This game is very good. JP designed and it shows. My son and nephew had a riot playing it for the first time. It made the decisions easy to buy. It's not the most difficult game on factory settings, but its extremely fun and exciting to play for all skill levels.

My son and I were able to find a common ground with this pinball machine. It's got a very beautiful artwork package throughout. The sounds are very cute and fun with a decent amount of variety. It's not a very difficult machine to master, but I keep going back to play it!

Great game with some very unique shots. The "smart" ramps are very awesome and get everyone the first time. The sounds get somewhat grating after a time, when you are in a mode and it keeps repeating the same loud call out over and over. The game itself executes greatly, however. The theme would have been much more enjoyable as the HB cartoon as opposed to the lame-o movie.

The shaker motor is one of the few that actually FIT the theme perfectly! The call outs are fun, even tho the game does say "Bitchin'!" :D The fault line action between the two states is a very neat toy. Pretty great shots and the game play is one that keeps me coming back.

Fun game that has a lot going for it. Lots of stop and go play, but keeps you engaged and the animations are pretty excellent.

This game either is loved or hated. I personally love it, great variation of game play, difficult shots and modes. Video animations are pretty nice. Alternate Translite is almost necessary, the original is CREEPY.

Even if you aren't a poker fan, this game has a lot going on. Simple drops all over for the novice, cool ramps, upper PF has got a few things going on up top too. Over all, one of my surprise favorites.

This game is very fast and fun to play. The 13 ball may be a gimmick, but it's made everyone who's seen it laugh out loud and want to play more. The video animations are some of the coolest that I have seen on a pin, very well done for only being a DMD display. Callouts are fun and I'm sure they would make much more sense to me if I had actually seen the source movie.

Interesting enough game, the PF layout is weird with it being all jacked over to the left, but over all a decent game. Very much like an EM in play style and sounds.

Pretty awesome game that took me by surprise. Got it in a trade and was not sure I'd like it. Now, I'd be surprised if I let it go.

I may be in the minority, but I preferred this to the original JP. I felt this one was a lot faster and I personally was more impressed with the snagger tool of this game over the T-Rex toy from the original. This game is a fun one with some nice colors to it. Game play is fast and fun.

This game was a hit with everyone that played it here. I really enjoyed the theme, music and game play. Being a wrestling fan growing up helped me really enjoy this game, but it was a hit with people who were NOT fans of the WWF/WWE. Great DE game w/ a shaker!

Pretty fun shot up the jet ramp. This game has some fun spy humor and a decent amount of "Real" music. I thought it was great how the game sang to me (with lyrics on the screen) after I lost. I can't say I've ever had a game do that for me before.

This one plays slower than a lot of my other sys11s. The art is pretty unique. The layout is fun at times, its a good game for a collection. Fun backbox animation/toy. Gameplay and sounds grow on you after time.

This one has some pretty fun combo shots that require a good amount of concentration to nail down regularly. The modes are fun and the theme is pretty well done. The game itself has weird quirks and that shaker is border-line obnoxious at times (beast mode). Over all a great game.

Very quick game, very blinding as well, especially with LEDs. I love it, fun to thrown down a few games and move onto another machine. Everyone seems to play a couple games on it when they come by.

Great game, greatest of the roller trilogy of the era, in my opinion. Fun to rock the comet ramp for a million, cyclone ramp is great and the Ferris wheel shot is satisfying. Love the call out, great theme, and the music fits.

Played Back in Black and thought it was pretty damn awesome. Much more so than the Pro, oddly enough.

This game is simple and a lot of fun with 2 players or alone. Its so simple you don't have to worry about any rules, just kick back, have a beer and knock out some balls.

Awesome game for an awesome theme. Fast gameplay with a ton of modes. All kinds of toys that arent too in the way. Big moving Balrog Monster that swings out for you to bash. One complaint is that they just ziptied the plastic figures to the PF. You'd think stern could spend the extra $1 and make it look nice.. But it doesnt effect game play or anything so not a huge deal.. just weird that the did that.

This one was my favorite that I played of the newer Sterns. Up against Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Transformers and a couple others, it was my favorite. The game play is fast and intuitive. The multiball modes are awesome and the deadly disc magnet up top is an excellent tie-in to the movie.

Over all I really liked this machine. I did think the playfield seemed VERY "flat". The ramps didnt go up as much as I'd expect out of a newer machine. The playfield was also VERY dark. At first I Assumed that some GI or other lights were out, but during attract mode, this was proven false, as all the lights turned on. We ended up determining that the OP had RED standard bulbs on the right out lane, probably because of the red plastics on that side, but all it did was make that area super dark and nearly impossible to track the ball properly.

