I’ve had this now almost 7 years and I’ve owed almost 200 pins in that time.
You name I’ve owned it.This game really is the best.It never gets old always fun to play.Our family has put almost 4000 plays on it since I bought NIB.
If your lucky enough to own one get it and enjoy it.
Will stand the test the time over all current top 10 pins,it will always come out #1 for a reason.

Posso solo ammettere che è un bellissimo flipper con tanto carattere e belle novità per i tempi in cui ha spopolato ma oggi come oggi non posso accettare che costi più di 10k e sia nella top ten in più davanti a jp e iron maiden.vabbene la nostalgia e il fascino del passato ma qui c è qualcosa che non va o che comunque io non riesco proprio a comprendere..

Great game and is a fun shooter. Great toys and the theme is playful and fun. You know what you are shooting and it has fairly easy shots. Nothing too difficult but enough to make you work. Catapult shot being the tougher of them. Outlanes are hungry.

Trolls are a pain during single ball play but add it to multiball and knock them down. Posting a ball will usually punish you proper. Beating a castle is extremely gratifying.

Excellent remake that was done right. Theme is classic and I feel stands the test of time.

Timeless machine. I’ve been playing it for ever and it never gets old.

A solid game. possibly one of the best games out there. while the main objective of the game feels a little reputative (hitting the castle)the characters you are defeating are goofy enough in the audio to make it feel like a new challenge every time. The other game modes such as the trolls also give this game something very fun, and makes it feel like a paced game. the lights and theming is great and I don't think I've ever had a bad time playing this game. voice acting is obviously great too. if i had to name a con about this machine, its the price it commands.

I had trouble with this review because I rated the original so high. My son and I played this game at Pinball Palace. We have shot 2 original 1997 games locally at Jim’s Arcade and Pinball Past time here in Vermont and one had Led upgrades and a new dot matrix. I originally thought it was a remake, but the owner told me and showed me it was an OG 1997. The 2 1997 originals we shot and played we’re exact same. Same feel, same speed and the same greatness across the board.

One of these had 10,000 plus games on it and was beat up, and the other was way newer looking so brand new that I thought it was the remake. So when I got to play this remake version I thought it would be the same old great feel. Both my son and I did not feel that way at all. It felt cheap, it did not respond as well and ever so slight changes in position of Merlin hole and ramps made me feel like it was not the same experience. The animations in color were cool but lacked the feel of the overall aura of this title.

It is still a great game! But I do not think it is a perfect and better transition like Attack from Mars. I like that games remake so much, much more.

Buy one or play this game any chance you get, I just do not think it has recaptured the original magic and game play of the Williams masterpiece.

Great layout shoots like butter has that one more game effect

Great game but the scoring is not balanced at all. Also, it feels very shallow compared to modern games.

Finally, addd a MMR-LE to my modest collection. The pin flows nicely, has great annimations, fun to play and always puts a smile on my face. Is it the greatest ever...for its era possibly. As technology has moved forward, the depth, annimations and gaming experience has developed, improved and surpassed MMR.

This pin is the complete package and I plan on enjoying it as much as I can. The MMR experieince is wonderful and unique for sure.

Great game and enjoy it everytime we at the pinball parlours, sometimes the games very quick with SDTM drains while others it flows nicely. castle is the best feature.

MM is a great game - fast and flowing, but not brutal. The castle is one of the best toys in pinball and the theme is a classic. On default settings, it's difficult to reach the wizard mode - so it keeps you coming back for more.

2021 Update - the ruleset would now be considered shallow compared to modern pins. Still a great title, but probably not the *best* game. Most people rated this game LONG ago and haven’t updated their rankings.

The LE and Royal are way too expensive compared to the original and standard remake.

Complex, love it.

This game as always been a great theme. The remake is just like the original. A great pinball with fun call outs and fun toys. The castle blowing up, trolls and all are make it such a fun and interactive game. It has stood the test of time and I believe will for many years to come. It plays well enough for amateurs to advanced players. The ruleset isn't very deep, but they don't need to be always.

I have owned this game for approximately a year. It’s likely the most well rounded/balanced game I have played. Very approachable for anyone and challenging enough for most. Just a fun fun game!

There's a reason MM is atop most pinball lists... it is so much fun. The unofficial Monty Python's Holy Grail pinball machine. So many great toys (castle, trolls), easy to follow rules, great flow and FUN! Trying to stack all five of the multiball madness options is a game within itself.
The remake shoots and feels great. Really smooth. The upgraded DMD is fantastic and the sound, although still slightly muffled (could've been more about the location) has transferred really well.
Hopefully this gets remade again so the next gen have a chance to own this all time classic.

Some of the elements of this game get a bit dated now compared to the new games and tech that are out there now. BUT This game is simply one of the most fun pure shooters out there. It is pinball done right and deserves its top spot.

This game is great. I was glad I found one within an hours drive of me. If I could afford it, I'd own one. For me that's saying a lot because I'm partial to the newer pins of the last 10 years.

I didn't watch any videos of gameplay before playing MM. My only knowledge of it was it's rating on here and it's high praise among pinheads. There were some cool surprises like the trolls. You'd think the drawbridge and castle destruction would get old...for some reason they don't. It's a repetitive mechanic that's fun every time.

The shots felt great. I would almost compare it to Theater of Magic. Easy to make shots, but they feel fantastic when you continually nail them. I do wish the game were a tad more difficult, but I didn't spend anywhere near enough time to master the game so I shouldn't really say that.

All around great pinball machine. If you haven't played it...go find one now.

I thought this game was way over rated. However, I had the opportunity to purchase the remake LE recently and have played it over and over since and now have fallen in love with this game. It is simple for beginner players, but yet complicated enough to challenge the better pinballers. Definitely a keeper inside my collection. I also have added the topper, full size color screen, upgraded speakers and subwoofer and color changing speaker lights. All of these improvements also adds to my love for this game.
