Great game, tough, deep rule set. Some great shots, but also a lot of wasted energy on two ramps. Will all the gems ever be collected?

I bought this game without trying it before, and i do not regret my choice! An amazing pinball that plays great, great flow, a LOT to do, challenging but not crual even for a poor skilled player like me.

Great addition to my collection. Had a hard time deciding between Premium and Pro, ended up going with the Pro after watching some streams on both and talking to some fellow owners of the game, no regrets going with the Pro. You get the complete game, and even one of the defining features of the Premium (the subway) is covered pretty well by the shallow subway (lights vs ball trough) on the Pro. As for the game, my whole family loves it, the other games are currently collecting dust in favor of AIQ. It's a great game for a casual play, but the very deep ruleset along with a couple of very tricky shots makes it a players game too. It's probably one of the best 'home' games too - because the lastability is through the roof - I feel like I haven't scratched the surface of the rules after a month. The artwork on this thing is phenomenal - the playfield, translite, and cabinet tie together perfectly. The only downside is that some of the voicework is kind of lame and the music isn't the best (still 'good enough'). I see this one staying in the collection for a long time - at least until I convince myself to upgrade to a Premium!

Pros:
The shots and ball movement are beautiful and flow well.
Love the upper flipper shot as well as the unique design of the upper right ramp that you can hit from all 3 flippers.

Deep ruleset that you can keep playing and playing and never get bored.

Amazing animations and voice work that are synchronized beautifully and get the blood flowing every time.

Cons:
The rules are not very intuitive and practically require a spreadsheet next to you while you play.

For me this is the perfect pinball machine. It plays really fast. The ramps are well positioned to the flippers and games can be quite long and constantly entertaining. There are so many missions to complete, it will take months of constant play to get anywhere near the end... then there is trying to get Gold trophies for every mission.

Heard about the game but don't care about the theme. I think I will ever find the patience to view the movie but only because this game makes me curious about the movie. From a friend I heard this game is something else so I played it at his house one time. He has a LE version and although I hate most powder coated crapp out there I found this to be a decent looking table. I even loved it. The game appealed to me from the first time and I was able to set a decent score (I thought).
A few weeks went by and I was selling my TMNT i didn't care for. After selling it I ordered my Avengers PRO. (I'm a pro guy, prems and LE are way too expensive for what you are getting). This week it was delivered and the journey began. I added some mods to make it pop some more (invisi glass, shaker, mirrors, subwoofer, convolux and some other nicknags). But dahamn what a supernice table. I think this is one of Stern's best themes until now. I got a Guardians of the galaxy next to it, a Stranger Things and a Jurassic Park. I think the lineup is complete now.

So now after playing it I feel confident to rate it.

Pro's:
Great lightshow
Great sound effects
Great shots
Superb toys
Wireramps (I love those)
Deep ruleset
Not a drainer (unlike turtles)
Great game for everybody
Beautiful artwork
Much different multiballs
Really satisfying shots

Cons:
Well, for me this machine has no cons. I can imagine that not everyone can understand what the hell is going on.
The pro lacks some great toys, the 180 degree ramp is epic, and so is the lifting spinning disc. And that hand of thanos with the gem lights i am missing the most. But hey, I cheaped out so I cannot complain.

Overall: this game is epic. The theme fits the table perfectly, execution is done really well and it keeps me coming back for more.

9/10 for me.

I think it is a little overly complex, but it has grown on me. I think if I play it a bit more I will get the hang of the rules. There are a good variety of shots, but not too much wow factor on toys and gimmicks especially considering how much they have to work with for a theme. Above average, and def a lot to explore. I would still recommend Deadpool if you like Marvel. Art and sound effects are really well done.

Excellent Game! We love it! I was waiting for the LZ to come out and when that disappointment hit I decided to purchase IQ Pro instead. Very glad I did. It's the whole package. Great Art on the Backglass, Playfield, and Cabinet. Flow and shots are really fun and satisfying. Fun for seasoned players and beginners. Pro is not missing much and the faster play removing the subway is a bonus in my opinion. Definitely a keeper and glad I had a another chance to own it when the second run came around.

One of my top 5 favorites, nice gameplay, nice set of rules, and just plain fun. Great use of ramps and other special features - plus it seems like a game that you can get a good flow going without constantly draining.

Another homerun from Keith Elwin. Great flow, fun modes and great art package. Just wish Stern games were built better. You can feel the difference in quality when you go from a Stern to a JJP or Bally Williams game.

After day one of this being in my house the neighbors and I are really enjoying it. Thr rules are some 50 pages long, so that will take time to learn but your still able to just jump on and have fun. The magnet lock ramp is pretty cool.

