Quoted from TOK:

All I've wanted for the last 5 years is this theme. I've loved the band since I was a kid, and watched games like Metallica (another dream theme of mine) turn out to be spectacular. I've now played Iron Maiden a bunch of times, and the playfield feels empty. A couple of paper thin plastic Eddies, an anti-climactic center shot and a half sized flipper that doesn't add up to much of anything.
I decided to give it more of a chance after the initial disappointment of playing it at Allentown, then found it on location in Philly. $25 later it still just feels kind of lame and I'm really bummed about that. My wife lost her mind over AC/DC Luci at Allentown, and I actually find myself agreeing with her after playing both side-by-side. I know I'm comparing a Premium to a Pro, but the Iron Maiden Premium still doesn't seem to compete. Didn't think I'd be saying this in a million years, but it looks like AC/DC is the next game in the lineup. What a fumble.

Look uh, don’t take this the wrong way, but how much did you have to drink when you played it? I would give it another try if I were you

Quoted from perryd:

maybe not. I have only put about half dozen games on it and I didn't think it was the greatest game ever....Sorry. I know I need to put more games on it however to see how well I like it. I just think I had very high expectations after reading everyone else's review on it and when I first played it, it was somewhat of a let down...

What’s your #1? Maybe it’s “too much” ?

I figured it out - he played This Stern Maiden:

Quoted from rolandthoms:

The kids on the school bus wearing Iron Maiden shirts used to throw salami sandwiches at my “Depeche Mode” Head. I can still feel the mustard crusted in my hair. Placed an order for a IM premium yesterday

That is a good story! I’d buy this game even if it was a Depeche Mode theme!

Quoted from RJL:

I saw Iron Maiden live at the Cleveland Agora when I was a kid. They were OK, i never became a fan. Played the game at a local vendor's open house and had to have it. Now I can't get the songs out of my brain.

What happened at that show? That must have been a disaster for you to say “they were OK...”.
