Arcade1Up - Golden Axe Arcade
Overall, I've been debating getting an actual arcade game cabinet for quite a while, and after two weeks of researching and debating, I picked this one up. Not only does the marquee light up, the cabinet is smooth and shiny, beautiful colors and high quality decals. The presentation is great as well, screen is nice, and the 4 player joystick layout is very functional. I had my doubts about going for a machine, but this one is a great addition to my room.Oct 08, 2021 02:14
Got 4 players on this one it was cramped but was tons of fun. good looking cab easy to put together 5 games in this one. only 4p game on this cab is DA just a FYI all others are 2p.Nov 07, 2021 03:22
Another great cabinet from Arcade1up. So glad I bought this!Oct 18, 2021 03:50
Explore uncharted virtual territories and slay dragons with this sleek Sony PlayStation 5 gaming console. The 825GB SSD allows ultra-fast load times, while 3-D audio output produces crisp acoustics. This Sony PlayStation 5 gaming console supports haptic feedback for effortless communication in multiplayer setups, and adaptive triggers allow immersive gameplay.
Going over hardware and software. Not going over the every exact technical specs as you can easily look that up. Software can change overtime, this is review of software at launch. If any hardware hiccups or failures in near future I'll update this review
Looks futuristic yet tacky. In my personal opinion, looks doesn't really matter as long it can play next gen games well
Large console. Standing up it's the tallest home video console.
A lot of air-vents throughout making it aerodynamic, cool, quiet, and does not overheat or get hot with consecutive gameplay hours. This may change in the future if games require more performance out of the system, with similar fate like the PS4 where it was whisper quiet in beginning and became louder over the years with more graphical intensive games.
Has LED lights giving it a PC look (?)
Face plate easy to take out for future customization options (?).
667of 820gb of free download space in console
Swapping SDD is not as easy as Xbox Series X (with it's plug and play method) as you have to remove some screws. Upside is that it's standard and not a propriety SDD.
PS5 is compatible with most PS4 games. If you have an external SDD from PS4 it's just plug and transfer to PS5 internal storage
Comes with stand. Console is not entirely flat, so stand is required for horizontal position. You have console in vertical position without stand, but does not have grip (rubber feet) so may slide if bumped into or during an earthquake
Front of console: USB-C, USB-A, power, and eject button
Back of console: Two USB-A (Super Speed), LAN port, HDMI, and power port
Wished it had more USB-C ports to be future proof, but guess they kept USB-A for some current accessories to be backwards compatible. Disappointed the PS5 official 3D pulse headset and camera uses USB-A. Also no optical audio port means i can't use some of my surround sound headsets.
Load times for PS5 games are instantaneous. Ps4 games will load much faster, even without optimized patch.
Ps5 have ray tracing giving games realistic lighting effects
Console comes with one controller
Physically larger than past DuelShock controllers. Great for those with adult sized hands
Great tech demo included with 'Astro's Playroom'.
Haptic feedback. Similar to Nintendo Switch HD rumble, but more apparent. Not sure if developers will implement in future their games. Even with Nintendo first party; only '1-2 Switch' and 'Mario Party' from what I recall used HD rumble at great extent and it dropped off after that.
Adaptive triggers. Will feel resistance/push back on triggers if developers implement it in game.
Hope both Haptic feedback and Adaptive triggers say the entire lifespan and transfer to PS6 instead of dropping off like the six axis on PS3 and light bar in PS4
Has built in mic. Sound quality is similar to current smart phone on speaker. Has mute button
Similar to PS4, it has speaker and touch pad. Touch pad is more sensitive this time around
About double battery life of Ps4 controller. Able to get in 10 consecutive hours
Wished it came with back paddle buttons. Hopefully they release a DualSense Back Button Attachment like they did the DualShock 4
You can play PS4 games with DualShock 4 or DualSense . PS5 games only can be played with DualSense
UI, OS is the similar to PS4 with scrolling apps/games (left, right, up, down)
There's an activity row where you can track your progress on games
Other rows are News and PSN store
There are notifications popups, but you can turn on 'Do Not Disturb' mode
Similar to phone's swipe down tool bar for basic profile (trophy list, avatar, user info,etc), accessibility options, sound, Game Base, internet wifi select, controllers (see connected controllers), etc on home screen for easy access.
'Game Base' section is where you make party with friends and chat with them, view friend requests.
