What is your favorite mode? The one you find the most fun. For me the dmd animations, sound, and difficulty of the mode all have to mesh perfectly. I love the Warg Battle on LOTR and Farley Claymore on The Shadow.

Alien Invasion TSPP
Mystery Spot TSPP is also one of a kind

My favorite modes seam to be the simple ones. Ent Battle in LOTR... just really straight-forward, uncomplicated, shoot the tower over and over to break the dam in the allotted time. Great sound effects. Simple and straightforward, but really a critical mode to make progress toward Return of the King (collecting all those souls).

Also really like Bone Saw on SM... "Oooooh Yeeaaaaah". Sound effects of the body shots every time you trip a switch is awesome (especially with subwoofer and shaker moter blasting). Another really simple, uncomplicated mode that's tons of fun.

I really love add a ball multiball. RFM has one and so does sttng.

You can do it once in lotr by lighting the plantir target and hitting it, but it only works once after that you get points.

Feed T-Rex on Jurassic Park.

Martian Attack on AFM.

AFM strobe multiball. Awesome with the lights off (Warning: may cause epilepsy).


3 years ago

Alien Invasion or any of the LOTR modes I really like - Fellowship multiball, crossing the bridge or
Gandalf vs Saruman - lots of good modes in LOTRs


3 years ago

Wow, so many good ones. I really only have knowledge with Williams/Bally pins in this regard, and I like IJ's Well of Souls and Hidden Treasure modes. On TZ I like the clock modes (always a challenge to max points without draining). Martian Attack and Total Annihilation rocks on AFM (especially when combined), and on WH20, it's a blast to play the Ride the Whirlpool mode if you can juggle the balls just right and complete the mode 2 or more times in a single session without losing a ball.

As far as Sterns go, I've played a few games of LOTR and TSPP, and I don't have a good grasp of the rules on those, but I did enter some modes that I think would be a blast once I got a handle on the rules of each game, so I'm betting some modes from either of those games would be at the top of my list once I'm more familiar with them.

LOTR modes are the best. Mulitball rules are even better. I wish every stern had at least one multiball that followed the two towers "combo multiball" rules.

Speaking of, Combo Multiball on SM is fun and very challenging to reach. I like the rules in Battle Royale too.

D'oh Frenzy on TSPP. Every switch makes a different Homer "D'oh!" sound when triggered. Makes me bust out laughing every time I get it. Awesome....

Later,

Id have to agree with Ninjabones. Both War of the Ents and Bonesaw have a clear, succinct strategy that when played in conjunction with a multiball are fantastic. I think thats what I love, the best modes are the ones that aren't independent, they can be stacked or feed in to some other element of the game, its all about smart rules on the programmers part, very cool.

I think that the best wizard mode that I have played is Super Hero, now that is an adrenaline rush

I enjoy the Monster Bash mode on MB quite a bit. The sequence of the lighting and monsters coming out to play, and the music are all great!


3 years ago

Borg multiball
Fellowship multiball


3 years ago

I agree Borg multiball is awesome. Especially when get the balls locked in the Borg ship.

The Sandstorm in Stargate is pretty cool.


3 years ago

TSPP has the best ruleset for handling modes. Stack them at will and beat the clock to keep them going almost indefinitely. I can't say enough about the greatness of TSPP and I haven't even got to AI yet! It's no coincidence that TZ left my house shortly after TSPP arrived.

Well the Flash, you are not!

Alien Invasion

honorable mention: Casino Run

Multiball aint a mode so I it cant be included in this thread imo. In terms of modes, good ones are always ones you need to complete. Eg: STTNG for the singing stones etc, LOTR for the GOTE. I like shadows modes as they have great sound and DMD graphics. Rope bridge on IJ is fun, Q is good on sttng as the shots change, Dirty Harry also has some funny modes (scratch one dirtbag).

A big +1. 2 tower multi-ball is the best mode. Get the extra ball in play and it triple jackpot time. Once MB is completed you’re up for SUPER JACKPOT WHOOWH WHOOWH WHOOWH!! My favorite part of the whole game.

Another great mode. Its just fun to hit that left ramp to start it and after you hit all your shots its just very satisfying.

One of the easy modes in the game. Not my fav but I can see where your coming from. 3 shots all go to that tower or you can just back hand it in for many souls. When I start this mode it almost always give you ROTK multi-ball.

Even tho I hate the game I still enjoy SHOWTIME on TAF.

No Fear's Meet Your Maker is great.

Are we excluding wizard modes. Else I don't see much competition to Cirqus Voltaire.

In my collection I'd say:

TSPP: Alien Invasion & Mystery Spot
CV - The whole Join the Cirqus wizard mode is awesome.


3 years ago

I really enjoy all of the games that I own. But, I especially like the modes in LOTR. Each mode stands on it own as a game within the game. But also, each mode is a stepping stone to a higher stage in the game (TABA and Valinor). LOTR has very well thought out software, IMO.


3 years ago

LoTR is the king of modes IMO. Ring wraiths and TABA are my personal favorites.

Runner up for me would have to be sexy party in FGY.

Have to agree, and reading this thread reminded me of how many great modes there are on LOTR. Sheesh....making me miss it even more.

I've been called a twisted psychopath for loving it, but 15+ years later and TAF's Seance is still my favorite. So satisfying to get past the power and hear/feel those big knockers letting loose. =]

You can post whatever you like. I was talking modes not Wizard Modes. We could start a thread about that.......it might have already been done though.

This is like eating just one pringle.

I cannot decide so many mentioned are really fun.

Tough choice selecting a favorite mode, but The Two Towers multiball is easily my favorite multiball. Want that 84x combo so bad!

Wow I think LOTR has the most votes.

I think Skill Fire on Congo is fun, lucrative and very creative. No other game has a specific mode for all skill shots.

Martian Hypnobeam on RFM is always awesome if you're playing it in a dark room!
