Rating #276 of 10 26 days ago
I will be honest, this was the first EM I owned. I did like very much, had I not been offered what I was, I would have kept it. It was a fun fast game. It does suffer, in my opinion of a lack lust back glass. The game play was great. Very fun. I liked the asymetrical playfield and it had many targets. Very fun game and I will most likely purchase another if I find one for the right price.

I am not a fan of the wide body machines, I have played several and owned 2. This machine I did not care for, found to be very slow. Did have a neat kick out on the left of the machine, but a whole lot of realestate and not a lot of targets. It was one of the 2 wide body machines I had, I much prefered Star race. I found it to be a cooler game to look at then play.

CRAZY multiball, overall fun game. I know the movie is cheesey, but this machine is for real. I have a blast when I play it. Not my favorite game of all time, but still a keeper.

I just purchased and find to be a fun and challanging game. It has a swinging target in the middle which is fun. I dressed w/ silicon sleeves on flippers and now very fast. I find it fun and a challange. Sound is not good, but grows on you. overall a solid machine.

This is a fast EM with lots of targets and bonus points available. It has a swinging target in the middle. William 3 bell tones keeps the sound nice when scoring. Great example of the top of what EM can be. I enjoy this game.

I liked the game, but do not like to play for a high score. The 1 milion point pit shot makes almost all other shots on the game fall to the back. The multi ball is veyr hard to get same as a bonus ball. It would have been more fun if rules of the game were different. On the plus side, the wall with guards behind was fun. Overall game play was fun, just the scoring was bad.

This is one the the top games I played. It came out when I was in college, I plaayed at the bar where I worked. I had kept my eye out for one and purchased. The DMD component of the game, multiball, number of shots available all make it a winner. I replaced all lights w/ LEDS and it just about blinds you at times, which makes it even more fun. This is another game I just keep playing. I will say even my friend keep playing.

I liked this machine so much I purchased 2 times. It is a classic for the period, fun and challanging. Many targets and great flow and the playfield. I have detailed mine with LEDs, and makes the game even stronger with good lighting Just so much fun and will help build your skills, a go to game in my collection.

Doctor Who was a severe disappointment because the theme and art drew me in only to give me a water-down PIN*BOT experience with the machine's Dalek voice driving me insane the whole time. There aren't many great shots to the game and the overall play is fairly dull, which is manageable when the sound is off. But the sounds made me run away after a few tries and I don't think I'll even torture myself with a Doctor Who again.

Eight Ball Champ is a sniper's game, but the listing, wandering ball slows down game play too much to make this shooter a fun experience. Not a great game, try Eight Ball Deluxe instead.

tired of rock themes

Freefall is one of the only Stern widebodies I can play for long. Landing that rear-facing center shot is fun and builds to a multiball (takes some skills). Aside from the widebody and the center kicker, there is a lot of unused shooting space on the playfield and if the flippers aren't shooting clean, the game crawls and stutters. Also, watch out for the double flippers on the left - no traps allowed, gotta shoot on the fly or pass from those suckers.

And above average (but barely) early SS, worth picking up if you can find one for a decent price.

Harlem Globetrotters on Tour is a boring ol' brick that offer little in the way of game play. The in-line drops are there... and that's all the fun you'll have with this transition piece. Not really worth the quarters, but it's nice to set a drink on when you're playing a good game beside it.

Earthshaker is surprisingly agile considering its crowded playfield and numerous loops and ramps. The skill shot is fun (like PIN*BOT), but it might take up too much room. The VUK is a nice touch to change momentum and, of course, the shaker motor fires up for multiball, which adds to the thrill of the game. If it weren't for some of those little touches, the game would fall flat and be a run-of-the-mill late SS, but there's enough going on to keep me wanting to shoot a few more balls. Not addictive, but not repulsive.

Addams Family offers a variety of shots and "special effects", but the overall flow of the game is a sort of surge then flail experience. I'm also not a fan of Thing flipping for me (because he's usually off - even though this feature can be disabled, you never know what you'll get on location). The chair scoop is a little too close to the flippers and some of the shots in the back are too obscured by all the crap on the field (the spinner, the other scoop, etc.). Finally, while "The Power" magnet is entertaining, it add too much randomness and broken momentum to be of any value.

I really think this game takes a special kind of player to appreciate - and I'm not him.

Sorcerer is pretty awesome. I wish it had one or two more elements when it comes to rules and strategy, but this game is pretty dang cool.
Rating #276 of 89 26 days ago
Nice art. Awful game. Simple as that.
Rating #276 of 89 26 days ago
Beautiful backglass, incredible sound. This is a cool game, however there are only 2 shots to go for, maybe 1 (the inline drops for bonus X and spotting pyramid).
Rating #276 of 14 26 days ago
Simple rules. I love the pop bumper location and the 4 flippers are perfect. A little too much relies on getting in the lit saucer for the 10x bonus for the targets, but that is OK.
Rating #276 of 89 26 days ago
Artwork is great, inline drops are cool, otherwise a game that is too simple. The bank of standup targets is only half accessible from the flippers.
Rating #276 of 89 26 days ago
There is a reason only 365 of these were made. Artwork is incredible, the game design is an absolute joke. Very little to this game.

Simple game but surprisingly fun. Not sure about the lastability, would need to play it more.
Rating #276 of 6 26 days ago
Love the game, can't stop playing it! In a dark setting the lighting can be a little annoying making it hard to see the ball. Not sure if it's just me as I have a hard time seeing in low light. I don't think this is ever going to leave my house. I haven't played pinball since the 1990s and this caught my attention. Seeing it online vs live is totally different. As soon as I saw it live I had to have it. Was a little afraid I might get board with it but there is so much going on you want to keep playing. I do have a little hum in the speakers, maybe some EMI, not sure.

Having played this pin quite a bit over the last 4 months, I am confident in giving it an excellent rating. It is a lot of fun and has good depth. Very underrated in my opinion.

When you play a TZ the first thing that hits you is the art and play field quality. This game set every standard for how games should be made. Variety, ingenuity (ceramic ball !) and magnetic flippers still make this the best playing "franchised" theme of all time ! Kudos to Rod Serlings wife for dropping his trademark cigarette from the back glass art too. Truly hard to find a flaw for this game.
