I gave this one lots of time to give it a chance. It looks nice, has some cool light effects. It's not a game that you can walk up to it and after a few games know what to do. There are some gem modes that are really hard - nice for the tournament type players. This is a tournament friendly game. I learned quite a bit about the game, but still have a lot more depth to explore. That's normally ok, but the "fun factor" starts to run thin as you get further into it (in my opinion). The sounds and callouts are ok but could be better. The music is pretty terrible and doesn't really pull you in. Some of the animations and graphics are good, but others are like a cardboard cutout puppet show. I would prefer the movie assets, art, sounds, music, over the comic-based theme, but understand the licensing limitations. It's an "ok" game and the LE looks great!

This game is a champ from the word go. It has it all:
5 metal ramps! The ball does everything on this machine. Flows and combos galore. Kinetic satisfaction, exactly what Elwin is famous for. Playing the first game easily shows why Keith claims its his best layout ever! Game layout is not “drainey” and only punishes bad shots as all good layout do. In fact once you learn the shots, it is a long player that good players might to need make a little more challenging by opening up the outlanes more.

The code couldn’t be easier to understand. Collect gems, place them on one of 6 Avengers to fight Thanos and increase their powers. Couldn’t be simpler to follow. Nothing confusing about this game in the least. But it has depth of strategy that relies on the PF, not the screen. The screen complements the game theme and drives on PF action to enhance it only. All done in comic book fashion that will never date, instead of the movies that always date.

Music and callouts are spot on and work with the theme to bring the player into the moment of battling Thanos. Using each Avenger in a street fighter style epic work for pinball.

The many toys and features on this game shine, as the player advances to each challenge, using Visions computer, with trophy quests to complete objectives. Dr Strange Vortex and spinning disk is easliy one of the best toys in all of pinball. Under the table view into the vortex keeps things fun, as the ball advances through the locks into the Antman upkick to the wire return form. Amazing multiball play, with all the wire forms on this game sending balls in all kinds of directions. It is an exhilarating sight to behold. Nothing in pinball to its equal. This game has it all and one of the best shooters ever designed!!

Easy to shoot once shot placement on the flippers are discovered and since the shots are long and to the back of the PF. One of Elwin’s top game’s is easily demonstrated on AIQ. What a game to own!!!

I thought I'd like this game much more than I did. I'm a marvel fan, and quite enjoyed Stern's X-Men table.. so I expected more from the Avengers!

Overall I found it very confusing what to shoot for. The layout was confusing and there was WAY too much use of the video screen. It was hard to watch the video screen, to find what you were meant to be shooting for, while keeping an eye on the ball. Honestly I've played 15 or 20 games on this machine and still have a hard time with the game modes. It's not used friendly at all. Visually, it's a stunning machine. The artwork and videos are great! Very cool theme and I really want to like it! If I'm paying my own money to play this out in the wild.. I expect a more satisfying experience. I just don't get it with Avengers.

This is a strong and Really fun Pinball title. The Ramps everywhere are all very targetable and very unique. The theming is very solid with a comic twist. Very, very smooth shooting game, this is one of the smoothest shooting machines I have ever played. Needs more variation on the play sounds and music, but other than that this is one rock solid Game that is a top 10 contender for sure!

Another awesome Elwin game… a little “drainy” at times but the shots just feel awesome. Some folks complain about the rules being too confusing… there is just so much going on and so many ways to tackle this game. Personally…I love it. Extremely fun figuring everything out! Own the Pro but play the Premium on location near me. Honestly, the game plays VERY similar. Cap Marvel ramp is awesome on Premium/LE but I feel the spinner on the pro is more consistent (less rejects) making it a bit easier to proceed in the game. You cant go wrong either way.

This is definitely one of the best Sterns. The playfield layout is unique and not cookie cutter like so many other pins. Really the only drawback to the game is it's difficult to understand the rules.

I’ve played the pro many times and really like it. None of the LE upgrades do much for me, the glove is ok, the opening disk is neat but doesn’t add much, the vertical ramp looks exciting but isn’t. The yellow scheme looks worse to me. All trim levels have amazing gameplay and flow.

Best shots of nearly any pinball machine. There are lots of different ways to play the game. You need to put a lot of time into it to really appreciate it.

This is a hard machine, getting a stone is not easy. The rules are difficult. Bit dissapointed that there is not any movie but they took the comic route. The machine looks beautiful but is not for me. Shots are hard. Outlanes are brutal. To progress through the game is hard.

This machine was disapointing to me. First of all I don't like the yellow color, other there wasn't any connection to movies. Some voices were really annoying. All features are quite difficult and rulesheet impossible to understand without good rulebook. For expert players this is good choice and if you are huge comic fan. Game is so difficult that it is hard to want to play it again. Theme is nice but overall music / playfield not so good for my taste.
Of course because it is new machine all voices and artwork are with good quality.

This is an above average Stern, but the phoned in theme stops it from truly being a table worth your time.

The good is that the shots are an absolute delight when you hit them. The ramps are extreme, and the whole table has an excellent feel. The bad is the voice acting. Why can't Stern hire better voice actors? It just feels phoned in and low rent.

