Tough=repeat playability. Punishment=sell it and move on. This game is right there. On the cusp of frustration, then you stack modes, and get the multiballs moving, you love it.

When the initial pf design was released, I called my friend at Stern and told him everything I thought was wrong with the design and how I may have made a mistake buying sight unseen. He assured me it was going to play awesome and to not worry. Glad I listened. (I usually do.)

I would call the pf design brutal, and the rules rewarding. A strong mix like this happens in few titles. I can see this being a keeper.

Quoted from Cheeks:

My wife and I really LOVE the show and were super stoked about this game coming out. However, I thought she was going to put a beatdown on the machine we played at expo. I was pretty MEH on the game experience overall, but man, she hated it. We were both really disappointed that we didn't love the game. Needless to say we backed out of our LE pre-order.

Like I've stated to a few other Pinsiders who also backed out, at least you tried the game beforehand.

Pin is unique enough it may polarize some folks; I can easily see that.

Quoted from T7:

A larger rubber on the left entrance post of the right ramp fixes this - the ball always bounces over to the left flipper. It only takes a few minutes to swap and your good - unfortunately games on location may not get the fix.

Larger rubber on post doesn't affect RH lane shot?

glad you're enjoying your game but i've owned a quite a few of them for a week that i grew sick of after a month. way too early to know if you made the right choice. this totally looks like i'm peeing in your wheaties. sorry.

Ditto. Scared Stiff. Took a year to do a CQ restoration, then found out I couldn't stand the game.

Only took me 4 days. Wow. Goes to show how different the real thing is compared to Virtual Pinball.

Quoted from eggbert52:

OP it was a good read and I appreciate the review. Honestly, I don't think it was that long and even if it was it provided value.
That being said, what makes this thread different from the defense of any Stern NIB? I think it's intended to act as though the dissenters are wrong. I don't necessarily think that is the case though.
Liked your review, but let's let the overall market judge and we'll know when we see prices on LE's 6-12 months from now.
My belief and prediction is that they will fall somewhere between TAV and XMLE. I could be wrong.

I disagree with your prediction, but agree with your timeline Eggy.

Good job Pinball Chicken with the review, Sorry scrambled Eggy, but you are WAY off base!

While I agree with everything you just said, I disagree with none of it. That is all.

Over and out.
