I Agree it looks great. And looks fun to play. Innovative, with lots of toys and features. But greatest game of all time? Nope.
But I bet it ends up high in the top 10.

The thing that's going to stop it from the #1 spot is the theme. If it was an original pirate theme it would probably crush everything. But being based on movies that aren't the greatest or that memorable is going to hurt it's rating.

BM66 is the greatest pop culture non original theme of all time in my mind. As Adam Wests portrayal of batman and it's celebrity villians are classics.

But Stern failed on making it a great pinball machine.
Code can't fix bad design.
Most expensive, yes.