I enjoyed playing this one. The music made me angry. It would play one song and only one song. Drain the ball and it restarts THE SAME SONG.. I've been told that you can switch the song by hitting a certain music note target, but that target never lit up for me. I was able to get multiball pretty easily, but the music thing just annoyed the heck out of me. AC/DC music is great, dont get me wrong, but the SAME song.. over and over.. just made me want to drain quick and walk away.

This game was pretty decent. I had no problem understanding the rules, I just think there wasn't that much depth to the game. The music was turned down really low where I played it, so I could barely hear the music or make any rating on if it was too much/too little. Over all its a decent machine, but I won't play one again unless its free.. and even then not unless its the only one there.

Rudy is a creeper, but other than him the game is a great one.

If you are a fan of the computer games, you will get a kick out of all the stuff they have on the playfield from there. If you aren't I believe you will still find a good time on this pin. Lots of crazy shots all over. Really interesting 3rd and 4th flippers. The rollercoaster ramps are pretty intense. Pretty easy game over all and tends to please the crowd.

This one is pretty simple, but still offers a great deal of fun. Nothing too challenging about this pin, but that doesn't really detract from me or my son enjoying it.

Played Diner and loved it. The Theme is pretty cool, you have to hit certain targets based on your customer's desires. The whole playfield looks awesome and they game plays pretty fluently.

High Speed is the great grand daddy of Getaway. It's doesn't have the same bells and whistles of its faster sequel, but it still plays pretty damn fast. It's fun and plays quickly.

I played this @ LTGs and it was awesome. Crazy how much these things go for, but rarity deems the price. And the game is down right outstanding to play.

The whole table shaking kinda threw me off and I drained. But, once you are expecting it, its pretty cool. I love the Rudy-esque heads that talk to you and open their mouth for pinballs. The amount of stuff you can do in this game is pretty awesome. It truly is the "kitchen sink" edition of pins.

This one is a great pin with some difficult shots. It tends to drain quickly on me, but thats just a testament to my skills. Humorous pin with great replay value

The spinning discs in the playfield and the fan blowing wind at you from the topper add to an already awesome game! Great fun. I'm really enjoying the game a lot more now that I own one!

My kid and I really enjoyed this one. You get to "fight" a couple of the bad guys from SM movies. Good fast gameplay, with a decent amount of lastability.

Addam's is always fun to play. I tend to give it a try when ever I see it. It tends to kick my arse, but its still a fun time. Great sounds and music. Some of the comments that the game makes are hilarious.

I like this game a lot. There is so much going on at times, it's hard to keep your eye on the ball. The theme and music is outstanding. Really fun one to play for both me and my son.

If I watched more of TZ growing up, I'd probably get more of the images/sounds/everything. Even with my lack of TZ knowledge, I still really enjoyed the variety and action on this pin.

GnR is a pretty wicked pin. The music is a few GnR tunes that changes frequently during play. The shots are pretty challenging at times, but the pay off is sweet. Great pin.

Just played this one time, but it was pretty awesome. Lots of neat shots involved and some really awesome ramps, very unique!

The supercharger is BOSS! This game is a heck of a lot of fun. For the right price, it'd be a great addition to any game room.

Great Pin! First of the Roller Coaster Williams 80s pins. It only has so many options to shoot for however, and this makes it not a long lasting pin in my opinion.

The Simpsons! So awesome. The pin is great fun. One of the top pins, imho.

I've only played an emulated version of this pin (pinmame), but It's easily one of the pins I've played more than most! Fun theme, the game speech and music is really great as well. I couldnt stop playing it last time I tried it.

Didnt even realize they made a 3rd roller coaster themed one until I saw this game. Pretty fun to play, with lots going on. the double ferris wheel is an interesting idea, sure it slows down the game some, but thats just a perfect time to take a few swigs of your beer/beverage. I liked this one a lot. Seems like a good one if you like cyclone/comet type games.

STAR TREK TNG.. so awesome. I am a fan of the show, watched it growing up. I LOVE the way they did this one, with all the different voices from the show with sweet little lines like "WE DONT HAVE TIME FOR YOUR GAMES Q!". I'd buy one for my game room, just have to find it for the right price. (hint hint, send me a msg if you have one for sale)

My son and I loved this, not the "best" game around, basically its bowling.. with a metal disc/puck. He thought it was the coolest thing ever.

This is a great upgrade to Pennant Fever, fun to play, with neat features like base stealing and winning cards.

This one has been said to be repetitive (with the center ramp being the ramp to win with, I guess). My son and I played it recently and had a great time!

I cant get enough of this game. Sad that its so expensive, generally. But over all, its worth it!
