Quoted from usandthem:
As my dad used to say, "All sizzle and no steak". Now, I'm not going to suggest that GNR is ALL sizzle, but I was certainly dazzled by the light show the first few times I played it. On subsequent visits to the arcade, I liked it less and less. Like most JJP games, it doesn't "feel" great. Shots aren't very exciting. The light show and art are second to none, yes. However, once you get beyond the razzle dazzle, shooting this pin is average.
I had the complete opposite reaction. I bought one as trade bait for jp premium. Didnt work out as a jp came my way via cash. Jp is gone.
Gnr is still here. The so called honeymoon stage was more like a one night stand without the sex. Gnr was just to much woman for me and I had no idea what to do. Problem was I married her now and she wouldn't leave. Because of this I got use to her beauty and flair and I became less intimidated. Finally I got up the nerve to put my fingers to her buttons and she came alive. Alive like no other. Her lights and sounds directed me to her most exciting modes and targets. The silver ball rolled up her ramps and around her playfield, eventually finding that sweet vuk in the middle. She erupted into sweet sounds and colors and before we new it we were in the throes of 'multi'ball heaven. One ball would drain.. but to my surprise I was still going and going. As the last ball drained I felt like a man of 20. So I rolled over and did it again.
