Believe the hype. This game is fun. I like it more than I thought I would. Call outs get a little old but that is a very small critique. This game shoots well and the rules are great. I have been playing the heck out of it for the last 3 weeks. I was not even that into Jurassic Park but I like the theme more than I thought I would. Can't go wrong with dinosaurs!

Hitting that spinner when it is worth 50k a spin is awesome. Alien Star is not deep but it is fun and fast.

Beautiful Machine. Sounds were great for its time. I found it fun to play for a bit but I feel that I did tire of it.

This is a pretty fun game. The shots and rules are solid and fun. Theme and art is a little cheesy and garish but it fits the early 2000s casino them. Seems like a well built machine.

As others have said, this game is simple and addictive. Games are short and fun. I kind of like the music. I am a big fan of Ed Krynski's games and this one I am currently addicted to.

I had a great example with few plays on it. The pop bumpers were very lively and I found a lot of the shots pretty fun. It did need some extra rules, but I found the game pretty decent and I really like the way it felt. I can't believe Wico didn't make more machines! Not a bad effort at all for 1984.

Victory is a pretty cool game with a few interesting rules that makes it fairly unique and brings some strategy into play.

The music is great. I really enjoy the fact that it makes you focus on one shot and there is a timer involved. It has a different feel than a lot of games and I feel like I do a lot of dead flipping and ball control that seems somehow more natural on this pin.

I wish that there was more of a reward fro finishing the race and that there was something more to do than start the exact same race again.

Overall I am impressed with the game. It definitely keeps me engaged and sometimes I catch myself kind of dancing to the music while shooting those checkpoints.

I recently got a $ Square that had been in storage for years. It had a bunch of playfield wear and a beat up cabinet. I wanted a player. This is a player. It is pure pinball fun. The little flippers are perfect. Completing the 4 targets is always a great goal with rewards in points and increased scoring. I love how you first have 4 targets to aim for and soon there is one pesky target to hit. All the targets continue to give points. Very rewarding and fun game. This is pure pinball joy.

I think that Spy Hunter is an OK game. Not too deep and it is a little weird with the flippers over to the right. It is not bad at all though, but it makes way more sense in a larger collection. I had one and really enjoyed it for a few months. Then when it was time to let it go nobody really wanted it. Not a bad game, but not a great game either.

After reading the reviews I was hesitant to get this game. I think it has surpassed my expectations in fun and challenge. I have the larger red posts on the horseshoe and while it is an important shot, it is not an easy one. Not too difficult either, I would say it is just right. The rules are easy to follow, light the letters, but I find enjoyment in the strategy of how to get them down. Obviously it is a beautiful game.

It has been my go to game for a few months and like most early Ballys I enjoy the simple rules and game play. Anyway, I think it is a pretty solid game.

Night Moves is pretty fun. Some of the best music in all of pinball. I feel that there needed to be one or two more rules or features and it would have been awesome. The playfield is actually pretty large and I think that overall it is a good machine.

Sorcerer is pretty awesome. I wish it had one or two more elements when it comes to rules and strategy, but this game is pretty dang cool.

Simple rules. I love the pop bumper location and the 4 flippers are perfect. A little too much relies on getting in the lit saucer for the 10x bonus for the targets, but that is OK.

Skill Pool is a pretty fun EM. Gotta light those pop bumpers with the rollovers or the points don't come. For some reason I just keep throwing quarters in this machine. I usually don;t like games with gobble holes, but this is a good one.

Good game. I think that I am not a fan of those kickers behind the flippers and that gets a negative mark for lastabilty.

I love this game! It is a great EM. Gotta get the heat level up!

I have played this game more often and I have increased my opinion of it. Still there is something a little off, but I enjoy it more now and have a better idea of a strategy. It is still a little clunky and the flow is not there.

For it's era Comet is great fun. I keep coming back for more. The rules are simple yet good.

Whirlwind is a classic! I think that the only thing I found got annoying was so much scoring emphasis on the upper flipper hitting the ramp shot.

The flow on Demolition Man is amazing.

Good playing game. Not the deepest, but it has great flow and clear rules. I wish the super jackpot was a bit easier to get as it is really tough!
