I really like this game, I think JJP knocked it out of the park with a deep and original game that's like nothing else in so many ways. I even love the theme, I grew up reading the original Baum books, which are way trippier than the film.
But I just can't stand most of the music.
The main theme, the SOTR theme I just heard, they're just the opposite of what I want to listen to when playing pinball. Too sappy, too light, no energy. I gravitate towards more minor chord fair. I'd much rather hear the loops from The Shadow, a game from 1994, than WOZ's music from decades later, with a much more advanced engine. When I get to Final Battle on Shadow I'm pumped up, it's exciting. SOTR lacks that punch, and I think the music is the reason, because the light show is crazy, and probably way cooler in person. I just can't seem to get over it, though admittedly when I'm playing I'm too busy to pay that much attention. About half way through this video I closed it, I didn't want to listen anymore. I still hear the music while I'm typing, and it's annoying.
Luckily the Hobbit won't have that issue, much more cinematic music to draw inspiration from. I really hope that with a more 'mature' theme (really, there's nothing wrong with WOZ, and the Hobbit is ostensibly a children's story) people will gravitate more, and the JJP stupidity (meaning the dumb threads) will fade away.
Thanks for sharing!