Share button this time around will pull up menu to take snap shot, record video, or save video previously played game session for up to 60mins
There's an 'Your Accolades' feature where you give props to other players. Reminds me of how to give endorsements (Sportsmanship, Good Teammate, Shot Caller) in Overwatch to encourage positivity in online community. For PS5 has Helpful, Welcoming, and Good Sport
There are accessibility options/preferences you can setup that transfers to your games
There's a 'Switcher' option where you can change games on the fly, but unlike the Xbox Series X's 'quick resume' does not leave where you left off, and will boot you back to the home screen of that game
Picture-in-picture mode if you want friends to help show you how to get through levels
PS4 games load faster on PS5 if downloaded to SSD. Graphical upgrade depends on publisher if they implement a 'PS5 upgrade" patch
-For PS5 trophies.
Trophies that have collectables there is a progress bar showing how much left to collect.
There are also tutorial videos for some games that implement it.
Some trophies once selected will drop you into the level/section where you can obtain the trophy. Again depends on game developer if they implement it.
PS4 trophies on PS5 act the same
Base price for games are $70 ($10 more than last gen); Excluding Special/Collector's editions, DLC, micro-transactions, loot crates, and surprise mechanics
Overall, aside from some odd design choices very capable next gen system. There are some features especially on the controller that developers have to utilize and may not be present in all games. If anything like the PS3 and PS4, going to have thousands of gameplay hours on this systemApr 30, 2021 16:07
It was quite difficult to pre-order the PS5, but I truly lucked out because even with all the restocks certain retailers have had... it is still unbelievably hard to place the order. I hope anyone that still wants one gets one soon because it really is unfair that the gamers aren't able to land one whilst scalpers have thousands.
The PS5 has run beautifully and so intelligently from what I've experienced. The set up was of course easy and fast. The new UI is smooth and I definitely like it more than the old one on the PS4.
The Dualsense Controller is AMAZING. It is probably the next best thing (only second to the console itself) with the way it works. It's not as slippery like the Dualshock and feels great in hand. Even after hours of gaming, I did not feel any fatigue in my hands. The battery life is probably similar to its predecessor.
Overall, the console runs very smoothly and I have not experienced any sort of loudness with it. I do recommend when playing games, to choose performance over the resolution. You will absolutely get a higher FPS and I think it just runs a lot better that way.
Would highly recommend this to anyone that wants to experience next gen even though we've just merely begun to play those games.Nov 25, 2020 23:18
An actual buyer here!!! The console has been great. No issues so far (Crosses fingers). No glitches (like many who don’t work in the tech field claim). I’ve tried plenty of PS4 games and they all work normal. I have Spiderman, 2K, COD and Valhalla and they are all good games. The adaptive triggers on the controller definitely stand out as a highlight. I turn them off for multiplayer in COD because they can be a distraction.
I’m sure the Xbox has some benefits, but I’m sticking with Sony. Hope everyone is able to get the console they want.Dec 12, 2020 17:19
listen, i know how difficult it is to get the PS5. but you gotta keep trying. the ability to have 2-3 second load times is an ability i never knew i wanted. the games are so much fun, i am deeply addicted to my PS5. i am currently attempting to get the platinum trophy on Demon Souls Remastered. Keep trying ladies and gentlemen, i hope you are able to get a PS5 at some point! i also bought black PS5 plates off dbrand and they make the PS5 look even better!Oct 27, 2021 09:59
Oh my goodness!!! This thing is amazing! Best controller and console by far!!! I can’t believe I actually got it!!!! I was so excited when I purchased it but now that I have it I know that it was worth the excitement!!

