I have to say that on this note you are wrong. The GEM shot in Tron is great IMHO and I will tell you why. It takes a bit of skill to hit and this is a plus in my book. You can also hit the GEM multiple ways.
1 you can plunge the shot
2 you can hit the shot off the standup targets (pro which I have)
3 you can hit from 3rd flipper
When the target bank is down its not hard to hit from the 3rd flipper. The Gem and the Right orbit through the pops are the 2 hardest shots to hit in the game. If you take the GEM shot out you take alot of skill away from the game. After owning the game for a year and putting over 1k plays on it and read things like this gets me a bit angry. Yes for someone who doesnt have alot of time on TRON can get mad at the shot but as an owner.....u got to love it. Also with the new code if you cant complete GEM you can now collect a shot at the arcade.
The Light show and Music are the best in pinball!
Flow and ball times are perfect!
The game just looks so good!
Hot chicks! Must I go on???
