Got a chance to log quite a few games today on a pro on location. Definitely see the allure that people were talking about. The game has good flow and has some really interesting strategy options. The sound is really well done and I love that bell sound. A few things can be improved which I'm sure they will be with the code update. Overall a very fun machine already with some great potential once wizard modes etc are added.

Creech is a game where the theme is really, really well done. I find myself laughing every time I hit the KISS shot. "Coommmee onnn...." "Oook" or something like that. There's enough to shoot for to make the shots varied and the multi-ball is a really cool concept. Overall it's a great game.

I was hard on T3 for a long time. I remember during tournaments I loathed to play it. I thought it was ugly and clunky. Guess what, over time, I found out I was wrong. Sure it might still be ugly, but it's a fun, fun game. Great rules and good wizard mode. I finally see past the averageness of the playfield and I can see all the great shots you have to make. I'd like to apologize to Arnold and Stern for being so quick to judge.

FG is fun but if it weren't for the theme the game wouldn't be nearly as good. If you're a family guy fan you'll love it, it's packed with humour from the show. That said it's spinner > TV + infinity with a little Stewie pinball thrown in. It's fun but it's not the best playing machine ever made.

FT is a game I always have to play in tournaments. It kicks my ass. I'm like two for my last thirty Monster Fish and that includes my last game where I got two. That and I've never even got a SUPER. I guess I need to go and grind it for a week straight and we'll see who's boss. That said the art is some of the best on any game, I just love it. The game has enough going on to keep it interesting and it really is a good machine.

For some reason I find myself coming back to JP. I've only played it on location but I will often choose to play it over many "higher rated" machines. The art and sound is pretty good the rules could use some tweeking. I wish you could bring modes into multiballs. But the two major jackpots are both fun as shit to aim towards. I've yet to get a super jackpot but I've gotten to System Failure a number of times. Oh, and the smart missile really adds some cool strategy to the game.

Phantom is a pretty decent game. It's definitely a one shotter, don't get me wrong, but that doesn't mean it's not fun. Great art and sound package for the time. The playfield art is some of the best of seen and the light shows and the audio is excellent. It's not deep but it's a gorgeous game that plays well enough.

RS is a game I was wary about at first. It has a ton going on, I'm pretty sure Lawlor tried to get every gimmick in pinball on one game. For that when you step up it's a pretty daunting task trying to learn the game. But when you get into it it's not nearly as complicated as it looks and it's a whole lot of fun. I find myself coming back on location so it's gotta be a good machine.

I really enjoy POTC. IMO it's one of the uglier sterns and that's saying something (I own WPT) I also hate the theme as I walked out of POTC. But inspite of all that I really enjoy the game and have really had a blast when I've played it.

BSD is another game that I think is good but no great. It's fun and will give you your pinball fix but aside from attempting to stack the multis it's fairly one dimensional. Shoot the left ramp. Doesn't mean it's not fun but there are quite a few machines I think should rank higher in the top 100.

The Shadow is a good game but IMO it's a little over-rated. I know everyone says its under-rated but I think that's pre the price point rising in the last few years. IMO there are quite a few that are much better off in the bang for buck list. Some don't even show up in the top 100. It's good and I play it all the time on location but usually on free night or in tournaments. If I'm paying it's not my first or even second choice.

SM is a great game. Had to change my rating after playing it more. it went from good to excellent in my books!

It's a good game. I haven't gotten into a ton but it just seems IDK clunky. I'm usually a huge fan of mode driven games but there's something about IJ that just doesn't hold me. I've played maybe 30 games but maybe I need to play more. I'm not above coming back and changing my review. It's a good game and I bet I'd love it if I owned it but it's rarely my first choice on location.

It's a Lawlor game and is a classic. Can't really go wrong. I'd love to play one in great condition. All of the TAF I have come across in the wild have been thrashed but I've still enjoyed myself. I can only imagine how much fun I'd have on a decent one.

Played a long session on Batman Dark Knight today. Definitely sold on the machine. I love stacking the Joker and the Scarecrow multi-balls. If you can do it when you've doubled one of the jackpots with the skill shot and maybe got a multiplier x or two it's like the say on the Sopranos machine, "Biig Poiints". That and the mini wizard mode, "Bat Signal Multi-Ball" is awesome I love that you can get greedy and run the jackpot size up before cashing in the multi, of course you always risk the drain! Super fun. Will put more time in for sure.

