It's a fun game. You get a lot of multiball action and you can sit on it for quite a while. The simplicity does wear after a while though, and the redneck voices and theme get annoying if you're sober.

This game is huge and has a lot to do for such an old machine. I absolutely adore the art, and the reflective parts of the backglass are so eye catching.

It's like movie games from the NES era, and anyone that knows, knows what I mean...

These cocktail pins are neat converation pieces, but that's about it. There's a reason they didn't last long.

I love a good schlocky pin. If you can find the right theme and pull it off no-one can beat it. This one takes 50's drive-in theatre and the greatest drive-in thriller and takes them there. The game is fun to; you almost feel like you're parking cars in a red hat.

A fun, old pin that has some cool shots, like the layered drop targets.

I'd rather play the video game...

This one way fun for me. I enjoy the theme park pins, with the different games set up as rides and attractions. The chick on the backglass in the skin-tight purple outfit and the sharp, shiny nipple doesn't hurt for attracting folk either...

It's kind of like Taxi, only harder (BONG sealclubber!) I love the very unique and akward theme for a pin and the peopl yelling at you for there order is priceless! It reminds me of my job in the grocery business.

It's all loops but doesn't flow well. Not sure why...

A brilliant game. One of the final best

One of the oddest games I've ever played. The way the game throws balls at you startling and cool at first, but easy to figure out. From there, it's a pretty basic pin.

This one has a lot of kitch and it plays on that well. The spinner is a fun gimmick

A lot of things are done right on this game. It's got some very original gameplay concepts. The sci-fi theme is done perfectly and it's a blast to get the ball to the lower playfield.

Easily one of the most fun games of its time. It's got flow and the backglass is the king of style.

Slow and uninspired...

This game is odd. You can tell what they were going for, but you can't really play it. Some of the shots are impossible to do on purpose and you end up feeling like you're just putting the ball around.

It's not the most complicated game, but it has great flow and it's a blast to play!

A very fun game. The magnetic wand: I've watched several people go fully wide-eyed the first time they see it. I too was baffled and amazed!
6.178/10

What an original game! The only problem is you almost never feel like you're playing it.

One of my favorite games as a kid! Pinball AND video game? Yes please...
7.238/10

I like the theme of the game. It's like you're in Cleopatra's tomb, trying to unlock the puzzles to get at the treasure. With the drop targets right in the center, the shots can be a challenge and even a bit frustrating, but that's pinball...

The mini playfield is funny, only I wonder if there was a way they could have made the tiny pinball a bit heavier.
7.803/10

The ball spinning around the track in the perfect gimick for this pinball. I could see mylsef gonig out today to buy one if I were a drunk redneck that thought Nascar was a sport.
7.438/10

It's a great gimick, but not really pinball. I hate losing sight of the ball on these things and in a dark arcade the dark playfield wears your eyes out in a hurry.
5.613/10

This game is a snoozer and the theme makes is seem like a cartoon show, not a machine based on a museum of the unknown. I had trouble staying interested in this one.
8.880/10
10 years ago
A very engaging game that I think usually gets extra points because of the girl on it, but I wouldn't complain. This game does what most games try to do with limited success, in that it creates the feel of the theme its going for. A bit easy (hit the massive trunk for skill shot) but its still super cool and that makes it very fun.
6.509/10

The music and quotes from the show clash horribly with the comical nature of the machine. You get the feeling The Sopranos is a sitcom or this pin is a parody of the show. Still, having nothing but loops and the very simple design is fun for a while as you get the ball shooting up in circles around and around.
7.167/10

The bottom of the playfield is new to me, with the lanes between the flippers, but the mechanics and feel definitely capture the show, if that's anything to brag about. I did find myslef holding the ball though while I tried to figure out the puzzle answers, but I'm sure the game repeats pretty early so even that wouldn't last long. They needed to use a picture of Vanna from the early 90s though. Pat, like Alex Trebeck, hasn't aged in a quarter century...

