This may be the best pinball machine ever made. Easy for a beginner to pick up or super deep for experienced player. It’s funny, its artwork is great how are kids love it. Probably my favorite game ever

AFMr is by far one of the best out there. Truly has a great game play, lighting and call outs. I consistently find every age of pin players gravitating towards the game and wanting to play it more and more. The topper is awesome! Its not fast as others and consistently remains a bit challenging to accomplish and complete all of the missions. Very happy I added this pin to the collection.

Getting all the Remakes from chicago game. I think they are doing a great job with these.

I really wanted to love this game, but found it mainly nostalgic. It’s a classic and I love the theme, however it’s not as challenging as modern pins.

I think I enjoyed this game more than my rating implies. Its a classic, and I think thats part of the appeal. The theme is just ok and the toys look like, well, toys.
Its easy to jump on and play right away, which is a good thing. Doubt I would ever buy it, but make sure to play at least one game anytime I pass by one.

Honestly, this game was good in its day, but now it is like saying buying an old 20 or 30 year old car, drives better than a 2018 model! Can't understand why these old tables get rated so high, when modern tables are so much better!!

I have owned this pin for awhile and have played it hundreds of times. I absolutely love it. It, along with WOZ Ruby Red edition, is one of the most beautiful pins around.

The layout is magnificent and never disappoints. Sure, the center saucer shot is risky, but that only adds to the fun, making sure to hit it on a ricochet/bank rather than straight up. The call outs are funny (I never tire of "take your hands off of me...all four of them."

It is one of the most well-lit pinballs out there, which I really like. It pops in a room filled with other pins.

A spectacular game.

Not any special comments here. AfM is good game, not as good as MM and many others. It is mainly FUN game. And that is good. There are too many too complicated themes, this is simply enough.

I’ve played both the original and remake on many occasions. AFM is a fun, classic game that I always enjoy. With that said, I am not sure I would rate it as top 10 of all time let alone #1.

The layout is fun and it has good humor as well. The playfield, particularly by more recent standards, however, doesn’t have many toys or that much going on. I think it is kind of bare. I personally prefer MM for a similar era, classic pin with a similar layout (more and better toys).

I didn’t play AFM growing up so there is no nostalgia factoring into how I rate this pin. Overall, a fun pin but not one where I think it is better than several newer pins and not one I think I would pay 6k+ for.

I love this machine! I am truly addicted to this game. I played the original and the remake quite a bit, and I find the original to be made a bit better. But you can't go wrong with either one. The game play is fast and fun, the game rules are great, destroying saucers to me never gets old. The call outs???? "MULTIBALL!!!" amazing!

If I was going to be real picky about this game, I would say it is a drain monster. Which makes me a better player but damn it can be frustrating! Especially when you are playing at a $1 a play at the bar. But again, it makes me a better player. So yeah I am a big fan.

I have only owned this game for a few weeks and so far so good. The LE is just cool, topper is really cool and I love how it’s interactive with the game. The shots are fun and pretty smooth. The space ship in the middle is a dangerous shot but you have to shoot the shot a bunch to get to the wizard mode. The lighting show is top notch. Love the Martian multi ball even though it really isn’t worth much in points. I also like the video mode and all the Easter eggs in this game. The only knock on it is it might be a bit too easy to to get to the wizard mode, but on the other hand it’s still gratifying to get there. Think the jumbo dmd really helps to make this game pop.

AFM is a fun game, but really showing its age. A bit limited and repetitive.

Challenges Medieval Madness as the greatest game of all-time, though any discussion on that front should also include Monster Bash, The Wizard of Oz, Iron Maiden, Cactus Canyon and a few others. I loved the original but the re-make completely blows it away. The light show is the best in pinball as is the topper, build quality is far better than the original and the overall aesthetic experience leaves the original in the dust.

This game is probably the greatest pinball machine ever made. It has a simple and easy to grasp rule set and goal for beginners, and lots of things to do for pinball masters. The theme is awesome, and the remake is amazing. I love this machine and if I could only have one (and afford it) it would be this one.

Though I have never been a huge fan of the original, I really enjoy the entire package that is AFMr LE. The topper is the best in pinball, the huge custom color DMD is fantastic looking and still captures that 1990's DMD era while stepping it up. The animations are far better than the original. The sound is big, rumbling and fits the theme perfectly. This is a good playfield design and a good pinball game, but overall it is better than just the gameplay. I would give the gameplay a 7 and the overall pin a 9. It's the entire package that makes this remake a winner. Would love to own an LE someday.

The day I get tired of hearing "MULTIBALL!" blast out of those speakers will be the day I give up pinball forever.

This is one of my favorite games! I feel like the game is easy to play but hard to master. Fairly easy to get a multiball and stroke of luck is awesome. Very active playfield and great theme!

fun game overall but a bit repetitive for me to want to add it to my home collection. Has great lighting and some of the coolest animations on the large display.
