Arguably the best Data East game to ever be released.
Rating #226 of 10 23 days ago
As a Steve Ritchie fan I love fast pins and yep, No Fear is one of those.

Great artwork on playfield and translite, fast playing, great toy as the Skull, good instructions what to do in callouts (and man, Steve Ritchie can do nice call-outs !) and on DMD. Nice variety in rules and the end-game is obtainable even if you are not a pinball-god.

I love HS2 slightly better but NF is a great pin !! It has this special one more game pls factor :-)

This is just a great, great game. The drop target/VUK/cannon multiball is super fun, the ramp shots have a great flow, it's got one of the best video modes in all of pinball, and many ways to play to rack up points. Arnold's speech takes it over the top. Definitely a keeper.

I've always felt this game was underrated. It's quite popular with kids and has a nice flow. It's quite satisfying to fire balls up the various ramps, and the reverse handyman drop target shot is fun to hit. I'd love it if someone came out with a better rule set - there are features that are barely used that could be much cooler (scrolling LED readout, I'm looking at you).

Unquestionably the most popular game out of the (currently) 17 I own. This game has extremely broad appeal, a incredibly deep ruleset that takes time to appreciate, superb artwork and sound (which does sometimes get a little annoying, however), a gorgeous cabinet and the best stock playfield lighting I've ever seen. Some of the shots are incredibly hard, the upper playfield is fun and actually playable, and the way you can stack modes is quite fun.

I really love all things pirate, and as a result have played PoTC quite a lot. Sadly, the game is quite easy and I often find myself getting bored on the third ball - there's only so many times I can sink the dauntless and feel excited about it. I may eventually get around to owning one because I think it has a wide audience appeal, but this one is definitely not a must have for me.

Solid game with great flow, maybe a tad too easy, but still very fun to play.
Rating #226 of 17 24 days ago
I've tried several times to like this game. I want to like this game. I love the books and the series. Unfortunately the way they did the art feels childish, like someone got hold of a bunch of clip art and spammed it everywhere. The rules aren't well explained. The DMD is shamefully bad. The upper playfield is interesting, the shots are okay and the flow is fine, but I find the whole to be uninspired. I expected something more like The Hobbit or LoTR but this just doesn't come close.

An interesting toy or two but the centrifuge just dominates the game. Flow feels interrupted and too much is happening on the far sides of the game. Upper flipper is of limited involvement. Side shots are very difficult. The game is just very hard. A good looking game that is fun at the outset but usually ready to move on after playing a few games. Look and artwork are good despite a so-so-theme.

Could be better - music is ok but gets repetitive. Lighting is just OK - they could have done more interesting things with the theme.

Good - overall game play. Lots of variation in shots. Rule set is wide, deep and stackable.

Great - theme and TOYS!
Rating #226 of 7 25 days ago
Overall a fun game, but fairly simple. Perfect for casual play. Limited rule set. Interesting toys. Great lighting and theme.
Rating #226 of 7 25 days ago
Good: Theme, color scheme and lighting. Upper flipper involvement. Enterprise toy. Clear rule set.

Bad: Primarily ramp game which gets repetitive and can feel like banging posts a lot. Not much for toys besides the Enterprise. Rule set is repetitive. Unremarkable music.
Rating #226 of 7 25 days ago
Good/great - absolutely stunning visuals, lighting and sound. Intricate and deep rule set. Innovative playfield. Wide body design.

Could be better - beasts can be intrusive. Can feel excessively multi-ball driven at times. Can be challenging to know what the objectives are during MB modes.

The Bad - the leapers sounds get tiring. The Good - just about everything else. The callouts are classic and just about the best of any game out there. Stop the spider is genius. Multiball modes are challenging.
Rating #226 of 7 25 days ago
Fast play. Superb call outs. FOUR cool toys. Mix of easy/challenging multi-ball modes. Truly one of the great games to play over and over.

I found the game to be entertaining and look forward to seeing where it goes with updated code
Rating #226 of 11 21 days ago
The theme does nothing for me. Beyond that, it plays great, has a lot of flow, but I got bored with some really long ball times. Overall, its just not a game I want to keep flipping on.