Fans of Star Wars will love this game's feel, although it is a bit simple and there aren't a lot of shots. The left ramp is an easy hit and I just found myself hitting it in loops and starting multiball over and over...
6.675/10

Even for a game with very early electronic sound, the bad, short midi riffs of Star Trek TV show themes are only noticable if you're a die-hard like myself. The game has some fun shots, but none of them are really ST themed, except for maybe the beaming roll overs, and that's a little silly. Still, the backglass is super cool and it is Star Trek...
8.882/10

One of my favorites. It's super flashy, has great flow, a giant robot girl making suggestive sounds, and isn't super complicated. I do think though that they left the frustrating ball drain from Pinbot in this game on purpose. I'm always amazed whed the ball goes down the flipper path and not out the side.
6.798/10

Amazingly ambitious, but I just can't get into it. I hate how the ball vanishes behind the screen and how I have no idea what's even back there. Not to mention the movie was so aweful that I don't care about the elements taken from it to produce the challenges in the pin.
6.335/10

A simple layout but with some challenging shots and an easy to learn rules set. This one also has four flippers at the apron, which makes for some very embarrassing misses and makes this a fun one to play in groups.
8.087/10

A great wide-body. It feels open but full of shots. I even tried to buy this one from under a guy that had already paid for it.
7.450/10

Kind of a ho-hum theme but I love the drag race gimick and the big engine block.
7.564/10

This game is so congested and I don't like that you can't see the back of the playfield at all. The ball lock being a fishing reel is a nice touch though...
8.240/10

I like that the villians are on the playfield. As a Spiderman fan, that draws me to this one.
7.686/10

I'll go into the local sandwich place that has this game just to play it and have a pint of Pabst Blue Ribbon. The ski lift and the slalom and fun and fresh and a couple of the short shots are unique.
8.200/10

I love pinball. I love poker. Getting to play out poker hands in this game is the draw for me. Even if the gameplay does feel a little dated, I'll keep coming back to see my next hand.

I'm not sure what you're supposed to be doing in this game, but there's not a clear concept or mission. Another example of having to love the show to like he pinball machine. The centrifuge is really cool though...
7.616/10

It's my favorite PC game in pinball! The sounds and colors make this game, and it feels like there's much more going on than there really is. Well produced is what I'll call it.
7.141/10

I used to hate this one, but once you get to know it, you can play it forever. There's not a whole lot going on gameplay-wise, but you can stack extra balls all night long and just play, play, play...
7.529/10

A deceptively simple game, I've always found Firepower very challenging and engaging. You've got some hard balls coming at you and the playfield has some hard shots on it.
6.395/10
10 years ago
Very simple design, but I can't help but get engrosed in the gameplay. There's something about the two banks of drop targets and really get my blood boiling. I've always wondered why Gorgar talks like an idiot caveman though, and not with a bassy deamon voice or something cool like that.
7.584/10

A classic older machine with very little going on. Easy to get multiball, and aside from spelling Sorcerer 5 times to get the special, not much in terms of gameplay. Extra points for any game that talks trash like this one does.
6.532/10

The reason to play this one is the RPG mini game. Truly original. Other than that, very generic game.
7.443/10

I love Elvis, so I enjoy playing this machine for that reason. There's not many other reasons to play this one, and the sound quality should be much better for how recent this machine is.
6.586/10

I've always been frustrated with Pinbot. It has such a cool feel and charm, but a lot of the gameplay isn't very fluid. Nothing going on the the center of the playfield, and too many time you ball goes up the skillshot ramp, through the bumpers and straight down the left drain.
8.456/10

An old favorite, I can play this one a log time. To this day, I wish Pinbot was so hard to pick up.
9.200/10

I love the gofers in this game. They can really get to you with their casual trash talking if you let them, and there's a perverse feeling of satisfaction when you smack them with the ball.
7.999/10
10 years ago
The gameplay is simple enough: get multiball and score points. The unusually large upper playfield makes this one a fun to play machine and some of the turns and shoots really keep you on your toes.
8.410/10

A classic from my childhood, Funhouse has a unique game progression feature with advancing the clock and Rudy's head is a truly original gimick. Holds up well in terms of playability, even up against the modern machines.
9.350/10

One of my favorites. It's challenging but win-able, has a lot of extras, and the spinning lamp is a unique and engaging gimick.
9.488/10

An extremely challenging game with rare ease of control for how complex it is. So many character voices and personalities make this one a hoot to play.
