I'm not sure if it's the freshness of the game, but I have a hard time deciding to play my Met over AS. The game is just a pure blast to play. I like choosing my mode right off the bat, which makes it seem really varied. Metallica, I feel like I'm going after the four main targets over and over again. Toy box And elevator mb are really fun and I also enjoy the animations tied to each mode. I like when you hit a shot on Walk This Way, a girl walks across the stage.
I'm not really sure I need much additional code updates as the game plays very well as is. I recently owned GB and I think this game blows that one away, especially in the code department (fun factor). This game is a great deal overall, especially the pro model. I give credit to Stern for making me love a game I had zero interest in prior to its release. I thought it was just a terrrible terrible theme. I find myself enjoying the music and the entire package with great art and awesome animations. Well done Stern.
