IMO, it is key that Dwight makes the code much better (yes, its good now, but not epic like it should be). If he doesn’t I won’t be buying another game coded by him. Game prices are too high to not have it much deeper than it is or rather without having a great deal more show content with modes added. The show itself is the reason why most people buy this game, right? Although it shoots so well and has a unique and fun lower PF, people buy this game for the theme and beloved TV series. Dwight has not included much show material, other than end of ball sequences that really don’t count much imo. I want to see modes attached to a great deal more show material. I know Dwight can do it, because he did it on SW, that has lots of show material included in the game, as modes. We pay in Australia, $12,250.00 for a NIB Stern premium. That is way too high to just be a simple coded, shallow TV mode game experience, for just stepping up for a quick play now and again. I’ve heard apologist say Stern was going for a simple game, sorry but that kind of poor excuse thinking angers me at these high prices.
If Stern’s goal was actually to create a simple easy to pickup and play game, then give us a simple easy to pay half price tag and I won’t complain. I hear people in the USA complaining about paying $7250 for a Stern premium (street price), but try paying $5,000.00 more for the same game! Yes I know exchange rate difference, but it was not that long ago, when the Auzzie dollar was worth more than the US dollar. A dollar to us is still as important and valued as it is to those in the USA. My point is, games at these high prices should be epic code wise, not just simple or shallow, which Munsters is widely known for around the world.
Code is probably the most important aspect of almost any game in order to last in the home environment. Having said all that, I’m sure everyone here knows we love our Munsters game. Just want us and other people to feel we got out monies worth and have a game that is hard to find, rather than a game that is loaded with unsold inventory (new and used) easily found everywhere and even difficult to sell. That is a travesty for Munsters, since it really does have it all, except lots of coded TV show modes with material depth. Come on Dwight, do the game justice. It is very important to Dwight’s legacy in the business to make Munsters epic. He has done so well with all his other games. Love his code on SW. It is epic, so I know he can do it for Munsters too. This will only make good business sense for Stern to make this game shine. There still are loads of people standing on the sidelines waiting to buy a game that has everything else going for it. Munsters should be epic code wise, just like Batman 66. Lyman’s legacy is huge because of it. Please Dwight, do the same thing, because we know you can!