The PS5 feels like an actual step forward into the next generation of gaming from the speed to access games and within games to the new UI to the new controller. The PS5 feels like something new. Which I assume is what your looking for when you buy a new generation of console. one feature of note in the new UI is the cards that give you a custom estimation of how long you would need to play a particular mission or section in a PS5 game or how much progress you’ve made towards a new trophy and simple as this is it really helps so you can better plan your “gaming session”. If you’re lucky enough to finally get your hands on one of these you won’t be disappointed. Pro tip if you have games on your PS4 I would recommend you move them to an external HD so you can easily access them on your PS5.Oct 25, 2021 11:20
I have owned many game consoles over the years, including all of the PlayStations, lots of Nintendo, some of the Xboxs and a lot of old generation systems as well. I have had this system since launch day and it has been a blast so far, even the free game Astro's Playroom that is installed on the system was really fun to play. The system is virtually silent when running (finally!) has a pretty decent line up games for having just come out. The controller is beyond amazing, the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers definitely make the games feel more alive than in past generations. I hope all consoles going forward have these features! Can't wait for more PS5 only games to come out for it!Sep 03, 2021 13:42
What can I say…this is the MOST in-demand next-gen gaming console. It’s so hard to get your hands on it that people are paying a premium above MSRP to resellers. The picture quality is amazing on a 4K TV (recommend high refresh rate 120 MHz 4K TV if you can afford it). It functions as a media center and allows you to watch amazon prime videos for example in addition to gaming. It’s the console that once you play on it, you won’t want to go back to the earlier gen PS consoles. Get it while you can!! (oftentimes you only seconds to buy before going out of stock)Sep 22, 2021 20:33
Battle villains, explore new worlds or dominate the field with this PlayStation 5 Digital Edition. Support for DualSense wireless controllers, Tempest 3D AudioTech and an HD camera let you enjoy an immersive gaming experience. This PlayStation 5 Digital edition features a 825GB SSD for fast loading speeds and delivers up to 120 fps, so you can keep up with the action.
Honestly, what do you expect? It's next-gen. The console itself to begin with looks like some type of alien object that's casually placed in your living room. The controller is fantastic, much bigger so it can grip in my hands properly now. I always liked the PS4 controller but now holding this I can see how much less of a controller it is compared to the PS5's. Lastly, you honestly won't get the full next-gen experience until HDMI 2.1 4k monitors come out that runs over 120hz. So if money is a little tight I would wait till it dies down. Not worth paying over retail for this console. So if you were thinking of buying it from those scalpers don't.Dec 18, 2020 19:18
Order came in earlier than expected! The entire process was so smooth. The guys at the front desk were kind and quick with helping me with my order, I was out of the store in no time. As for the Ps5, this thing is rockin. I haven't put it down since I got it. The controller is on another level and don't get me started with the graphics. I recommend purchasing a monitor compatible to get full 120 FPS on games that are capable because the graphics are next level. I went with the digital version, and that being said it comes with more than enough storage for all your games. I highly recommend playstation, as this console covers all the bases for my gaming needs.Aug 30, 2021 03:12

Going back to Playstation after 'main-ing' the Xbox one/ one one x for years is a def welcoming experience. PS plus games has amazing selection to choose from and you can keep them all in your library. The community is fantastic and I keep adding friends to the list. I have so much to catch up on when it comes to PS4 titles. As far as ps5 titles they're a little scarce but what's out def takes advantage of what Sony is pushing for in the next gen. Astro's PLAYROOM, COD Black Ops: Cold War and Descruction Allstars all utilize the 'Adaptive Triggers' on the controller and its such a game changer. Being able to feel the game react to your gamplay is phenomenal. Follow @mattswider on Twitter for live PS5/XBOX Series X restock times on different websites. I was lucky enough to get my PS5 through his link on Best Buy . com website. Remember just be signed in w/ card info saved and never give up!Apr 09, 2021 09:55
People usually buy the other version, but let me tell you that this totally worth. Anyway, you always will need to buy an external drive (I prefer SSD) for your digital games. What about disk games? You can still play them in your old ps4, is not a big difference (load speed is the only difference that I notice) if is a normal game that doesn’t support a ps5 upgrade. Otherwise, I recommend virtual games because they can’t break and you always will have them in your library, so if you travel a lot like me, and you want to bring your ps5 with you, you don’t need to care for make some space in your baggage for a bundle of discs.Jun 05, 2021 11:45
Best Buy is the way to go to avoid scalpers. Just be patient and wait for it to be added to the cart. The button will turn yellow. I promise. Once it’s in the cart it’s yours. I love my new system, the data saved on my Seagate drive, with all my PS4 data crossed over in seconds, only the new PS5 games bought with cross gen had to download. PlayStation 5 is awesome, can’t wait for grand Tourismo to drop.
The pics I used are from my Xbox X order, process was the same.
