Star trek is not a theme that I care to spend money on. But if you are a fan..and like stern..It's a very nice game.

Good entry level pin, If you get hooked on pins this will eventually leave your collection.Although affordability make this a keeper for those on a budget.

Didn't like the music. didn't like the sounds.didn't like the callouts.
Didn't like it. Looks popular, I don't get it I guess.

I love the way this pin looks, It brought me to the point of finding one to play. This machine is one of those that looks better then plays. Still, it is one that I don't dislike, just not enough to buy one. To bad..they look nice.

Fun family game or those that don't play a lot of pins can get this game and score well. I don't much care for the music, but it is a fun game to play.

What child would like a loony tunes pinball machine? But a parent isn't going to spend the $$ for this. Could have been great. It's not. You have to remember..it is a pin.

T would Like to add this game in my collection. Problem is finding one in collector condition.
Love the theme / art / call outs. Unique

Even though I would not buy it..It was a fun game to play. Probably a great game for parents with young kids.

There are a whole lot of better sterns out there than this. Maybe I missed something, but I didn't get into this game. Boring.
7.360/10

I wanted so bad to love this game. Great theme and artwork.Just did not have long term playability for me. I'll still play it when I see it in the wild..but not to own. If I had tons of money, I would add it just because of the theme alone.

Fits my theme. Good looking pin. Plays well..good price. sorry not a data east fan..but If I were to buy a data east, this definitely would be the one. and I just might, if I find the right one at a decent price. I like this pin.Edit: I did buy this pin..I'm now a data east fan..great pin..love it.

Love the theme. One of the better Sega's. Haven't played this enough to consider it..but, I like it so far as a B

This was the game...in 1987. Not now..also lot if insets issues popping up.Love the sounds and music of this machine back then.

I played this at a bar. I think this would serve better in a family home with kids.
6.034/10

I like the looks of this game.Lasting Playability is not so great. Not for me.But, you can get these cheap, so considering cost for another pin could be a win.

Not a easy game to find in the wild. Played it at a collectors home. Flawless and fun game.Hope he sells someday. He had the topper too..beautiful.

I played 1 game. I could tell this game was not for me. I played this brand new at the dealer's request..I just wanted it to end. I will usually give a machine more of a chance with additional plays..no need for me on this on. No.

I have scared stiff, I had a chance years ago to get this for $1800, and it was a nice one! Been kicking myself ever since. Still looking for the right one..SS is waiting on it's sister

I have a love / hate relationship with this game. When I first saw it I didn't care for the looks. But, play this and it becomes addicting. Fun game. Still don't like The rudy head look...but I get past that and I find myself considering it someday.

Haunted house fits the theme that I love, many of my friends really like this game. I want to love it, but won't be a part of my collection.

Unique , fun game.I have others that I need first, but if I ever find one close to me in great condition at a good price. I won't hesitate.

Just feels cheap
Those who own it rate it better

Horrible repetitive music...Defaulting to "we're off to see the wizard" over and over and over... That is enough for me. Kills it. Plan on that song playing in your head when "you're off to fall to sleep"
Now if they make it where we can set time limits or choose different songs for the base default..my rating will be higher

Just couldn't get into it,
8.184/10

I like this game..lots to do. Lots going on. Don't think I would like to work on it, if it had issues though. It just seems complex..I may be wrong because I have never seen under the playfield as to what makes up this game. So, that is just one of those "feelings" I really don't know.
I wish it were the 1st star-trek as I really never got into the next. for me
7.740/10

Probably the only stern game that could make it to my collection. That is saying a lot for me, cause I really don't like stern themes. But they made a good player in this one. Theme or no theme..It is fun and challenging.
9.400/10

"Campy" it is not! I have never heard that word associated with this game..ever. This game has a lot to offer. Fun factor for any one who has a sense of humor.Like all pinball games, if you play it day after day after day (all day)..you may need to take a break..come back and it's longevity is solid. There is a reason that is number: 4 & commands a high $$. It is hard to dispute those 2 facts. If you get a chance to play it (hard to find on location) lucky there is one by me.

I see more people move this game in and out of collections more than most>
Good game, but not a long term keep. Always easy to find one for sale.

I finally got to play this game. It don't get all the hullabaloo on this one...top 10 maybe.

I don't much care for Sega, But! this game is just plain fun! multiball is just crazy!
Great game for the young or the occasional players because anyone can get a good score. I like it and since it doesn't command a lot of $$$ I may get one if it were a low play HUO

The gold just doesn't look as good to me. I still want a Addams, but sorry.. not the gold.
Just my own taste.

I'll keep this game too. Youngsters love this game and the adults do too. Pinball geeks may not appreciate it as much..but if you have just the average friends / family over it is always a hit
6.800/10

sorry, maybe I don't play this as much as I should to get a top rating. But I just don't care to play it

I question if there is a more beautiful playfield.. it's awesome. It's a keeper for me. This game is also one that I can not play nightly. I need some time off to want to come back to it..but hey...it fits into my halloween theme room.
8.020/10

I'll eventually get this game. A few others will come first..I love the show/theme. But, it does get repetitive if you play it a lot. Great in a collection as a stand by. When I do get one I will keep it cause I do enjoy it...but I can't play it night after night.I still want it and would keep it.

IT'S Twilight zone. It is what everybody rates... in the top 2.Should be number 1
9.760/10

This machine still can give me "chills" after 4 years, kill his 3 concubines,and all hel* breaks loose. kill his werewolves, get bats, and rats, try to kill Dracula
3 different multiballs even at the same time. This game has so much then one would know without looking it up. Fast..Yes, very fast if properly maintained. shorter flipper bats, makes it a drain game. newbies get discouraged..I have to tell them (or show them) what this game can do.Will NEVER EVER leave my collection. With the sound turned up, in a dark room, well...it will get your heart pumping
