This game is not seen very often and when I walked up to it I was completely surprised to find not only a game that I had never heard of before, but also a pinball game company I had never heard before. The owner was good enough to key me into the whole Stern story. I learned something new about pinball and got to play a game I had never ever seen much less knew anything about... COOL!

The Pros:
I know I have bagged on Flight 2000 quite a bit and this is the narrow body version of that game that came before the stern widebody we all know. This game was in great working order and this played quite nicely. The shots felt tight and the multiball is quick on a smaller pf. The 1-5 targets lighting up to queue the multiball are well implemented. The spinner to the upper right hand drops are a really nice touch. The red standup lane between the drops on the lower PF is a tricky shot.

The Cons:
This game can be a bit too generous with the outs. I'd say remove all extra posts between the flippers and near the outlanes to set up this game so that it has a challenge to it. My ball got stuck behind the right spinner a few times when I played it. Seamus's art package is horrid. PF is serviceable, but the BG looks like it was painted with mud on a stick. Strangely this game feels "lighter and cheaper" than Stern games.

The Takeaway:
There are lots of little figures over this art package with letters on them like SK, Steve Kirk and HW, Harry Williams... Gotta figure them all out! This game plays MUCH better than any flight 2k I have ever encountered. Make this table a bit meaner between the flippers and to the sides... and this will be a solid player. Still waiting to play a decent Flight 2k.

First time I have EVER seen a SS game with a dummy zero readout. Too funny...
