The fan was pretty cool...pretty funny to watch some kid's face when he was watching me play and got blasted by a shot of air upside the head. However, I'm not a fan of things that randomly change the trajectory of a ball that way. I prefer skill to luck in all things.
Since I've beaten every one of the these machines on actual tables
, I can easily say that Medieval Madness was, without a doubt, the biggest bitch to complete ALL tasks on. That last damn castle took far too many hits to destroy...and those f'ing Trolls were ball-killing a-holes at times. Sometimes, I still randomly hear "I am the Duke of Burbon!...I think..." in my head for no reason.
I probably spent a good hundred hours or more trying to complete "Battle for the Kingdom.
" (Each game taking upwards of a full hour to complete...the one where I actually did it, they timed me at 1 hour, 39 minutes. That's 50 cents worth, for sure!
I'll never be able to do it on HoF though. An emulator can never compare to the tactile repsonse of the cabinet and environment to the movements of my body...though I'd still find myself leaning back and forth and side-to-side while playing on Xbox.
