I like Thrones alot. It's been very good to me in tournaments.
I had fun with Star Wars for sure. Art is better in person, but the playfield is barren. They didn't spend any money on the BOM there cause they knew they didn't have to. Game is lightning fast. You can't look up, ever, unless the ball is trapped on a flipper. It's a shame too as the screen is beautiful and has a ton of valuable information on it. Movie clips are great and what everyone remembers from the movies. Lots of familiar lines in the game and I could hardly hear it above all the other games. I'm sure it is even better when you can hear it more. There are literally 20 high score boards, so plenty of chances to enter in your initials which I like. Give people some excitement for doing things well.
Shot multiplier has a nice feature in that you can lock it or move it with the action button. When they are red, they are off and movable with the flippers, green on. Shot multipliers can make single shots huge. Bonus and stacking MBs with shot multipliers is where it is at. Bonus is broken like Batman 66. You can play for 5 seconds, score 3 million and get 90 million in bonus. One guy had 30 million in scoring for his game, but got 640 million in bonus over 3 balls. It's so out of whack right now.
It is a lot like Thrones overall. Choose your character (house) and get special abilities based on your choice. Skill shot has options too like Ghostbusters. For main modes, it's shoot one shot so many times to light those modes (Endor, Hoth, etc.) and then play 1 or 2 of the modes at the same time. 4th mode on each is a MB. Modes are pretty simple and are a little varied, more varied than Star Trek which was nice. Stacking MBs gets ridiculous. Light show is impressive and blinding. You can't see anything with stacking MBs and jackpots firing off all the time.
Cons for me...
Tatooine scoop was a lot like Gene's head from KISS, shooting the ball down the middle too often and there is no ball save currently. That sucks cause that shot is important, but I found myself avoiding it.
The pops are wasted. Might as well not be there. Right orbit will once in a while divert to pops, otherwise ball never goes there. In 6 games I think the ball went to the pops maybe 6 times total. When it does, the ball can only come out the right side. Seems like a waste if that is all they do.
Broken bonus is unfortunate. I'm sure it will be fixed, but it is ridiculous as it sits.
Game is so empty. For a huge Star Wars universe it's sad that this is what we get from a playfield standpoint. So much could be done there and they literally did nothing besides a static Death Star and a Tie Fighter on a spring.
Playfield LCD is kind of wasted, like they just put it in there to put it in there. It would be nice to have more information down there cause you might actually be able to look at it, but it is pretty much all skill shot and tie fighter info currently.
Modes continue over from ball to ball, so you can get "stuck" in a mode. For instance, I was in the Emperor's Throne Room Battle mode where you have to hit the ramps alternating left - right. I did it over and over and could never end the mode, then the next ball would start and I would be right back in it.
That's all I can think of for now. If anyone has any specific questions, shoot away and I will answer them as best I can.
