Just for clarity, the game I played was the Retro Pin built in 2010, but it's identical to the early version. I played doubles on this pin with my wife and we both enjoyed it enough to play again. You have to shoot at the middle rounder to select different card values which show up on the backglass. The trick is to get the ball through the switch that controls the rotation. It's fun game!

An odd pin. Smaller than most, but has good play. The voiced timer stresses me out, but that makes it fun! The game I played did not have the "wings", so I don't know what they are for. The spinner target is cool as is the bribing the guards and the interactive backglass. I found it rather easy to get free games.

I'm glad I had the chance to play this pin. I really like the Anubis/Horus Targets and the ship that comes out of the pyramid is very fun. Challenging shot is up the middle into the pyramid and kept me focused. I'm not a huge fan of the DMD on some Gottlieb's, and this one seems to be the typical display. Still, I like this pin and wouldn't mind owning it!

Played this at the Pinball Hall of Fame and was surprised how fun it was! I like the options it gives you to choose a hint or a battle. Sinking the ship is fun and leads to multiball. Was surprised by the speed of the ball shooting out of the Dive hole, which caught me off guard more than once! Not much of a fan of the artwork on the backglass. I could just hear the actors arguing who's head would be bigger before it went into production.

I have to say the real fun is with the RPG on the back glass. Difficult to hit that very top target. Speech gets repetitive but the shots are challenging.

This was the first 2000 system I played and was surprised how it worked. Kinda neat with the video screen. Many of the challenges are the same as the original, so it's easy to figure out what to do. The play field is really dark and hard to follow the ball at times. I can understand why Bally started building these in order to advance pinball technology - and the game is fun - I just prefer more traditional pins.

I like the dead man's chest shot and the skill shot to drop the ball in the hole after it's plunged. I sank the ship, but the mech was not working. Shots are well lit, so it's clear what you have to do during play.

This pin is not too bad, but it doesn't make me want to stay on it for long. Probably one of the fastest play fields I've played on! The video clips are good and the fights are not too hard to accomplish, but I'm not much of an Iron Man fan, so it doesn't impress me all that much.

The spinning disks are obviously the highlight of this game. Sending the ball pretty much everywhere except where you expect it to be, creates a good challenge. The fan box on the back box is pretty cool too!

I like the whole, "get on stage" challenge and the drop hole between the girls' legs. So rock 'n roll! Tends to get a little repetitive with the music and some of the shots, but overall, it's a great play!

A good, solid pinball. The rotating trunk is definitely the centerpiece and plays a big part of the game. I like the challenges and goals, but the sounds do get a bit repetitive at times. Still, it's always worth a play.

This is such a fun pinball to play! The lighting is amazing and the goals are challenging. Would have to save serious coin to buy one, (or even find one), but to those who have, you are very fortunate!

I've played this pin several times, and I have a hard time getting into it, (I guess I'm not much of an Indy fan). I like how the ball lock works and the sound effects are right from the movie. Multiball has some good target challenges that kind of reminds me of Attack From Mars, which adds good gameplay. The widebody is a good addition and the artwork is good too. A friend of mine owns this pin, and I always spend time on it!

Flippers, flippers. Wow. I think 10 in all? Anyway, the best part is to get into the below playfield and keep the ball in play as long as possible. The real kicker, is that the flippers are the other direction, so the ball rolls forward, toward the backbox. Confusing at first, but very cool!

I know I'm probably a minority with TAF, but I've tried this pin many times, and I just can't get into it. I do like how Thing locks the ball, but not much else for me to say. I love horror themed pins, but I don't care too much for this one.

I like the skill shot that's right up the middle. Video mode is kinda cool too. I think the sound is lacking a bit, but it is a fun pinball!

This is one of the hardest pins for me to play. Difficult to get some goals completed, but the music is good - it just keeps playing the same songs again and again.

Ramps galore! I love the whole 50's horror drive-in theme! Getting into a fist-fight with another patron in the video mode is pretty cool. Many of my shots seemed repetitive, but it may not be the game. Very fun and worth a try!

There's a lot going on with this pin! Many different goals to shoot for, but the world tour is the best, IMO. If you see it somewhere, drop a few quarters in!

I'm not a Star Trek fan by a long shot, but this pin is really fun! The borg challenge is really good and I love the ability to choose bonus items during the ball plunge. I have yet to actually complete anything, but that doesn't change my opinion!

When I first played this pin, I was confused, but quickly figured it out. I didn't understand the whole 'interviewing witnesses' and how that was supposed to help, but it matter all that much. The roulette is cool! Loose it all (or not)! I like the slot too. Shooting the phone is easy until I need to do it, but that's not the pin's fault. Overall, it's a fun pinball!

Gunfight mode is challenging, but you get the chance to stall the ball before you take your (one) shot. The real points accumulate during multiball shootout. I really like the way the ball is plunged into the game and the addition of the DMD bonus while it's spinning around. I find this game a bit hard to play because I suck at aiming the ball, and the moving train is a bit stressful, but that's what keeps me coming back!

I really like playing this pin! The speech is hilarious (second only to Scared Stiff IMO). It plays a lot like Attack From Mars, so the rules are easy to follow, but I think it's a bit too similar to AFM. Even so, it's totally fun and if I see it out, I would stop to play it.

I love the theme, but that's about as far as it goes for me. Zero goals in the game except the DeLorean millions. Could have been so much better with time travel challenges to different years or maybe a beat Biff mode or skateboard ramp challenge of some kind. Many possibilities completely overlooked. Disappointing pin, IMO.

I just love this pin! The dancing boogiemen (thank you boys) always makes me laugh. It was my goal to just get those to dance. Didn't care about the high score, I just wanted to watch that over and over! The 3 million shot is stressful, but very fun. Probably will add this next to my Scared Stiff pin someday.

This is a really fun pin! Serving the customers makes for a great goal and "the rush" multiball adds a good challenge. The skill shot for the jukebox is a fun way to start the game. The customers complaining for their order crakes me up. Makes me want to go get a malt!

Very cool game! Lots of easy shots but the rules give it a better play and makes it a bit challenging at times.

By far my #1 favorite! It's the first pinball I purchased and is currently the only one I own. Tried this as a virtual game which led me to buying the real deal. Way better as a real pinball!

This is a great pinball! First played it as a virtual game, but a friend has a real one. Both are very fun, but the real thing is, well, the real thing!