Good luck y’allMar 20, 2021 13:26
Had a few issues at launch which have been fixed with updates over time and now it works great. Will have to trade in though, if there's ever a PS5 Pro announcement.Oct 28, 2021 08:30
I have been trying to get my hands on one of these since they came out last year and Best Buy made it very easy!Oct 01, 2021 01:30
Tag team fight to your nostalgic heart's content with Marvel vs Capcom arcade cabinet from Arcade1Up. Marvel vs Capcom arcade cabinet boasts original artwork on the machine and a custom riser and features, with a 17" full-color LCD display and real-feel joysticks and control buttons. The machine is easy to assemble, includes a light-up deck protector and variable volume switch. This Wi-Fi enabled arcade machine allows you to play online multiplayer with your friends in an arcade format. Shoryukens, optic blasts, yoga flames, adamantium claws, and oh, so much more.
This is my favorite Arcade1Up machine. It includes four of the best 2D fighters of all time. Marvel vs Capcom, X-Men vs Street Fighter, Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter, and Marvel Super Heroes. Such amazing classics housed within the best looking Arcade1Up artwork to date. Not to mention, the games are online enabled so, if you're like me, you can get absolutely smoked by the competition. There's also a Super Nintendo game included which I really haven't played. My only complaint is that the buttons/joysticks could be of a higher quality. I've had this less than a year and you can definitely tell which set of controls I've been using. Player 2 is nice and stiff while the controls I used (Player 1) are showing their age. Joystick 1 leans a little bit to the left and the buttons are squeaky. I may look into modding the cabinet with Sanwa parts eventually.Sep 11, 2021 10:21
I’ve had 6 previous arcade cabinets: FinalFight, MortalKombat, Rampage, NinjaTurtles, MarvelSuperheroes, and Pac-Man, but this one is by far my favorite of all! It’s more cool the side or all around is different design, when previous cabinets repeated the design, this also has a light up marquee and deck light up, when the old ones did not, grant it i could upgrade, but instead I sold 2. All the previous cabinets came with 3 games, but this one has 5! And 4 games are online! What I consider a compliments is the awesome stool and custom riser! THANK YOU! Also if anyone wants to know my gamertag to play online? It is: turnstileDec 19, 2020 22:05

Manual was very easy to follow, ended up looking great with the riser. Sticks and buttons feel really good, but I wish they included an octagonal gate to switch out for the joysticks. One of the screws got stripped furing assembly fue to a faulty screwhead, however and there were not any spares. Had to supply my own extra screw.Oct 29, 2021 19:16
Been waiting to grab one of the Arcade1ups and they finally made one for Marvel vs Capcom. My favorite throughout all the Capcom versus series. Everything came in one piece despite a few scratches from shipping. The chair is comfortable and the buttons and joy stick feel great. I was able to swap out the buttons for the sawna type. But overall, it's worth it. I just wish it wasn't so pricey.Aug 01, 2021 22:28
This is my first Arcade1Up purchase and while I have played on other cabinets this one by far is the best cabinet released so far to date! I have barely touched my PS5 since I got this cab! Everything was packaged neat. No damages found on each piece. Roughly took me a good hour and a half by myself to make but it was such a breeze. The price is steep but if your a true fan it’s worth every penny! The online is smooth and I haven’t had any network issues so far. If this cab is available BUY ASAP! This cab was delayed for me a total of 3 times! Once it’s gone it might not come back!Dec 22, 2020 23:31
Just got this together last night. Took me about 1 hour by myself. I used one tool - electric screwdriver. The light up marquee is a nice touch along with stool. I wish I was adjustable like my others, but it’s fine. The graphics on the cab look amazing around it. The base is a lot more sturdy than I thought it would be. The games take me back and held up good with the sounds and voices. Great little collection of games on this one.Dec 19, 2020 07:37
I got this arcade a few days ago took about an hour to setup and I must say this my best machine ever made by Arcade 1Up very impressed myself just wish they make the screen from 17" to a 19" this would even better sound is great and loving the art work they put on the side panels excellent job this my 5th arcade getting a couple more hoping Killer Instinct coming out around the end of the year that's going to be the best seller machine ever of 2021Jun 27, 2021 05:09

