Quoted from gambit3113:
I joined this club two weeks ago, and I’m wondering if this might not be my favorite pin. I have a love/hate thing going with it, but holy hell this rule set is bad ass.
Damn, I was wondering this too. I know better than to get smitten with ''honeymoon'' feelings, I mean the game is damn good. So good I've wondered if it's got the potential to be in my tops list.
Not really feeling the hate thing, I mean It can be a little like juggling setting up your X shot, but it's not something that has to be done. I really don't understand why anyone bitches about this game unless they're a lousy player?
Things I dislike about the game: mmm...thinking...Not really anything? I don't know that I'd change anything, really.
Things I love: The clarity of the video clips are tops. If you're a Star Wars fan, they take you right back and into those movies, a very immersive experience.
The gameplay is smooth and faster than hell, it's superb and the shots just feel so good to hit. I like the spread out shots all over the playfield and there is a true rush of adrenaline trying to not blow a 40x hurry up. Add in fantastic multiballs, and I always enjoy balancing the tie fighter button with the actions to maximize hits. I LOVE locking a ball at the Death Star shot and then whacking it out of there! This was ripped from Avatar and is such a great thing seldom seen.
Video mode is a decent break from the action, especially if you nab it with some multiplier going. The light show is incredible as well.
There should be no need to pump this game up, people either haven't given it a fair shake or are not great players because the game will hand you your ass if you're just a run and gun type player.
It's not fair to Steve Ritchie and company, they made a blockbuster experience and I'll stick by those words.
