Great lastability!

The modes were good, but lacked some polished theatrics - the sound, music, visuals, & light shows could have been better. Maybe that is the best technology back then. (???) The game was fun to play and that is important to me, but some of the other ratings bring it back down. Maybe some mods would help spruce it up a bit.

I really wanted to like playing this pin since Indiana Jones is one of my favorite movie characters. Unfortunately, I just don't feel it (played at Pinball Hall of Fame in Vegas and Pacific Pinball Museum in SF). I just couldn't get into any flow and just couldn't connect with the table at all. Maybe I just need to play even more.

Great game. I think that is one of the best Pinball machine ever made by the King of Pinball manufacturer, Williams.

Now Indiana Jones is how you execute a wide body pin design. This, to me, is what The Hobbit should have taken a clue from. The play field is packed with variation and things to do.

What's great about Indy is you can easily start modes and they're completable. It's not easy by any means but you can see the whole game (unlike, say, Ghostbusters, where you're playing the same modes over and over).

The best wide body pin ever.

It is hard to imagine a better pinball game all the way around. Endlessly fun and balanced so well it defies physics and logic.

This is the game that hooked me on pinball, back in college.

A near perfect pin I would say. Very well theme integration.

What I like:
-Artwork on cabinet
-many modes and videomodes (3)
-good soundtrack

What I don't like:
-Playfield artwork (little cartoonish)
-It is hard to make the shots because they are small and it are many.

These widebody Superpins that are crammed to the breaking point with toys and shots and modes are right in my wheelhouse. I LOVE this game.

If I have one complaint it's that the game has a lot of multiballs and I'm a bigger fan of single ball play. The Path of Adventure is kind of cooler in concept than execution, but even if it was just a straight bagatelle playfield it would be fine.

Beautiful pin. Not one more in any collection. Perfect combination between the theme and the game. Colordmd and Pinsound puts IJ on another level.

I really love this game. Even though he has more than 20 years, you still play with lots of fun. Kids love it. it is a real family flipper but also a hard one with many histories to complete ! A must have !

Great theme integration. Ball seem to get lost coming out of the pops. Best video modes. Seemed a bit slow at times. Enjoyed it, but like others better.

A true classic as it does everything so well. The toys perfectly relate to the theme. The team working on this game must have had fun designing this game as every shot is just so fun! Even the video modes are super fun. They squeezed so much into this superpin.

This is the best integrated movie machine made in my opinion. It looks fantastic and plays great. Great shots and mini playfield is fun to control the ball travel. Theres a reason these command good money. I traded an original Iron Man a few years ago for this game and do not regret it, and that machine rocked. You will not be disappointed with it and if you are, you will have no problem selling or trading it. Great machine.
