I will revisit this rating if my feelings change as I do with most of my reviews. NO GAME has ever made me this pumped from the first play EVER. Godzilla is a masterpiece. Once you see how the ball can go in soooooooooooooooooo many different lines making for an insane amount of combos you will be blown away. I went to expo to play it so I could be sure I would be keeping my LE or not. It was so cool to see so many people all agreeing and excited about Godzilla. I didn't see anyone not enjoying the gameplay. If your on the fence just order one. Trust me, I have tried most of them.
The pro can absolutely hold its own on pure gameplay, flow and fun. I would be completely happy with the pro.
As far as the LE or Premium go. The Mechs really make it special. I love collapsing the building for multi-ball. I really like hitting Godzilla in the belly! Silly but, true. The light show is fantastic. The game looks incredible. The colors, animations. It just all works.
I feel like were in a special time with Pinball right now. The design teams seem to have found their groove with layouts, lights, sounds and animations all working together for an insanely good immersive experience. How long will the classics remain at the top? I love me some MM and MB but, these new games are where it's at for me.
Stern in particular is crushing it on gameplay.

I've had time on the both the premium and pro layouts. I now own the pro and am very satisfied. This game is pretty incredible as far as a pro goes for play. The flow and amount of shots is addicting. The art and colors are fantastic. Though I am not a comic enthusiast the theme works well and the video use and animations are done well. They really look fantastic. If you decide pro for flow or Premium for mechs and more wire forms you won't be sorry either way.

(updated Nov 2021 and still feel the same) So this game is one of the most underrated games in pin history. I have owned most of the A titles in the past and this game is an amazing blend of old and new. The layout is great though it looks kinda boring in photos. It shoots well with ramp flow and loops that really keep it fast. The lock is awesome and Sterns fix kit for the early builds takes care of that. Mine is fine with the kit installed. My demogorgon works great though, I did remove the spacer beneath it. Yes, I edited and made it a 10. Sorry if you disagree but, I have never owned a more addicting game. STH and EHOH need to be side by side! :)
Now, the UV kit. Absolutely killer! Completely lame that Stern made us buy and install it ourselves. ( I look forward to the day our games arrive with all features and protectors INSTALLED for us). As you install the UV kit you can completely see it was supposed to be there anyway. It is a fantastic feature and just makes the game. The use of projector is fantastic and does way more than I imagined.
The gameplay is thrilling and if you like spooky themes like I do this game creates a spooky vibe like no other.
a fantastic and enthralling experience in pinball. Well done STERN.

EXCELENT pinball here with a fantastic layout. Smooth shots. Theme is always subjective but this game just delivers. So much happening and just a blast to play. I may own one again. Had to sell to fund another though I wished I had given it more time here.

I just had to try to own this game based on the 80's art and cool theme. Decently fun, just could never get into owning the older slow games from the past. Tough I respect them greatly.

Back in the stripped down Stern budget era. Excellent game considering that. I owned the LE and the pro later. If I had a huge collection it would of remained. A fun and fast game with simple layout.

I owned HULK version as it was released. Fun shots with that insane ramp that was so satisfying to hit! Everything else on the game is done well and perfectly fun to play.

I was one of the first to pick AMH up at Spooky. Great first game for them. Excellent theme. Very fun playfield layout. Zero complaints really. Ended up trading it out for another title.

I wanted to really like this game because of the theme. I kept it for a short while because it just didn't pull me in with its slower gameplay. Still a decent game though.

Owned the LE the day it came out. Always have a place for this game if I had unlimited space and funds. I owned one twice. It is a very fun game that I always felt was pretty immersive and good overall package for pinball. The pro is actually fun too!

A very fun game and like many say. It it were only based on the movie vs. the broadway musical. Still, a blast to play with some great use of that 3rd flipper.

I loved it when this game was and underrated gem that could be had for way less coin than others. It still is by todays standards. I always said if this game were called "Bigfoot" and original themed art it would be in the top 10. Excellent game with maybe the most satisfying volcano shot in history! its so fun to hit that shot. Excellent game.

One of my all time favorite games and I owned a beauty I wished I had kept. One of the Funniest games out there PERIOD! The trunk is fun the boney beast ramp adds humor. The leapers are a unique addition. The backglass being part of the game is special. An amazing game from the past. EXCELLENT.

Very cool ball plunge and ramp. Good theming. I like the long shots in this game. I liked it very much but, in the end it didn't hold my attention like the modern games do.

A good example of simple yet, very fun layout. Great sound effects. Ramps are smooth as all get out. The ship is fun to bash. Its just a fun game.

AC/DC rocks. I literally owned this game 3 times. LE, LE. Premium. Everything about it is fantastic. I only wished that it had come with molded toys and less assembled plastics to make up the look of the game. Lower playfield is fun (though it gets dirty kinda easy) and the thrill factor for new players is also amazing. FAST FAST FAST and fun pinball here.

Metallica is a blast to play. I was never a huge fan but some of the songs are great. I owned this game for a bit and never stopped enjoying it just traded it is all. A very fast paced in your face kinda game with some great art and toys. The music makes it even better to just turn rock out some pinball. A really all around excellent pin.

Long ball times for this one. A very fun game especially if your a fan of the series. I kept this game for a while before I sold it. A solid game with so much to do and a very satisfying ring shot. If you like a journey then this is one of your best options.

