When I first saw the backglass and playfield, I was awestruck. Of course, I played the full 4K version. I can't say I have ever seen better resolution on a table. I saw no jaggies when I zoomed onto the playfield to the max extent possible with the manual camera. Tomásaco produced some of the finest graphics I have ever seen.
