I don't want to slam Mando, I was pretty excited to play it initially, but it just did not click with me. Shooting up the center just does not feel rewarding, and is way overused.
SW however is very underrated imo. I think the option for mode stacking to default on was a bummer, but it can be disabled, or you can just choose to only play single modes at a time. I think SW actually had some of the most well done modes of recent machines. Theme integration with the video, sounds, and music is top notch.
The multiplier system I have a love-hate thing going on with - it's fun, but it can be annoying, and the constant need to shoot the standup to avoid your multiplier timing out is both unique, and frustrating if you like to trap up and play controlled like I do. You can ignore it, but where's the fun in that? Moving a high multiplier around quickly to make huge scoring shots is really awesome when you nail it though.
