Didn't expect much from this when I bought it. Now it's the most played game in my lineup. Pinball in it's purest form.

Fun game, but gets very repetitive. Not for a small collection.
Dots and animations aren't that great, but for the 1st DMD it did well.

Great game for the price.
Cabinet art is a slight let down. But that's a minor issue.
More importantly the playfield art is actually good compared to other DE/Sega games.
Make sure to upgrade the backbox speakers to 4" coaxial ones. Easy to do. Best 30$ you can spend. Stock speakers will hurt your ears.
You might also have to do something about those flipper coils (at least to the right one), because you can rarely make the left ramp with the stock ones. And it will be impossible after two games when the coil has warmed a bit. How did this end up in the production like this?

A bit difficult for new and average players. Very narrow shots and ramps.

Strong overall package. Not the deepest rule set but for the time it was released, it's fine.
Huge improvement in the dots/animations compared to T2 and party Zone.

Facelift version of the game (With factory led and new SAM backbox) looks very good. Old whitestar version looks really cheap.
Big respect for the band members for the effort of doing the custom callouts and comments.

Art and music is a matter of taste, but I think they did very well. One of the best playfield layouts there is.

"Only" one toy (sparky), but man is it well made.

Very good looking stern. They finally decided to get rid of those awful photoshop faces from the playfield.
Plays very fast and has a great flow. Very good dots and sounds.

Some did not like the cabinet art. I think it's spot on.

Man I love this one. I wasn't a deadpool fan, but I liked arcade/fighting aspect, which seems to divide opinions.
Layout is refreshingly new.

One month after it's release the code is already very good. Stern is doing a great job!

Zombie Yeti art is 11/10.
Sound Music 10/10
Animations 10/10

Not so good:
Shots/flow 7/10 - A bit clunky and choppy.

Other games look pretty cheap after this (Iron Maiden and Ghostbusters being exception).

Great theme! Who doesn't like pirates?

Great art package. Nice animations and sound/music.
A slight disappointment for me was that it plays like System 11 and not like other DMD's.

It's a cheapest B/W DMD for a reason. There's not much to shoot for. Very shallow ruleset.
Sound quality is below average.
Gameplay is hard and ball times can be very short.
I really wanted to like it. I even bought a second one. But that left from my collection just as fast.

If you like fast gameplay and soundtrack then this is it. Movie was a flop but pinball came out just fine.
Those were the days where they actually made an effort with playfield toys (movable CyberGlove).
A lot of fun for the price.

Great overall package for the price. One of the best B/W backglasses. I liked the playfield art too. Lots of stuff on the playfield since it's a widebody. Fast and challenging.
The deadworld feels pretty useless without the mod. It could have been implemented better.
Excellent sounds and DMD.
Guitar soundtrack can be annoying to some, but I liked it.

I personally don't like the feel of those early Sterns. Does not feel even close as good as the older B/W games.

On paper this looks promising: 2 major playfield mechanisms (roulette and slot machine), drop targets, 4 slingshots, ball locks, spinner etc.

Art quality was one of the worst I have seen. Print quality on the playfield and especially on the cabinet was pretty bad. Did not like the backglass quality either. Washed out colors and bad contrast. Looked like it was printed on a plain copy paper.
For a 2001 pin, you would expect a better sound quality too.

Atleast ruleset was decent.

You can see that this was a low budget build. But then again it does not cost much today either.
So if you are not picky, getting it for your 1st pinball machine, why not...

It's tough but fair. But I guess this makes you a better player too. With lightning flippers, playtimes can be short.
I like the flipper and gameplay feel the most on this era (Fliptronic). Later WPC-S feels a bit strange.

Theme integration and mood/atmosphere is excellent. I like the (blood)red DMD. Ruleset is not very deep, but there is enough challenge for an average player to try to stack those 3 multiballs.

Very nice art. Only exception maybe being the backglass. But that's not bad either.

The best DataEast backglass and playfield art. I generally don't like DE playfield art at all, but this one was an exception probably because of the cartoon style. Sound quality could have been better.

Supercharger is really cool! But what comes to playfield there's not that much to shoot for. I liked the dots and music. But the playfield art is a bit too retro/comic.

Very nice overall package. Sound/music/speech and animations are excellent! I liked the art too.
