This game is such a hidden gem. If you've walked up to it at a show and played one game without hearing the music and callouts...or understanding rules and objectives...then you're missing a lot. This is a nicely layered mode based game. Has some great hurry-ups...a killer skill shot...and loads of very satisfying shots. There's also some unique strategic decisions that players choose throughout the game that have risk/reward implications. As a baseball fan, the game theme - for me - is killer. If you own this game...check pinrepairs tips on changing out the the coil stop with Sys 1 coil stops to make the flippers more Williams-like (and the game more challenging.

Play Ball!

My local arcade just picked up a Flash Gordon - decent early SS. I really liked the drop target series on the upper right PF and the raised PF with 2" flippers. Also, the sharp drop-off to the saucer is a unique way to get the ball back to the main PF (center down ramp). Some of the sounds drove me a little nuts, but that usually isn't a reason to dislike a game for me. rnrnFG would be a great early SS for a collection, and I'd pick one up for a good price if I found one.

I bought my Quick Draw as a learning project EM, but I ended up really liking the game play. I see why the multiple drop target games, especially the Gottliebs - are usually highly rated - so much to shoot at!

From the two horseshoe kickouts to the 2x 5-drop target banks, Quick Draw is a super fun EM. (Watch out for that AX relay though!). I'll be selling mine soon, but somewhat reluctantly now that I've seen how fun it is. Definitely would add to an EM collection after my fictional SS collection comes to fruition.

Space Station feels like a solid game, even though some of the shots are a little awkward. I like the integration of the drop target in front of the ramp, as well as the ball lock / release system.

Overall, not a bad game, and I'd add one to my collection if I needed to fill a hole. Definitely worth the play on location.

I like the playfield layout with many interesting shots. Excellent theme integration. The big DMD is a plus (as long as it's working…) with good animations.

This game is begging for an alternative David Hasselhoff-free translite…

Decent game that was probably lagging behind in comparisons to pins produced during the same period. Rules are not bad - deserves to be played over and over to discover its subtilities. Worth owning if you have space for a number of pins.

Fun but too slow for me... and finally borring.

Rating #51 of 11 4 days ago

Middle of the road DMD game. Layout and rules are good but not exceptional. I'm not a fan of the theme or artwork, and the music and callouts are just annoying. Good for a few games but I wouldn't want to own one.

Apparently Stern think a few soft porn pictures can compensate for a badly designed game. They can't. Gameplay is boring with very shallow rules and unbalanced scoring- the multiball modes are easily the most profitable, but getting there is a chore. Lame theme. The one standout feature of the game is Photo Shoot mode's blinding white flashers when you make a shot (simulating a camera flash).

I just played this game for the first time tonight. And it was a fun game !! Lots of great features !! And a great theme. I will be playing this again soon.

If you see this game and there are other machines around it, DO NOT PLAY IT. You will regret it.

Rating #51 of 43 6 days ago

Lots of shots, lots of toys, deep rule set. Game just doesn't grab me for some reason though. Overall it's a great game, just not one I want to own.

Rating #51 of 29 6 days ago

It may take a few games to get comfortable on this one, but once you figure out the rules and hazardous shots, it can be downright fun. Fully shopped/restored is mandatory, but is a keeper in the high end EM collector's gameroom.

A good game in its own right. Nostalgia reigns supreme in this one. The layout is okay and the rules are easy to follow but aside from the ramps, there isn't a ton of flow. The game's strengths lie in the theme, music and sounds. Each lock brings on a different tune, the sounds (in stereo no less) are quite good thanks to data east's sound board and the light show is excellent (if the dozens of flashers are working properly). An enjoyable game if not remarkable worthy of a few plays, just be careful of the clock tower eject It can be a straight down the middle drain.

Whoa! this is fun, challenging and lasting even though baseball is turd to me of a theme.

Rating #51 of 14 7 days ago

Theme is really front and center here. A lot of humor and wonderful toys. The dots and call outs are pretty good.

Rating #51 of 14 7 days ago

So much fun as a two player. I would like to put some time in single player but that's not where the draw is. I love the art style and humor, though that lady's nipples must be really cold. I know it's not a pinball but that's usually where it is in the arcade.

I would love to spend more time on this. The theme is one of my favorites but I didn't feel it was well implemented. It wasn't bad but I didn't come away from it thinking of the movies. The art on the playfield is a little wonky but still alright. I love the cabinet art with the sunset and side profile of Eastwood. The call outs were pretty good. Overall the gameplay was slightly forgettable but at least I would like to give it another try.

Rating #51 of 14 7 days ago

I love this game. Hard shots for the experienced players and immediate fun for the beginners. The art style is really well implemented. The creature floating through the water on the side is awesome. The music is memorable and enjoyable. And the objectives are challenging. I would love to find one someday.

same game as the base machine, just a shaker well integrated.

Esthetic aspect has been improved with all brass trims.

Great machine

Fun pinball machine with good sounds and great pf artwork.

Like the game but not rules are shallow.

Rating #51 of 41 7 days ago

Fun pinball but gets old quickly.

Sounds and callouts are good but the poor variety of the music comes boring fast.

Some good toys but overall an average game

Rating #51 of 17 7 days ago

This is one of those games that you either like....or hate. I really enjoy this game. It is one of the cheapest in my collection, but worth every penny. I get way more enjoyment than what its worth to sell it! Sure it does not compare to the 90's Williams or the newer Stern games. A real challenge to play up through the levels! The game gets progressively harder the more you complete. Always fun to work up to the Grand Master than the Champion Challenge. This game has a unique game flow and rewards that accumulate even on completed shots. It really has a retro video game feel to it for those of us that spent the 1990's in arcades. If you liked Street fighter arcade game and enjoy pinball this pin is a great choice.

Really love this game and can see enjoying it for many years to come. Great theme, depth and especially like the red star field lights for Klingon multiball!
