“I grew up playing this game and have thousands of plays on it. The level of difficulty on it is just right. I've been close to turning it over but haven't which is about perfect to me.

The backglass deluxe is an awesome feature that makes the game even more attractive when it is close.

A true classic and the best of its era.”

“A great machine, makes you really want to try a tube shot.”

  • “A true classic, in my opinion the best of it's era.”

  • wingnut has this game on the wishlist.

  • “This is a great players game, lots of objectives and highly complex. The drawback is it's complexity as it takes a few games to really figure out what's going on and just pounding away won't yield results like picking your shots. Capturing prisoners and then freeing them, setting the bombs and escaping is a good objective for the multiball, and a progressive jackpot for escape makes scoring high.”

  • “Plays very slow and the old school short flippers make for a huge center drain. A long ball is a rarity as is an enjoyable game”

  • “Police Force is fun for ramp to ramp shots similar to Rocky and Bullwinkle. It was fun when I had it, but it's spot is now occupied by another pin. Love the blue flashing light topper on Saturday night watching Cops on Fox. Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do?? When Sheriff John Brown come for you?”

  • “This is a beautiful game and a special theme to me. Unfortunately, the gobble holes ate my enthusiasm and I could not keep her.....”

  • “I can play Getaway for hours. LEDs are a mandatory upgrade as the stock lighting leaves much to desire. I remember this being the first game I saw with metal ramps and I think it ties in well with the theme. Very fast. Mucho fun. There's a reason this is ranked high amongst games that are newer (read technology), wider, and 4x the price and planning/design budget. This is a classic that will never grow tiresome. Love it.”

    “Love this game, classic.”

  • “My god this is an awful game. I played it at the Australian Pinball Expo in 2014. The captive ball in the centre is a massive device and dominates the playfield leaving very little room to shoot for anything else. It is a marvellous museum piece though, looking very 70's, very Atari and of course it was Steve Ritchie's first game.”

    “Possibly one of the most beautiful playfields ever made, and one of the most interesting and detailed backglass ever made as well. The playfield has some cool features including a gate on the right out-lane that can close to put the ball back to the flippers. Overall, a very fun game and a challenging one that has very good playability and lastability, in my opinion. Kind of odd that they didn't make the game have more connections to Elton John's music, but that's beside the point. This game is available for play at the Seattle Pinball Museum.”

    “As a Gottlieb EM enthusiast through-and-through, I have a special place in my heart for this game. Although the drop-targets can be a bit infuriating, the game overall is lots of fun and keeps you coming back as you try to master it. Classic Gottlieb playfield artwork and back-glass as well.”

  • “When all my friends started playing arcade games in junior high school, I was captivated by this pinball machine (ok, I played video games too, but spent a big chunk of my "arcade time" after school or whatever playing Gorgar). The back-glass, the voice capabilities, the playfield lighting, and the playability of this game kept me coming back for more.

    Even though I'm an EM guy, this is one of my very top early SS games. I would probably not own it in my personal collection, but if you want a fun, classic playable SS from the very beginning of "talking" pinball machines, this is the game for you!”

    “Awesome. Love the sounds and lights. Keep coming back to play this...will have to buy one.”

    “Love that talking head. Though a lot of fun to play from time to time, I question it's lastability if I owned it. Left side of play field is crowded.”

  • deibert has this game on the wishlist.

  • “Here is a theme I can get into! Love the variety of shots from all four flippers. This is a game that requires strategy and accuracy. Stacking the right modes with multiball is challenging. Though a "stop and go" game, there are some fast flowing moments. The music get a bit tiring, and I wish the main Twilight the game's one major design flaw. I wish there was more incentive to play modes, rather than time them out. Wizard mode is awesome.”

  • “I'm usually more of a fan of modern games but I find Diner to be a great machine. The audio is so distinctive with some of the best music and most recognisable callouts. Its got a good layout and art is top notch. Very much like Taxi in terms of rules, you're just feeding people instead of giving them lifts to the airport, but I think I prefer this one over Taxi ever so slightly. I wouldn't own one as theres not much to do but I'll will always play it when I see it.”

    “Fun game and have owned 2 of them. Pretty basic gameplay but non-pinheads like it and I can tell them the story of Pinbot/Bride of Pinbot. Casino Run and gambling earned points is a nice feature. Only low points is the music.”

  • “What a great game. I always want to play one more game. I love the Sparky toy and the flow of the game. A great job from Stern.”

    “This game is awful. It feels rushed and cheap. I was looking forward to this game so much because I am a huge fan of the show but this game is awful. Horrible call outs, no voices from the show, and no flow. What a let down”

    “One game that i wish I still had, was really a fun game kids liked it had alot to do with a cool video mode, over all a solid game with nothing bad to say”

  • “another game i wanted to like but just never could get into, felt very repetitive and the sound quality was poor. It was one of my first couple pins and left without really playing it that much.”

  • nci1119 has owned this game in the past.

  • “Owned the game for about 3 years tried to play it many times but never really cared for it, seemed very repetitive, call outs were annoying and i never got into the game. I tried to like it because of the gambling theme but just didn't.”

  • nci1119 has owned this game in the past.

  • “Definitely a great theme and a fun game, with some cool gimmicks and shots. But the widebody slows down the pace a bit and the layout is not my favorite. I need some more time to fully appreciate the game.”

    “I really don't know why this game gets such bad ratings, the sound quality is not that great but other than that i think the game play itself is pretty good and the theme is cool it has some hard shots.”
