I was looking forward to the release of this game but was sadly disappointed in this title. There is no excitement in play, it was slow and the response was lacking. This did not have the feel of playing an actual pinball machine as it did with the William's collection. Although I had anticipated that this was a game I would keep, this was absolutely not the case.
The ball in most of the games that I played moved at the same speed and anyone who has played a pinball game knows this just does not happen. Jiggling the machine was nearly non-existant unlike the Williams version. This lacked any luster whatsoever. I found myself very bored within minutes.
I don't even have the desire to see if any of the other non-free games are worthwhile.
The Gottlieb pinball lacked any character at all. Don't even bother. It isn't even worth the rental I am sorry to say. Just plain horrible.
Although I have been a member of Gamefly for nearly two years, the was the first time that I felt so strongly in regard to a game that I had to write a review hence the reason it shows me as a member since February 2010. This only relates to reviewing games.

Looking forward to this release

The Williams collection made us so happy we purchased it after renting it from Gamefly. This Gottlieb pales in comparison. We didn't even keep it longer than one night of play. We tried each game. Boring!! We earned enough credits to play the games that charged us 10 credits to play.... not worth it!
We actually could not wait for its release, and sadly, could not wait to return it. Too bad, as Williams Collection is one of our all-time favorites! We adore smacking that silver ball at Rudy's head.