LOTR is awesome. only thing to hold against it is that it's a stern and suffers from looking a bit cheap. But I don't REALLY hold it against it. Gameplay more than lacks up for it. Very solid game.

Top tener for sure in my books. Great game, theme is executed well and the shots are fun. Excellent.

I loved Circus Volitaire from the first plunge. This game just has it. It's awesome to look at it and even better to play. It's got a ton of multi balls and great action.

This machine is a piece of art. The art on it is amazing. I can understand maybe not liking the art and the theme but it's impossible to not appreciate it. It's amazingly well done. That said the playfield feels very crowded and vision is a problem. That aside it's a great game and a whole lot of fun.

I'm lucky to have a LE right by my house. I think it might be one of the very few LE's in the wild. Anywho the LE at least is visually stunning. As soon as you step up to it you can tell it's a different game and when you start hitting shots and feel that thing rumbling you really get your money's worth. That said there are a few bugs as of the time I write this that are a bit annoying. But other than that it's a really good game.

Hard to argue with TZ. It's obviously a great game. It has a bunch of shots and is plenty deep but honestly I feel it's a little over rated. Don't get me wrong it's a great game and my rating shows it but there are plenty machines IMO that I'd play before TZ in a perfect arcade with all of the top 100.

Pretty big fan of The Sopranos. First few times I played it I wasn't the biggest fan but the more I played it the more awesome I realized the game was. It's theming is top notch and has some of the best call outs in pinball, " This kid can fucking earn..." I love it and could play it all day.

Awesome. I picked this game up after playing it twice and let me tell you this game is one of the most under rated ever. I agree with the sentiments that it's a little pug fugly but if you just look past that there's a great game lurking right under the surface. It's easy to have a casual game but it's also super deep at the same time. I think the theme works and the rules are awesome and the game is just bottom line fun. If only the playfield art was a little better. But then again if the art was better you'd be paying over 4k for this pin instead of 2!!

BOP is a great game. It's not the deepest no. It's basically a one shot game but that doesn't mean it's easy. A challenging game with great art that's just plain fun.

How white water isn't in the top ten I'll never know. This machine is incredible. It's not a step right up love it first ball style pin that's for sure, it's more of a once you get to know it you see it pin. Right away the rules might not be clear but once you learn them is when you really start to love white water. Every shot is fun, every mode is awesome, there are just so many different and fun shots. It's not your typical same shot over over style game. It's just really, really, well done.

I own this machine and have put quite a few hours in on it. Does it have a deep rule set? No. Does it have a ton of tough shots? Not really. Is it fun? You betcha'. High Speed II definitely lives up to it's name, this game is FAST. When you get those upper loops repeating you can sometimes barely even see the ball. Then there's the super charger that whips the ball around at super high speed. It's a great game and whole lot of fun enjoy it for what it is.

The problem with Ironman is how cheap it looks. The toys are literally toys, they look like cheap GI Joes you'd buy for your five year old nephew. But that really doesn't hurt the game too too much. When you get right down to it Ironman is just a fun game and I've found myself making countless trips to the movie theatre to play this machine.

I personally love Scared Stiff. I also love the fact the owning it isn't a pipe dream. It's a great machine with a very clear rule set and an attainable wizard mode. I understand that an attainable wizard mode might also hurt it's replay value but really when you're on level 8 scared stiff and that heart is beating so loudly and you have to hit that loop and then the crate you're not thinking about how many times you've done it before. You're lost in the moment and in the zone.

Monster Bash is one of those games that the first time you play it you know it's something special. The sound package and art might just be the best of any game ever made. Getting all the Monsters and starting Monster Bash is awesome no matter how many times you do it. The idea of all these monsters playing in a band is hilariously fun to me. I assume collecting the instruments and start Monsters of Rock is even better but that's a pipe dream for me. Just a great machine and I'd love to own it one day.

Just love AFM. It's almost perfect in my opinion. I love the theme, I love the rules, I love the sound package, I love the art. The game plays amazing and blowing the saucer up never gets old. I'd play this game all fucking day if I could.

Top machine for a reason. There's one at the pub on the corner by my house. I've only picked up pinball in the last three months but this is the machine that did it for me. I was lucky enough to watch the grand champion on the machine play and it showed me how much skill there was actually involved in pinball. From then on I was hooked. This machine has everything that makes a pinball game awesome. All the shots just flow, the rule set is easy to understand but difficult to complete, the sound and art package is incredible and the whole package together is just unbelievable. Just an awesome machine.
