***** by GravMaster. Comment: "Best game of all time. There can't be more than a handful of people around the world that made it through all the invisible planets. Played it for 12 hours straight one day in my youth. " 2003-01-26 03:00:57Z

***** by GravitarMan. Comment: "I was one of the handful of people that completed the entire game in Invisible mode/Reverse gravity. It took a long time and many quarters and I wasted too much time in College doing it but it was a blast to get to the end of the game on one quarter. My heart was racing and I was sweating a ton but it was one of my fondest memories of the 80's. I never found a game that gave me such satisfaction as Gravitar." 2003-04-06 18:50:41Z

***** by Squarefish_x2. Comment: "My favorite game. I discovered it a couple years ago through Mame -- I loved it so much I bought a full size upright. My high score is 3,652,700 (trying to beat Ray Muellers 4.7 million point game from Dec. 83) I set up a Gravitar web site: Check it out if you want more info on the best game." 2003-12-04 19:22:12Z

*    by GraviStar. Comment: "I spent many, many hours in high school playing this game (including skipping a class or three). Despite what the site review says, this was not a difficult game to play, but a challenging one! The challenge made it a love-it-or-hate it game. It was certainly worth the time and memories." 2005-04-18 23:32:32Z

**** by jschlarb. Comment: "Just bought a really nice Gravitar here in GA; cabinet colors are nice & bright, and the original WG monitor still works great. The original owner was reluctant to sell it, and now I know why! I'm a pinball nut, but I'm really glad to have Gravitar as one of 2 vids in my collection (the other is Galaga). Very challenging & addictive!! " 2005-05-07 18:59:06Z
