Great fast game, love the lock system, stealing the multiball. Playfield art is not my thing, I like the backglass. I really like the music, excellent job. Love the retro look of the displays. So no toys on the playfield. Looking a bit empty but such a great game to play. Probably not alone but with friends. Not the machine to own if you have a limited collection, but will do great in a bigger collection, as of 7 games or so.

I played a pro and next to the chest there is not really anything else for toys. Art is great, has the real nice rockband 70 style. Music is good, if you like Aerosmith then you will like this the best. The game is fun but not more than that. Good machine.

Star Wars is a great game but the art and playfield layout is just decent. Now for the art I just look at the play field as that is what you see the most. The colors are nice but that is just it. It is not the killer play field art. The shots are nice but not perfect. There are no toys! I played a pro and just the tie fighter, but that is nothing. Rules or sometimes a bit dull. Shoot this, shoot that, and even sometimes you could not progress unless you shoot a specific shot. The music is great, Star Wars soundtrack is really good, animations are good, not the best yet, the explosions are a bit bad. Flow is great the ball keeps rolling, you have no time to rest on this machine. Lights are great. So overall a nice machine that I will play if I see one, one for the home?...I think not yet.

Ok it is not my theme, game is good, playfield art is not my think. The toys are ok but not top class. I like the phone but the metro station is way to big and there toys are also not in relation to each other. There is a lot of going on on the playfield, looks like a busy city and looks real cool. Music looked to me a little bit repetitive, but maybe is that just because i did not get far in the game. Modes look real cool. The part that your flipper is attacked is real cool. Playing via your phone is just a gimmick no serious player will do that. Selfie mode is nice but I did not have time to look up. Also the animations are for the spectator and not for the player. Game will do great on location but in a home environment, just do not know.

Now this is a fun game, with great shots. Although the theme does not appeal to me that much, I liked it. It's a fun machine with humor and some great shots like the cart shot and the hole in one shot. The spinning disk is fun, the popup heads are ok. Some great modes and multiball. Good fun with this one.

Not a fan of the theme, and not a fan of the machine. The modes are ok, the shots are ok, but nothing epic going on. The Monger toy is ok but the only toy in the machine.

The rockstar theme is not my thing but I like this game. Sparky is a great toy and the snake head looks good. The multiball modes are great. There is some great flow in the machine. Nice machine, i like to play it. Just not for my home.

I own a LE and that is some machine, especially with some mods on it. The lit ramps are a must. Playing the PRO is ok, just a bit empty, no led, lo lights. Same machine as the LE only not the full experience.

Being a great fan of the show, this pinball deserved more. Not that Ritchie did not deliver, just the art package is not that good. Backglas and playfield are not my style. I like the flow, the dragon, the extra playfield, battingram, I just do not like the bright lighting and artwork. Modes are ok, not great, it just does not appeal to me.

Not a fan of the show, I like the pinball. I like the shots, the toys and the crossbow!
Beautiful machine, only not my style. Whenever I see one, I play it, always fun.

Owning a spider man red edition, the game is the same to me. Just adding new artwork and sound and speech. I like the animations, especially when you put in a color DMD. I like the callouts of the original better. Artwork, not a fan of the comic book style but that is just taste. For the rest a great machine. I would not trade my old spiddy for this one, but when you want a new one, go ahead.

Owning the red version, I do not understand the fuzz about the black version. Indeed it is one of the first LE's and limited in number. But spiddy needs to be red and not black i.m.h.o. For the rest the same game.

Owning a GBLE, I played the GB pro sometimes. Great machines, great flow, off course I like the GBLE/Premium more regarding the toys, ectogoggles, slimer mech etc. Great machine pro or premium, can't go wrong.

Problem for me is the empty playfield. And what about that third flipper? Why is it there, what shot can you make with that. Now normally film theme pinballmachines are one of my favorites, but this does not work for me. I expected more toys than just a dragon, the modes are really hard to get into. The pop ups are fun the first time but start to annoy pretty fast. I love the artwork and quality, although the widebody felt a bit 'clunky'.

Great game, great theme, great artwork. Just need to see if the ghosting issues will be kept under control. The shots are tempting and rewarding. There is a lot the shoot for. Rules are clear, lighting is good. Music is great, i would like some more call outs. For the rest, great machine, beautiful cabinet and colors.

Not my cup of tea. I just do not get this machine. Maybe I should try harder but for now....not for me.

