To start with, I don't know if there is any better looking game than IJ... the sideart, the playfield, the backglass, it's just incredible, and the game sounds as good as it looks, with tons of voice calls from the movies, custom voice work, great effects and music straight from the soundtrack. The playfield has some great stuff going on, the ramps and lanes are very tight tho, and the game seems to drain a bit too easily, although the "narrow escape" gate is way cool.. The Path of Adventure and the Idol lock are both cool ideas, but they take up alot of playfield space and don't do a whole lot besides look really neat. It never quite makes up it's mind if it wants to be a shooters game or a flow game, but does a good job being a little of both. Finally, the rules and software are solid, but it's a bit heavy on the modes (as most of the games of it's era are) and needed some more interesting objectives within those modes. The final mode is nearly impossible, it's like 23 shots in 30 seconds in a 6 ball multiball, but hey, it is super intense!
IJ is a fantastic game, a great license and especially if you love the movies, one worth playing or owning.