The rule set is incomprehensible. If I added this to my home collection, I'm sure I would learn it - but to play on location, it's just too much.

Great game, and we’ll made.

this game might have some of the best rules and playfield layout no doubt... however its one of the worst themed games. The CGI on the screen is probably Sterns worst ever. Lastly the game should have been based on the movie which hurts the long term last ability of the game. good game for a tournament player but not so great for the collector.

I love all the wireforms and the crazy places they deliver the ball but the rules are not that intuitive. Battles seem too similar and not as fun/varied as it could be. Pretty game in that the art on the playfield and cabinet are done nice. Music can be a bit dull. Overall it is a pretty decent game but not one of Stern's best.

I have had an LE on loan in my basement for the past 2 months.

This is the deepest game I have rotated through my basement. If you want something with a deep ruleset to get through, this is an excellent choice. However, the rules are not the most straightforward I have seen.

There are lots of shots to make. The rising spinner is cool, as is the Marvel Ramp. However, the tunnel does nothing for the game, and the mechanism that makes the ball go through the tunnel slowly is kind of pointless.

The sounds on this game are... okay and the music is repetitive and not exciting.

The artwork is good.

There are tons of ramps on this puppy, and if you are a ramp guy this is the game for you.

Animations are pretty poor... they are static pictures that move around.

If you are a good player, this is a great game, but this is not for pinball noobs and not an easy game to understand.

A typical game ball is as follows.

1. Shoot the infinity portal a bunch until it opens, then get a ball inside.
2. Start a quest, if you are an advanced player you can pick something strategy wise.
3. Shoot lit targets, try to start a Thor (captive ball) or Ironman (Stark Tower) multiball.
4. Repeat

The main objective in the game seems to be to complete modes, with an emphasis on starting multiballs while in modes.

Overall, a great game for a pinball expert, but a novice is going to have a very hard time on this. It is the type of game where if I have family over that wants to play I have a hard time explaining it.

Had a chance to play an LE on location, great game. Avengers Infinity Quest seems to be a game made for the tournament player with modes focused primarily scoring points versus offering a deep quest based experience. The ruleset in AIQ is deep and the modes themselves have different strategies to them (placing gems on character shots). However, the ruleset doesn't have a feeling of putting the player on a quest to defeat Thanos, the complexity of the rules and lack of mode choreography contribute to that in my opinion.

The layout on AIQ is one of the best that Stern has put out with a ton of unique shots spread throughout the playfield. The main center ramp can feel a bit awkward to hit from the upper left flipper but it's still a makeable shot. Call outs are unfortunately rather generic and forgettable. Music again is just average in my opinion. Animations are subpar, a vast majority of the animations are static images that briefly change flying in and out of the screen.

As far as toys go I just feel that they just average. I'm not sure what the spinning disk is supposed to represent from the Dr. Stranger character. With that being said it's nice to see the spinning disk lift up to reveal a shot into a physical ball lock. The subway ball lock with view is a great concept but more often then not you can't easily see the balls actually locked. I suppose the Avengers tower shot can be considered a toy but besides that the game feels a bit lacking in the toy / feature department (similar to Iron Maiden) versus Keith's last title Jurassic Park.

Just another incredible game by Elwin. The guy is 3 for 3! I do hope they add a little more depth beyond Trophy Mania. I have never gotten there, but close. I guess that is the end of the game, effectively. The rules are great as they stand and it shoots like butter. Looks great too!
I will say it was overwhelming at the start with the gem rules (and still is a bit), but there is so much greatness here. I am a person who digs deep and studies rules, for the record. I can see that it might be too much for people who aren't into that level of study. Still , I think you can have fun just shooting instead of shooting, planning, shooting, planning....

Really cant comprehend the negative comments on this game. It is a true masterpeice in all aspects that actually matter with the only let down being some of the animations & personality.

But once you get it, it bites hard. It's a piece of genius and absolutely Elwins best.

I don’t see all the fuss with this game. Played it a number of times and just don’t find the code enjoyable. Not enough variety in the shots and gameplay. The upper flipper in particular is not well placed or setup.

I owned this from new. Straight out of the box.
I found it clunky with the ball lock feature. I love an upper flipper and that works, however generally I didn't find it comparable to the king of PF layouts JP. The first mini wizard mode is a chore and should be optional. Code can fix that. Theme to me is lame but that's my demographic...Callouts were meh. The rules are not intuitive, they are not easily understood. I'm a nerd, have owned 55 games and this game is the only one I've played where I couldn't immediately pickup "most" of the rules. If I struggle, the average punter is in trouble.
I wanted to like this and was impressed with the first stream. After a few hundred games, it needed the boot.
Prefer the PRO on this one.

This game is a keeper! Elwin is a genius. His layouts are top notch and this one has the one more game feel every time I play. The new Thanos attacks really adds to the progression. Rules are deep and modes have a differentiating strategy. Gems add another aspect with different levels of powers that coincide with gameplay strategy. Soul Gem is one of the most enjoyable mini wizard modes with limited flips. Cabinet artwork is flawless. ZY never disappoints! Ramps galore on the playfield and the Captain Marvel Ramp and vertical Avenger Tower hold is a real head turner. Please, please, please add CoOp. That would take this game to the next level.
