I’ve stated this in other threads, but it’s worth repeating: many MMR’s shipped with the wrong flipper coil plungers. They were 1/8 in. too long. This causes the flipper to not reach the correct end position, and can make it feel weak or weird. Install the right plunger, and it feels a ton better.
Aside from that, there is a slight difference in feel between the B/W games and CGC games. Not going to get into “why”, cuz everyone has a theory - but it is slightly different. It never bothered me on MMr cuz I never owned an original, but I have owned MB for about 7 years & when I played MBr, I could really notice the difference. That, along with my strong dislike of the colorbomb lightshow caused me to cancel my MBrLE order and just stick with my original.
I think the remakes are great for what they are - a way to get a nice machine without overpaying for a used one....but if I had both, I’d probably veer toward keeping the original.
