     With their unique sound and unusual mix of rock, blues and punk, Guns N' Roses undoubtedly was one of the most influential bands of their time.  The band obtained success during the period of 1987-1993, but the personalities of different band members, coupled with their heavy drug abuse and the controversial actions of lead singer Axl Rose hindered the group's ability to work together. Rose is the only original member in the current lineup.  I had the chance in November 2006 to see GnR on their Chinese Democracy tour.  I was a little apprehensive at first but after the show was over I was a reincarnated fan.  Now, if they would only release the album...

     The band might be broken up but the Guns N' Roses pinball still lives on with their hard hitting songs that still hold up over time.   The pinball cabinet is a wide-body giving about an extra 4 inches of playfield.  Instead of a plunger the player will find a colt 45 silver pistol to launch the ball.  The other side touts a rose plunger specifically for launching the ball into the "Snake Pit".  The artwork for Gun N' Roses is done faithfully in heavy use of blacks, reds and greens.  The ramps are done in with bright yellow, red and green that sets off the rest of the playfield.  Some of the artwork feature past albums with the mixings of band members jamming out.  The playfields also sports scantily clad women especially in the sling shot and multi-ball areas.  The whole playfield is appealing and fairly wide open considering all the game features in it.  There are 2 giant ramps laid out over the playfield, one for "Guns" the other "Roses.  There is a captive ball on the top left hand corner that has its on little space of playfield to score points off of targets.  One of the pop bumpers is also shares some of the action by being included in this area.  The game has a ton of guitar modes, 2 ramps, 3 flippers, 3 game controlled magnets, auto launcher, video mode with 3 and 6 ball multi-ball all with Guns and Roses hits playing in the background .
