I think it was a bit too easy for me.. fist few games i was popping scores 300-400 Million. Dug the toys, the building, the bridge. Was fun for sure. Loved the layout and callouts.

I played the Le numerous times, and the shots are great. The building is great, the mega godzilla and ramps are fun to shoot. I just think the artwork is not the best. The lightshot is however very good, tank multibal is real good. The music is very repetative, the call outs get a bit anoying after some time. The scream of godzilla is ok. The music for the rest is not noticable, not that I can remember. I only remember the constant godzilla tune. Rules are not clear to me, and with Elwin this is more a competition player thing than just progress and easy to follow. The information on the screen is really bad, the clips are ok, old but ok. The variation between 3d rendered material and movie footage is not the best. All in all a solid stern, fun to shoot.

Well Tron LE has been my all time go to game for years and I still love everything about it. My Godzilla LE has become my favorite game to date. There is not one complaint about it. I think the game play is the best ever. I never get tired of it and learn something new each time I play.

Godzilla really is the complete package, that's about all there is to it. I don't think I can find any criticisms of the game, aside from maybe having some things be a little easier to understand rules-wise, but that can be overcome with reading and memorizing, and with deep rulesets, there is only so much information you can display on the playfield or screen. The silver powder coating on the LE isn't particularly flashy, but it makes sense and it does go well with the artwork (a different, more vibrant or poppy color would likely clash too much with the super colorful cabinet/backglass art)...I don't know, man. I'm really reaching here to find anything negative to say about the game...it's just too damned good! Elwin has done it again, the bastard!

Godzilla is great, for sure.
But it’s not the best Elvin.
It‘s a little bit „to much“ from all.
My no 1 is Iron Maiden

Really hard to nitpick any part of this game. It was my first so it’s been hard to rate others when I have to compare it to this one.

This game, wow. From the foil cabinet artwork of my LE, to the mirrored backglass, and the amazing playfield. All other solid state games I’ve played or owned pale in comparison. It is a perfect ten. The shots, the cut scenes I grew up watching on TV, the amped up soundtrack, etc etc. so good.

If I had to rank the greatest of all time, I’d pause. Mainly I’d do it per era such as Grand Prix for EM, taxi for system 11, etc. However for the current modern 2000 something pin, Oh yes. It’s is that good. Spinners, orbit shots, wire ramps, sinking buildings, etc. Play it or buy it. You won’t be disappointed. And play it LOUD!!!! So good when getting the Godzilla multiball and blue oyster cult starts jamming as the building sinks into the playfield.

This game is incredible. All shots are possible and there is nothing that limits you. You can set out to do anything. Want to start by taking the building down? Do it. Want to destroy the bridge? Fight Mechagodzilla? Do it. Fast, clean lanes, neat mechanics, lots of extra moving parts that are dripping with theme.
Oh, and you can switch it to a different language. Want to change to Japanese for theme? Do it.

I’ve never given a pin a 10/10. There is nothing to dislike on Godzilla. It just replaced Alien as my favorite. Actually, they are not in the same league. Ramp shots are very satisfying. The center building multi ball capture/release is awesome. Great combos. Easy is enough for the kids, hard enough for the adults. There is a left ramp shot that is hard to make, but when you do… ew lahlah. The collapsing bridge… So many cool toys and effects.

Probably my favorite machine of them all. I could play it for hours. Probably the best multi ball out there (using the Blue Oyster Cult song for multiball is perfect!). Tying in the movie clips too compliments the game action perfectly too.

Simply put, this is the most approachable pinball game I’ve played in a long time. No matter how old you are, you can play this game, even if you don’t understand all the rules. Elwin is the king!

A great game that lives up to the hype. The the mechs are great and add a lot to the total experience, though the building and bridge don't necessary need to be animated to enjoy the game (but who are we kidding - the building sinking is way cool!) Art looks good on all the versions, IMO. What a modern pin should be - a well integrated theme, good use of IP, great rule set that has the combination of easy to play for causal player to more in-depth modes and objectives.

In my opinion Godzilla is the King of PINS. It shows what is possible when everything just goes perfectly well together. The artwork, the numerous graphics/animations, the layout, the fantastic game mechanics, the music, and the code. The game is truly going to be the new benchmark of greatness and I can't wait what Keith Elwin Team come up with next. The best part about Godzilla is that it honestly never gets boring, you just want to keep on playing and it's fun to play and while getting better over time. This PIN has improved my skills immensely. I love the left Ramp, although hard to hit it's just so satisfying the way the wire ramp coils and comes back. Mechagodzilla is an amazing addition to the CODE and the game just keeps getting better and better. Honestly the only gripe I have about the game is the official Mothra Egg Shooter ROD. It's disappointing in my opinion and on my machine I added the AIQ shiny RGB egg. It looks so much better for the price especially. The pictures from stern the rod looks ok, but in person it looks faded and like a rotten egg. I wish it had a bit more shine to it and more vibrant colors to match the box.

At the time of writing this the code has just hit 0.96 and it is already one of the best coded machines of all time.

This is the best machine ever made and it deserves almost perfect scores across the board (if Godzilla does get perfect scores then nothing ever will).

Godzilla is hands down the best new Stern to come out in a long time. This will be a classic one day. It’s also one of Elwin’s best pinball machines to date. Everyone that comes over loves to play Zilla.

It’s so expensive for a reason. The game itself is beautiful! The foil accents on a matte finish with the powder coat just pops and the code + shots are super fun with several innovations and some old ideas perfected. I waited and it cost me big but can’t say enough about the total package. Being able to toggle between Japanese and English is just the coolest touch. Definitely an all-timer if not the one to rule them all!
