Two car-themed games that aren't the most common titles.... which one FTW?
Never played Hot Wheels but just wanted to say that Mustang is a very nice game. Totally underrated imo.
I have not been able to play a Hot Wheels, but I absolutely love Mustang. It is an underrated gem of a game! Also do not discount the pro...the differences moving up to prem/LE are not very substantial on this one. Very fun, fast, flowy, and unique. The code is varied, has good depth/breadth, and a good sense of humor. It is easy and fun to customize with you own music mix too.
Not a knock on HW at all...I just haven't gotten to play one yet. I hear very good things about it though, and it looks like a blast from watching streams. I think you will be happy either way!

Completely agree with this. I also haven’t been able to play a Hot Wheels so can’t compare them, but Mustang is a very fun game that’s underrated by most. A lot of people are put off by the theme or lack of toys, but if you put in some playing time you’ll find it’s a really fun game.
I own a hot wheels...
I mean both are car themed but the HW Pin is offering a lot more than cars. Playing modes you have to battle against dinosaurs, snakes and a gorlilla . It comes with shaker, knocker and artbades, some more cars to modify.
The light show and sound are amazing ! And the animations are really good quality, they are kinda stop motion and taken from hot wheels city series on youtube.
It has around 140 rgb leds, so the colour flow is really outstanding. The game i really fast and the flow is amazing.
I think its a great machine.
I also like the the mustang pin, it is really underrated for sure. The music is awesome and changes with the car mode you play.
If you are looking for a serious car pin i would go for mustang, because of the price.
If you are looking for a funny not as serious car pin with all technical stuff up to date, hot wheels is a great choice.
I like the fun factor of the game, for absolutely serious people it's maybe too childish.
But the biggest problem, most of the people dislike the machine never played it.
I bought a HW after playing it once on location. Actually it was because my wife, who doesn't doesn't play pinball often, thought it was fun and entertaining.
My initial reaction is that it is designed for the casual player and is more accessible and visually appealing to a more broad population. I haven't spent much time on it to learn the rules, but the shots are solid and fun. A big step up from Houdini and Oktoberfest.
Mustang is a decent Stern title that you don't see that often. I crushed it in a tournament a couple of years ago, so I always play it when I see it. However, it doesn't really stand out to me.
I had to go with Hot Wheels simply because Mustang has the bowl ramp that I hate to no end.
Hot Wheels all the way. The guy saying it is a game for a casual player hasn't played enough yet. The game theme is casual by nature but under the glass, there is a great shooter's game. Would make an excellent tourney game. Best skill shot in pinball. The progressive tachometer rules with the turbo boost shot. A handful of fun MB modes. Really nice fit and finish on the game. It is definitely AP's best offering to date. Now I miss mine!
