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.

One of the greatest games of all time made even better. Also has the all-time best topper.

Medieval Madness is my favorite game. There's a reason it's always in the top 3 of games on Pinside.

This is a game where entry level folks can play and have a great time, and more skilled players have defeating the King of Payne to shoot for. The theme is universal and the more you play, the more fun it is. Bashing the castle and the trolls never gets old for me. Can be a little unbalanced (hit the castle over and over), but along with AFM and the Shadow, this Brian Eddy pin still holds up as one of the GOAT.

MM is just plan fun. Only continual issue with the remakes in the ball hop down the lanes onto the flippers.

Fun game. Not in my top 10 but apparently everyone else loves it. I find it fun but not challenging enough for a top 10. Lots of newer games I enjoy more. I'd put it in my collection if the price was ever reasonable.
Is it the theme everyone loves? Trying to understand.

The best machine I have every played. Love blowing up the castle! The game keeps drawing back in every time I have a chance to play it.

Probably my favorite overall game to play. Everything is done well on this game. The only thing I marked "down" (not perfect) is the overall lighting and that might be more of a problem of the lighting where I play the game and then some of the music can be a bit repetitive (but I'm being picky here trying to find something). You can spend a lot of money becoming "King of the Realm." Deserves its #1 ranking.

One of the best!

The first LE I owned, it was a great machine but doesn't compare in features to the newer CGC releases.

Game play is good, but like many have said there is just something off with this version

Flippers feel kinda mushy and playfield is too dimly lit. I believe the 2nd round of MMr solve both of these issues.

This is a highly addictive machine. Lots of fun toys between the pop up trolls and the castle plus the catapult is super satisfying. Great playfield artwork. Good rules that are deep enough without being frustratingly complicated. Only two minor beefs: one I wish you could get one of the multi balls again rather than it just creating the castle hurryup if you had already gotten one before. Second I wish it had a plunger instead of a big red vending machine style button that feels super cheap on such a nice machine.

Played MM today for the first time, at an arcade in College Park MD. It had me dropping quarters constantly, trying to figure out the game play. I liked the drawbridge and the popup troll targets. I got to destroy the castle once. I will be back.

It just arrived - MM-ROYAL Edition. First off the quality, look and feel of the topper is the best I have seen.
There is a reason why this has been in the top 2 for such a long time. A classic layout and a brilliant modern version of the all time classic.
It ticks all the boxes of a great pin and everyone should have an MM in their collection.

I have owned the original game and the new LE. The MMLE takes it to the next level. The theme, artwork, sounds, and added mods from Chicago gaming like the topper and bigger screen are amazing. The ramps flow and it never gets old destroying the castle especially after you have already defeated a couple of Kings. The humor of the Kings is hilarious to listen to. However, for me in a home use environment I lose interest fairly quickly. Maybe its because I have owned MM twice. The rulesets of some of the older pins are shallow compared to todays games. MM is a great game but I don't believe its the #1 pinball machine of all time which it is currently now ranked. It's a great classic game though and definitely warrants being in the top 50 pinball machines. I recommend owning this game if you have a larger collection (5 or more games).

I just received the Royal machine, but have had MMR in the past that I sold. The Royal was worth the wait (COVID slowed it down by a few months).

I often question the ratings with Chicago gaming company because all their machines are in the top three. That being said, MMR does undoubtedly deserve a top 5 spot no question. MMR is very fun and so far ahead of its time. The fact that MMR can maintain its position regardless of so many new machines it is competing against is amazing. Monsters and Mars (both of which I own) in my opinion are great games, but the should not always be in the top 3-5 compared to the new machines being released.

MMR has a ton of great shots that do not feel cheap or slammed together even know the shots so close together. The Castle shots should get old because of how repetitive it may feel, but the shot is always fun because of the spacing of other shots so close together.

The quality of the Royal is top notch and Chicago Gaming has honestly done a great job on this end product.

Medieval Madness is the result of the magic (intended or not) of game design, artwork, sound/narrative, and engineering converge.
The result is nothing short of an epic game, that takeS 100s if not 1000s to master an explore. As a huge LOTR fan and decent player, the shoots are familiar; basically the same. Yet the presence of trolls, the epic animations, and the over the top castle put this game in a league of its own. Whereas LOTR is about precision like an archer, the music adventurous, feels like a hunt.
To contrast, MM is like being in the midst of an upheaval, with violence and chaos as balls are hurled against the glass, exploded off troll heads during multiballs.
I have probably 500 lifetime plays on the game and there are still achievements not met. In tackling these various quests there are different ways to approaching the game. For example, destroying all the castles, saving the most peasants/damsels, joust or catapult champ, or reaching royal madness, etc.
I have a thing for the 90s/2000s games, and for my believe it was a magical period at the end of the golden Era of pinball. I can to relate to what happens when the right people are driving the right things, and the unexpected and high quality products that result.
Games like MM were innovative and I like innovative. There are a lot of knocks and tweaks of known good features. Copying has been around, and it’s not a bad thing, but for some reason nothing beats an original.
Alright, enough talk’n, I’ll start trying to chalk up a new personal best on my MM...200+ games in on my LE and there’s so much I haven’t done yet.
On a side note, any game, and MM is no exception has to be played and tweaked/ rinse and repeat to get them to really hum and to make your shots consistent and reliable. I can’t stress that enough.
