What is the real lowdown on this game? I hear so many complain about it not being good and see a ton for sale. Is this game really a dud or is it just hard? Most complaints I am hearing are the magnets by the slings and flipper gap? I've also been reading about many fixes that needed to be done to make it playable. I am considering obtaining this game and haven't had a ton of time on it.

So its linear like say Roadshow? I owned roadshow and love the game, but it became old because you always start in the same place and progress pretty much one of two ways every game. I am not the greatest player, but I do like players games that are somewhat tough. For me TZ is a Diamond because it never gets old for me and its one of those games that I never get sick of. Many don't like it because it can be difficult for a casual player. I've collected long enough to know what I like and I prefer shorter game times and harder games that give me that one more game itch. I can't do the hour marathon games. Ghostbusters is an amazing theme and the game is absolutely beautiful. I just hear so much back and forth on how good it actually is.

Quoted from kklank:

Quoted from Eskaybee:
Unfortunately, the designer was too busy looking at other things on his computer other than re-fining the GB design. Awesome theme, outstanding art package, great sound; but lackluster design and a software package that is drowning with no life preservers in site puts this in the dud dept for me.
Be more specific with lackluster design. I actually like the design. The right ramp is a hard shot but I hit it all the time.
Dud? That's a stretch.

When I posted this I was hoping to get a better idea why exactly people do and don't like it. Some have written some great relies and some not so much. KKlank you have quite a diverse collection. Very nice mix of old and new.

This time I ignored the flipper gap and just played. Now I would buy one if I could afford it. Really enjoy playing it. If I bought one I would probably go with carrot flippers though.

Maybe someone will be brave enough to put Williams lightning flippers on it. lol
