Quoted from Jediturtle:
I really think this varies machine to machine. I played it at MGC last year and was so disappointed. Just as you guys have said...clunk city, everything felt cheap and crappy, and of course no code. It was terrible. Then I spent about an hour on it at Expo a few months back and turned around completely. It was smooth and solid...like it was a completely different game. I thought it might have been a fluke, or I was just too tired to notice, but then I played it again on location in Waukesha a couple weeks ago and again, absolutely loved it. Never once thought the word clunky, played like a dream. I can't believe this is the same game I played at MGC...it was a total transformation, software of course, but physically as well. It must be in the machine set-up. Hopefully it's easy to tweak to play as well as the one at Expo and the one at Sunset Bowl...because after playing that one I came home and ordered one. I loved everything about it.
I agree with Chris Plus I same him destroy the game and grand champ it.
