Fun game. Tough to score. deep complex rule set typical of JJP games. They score like EM games unless you do some crazy complex video game deep rule mode shots

Everytime I play this I like it more and can expand on what and how I play.
I really dig the hot wheels theme, the game is based upon a YouTube hotwheels series, which I'm not a big fan of. But I do like the game play, lighting, and rules

Pretty simple rules. Basic sounds, sexy theme, great game to learn shots.
Fun over all

Its a slick, sexy game. I'm not 100% sure if there is 2 modes/rulesets in this version.
I played a different version than the original version, I liked it but not as much as the original. Fun game, definitely very playable.

This is the most metal pinball I've ever played.
Its got a great flow to it, the theme is amazing and way to incorporate the two previous games into this one. Homerun in my book.

I love this game. From the first time I played it.
My kids play it, which I think is an accomplishment.
I bought it from the first owner it had 178 plays on it, in just over a week we've added 550 plays. The other games in my house are forgotten.
The flow of the game is great, and beginner/average player friendly. The theme is great and easy to understand.
It came with the Cleland sound mod chip, which takes the game to a level 5x over the original sounds and music.
Ramps are a bit cheap, and I'll probably look for a wireform mod. But there are a ton of upgrade mods for the pro model that make it really great amd add a layer of reinforcement to a somewhat flimsy original base game.
I'm excited that I'm able to add it to the collection. It's going to have a place for a great while

I ended up trading this. Its initial flashy jukebox allure wears off pretty quickly. The shots are not friendly to an average player. The household quickly grew tired of playing a mode through only to get low to no points. The sound is amazing and nostalgic,, but it doesn't sync up with video of the tour, because it's from their albums and not the tour.. Dont watch YouTube videos of the tour if you don't want to be disappointed. I'm happy to have owned it but am glad I was able to find an awesome trade for it.

This is an insane pinball. But not just a pinball, it doubles as a video jukebox.
Its a Cadillac or a Mercedes or what ever high end car comparison you want to use.

There is a deep rule set with lots to do to accomplish tasks and some interesting modes you can play.
Collecting the band members so you can start a song is fun and challenging. Especially figuring out the upper playfield shot to get Duff/throw the lights/lock balls.
Getting the multiballs that add to the song mode can go either way. You can get none of them or all of them at once. Makes for some crazy play.
Song modes are the best part. High scores abound if done properly. I can't seem to finish this part yet. The frustration of losing a 40mil song jackpot is a real thing.
Album modes are fun and slash solo can be tricky.
I've been able to get through all the albums, just not together.
Coma multiball is a great and fun ball save if you can make it happen.
The patches can be confusing but once you know what they do, they're a great help.

This is a super fun pin. So much so that I had to add it to my collection. It flows and it'll catch you off guard. The upper playfield is the place to be. Complete the drops and light the arrows. Get the multi ball and maybe an extra ball
Lower playfield gives you the multipliers and more drop targets, another shot at a multiball and if you cann swing it another extra ball.
The magna saves are unique and you have to learn when to use them , but don't remember too late or the Black Knight will laugh at you.

I've tries to play this at multiple locations before I write a review.

Thematically its very cool. Lots going on with the band and fun callouts

At times it get real busy, all most too much. Stacking multiballs and different modes can make it hard to hit certain shots. The lights can be confusing.

Ruleset can be confusing. Not exactly sure how things happen or what the goals are.

I really do enjoy playing this, and am considering buying one. Sometime a bit less is more though

Fun late 80's fighter pilot game. Think Top Gun and Iron Eagle.

The upper playfield is where all the action happens. You have to learn how to make it flow.

An interesting game, has an olde timey silent movie feel to it
The fire plug is a big plus within this game that cam and should be used to your advantage. A couple of tricky shots and a fun multi ball. The ceramic fire wheel under the play field adds to the over theme.

Update. I've sold this. Was a fun game once I turned the settings to be more player friendly. The playfield plastics are junk and game was made as cheaply as possible. Wear and tear and lack of proper maintenance can really hurt the game. Glad to be rid of it..

Lots of fun, unique design with the pinball and arcade in same cabinet. Tough to initially get the concept, then once you grasp whats happening it sucks you right in. You need to get the hang of the pinball part to do well in the arcade.
