Quoted from cscmtp:
Guys I've been on the fence about making this our next pin for months. My fear is that it might be too simple/shallow to have staying power in a 5 pin lineup. Has anyone had it for several months with lots of plays, and if so, are you still loving it as much as when you got it? I ask because when I first got my Smaug LE I loved it...but got tired of it within a few months (just not much to shoot for in that pin) Thoughts?
I've had it for a while and we play it as much as the others. It's getting back seat to SW now, but we still fire it up and play it. We're decent players, but not super so it's a challenge for us to get through all the mode starts or to actually complete several modes in a game. It's still a LOT of fun and doubt I can ever complete all the modes for the final wizard.
I kind of feel it as a chill pin, it's not telling a story. There are songs for the modes and you complete them different ways, and of course the multiballs to get going. It's different pinball to me than my GB. I'm not having to listen to the same mode starts etc, but rather get to pick a song and listen to it while I play. If I'm going for the biggest scores I tend to pick the same songs early on, but not necessarily even in the same order and the extra touches for the auto saves, crank it up, multiballs etc add to it.
You can't stack modes (other than with a multiball to complete) so this has some extra staying power for me too.
I'm pretty happy with all my pins right now, but I may be getting rid of another one, and it won't be AS yet.
