X-Men Pro playfield

The more affordable X-Men Pro pinball game is no less challenging than the LE version. It includes two molded speed ramps, custom-molded Wolverine and Magneto figurines, a spinning Cyclops target, and a unique up-post ball lock positioned under Magneto.
Like any classic X-Men adventure, the basic game idea on any of the machines is to team-up the X-Men and fight Magneto and his Brotherhood of Mutants.

X-Men LE playfield

Of course, if you do have the extra money to throw at the Limited Edition version of the game, you won't be disappointed. Aside from the fancier mirror-finish backglass graphics and extra touches to the cabinet design, you also get quite a few enhancements to the gameplay.
The coolest of these playfield enhancements is a motorized "Ice Slide" ramp that transports the ball from the right side to the left.