Good Williams machine from that era. Not my game but I can see that some people are loving it. The fishing theme is not my thing but the fishing reel is great. Shots in the dual middle ramp are ok. The capture ball in between is a nice feature. The flipping fish on top makes it a special one of a kind machine. Colors are ok, art is decent, not my favorite but ok. You can't go wrong with this one, not the best but certainly not the worst.

Great machine, the Gold one is a bit to much for me, but the game itself is great. Love the thing, the power and ramps. Great gameplay, timeless theme. The music is great and animations are perfect for this machine. No wonder a lot have been made and you can still play these in numerous places.

This is a totally different concept. I like the video, real nice, great game feature. Will it last, no, problem for me is that it is just not a pinball nor a video game. It is a mix that just not it. This machine together with SWEP1 makes it unique. The game is ok but I have difficulty with the ball returns from the upper playfield, I just watch the animation to much. I like the martians and the humor they put into it. Problem is that if you have seen it a few times, it just gets normal.....

I did not know anything about the shadow, the theme, the movie. So just played the machine for a while to figure out what to do and what it was all about. The shots are nice, the ramps with the daggers are a nice touch. Love the mini playfield and the Sanctum option. But the theme is just not it. Maybe I should watch the Shadow more to get into it. Back glass art is not my thing, I saw that Aurich made a nice comic version of that. The art deco theme is ok.

Beautiful machine, great toys, packed playfield, nice display. Love the theme. There is so much to do in this game. The mini playfield, the tornado and witch, all real nice.

I do not like Circus but can see this is a very nice game. Not into all the shots, but appreciate the new elements on this machine. The placement of the display makes this machine unique. The bright colors and the neon makes it an eye catcher. It just is not my theme and game.

Like this machine a lot. Artwork could be better but it was just Sterns way of working in that time. Sounds are great, but the film score is awesome so no problems there. Callouts and modes are real nice, the ring is a great gadget on the field. You just get sucked into this one, real nice. Would love the add one to my collection.

Not my theme, just can't get into this. The gadgets on the playfield are real nice, the chest, the frogs, the bones. I like the shots. I like the backglass. But for the rest, it just is not a machine I walk to and go play.

I like the theme and am a big GoT fan, but this one just does not do it for me. First the shots are a bit boring, the dragon shot is pretty cool but that is just it. Maybe I did not get through the rules enough to make this one interesting. The lighting is very bright! I had some trouble with that. The modes are nice, the battles you can choose and the blackwater multiball is good. The display seems very bright and red. I think this game would be great with an LCD...maybe wait on a VE.

Dracula is a fast game, I like the theme, but am a bit annoyed by the sounds. The rules are not that difficult. The mist ball is a real nice gadget, also video modes are a nice addition. Personally, I do not like the backglass. The game is a solid machine, good rules, you can't go wrong with this one. Not one for my collection, for now.....

Great game, own a very nice one. I love the art work, the colors and the theme. The hologram is great, it truly is a black lagoon which just shows the creature when it is revealed. Love the shots, I like the ramps a lot. the flow is great in this game, with nice ramps shots, and both end shots (KISS, snackbar and SLIDE). The game is pretty easy in rules, collect film and get the creature, not saying it is easy. I also love the deeper achievements like video modes, snack attack etc. Overall a solid machine with beautiful backglass and lighting.

I like the new star trek far more. The old one is just a relic from the past. The machine is dark and has a lot going on. I just do not like it a lot. Maybe I did not give it the full time or effort to understand it, maybe if you own only this one you would get into the deeper ruleset and all options. I just do not get triggered by the theme, artwork and playfield to start that path. Maybe if you are a hardcore fan, this is for you...

Well this is a crowded machine. There is a lot the figure out, but gets repetitive fast. The trunk is a nice thing, but you're hitting it a lot. The ramps are ok. I like to play it but not the first machine to run to, the theme and music, playfield, just not appealing to me. But nice machine. Play it but not own it. Just not for me..

Well rock games are not my thing, I played this one at a friends house. He's totally into AC/DC. Solid and great machine though, music seems good, canon is fun, game looks real nice with the led, the band figures look a bit cheap, for the rest a good Stern game. If you are into rock theme this is a must have. Although nothing new here by Stern.

This is fun to play, but the layout of the field is just not my thing. I like Thing getting the ball, I like the power and the chair. But there is a lot going on on the left while the right seems just empty. Also artwork is not my favourite. It is a nice play and great machine. Can't go wrong with this one.

Nice machine, with some tricky shots. I like the gumball machine, the mine playfield and the rocket launch. I like the music and theme, love the powerball options, great feature. I always play it when I see one, owning one.... not top of my list. There is just something with the playfield art that is just not my thing. Solid investment though.

