Easily one of the best Data East pins, but also the best Star Wars pin by far!!!

Fun Sega overall!! Love the layout and shots.

An underrated Stern, Lawlor put his most effort into this one when he was at Stern. Great game, but the only thing that annoys me is the match sequence. If only I can get rid of the Alvin and the Chipmunks squeal. Other than that, it's a top ten Stern.

Decent game, but still fun!!

Great game. The use of the Magnum is brilliantly well designed in the game. Modes are pretty good too. Fun game overall!

An iconic pin from the 80s. Easy one of the best of that decade.

What a great Capcom game!!!! This is F-14 Tomcat on Steroids!!!!! I love all the wireforms across the playfield and really shocks me that people don't think this is Capcom's best released pin!!! Well, I think this is Capcom's best pinball they've released!!

Huge improvement over the original High Speed!!! I find this game to have more flow than it's predecessor and I do think this is one of Ritchie's best at Williams.
7.987/10

Great game!!! Got to play it at PAGG 2014, and I think this game along with BBB would have saved Capcom if they had released this. Great modes and shots, and certainly a game that will go up in value!!!

Great punishing game, and I love the 30 Million call out!!! Glad it's getting the credit it deserves now.

One of Steve Ritchie's best with Stern. Not better than AC/DC, but I like it more that Star Trek.

Groundbreaking game and sadly, it was Bally's last game, but the legacy of this game still remains and that's what matters.
5.642/10

Fun game, but not a better pin than STTNG.
6.351/10

KISS sounds like a great potential pin for its time, but I just find it dull and overpriced.
6.758/10

Not a bad game, but I wish Data East put a little more effort into it.

If you've never played Addams, then something is wrong with you!
7.524/10

Great System 11 machine. Lots of ramp shots and a blast to play, even though only like 1000 were built, but still worth playing if you find one.
7.613/10

Seriously underrated machine. The field goal ramp is a cool feature and I like the concept of the player going down the field and scoring a touchdown. One of the better Data East machines out there.
6.547/10

Great EM, had a lot of fun with this one. Lots of hole and drop target shots.
8.712/10

Stern has knocked it out of the park again!!!! Metallica is another great pin that is certainly a favorite of many owners already. Great song list, but I wish Whiplash was included.
6.355/10
9 years ago
Not a bad machine, but lack of multiball definitely lowers the score a bit especially since this was released in 1985. However, the tube ramp is very cool and hitting the right set of drop targets is satisfying. Still, this machine was already a little outdated when it was released.
6.996/10

Feels alot like a Bally SS of its era. However, it has that layout that suits the game well. Spinner shots are very satisfying.
7.254/10

A great 70's solid state by Bally. What's not to love about the art package? The shots are good, and definitely one of my favorites.
7.196/10

Played this for the first time today, and what a fun widebody Stern this is. Lots of shots, love the double flippers, and the art package is just killer. Definitely worth playing.
7.880/10

A great bang-for-your-buck pin. Congo has a lot of satisfying shots and modes that make you come back for more.
8.264/10

A great debute from JJP. With a few code updates, this game can be easily considered a top ten pin.
8.540/10
9 years ago
Easily my favorite Data East pin, but tied with JP. Binders are awesome, music is great, there's a good reason why many say this is one of the best.
7.278/10

Played this EM for the first time, and thought it was a great pin from that era of EM's. The drop targets were nicely placed and I ended up getting the top score on the machine!!!!
9.560/10

Easily the best Stern made in the 2010's. Steve Ritchie knows how to make amazing games, and this is no exception. My only wish was that Shoot to Thrill was included.
5.358/10

Not a bad pin from that early SS era, Future Spa is a fun and campy pin. It's not a perfect pin by any means, but when I see one on route, I'd play it.
7.924/10

A seriously underrated pin. Doctor Who has a lot of great shots, the idea of choosing a doctor is brilliant, and the time expander playfield is just brilliant. May I say more?
5.069/10

Great theme, but a bad pin. The "buttpipe" callouts are extremely annoying and unfunny, the Cartman hole looks like Sega ran out of money to put in a toy there, and finally, Mr. Hanky. I know the show at the time was juvenile and vulger, but I never knew the day would come when I would see feces that spell out the word MULTIBALL. I hate this pin, and it's too bad because Sega got a great theme, and flushed it down like Mr. Hanky.
9.220/10

Certainly one of the best pins to recently come out from Stern.
8.880/10

After playing this pin, I honestly think Goldeneye is the very best Sega pin out there and a great bang for your buck pin.
8.470/10

Played it at PHOF, and what a great machine Pinball Circus is! Getting the ball onto the top level is extremely fun and addicting!!

