they did a great job with the upgrade. The only thing I think could be a little better was the animations on the LCD, other than that, I think it's a fun game.

I'm a fan of the movie and I enjoy playing this game but it does get repetitive after a few games. The many ramp shots and the handles are great features.

One of the all-time great machines for a reason, I never get tired of playing it.

I try not to be negative but out of the many games I've played over the years, this is definitely the worst one. It's very cheaply made and doesn't appeal to me at all. I played it one time at a pinball show.

I've played this machine at shows and arcades and finally bought one for myself. I've had it for a few weeks and the more I play it, the more I love it! There are so many objectives and features that it never gets old. The lighting, HD graphics on the backglass monitor and artwork are incredible, I'd highly recommend it.

One of my all-time favorites. I love the playfield setup, sound effects, and simple rules.

The sound effects and DMD animations are great! There are a lot of different objectives and skill shots that make this game a lot of fun. It's definitely one of my favorite games and I highly recommend it.

One of my all time favorite classic games...great sound effects, speech, beacon light, ramp shots and hideout multiball features.

This is one of the first pinball machines that I've owned and it's always fun to play. It has 2 captive ball shots and a pretty straightforward layout.

I've always been a Spiderman fan since I was a kid so my appeal to the game is more nostalgic. It's a pretty good game but since it is a little older it does move a little slower than most. I'm glad that I have it but I probably play it the least out of all my other pinball machines.

The playfield has many different features to shoot for and there is a 2 ball multiball feature. Although the theme may not appeal to everyone, it is a solid playing game that is fast!

For a game from 1980, I think Black Knight was ahead of it's time. The speech and trademark Williams sounds are excellent. The multiball features, two level playfields and magna-save make this game very unique. It's very interactive with the Black Knight taunting you and fun to play.

This has recently become my favorite game to play. I love the movie quotes, special features, crane, and many skill shots. The shaker motor and police lights on top of the backbox add to the overall experience.
8.232/10

I've had this game for a few months now and I still enjoy playing it. It has a lot of different features that you can shoot for and the music and sound effects compliment the gameplay. It is one of the better 80's Gottlieb machines in my opinion.
9.516/10

I thoroughly enjoy playing this game. The secret agent theme along with the sounds and music add to the game play. It has multi-ball and various targets and bonuses. There is a clever feature where a "hideout" cave pops up and you can shoot the ball inside to have it disappear under the play field. The music and voices get a little repetitive after a while, much like any other game, but overall I would recommend this game to everyone.
