    Bet it's heaps harder, most virtual a lot easier than the real thing.

    I played Attack from Mars at Pinfest and had a shocker on it But the virtual AFM is a longplay..

    I play it often and one of my fav games. In RL you can REALLY suck as it can be a drainer but then games you can go forever. Missed shots IMO are fatal and the ball drains in outlanes. I dont usually take artwork into consideration but I think the theme and artwork is 100%. The rules are simple but the challenge is to accomplish it. I was peeved at this as I could never get MOR twice! and I should have got 1+ billion. When playing comp - the whole strategy of game play changes.

    Youre right though Jed VP plays easier but I found on newer 90's + pinnies. EM's and solid states (most times) play harder I reckon

    I've seen a few people play AFM who make it long play... I was lucky enough to have a few games of it at Pinfest and the first game was a shocker but improved each game as I got the feel for the real thing but I would say that the shots are tighter.

    I agree that many tables play easier in Virtual, but I'm OK with that... I hate the games in virtual that play heaps harder than the real thing... that shits me. Funhouse (VPX) was one of those, I'm not sure if the later version(s) are any better but when it was released it looked fantastic but played so hard.

    True, a lot also depends on the author as well. With VP you don't have to put up with weak flippers, targets that wont go down, etc, so that makes them a little easier. Abra Ca Dabra I found heaps harder in real life, so too Joker Poker!

    Also with VP10, there is some wacky ball spin sometimes, that you don't see on real games!

    speaking of tiny flippers, I had never played a real capersville until pinfest, that gets my vote as world's hardest pinball machine !!!!
