It is an oldie but man what a goodie! The first time I ever played this game at Silverlake I could not believe the mechanical boxers in the ring actually moved and threw punches. I am not very technical but it seems like an amazing mechanical marvel seeing it in action!

This is the most surprising pin purchase I ever made. Wrestlemania is unbelievably fun. I'm not a wrestling fan, but this table is just FLAT OUT FUN.

Lots of low ratings for WWE Wrestlemania are skewed on the low side. 1) NO ONE knew this title was coming. Rumors were Aerosmith or Ghostbusters. When this was launched people were pissed. Immediately they were turned off. Whatever. 2) Early code was not there. 3) The theme isn't for all

There are many things to do and many satisfying shots. It's also not easy (LE has the spinning disc in the ring, making pinning the opponent tough). Sound, Speech and Music are top notch. The theme is pretty much perfectly executed all around.

- Pick your wrestler (each with different music and additional traits like extra bonus, 2x pin values etc).
- Correctly There's a ladder skill shot
- Try to pin and advance to the next match
- You need to set up not just winning the first belt (US Champion) but then properly progress to Tag Team and qualify for Royal Rumble.

There's referee and tag team multiple to help you, and the clever use of the wham bar. The left saucer shot by the left flipper is really satisfying and not easy.

I owned Ghostbusters LE, another Trudeau designed pin. This table is 5x the fun of GB.

Road Show is just plain fun. Tons of great shots including a great left ramp, through the jets, blast zone combo, which is my favorite combo in pinball.

It gets knocked for the music and linear-like gameplay, but man it's packed with stuff. You've got 2 freakin heads on the play field! Add a bunch of ramps, shaker and a second plunger and road show is packed without ever feeling cramped. They'll never be anything like this made again.

Awesome, bargain pin.

What an amazing table. Have a friend who does not like pinball? Have them try this one, it is almost like a video game there is so much going on. The downside is that there is not a great flow to the game, it is very start and stop. Funny too!

Its all about the long ramp shots with this one, still it is quite a fun game once you get the rhythm of the table down.

Unique table layout that makes skills shots up the crossing ramps a must. Love the fishing pole reel multiball as well.

Just an excellent game, I play it every time I see it. Everything screams Metallica and comes from their entire career from the crosses of Master of Puppets to the Fuel callouts, it is a fans dream come true.

For a 1 level game from '88, this is the best there is. It's fast, fun and does a great job with the theme. The perfect "5 minute game."

People have no idea who Gorby is anymore, but all other passengers are cool.

The Taxi driver on the back glass freaks me out.

Welp, this was pretty much a dream theme for me and a lot of other people. It sucked though. BIG time.

All pinball machines are repetitive, but you can feel like you're progressing though the game differently each time. For some reason, this isn't the case with TF. It essentially FEELS like you're ALWAYS playing the same the exact same way. Over and over.

Code/rules are way way too long. Not deep. Just long. See you in hell, Optimus.

Love the backglass art.

Playfield have lack of invention, idea, gimmick, or anything. Its really boring pin and its just another in row of modern Stern poor pinballs.

Art of all table is terrible. Playfield art isnt actually art, there are only stupid simple symbols. Backglass is the same simple and boring.....5min in Photoshop:)

Cant believe its rated so high on this site. Big disappointment for me. Shiny new LEDs dont mean its good pinball guys!!

After owning this game for a couple months and playing regularly, I found it to be a ton of fun. It's the most challenging I have ever played and as I get a little further each time I keep discovering new things. It has truly become an adventure to accomplish. I love everything about it.

Solid game, start to finish.

Excellent fun. I'm very hopeful for Jersey Jack that this game is their initial entry.

Love this game-- my personal favorite, but definitely being pressed by Pirates of the Caribbean.

I purchased this game specifically because of the slower pace, anticipating pointing beginners in the game's direction. While it does have a different feel as far as speed goes, it has turned in to a very entertaining, zero anxiety purchase. This game is played full spectrum in my home -- 8 years to 52 years. POTC has definitely been seeing as much playing time as Lord of the Rings.

This game grows on you. It has seen more and more playing time in my household.

Such an underrated game. I can play this game for hours. I think the movie is as underrated as this machine.

Now Indiana Jones is how you execute a wide body pin design. This, to me, is what The Hobbit should have taken a clue from. The play field is packed with variation and things to do.

What's great about Indy is you can easily start modes and they're completable. It's not easy by any means but you can see the whole game (unlike, say, Ghostbusters, where you're playing the same modes over and over).

The best wide body pin ever.

Well, I wasn't born in the 50s so I imagine that's why the theme doesn't quite tug at my heartstrings, but it's executed really well.

Gameplay is awfully repetitive and that, along with the poor lighting and crowded play field, keep this low on my like list. I think the theme, awesome artwork and nostalgia factor keep this game rated so high, but make no mistake: it's a 1-trick-pony. Complete 4 goals to get to a 2 ball multiball. Find the creature. Rescue the girl. The other stuff along the way isn't really interesting. "Shoot the left ramp!" How fun is that to hit 20 times in a row? Well, not very.

Ultimately Creature didn't have the staying power it should, just like a drive-in movie.

"So nice, they made it twice."

Spider-man is a fast, fun and furious game. It's flow at it's finest.

It does get a bit repetitive at times because you have to hit 4-5 shots just to light start mode (maybe the only flaw in the game), but it's so fast that you forget all the work you're actually doing.

Rules are spectacular, allowing you to plan a strategy to get to Super Hero. I haven't yet reached it, but along the way Battle Royale is a great "mini" wizard mode, too.
