Houdini is fun, especially with the newest software and a few tweaks including the new power supply. It is also really well built, has great sound, music and art. To each his own. Not a top ten pin, but a lot of fun none the less. Price aside, I would rather play Houdini than any DI, TH or WOZ. Not bad for a first offering from AP. And please, do not compare this game to Thunderbirds LOL.
