Nope. You're the first. I second that. What a stinker.

Quoted from o-din:

So basically a video game with flippers. Made for video gamers turned pinballers.

Or Pinballers turned gamers in his case

Stern IJ for me, what a wasted opportunity.

Fireball 2.

The original KISS machine.

Themes don't mean much to me, though,

FirePOWER 2 as well. How did we LOSE multiballs in the sequel?

Has anybody played Airborne by Capcom? I was really disappointed in that one after owning Pinball Magic. The ramps looked so cool too.
For new games, The Hobbit and WWE. Rough stuff.

Quoted from vicjw66:

The problem I have with Hobbit is that I can play seemingly for ever on ball one, go through a bunch of modes, multiballs, and score endless jackpots, but when I finally drain, it feels like I haven't really accomplished much and my score seems disappointing.

It's a long game and it's more about the quest - going thru all the modes and movie events - and it has JJP's "trademark" low scores. Scoring is relative to the game, but we're so used to billions that thousands seems weird. Anyway, it's not for everyone - but it accomplishes well what it sets out to be - it's a cinematic pinball experience based on 9 hours of movie lol ...I don't want every game to be that way, but Keith Johnson is the master at making it happen. LOTR & Hobbit are very special games.

The original Back to the future.
No Michael J Fox, bad layout, ..

It's really time for a new one, fully licensed including Michael J Fox.

i try not to post negative matters...but GB just blew it. The art is gorgeous, the music and callouts are great, the lighting is awesome.

the gameplay.....yuck. just yuck.

The worst gameplay of a game created in the last 10 years.

I love my Star Wars LE. Yeah its hard, but some of the cutscenes and light effects are cool. Much much better after new update. Asteroid field is a little boring tho

Based on my fear/ creepiness of marionettes and the very poor response to the prototype game,

It would have to be TAG - Thunderbirds are go surely.

I personally hope Homepin learns a lot from the first go in this high tech present pinball world and comes back stronger with a better attitude and willingness to accept comments/ criticism without smart arse replies in game 2.
Fingers crossed for a fellow Aussie.

There I said it.

Since today, after seeing what JJP has done, i would say PotC made by Stern.

I have to agree with this, the Thunderbirds reveal was a major letdown as far as I'm concerned. It would need to be totally redesigned for me to get remotely interested again.
