Quoted from Robertstone0407:
Code will be the make and break on this game. Got about 60 plays in. 10 beers. Left outlane has a ball save. Wish they'd stop being cheap and do a kickback
You got in 60 plays and your only remark is lack of kickback?
Finally got to play BK3(pro). I'm a huge fan so far. I went into it putting all expectations for the game as a sequel out the window, and just as a new game. What I found was that the game was...just fun. The shots are great, the Black knight toy is one of the best playfield toys in recent memory. The animations are fantastic as is the art. Retro mode is awesome with that sweet BK2K remix and SEs from BK. The soundtrack intro seems a little repetitive, but the soundtrack overall was excellent.
My biggest complaint is the magnasave...just sucks. The magnet is placed too high, it isnt strong enough, and the button placement is stupid. My BK2K and ToM can rip balls out of the top of the outlane and its super satisfying. This one cant even stop a ball that is directly on top of it if it has any speed. Once the ball is settling into a lane its FAR too late. I probably got one or two decent saves all night, and I am a practiced magnasaver with my hand hovering over it anytime its in that area. I checked the adjustments menu and didnt find anything for magnet strength which I think could potentially fix this. If I end up buying one (gotta play premium and wonka before I will know) I will IMMEDIATELY be drilling into my cabinet and adding a second magnasave button and will regret nothing.
Its my favorite modern stern at this point. Code is only going to make it better. Cant wait to try the premium.
