Love me some TRON. This is a really fun game with a great presentation. While the artwork itself is mostly stills from the movie, I don't really have any complaints about it and really enjoy the aesthetics overall. The neon-esque light around the ramps is such an incredible touch, and the sound that accompanies all the little nuances in the game is all just so good. Music of course is incredible and uses a lot of Daft Punk tracks from the film.

This is one of the few John Borg games that I really love. In my LOTR review I complained a bit how George Gomez reused the same layout a bunch of times--Borg is no different. There are a couple games of his that I love so well that I can forgive that copy-paste stuff: Rush, and TRON. But, there's no denying it's strongly similar to several other tables and that does keep me from feeling really engaged with the game. TRON thankfully has so much else going for it that I don't mind.

While only a couple elements really borrow effectively from the film (Disc War Multiball and Light Cycle Multiball), the presentation really is the star here.

-A fun shooter. Getting into a flow state in this game feels like absolute magic.
-Incredible light show and sounds, really faithful to the source material
-The several different multiballs all feel unique and fun
-Tough enough (inherently) that even a really fair-playing TRON is still a serious workout

-The 'End of Line' jackpots break the game. There's basically no reason to progress through other aspects of the game in a competition setting if you can reliably make the loop-to-side ramp-to-scoop shot.
-Some elements feel unused/underutilized, such as the pop bumpers. Their appearance feels like they just ticked a box--they really don't have a use. You could have put the scoop elsewhere and dropped another ramp in their place and been able to utilize that space for something.
-It's not very deep. It would be really hard to want to fork over the money they're asking for these now, knowing that you're not getting something with immense replay value save for its difficulty and presentation.
-It is ungodly expensive, and doesn't stack up to the others in that $10K+ realm in my opinion. (You can't honestly say you'd rather have a TRON than a Medieval Madness or a Lord of the Rings, can you?)
-Location to location, these vary hugely. Recently, I played two decked-out Pro models within an hour of each other in two different arcades. First one destroyed me--couldn't make anything happen on it. Second one I mashed into oblivion without really trying. Every TRON I've played has been like this.

Would I ever own one? Maybe if one crossed my path for half their going rate, knowing I could mess with it and sell it for a nice profit when it inevitably drove me insane. Would I play one on location? Truly; every chance I get.

I’ve owned it twice so that says something but each time sold it as it becomes more of the same shot after shot. I’d probably own it again but the value has been inflated.

Immersive, fun, fast, and exciting to play. I've always liked the theme and I'm very happy that they successfully integrated all the best parts of the movie. The game is great out of the box but when you add a shaker, hook it to a subwoofer, add the Tron arcade with the active monitor screen, and the interactive undercab lighting, it totally blows you away! It is challenging because it's so fast and has some tight shots, but it is one of the best games in my opinion.

I have mixed feelings on Tron:Legacy. The play-field lightening for the time was quite intriguing and makes for great dark room playing experience. Shoots well overall with nice speed flow, but the back-glass and overall artwork feels like a phone-in to the point where I was left feeling "why should I play if the makers couldn't be bothered"?

It's not my intention to be overly harsh, rather to say that there was a lot of potential in the theme that felt squandered. While playing well overall, it has yet to transcend into a must play for me when I go to the arcade. I hope they bring this one back on newer HW platform and really make it shine.

Amazing theme for pinball. Sound & music the best i've seen. With the lighted ramps its a beauty too. The game is fast and vicius.

Probably worthy of a vault edition imo.

Found this pin on accident while staying at Disney Pop Music. It was in their arcade. Each night, once the wife and kids fell asleep, I went to the arcade and played this. I felt like some of the modes were kind of vanilla, but the colors, the theme, the lights all popped. I loved it. I never considered myself a big Tron fan, but I thought about this game all day. Lots of fun. I want to go find it again!

I dont really understand the fervent love for this game. It does shoot great and is a mega flow fest but that’s not necessarily what I look for in a pin as I’m more of a trap and shoot player. Is it the old arcade nostalgia that keeps this game selling over $10k? The Disney fandom? The limited production numbers? I don’t know. The theme may just not be for me. I would own one, I’d put one on location but not for these prices. To me…it’s a $6k game.

Have rated per mine which has the mods, including the lighting for the ramps

Oh, THIS GAME! In my opinion THE best soundtrack/music to theme integration ever. Just so immersive and really makes you feel like you're a part of the scene. The lights and sound effects are top notch and it gives you that "one more game" feel. I loved this pin the hour I got to play it and I'll surely play it again every chance I get.

Pretty decent game. Lots of variety in the rules.

one of my fav pins , keeps me coming back, love love love the crazy sounds and lighting this little game makes! makes me smile every time as it beats me . Pinduino 2.0 is a must on this. UV strip adds nice wild lighting effect also, recommend volume @41 and 10 inch Velodyne Sub for best effect.

Phenomenal game! I have the Pro with lit ramps and a few mods, and combined with the amazing soundtrack the theming is superb. Gameplay is a nice balance as well. The disc spinner makes it a different game every time, I love the spin the ball gets which emulates the disc games. Shots are a mix of easy and difficult which is good, and the game is somewhat difficult but never unfair (except when the disc shoots your ball directly to the outlane with no time to nudge lol).

The ramp lights make this table. Premium is so much better.

Great shooting game with superb third flipper shot- very fast. I played the pro a lot and found it a bit dark in some areas of the pf. Sounds and music are excellent and fit the theme. I love the dmd animations for light cycle multiball and its challenging to get through the game. The LE is the way to go with the lit ramps- really makes the game standout. Spinner can be brutal

Very few games from this era ooze cool and nail their theme to the extent this one does. I love it and hope to own one in the future. Knocked some marks off for lighting as the ramp lighting on the LE is superior but what a game!

Which topic can be better put into a pinball machine
integrate as TRON, sound, work of art are a crazy game very hard but very cool makes a player devinitively better the only thing to complain about is the game can be repetitive but the fun remains

Not that excited about playing this pin. Needs more in the playfield for me.

This game is interesting, but it's not as intuitive to pick up the rules as other games I have played.

I love the theme but the game is a sleeper.

This one is near the top of my list. I always play it on location.

Not sure how this one is rated so high. I found the shots unsatisfying and a bit clunky. Also don't like the scoop on the right as it has an unfinished look to it (even though I like the integration as part of the arcade machine from a theme perspective).

Was a little disappointed in this pin. Hard game in my opinion and the code didn't seem that deep. Just wasn't that fun compared to many other pins out there.

A top 5 game for me.

The Tron's I've played have been fast, challenging, and damn fun. I'm a sucker for a good Sci-fi theme. The ruleset is deep and getting to the multi layer Wizard mode is VERY difficult. The Gem shot is one of the more difficult shots in Pinball.

The one major downside i've seen on a lot of on location Tron machines is the standup guarding the Quora shot. It will sometimes be leaning into the Quora lane. In some cases this can make shooting Quora nearly impossible.
