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.

Have not played it in depth but seemed like a fin game. Would pick on up if the price was right but price seems high for what the value is.

It is vitally important that you play one of these that is properly set up and fully working. Without a working path of adventure, or weak flippers, or with the ball bouncing out of the mode hole, the game is a totally different experience. But when the game is working as designed, it is a thing of beauty. The layout isn't the best out there (I think a previous reviewer called the ball falling out of the pop bumpers the most boring moment in pinball, and he is probably right), but the theme integration is hard to beat. If you are a fan of the movies, it is hard not to enjoy this pin.

A theme I love but a game I just do not. The idol is OK but the upper playfield is pretty silly and does not work very well. The mode start does not catch the ball unless it has been adjusted which is a major flaw in a mode based game. The artwork drives me crazy. I love the first 3 movies but this game just doesn't grab me.

Enjoy this game a lot. Ramp it a bit to get the speed and it's very good. Great if you like video modes. Which I do.

The IJ theme is very well done. Complete with the themesong & likeness of all the actors. I love the shot selection, it's fast & the toys are very unique. One of the best pins ever!

The license tie in of this particular machine is spot on for the movies, particularly the modes from each of the films.
The game has great shot flow, and has a very challenging wizard mode to achieve. It beats the Stern version of Indiana Jones with its pants around its ankles, blindfolded, and upside down. If you have a Stern machine which is a complete wet soggy noodle, just get rid of it, go find a nice one, spend the money, own this title, and you will thank me. Mechanically, it is not that big of problem to maintain, as the motor assemblies, plastics, ramps, and other parts have been reproduced. I have owned my machine since 1998, if this gives you an idea of its overall quality of the title. It is not leaving my collection.