A great console that unfortunately signals the death of an era. The console works as advertised, 60 frames or more at 1440p for any games that have been updated with such support. This console is in very few ways inferior to the Series X. It has no disc drive and less internal SSD space, but in the era of digital games external drives are so easy to come by and cheap too. Considering most TVs can't even support the power of the Series X, the Series S is the console to buy unless you already own a huge TV, or one that is over 4K. With the X you will be able to generate 4K content, or 60+ frames with a lower resolution. The S is optimal for most people I would argue, because likely if you own a 4K TV you probably don't have one that is high end with a fast refresh rate. But if your TV is huge you will see a definite lost of clarity in the picture. Overall this console is a lot easier to get a hold of and it's a true next gen experience little different from the Series X. With each update to the OS the previous Xbox One editions get slower and become forcibly more obsolete. Quick resume and the more enhanced always-on are amazing features that bring you to gaming faster than ever. And the sheer amount of frames in comp multiplayer games like Rocket League and R6S are a huge advantage. The Series S is a good place to start if you don't know whether or not you want to upgrade your home entertainment suite and whether or not a better console will actually have effect at all on your current home entertainment suite. And it is also the right console to buy if you're on a budget. Right noe there aren't too many games and next gen experiences but considering that these consoles are being given priority to their previous gen brethren, which are being slowly left behind as we speak, if you game at all then an upgrade is what you need.Apr 23, 2021 18:25
After playing on my Xbox Series S for a month now I can say I am happy with this little beast console ! This console can play new Xbox One and old Xbox 360 games if it's backwards compatible. The fast load times are amazing on current Xbox games and the increase frame rates are also very much welcomed. I redownloaded alot of past games just to try out how it stacks against my old Xbox One X there just no comparison to how stable it is plus most games are getting a X/S upgrade to take advantage of the new hardware. Then comes the downside to the Series S the internal hard drive only 346 GB is just way too small to build a library of games. You will constantly be deleting/reinstalling and good luck with updates. Sure you can fix this with buying a external hard drive but gotta sacrifice that fast load time or even the pricy $219 SSD just to maintain that fast load time for only 1 TB. If you can get past the small storage space then I would highly recommend you pick up a Xbox Series S to play your current games/older games at higher speeds or framerate but if your wanting bigger space and more graphical enhances of the new games coming down the line then get a Xbox Series X.Feb 06, 2021 03:11
I’ll start by saying that up until purchasing this console, I’ve owned everything but an Xbox. There’s been N64, GameBoy Advance, GameCube, PS2, Wii, PS2, PS3, and PS4. Never an Xbox. For the longest time having grown up on the influence of console wars, I’ve always ignorantly thought PS was the better console and Xbox has nothing to offer. I’ve played the 360 a few times and had no experience with the XB1. Coming from the PS4 it’s the smoothest and most satisfying console I’ve played. Transitions between games are seamless including the Quick Resume feature which essentially allows you to have multiple games open just by switching between them. The selection is always mocked because of PS’ well known exclusives, although Xbox has great ones of their own. Some including Gears of War, Halo, Forza, Sea of Thieves, and now their exclusivity deal with Bethesda to launch their future titles on Microsoft platforms. Aside from the games, as I previously stated the transitions are seamless thanks to the SSD (be prepared to buy storage expansion). The UI is extremely convenient once you get used to it, Game Pass is great value for what you’re paying, the performance can hang with the Series X (especially if you don’t have an HDR/4K capable TV), the recording/streaming quality is an upgrade along with the speed that it saves your clips at being very quick (again coming from a PS4). All in all, I’ve only owned this console for one day and I can see myself using it for a thousand more. Highly recommend if you’re looking to try out an Xbox or if you’re looking to upgrade from a One/One S, it could also just serve as portable gaming for anyone who travels frequently.Sep 02, 2021 11:44
Just picked it up today. Iam writing this review to help out people. Don’t be to worried about the storage. If you had an External hard drive. From your old console. It will work on this system. Your old games that are not x/s up grades will still play from the hard drive you have. Games that are up graded put on the internal hard drive. The console is very small but powerful. Super quiet. Iam coming for the Xbox one s. This new system downloads games super fast and loads way faster then the other. For people that play destiny load took forever. Not with this system. Iam playing on 1080p monitor. And games look so much better. Hope this helps people. Glad I upgraded to this system.Dec 31, 2020 19:44
I really wanted to get the X series i tried so hard and this one was available so i grabbed it with no expectations. This little thing is powerful looks sweet and plays amazing. I have a 1440 monitor so this ended up being a great purchase. Only bad thing is how hard these new systems are to get and only being digital you can't buy games at the store anymore. Gamepass is amazing also and perfect for this machineDec 04, 2020 11:27
Even though, there's hype around the Series X and PS5 about the powerful internals. I enjoy having the Series S... I'm impressed of how small it is. And its more than capable of playing next generation games. As of now, I've been playing 2K21 Next Generation.
