Big fan of EATPM and SS, have had them both for many years, will never leave, so I was intrigued when I heard they were going to do another one, (although I wish it wasn't Stern doing it). I respect both Dennis and Greg very much, but have to say I'm disappointed by the backglass art, and by the pretty standard playfield layout, really looks like a rehashed MM/AFM from that standpoint. Playfield art is quite good, (man that's a lot of inserts!!) and I'm pleased that they are bringing back the male voice from SS. The key point with this game will be does it capture the mood and magic of the first 2 games, they are a certain kind of silly fun that is crucial to the games success!!
No point really commenting of the pricing model, I hate it, I think we all should hate it, but judging by the number of people in this thread who have already ordered at nearly $10K, (for us Canadians it'll be just south of $15K ) they have no reason to change it until one of these flops big time!!
