Just install the Oursler special on TWD. I personally love the flipper center post. Adds another level of chaos whether you should trust it or not. It really is like 50/50 on saves and isn't as cheap as it appears.

Quoted from northvibe:

I remember Metallica at release and pinside had so much hate against the game.... w/ new code as of today, people are loving it and stern is selling the crap out of it.

The issues with Metallica were purely code though.

TWD has more than that to deal with; a poor art & sound package. No code update is gonna fix that. I'm just not a fan, never will be. I can't stand looking at it. I think it was just a poor idea for a theme. Popularity of a theme doesn't always dictate an instant win when translated into a pin.

Quoted from QuarterGrabber:

This of course is just your opinion and not a fact at all.

Of course it is not fact. Subjectivity is never fact. I hate the art and sound on TWD. My opinion. I made that pretty clear in my post it was opinion. And in contrast to your opinion, I don't mind the art on Star Trek at all. It is a bit over-the-top with the gradients and rainbows, but not terrible.

I don't think twd's layout is bad, I really like the uniqueness.

I like the fact it isn't cookie-cutter normal Stern layout stuff as well. I just can't get past the art and sound.

Ahhhh. yeah. the art you can't fix but the sound "could" be. I think with polished code and call outs from the show, it could sell a ton more.

Agreed. I could look past the art if the sound package was legit, then I'd probably enjoy it. The gameplay isn't as rough as people make it out to be. It isn't a very flowy game, but games don't have to be packed with flow to be enjoyable. I like both. Generally if there is more than 1 glaring issue, I can't get into a game though. I'll take hideous art with awesome sound and gameplay any day.

Try to play one with the custom actors voices pinball browser rom. You might like it.

I can already imagine it is light-years better.