It's too bad Bally didn't make a limited run of these, but it is what it is.
9.000/10

Played this pin when I was a little boy, and I still love CFTBL. The hologram is very cool and the music and speech is perfect. Easily one of my favorites.
3.552/10

Played it for the first time today, and man, what a terrible game. The gopher is creepy on the translite and the artwork isn't good. Playfield is OK, but that's about it positively. Gottlieb should've tried harder on this pin.
3.140/10

Played it for the first time today, and I am disappointed. This game could have been a lot better and the gimmicks get old quickly.
10.000/10

Best Star Trek machine by far, and easily one of the best widebodies out there if not the best.
7.841/10

Way too easy of a Stern game but still a good game.
9.460/10

One of the best Sterns ever made.
6.351/10

Not a bad game, but why bother remaking one of Williams' best pins ever.
7.642/10

Great game for your money and is a part of pinball history.
7.492/10
10 years ago
I played this for the first time not too long ago, and I like the shooting cannon that fires that ball which is very cool and reminds me of the cannons on STTNG. This is an underrated Bally game that came out at a great time and deserves a little more love.
9.804/10

The best Williams DMD pin ever created. No exceptions.
9.895/10

Easily one of the best Bally pinball machines ever created. A must-on for ANYONE!!!
2.290/10

Played it for the first time yesterday and I am very disappointed. Not very good ball-flow, too much stuff on the playfield, trolls are annoying, etc. Seriously, this game is OVERRATED and not worthy in your collection.
9.360/10

Best Data East pinball machine ever. No exceptions.
7.332/10

Not a bad game, I'm a huge fan of the 3D backglass.
6.120/10

I think this is one of DE's worst games, but it's not the worst ever.
6.066/10
11 years ago
A rare game indeed, I got to play it today, and is really a pinball/redemption type of arcade game. 3 balls in 3 holes and whatever numbered hole the ball goes in, you get that amount of tickets. It's a pretty simple game.
8.016/10

Red and Ted are more entertaining than Rudy from Funhouse. Personally, I think in some ways that this is the spiritual successor to Funhouse and it is a great game.
3.755/10

Does this even count as a pinball machine? I'm sure this is a redemption game. (IGNORE THIS REVIEW)
7.508/10
11 years ago
Great game, but I've heard it's a nightmare to fix due to all the plastic boulders on the table. However, this is overall a great pin and worth playing.
8.480/10

I love the trunk toy on the playfield, and when I played it the first time, I scored over a billion points. Not bad at all.
9.396/10
11 years ago
I love the toys in this game. The spinning lamp and the genie are so cool on the playfield. Definitely one of Williams best games.
9.290/10
11 years ago
The Shadow is a great pinball machine. The theme is OK, even though it wasn't a good movie, and I cannot stand Alec Baldwin. However, everything else is perfect; the playfield, battlefield area, gun grip plunger, etc. What an great game!!
9.120/10
11 years ago
Played this pin at a pizzeria not too long ago, and it is a great pin. Not a fan of Elvira, but the horror theme fits perfectly here. I like the spinning web in the backglass, which is very cool. Overall, this is a great machine and worth getting.
8.480/10
11 years ago
Definitely one of the last great pins made under the Bally name.
10.000/10
11 years ago
Probably the only pinball machine that has no flaws at all. It is a must-own for any collector and is one of the greatest of all time.
1.221/10
11 years ago
Why would any pinball collector in their right mind buy this machine? It's hard enough staring at an image of it.
7.820/10
11 years ago
My favorite thing about this game is the ship toy in which the ball has to hit it three times and it will "sink". Can't get any better.
8.332/10
11 years ago
I love this game but after a while the music gets annoying and the cabinet decals will fade very badly. However, I recommend it because it is a fun game and in some odd way, the machine wants you to get better at it.
8.454/10
11 years ago
Fun game, but I dislike the decals on the cabinet because the images looked a little fuzzy.
9.520/10

A few years ago, I played this machine at a bowling alley, and for some reason, it made me want to play pinball again. I had a PS2 and PS3 at that point in time, and I played a lot of video games back in high school. At the end of senior year, all I wanted to do for fun is play pinball. Thank you Williams for producing a marvelous game and helping me get back to pinball!!
8.105/10

Definitely one of the best DE machines to be produced.
10.000/10

As being a fan of the iconic TV show, this game is a must play for the Simpsons fan. Most of the cast from the show have recorded lines for this game and that is very, very cool in my opinion. The artwork on the playfield and cabinet is very cool although it might fade over a period if placed in a bad location. I have played this machine about 10 times at arcades, and I have to admit that this machine is already a modern classic and will go up in value as time goes on.
