Right ramp is not that difficult.
Magna Slings - it follows the theme of ghosts that grab your ball and toss it around. Get in the spirit of the game and approach it with a sense of humor.
Hidden stand up targets. It the Scoleri brothers. They're supposed to bust your balls and keep you from scoring. They only pop up because you miss right lane and keep hitting the captive ball. Get over it.
Not knowing score - this sucks. Terrible flaw in coding.
Wider flipper gap - makes the game tough. I love tough games.
Gozer sdtm- hmmm... realign your scoop.
Unbalanced scoring- I don't think it's too bad. Multiball scoring is huge but it's also a very difficult multi to get activated.
The LE should have the magna slings turned off if it was a league night for sure. They're just too unpredictable. But at home playing with friends for dollars, I just love it because of the theme.
Play better. Just kidding.
It can be a brutal game but that's why it stays in my collection and won't leave for a long time.

Quoted from Dr_Gonzo:

My sense of humor when I'm having a good game and get magna drained is zero. Almost every time it happens the ball will do a little spiral loop in front of the flippers and gone. Drives me crazy. I've got no problem with tough games, in fact that makes tough games more of a keeper for me. I'm playing it on route, so I'm limited on adjustments. Most shots up right ramp fail halfway. I've tried to like it but really it just seems to have poor design.
The poll results and my thumbs up/ down are interesting. Seems people feel strongly one way or another.

Ohhhhh yeah I can feel your pain if its being played on route. This is strictly a game for the home or Pro only for on route.
Because I can start a new game anytime I want.

Quoted from PinLen83:

When the ghosts are angry, they want to drain your ball. It was intended that way (when they’re lit).
Scoring isn’t unbalanced. Each player has equal ability to exploit “unbalanced” traits.
After almost 3 years (and between 2 machines over 2000 plays), this title still excites me despite a broken final wizard mode, and various bugs in this “finished” code. Dwight is an idiot for claiming this game is finished. I’ll never own another one of his titles.
I’ll just leave this here as a token of my satisfaction with GB[quoted image]

Holy moley! Nice flippin score dude! Impressive!

You know what we need?
We need someone to start a Ghostbusters vs. Munsters thread! That should get everybody riled up. Lol.

I completely understand why people absolutely hate this game but for most of those same reasons I absolutely love the game.
Go figure.
Hey it's pinball, it's a lot better than talking about work. Just sayin.
