viewing-angle-pissing-match aside, some good info in this thread.
I've had a virtuapin machine for a couple years and love it.
As 'vette said earlier, it's about the right expectations. If you expect IDENITCAL to pinball play, you're going to be less impressed.
If you approach it as a fun simulation- you will love it.
I have limited space for machines in my rec room, so my virtual cabinet plays an important part. If I had space and funds for 100 games, my view might be different- but for now- it's a great toy.
How else can you seemlessly switch from MM to MB to CC for free!
I also love it for those games I don't love enough to own, but enjoy playing from time to time. scared Stiff I'd a perfect example. The humor of the call outs are one of my favorite features. virtual pinball captures these aspects 100% accurately.
