Personally, I think you can't go wrong either way. BDK gets a bad rap sometimes because a lot of people haven't played it with the 2.94 software, which came out well after the machine was released and on location. It does improve the game quite a bit. To me, BDK plays like LOTR lite, and I prefer the BDK theme. I've played quite a few games on X-Men Pro and would actually love to add it to my game room. Like others have stated, there's a lot going on with shots and modes.
