Quoted from RTS:
Nope, the game isn't as awesome as the resale price has fooled you into believing.
I've played the game and here would be my quick take:
Theming: Perfect. You couldn't theme the game any better, they really incorporated the theme of the movie into the game.
Playfield: Look at what you're seeing from stern lately and compare it to this... its a masterpiece. It has an upper and lower playfield. How many games ever made within the last 10 years could claim that?
Artwork: Its a bowling movie so only so much could be done, its not star wars. For the theme I think its great.
License: It's considered the #1 Cult Classic movie of all time. So I would give it another A plus!
They incorporated clips from the movie into the game perfectly, there just isn't a single knock on the game itself other than the biggest one...
Can you get parts, will the game hold up, support for the game, code updates, blah, blah... that is the F in the room.
So where does this game sit? It probably needs to be a collector game, with limited playing time. If it ends up in a pincade I would only do that if the person running that pincade is a master at fixing pinball games. I would not consider myself in that category so for me its home use only.
The game is good, the theme is fun, the interest is high because of what a great job they did with the game. As with all of these companies there is going to be risks in buying them, because their company might not offer long term support.
Many props and cons but the game if it never breaks is a home run!
