I grew up in Chicago where my parents created a game room in our home on the SW Side of Chicago. This was my first pinball machine and played it during elementary school and high school. The gobble holes were a nightmare, but either because it was my first it holds a special place in my memory. It is truly the game that got me hooked.

Arabian Knights is a woodrail that looks absolutely fantastic.

The Pros:
The BG, the PF and the cab all look fantastic! The rollover eyeballs crack me up!

The Cons:
The gameplay is poor. Now I have only played 1 copy, but this game does 1 thing. It gets the ball to the lower PF and keeps it there. Half a dozen gobble holes await to remove your ball from play. Good thing there's a tiny space between the flippers and no outlanes... eeech!

The Takeaway:
Personally, I liked to feed all 5 balls into the shooter lane and put them all into play at once. Your game lasts 8 seconds, but for those 8 seconds, you will be entertained. It's like a fashion model who looks fantastic, but can't hold a conversation. BORING!!!

The 1-2-3 selector knob makes a huge difference in this game. Knowing that from the first plunge, your risk/reward is set from the start of the game makes you play differently. This game still needs to have good mechs and all the gobble holes make for a more chaotic experience, but this game is better than I originally thought it to be. I love it when I am wrong about a pinball game like this. Some people may not dig the women and their outfits as portrayed on this table, but I think it fits the theme perfectly and the big face of the sultan on the PF always makes me smile.

This game was alright, but I've played a lot better. I would not go out of my way to play this game again.
