On the other hand isn't it Stern's best seller?
Anyway - some positives as we are supposed to be changing the guy's mind people (It's in the title of the thread!):
1. Great Art. Frankly, unbelievably great art in a licensed theme. Can you imagine the PF plastered with clip art photos of the ghost buster actors?
2. A lot of innovation and toys. People complain that stern doesn't innovate or include toys and then when they do all the people do is bitch about the toys and innovation.
A parital list:
A. Holographic toy showing ghosts. How awesome is that, it even fits the theme unlike DI.
B. Subways. It's one of the features people missed most on newer sterns. Ghostbusters has one!
C. Magna slings. Talk about innovation. They redesigned one of Pinballs oldest mechs to act like a ghost is playing with the ball. Who could hate on this?
D. A moving slimer toy that pops in and out of play. No mick on a stick here.
E. playfield pop ups. Fits the theme perfectly too!
F. Captive/newton balls that behave in a cool way.
G. A completely original layout.
Worst design? -- more like the most innovative and theme integrated design Stern has ever put out. Well, better than Avengers at least (disclaimer: I've never played the Avengers).