If those who don't care about 4K gaming and don't have a ton of games they play on a regular, then I most certainly recommend the Series S.Dec 29, 2020 11:19
Honestly was just on Best Buy a few days ago and I seen they had a Xbox Series S so I thought I will see if I can’t place a order and what did you know it went through was actually happy Yes I know this system doesn’t let you have 4K 120 FPS but I don’t care I’m just glad I can play next generation games I’m very impressed at how the Xbox Series S can play games at 120 FPS and 60 FPS really can see a difference yes your not getting a lot of storage only like 364GB not the greatest but at least it’s something if your the type who doesn’t care about having a system that can do 4K 120 FPS then this system is perfect for you now note if you want to play Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition with Ray Tracing on then I have bad news the Series S can’t do it it’s only on the Series X but theirs other games that has Ray Tracing on the Series S but if you don’t care like me on some games then I say get this systemOct 29, 2021 02:27
So i was lucky and randomly i was on best buys website and i was able to check out with one inn very early January. now i wanted the X & still want the X but im very surprised what this machine can do for the time being! i also bought the 49'' Lg Nano cell tv & can run call of duty and other games at 1440p @120hz. i am thrilled & so happy. This is performing just as good, if not better then my Alienware desktop with a rtx 2070!! Wish it had a bigger SSD tho!!Feb 11, 2021 15:12
Conquer virtual enemies with this Sony PlayStation 4. It's compatible with the latest game titles to provide hours of entertainment, and it lets you access PlayStation Vue so you can enjoy your favorite shows. This Sony PlayStation 4 has a 1TB hard drive, so you can store plenty of gaming files.
Nice and slim. Also got a skin cover to give the ps4 more style. I love that you can have items shipped to alternate locations that will work for a persons hectic schedule.Nov 21, 2020 23:11
I love my new Playstation 4! I could pick it up a day before! I just recently wanted it and looked for it and found it at Best Buy! I'm going to buy more things in the future!Feb 27, 2021 20:29
Love my game system! I ordered one from the Sony website before, but it was stolen at a local FedEx facility and could not find another one for months. I’m so glad I checked at Best Buy!Oct 22, 2021 01:02
I love my Playstation 4, i purchased it in Best Buy, it was delivered to my house fast, it was real easy to purchase it online.Feb 26, 2021 16:14
I have 2 other ps3s. I use them for TV streaming & watching movie discs-since the actual Blu-ray players made these days are flimsy pieces of crap.
Can’t go wrong with Sony… Excellent device!Jun 18, 2021 18:28
I had bought this console to play games until the PS5 comes out I sold my PS4 Pro because it would always disconnect off the WI-FI but this console here works great it doesn’t disconnect me off the WI-FI I use this system on a computer monitor 4K UHD the graphics look very nice I’m happy I got this PS4 console. I also love that it’s slim and doesn’t take much space light weight.

I bought this game to reduce my stress at work. I bring it to work with me and play on my break and at lunch time. I also like the fact that it has 3 games on it so I dont have to play the same one all the time. I'm glad I got the hand held model instead of the one with the joystick.Dec 09, 2019 11:37
Whether it’s a long ride, waiting room visit or family function you wish got cancelled, this will help get through the pain and frustration of being bored.Oct 25, 2019 16:15
I used to play this game in high school over 30 years ago! I'm glad I found this pocket size player game. I love it!May 25, 2020 09:40
Made me reminisce from my younger days when this game first came out. Now, it is back!Dec 07, 2019 20:44
I wouldn’t advise to buy unless you are a gamer. Not for younger kidsJan 10, 2020 19:31

One pinball machine, ten games, endlessfun.
I bought AFM primarily to play Medieval Madness, so the other reports of Whitewater being unplayable didn't bother me. With that said, Medieval Madness, Attack from Mars, and Arabian Nights play well. The other tables have a slightly delayed nudge, and Whitewater has numerous frame skips. If you are heavily invested in Whitewater and the other tables besides MM, AFM, and AN, you may want to hold off until Arcade1Up releases a patch to fix the issues I mentioned (hopefully). I am still having a good time with this one, and the smaller form factor is perfect for my limited floor space.May 20, 2021 10:17
It's inferior to the Star Wars and Marvel tables by far (I have all three)! Software problems on AFM that A1U still has not, or will not address. If you're only going to get one or two of these because of floorspace issues go with the others. Star Wars is the best of the three but Marvel is good too.May 21, 2021 16:41
Great vr pin, all games super fun to play with the exception of white water. Would be great if Arcade1up had a fix for this one. Also a head to head player like NBA jams ,or a add on so you could play h to h with others. I have all 3 vr pins ,and enjoy each of them..now just waiting for dragons lair.Jul 18, 2021 10:52
This Pinball machine has to many flaws to be priced at $850. Know issue with Whitwater table being unplayable and flipper lag on some tables is well recorded with Arcade1up and they have yet to fix this unit. After playing this table the last few days I would say a good purchase price would be $450 to $500. Buyer beware and proceed with caution at any price above $500.Jul 17, 2021 19:34
First let me say that I picked up the Star Wars a few months back and it was so much fun I had to purchase AFM when it became available on bestbuy.com.
