I LOVED this game when I had it Jun to Aug 2012. If you're a fan of the show, it is a perfect machine - at least to me. The cabinet art is short, sweet, and has a very mysterious vibe. Translite art was pretty good. Playfield I loved - so many nods to the show. The lack of "modes complete vs modes to go indicator" was definitely a major hit in the negative. The ramps are super tight, but man when you hit them, you are "in the zone" and to me - they require FAR more timing and skill than most A-list machine shots.
The biggest problem for me - and why I sold it other than paying off a car repair at the time - the maintenance. I bought this machine from a very good guy, and his machine was well taken care of. Man, it seemed like nearly constant maintenance. At one point, I was happy just to get through a game with nothing going wrong. The "phantom filing cabinet hits" drove me insane. The slingshots would go off randomly - had to tweak them. The LED issues I had with ghosting vs non ghosting - OMG -________-. Drove me nuts. That game required more maintenance than my other 3 combined, and it was a GREAT example - very well taken care of - nearly ZERO damage to the cabinet or the PF.
I love the theme to death and the music was great. Speaker quality was a 3 r 4 out of 10, but nothing a new system and some clever soldering couldn't fix. The callouts DID get old though - they simply needed another 20 callouts at a minimum.
If I hadn't needed money for a transmission bill at the time, I would have kept it. I want to think I would have. I loved that machine, but the maintenance was the deal breaker for me.
Youtube videos of the one game I got going when it was for sale. I think I had one game going for a good 12 mins or so - which for me on XF - I thought was pretty good. Meh - maybe so, maybe not .
