Quoted from MrClutch:
This is the first pin I've every purchased brand new and it was pretty hard to pull the trigger. I'm a relative noob when it comes to pinball and I've only owned one other machine (TSPP). I have kids and a wife and the new Marvel movies are one of the few things all of us enjoy together so this seemed like the perfect time to jump in head first. I saw the photos and knew it would have enough on the play field to keep everyone interested.
We played a little bit of the launch code and then quickly updated to .72 where I really noticed the call-outs and how much they add to the experience. The kids and wife enjoy playing it but seem to struggle a bit with really quick drains. They're used to that having played TSPP so it wasn't a big deal. Especially because of the amount of audio/video coming out of the machine at all times.
I'm about as happy as I could have imagined I'd be and I'm glad I bought it. Reading through the other thread had me a little worried but I had to remind myself that I'm a novice player and am trying to buy a game that appeals to my family. The pin is fast, loud, bright, and fun.
The next step is to figure out what protective mods need to be installed and where to find them.
Congrats MrClutch! I am very happy with my pro-buying it sight unseen without even playing was a bit of a speculation,but I am pleased with it.
ULEKstore has some plastic protectors that I think are great quality and design for the slings,return lanes, right orbit,Rocket and pops.
This game is very challenging,I had a 45 minute game and only completed 3 modes.It will take some time to get to the wizard modes. I have had a TSPP for a couple years now and the very best I have done is complete 3 of the puzzle pieces to get to the wizard mode- i know this will never be achieved by me, but it is still fun to try.
Enjoy your new game.
