Quoted from Pauz21:
So throwing this in here. What's the current scoop with this game? Any you tube reviews are old and not positive. Has the game improved with code updates. Considered a pro but never gone further because other than art I've never heard a positive word about it.
I would echo and expand on the replies to your question. It is a beautiful game. It is funny. The shots are fun, and flow well. The integration of the show to the game is top notch. It wasn't even on my radar when I stumbled upon it. I drove a couple of hours to try out a Monster Bash. Munsters was sitting next to it, and to my surprise, I found it to be just as much, if not more fun.
I only have two pins: Munsters and JP. They are very much yen and yang. I thoroughly enjoy playing both of them, as do guests. In fact, guests typically prefer the Munsters. I always start them on that, playing a 2P game. I walk them through the shots (especially the Marylin skill shot on ball launch) while playing my first ball. "You made that look so easy!" is the typical comment. On my end, I play Munsters to warm up for my JP. Since trading an old SS for Munsters, my skills have improved greatly. Because you can go from shot to shot to shot very quickly, it is easy to work on various skills while just playing a game. My JP doesn't flow like that. There are a lot more obstacles and shots that are tight.
I would consider it a good thing that a game isn't that popular when it comes to purchasing games you are interested in. You can probably get a great deal on one. Until other people start buying my games for me, I don't give a crap if other Pinsiders are impressed with my collection. I have pins for my enjoyment, and for that of my family and guests. I'm happy to help people, share things I've learned, and be a part of the community, but at the end of the day, I'd rather play than type. If you are on the fence, find one to play if you can. I know that might be a challenge in SK, but it looks like there are a few in Calgary