One of the first pins I bought years ago. Plays well and the ring master is a very catchy toy. In the end, compared to the modern games it just grew old fast. I think it's an amazing game for a larger collection if you'd like to own a true beautiful classic. It is also good for a newb to be welcomed into pinball. It's very cool to see the ringmaster pop up in your early days of pinball playing.

I owned the pro and absolutely loved it. Kinda miss it actually. The theme, music and quirky animations along with the humor really make this pin a gem to own. I tend to like the spooky themes though so I sold it to fund another.
I could easily own one again. DP is fantastic pinball.

Not much love for the Munsters on here. I pondered buying this when it first arrived. I wasn't buying pins at the time and passed. Last month I finally bought a LE and I am glad that I did. Along with the topper this game is pretty cool. It may not be perfect but, I tend to ask myself if it is fun to shoot and does the theme pull you in enough to own it at home. Growing up watching the show I have to say that the theme is really good for pinball and it works. I really like the ramps. I like the Herman bash toy with the magnet and the sound effects (not as boring as I imagined). The art is perfection on all 4 versions of the game. The laboratory is more fun that I thought too and you can really build some points down there. The call outs are good along with the use of the show clips. Draculas drag car is cool. The visuals are great especially along with the amazing light show. I think this game is a tad underrated and if the rumored last code update is to come true I will then re-evaluate my rating. The code isn't the best ever nor the worst either. If you like the theme then you will probably like the game and it can be had for a GREAT value all over right now. Don't listen to others. Play it for yourself. It's more fun than they say and their is a rumor of one last code update coming? Maybe then Munsters will gain some more love.

Excellent theme. Fun to play. Silky smooth ramps. The trunk is fun to shoot. I owned a beautiful example but, in the end it was not a keep for me. The music and sounds are kinda repetitive. A remake with updates could be cool?

Super fun game to play. I bought one the minute I played it at expo years ago. I could easily have kept it forever had I had the space/budget for all the games I ever liked. The flow of this machine is mind boggling and the shots just feel good. A little repetitive shooting sandman but, all in all it's pure fun to play.

I had one of the first WOZ delivered. It is a very good pin. The theme may not be for everyone but, nobody can't deny how immersive and entertaining the game is. Wether you're a fan of the movie or not it's a great game. The game is so deep with so many modes. I love the spinning house. I mean looping the ball around the house to get it to spin is classic! The monkey is cool. The castle is very fun to shoot too. The multi-ball intros are excellent and JJP games shine with audio quality and video. The game is work to play and may not be the best for a quick game but, I always enjoyed. it. I would recommend it for the home for sure.

Owned the LE on day one and the pro later. This has to be the best example that it's not always about toys. The disc is an excellent toy for sure but, the layout and that 3 rd flipper just make it shine. The LE lighting of coarse is incredible. The way the lights change with the modes and music is just perfect. I hope they vault this title. I miss owning this one.

The castle! Who can say it isn't amazing to destroy the castle! The game is just a blast to play and always will be. I owned one for a while back when they were insanely priced. We're fortunate to have options now to own this title a little easier. The humor, the call-outs and easy to follow rules just make it fun for everyone. Some of my favorite flowing ramps of any game too.

Always fun shooting at that UFO! The humor is great. The game play is fast and fun. I owned one for a while and could again maybe. Absolutely one of the best pins ever. It is tough for me to give the older games super high marks on every category now that modern games have stepped up the audio/video so much. It's a great time for pinball! That's why I came back to it. again. :)

Still the king of the widebody IMO. I owned one 2 different times and loved it very much. The shots, the 4 flippers. the mini playfield is fun. It's a very rewarding journey playing TZ. This was the first game I ever bought and I could easily have one again. "Don't touch the door" I say remake it with modern art, audio and video but, keep the shots the same and it will sell like mad.

Possibly my favorite classic pin. I owned one 2 different times. I mean the multi-ball intro is the best ever. The call-outs are great. Some games on it can make you think its boring but, when you own one and your able to play it more you just may get that one ball that changes your mind quickly. I had that moment at a friends house playing it one night against GAP and it made me a fan forever. The game is a blast and deserves to go down in history as one of the best.

One of the first pins I ever bought and sold. Now, I have the remake LE. I love love love the theme. Love the art. Rules are a little shallow of coarse. The pin is so approachable and instantly fun for everyone right off the start. The toys are the best part. The music is good. The call outs are funny and well done. What more fun could you have than BASHING some Monsters. It really has it all except the depth in the rules some players crave. Overall pin package is outstanding.

(updated Nov 2021 and still feel the same) I took delivery of EHOH LE the week it came out 2 years ago and it is still here. What a fun game. The House is just a cool toy. The back door shot is always hilarious with dracula guys call-outs making the player laugh. The ramps are smooth connecting you to the trunk which is very clever. The crypt is a neat toy with a dual purpose. The music changes are very cool along with the campy movies. I can't get enough! The movie clips are well implemented and just the right amount. The modes are good. The music changes are excellent and it just works. Everyone that comes by the house loves playing EHOH. The whole package just works. My only wish was for a full on Adult Mode for more adult humor if you so desire. If they updated with that feature it would put it over the top. Updated to a 10! The more I have played this game the more it shines. and the quality has been great so far. Zero issues.
