Stern is the last companies of its kind that is still actively producing pinball
machines. Lord of the Rings (LOTR) has been one of Stern's most popular
games making several production runs since its first release in 2003. All
three LOTR movies are represented in the game with authentic speech, sound and
music. Not since
Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure has a pinball company
had access to a movie while designing a game. LOTR had one of pinball's most
creative and successful designers of all time,
George Gomez. George created a fast
playfield layout with center ring that catches and holds pinball's during play. The game artwork is bright, rich and faithful to the story line and
immediately draws the player in. Running underneath it all is a deep
rule set that is extremely challenging. Even if the average pin enthusiast
isn't an incredibly huge fan of the franchise, there is no denying that LOTR is
a fun and exciting game to experience. This is Stern's best pinball game
in my opinion.
A few quick highlights on the playfield are moving Balrog with built-in
flashlamp, blocks center ramp at times. Tower that "collapses" on
certain scoring features. Mini-playfield that encourages nudging.
