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.

This is a great game, it's theming is excellent and there is a lot of playability. The remakes with larger, color DMDs are great, and this game benefits greatly from going color on the DMD. Looks good with the green powercoated rails and legs and the topper is totally awesome! Find it a lot of fun on location, but I would not call it a deep game and though I would like one in my collection, I keep pushing it back for other games. Still, a classic pin that defines an era.

Chicago Gaming's remake is far beyond the original and the game, always a masterpiece, is now an accentuated one in every regard.

This is the best pinball machine in the top 10 by far. Wish I'd have purchased NIB. Wanting one for my personal collection.
Top 3 all time in my book!

I wasn't so sure about this game at first, but it really grows on you. Its a unique theme that seems to fit pinball well. I love making the ground shake when hitting or destroying the flying saucer. The call outs for jackpot or otherwise keep it very fun as well. Definitely a classic well preserved by Chicago Gaming!

i like this game and find myself always trying to come back or always wanting 'one more game'. the shout outs are fun and even though my wife doesnt like aliens, she still enjoyed this machine and killing the aliens and blowing up the ship

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.
