Underrated. Should be in low 20's...

This is a pretty fun game to play. Some very good game flow from a solid playfield design and some fun surprises along the way. Like with Metallica and Lord of the Rings, Stern was having a good day designing this one.

I have heard lots about this game but haven't had a chance to play it. Enjoy the Iron Man movies and finally bought the game. Very challenging game, lots of fun. It is a challenging game for sure, but that is what makes it great.
Was hoping Stern might reproduce some more, so I could pick up a new one. That didn't happen so glad I got a chance to pick an exc. condition used one.
Love the voice clips and music.
Overall, I would highly recommend this game if you like quick games.

Very good fast action machine - intense and challenging! I don't mind the monger toy that much but I can see how it bothes some folks, since it certainly limits what you can shoot at. It looks like this is a love it or hate it machine for most. The theme doesn't really grab me, but the game play does so still very fun and deserves a fairly high rating. I may not seek it out to buy it, but will definitely play it when I get the chance.

Makes BSD seem easy. The rules suck. The do or die shot requires all five characters lit on the same ball and do not carry over. The Jericho wiz mode is pretty darn difficult to collect on default setting (no carryover). The ultimate wizard mode, do or die multiball is near unobtainable. I honestly think i could play this game 10 times every day for the rest of my life and not get the wizard mode. So, basically, the rules are shallow and impossible at the same time. There isn't much to see or do and what is there cannot be obtained. I'd rather play a game with 30 modes and miss the last 5! Weird rant right there. sorry.

Overall, a nice machine to play. But, and maybe it was the one I played on, it just did not seem to flow very well. The magnet at the top of the playfield added some variation, which was quite fun.

This game feels sparse. Love the theme of Ironman, but the gameplay just isn't there.

Iron Man is Real Pinball !!!!!!!

Ironman is a game that's frustrating in the best kind of way. It's a fast and unforgiving game that really challenges your skill. I'm a huge fan of the Iron Man theme & consider this one of my favorite games around.

If you want to brag about being a 30 second wonder, this could be your game. Holy crap can this thing destroy you in short order. But..............when you get into a groove on this game, it rocks (literally with the sound cranked up) You may make up new swear words when you play this game and that kind of grief may turn some people away. Otherwise crank it up, wake the kids, scare the dog and see if you can get to Jerico.

Nothing really stands out to me so far on this. Have one at the Bowling Alley up the street so there will be a few more tries to up this score.

Pretty cool game, I love the way the ball gets attracted to the magnet and swirls around so unpredictable.

Just added to the collection. Im glad they decided to make this when they did and not after IM3 when they destroyed one of IM greatest villains The Mandarin into a bafoon.The game is fast as hell.Almost too fast for my taste.The theme is awesome .The shots are fun and the sound package is amazing.Im going to add a shaker and prem speakers to really make it rock.I just wish it had a better light show at the ending attract mode.

Not horrible, but doesn't really draw me in. Could've been a lot better. It seems like they just took a pinball machine and added the Iron Man theme rather than designed a pinball machine around the Iron Man theme.

Iron Man is another good machine from Stern. Cabinet and backglass match the theme well. Playfield is nice apart from those thin plastic targets that cheapify it for me. Good lighting some cool toys. Sounds from the movie are cool. The magnet traps the ball well, and dropped it in a decent place most of the time. Cool effect for pinball machines still. Had a lot of fun on Iron Man. If you like the movie or the character, it goes a long way.

Doesn't feel all that Iron Man like to me. I enjoyed it, but felt all I was trying to do was hit this big thing in the middle. Fun for a few spins but I feel this would get boring,

iron man was a great movie, and to follow it up stern made a great pin right along side it. iron man is very challenging, but fun at the same time. while two of the modes have multi ball, its not a game just about multi ball. theres allot of strategy in scoring well on iron man. getting to wizard mode is not an easy task. code is great on this one and lyman shows some of his best in this one
