stern kiss gameplay
« on: April 16, 2017, 08:10:35 PM »
Had a chance to play a premium and gave it a good amount of game time. Conclusion, I would never own one, would walk passed one in the wild or at a meet, code is just plain shit.

Just flip for flip sake, no real strategy or just fun factor. Stern need to re code this boat anchor or convert these as wall hangings

Fair assessment. Stern really stuffed up BIGTIME on this title, and out of the 6 pinheads / KISS fans that I know bought the LE, I'm the only owner still hanging in there.

For the stern fans that defend Stern no matter what, one of my favorite designers is John Trudeau, one of my favorite movies is Ghostbusters, and Aerosmith would be a cool game to own (even though is RIPPED OFF Kiss on so many levels). Star Wars is a classic title and Iron Maiden is one of my all time favorite bands. I would not consider ANY of these titles due to the exceptionally PATHETIC support by Stern.

I have come to accept that my KISS LE is an ornament. Currently used to store paperwork on the playfield glass and old DVDs underneath it. Not played for MONTHS.

Devalued as it is a Stern.  !*!

Have to agree re Kiss and dunno about other titles, but I have had no reservations with gb. Cannot comment on Stern support, but AMD have been great to me. That's why a metallica is waiting for me. Hopefully I don't get bitten, but am confident met will be ok seeing coding is complete or close to. Now Kiss is just down right a mess. Why is that?? Everyone I know who have owned one have sold or in the case of the other day, the owner warned me I'd be disappointed.

Btw I nearly bought one over gb but luckily you and others talked me out of it. Thanks big time.

But it would be funny if 10 years down the track and some major code updates, this title became a classic  %.%

I got a kiss pro 5 weeks ago. I sold kiss pro 4weeks ago. Quickest pin in and out for me. In fairness it was replaced with a TZ but I didn't regret moving it at all.

One of the main issues I think is it is not obvious what you need to do! The game does not really tell you.

Still like the the flow on this game, think it is a great shooter.

Personally not a game for me but I found this video helped me understand it better. Give it a look!

Quickest new game I've ever owned and sold -  then the guy that bought it off me sold it in record time lol. Such a shame as it's the theme I always wanted. New code won't fix the layout anyway.

I like it since the new code. The song multipliers and the PF multiplier all the way up to 10X make this game interesting for me. We have one at work but I haven't had any time to really get into it.

Yeah real shame Rob for me as I always wanted Stern to do KISS and they screwed it up unfortunately. Luckily I bought a demo so didn't loose much

Layout is really good. It has some really good shots. Aerosmith is basically the exact same layout.

It just needs code - 18 months since delivery and it still is not finished. I've had ONE game since December. Would never buy or recommend a late model Stern based on this business model.

No real noticeable improvement. Still needs a proper update.

I had forgotten how much fun the game actually is, so I'm appreciating the game a little more as it is. I does need some polish and I'm sure it will stay in the collection once that eventuates.
