Very fun game. Callous are excellent. Trolls, castle, catapults, princess all great. Music and sounds are good. A couple of sort of fu. Hidden surprises. Only knock might be its not extremely deep from a rules perspective but maybe its just deep enough.

This was a game that getting into the hobby a few years ago (pre remakes) I never thought i would own because of the pricing. I had a chance to play it a game on location and my initial thought on this game was it is extremely cool to shoot at the castle and to blow it up but man that would get boring with the rinse and repeat on it. Well enter owning it now and really getting a chance to see how cool the code is in this game. Yes there is a top level simple way to approach this game and also a deeper more thought/skill based way to shoot it. Add that with the awesome theme and great toys and I totally understand why this game has been #1 for so long. I am really glad I decided to take a chance on this and see what all they Hype was about on it. This is a game that will not be going anywhere anytime soon, and kudos to CGC for allowing us to upgrade our games to the Royal package, while the color changing GI is not my favorite thing (I think it is a little darker and hard to see than the standard white) the new XL display and sound package is where its at! Also one of the cooler toppers designed in the last 5+ years.

I can see why this game is rated so highly. The castle mech with bridge was fun and the pop up trolls really packed a lot in for a small space. Ramp and loop shots feel like butter. Wish I got more time to play it.

I'm not sure I think this is the BEST pinball machine ever made but it certainly is good

Top-rated for a reason. Even when it seems simple and like you should be killing it, the tension of hurry-ups or trying to stack more Madness kicks in to add pressure. Hilarious, masterfully coded and flow for days when you spam the ramps. Wows new players and doesn't get old for experienced ones.

THE one and only. This highly original game arrived a couple years after AFM and somehow improved on it with more to do and even better humor. Probably the funniest pin ever, and the music, art and theme are well integrated. The 2 ramps are a blast to shoot. The catapult is genius, and makes even better use of the ramp. The castle might be the best toy ever made, with a drawbridge AND a gate to defeat, plus you can blast thru the wall with a solid shot. All that would be plenty, plus you get two pop-up trolls who make life difficult. I always liked this game and respected it, but now I see this game for the masterpiece it is. I let it go once. Never again.

I never played the original, but I played the take and after one hour on it, I now join the thousands who want to own one.

This is probably as close to a perfect game as it gets.

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.

One of the all-time classics, this pin has it all. The callouts are top notch, the castle is a fantastic gimmick, the trolls are great, throw a color dmd on it and this is a beaut! I know the game can be a bit repetitive and isn't the deepest, but it sure is fun to play.

Awesome game. Corny but fun with lots of options to progress

A great game that's just plain fun to play. Nice design, rules that I could grasp fairly fast, and callouts to add to the experience. Destroying the castle several times is always fun, and I enjoyed the varied shots needed (not that I made many) to succeed. An excellent machine that even as a low-medium skilled player was enjoyable and has me looking forward to my next chance to play

The gold standard!

This game is near the top in every list for a reason, it's always a favorite of guest or family alike.
The shots are satisfying, the castle toy and mechs are brilliant, and the theme is perfectly integrated. If you just want to get on a machine and have fun, this is it. If you want to try and do something other than bash the castle, you have many other options and objectives to try and stack, and it's a pleasure to do it.

The rules are straight forward, but still deep enough to keep me coming back to this one. The callouts are varied and funny. Music is good, but gets a bit annoying after a long game. Most shots feels rewarding, especially when destroying castles or shooting that narrow multiball shot next to it for super jackpots. I would imagine this game would pretty quickly get repetitive if I would own it, but for a few games every now and then on location it's perfect.

This is one of the greatest games ever and Chicago Gaming did a great job with the remakes. As an arcade owner this is consistently a top earner. As a collector, this game deserves a place in most collections. This games earns a spot in the top ten as it rightly deserves. Is this my favorite game of all time? NO! But it certainly ranks up there with the best.

Pros - Fun Game, great humor and callouts (Tina Fey!), layout is oft repeated (which is a sign of greatness), destroying the castle is fun, lots of toys,

Cons - Can get a little repetitive, scoring competively (i.e. destroying castles) can get a little boring, game is a bit on the easy side (I have completed King of the Realm multiple times - so this didn't stay in my collection, but did at my arcade).

Fun is the best description I can think of for this game. I always have fun when I play it. There are tons of shots, tons of toys, good callouts, lots of multiballs and a layout that can flow or be more stop and go, depending how you play it. The artwork is great and when the castle collapses it's fun to watch the destruction. This game is often rated number one of all time and I can see the appeal, but like all pins - that's subjective. It is a mid-90s pin masterpiece, whether I consider it number one would depend on my mood and particular day - but I would think it would be towards the top for most. The code is not as deep as the modern games, but it is deep enough to keep interest. It is a great game for both casual players and those more advanced. I am stuck somewhere in the middle.

I don't think it's the best game ever, but it is a blast to play. Would love to own it someday. Fun game, great call outs, love the trolls.

As far as fan layouts go, this is a classic. I have difficulty hitting the catapult shot sometimes though. The castle not returning via wireform makes it a little less flow compared to AFM.

Really the perfect game. There are no flaws other than the high price. If you can put one in your it.

Really an excellent pinball game. Although I do not own one, it frequently eats my quarters @ Wizards World. The game plays smooth and fast. Although a few tricky shots will flush SDTM, the more you work at this game, the better it gets. Great callouts, fun toys, a really great table!
