Today I played one for the first time on location.
It’s really not a bad game. Not top 50. But undeserving of all the hate I have read.
It shoots well, good flow.
Some fun shots, the mick on a stick isn’t bad.
Not the best toy in pinball but it’s a moving bash target so there is some variation. Over all a decent game worth a few plays.

Killer game, fun and of course great theme and music.

It's a super fun game. Has some really fun shots. I really like it. I also don't understand the hate.

1 - The Stones are old and not "cool".

2 - It came out at a time Stern was cutting costs.

3 - Initial code was terrible.

4 - People hated the photoshop art package.

5 - Mick on Stick rhymes and is easy to poke fun at.

6 - Mick on a Stick actually does a good job of blocking shots, and people hate that.

I really enjoy mine great theme game is pretty challenging and quick playing which I enjoy.

I’d say it has to be the most underrated game in the pinside ratings. Deserves to be in the top 100.
At the end of the day all that matters is I enjoy it and if you give it some time, actually learn the rules you will find it’s a fast and challenging game to advance through.

Has nice dots as well if color dmd would ever get around to doing it!

Scoring is terrible. Music shuffles quasi-randomly with little relation to what's happening in the game. Horrible photoshop art.
