Let me clarify my post above, I was not comparing ACNC to TWD from the standpoint that it will be that great! I hope it will, but it doesn't need to be.
I agree with Kman that you really can't LOVE it or HATE it at this point. How many people have really even played it with updated code?
What i do LOVE about it:
1) The Artwork is sensational
2) Great looking LCD integration and theme
3) The "potential" for GREAT coding with Fozzy and Bowen
All the above make it worth owning for me.
As for "geometry"? Let me take BM66 for example, is it a "geometrical masterpiece". Uh not even close. In fact its relatively elementary and the shots are easy but the game is GREAT, why?
DIFFERENT is good in my book, that's why my Ac/dc and SM Ritchie pins are gone. I don't give a F about "flow". Every pin has "flow" when you hit your shots.
People that don't like it or dropped out for whatever reasons, its always good to hear the negatives in the eye of others but I don't really give a F, I'm sure I'll love it when i get to play it in home!
So let's all rock and roll, there is no right or wrong, only shades of both and somewhere in between.
