I bought a Houdini to play until my MBr gets here. It will be a magical day when it arrives. lol
Quoted from jbug:
Let us know how you like Houdini. Would you keep the game in the long run? I considered Houdini also but after watching gameplay videos and seeing many shots not making the ramps, I was turned off. Another thing (if I'm correct) is having to hit shots in a particular order. The odds of doing that for someone with basic skills are not good and would contribute to someone walking away after a couple of games. Love the theme though. to death though.
I was hesitant about buying it with all the complaints and such, but glad I did. My wife and I love the game. I would say that like a lot of games, we had to play a few times to figure things out. I typically love the faster flowing pins, Houdini is a little more "stop & go" but it's been great to play. To complete many of the modes there are certain shots that have to be made in a particular order but you don't get penalized if you hit something wrong, you just don't get the full reward until the next proper shot gets made. I have a large collection so for me I don't see it leaving. Very difficult if you only have room for a small number of pins, something always has to go for the new one to come in.
My LE was supposed to ship today. Ordered it around the 1st of November. My birthday is Saturday so should be a great present for me .
