This game is truly amazing and I couldn't believe when my buddy was able to find me a fully-functioning one is great shape. I could play this game for hours. It's pretty impressive how it holds up to newer games in my opinion. I'm a huge Indiana Jones fan and this game definitely hits it on all levels for me. There are a lot of shots, the playfield is beautiful, all of the little added 'toys' are really fun, and the game flows very well. I'd say it edges out Addams Family in terms of fun and quality in my opinion. This is another machine I would never sell or trade out of my collection.

Lots of fun toys on this one, but something different always seems to not work when I play it at my local pinball lounge.

It's a really nice game. Certainly a must have for a respectable pinball collection. However I believe that in many occasions the game is over rated and that its price is very high.

I wasn't sure how much I'd like this game but it surprised me. No magnets or extra flippers but its a pretty fast paced game with lots of variety. With LEDs and PINSOUND its really as good as it gets.

Best game out there

This honestly isn't one of my favorite pins. Its just a bit slow for my taste personally, and the video mods although plenty and fun, are less important to me than the actual shots and gameplay. Its a great game, but not one of my personal favorites.

This is a grail game. Fun every time you press the button. Permanent addition to my collection. Never leaving.

This is my favorite pinball machine of all time. I'm partial to the game simply because of the Indiana Jones theme. I believe the designers of this game took every great part of the first three Indy films and made modes out of them. The call-outs on this game are beyond great (especially if you are an Indy fan). Honestly this machine has the best application of a theme, hands-down. This game will never leave my collection. Upgrade your Indy with a Pinsound with a new high fidelity audio mix and you will be blown away by the audio experience of this machine.

The hype is real. This game has it all. Great shots, lots of multi balls, upper play field and many modes to keep you playing. I am so blessed to have this game in my collection. Like all pins it must be dialed in to play well.

This is my favorite game and I've owned 6.....deep play rules and options. Video game play and music is awesome.

Best wide-body ever. Great flow, fun sounds and animations, and solid theme integration. The mine escape mode is my favorite backbox animation mode of any game. A well-rounded machine that is always satisfying & fun to play.

Of the three super pins, I don’t see how this has creeped up higher than STTNG. I always considered this a distant third of the series. Maybe I need to play it more but I don’t find the game particularly attractive and the center shots feel similar and I don’t find the sounds particularly immersive. On the other hand, there are a lot of cool things happening in the game.

I played a lot at this pinball machine back in 1993 and in 1994, i.e. when it arrived at the arcade where I used to play 2-3 times per week (The Labyrinth, in Quebec city / Ste-Foy). I really enjoyed this game for its lastability, theme, sounds and music, playfield & widebody, toys (path of adventure, idol multiball) and gameplay.
I would like to add this pinball machine to my collection, but this one is hard to find in a good condition, and very expensive too. I continue to hope...

This game seems like it would be far more enjoyable at home than on location. You just need time to get into it.
Great theme and playfield. For some reason, however, I never find one "in the wild" that has good lighting...which is frustrating.

These things are getting tough to find because no one turns them loose. The price on these is going up quickly due to great demand and hardly any supply. Get one if you can.

A fun game - even if it is more than 20 years old

I had always wanted to play this game and went to Pincinnati in 2018. There was no line for the game and I had my run at it for a good half hour. I’m a little lost on what all the hype is about with this machine. The theme and toys are pretty cool but I found the game play rather difficult. I had trouble hitting shots and it drained viciously on me. It was down right brutal. I’m going to put it up there with GB for the ball finding the right drain! Maybe for a higher skill level player. I didn’t find it much fun. Everything seemed packed toward the flippers with little room to recover if you missed a shot.

Easily one of the best pins of all time and a personal favorite. You cant beat the theme. music and sound are both amazing. Incredible modes, challenging shots... everything you want, and i love a wide body.

A beautiful machine visually,and a fabulous theme.this game would suit any player,the wide body packs a lot in.the video games are awesome especially with a colour display. If you are an Indiana Jones movie fan you will love this game especially the way they integrated the 3 movies into the one game. The stern version couldn’t hold a candle to this.

This truly is an adventure! The atmosphere this game creates is simply outstanding. The shots feel variable, yet comprehensive a good to anticipate once a mode starts.
It just feels right and it took five years in my collection, before the spot was taken by another machine.
Not long ago, I decided to get another Indy, since the whole family missed the first one.
