I’ve wanted one of these bad boys since first seeing the original arcade machine back in the early 90s. Now I’ve got this beautiful machine in my home! The shiny bright cabinet artwork, the light-up marquee and the two included games are outstanding. Lucky folks who forked out the big bucks for this will find themselves enjoying the bowling game more than expected, especially with friends. Unfortunately this cabinet does have a few cons. Once again, Arcade1Up have designed these cabinets to have a plastic bezel that has no resistance to even the most minor touch. Try to wipe dust and marks off your screen and you’ll be doomed to a badly scratched screen forever. Additionally, some screws don’t screw in properly, though this is a minor annoyance. Sadly, even though the games both have a highscore list, your scores don’t actually get saved on there, which severely hinders the replay value of both games. The scoring system for the Simpsons Arcade game (while likely authentic to the original) needs some improvement to warrant having an online leaderboard. The score is essentially finite, so the players at the top of the online leaderboard are not necessarily the best at the game, but the best at knowing some cheeky scoring loopholes. Much thanks though to ArcadeGamer who got this thing to my doorstep the moment it was available and offered the best deal (free postage) available!
High Quilty item. Great games. Super fast shipping. Highly recommended for any Simpson fan.
