Freedom is not the best game from Bally or Claude F. However, things got better from Claude and his asymmetrical games are some of the best players out there.

The Pros:
2 Spinners! Light em' up!

The Cons:
A sparse PF that needs fresh slings and pops to keep things interesting. Otherwise things get dead, quick. Random awards take away the skill involved in playing pinball. Mr. Marche... what is going on? This BG looks like the marrching band is made out of mud...

The Takeaway:
I have played this game and it was OK. I have also played this game and walked away after a single play. Spirit of '76 is a far superior game to this design.

One thing I learned about this game is that it was originally designed with a pop bumper between the flippers (Spanish Eyes style) This meant that the flippers were higher and wider than what this game ended up being in production. This is why the top lanes feel so strange. The shot lines/geometry was never changed. That is why this game feels so "clunky".

Pros: Simple basic design with two spinners.
Two Standard lanes feeding top kickout hole.
Can play very fast when setup correctly.
First Bally solid state.

Cons: Backglass looks funky with oversized heads.
Middle rollover target boring to hit (and often fatal).
