I agree .... Visually very cool

it is beautiful. And looks like it would be loads of fun. Then once you get one, you realize it is not as fun as it looks. Great idea, just didn't work out. Awesome to look at though.

I play mine all the Time, I get hooked and can’t stop once I start.

Never played one, I like the theme. I need to find one and put some time on it. Looks fun

I’ve always wanted to play one...looks fun and I like the theme.

My buddy has one- it's one of the most unique games, albeit slightly wonky at times for lack of a better word.
There shots on this game that are difficult to notice until you've played it, especially on the upper playfield. The flipper on the 'apron' is very cool and should have been utilized in more games.

Also it's precursor to Whitewater. It's cool to see how he refined those ideas and turned them into a classic DMD.

Haven’t played one either. Looks pretty interesting.

I really like the look of the game but I never liked the game play.

gotta have one that plays well... when the shots are impossible the game is incredibly short and non-fun. Same with lost world... the 'ramp' shots etc the game relies on make and break the game

You don't like FT either, lol

Both are great games! A nice playing BW100 is rare, but a thing of beauty!

yes, but I don't like FT for different reasons, not because of the layout or rules. FT used to be fun. I burned out on it back in the early 90's because it was in one of the only bars that didn't card, and we were 19 at the time. So it was one of the few games we had access too. and didn't care for the theme or music. but overall. It's not that bad of a game. But I DO love to give you shit about it.

Trust me....it's far above fawking Street fighter 2 and X-files. Those are the bottom of the DMD barrel.

Kind of like AFM. I don't like it, not because it's a horrible game. But mostly because it's the cheapest and crappiest looking out of all the B/W DMD's. It's the econoline of the B/W lineup. Game looks and feels empty, like it was made to maximize profits with as little as possible. Compared to the creative aspect b/w usually does with layouts. Back when I first saw it, there was no way that cheap looking piece of shit, was getting my money. Not when I could be playing games that looked like they had way more going on. Again, it's not a horrible game. Basically a rethemed MB , MM. (yes i know it was first). Just gave me a bad taste from the get go, due to how cheap it looks and feels. Not a fan of companies cutting corners. Same goes for Stern, during the Econo years, and then again with GOT (and others).
