Rating #326 of 9 1 month ago

Played a rough one in a pizza joint. Fun, but the place was too loud to really let me hear the callouts, etc. Seems like it could be a fun game.

Great game. I played one with Laser sights and color DMD so I might be a bit biased but this is a great machine. I am partial to the theme too...

Fun game and properly done looks amazing, good music and SFX but not very deep. I think its highly under rated. If you can find one and its working great in a larger collection.

Simply put; I can't wait to play it again. I would love to own it!!

For a stern this game has great artwork and just looks awesome. The rules are well put together and the game has a ton of shots. Maybe 2 many shots as they are so tight it's really hard to consistently hit your targets. The wolverine bash toy issues have been beaten to death. Yes it's to big and blocks to much. I love the physical ball lock under magneto and the nightcrawler pop ups are a nice addition. This game truely has it all. Just be prepared that the shots are really tight. Overall a really nice change of pace for Borg on this design. This game is a fantastic value for what they are currently going for. One of sterns best games in my opinion.

This is a great concept - but in execution, it unfortunately falls short... The game relies on essentially a gimmick that doesn't really work, and therefore makes this game pretty unplayable after a couple turns.

This game, the perrenial number one here, is a worthy choice. It has the depth and speed of the best games - but what separates it is the sound. The humerous callouts (channeling Monty Python, Valley Girls, and anything else that parodies the genre) are as good as it gets. Once you get rolling, there may not be a more fun game. TZ has better artwork, toys and a more interesting Lawlor layout - but doesn't deliver quite the pow of MM. That being said, it would be easy to argue that there are about 15 titles that could be "number one" in pinball.

One of the more creative playfields i've played. Shadow is a blast. I love the mini playfield and the diverter options. People are ashamed of the backglass but I would just leave it alone. I love "ugly" themes and bad ass pinball and this one is a killer.

Love it. Green mode is cool and the light show is amazing, music and SFX are all good.


Rating #326 of 32 1 month ago

Really cool game. I love the layout of the playfield and everthing just feels smooth. Nice shots. I have no problem with the theme at all. Nevermind if the film was good or bad. This pinball does a great job capturing that jungle vibe with all the sounds and animations. Bad ass pinball.

Road Show is a fantastic game! Definitely want to play it again. Personally, I find it to be more fun than games like Addams Family and Funhouse, especially because of the quotes from Red and Ted, the sounds, the shaker. It's all good. I love the road construction theme and the game does a great job realizing it. I love the music and call outs and i'm not a country guy. I would love to own one someday.

Disappointed. This game plays slow, the angles are poorly conceived... I wanted to like this.


Rating #326 of 20 1 month ago

There's a strong argument that this should be a Top Five game... The theming, artwork, music, game design and play are superb.

I like the theme, but this game is just sooo bad.


Rating #326 of 25 1 month ago

I really like pins with odd asymmetrical layouts and great artwork - my favorite game of all time is Game Plan's Andromeda. I got to play Strange World recently at an art show in Toronto, and that really cemented my opinion of it: I wanted one! I finally lucked up and brought home a nice one.

While there are no drop targets, I don't really miss them on this game. There are 12 total targets: 6 rollovers, and 6 standups. If you can cradle the ball (not easy!), you can backhand the green and yellow 2s pretty reliably. The toughest shots are the 1 and 4 just above the left and right drains, which require skillful Shatzing. Once I've lit up a few columns, I try to keep sending the ball back to the top rollovers. The danger zones are the yellow #2 rollover, the "big mouth guys" triangle under the #1 target, and the exit from the left side of the pop bumpers. Keeping the ball in play requires skillfull nudging. Drop catches are especially tough on Strange World, because any residual momentum can send the ball up and over the sides. Strange World indeed!

