Just could not get into this. Artwork and music are good but seemed not that fun to play.

This is an early classic game I once owned. I am a hockey fan (GO SHARKS!!) so I got this. I like the popup between the flippers which simulates a hockey power play. Nice feature there. Targets to hit and simple enough for anyone to play. Collectible because Bobby Orr was great and he played most of career with Boston however this game has him in his last year as a Chicago Blackhawk so there are 2 big fan bases there to choose from. Backglass has Bobby Orr shooting left handed but in real life he shot right handed. This error makes it unique. In coin collecting an error strike makes that coin more valuable so maybe the same with this game. In any case I kept the extra back glass and made frame for it and have it on my wall. Very affordable classic target type game.

I like this game and owned it for over a decade, but have moved on to newer more fun DMD games. The drop target sequence is fun and not that difficult meaning anyone can play and have fun. Very affordable classic older SS game with high production so lots around.

This game has great artwork and theme. Amazing walking up to it but the play is boring. Play is repetitive and not fun.
A real pretty machine when all lit up with an amazing theme, but for me it is very disappointing. Technical support from Jersey Jack an issue too. A friend of mine called to ask about a problem and was told they just make them. I think this could be a technicians nightmare and who knows how long this manufacturer will stay in business. Compare that to Stern that is big and going strong with excellent customer service and support.

I played this pin and it was fun. Good family game that kids would love. Kids like video games and this pin fits that with cool theme of fighting martians. Not that difficult of a game for me to get for my collection and I would be concerned with the monitor going out. Fun to play but not for me.

I owned an earth shaker. Fun for awhile at first and the shaker motor is cool but I soon got bored. Just not a lot to do. Disaster theme is good. Callouts too repetitive. Not a keeper for me.

Who does't love that great drive-in theme and a scary classic 3D movie? The artwork on back glass and cabinet is just stunning. Five popular songs from that era that I just love to hear all cranked up in volume. Maybe just me as I am also a rock and roll nut. Animation is great with the guy trying to put moves on his girlfriend and the move your car. Only downside I see is the just 2 ball multi ball , but then that is when you get to search for the creature and see him on the hologram below the play field. Spelling FILM to get to the multi ball is a challenge. Not too difficult and anyone can play. A very under rated game and best game John Trudeau ever designed.

This is a deep game with lots to do. Lots of ramps, skill shots, loops and holes. Another great Steve Richie wide body game. The theme based on a popular series is great. DMD animations are good and ColorDMD makes the color DMD for this popular pinball game which I put on mine and it stands out even more. This game has last ability. A keeper for me.

I love this game. Fits the theme well. Artwork good. Lots of shots, multiple modes, many multi balls. Deep game. This will have a lot of lastabilty in my collection. This machine is a tons of fun. This was so popular when it came out that Stern had to produce another run. Mine dated on cabinet the 2005 run. Absolutely the best game Stern ever made hands down.
