Positives:
Really great sound, but the quotes are a little muffled. Except for the EB rape, you have a reason to shoot most of the other shots which makes this one a pretty fun game.

Minuses:
You can steal extra ball after extra ball off the easy right ramp.

9ball


Pluses:
Way cool pin with a ton of great features. Ramps are waaay smooth especially the monster slide. Sounds and speech are top knotch with some great quotes. One of the best multiball starts of any pin. Well balanced scoring once 4 million jackpot is quiffed off. Party Punch ramp get's progressively harder to light extra ball keeping it a challenge to collect. Monster slide ramp is a challenging and a progressively lucrative shot when made repeatedly.

Minuses:
n/a

Drac


Pluses:
Humorous artwork and sound bytes and smooth E-L-V-I-R-A ramp

Minuses:
Slotted flippers are the factory standard, but are actually less fun than when the game is installed with regular flippers instead

Buzz


Pluses:
Dennis Nordman starts his string of underated games IMO. Nice design for an 80's game with enough rule depth and challenge to keep you coming back. Cool light and sound shows top off this solid effort.

Minuses:
EB a little to easy to achieve. Multiball launch often misfires SDTM. BBQ standups can be deathshots.

Jimbo


Pluses:
Great ramps.....fun during multiball. Cool sounds and speech....(more on the adult side) Great artwork everywhere....especially the cab. Cool Bumpers....and toys(boogie men, skull w/ lit eyes. etc)

Overall:
Very strong game......one of my favorites overall. Always lots of fun to play. Challenging too

Minuses:
Most didn't have mylar, so now most are belt sanded!