I really love this pin as well as the alien theme. I'm a huge Sci-Fi fan so I'm really drawn to this pin. Overall the game is fairly simplistic and straight forward. I love the open play field Martian Multiball, Total Annihilation, and Conquer Mars never get old! I really enjoy the call outs even if they are slightly repetitive. Rule the Universe is a four-ball wizard mode that is pretty awesome as well.

Overall I don't think I'll ever be getting rid of this pin. Even though I've had it for years I'm still excited to play it every time I hit that start button. She is a keeper.

This game never gets old. The theme is one that will last forever and I find really appealing. The sound, animations, and lighting are excellent in addition to the call outs. I don't care how many times I hear "SUUUPPPPER JACKPOT!!!" it's doesn't get old for me. The trolls are a really cool toy and add that random element. This game has great flow as I really enjoy the open play field. I love the shots as they really don't get boring and nothing beats blowing up the castle! The ruleset is straight forward but finishing Battle for the Kingdom can be somewhat of a challenge. MM is a top contender no doubt.

On a side note MM mimics AFM quite a bit as far as the play field is concerned. I kinda feel like they reused the AFM layout with some slight differences in shots. Nonetheless, this is still one my favorite pins next to TZ and AFM.

You can basically just hit the ball anywhere to score and the saucer is repetitive boredom, also talking about scores they are ridiculously high, other than that the sound and lights make it seem half decent.

Take down the monkeys!!!

My first EM, and a revolution of sorts for me. Though I always had an appreciation for the beauty, and simplicity or EMs, I never thought I'd want to own one.

This game is a wonderful palette cleanser between white knuckle modern DMD (and LCD) games.

Chimes are beautiful. Playfield colours are sweet. If you get a chance, get your hands on a Jungle Queen.

I have had this game for around 8 months now and play it almost daily!! It is just fantastic. I used to be a huge BW fan and this game makes the BW games look like clunky old turds. It is fast and furious and engaging.

Pro:

The layout is so fantastic - the ramps and orbits are buttery smooth with nice tight shots and really punish low accuracy

The rules are very simple and any average player can start trying to turn out huge scores almost immediately

I have the VE and initially I wasn't a big fan of the super bright LEDs in the GI, but over time I"ve grown to love them and it makes every other game looks yellow and garish

I enjoy the one ball exponential points from achieving do or die. These rules remind me of a throwback to games like Taxi where you had one ball to achieve it all

Stackability of the whiplash and war machine multi balls is great as well as the iron man fast/double scoring

The music is so intense and the callouts are from the actual actors

So much more

Cons:

My only qualm is that I think the iron monger comes up much too frequently

Overall I see myself keeping this game for along time.

I borrowed one of these in really nice condition from a fellow pinhead. I couldn't get rid of it fast enough. The game is such an incredible bore. I don't get what people see in it. I tend to like all eras of games, especially early SS, but this title didn't click with me.

Pros:

One of the most amazing backglass art packages. Absolutely gorgeous.

The layout is really cool and really flings the ball wildly around the playfield.

Love the double flipper layout at the bottom

Sounds are really well done and match the theme very well

Cons:

The multiball is so hard to get and when you do it tends to drain super quick

I hate how you lose your ball if you don't drop the targets on the lower PF. I think this is just super cheap.

Overall I just find the game to be like a hot girl with no personality. It looks really pretty but deep inside it's just an empty box.

Classic game. Simple rule set, impossible to master.


Rating #326 of 77 1 month ago

Great game and some tricky little shots, nice long ramp shot on the left, good mini playfield adds a good touch, I like the playfield art it should be rated higher in the top 100, but I believe its due to the theme although I love it, (awesome nostalgia if your a wwf/wwe fan).


Rating #326 of 7 1 month ago

An ok game. You really need to like NASCAR to love this one. The way the ball loops around is really cool.


Rating #326 of 7 1 month ago

Fun pin. The magnets add a bit of excitement, as does the huge multiball (which is not that hard to get). I'm not sure about replay value. Can't stand the Crystal Skull theme.