The build quality and ease of assembly mirrored the Star Wars machine. Arguably these pinball machines are the best constructed units Arcade 1up has offered to date.
With my Star Wars machine I did purchase a piece of tempered glass from my local glass shop and since my tempered glass piece for AFM is not here yet I was able to see a side by side comparison and can unequivocally recommend changing out the stock plexi. The difference is like night and day.
The interface is really easy to use and I love the variety of old time actual pinball tables with the AFM machine. Now to the not so good...
1) As has been documented in several reviews, White Water is completely unplayable. How A1up allowed this machine to ship with such a glaring issue is beyond me.
2) Several other tables take some getting used to because they're so fast. I would have appreciated a setting in the menu to slow these down some.
3) Leaderboards. I liked the simplicity of a TOP 10 like in the Star Wars machine. The leaderboard here is not as good and the pre set high scores are unrealistically high.
4) I think the haptic feedback here is much more muted than in the Star Wars table. I have found a video online with a fix for this problem, so that will be my weekend project.
5) I have found some issues with certain tables having overly sensitive tilt settings. Like the speed issues I mentioned I wish A1up would have built in a tilt sensitivity setting.
Four of of these five issues above can be corrected with a software patch. Hopefully Arcade 1up will provide something for us.
As a whole I'm still happy with my purchase for the most part and it's a great visual addition to my game room (I just need to add some art work). But I'm kind of surprised that some of these issues were not caught before this was released. I'd still give it a conditional recommendation.May 14, 2021 01:04
I ordered this on-line from BB and drove 3-hrs to pick it up, (BB won't ship this to your house) but the trip was well worth it. This is my 12th Arcade1up unit and only Big Buck Hunt beats it out as my favorite. The build quality and finishing touches of this machine is top notch for its price range. I only had this unit for less than a week but Medieval Madness has become my favorite out of the 10 game package, followed by Attack from Mars and Arabian Nights. The remaining 7 others are a mixed bag for me. For the most part, they suffer from the ball going straight between the flippers waaay too often. There seems to either be a layout issue or physics problem. But just having my top three make this purhase a great buy. Probably with more time on this machine I'll become better on the other seven, well maybe six. White Water has layout issues that causes the ball to zip past the flippers too often. Each game has very detailed instructions that will help guide you on how to play if you choose to read them.
The soundtracks for these games are hilarious and the game play is very realistic.
Dual Speaker Design that sounds fantastic.
The unit looks awesome and is built to last.
10 Pinball Games in one with detailed playing guide.
Easy scrolling game selection feature.
Fun factor gets high marks and makes you come back for more.
At least one game (White Water) has playing issues.
The 24 inch screen is 720p and not 1080p.
The tilt feature seems nonexistent on my machine.May 19, 2021 14:31
I love this thing. For the last twenty or so years I've gone out of my way to find official AFM machines in arcades and bars as often as possible and when the Pinball Arcade game came out for PC with this game on it I bought it immediately. So basically I'm obsessed with Attack From Mars.
The minute I learned this machine from 1up Arcade existed about a month ago I knew I had to get it and I'm really glad I did. It's exactly what I expected given that I already own the Pinball Arcade game on my PC (which this digital version is based on) but playing it on this machine makes the experience a hundred times better. The realistic feedback from the flippers and the bumpers is on point, as is the sound and the digital screen on the back panel. The artwork on the machine is also top notch and the construction of the entire unit is fantastic. It looks awesome in my living room.
