    Quoted from ktownhero:

    Yup. People don't know what they are missing with Star Wars when they prejudge it the way they do. The game is unreal; it genuinely might be the best game code we've seen to date. Its incredibly deep and fun, and honestly is there a better ruleset for competition? It's so good.

    Funniest thing I ever heard. The best code by far is TWD
    Premium/LE and it's not even close. Star Wars code is a jumble multiplier mess.

    Quoted from phoenixpin:

    Another vote for Stern Star Wars.
    Context:
    - I understand the rules very well
    - I regularly get great scores and play it frequently
    - I love and prefer challenging games
    So why do I hate the gameplay?
    1. If you only define gameplay as layout, I’d point to the questionable design choices of plunge to a brick wall followed by left outlane, poor angle of the Death Star ramp, meaninglessly placed and irrelevant pop bumpers, and horseshoe shot that can be adjusted at home but is often center drain on location.
    2. If gameplay includes toys, then the weakness of Star Wars is obvious.
    The point is... flaws exist in it even if you think the code saves it.

    Nailed it. It’s a fun game just like BKSOR is a fun game. Most Ritchie games are fun. But they could have and should have been so much more.

    I love dirty harry. It is easily one of the most underrated games out there. Great theme too.

    It fucking sucks. And I love the theme.

    Quoted from SLAMT1LT:

    Ghostbusters. It has everything except the most important thing, gameplay. A gargantuan let down.

    It has that great call out that you get to hear over and over thanks to the linear rule set.
    "Who Brought The Dog" never gets old.
