This is a very fun game. Love the pop up trolls. The shots to make the castle explode are great. The ramps are fun. The rule set is easy to understand. My girlfriend plays pinball and this is one of her 2 favorite games.

I enjoy this game a lot and can understand why it's rated at the top of the top 100 (not that the top 100 on the list is the best way of determining what is good versus what isn't). I have gotten a chance to play this more since my initial review, and I had more fun than I thought I would and therefore I'm updating my review to a better score. The game really grows on you and the castle is a great toy. The shots flow well and the game plays at a nice speed - something that less experienced pinballers could handle, but good enough that people that like a challenge (such as myself) still are easily amused. I can see this game finding its way into my gameroom someday.

Got to play the pro remake several times and the color lcd is a great addition. Definitely on my wish list with lasting playability for the entire family.

What all games should strive to be. Great toys, layout, code, and theme.

This is my most favorite game out of any machine I have ever played. I will be extremely hard pressed to ever sell it.
The game play is easy enough to make anyone feel like they are doing well while to rules make this sooo difficult to beat.
The quantity of time and attempts at this game probably surpass all other played games combined.

Same as the original for the most part. It "seems" better though somehow. The lighting seems better and maybe the colors or sharper graphics??? A fun pin that's a little corny. I would play it on location every time. If I had tons of money, I would probably buy this one ... but don't think it is the best pin out there.

The shots on this game are so tight and those damn trolls lose your ball the majority of the time. The slingshots are too strong and often send the ball to the gutter. I was a little disappointed.

Just like the original

Great theme and artwork. Easy ruleset. Machine plays slow and reptative music hurts the lastability. The original machine plays better than the Remake.

Classic game.

Remake doesn't play as nice as the original though. Flipper lag and doesn't feel as solid.

This is the game that got me in to pinball. I played it for hours throughout college and bought the remake when I had enough scratch. It's always fun, there's a simple to understand ruleset, it can be enjoyed by experts and novices, it's just a great game.

This Game Is for sure a top 3!! I just love it. But monster bash will be in soon. Iron Maiden is my #1 pick of my games.

Love the pop ups and shooting the castle...this one is a lot of fun

Honestly, this game was good in its day, but now it is like saying buying an old 20 or 30 year old car, drives better than a 2018 model! Can't understand why these old tables get rated so high, when modern tables are so much better!!

I have owned this pin for awhile and have played hundreds of games. I love it. I also own AFMr, and while they share some similarities (fan layout, destruction of a key item with a shaker, etc.), they feel so different and I can play them back to back forever.

It is one of the funniest games out there. I like the strategy of stacking multiball eligibility so that more super jackpots are lit. The castle blowing up is one of the best things in any pinball.

My only beef is that it is a really dark game. I solved that with Pinstadium lights.

Deserves to be one of the classics of pinball.

a pinball classic to say the least.. no wonder its number 1 ranked lots of fun

A classic game that’s not to deep. It’s a game that seems approachable by anyone of any skill level. Cheesy humor and call outs , good simple score, Pin Stadiums a must in my book. I like having a classic with today’s technology, I will consider all of the Remakes after a great experience with this game.

I like the theme, artwork, lighting, and bash targets.
The trolls are great and the castle is really satisfying to hit.
Awesome game.
Will stay in my collection for sure !

Dan Forden at his best for music, excellent rules, very efficient layout and a great toy. CGC has respected this masterpiece.

It's a fun game that I get tired of after only a few plays. I understand it is the all time number 1 on this site but I just can't get into it. I really wish the music was better. The falling down castle has got to be the greatest toy of all time, but I really want something better than the default merlin on the machine. Additionally, I have yet to see a medieval madness in the wild where the castle fully works. The trolls are cool. All in all a cool machine but not my all time number 1.

it took a while for me to like this game, but once i learned the rules, it became as perfect as its rating has been foretold

Rules are the weakness of this game. The game needs more diverse strategies to attack it. Only lasted six months in our collection.

This rated as the top machine of all time for a reason. I didn’t play this growing up so there is no nostalgia factor in my rating. This is just a great designed, classic game with great toys (castle, trolls, etc) and theme.

A color DMD on the remake is a must. It just adds a ton to the game. The call outs and humor in the game are great as well. Some of the valley girl damsel stuff is very 90’s and dated but still fun nonetheless.

I have heard some say the remake doesn’t play as well as the original but I’ve played the original a few different places and there isn’t much difference. The remake has newer parts and is probably more reliable, though. Where I think Chicago Gaming could have (and should have) done a better job is on the speakers. The voices at times are a bit muffled and higher quality speakers would have been nice, particularly at this price point.
