I have been playing BDK for ten years. I like it! Especially since I put the movies's musics. I like the layout, the crane who is to me the best toy in pinball. The three multiballs are very good so. The multipliers is a good thing to the strategy. My level is average. I only passed the final once. I have in my wishlist the Bat 66. But I wouldn't want to be disappointed. Then I would like to know your opinion?

Following ... I had dark knight for years and really enjoy it been be thinking about bat66 but don’t think I want two bat man pins. Haven’t played bat66 to vote in poll.

They're basically the same layout. (The fact that BM66 has multiple targets on the turntable doesn't really change anything.) The left orbit can be clunky on both, rejects from the scoop on both if you do make the left orbit too smoothly, very long ball times, etc. etc.

What does make all of the difference are the minor villain modes in BM66, which not only have different shots associated with each of them they also give different bonuses which adds a layer of strategy which just isn't in BDK.

The 4 major Villains also have different shots, levels and strategies - rather than just awarding a MB.

There is no Lucius (by far the biggest drag/blocker in ANY game getting to wizard mode)

The gadget action button is also a great addition.

The video clips and sound call outs are far superior.

The fact that you can up to 4 different modes running at once, and switch between screens and music by pressing the action button is impressive.

It is simply a far more in depth, integrated game and should be a no brainer to upgrade from BDK to BM66.

Thank's to your answer. The same layout, it's good! A game with more strategy! HUMMM...I like it! I haven't played this game, but I have seen videos. It' seem's to me a deep rules as I like them. You say:"update BDK to BM66 makes sense" then I will look this game.

There are lot of risk/reward choices in Batman '66. It's fun to play for completion, it's fun to play for score, it's fun to play for both.

I owned a bdk and really enjoyed it. I sold it to fund a NIB bm66 when they were announced. After having bm66 for a few months I regretted the switch.

have you played with Lyman's new code?

Not even in the same ballpark. Layouts are similar with the edge to B66, but B66 is a Lyman code masterpiece.

To me it comes down to the theme and how you can relate to the theme. I guess I am younger because I did not grow up watching BM66(I was a decade late). I really have zero interest in BM66 because of the theme and when I did play one I did not care for the rotisserie. If you are older than 45-BM66 if you are younger than 45-BDK? It really does help when you can connect with a theme, to me Batman Dark Knight is in my top 5 favorite movies(that goes a long way with connection). Both games are fun and the crane is the best toy in all of pinball imo(shaker motor is a must).

I'm 52. And like you, I haven't seen BM66 TV. At first, I prefer BDK to Christopher Nolan (a very good Batman). However, because I appreciate this layout. I am informed about this tv series and I like his quirky humor, the colors and music of the 60s. With this approach, the theme no longer becomes an obstacle for me.

The theme integration on B66 is so well done. I have no connection to the B66 shows - heck, I even thought the theme was stupid when it was announced - but it's really well done.

If I'm sitting down to watch TV, it's BDK all the way.

Now, I have played both a lot. these games are very different.
The layout are good on both. I like the two ramps on BM66, and I like the lock on BDK and the rocking ramp.
BDK have two multipliers. It was new at the time!
BM66 have Five or six multipliers!!!It's great to the strategy!!!
Only four missions(the same) on BDK. I no longer count them on BM66!!!
Three multiballs on BDK that can be played in the same time. Very fun.
There are a lot of multiballs on BM66. But you can't combine them.
BDK is a fun game to play with a goal: The final.
BM66 is more strategy game. There is no final. Just a strategy to move forward and take points.
I don't have a real preference. They do not have the same technology.
Both are very good game!
