I hate to say I'm not a big Metallica fan so I didn't really know what to expect. My first impression was a WOW when I saw the artwork. I really like the cartoon art for a change. It's nice change of pace from digital photography.
We played several games and I have to say this is a fun pin. It's a classic 80's style pin with ramps added. I love the in line drops! This is a great machine for a casual player. Think Iron Man for speed and depth and AC/DC for music and fun, great combination. Sparky had me laughing out loud, probably the best DMD animations, ever. This is truly a great crossover machine. Metallica fans will obviously love but it's a good enough pin to appeal to the players that aren't neccesarily Metallica fans as well. I can't wait to put some more time in on it.
This Friday night is our monthly pinball tournament at L+G. The official Lauch Party will be Friday, June 7th. Hope to see some of you there.
