I also love this game. It is the newest game in my hometown, and just down the block, so I feel spoiled. I have probably played 150 games in the past month. I usually only score about 8-10 million. My best is 30 mil or so. Not even good enough to enter my initials. That said, I really enjoy it, and keep going back for more. The lights blow me away. I can't say I fully understand the modes, though I usually play 'Prime Directive' because it is at the top of the pyramid, and has the most options for shots. If anyone has any recommendations for what modes to play, I would be most grateful.
