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.

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.

One of my favorite games of all time. Easy to understand rules and the call outs are fantastic.

Overall great classic game.

Honestly it's a bit stale. One main target which is loads of fun. But then.... Ramps is really all ya get. For it's time period absolutely wonderful. Now it's just a little stale.

Still very fun. The mods and everything make it incredible to play and achieve things. Very fun. Rules are pretty simple and pretty obvious when you walk up what you need to do.

An ok machine will be an ok experience. A well maintained machine could be an amazing pinball experience.

Great game - I give the edge to MM or EHoH with similar layouts however.

Great game. More fun than I expected. The alien attack is one of the best features of any pinball machine.

One of the greatest games ever made for a reason. Buttery smooth gameplay, fun scoring, a deep ruleset. There's not much to say about AFM that hasn't been heralded for decades.

I was very skeptical about this game remake. After playing it, I realized that it have been improved drastically when compared to the original.

Don’t know anything wrong with this pin. Timeless and always go back to play it again. This pin is funny, fun to play, and a great theme.

I bought this machine new and have loved it since I first plugged it in…. The Martian and people call outs really drive the theme and the shots are challenging and very fast!!

A timeless classic. A little brutal, but always a fun play. This game helped to hook my son on pinball. I'd love to own one some day, but these are pretty common machines locally. Destroying that center saucer never gets old! I think this game proves that an original license can still work, even though most modern games are all licensed themes. The music is also amazing. This is a Pinball Hall of Fame type game.

I love this game! I keep going back to it over and over. I wish I would have purchased one when I had the chance. The rules, the theme, the shots are all amazing!

AFM has a good layout with great toys (mothership is the best). The only thing that holds this game back in modern times is the simple and repetitive code.

Very fun to play from the first time and want to keep playing as learn the shots. Flippers are bit unique and take a little getting used to. Not sure it is top 5, or worth what they go for but happy that can play it locally.

One of the best.

Definitely one of my favorite pins, the rules are easy and clear. Great animations and some of the best shots in pinball.

Extremely fun pin!! The topper is a work of art and the fact that it interacts well with the game is even better. I do find it amusing how closely it resembles MM, but they are both fun to play in their own ways.

The call outs on this pin are funny.

You can't go wrong with having this pin in your collection. It's hard to say how long I own it with have MM, but time will tell. To me it seems to be faster than MM which I think is a plus.

Absolutely my favourite CGC game. They nailed it. The extras really do add to what was always a classic game. Topper is insane and best on par with BKLE. Game play just keeps me coming back for more. Sold it and bought another. Sold that and now regret it too. So many pins so little cash!
Great all around package. Easy enough for the beginner and difficult enough for the player looking for more depth.

Just a classic game. Callouts are funny and regularly get quoted in our house. The whole family loves this one. My favorite by a wide margin of all the classic Bally games.
