We've had it since NIB over two years ago and still play it almost daily. Never had any issues with it, and all of the code updates were like getting new "expansion packs" every time they came out.
The shots are tough, but when you hit them, it's smooth as butter. This game will make you a better player. I've only reached Danger Room twice, and still haven't even sniffed Dark Phoenix....
Love this game!
WOZ is just a bitch. It went through a rough patch with me where I almost sold it. But then the software just got better and better until it achieved greatness. And then after that, they still made it even better. It reached the point that playing it is always fun. I had 4 red letters flashing in Rescue last night, and drained trying to get up to the castle playfield. The layers just keep going, and there are still things I haven't done in the game after more than a year of trying.
Tron. What more can I say about Tron? I've made it to Poral, but it was pretty short. I've struggled to get back there, but it is always just out of reach. The game always seems to have the right amount of flow, speed, and difficultly. I don't fire it up for a quick game, I fire it up for a war.
IM. I've only had my VE for a little while. So really it is too new to judge. But that game is CrAzY. I have never seen a game that delivers so much satisfaction and frustration so quickly. Sometimes I hit the start button more than the flippers. I already know the sound when Tony says "Kill Power" followed by the start sound. While playing I keep telling myself "Last game, time to go", but then another game starts. And when you get the game rocking, it is just amazing. So yeah, it's staying.
I really like when I open a new Stern game and I do not have to make adjustments or have any issues right out of the box. My X-Men Magneto has been awesome-no issues. Tron, just open the box and play. AC/DC premium was a masterpiece right out of the box. I did not have to do anything, even the LED's were perfect. I am turning into a hoarder, because all my nib Sterns have not lost their luster but have become part of the family.
WOZ - I've got about 400 games on it and still something will pop up I've never seen. 'Only made TNPLH 3 times and while I have been vocal in that this should be made easier the very difficulty keeps me coming back. 'Kinda like the rat pressing the bar for cocaine - if rewarded every time the rat could care less. Make it a random award and the rat keeps going back until exhaustion. WOZ is the game for big rats like me. I'm glad I bought one instead of feeding quarters - it's much cheaper and you develop an real appreciation for the complexity of the game. JJP makes a nice product - I'm in of the next PL title.
For me, any game that I've had has gotten old at some point. Some have gotten old within a week. Others have taken months. But they all get old sooner or later.
Sold Monopoly just recently after a long stint in storage. As much as I love the theme and Lawlor's games, the game play just didn't appeal to me any longer. And my wife played it so infrequently she even forgot we owned one.
My second one will come in as soon as I finish reconstructing my gameroom. Fantastic game.
I have about 750 games on WOZ (had it since 9/14) and it is always fun and challenging. Soo much I have never done. I bought Met in July and have hundreds of games on it. Soo fast and soo brutal...keeps me (and my wife) always coming back.
