Quoted from BallyKISS1978:
But if you have been waiting for a pin of one of your favorite bands and your let down by the art work not so easy to wait just for the next one. Most likely will never see another Led Zeppelin pin again. So some of us are upset with the art direction that was taken.
Again. It’s just a game. Sure it’s disappointing if it’s not what you expected. But just give it a chance and it may surprise you. Once you see it in person, it might not look so bad. And when you play it, and the music is rockin, you might fall in love with it. Never know. And if you don’t, no big deal. Don’t need to own Led Zeppelin pinball to enjoy pinball.
Quoted from coop:
I was reading your comments and I have to say they felt dismissive. So, I thought I would try to sketch out what people like me are thinking. It is just a pinball machine but I do love pinball and there are truly a very limited amount of grail themes.
Sorry that I came off that way. I’m coming at these games from a completely different direction than you, but I didn’t mean to make it seem like your opinion didn’t matter. It does.
I have very few dream themes too. Stranger Things and The Big Lebowski. That’s about it. TBL is cool as hell, but I’ll never own it cause of the price. Sucks, but no big deal.
Stranger Things is dogged by everyone on planet earth, and I wasn’t blown away by the reveal (very similar feelings as this one). But I got a pro early, played it for a week and saw they had something with it. Jumped on an LE and never looked back.
I knew the gameplay would never be what I typically would want in a dream theme, but it was good enough to keep me playing while the theme integration was pretty great, and did the license justice imo.
I guess my point is, for that, the most important thing to me (gameplay), wasn’t what I hoped or expected, but after playing it, I enjoyed the game anyway, and I’m glad I got it and didn’t miss out on my dream theme.
