A ton of fun!

I was lucky enough to get some time with the Transformers pinball machine today at a pinball tournament.

The game layout is final but the software still needs some tweaking, at least that is what I was told.  This is a test machine that is available for people in the know to play.  When you start the game, you are asked if you want to be a Decepticon or Autobot.  The game then plays out a little differently depending on your choice.  The scoring and video presentations are affected by this as well.

The game plays very smoothly and has a variety of sub-games within.

I cannot claim to be a pinball expert (my high score was something around 6,000,000 and a free game is won at 29,000,000), but I had awful lot of fun playing this game.  It’s hard to watch the ball when there are so many fun animations on the screen!  There is a ramp which directs the ball into the Optimus Prime figure and creates an impact.  The sounds are great and are from the movie.  A version of the Transformers original theme can also be heard during game play.
