Not a Maiden fan, didn't think I'd like the game. Man was I wrong. Everyone has different ideas of what makes a great pinball, evidently Keith Elwin and I are on the same page. Best new pin I've played in years. It doesn't need any goofy toys, it just plays extremely well.

Quoted from hoby1:

Can’t say I agree with the OP 100% but I’m am definitely NOT wow’d by this game.
It is a great shooter but the few toys that the premium has are meh at best
As I die hard Maiden fan I will most likely buy one but I am really swaying towards a pro.
A friend of mine said it best. It reminds him of TNA with two ramps
Shoots great but I was hoping for soooooo much more

I played TNA and IMDN back-to-back for the first time at Zapcon. After playing Maiden I never went back to TNA. These two games have nothing in common.

Quoted from PW79:

I know how you feel
This happened to me w/Star Wars
My pinball butthole still hurts from it
Woe is me

Elwin could have so easily be assigned to SW instead of IMDN...

Quoted from hoby1:

I think a SW Prem's my next purchase. Was going to get a Maiden but I like SW way more

I thought there was no comparison between the two after playing them--Maiden was the much better playing pin.

Quoted from TheLaw:

Well everyone has their opinion. I like them both and don;t find one way above the other.
For sure they are both way over ACDC

Pinside is a great place to obtain opinions--one of its plusses. I may be in the minority, but I was really disappointed with Star Wars--I'd rather play AC/DC.

Quoted from Russell:

I agree with this. However, IMDN is a long playing game. For tournaments, they are going to have to make modifications to make it harder.

That won't be too hard.

Quoted from tamoore:

The OP would have built a different game is all.

That's easy enough to conceptualize for the OP. The Star Wars layout could have very easily been Iron Maiden--would that have been better? I think the Star Wars fans would take that trade...

Quoted from TOK:

Or they both stink, and it's two wasted licenses.

I agree with you on one of the two. That being said, I'm willing to give SW another chance when I see one--maybe I haven't played it enough.
