Come già detto per MM remake questo titolo ha un fascino incredibile ma non merita di essere in top10 e soprattutto di costare così tanto..magari fino all avvento di spike1 o ancor più di spike2,questi titoloni anni 90 avevano tutto il diritto di essere ai piani alti di una classifica,ma adesso non capisco in che modo possano tenere testa alla varietà alla complessità ed alla qualità dei gameplay delle macchine odierne.

Finally after 10 years of chasing this pin I finally got one!!
Was it worth the wait?
YES!! It has a fun level like no other.
Don’t understand why this can’t be achieved more often in newer pins?
Simple fun gameplay and you’ll have a winner.
Very happy to finally add this to our collection.
Get one if you can.

One of the best games period - probably the game that pulled me back into pinball. Callouts and theme are perfect. Game appeals to all levels of players. The remake is brilliant, I wish there were more of them around!

Cool pin! Always enjoy taking down aliens. The shots are smooth. Inviting theme. A good time playing. The display graphics are excellent.

Played on location and man what a fun game. This pin definitely earns its spot in the top ten of all time. Its fun to shoot and has amazing moments even for novice players like me. That first "saucer kill" is amazing. Found myself feeding it quarters again and again.
Gameplay is fast and its not a very "code-deep" machine, its a blast. CGCs remake was amazingly well made and slick. The color DMD adds alot to the gameplay experience and fun factor.

I don’t own this game and have only played it on location and a friends. It’s a fun game to play and reminds me of Stranger Things, but I don’t feel that it’s better than ST. Hard to believe this is ranked as a top 10 game especially with all the advances in the modern pinball games. A classic for sure but not a top pin in todays world.

The lights and sounds are very stimulating. The game also has that makes you want to play one more time feel. Code is very easy to understand so you ca n jump right in and play.

Definitely lacks flow when comparing it to a Godzilla or FOO Fighters.

Hate to rate games that I don’t own, but..

I have played a lot of AFM.

Classic game and layout.

Easy to understand and get suckered going up the middle all day bashing the saucer.

Great art and lights, but limited as this is a 90s game.

If I didn’t own ST or CCr, this would be in my home.

What can I say that hasn't been said... the game is likely the best remake ever made. The theme is fantastic, the animations are amazing and funny. Also, like all the CGC remakes it's an easy pickup for friends and non-pinball players

Top 5 90’s machine. Very similar layout to MM (fan layout) but game play is faster due to the lack of ramps. Theme is excellent. Call-outs are funny. Rules are not as deep compared to todays standards but they are easy to follow and achievable for both novice and pro players.

Near perfection for me. Music and SFX are great and get into your head in a good way. Shots are simple but sometimes hard, multiple combinations are satisfying. Rules are deep enough for a collection. It's just plain fun and the smile factor is on the roof.

Great game and still fun after all these years.

The great debate for me is trying to decide if I like Medieval Madness or Attack From Mars more. They're both timeless classics, and in many ways, the same game. But I've found them fresh and unique enough to own both, side-by-side, for years. And after all this time, I still can't decide. One days it's MM, the next, it's AFM. I love the extras that the remake LE includes, and this game will like never leave my collection.

Very fun game. I also like the 1950s cheesy news reports. Well done.

Deservedly an all time classic. This one will be in most player's top ten lists for many many years to come. I didn't expect to rate it a perfect ten but I can't knock it in any way!

Fine game. Too simple of a layout for my liking. Somewhat surprised by the popularity and staying power of this machine.

This is a game I always loved. We used to play it religiously daily and actually ruled the universe 2 times. Fast forward a few decades and still enjoy it!

I like an open playfield and combo shots so this is good for me. Keeps it flowing and fast play. The saucer and Martians are great additions to the pkayfield. Great interaction with the objective you are on. Easy to see where you want to place the ball.

Looking at mods for it, I am glad to have this in my collection.

Simple rules that are easy to understand.

Attack from Mars is a classically themed pin that is definitively timeless, with its big centerpiece shot dominating the playfield. Fantastic theming and an overall fun factor of 10+ makes this game perfectly placed at number 3 all time. Go and play this game any time you want to have a great day.
