My thoughts after purchasing a GB Pro and playing intensely for a full 24-hours.
-The game attracted my family and neighbors to the game room. Great theme!
-It's like playing football in the Big 12. Very high scoring!
-The storage facility multi-ball with the shaker motor is awesome. Super awesome!
-I agree that it's a completely different style of game. This makes it a very good compliment to my Metallica Pro.
-I made a few of the adjustments suggested in the club. I moved the left/right posts and also reduced the flipper/kicker speed. I adjusted the scene continuation before we played the first game. That didn't seem right to me. All the suggestions worked great!
-Lighting, sounds and music are great. A shaker is a must for this one!
-The right ramp is TOUGH on the Pro. This does not bother me at all. I feel accomplished when I make it.
-The flipper gap didn't really bother me. Although, it was tough compared to the other machines I have played. I kept trying to hold my ball with the flipper, which caused many drains due to the short flippers. I just need to train myself not to do it! I think I'm going to get the center post simply for my daughter. My boys do not want me to get it but I really want her to like the game. I'm not sure if post or the longer flippers are a better option. She loves the movie so I want her to love the game.
-The one thing that does slightly annoy me is that I can't see the skill shot letters. I have to stand on my toes!
-Did I mention the storage facility multi-ball is awesome?
Overall, I give this machine a B+/A- rating. I'm super glad I made the purchase.
