Quoted from zacaj:
When was the last time a Trudeau game had flow? Same with TWD, if your ramps are loopable then they aren't going to set up other shots. That's how some games are? Not every game is about flow, and I for one am happy so play some games that aren't just about comboing shots all day. Almost every recent Stern I can think of is pretty flowy though...
TOM is probably the smoothest game in existence, but it's the same in general with B/W games. Some have flow, some don't. Sounds good to me
I have plenty of games that are not flow or combo based that I really enjoy. None of them have balls flying off ramps or jumping inlanes or setting in the pops for hours like GB and TWD do. And to answer you question Congo has great flow and uses ball gates, posts, and diverters extremely well to set up the next required shot. My reply wasn't to say that all games need to be combo or flow based, it just stating that I do not consider most stern games to be smoother shooting in any way shape or form other then AC/DC and ST.
