Awesome game, great ruleset and toys. The newer large screen and color LEDS are nice compared to the original. Everything flows great and just an overall great classic game.

Awesome, entertaining and funny game. I hear something new almost every time I play it. Objectives are straightforward yet challenging.

Well deserving of its reputation as one of the greatest pins of all time!

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 top 5 game, but probably not #1.

I used to favor originals over remakes, but the Royal edition with the 2x DMD, topper, powdercoat, RGB lighting etc is a huge upgrade and tips the scales in the remake's favor.

I think I like this one even better than the original due to the shaker motor and other improvements made. It's a fun pin, but I'd probably prefer a MB if I had the money to blow.

This machine is one of the best pinball machines to play. I would like to own this one someday.

One of the best toys if not the best. Bashing a castle in pinball is just so satisfying, this one is all time for a reason. Artwork awesome too, love the layout. A pin that you'll never wanna leave!

Very overrated game currently. The sentimentality of it is one thing, and it will definitely hold value for many years to come. But the game just isn't as fun as numerous modern machines and should have lost its top spot years ago.

Hmmm. I waited a full year since I bought this one to review it. I really like how the extra bling of the Royal is worked into it - color changes with each ramp shot, speaker lights change with it, interactive backbox lights (subtle), topper, extra large color display (awesome improvement). We played one at Expo and thought that the game was somehow better and it grabbed our attention. One NIB became available and we grabbed it - last off of the line (at least in the 2020 run). It was great and we played it a lot when we first got it to try to learn it and learn some strategies. That was a fun time working through that. Not many choices for strategies. Its fun to play, trolls add a different element, but for points, it's just basically hit the castle all day for max points. The scoring is a little unbalanced in that respect. The honeymoon was over after a few months, but was still fun to play. Is it the best pin out there? No. Is it a really cool updated game with max bling and flash? Yes. It compliments other games in our collection and will be very popular with guests. It will be anchored to our collection for a long while, but it's not a "forever keeper" for us.

I own the royal edition along with Iron Maiden LE, Monster Bash LE, Jurassic Park Prem and Star Trek Prem. Medevial Madness is good but I would rank it 5th in my line up. Iron Maiden LE and Jurassic Park and Monster Bash LE are played way more than MM when people come to visit. People rank this pinball as #1 for a reason so I probably need to put more time in and learn the machine better.

Wow, this is not a clunker. Smooth shots all the time! Flow is great and satisfying. After playing DP or STh you can appreciate the master flow this pin has. Simple and rewarding. A+

MM is a fun game but the code is just not deep enough to keep you coming back. I do love blowing up the castle and hitting the trolls, but I always feel like I’m shooting the same objective. Older games in general suffer from dated code when compared to modern games.

Fun game to play on location. Not deep. Seems like it’s the same couple shots over and over again. I don’t think I’d ever own it. Not really sure why it’s ranked number 1 other than people feel the need to score it a 10 for god knows what what reason. It’s a cool game but in my opinion is not top 5 by any means.

My second perfect score for a game! I got to play this quite a bit recently, and the remake table is outstanding! The quality feels superior to anything else at the arcade. This game never gets old and even draws in non pinball fans. Along with Monster Bash, this is perfection! Wish I could afford one... ;)

It's no accident this game is usually a top rated game. It's just the epitome of what a game should be. Perfect theme integration. Easy rules to follow, yet very challenging. Progresses so well

I was very lucky to acquire one during the pandemic and it's quickly become my most played game and booked the floor.

If you are too own only one game, this is a good candidate. The remake is solidly constructed as well, with Chicago fixing some of the problems that plagued the original like plastic posts changed to metal.

If I have one complaint its the same music playing constantly. Although it's perfect with the theme. Truly a classic and maybe the goat (although for me its probably potc).

Kills Monster bash though, what a joke that game shouldn't be in the top 20

It is the standard in which to beat. Medieval Madness has been and always will be my favorite machine.

The callouts, gameplay, toys and design haven't been beat in over 20+ years. It's that freaking good.

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

Amazing! The large color dmd makes a huge difference and the topper was perfectly designed for this game. Gameplay is easy to understand yet challenging and the sound bytes are funny. It has it all, a dragon, ogres, a chicken being catapulted..

I could sell it for nearly double what I paid for it and yet I like it so much, I can’t bring myself to sell.

My family and friends have previously owned and/or currently own many of the top 100 machines on pinside. These machines get lots and lots and lots of playtime! Medieval Madness, is a huge favorite and second only to MB in games played. CG RM edition is in the family and absolutely the creme de la creme of all machines released to date. Deserves no less than the number 1 spot all time on this ranking site. The machine speaks for itself, Nuff Said.

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