Not a top 10 or anything, but a definite top 40. And I think it's also better than Mindbender, which ranks way higher at 53. Those of you who are Shockwave fans, be sure to vote this year when the steel poll opens!
I know that a lot of old school enthusiasts prefer SFoG overall, which helps Mindbender a lot. But what do people out here think about the two?
I really enjoyed Shockwave, but Mindbender is just simply amazing. It really doesn't do for me to compare them though...they are both awesome but so very, very different. Mindbender's use of the terrain (going over the side of that hill) makes it rate in my top 10. Some nostalgia there, but it is so unique in it's layout and setting that I would prefer it regardless.
Thanks guys for the amazing pictures though. Any Anton is good Anton for me
