Here are my impressions after having played the game a bunch of times and having some guests play it for the evening:
-It is impossible to fairly evaluate this game at this time. The software is sooooo early. I've never had software this early on any machine I've bought before. I am ok with this, the game will be fine in my collection as it evolves but I can see how people who play it on location or a few games somewhere are going to be left thinking "blah", because normally a game with software like this would only be seen inside the development office.
Having said that, I can offer the opinions on these things that will not be changing (much):
-I love the artwork and themeing of the machine. It looks awesome. I'm happy my LE features Batgirl.
-The style of music used in the game is a fun change from everything else I own.
-After I refastened the Batmobile screws, there has been no other tweaks needed.
-I sold a BDK and replaced it with this game and feel they play like 2 different games. I know some other people think otherwise, but that's my opinion. Just as 2 fan layout games can have the same shots but theme and programming makes them totally different or how toys can be reused.
So, the verdict for me is.... there is no verdict, but I am hopeful Lyman has all the pieces to make something really fun and special.
