One of the best horror themed games. shots are pleasing to make and always get you closer to some mode. Integrated the Dracula theme very well into a pin.

Only thing I feel is missing is an overall goal or wizard mode. However, can't go wrong for the price this game goes for.

A great game that has grown on me quite a bit. Tremendous bang-for-your-buck! The excitement of stacking multiballs and the eerie audio keep me coming back. There is a nearly bottomless well of amusing audio clips and the dots are some of the best I've seen. This game can be very unforgiving with a lot of short ball times, but it's extremely satisfying when you set everything up and finally hear the 'thiiiiiirrrrrtyyyyy miiiiiiillllliiiooooonnn'. :)

Fantastic game, and one of the best licensed pins ever. There is definitely a learning curve, but if you're good with reflex shots it won't be as hard to overcome it. Multiball is hard to get but once you do, you're hooked. Timing and aim are key in this game.

The game does an amazing job at creating an atmosphere of its own. The speech and sound effects are perfect. The music kind of reminds me of the Splatterhouse games, which creeps me out, but in a good way. I don't care much for the backglass art but the playfield art is lovely and the DMD animations are incredible.

Not just an awesome horror pin but an awesome pin, period.

A really beatiful addition for any collection. If well maintained, the adding of multiballs and boni is fun for hours.

Even when the rules are just basic and the difficulty is quite high.

Well, this is a machine that you either love or hate... Or is it love and hate? Not a pretty backglass ( more wynona ryder less decayed Dracula would have been appreciated) but cool sounds and music that suit the dark theme. The gameplay is challenging , often frustrating and sometimes rather rewarding. The teeeen 20 and 30 million quotes can really give you a rush. The many multiball modes and the use of magnets and sound in the misty multiball are impressive and get you hooked. Needs strong flippers to create a flow.Not perfect , but can certainly find a place in a modest collection and in your heart, if you give it a chance. It will often bite your neck though so be carefull...

good game. Myst multiball is cool. Just seems to be lacking in something - playfeild a bit sparse? Good allround pin and well worth a play.

Another game were the first ball is very important. Score a high bonus and this will be carried over from ball to ball. I managed to get 9,9 billion in a 5-ball game because the huge amount of bonuses and jackpots (240 million).

dont waste your time, or money on this one.... decent bang for your buck, but much better titles for similar money.

This pin is often underrated and its a shame because behind the unpopular theme, the gameplay is top-notch. The art on this game is ok, and the mature theme will mostly be appreciated by movie fans. Notorious for being a challenging game, BSD is a shooter's game. A novice batting the ball around will drain quick. Shooting castle lock targets in single ball play is suicide. Pros will love the game for its emphasis on ball control and skillful shooting. The goal of the game is to become a vampire hunter, vanquish Dracula sleeping in his coffin, and defeat his evil minions. It's not going to be easy! Features include a great light show, good dot animation on the blood-red dot matrix, an eery musical score, and Gary Oldman VO ("THIRTY MILLION"). The video mode can be equally challenging as you participate in a shooting gallery. Shooting werewolves awards points, but gives million point bonuses for shooting them when they are about to bite (the closer they are = the more points you get), Finally, the game allows players to stack up to three different kinds of multiball & features one of the coolest toy events in pinball, Mist-Multiball. Players witness a ball being carried across the playfield and have to shoot the ball during travel. Game can be very brutal, but with good play can award a ridiculous amount of points; ensuring lots of randomness and long life in a collection. Very affordable machine & a great multiplayer game. Great pin to add to a collection, or start one.

Great Dark theme, awesome fast game play, Mulit-multiball is great feature - Mist multiball, well new players are blown away first time they see it. Highly under rated and under valued - grab one before the prices climb

I think this game will hone your flipper skills as you will need them to sustain a lengthy game on this pin, I found myself constanly passing the ball across or generally battling to stay in play (it's a fast game no doubt) there are a couple of frustrating ball drains (straight from the pop bumpers down the middle & straight off the centre targets) music is dark & game is quite dark but very more'ish, the 3 targets infront of the centre drain are badly placed and are probably best avoided, animation is quite good and lighting effect are cool, this is a nice looking pin with a unique mist ball feature which is neat, otherwise shots are limited and difficult with only two flipper bats, with all that said it does make you want to throw your money in it which must be good, thought I would move it on in a hurry but it's a keeper & deserves it's rating position.

This pin can be very frustrating and I find its game play very challenging. Only ever seen 3 of these machines, strange because of its highish production run numbers. Absolutely love the Mist multiball too. The theme of this pin to me feels very dark it is not a family game. Definitely a winner, great licence , great gameplay.

Playfield does not play very smooth, has the cool mist ball but the flow and other aspects of the game are not very impressive. This game is rated too high and my guess is because it has the mist ball. Nonetheless the mist ball does not make up for a poor playfield and a game that does not flow very well. Much better pins out there such as Frankenstein

I just love the colours in this game. To me its a beautiful game to look at. Its entertaining and very fast. Lacking a little overall on things to do to keep me coming back for more, still alot better than Frankenstein.

The magnet drag is a very cool feature when it is working. But that is still not enough to put this machine over the top. It is lacking in too many areas to be the top pin some claim it to be. It is a beautiful looking pin I just can't seem to get into playing it extensively.

A game I used to hate at first, but it grew on me and being an avid fan of the film simply had to add it to my collection. Enthralling visuals and a deep rule set.

Only Iron Man makes for a better tournament game. I wish the art package was a bit better.

Fantastic video mode. Great theme integration.

I don't really like the flow of this game (I've owned it); but I must say that the Mist-Multiball is one of the coolest things invented in pinball EVER!

I've owned this game twice now. this is my second one and the condition of my current machine is great. All the red is bright, everything works including (the hard to find working) mist multiball function. I enjoy the Drucula theme and all the sounds from the movie. Enjoyable game especially when you get both the castle multiball and coffin lock multiball going at the same time for big points. Plan on keeping this game for awhile. Also for such a good game it's a very reasonable price.

This Pinball will never leave my collection!! Wicked,wicked game that seems a little hard an unfair first time playing but after the initial breaking in its an absolute winner.
Fantastic dot matrix animations and a creepy cool lighting show!

Good pin. Buddy picked one up. A bit to dark for me. Has a lot to take in. Basic rules though for a more advanced game.
