I played the ones at Expo. They didn't feel anything like Stern games. Which I like, for the record, nothing wrong with how Stern games play. Thread premise is ridiculous.
The only issues with the ones at Expo were:
- Leveled like ass, super shallow playfield meant they didn't play well (and Rick knew it since he complained about the people bitching. FFS man, take the 5 minutes to fix it!)
- Screen tearing on the LCD, Lloyd has confirmed a fix for this is coming
- Translite was a little washed out. I'm super picky about that stuff though.
Otherwise they played fine, and the fact that Stern is putting them together just means that an experienced factory did it, instead of some fools who'd never assembled a game. Pointless to hate on it.
