This is a strange one for me. It hits all the right buttons. Open layout, unique artwork, interesting lighting, good sound track. But for some reason, as a whole I get bored and walk away after a game or two.

Having owned this game for a year I feel I can finally rate it! Fast and can be brutal for first time owners!! Took me ages to get better at this game from a scoring prospective. Finally got a few tips on shots to hit and how to collect certain things and took my game to a whole new level!

Honestly the theme, design, layout and sound are all a big hit to me. Really hits that nostalgia part of me!!

That Gem shot is about the only thing in the game that is really a fluke shot and quite annoying.

Ramps are great, Quorra shot is excellent as is the shots through the pops!

NB: Like most, I have a tricked out Pro with Eli ramps hence the high scores in this area. I did not score it based on not having these upgrades.

Tron is a unique reverse layout unlike any other game. It falls into the category of a simple game that is easy to understand, but difficult to Master. The sound is superb and this game needs to be played at home to truly understand its how good it is. Tron is the type of game that can last a long time in even a small collection.

I've played this about 10 times now and still struggle to WANT to play it again. I love the music but struggle with the spinning saucer toy. It's so... boring. Add to that, the movie was a let down. I would have preferred a combo box with references to the original. It plays well, has decent flow. Unfortunately, I don't like playing it.

The music is what will pull you into this title and the challenges and gameplay is what will keep you coming back for more. I'm a sucker for the movie soundtrack and love it on this pin. I love the Tron disc and how it fires the balls out. Upgrading the ramps with neon lighting effects is a must. The one disappointing part I find is the playfield artwork. It seems very lacking to me. Other than that I can see how this is a keeper.

The art itself on the game is not the best but the lights on the ramps are gorgeous. The rules are decent but the flow and shots are great. Shots in this game are all satisfying to hit.

Tron is a great game with good rules but it just doesn't look right when the game doesn't have the light up ramps.

Not seeing the love for this game. Ok if it's full of mods I guess. Playfield and cab artwork is typical of old stern. Very poor.

Fast. Challenging. One of the best theme to table I’ve seen. Would be difficult to part with. Amazing game.

Recently picked a beautiful HUO heavily modded pro. As I play it more, I like it more. At first, I wasn't sure about Tron. I'm not impressed with the PF art. This pin absolutley needs LEDs and the Eli ramp lights. However, the more you play, the more it grows on you. I had been told that Tron is easy to understand, hard to master. I think that's right on.
I love the left ramp and the upper flipper shot into the ramp that brings it back to the left flipper. It definitely has that one more game feeling.

I like the Tron theme, it is a "different" playfield layout (which I applaud), the lighting is good (available mods make it pop). I like the LE better though. I would not likely own one, but would play it every time at a location.

Tron is a really fun game, not that deep, but really fun.
and it looks amazing with the ramp light mod.

Love shooting these ramps over and over because of its speed.

My top 2 stern machines ever made are Tron and Lord of the rings. Tron is a beautifull looking machine and has great sounds. Love it. Took me several years to find one that was for trade and got it done. Will never sell it. These classic sterns are just amazing machines.

This is TRON Legacy lite. It lacks the beautiful neon ramps in the LE version, something I just don't understand with Stern - why make two different tables of the same game? It's off-putting. First, it creates confusion with casual gamers who hear how great a game is through word-of-mouth. The lit ramps seem minor...but it's not minor. The ramps make this game. As does the moving Recognizer and shaker motor. Imagine if "The Twilight Zone" had a PRO version and lacked the upper playfield where you battle The Power and the gumball machine and Powerball were missing. Having the very same game lacking crucial features is pointless and aggravating. Not to say the PRO version is bad. It's still a great game but I don't get the logic from Stern.

I really wanted to like this pin. I love the movie and Tron in general. I know this pin is highly rated but I just didn't get it. Didn't seem fun at all at the two locations I played over and over. Beautiful though and love the music.

Had the good fortune to pick up a heavily modded pro, so my review is based on all that good stuff. With a custom soundtrack rom, chrome hardware, and ramp lighting upgrades this is pretty hard to beat... this game makes me feel like I'm seeing Daft Punk at Twilo in the late 90's. If that sounds appealing to you then by all means go for it! I couldn't be happier and this will certainly join my privileged ranks of the "bolted to the floor" club.

Tron is fast, simple and lots of fun. Getting to SOS is kind of easy after you're used to it in a home environment, but portal is tough. Made it twice and finished times.

Play field art could be better, but since they're drawings anyway it's not bad. Bumper caps need help.

Need to add a lot to make this the "cooler" version of the game.

Arcade mod, light cycles, Eli ramps, shaker, cliffy, clear disc, rubbers, pinbits protectors. It's a lot.

It's the coolest looking game but prices are out of control for what it is.

A great game that looks and plays wonderfully.
The shots are rewarding and the modes are interesting. The music is just great as is the lighting.
I really enjoy the way you can get the game flowing from shot to shot.

The neon lights on the ramps pulled me in, but the weak gameplay couldn't hold me for long. The right flipper is almost useless, just good for a ramp and the loop shots on the upper left PF. The arcade scoop was placed about as well as a scoop can be, and the Disc multiball magna hole dead center is a neat shot. However, aside from a multitude of fairly easy to access multiballs, the game sort feels like it is missing something on the PF. On the one hand, the shots are fairly clean, but the TRON drops on the left are accidental shots and the craziness in the upper right PF reminds me of Tommy (not a good thing).

A decent game that feels just right on location but not in a collection.
