I would really appreciate some input, here. I am considering these two NIB pins (or I could possibly put an additional $1500 towards a JJPOTC Standard, but am a little hesitant). I have only played a couple of games on BM66 and a couple on DP Pro, and none on recent code. I keep reading how far each of these games has come since release, and am wondering which one you would pick. The themes are about even to me. Thanks.

Owned both. Still own DP. BOOM!

Deadpool does seem like the smoother shooting pin. Is that the consensus?
How do the depth of rules compare?

#4 1 year ago

Never seen any of the Deadpool movies. DPLE is currently a favorite in my collection.

#5 1 year ago

Batman is fantastic. It is smooth as you figure out how to play it, and the code is very deep, with many ways to approach it. Deadpool is fun too, but doesn’t keep me coming back.

#6 1 year ago

You need both.

Deadpool is based off of the comics, not the movie. Voiceovers by Nolan North who also did the Deadpool video game and is great! Batman 66 is very nostalgic. I grew up in the 80’s but literally watched re-runs every night, so it gets me in the feels. Love both games and BM66 is joining DP Prem next week. Can’t go wrong with either. Both have great artwork, really good theme integration, and great code where they stand today. Only played BM66 on location (at least 100+ times) and can’t wait to have it at home. DP gets played daily, so very tough choice. Don’t really see either for sale used, so that seems to be a good sign as well that both are keepers...

Basically, what fuseholder said.

#9 1 year ago

Both are great. Very tough decision. Slight edge to Deadpool because of the unique shots. Fun game to shoot. Code depth win goes to Batman 66. It's a little clunky and catwoman plays a little slow but everything else about the game and code to me is fantastic.

#10 1 year ago

I like them both, but Batman ‘66 is better
In fact, IMO it’s Sterns best ever pinball
BTW, why is Deadpool Premium and Deadpool LE rated independently on the top 100?
I thought Premiums/LEs get grouped together

#11 1 year ago

BM is deeper but DP shoots better and is more fun. Sold my BM to get DP and months later I’m still super happy and don’t really miss it.

But that’s just me... lots of people swear by BM and I did it enjoy while I had it. Just got tired of rage quitting every time I couldn’t pull off the big points minor villain mode stacks.

#12 1 year ago

For me I vote Batman 66.

#13 1 year ago

I have BM and getting a DP Pro. I went back and forth on Prem or Pro..... I think they are both great games and look forward to having them both in my collection.

#14 1 year ago

B66LE & DPLE owner here,I have mine set up side by side! 2 killer pins!

#15 1 year ago

I really like BM66. Theme has a lot to do with that but it is a lot of fun. Layout is a bit clunky so that could be a turnoff. I cannot get into DP probably because not a fan of that character. Fans for DP are growing so best to play both games more to see what you like.

#16 1 year ago

DP pro earns like a mother!
I really wonder what BM66 would do...

I agree 100%. Just replaced B66 with POTC LE for this very reason - I’d keep starting games over and over until I managed the Bookworm/Freeze combo on ball one... then I’d normally screw up the rest of the game once I had it! There’s countless ways to play the game but that stack eclipses them all if you’re going for points.

#20 1 year ago

Thanks for all the comments. Great to hear good things about both games. Y’all have me considering buying a BM66 and a DP Pro, and selling TNA.

#21 1 year ago

I’ve bought two new games at the same time and feel like I can’t give either the attention it needs. Pick one and then get the other down the line!

#22 1 year ago

I almost slept under BM66 last night.
Having too much fun

This 100%!

#24 1 year ago

I would say this, if you like a deep and challenging game go with Batman. If you're more casual player, then Deadpool. Either is a great choice.

#25 1 year ago

Played both and owned one of them being Batman 66 and it’s not even close here Deadpool is way better in every way

That's exactly what you need to do. No question

I had TNA before I got B66, and I still have TNA after selling B66. Just saying.

One is coded by Lyman

#29 1 year ago

I own and really enjoy both games.
At this point, I prefer the depth & code of BM66 and find it can be strategically played a few different ways.
DP has to be set up near perfect IMO to have the Katana ramp flow seamlessly. I love the left orbit to lifting ramp- very smooth; and the rules have come a long ways from initial launch.
For theme, as always, it comes down to personal choice. I dig both and think they’re each enjoyable in their own right.
I would play both and start with the one which immediately resonates with you.

#30 1 year ago

Both!

Is DP prem much better than the pro?

#32 1 year ago

Deadpool LE has been my favorite game since I purchased it and I’ve bought JJP POTC and a White Water since then. Just added a Batman 66 LE today, I hope it lives up to DP.

#33 1 year ago

The poll is favoring Batman, but there definitely seem to be more compelling arguments in the comments for Deadpool. It looks like I can’t go wrong with either, but I’m going to give the nod to Batman.
Hopefully I can bring myself to sell a pin and get in the market for DP later this summer. Thanks, all.

This kid destroys the game and no mr freeze was seen that day. You can play bot many ways with success.

I’m seriously in this same boat right now. I’ve only played DP pro but would get a Prem. It this or a cat woman edition and I can’t pull the trigger on either yet. Jurassic Park is a distant 3rd as well.

Deadpool all the way not even close and Jurassic Park is ok but not as good as Deadpool

#37 5 months ago

Own both, wouldn't give up either. BM66 is more straight forward and plays like a '90s machine, albeit with video clips and more modes. Deadpool is definitely more unique with the katana ball lock and the tricky shot that gets you there, the disco loop that leads to a right flipper return on the Prem/LE, and the Deadpool bash toy/drop targets front and center. Gun to my head I'd pick Deadpool, but it's very close.

50/50. U can't go wrong

You're wrong - Jurassic Park PreLe > B66 >>> DP .

Disclaimer: I’ve owned DP Pre for a couple of months now and I’m not getting it. Solid, but it’s just not wowing me. What am I missing?

I think the thing I love about the game is the team ups, the game makes you shoot the entire playfield (I absolutely love that), the game makes you feel like you’re fighting mystic, sabretooth and juggernaut. Mech suit multiball is fun. It’s just fun to me. I need to get some time on JP2 with a working right flipper but I love me some DP. Oh and disco multiball is cool too

To each their own but I really just think jp is just missing something to it; I just can get into it for some reason

Nib catwoman versions are chipping art off playfields.

Of course. It’s all 100% subjective.
