Rating #176 of 12 25 days ago

Great theme, great music, but otherwise uninspiring.

Rating #176 of 12 25 days ago

Very firmly a B-list game, but lots of fun. Rules aren't perfect and the game is fairly easy, but it makes up for it with a great playfield layout, well-done theme, and general fun-ness.

Rating #176 of 12 25 days ago

Lots of fun to be had. Not a deep game, but a broad one with lots to do. One of my favorites.

Rating #176 of 12 25 days ago

Good fun, terrible theme.

Rating #176 of 12 25 days ago

Deepest ruleset in pinball, but a lot of stop and go. Great theme, lackluster music. Overall a good game.

Rating #176 of 12 25 days ago

Used to be a hidden gem. Now it's just a gem. It's deserving of all the praise it gets.

Rating #176 of 12 25 days ago

This one is a beauty. But the gameplay just doesn't match the looks. Great toys and gimmicks though.

Rating #176 of 12 25 days ago

One of my personal favorites. However, the game can boil down to a ramp, chair, ramp, chair, ramp, chair grind.

Rating #176 of 12 25 days ago

Truly one of the best. Definitely deserves its place at the top.

I love it so much I want to marry it and its way better than lamp.

Pinsider audio updates have made this game way better, I was annoyed by the hillbilly voice, no longer the case.

Bally Sea Ray is my second EM. I was drawn to it for the wacky angular art of Christian Marche and the oceania color scheme. There are two tone chimes for 100 and 1000 along with the clicking of the relays and steppers. Lots of clickity-clack and ding-dongs make up the sounds that transport me back to the 1970s. The variety of features on the playfield make it challenging, quite fun, and keep me coming back for another game.

My collection is mostly faster modern SS pins but I never knew an EM could be so much fun until I started playing Sea Ray. I am going to start paying attention to more EMs in the future.

Phoenix was one of my favorites when it came out back in late 70's. It was one of the first solid state machines to join the long rows of EMs at the local Aladdin's Castle. I found it ugly as mud yet very challenging. Drop target city. I ended up buying one years later and still own it. My rating may not reflect the true essence of this pin but in all honesty there is nothing spectacular about it. Just a decent-playing early SS that happens to be a good bang for the buck pin.

This is a really great game. I felt they could've made the artwork a lot cooler on all aspects. But it's a really fun fast paced game with good angle shots. I love shooting the ship and fighting the kraken. One of my favorite games to play.

The duel linked play against someone is so much fun!

Rating #176 of 205 26 days ago

Awesome game. I think the brass trim looks great on this game. I just wish it held up better. I don't mind the gold on the backglass at all. Shaker is well integrated. Everything else is exactly as the normal pin.

Rating #176 of 205 26 days ago

Fun little cocktail pin. I like the pass thru the drops shot. Not much else to say about it.

Rating #176 of 18 27 days ago

owned for 3 years, and next to Tron, my fastest playing game. Very satisfying and fast looping shots are a feature of the game, but it's very stop start with the glove and the matrix. They are integral to the rules so actually are fun to use - just have to make sure the glove is working properly. One of the best video modes in any game - frustratingly hard but when you are in the groove and can use all 4 flipper buttons to control the little "pac man" its a blast. I would highly recommend this game for it's differences and fun to play. Dud film, but great pin.

One in my collection for 6 months now. Being a Lawlor game, nice rules with good depth and an interesting variety of shots. Red and Ted, Like Rudy before them, integrate their speech into the game well without being annoying. Shooting into the mouths is fun, but there are enough other ramp/scoop/target shots that the machine is entertaining for the long term. linear rules means it's hard to get through the game, but the city path varies enough not to get repetitive. Color DMD brings out the animations well. Nice machine for the whole family.

Owned one for a couple of years, and it's a nice game. A little limited as far as rule variety - 3 multiballs to achieve and they can be stacked for large scores, apart from that, not much more to go for. Mist Mulitball is legendary and when seen for the first time is a stunner. Still enjoy knocking that ball off the middle of the playfield. The game is well played after dark in the dark, with sinister music and is very atmospheric. Not a keeper in my book, but worth playing or owning for a while.

Tron is a pretty game, but you need to add the light wire mods to get the full effect. A little over photo-shopped, but an attractive layout nonetheless. It is a very fast playing game with very few pauses apart from the scoop. The rules are fairly simple - make a start on all the central ladder of shots to go to Sea Of Simulation, than try and complete them all for Portal. Simple to understand, but very difficult to achieve. Owned the game for 2.5 years and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The game looks cool and plays with some flow. That's about it for me. Only WOW factor is the ART.

Rating #176 of 7 27 days ago

This game is just pure fun to play. Rules are awesome, shots are nice, artwork and sound kick-ass.

Laser ball is a wiiiiiiiiddddde body. This thing is huge. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles like multi ball or some toy or gimmick but it is a pretty fun game to try and master. This game is all about getting your multiplier up. The 2x and 3x will carry over to your next ball, but once you hit 5x it resets when you drain. At 5x you also light your spinners, which you have one on each side, and they are now worth 1000 instead of 100 points. There are 9 drops to shoot. The pop bumpers on mine are really strong and can send the ball flying. This game can be pretty fast when set up right. Not an amazing game but it currently has a nice spot in my lineup and it continues to challenge me to beat the high score and play just one more game.

edit: I forgot to mention I love the sound effects on this game! there is no background music but the sounds are awesome! When you havent hit something for a few shots and its quite it builds up some tension and you know you gotta hit something soon :)

Aztec is one of my favorite EMs. Great layout with a mix of easy and hard shots. I love the backglass, bright vibrant colors that matches the theme and the era of the pin. Top of my EM collection

Rating #176 of 31 28 days ago

This machine is rated way to high IMO, objective is not obvious (for me personally the objective was to change the track before it got on your tits) shots are good, game has great flow, lighting is decent but could be better, playfield art is horrible, right out lane is obscured by canon (poor design) canon gets repetitive and the call out is annoying after a couple times, owned the premium and sold it, don't miss it.
