Quoted from Leachdude:
Thinking of joining the club. Whats the overall opinion of the new code? I have not played it much even with old code. I do like music pins. Have owned most of them at one time or another and currently have Metallica and Iron Maiden.
The thing that turns me off on this game is the layout is just like KISS and that is one of the music pins I owned and did not really care for. I think it was more of the code, and the stupid star child shot.
How long are typical game times on the game?
Really depends on how skilled a player you are, but the finale is not a gimmie, especially the Final Tour, and then there is completing it which is obviously more difficult than just getting there.
As far as the KISS layout being nearly the same, it is, but strangely doesn't exactly feel like it. That's not to say I would want the two side by side, I wouldn't, but Aero feels like it's own thing, and I don't think of KISS at all when I'm playing it.
Lastly, the code. It's very refined now and honestly pretty excellent overall. The old code was okay because it was technically complete, but it had some bugs/shortcomings, and some ''do or die'' style of rules in it, mainly with the way you couldn't get to final tour unless you completed Sweet Emotion, Elevator and Toy Box multiball, which was too hard and not fun because it didn't save your progression on Sweet emotion, so it could be quite the grind to attempt it again.
While it still doesn't save Sweet Emotion, it plays more like Tron now in that department upon reaching the finale, where if you did complete, great, you get rewarded with points, but if you didn't, you have the opportunity to complete it in the medley wizard mode to progress further.
All in all, it's a sweet game, I don't really have any complaints about it.