I really wanted to love this game. I read up on the rules and watched all the you tube videos. I am just not a fan of the music and call outs. It feels like I am being read a comic book, which is what the designers intended, but I think it’s a letdown. I just don’t get pulled into the game like I do when playing JP. The Tony Stark voice is cringeworthy. No great animations, just some comic book style images.

Now with that said, the layout is nice and the shots are all smooth. I can see very long ball times happening once you get a feel for the shots. It’s hard to tell if the deep rules are enough to make this a long lasting pin in a home collection because the shots, although not super easy, are definitely easier to hit continuously in comparison to JP or TMNT. Maybe the pin I played wasn’t level but I did notice more SDTM drains than outlane drains.

The pro version feels like there is a lot of empty space. Maybe I hyped myself up too much. If the sound and animations were better this pin would be a top 5 all day because of the unique rules. My guess is that it will hang around the #10 spot.

I've owned this for a few months now and have put around 300 games on it. I was overall happy with it for the first month and half, but it's just now really clicking with me. Shots and rules are top notch. CM shot is still satisfying enough on the pro, obviously not sweet as the prem/le, but still a decent quick shot. Tower magnet is fun every time and the Hawkeye Challenge is fun to try and pull off. The additional start up mode for Battle Royale is really fun. It's the only mode my kid will ever play.
It's one of the good Pros for sure and will most likely stick around my house for a good while.

New to my collection, some fun in hobbling together a figure driven topper. Helps the look tremendously. Game play is really fun. Simple to understand, challenging to shoot, satisfying when you hit them and it hooks you when you miss them. Drain challenge is about average. The machine takes bumps and nudges well into the flow. The challenge option is way cool, and Black Dwarf is now my nemesis.

Bought the Pro without ever playing it and am really happy with the purchase so far (by contrast bought the 2012 Avengers LE NIB and it was rough). This Avengers experience is totally different and positive. Both me and the kids are loving the game and there is a line to play it. After about twenty games I can say the game shoots well, flow is good, shots are rewarding and accessible. I've read people think the Captain America shot is tight, it is tight but it runs through the bumpers so you can miss it and the bumpers might make it for you which makes it sort of fun. I'd also say the Captain Marvel spinner is a fun shot so don't miss the ramp (admittedly might not know what i'm missing). As of the 1.01 update the rules have been fixed and have become a strength. Finally, I love the way this pin looks in the lineup.

This is my 2nd pin owned (after JP) and overall it's an amazing pin

Pros:
-- Variety of shots available to hit
-- Innovative features (magnetic Avenger Tower; ability to hit right ramp with all three pins)
-- Smoothness of shots (very satisfying when you hit the ramps or orbits, like cutting butter)
-- How quickly you can get multiballs
-- Art work on playfield and cabinet are just beautiful

Cons (not many)
-- Voice acting and animation are bland (I am sure this will be the number one feedback by most who play the game)
-- Cheap side drains happen a lot, especially off of the slings, which can disrupt gameflow and become frustrating (that was not an issue for example on JP); mostly happens because of the slings, and you have no control over it.

got this game 15 days in a home location, and as a "player" i've played/seen lot of it... tested in 0.93 & 0.94 version, i quickly understand what to do & how to play it, even if the GEM tactic remain something to go further in, with multiple possibilities... game is fast, quite hard at outlanes (tanx to the slings), lots of flow when you master the needeed shoots... at first rules were complicated, than all became quickly "easy", its not as deep as you would think, the 6 avengers to advance into the game, the GEM if you want to play as intended (and than aim for hi scores), the super modes add more fun & side bonus (but in fact you dont want to play all of them)... i like the drops targets matrice (in fact this is very important & a real key in the game), as the combos, also very important... in conclusion i found the game to be a good one, but didnt get the WOW feeling i directly get with JP... and my son, also a player, is very critical with AIQ, to first being positive with the game, but than playing it each day makes his feeling to finally not liking it (i think he's hard but OK its personal to him)... also dont forget its not fully coded, than need to be judged again in 1 or 2 years time, when code is 100% mature)

This was my first ever purchase so I ended up splurging and going for a NIB Avengers and it hasn’t disappointed. Great play, super smooth and challenging. I have 10 year old twins and it’s not over the top too difficult for them. They’ve been able to figure out the initial level rules pretty easily. It’s super deep so not sure if we will ever get a chance to battle Thanos, but we will keep trying. It’s fast, but not too fast. They really out did themselves with this one.

Great concept, takes a awhile to get used to, much to learn with this deep code. I had fun, but won't add to my collection.
