Played a pro this weekend. Solid game, but nothing amazing.
The light show was the most impressive aspect. The graphics on the LCD looked great compared to some other adjacent Sterns, but that's more for the spectators. The magnasave felt like whatever. It's hard to use it to actually save something, but it's good for grabbing the ball, especially during multiball, to give you a second to breath. The shots are smooth and didn't feel overly punishing (I was surprised at the post that makes the rejected flail shots not as punishing as it could be). The code was straightforward enough to quickly figure out. It doesn't seem like a deep game, but the challenge offsets that. Hopefully they can add a little more variety to the modes. Seems like all the big points are in getting to Retro mode with a good super scoring feature active.
I'd give it a B-
Good luck to Stern selling 600 LEs
