“I am very biased. This is a great game that we had at the bar that was by our cabin when I was a little kid. This is the game that actually got me into pinball. I love the slide targets. Please, someone, give me this machine!”

  • jakep47 has this game on the wishlist.

  • “Used to own this one. .it was OK but nothing crazy fun ..i wish i would have keep it since i got it for free but something smoked in it and my girl freaked and down the road it went. .would have been worth fixing I'm sure. Hard to find fun in older games with the deepness of newer ones honestly. .”

  • zipwipple has owned this game in the past.

  • “I played this game for the 1st time yesterday at a fellow collectors house.
    its a fun pin. interesting rule set. simple but challenging playfield layout. awesome skill shot that really requires skill to hit. great risk-reward shots and one of the best spinner shots ive ever seen. these don't show up often. if you get the chance to play one don't pass it up.”


    “I am usually a System 3 apologist. I like Barb Wire, SF2, Freddy, almost all of them. This one falls way short though.

    The sound and callouts are below par, very repetitive.

    While there is alot going on in the layout, none of it flow together. The upper kinda playfield area is dull and hard to see with ramps going over it.

    The art is very Saturday morning cartoonish. And not in a good way. Big Hurt has great art...don't know what happened here.

    Not very fun, and like most system 3's, really unbalanced scoring. I am a huge Shaq fan in real life, but the pin does not translate into fun.”


    “Can't say anything that hasn't already been said. Awesome game!!!! Game is a blast for any level of pinball player!”

  • McPin54 has this game on the wishlist.

  • “Wagon Train is a game from 1960 that I found at the Manitou Springs arcade.

    The Pros:
    This is a game that requires a good deal of nudging, skill, and reflexive shots all over the place field. There is a double special scoring mechanism on the table that requires a one through five shot target to be scored from the red and the purple feathers to get your specials. The one through five targets can either be scored from the skill shot at the top of the playfield, or from the Roto target just above the flippers.. Getting a special is never easy, but when the 100 point Rototarget shows up, that is your jackpot shot! The art package, in particular the back glass looks fantastic. The bumpers between the flippers require nudging so you're bumping skills are going to be in effect all throughout the playfield from the top to the bottom.

    The Cons:
    Finding one. I didn't even see this game at the pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas.

    The Takeaway:
    A great game from a long time ago. If you can find one, give this thing some time. It's a true player!”

  • “played this game at the Pinball Hall of Fame (Las Vegas) last week, second time in a year I've been out there and both times I found myself hooked on it. Four years ago at an Ohio show I walked past this machine 100 times, the troll was a turn off. Finally played it and was surprised how good it was. Maybe my expectations were just so low. But after last week I'm hooked. Hard game to find to play on location. Really don't see it anywhere. After playing the crap out of it in Vegas this is definitely on my list of must have. If you can get past the look of the troll doll you're golden. So much going on in this game! Ramps are unique and awesome! Almost too many shots! Four flippers. Why in the heck
    is this rated so low. I will own this one by year end! So glad it's cheap, now just have to find a nice one! This game would suck if it has weak flippers. Make sure the flippers are strong.”

  • “Played this game at a friend's house and absolutely fell in love with the game. I just had to get it and can't stop playing it. It flows, has multiple shots. Theme is awesome. I love it and absolutely recommend it to anyone planning on putting it in their collection.”

  • SuperPinball currently owns this game.

  • “Great game, I still have a blast playing it. The game is full with toys and gimicks, and the theme is incredibly well incorporated in the game. The frankenstein multiball is well thought out and can be used to stack in other monster modes. I still haven't beaten it, but I'm getting closer!”


    “Pretty, but ultimately a boring game that boils down to one shot. My least favorite in the PinBot series.”


    “One of the most unremarkable Stern games in recent memory. It doesn't really do anything WRONG, per se, but it doesn't do anything for me. The layout seems too similar to Spider Man, which has a better theme, better art, and just does everything better. The best thing Star Trek has going for it is the light show.”


    “I've played this one dozens of times, and have had about one decent game on it. Good layout, incredible software, but it seems like there's too much grinding to put in for a decent score.

    Great art, theme, callouts, etc.”


    “Beautiful and deep. Pretty fun. Takes some time to figure out how to play, but not as confusing as some recent Stern titles. I wouldn't kick this one out of bed for eating crackers.”


    “Very fun and challenging. Decent shot variety. Good-looking game. A bit too linear, but still very enjoyable.”


    “nice game,whit a lot off variation”

    “Metallica has grown on me quite a bit lately. I wish it was a bit more transparent how to progress in the game right out of the gate, but once you figure it out, it's one of Stern's best efforts. Inline drop targets rule, Sparky is fun but a bit corny, layout is pretty decent and shots flow well. Looks great, sounds great, and plays pretty damn well; if only scoring was a bit more intuitive this could be a top 10 game for me.”

    “Fun to play, but I wouldn't want to own one.

    The modes are decent, but the layout is unremarkable, and it's a bit too easy and straightforward. Theme is decent.

    Enjoyable but unspectacular. Overall, feels like 275 lbs of literally SOME pinball to me.”

  • “I'm not a Star Trek fan in the first place, and this game doesn't do anything to convert me. This game loses points for having modes that are best timed out, and for being too simple in multiball; The first time I played on in recent memory, I got two balls on the right flipper, and shot the jackpot shot a few times in a row with the left flipper, which was extraordinarily dull.

    It's worth noting, there may have been a switch error on the one I've spent the most time with, so I may be missing something,”


    “An absolutely gorgeous game that falls flat on its face in the gameplay department. There aren't enough shots that matter.

    In a tournament, it becomes a one-note pony very quickly.”


    “A great-looking, great-sounding game, but lacking in the gameplay department.

    The mode start shot is too hard, particularly for a shot that rejects so frequently (really a design flaw,) and scoring ultimately boils down to multiball all day long. Couple that with a decent-but-unremarkable layout, and you've got a widebody game with less to actually shoot for than most normal body games.

    A fun game to play around with on occasion, but not one I'll ever feel the need to own.”


    “This one took quite a while to grow on me; the scoring is convoluted, but once you finally figure out what you're doing, there's way more depth than one might guess.”


    “Elvira is just an OK game in my mind. The shots get repetitive, and the scoring isn't clever enough to make up for that. The art is OK, and sound is pretty decent. There's nothing in the overall package that makes it particularly fun for me.

    I have a feeling this game's popularity has to do more with Elvira herself and the cheesecake theme than the actual game.”


    “This is a very simple and fun game. I used to have it in my collection, and I wish I never sold it. The only problem with Fish Tales is that there is little to no speech. Overall I would recommend it to anybody. If you see one in an arcade, play it.”
