“My World Series is restored and plays fast. One score reel for points and the second reel for runs scored doubles the pleasure, doubles the fun and doubles the opportunity to achieve add a balls. The BG has a Capt Card BG feel. My cabinet faded to an un-noticeable memory of the beautiful original color scheme seen at leg attachment areas. This is a target shooting skill set development, testing and achievement pin. Roto target adds the additional "spin" to the fun with World Series. I want to think of Fergie Jenkins when I see 31 on the players jersey.....
Great game, great fun...... From my cold dead hands......”

  • “2003 was a good year for pinball, and Stern had two of its biggest hits that year. The Simpsons Pinball Party, and Lord of the Rings.

    Sandwiched in between these two epic releases was... T3. Steve Ritchie's first design for Stern, and a chance for him to sequel his mega-popular T2 pin from a dozen years earlier.

    There are a few things that aren't so great about this game. The art is rather uninspired, the music is utterly forgettable, and there are only static toys on the play field. Personally, I feel for a SRP pin, the orbits result in way too many dead end shots that feel like they should flow back around.

    Due to these issues, I can't rate the overall machine very high. But outside of these issues, there is a pretty good game here.

    The layout takes its inspiration directly from the T2 pin, with some nice additions. The inserts are laid out much like T2, with a stack of lights indicating progress leading toward each ramp and orbit. The ball lock is in a familiar place (below a chrome head) along with a corral of 3 pop bumpers on the right.

    Diverging from and improving on T2, there is an extra tight ramp up the middle, and a captive ball. There isn't a cannon on the playfield, but there is one in the backbox in the form of an interesting mini-game.

    Rules-wise, this pin is better than most people give it credit for. I think its reputation is hampered by the stellar reputation of its 2003 neighbors - which are among the deepest two pinball games ever created. The T3 rules aren't as deep - but I find them enjoyable and easy to understand.

    The metal ramps have an awesome and satisfying sound when you hit them, and they flow very well. It's not too hard to hit left-ramp, right-ramp combos over and over. Both outer ramps are easily back-handed too. The center ramp is a bit of a different animal. It's harder to hit, but quite satisfying to do. The orbits, however, are a total flow killer. I wish full orbits were more common to this game.

    The mini-game in the back box is polarizing. Some like it, some hate it. I feel like it comes up a bit too often, but I do find it fun to shoot, and it continues to get harder each round. It's not pinball, but you play it with a ball... It's a neat toy but slightly overused.

    All-in-all, T3 is a good game, and other than music and art I feel it's a one-up on T2.”

  • “I have waited a while before rating this game. So far for me it is superior to other late 70's games like Blue Note and Strange world. And it's as good as any 70's em I have played.

    Art. For a 70's games this is as good as Gottlieb achieved in this era. Cabinet has a really vibrant orange that really pops. And the girl is cute.

    Gameplay. Well DC means a real quick game. Rules are great. Take out 7 cards of same suit to light joker. Take other 7 cards out to light the KO holes for specials. Try and play your joker when all cards lit as every rollover then scores 5000. At this point it's a specials and scoring extravaganza! The rest of the game it stays like this so at this point can really score big. KO holes scores 5000 points throughout game. It is possible to make any shot on the p/f from the flippers with a little nudge and bounce off here and there.

    Overall. Could end up being my favorite 70's game. Will update another time. And of course only 375 made and love the faux red score reels. And finally whilst you can have some really big high scoring games, most of the time it's the usual story of being near but not near enough. And just when I think it is easy it gives me a bad beating!

    Takeaway. A real fun, colorful game.”

  • “Game is so refreshing.. after playing new games, this is such a fun pin, its simple, but it is just right, best sounding 80's game hands down.. tons of "one more game" factor, and it is so different from what most are used to playing, find one of these and put 10 games on it stat.. what a value..”

  • “Fun game with long playtimes. Very satisfying to complete the three multiball modes and destroy the ring. I'm pretty much done with the game for a while after the ring goes down though.”


    “What a great pin, so much fun; great broad appeal.

    Excellent flow and an awesome original theme...Wish it came down in price, because I would love to own one.”


    “I was expecting a lot out of this pin, and was a little underwhelmed...It just didn't wow me; playfield layout is very cool, with a lot of variety...But just didn't click with me after about 5 plays.

    Would love to spend more time on it, as I feel the theme is great; cabinet art is boring; and the toys on the playfield could have been better IMO; time will tell, as would really like to spend more time with it.

    Sounds were a little underwhelming compared to other SuperHero Stern machines like Avengers and Transformers.”


    “I have had this pin for about 5 months now, have played it a ton; so feel that I am ready for a thorough review.

    Very fast game, lots of flow; out of all the DE's that I've played, I feel the flow is the best on this; if you crank up the back legs, this game is very speedy...Flippers need to be strong to be able to backhand both ramps; but love the fact that you can hit every shot on the playfield from either flipper.

    Has great appeal for kids, with the beautiful backglass and rabbit out of the hat trick.

    Scoring is heavy on the left and right ramp and on multiball, it's basic scoring, but super fun; challenging pin, as a ball that doesn't go all the way up the left ramp is usually a STDM drain, unless you nudge the machine hard; you get used to it...Gameplay can get tense at times.

    Sound is good, have pinball pro speakers and sub in it, so it literally shakes; very good variety in DMD animations and sound.

    Major knock on it is visibility in a darker room, it is hard to see the entire playfield at night; might be that I have some Blue LED's installed, but there just isn't a ton of lighting on the playfield.

    Other than that, a very fun pin, with broad appeal...the kids love it and wifey and her friends like it too...Good theme for a family game room.”

  • “Had a ton of fun won this...Wow, really liked the Fan layout, music and speech are just incredible; played on a flipper fidelity system with sub and it was literally as loud as a movie theater.

    Has broad appeal, especially if you have kids; would love to add one to my collection one day.”


    “Really was surprised by this one, played a Pro; thought the flow was great, and had a lot of fun playing it, even though there were higher rated pins right next to it.

    Great lighting, very bright playfield, which I liked...Would love to get a chance to play an LE version.”

  • “Over all one of my favorite pins that will most likely never leave my house.”

  • “Need to play it some more to firm up my opinion. I didn't play it much at the time when it came out, I guess that says something.”


    “One of the greatest games ever made as far as the actual game play is concerned. The game is fast, very fast, fun and trains your reflexes. The rules are simple but the shots are challenging. The annoying voice tells you what to go after. This is helpful if you don't know the rules but gets old very quickly after you figured it out. The artwork is OK, seen better. That's a real shame, such a great game deserved better artwork and cabinet. The regular edition is way better in terms of looks than LE.
    The play field offsets nicely against the fast moving ball, flippers are strong, the 3 bumpers work well together in the confined space up top. The side targets are relatively easy, the 8 ball and bonus multipliers are a bit more difficult.
    After you take the side targets down you're left with stand up targets which is cool. There is really not that much "stuff" on the playfield but it all works together well for a coherent whole. A game for the advanced skill level that never gets old.”

  • “I only played a handful of games on this, but my first impression was a good one. I would play it again if I got the chance.”


    “XXXXXXtreme sports!! Adrenaline!!! Jumping out of a plane....yeah!! Well laid out and FUN. Love the jump shot, and the different sports and multi-balls are great. I was at first wary of this game because of the theme, but the gameplay makes up for that. Plus it's a Steve Ritchie game!! So it FLOWWWWSSS!!”
