Hey guys!
I'm doing the second pinball showdown (the first was Scared Stiff vs EHOH. Link to that topic is at the end of post), this time, it's Attack from Mars versus Revenge from Mars
What do you think, which one is better? AFM, or RFM?
Thanks in advance,
Peter

Here's link to my first Pinball showdown:

I predict this will be the most lopsided poll in Pinside history,

AFM is awesome, RFM sucks ass. It’s repetitive and dark. You heard the same quotes over and over.

This is going to be a blood bath.

I think I’ve seen this thread topic started at least 4 or 5 times since I’ve Ive been on pinside. Do we really need to go through this again?

AFM is waaaaaay better, but RFM is really fun for what it is. With that being said, it’s like comparing apples to oranges.

ATM is waaaaaay better, but RFM is really fun for what it is. With that being said, it’s like comparing apples to oranges.

Well you do need to visit the ATM before you can buy a AFM

Both are fun, but I've always enjoyed AFM a bit more.

There's a reason why there's a big price difference between the two games.

I’ve owned both Afm easily!

You’re describing attack from mars too

There is no doubt that Attack from Mars is awesome. However, revenge from Mars is no slouch. It’s a lot of fun for the price.

I really love RFM for what it is... and at the same time get why its so divisive... I mean ... its small, repetitive and weird. AFM wins this handily... no contest IMHO.

I've had both. Still have AFM. Bought RFM to try to "scratch the itch" without paying the admission price for AFM, which at the time was $8000+. There was no "write a check and get NIB" remake yet.

I loved it for about 2-3 months, and then realized I needed my grail game, which was AFM.

That being said, I do have a soft spot for RFM and will put a few quarters in when I see one to play. It is really fun for what it is, but comparing it to AFM is like trying to keep a candle aflame in the midst of a hurricane. No chance.
