In January, I went to visit my family in Seattle for a few days. While in town, I swung by one of the great American pinhalls, Shorty's, with my dad. To my delight, I found that they had a brand new Transformers set up in the back room.
I must say, the game was a lot of fun. I love the idea of splitting the playfield into two sections, and the ability to choose which way you want to play the game. The first time I played, I set up a two player game and made player one an autobot and player two a decepticon, so I could compare and contrast. The shots were super satisfying, the multiball was crazy and intense (BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM out of Megatron!) and I loved the series of lights in the top lanes, outlanes and other various places on the playfield. It was pretty mind-bending, when I figured out that there were TWO series, one for each side. It was a cool twist on a simple idea.
Anyway, my father and I only had an hour to kill before we had to move on to our next appointment, so I didn't get too deep into the game. But my first impression of Transformers was very good (it helped that I got a replay on that first autobot game :) I can't wait to play it again the next time I see one!