Love Batman, and this is the best Batman machine out there (IMO). Love the theme, the crane, the shots. Only I do not like the joker figure, it is just cheap and meaningless. Saw one machine with a replacement for that, looked great but still, it is just a turning figure.
Rules are ok for a Stern from that era. I like SM more but you can have some good fun with this pinball. Not high on the wishlist, but would not mind to have one around.

Well, I just like this pinball. If in a great condition, this one is really nice. Il like it better than the DE version, that is just to dark for me, and the graphics on Trilogy are way better. The shots are simple but fun. I like the toys. The ruleset is simple but for a quick play ok. Music and theme do it for me. Hard to find a good one, most of these machines are pretty banged up. Would love to restore, clearcoat, new toys, etc. Just need to find the correct machine and time....
This is in my eyes the best of the three Star Wars pins, not by far on DE, but agree that the franchise needs a way better pin! Would be a killer!

I really like this machine. The theme and shots are great. And if you get this with Led's it is just gorgous. The music is nice but a bit old fashined, but good for that era. Beautiful artwork and theme. The skill shot is not my thing but is ok. Once you get your ball on the playfield, then the fun starts. Great gameplay. I really like to own one someday, should be a great addition to my collection.

It just isn't my thing. I like the moster theme but not the rockband thing. Some shots are nice and hard. I like the dracula and mummy shots. Toys are great. If I see it around I will play it, but it will never be my favorite, no need to own this one. For those who own one, it is a solid machine, looks nice, great investment!

I played the LE version at the DPO '15. The machine looks nice, especcially the cabinet with the lighting. The backbox is small and can feauture a small or large screen. The screen just shows the same stuff as the screen on the playfield, so I can not see any added value for this. The LE has nice colour but the game is just the same. The gameplay is about racing, there is a skill shot with RPM and the mini motor cycle revs up. The driver statue can turn around. There are some loops shots, which makes the game fast paced. The machine looks good. It feels very solid and big when standing behind it. They one I played was not the final product because the cabinet had some missing parts, like the ball shooter was not covered. The engineer said that would be fixed. I think they will do a good job, although the machine has a very broad frame to hold the glass. It just feels different. The theme and playfield shots are just not it for me. I am just not a fan of racing. Watching out what Highway Pinball is going to do with Alien. I like the ambition of the team the get things stirred up in the world of Pinball!

Played this machine at the DPO '15. Looks great, theme is great, shot's are great, video looks great. There were some issues with the machine, but overall a very nice machine. I like the rug shot, the parking lot and the bowling alley. The lighting is real nice. I just want to play more. The finishing touch is the small rug below the machine, that would be great in my gameroom.

This is a beautiful machine, the lighting, the playfield, the ship, all great. The laser in the LE is a very cool feature. Shots are fast and flow is really good. Would not mind having this in my collection. Not first on my list but certainly a very good pinball machine.

Well this is a very good machine, but not for me. The castle shots are great, the rules are good, the trolls are nice. But it just is not my game. If I do see it somewhere I play it, but it is something I would not consider owning, not yet anyway, there are better pinball machines out there for me.

I just love spiderman pinball, the shots are not easy, the toys are great. This is a great machine, maybe not the best ever but certainly a good pinball machine. This one is on the buying list, you just can't go wrong with this one.

My second machine, great machine to mod. These is a lot of place in the machine to get some extra figures etc in. The playfield seems a bit large and empty but there are some great toys like the ship, chest and compass. Shots are not to difficult but you need to take time, there is not a great flow in this machine. Ball play can be very long. The rules are easy to understand but the ultimate four wind multiball is not easy to achieve. The monkey shot is a but boring, de ship shot is great, artwork is very nice. I only do not like the cabinet art that much but in the row of machines this does not show that much. I worked with pinball browser on the music, the music is ok for the theme but you are missing the masterpiece " he's a pirate", so did include that, now that is almost perfect.

Well what can I say, my first machine, the one that it all started. I love the theme, the artwork, the music, the game. This is just great. Not to hard, but also not easy. You can play for a long time with just one ball if you get the hang of this machine. The machine is great and is a classic in my eyes.

Bought this without playing it first. At first it was very hard. Shots flew left and right in de drain lanes, after some practice I got hooked and wanted more, and do better. Every time I need more. This is a machine that makes me feel me against the machine. There is no cooperation on a good score here, you have to work for it and earn it! Love that. Theme is great, modding can be very nice and cool if you are into that kind of thing. Great machine, not saying that it will never leave the house, but it sure not first on the list.
