I agree if anything needs to be updated its the animations. They are not the best and need to be cleaned up. Many of the current animations look incomplete or just very odd. This is one I would really like to see cleaned up and color added.
Overall the basic rules are OK. But there are a ton of things they could do to make it better. There are some tough shots and I think most players cannot consistently make those shots to get to HOF, Kiss Army, or Rock City. I like that it's not easy to get those modes. But for the average player it gets old just getting Demon and Love Gun multiball. And the factory settings make it very hard for average players to earn an extra ball.
A good code update with the right tweaks could make this better for average players and challenging enough for skilled players.
Stern has really dragged their feet on this one and probably missed a ton of sales.
I just wish Stern would be HONEST and communicate openly on what games are being updated and WHEN updates are scheduled.
It seems any question asking Stern "When is (fill in the blank here) going to happen the answer is always STAY TUNED.....
I think the next time my boss or my girlfriend asks me when something is gonna be done I am going to answer with Stay Tuned.....I am sure that would go over real well
