I only rate machines I have played over a long period of time. I’m in California and pinball has always been a hotbed where you can play anything you want. If the game passes the perfect 10 with me and my fam, I buy it. Brian Eddy is a superstar, up there with Pat Lawlor and Steve Ritchie incorporates much of the same awesomeness in MM. It’s challenging and rewarding. Mars and Aliens has always been great theme and stands the test of time. The sound is fantastic and the shaker is not just an addition but designed well for the machine. The remake LE edition is Big Bang for your money, the interactive topper is must have.

For me, definitely has "Lastability." Still haven't conquered the universe on the game I play. The hardest part has been destroying enough saucers. Still has some good fun humor and the theme is excellent.

AFM LE is an amazingly fun pin to play. Always keeps me coming back for more. The CGC remakes are truly amazing. The AFM LE has the second best topper in pinball behind the BKSOR topper. I will always keep this pin.

Fantastic remake, well worth the extra $$ for the topper, large DMD etc.

Fun game that keeps me coming back for 1 more.

AFM survives on nostalgia alone. Let’s be honest with ourselves. It simply does not compete with modern pins. Is this game a classic? Yes! Is it a blast to play? Yes? Is it the best fan B/W fan layout? No. Is it a top 5 game? I feel like you’ve got to choose...MM and AFM are basically the same game but MM has more to offer. Also...these remakes don’t feel as good to flip as the originals. That’s a fact.

Good game, bit over rated compared to new pins....

Incredible machine. CGC did it right reproducing such a legendary pin. The added touches with the larger screen & speaker panel plus what might be the best topper in all of pinball nicely add to an already classic. Fast, challenging and humorous.

We have had 2 AFMs, we had a SE, that we sold to get a LE because we like it so much. This game is pretty fun, we are not pinball experts, and it is just the right level of rules and challenges to keep us playing. We also like the campy theme a lot and find ourselves quoting the game even in our private lives.

This is the best version of this game in my opinion.

Almost perfection! Pretty rare for a pin to cover almost every base, appealing to novices and pros alike. Great rules, shots are smooth, theme and theme integration is as good as it gets. Only downside is the shots can get a little repetitive, but what do you expect from a fan layout?! CGC did a great job with the remakes, lighting and sound is first rate.

Top 5 pin for a reason.

In my opinion a classic. It doesn't have the deepest ruleset. But you always wanna play nother game

This game is an all time classic. The AFMR LE plays amazing, in my opinion smoother than the original I owned. The lighting and topper and AMAZING. Never gets old, has that one more game appeal.

Had this game in my collection just a few weeks, Martian green with topper. Game was super boring, and sold it as soon as I could. Took a HUGE loss on this POS.

This is a must have game! Fast challenging and forgiving. Fortunately for me there is one close by.

I’m puzzled. Why remake this almost the same. Playing a well modded original and a remake doesn’t feel that different. Still a good game but don’t think it deserves this much praise. Wouldn’t be bolted to my floor.

Good fun, but can only take for so long. Everything looks shiny and beautiful, sound is great. Shots are well spaced. As popular as the original is, I don’t run for this pin whenever I see it. It is simple fun- great for new people, but the repetitive nature limits my interest. Probably in my top 20, not top 5.

I never realised just how good this ATFMLE is. It brings back all the memories of what a pinball machine brings with the perfect balance of fun and skill and excitement. Clear, simple and challenging rules to follow without doing your head in, and beautiful art and sound and toys. Can you give 11/10 ?
CGC have done a wonderful service in bringing this back, and now i just want to get all of their pins.
Anyone got a royal MM ? (-:

This is a very fun game however not my favorite. After awhile the theme grows old. The artwork has a cool retro 60s vibe and love the drop gate. They did a very good job with this pin.

Pinnacle of pinball for a reason! The rules, layout, theme, plus some golden era 90s nostalgia mixed in make this pin a top 3 on Pinside. Very glad Chicago Gaming remade this with the AWESOME topper.

Just added the game to my collection and so far the entire family loves it...

Great, classic game. For me, I prefer MM, but AFM is equivalent in every way. I've always felt it's a toss up between the two.

I really enjoyed this game after I realized what it stood for...which is just goofy. It doesn't take itself too seriously when you think about martians attacking earth.

A classic game made better by CGC - the interactive topper is up with the best. Easily accessible, light hearted and still a challenge with the risk/reward central shots.
