Played at Pinfest 2023.

It’s definitely a good pin for the ‘phone-in artwork’ Stern era. Lots of flow, which is in keeping with the theme for the game, but nothing really standout. My general feeling was ‘okay’.

Possibly a lower rating than it deserves because I genuinely don’t know what all the fuss is about.

Special theme that was done very well at the time. It still holds a place near the top. Lacks depth compared to the new games but it is a great challenge for most players.

The pin becomes a lot better when you are a fan of the film. Besides that its just a great shooter that isnt too complex compared to today's standards, yet its still tons of fun. The game is perfect when having friends over that aren't your everyday pinball player, they can walk away from this game feeling like even they actually achieved something. Truly a unique pin!

This is an awesome game. I'd love to own one! I play this every time I go to Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas. Beautiful artwork, great toys, excellent music, and fun gameplay. Really enjoy this one!

Fun game. Playfield lighting is a bit dark on this one. Definitely a shooters game as there are a lot of target to aim for. Ramps and loops flow nicely into each other.

Honestly, not too find of this game. Seems like a drain monster...maybe the machine wasn't set up well, but I have tried it several times on location and it seems I am off the machine in 2 minutes each time.

Its Tron. It literally the most perfect Arcade game and showpiece. Current prices is WAY TOO HIGH. You need the premium. That Tron arcade mod is essential too. Daft Punk music absolutely makes it. Its just plain fun, in my opinion this is the perfect pinball machine.

Owned the pro and LE. My le is heavily moded. A completely different game. The rgb lights abs 3D back box a must. The tron arcade oled screen mod a must. Awesome pinball! So glad I was able to find.

Much like the arcade game, the theme is awesome but the gameplay is not so great. I could not find a rhythm or flow, and felt like the game was battling me. Not my cup of tea but I appreciate it for what it is.

This should be top 5 Pin's currently.

Beautiful game with one of the best soundtracks ever. They made so few of the LEs...they are very hard to find. I love the Tron theme, but this game really suffers from needing to be dialed in properly. When it is set up well, it's smooth like butter. When it needs tweaking, it can be incredibly clunky.

This is one of the few modern day Stern titles I actually like. Usually the Stern games are kind of on the easy side and I find myself getting bored before my game is over. I have walked away from many Stern titles after matching or getting a free replay. That is not the case with Tron. The rules, flow and theme seem to work good in this title.

I had never seen this game before Pinfest and I ended up playing it over and over again several times because somehow plenty of people overlooked it. This game is absolutely stunning. I think the playfield and ramp lighting are absolutely gorgeous. There are plenty of shots and this game just feels like it should in every way. I immediately have knocked off some of the other games I am looking for with priority to hopefully adding this to my collection at some point soon. I never, ever expected it, but this game is one of those that just pushes all of the right buttons, and it blew me away like few others have.

Only thing better than a modded Tron Pro, this one. Great game!

Like the theme integration, but simply can’t get into the layout.

What's not to like about Tron. It's absolutely beautiful, sounds amazing, and has really great flow. Tron probably holds the title of best looking arcade game AND pinball game of all time.

From is a blast of flow to play. Love the early and often multi balls

This game is my absolute favourite example of theme integration. Plays as smooth as butter with one of my all time favourite playfield layouts, which combines fun ramps with some trickier lanes such as Gem and Quorra. Mulitballs are intense, audio package is second to none and the recogniser/disc shot is awesome. I find all the callouts super nostalgic as this game was in a local arcade for a few years in a popular holiday spot for me when I was a little younger. You can see why Stern kept bringing this one back, and I pray they do so once more! The pinball machine is better than the film I'd argue. My only gripe is the ruleset doesn't necessarily lend itself to huge lastability...I can't say I've completed portal but I've got so close on a number of occasions that I wonder if the novelty may wear off when owned. But I adore this game, and nothing will change that.

I adore this game. First saw it at Disneyland but never got to play it. Finally did just last year and it didn't disappoint. It's easy to play for novices and will challenge experts. While the playfield is just decent (Stern has a problem with this sometimes), everything else is gorgeous. The LE version features beautiful lit ramps which mimic the the "Light Cycle" effect from the film, a moving Recognizer and a cool "rumble" motor that really immerses you in the game. The audio is also absolutely stunning with re-worked Daft Punk tunes from the film and crystal-clear dialogue and sound effects from the film. The call-outs, while not entirely memorable, work well and I love the ball drain sequence with the ramps seemingly "dancing" with light in darkness while the DMD tallies your score. One of the ten best tables I've ever played, easily. My only gripe is that the game isn't very deep and once can conquer it fairly quickly. Besides that, this game is a masterpiece.

Loved this Pin! Probably responsible for my pin addiction. Loved the spinning floor in Rinzler battle. The English it puts on the ball make this game challenging and unpredictable! Well laid out playfield and great theme put it in my top 10 Pins!

Great pin, but overrated, and especially overpriced.

the good: the theme, lighting, and sounds are amazing. the neon strip is so uncommon and gorgeous! music is gripping, and sounds are straight on point. art and backglass are great.

the bad: not that fun after a dozen games. the shots become repetitive and the ejector at the front is too big a factor in regular play. the ramps are misplaced and one of them is almost impossible to hit. the rules are difficult to ascertain, preventing casual play. sometimes the speed of the game is too much, resulting in very short games, and random shooting just to survive. this game would have been better with better playfield design on the shooting end of things.

Undoubtedly one of the worst pinball machines ever produced, tedious design, penile music and unsatisfying gameplay

I like the Tron theme, it is a "different" playfield layout (which I applaud), the lighting is good (available mods make it better). The LE "seems" better than the Pro though. I would own one of these if I found a really great deal on one, but it's not on my wish list. I would definitely play a few games if one was at a location that I visit.

Tron is one killer fast game. I do prefer a modded pro to LE only because of the stand up targets on the pro.
