Great game. Worthy to stand with the greats like mm and afm (I like this better than afm). Very fun. Maybe a little too easy so I docked a point for lastability.

Not perfect by any means. But probably the best Star Wars game out there.

Great game. Highly underrated IMO. I think it’s due to people playing early software or on location and not seeing the full extent of the theme, code, visuals, sounds and layout. It’s very much like lotr in that it’s a journey kind of pin. Not a “score-type” game. Smaug still kicks my butt.

Great game. No the best. Could have done more with Star Wars. Some tough, borderline unfair shots

All 10 for me EXCEPT Cgc refuses to increase the volume on the voice call outs even though they’ve been shown how to do it. Boooooooo.

Pretty good. But not top ten in my book. Kind of the new shiny thing. Not sure it will/should last in the top ten.

Meh. I guess I just didn’t get it. I think that scarcity and a cult following doesn’t necessarily add up to a good pinball machine.

Truly amazing game. I own the LE and CE is a little bit better (not much imo).

Amazing game. So glad I got one before the rush. Then I bought another. Love it.

I was surprised how much I liked this! The lower Playfield was super fun for me.

One of the best ever.

I hate Iron Maiden. Too bad the theme ruins this for me. The layout and shots on the game I played were really fun. The four flippers really makes it interesting and gives a lot of shot variety.

Wow. What a disappointment. We don’t get a lot of new pins where I am, so I am always eager to play this when I see it. It’s official. It will never get another dollar for me. In fact, I won’t even play it for free. It’s that little fun. Cheap drains everywhere. Yuck

I own the LE. Overall amazing package. I really love it overall but the shots aren’t as sweet as I wish and it’s not quotes as deep and I’d like. I recently played my MMr again and MMr is way more enjoyable for me.

Exactly like a perfectly restored mm. But better. The le trim is awesome plus shaker and invisaglass. Also, updated dots. I give it a perfect 10

Truly one of the best. Will never leave my collection. Challenging and fun.

I own a nice one, but am just not in love. I own an mmr and ij and sttng and this just doesn't seem to compare. Sound is too repetitive and disco. I love the old show, but am just not into the game that much.

My edit is that I read some old, very negative reviews, and I think these guys need to play again. And re-review. Their reviews are way off base with where the game is now. It's the best pinball of all time. Period.

This is an underrated game. Easily a top 10. I own tz, mm, ijtpa, desw, some real classics. This is on par with them all. Admittedly I'm a technology guy, and I don't own woz, only played it on location, but this game is deep, fun, and replayable. I'm looking forward to th because I like that license a little better.

Edit: I upped my rating and review based on adding a pinsound. Between the new rules, and the amazing original movie soundtrack, this game is now a contender. I love it. It's fettibg some real play at my house and a friend is looking to make it his first pin. Love.

I'm rating with the 20th anniversary ruleset installed, and frankly feel like it deserves its own entry into the list. It is leaps and bounds ahead of the original rules. Way more fun and deeper and more challenging. Thanks to Chad for being a stud. Seems like what most people complain about is the old monotonous ramp shot. The new rules really open the game up. I would have rated higher if real actor voices were used in the callouts. C3PO doesn't sound great IMHO. However, I love it and it will never leave my collection.

This is it. It got me into pinball as a teen and brought me back in later years. Not the best ever, but for its time it was perfect. It will always have a place in my heart and collection.

Played a rough one in a pizza joint. Fun, but the place was too loud to really let me hear the callouts, etc. Seems like it could be a fun game.

Edit: played a friends MINT condition game and it was awesome!!!

Great game. I played one with Laser sights and color DMD so I might be a bit biased but this is a great machine. I am partial to the theme too...

Great game play. Great toys. Easy to get into but hard to master.