I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5 though because the accelerometer- which is used to detect nudges and tilt, is extremely finicky. I know it's not just my machine too as a Google search on the issue will give you plenty of results with other people having the same issue. This could be greatly improved and it seems completely up to chance whether or not it will work correctly or in the worst case scenario, screw up your game. I just finished playing for an hour and it worked perfectly, but last night it was detecting nudges that didn't occur and wouldn't work at all when I shaked the machine furiously trying to save my ball. As someone that nudges and shakes an actual machine while I play this can seriously throw a monkey wrench into my overall performance in a game. Hopefully in the future there's an easy way to correct this issue or to calibrate the accelerometer as it seems purely up to chance when you turn the machine on if it will work correctly or not. There is a diagnostic mode on this but unfortunately there are no options for the accelerometer, and others have suggested just disconnecting it but I absolutely do not want to do that as, again, nudging the machine is a consistent part of my game strategy. There seems to be a 50/50 chance when I boot up the game that the accelerometer either works as intended or goes haywire and that sucks. I am going to email the company to see if they have a solution to this issue.
Another small complaint I have is the boot up sequence, you really shouldn't have to choose your language every time you start it up or deal with the game instructions though it's a very minor complaint at best and it's worth mentioning so hopefully the manufacturer sees this and takes note.
Aside from these issues though this machine is solid and I love every other aspect of it. Overall I am really happy with my purchase and will likely spend hundreds, if not thousands of hours on this thing just playing Attack From Mars alone. And when I get tired of that, which is unlikely as I've probably played this game thousands of times in the past, there's still 9 more games to play... a few of which I'm familiar with and really enjoy like No Good Gophers. If you're a huge fan of AFM you absolutely cannot go wrong with this game it looks fantastic, is well built, and plays exactly like the real thing... as long as the accelerometer is working correctly.May 16, 2021 14:16
Love this thing... heard mixed reviews but mine is awesome !!! Gets played everyday! Haven’t had any issues, was easy to put together and the ten pinball tables are hours and hours of endless fun!
My favorite Table so far is Arabian nights.
It has a lot of ramps and is really fun.. medieval madness is also a really great Table. And of course Attack from Mars ! These tables are legit fun the physics of these games is dynamic and was done ver well.... I’m so happyMay 14, 2021 15:45

nothing wrong with Best Buy refurbished or even the awesome system. the PS4 pro seems to have a serious flaw regarding a design issue where the sustem turns on by itself and off which messes with the os and hdd. often it will become to a point where i need to reinstall firmware.
there were several nights the system turned on by itself and kept resetting. i have read many issues regarding thiS.
BEST BESY DID A FANTASTIC JOB of refunding the system within my elite member day limit (30). without much issues.
i really recommend using Best Buy’s warrenty and after service. i been a member for about 15 years, and they never disappointed me.
the stat review goes toward the design flaw of the system NOT Best Buy.
Besides, the new PS5 came out, so I would wait to for that system instead when it becomes more available.Nov 14, 2020 05:24
I’ve always been wary of buying refurbished products online and this one just reminded me why. Figured it was a great deal at $299 which is $100 off..until I opened the box! Only thing inside was the PS4 console. It was missing the controller, power cord, hdmi cable, usb cable, and the headset! I returned it to the store and exchanged it for a new one. Geek Squad guy told me the refurbished items are packaged and shipped by Sony. They’re just sold on the Best Buy site. Thanks to Best Buy for some great customer service after the fact but somebody dropped the ball on this one!Jul 12, 2019 16:13
Bought this for my bf for his bday and I had him open it straight from the box. I had bought him an extra controller prior so that his nephew can play with him. Once he opened it, he realized it ONLY came with the console and 1 power cord. That's it. I reread the description from my receipt online and sure enough, it was suppose to include everything. Thankfully it was a geek squad approved refurbished console so I was able to swap it out but not after going to 2 best buys. The 1st one couldn't help since their systems were downAug 02, 2019 18:48
This was a horrible experience. First I received the PlayStation with no controller or power cord. Called customer service right away and was given the run around. Just to get a live person on the line took 2 hours. The phone system sucks! Kept hanging up on me. The customer service reps are not very knowledgeable of the system. Took over an hour just to get a label for return. I understand that right now with the pandemic thing are a little crazy but Best Buy needs to do a better job then this. Not happy at all.May 13, 2020 04:44
Everything came in the best condition. Works like a new Playstation Pro. I would 100% recommendMay 27, 2021 11:42
this one was a good deal just make sure to check that comes with every accessory listed on your orderJul 12, 2019 21:43
Purchased this game for my nephew. My son loves this game so I thought he would enjoy it as well. #GamingFamilyApr 25, 2020 15:03
