I can not decide between these 3 and possibly the new Jurassic Park but figured I can wait on JP for gameplay reviews. Based on my current collection I'm leaning towards Batman 66.

I’d go with Dialed In if you don’t mind the theme. Batman is a great pin but clunky. It’s all about the code than the shots...in my opinion.

Don't mind the theme at all, I just thought maybe it was too similar to Wonka. The depth of Batman is what's drawing me in.

I’d wait until you can actually put some time on each pin. You won’t know exactly what you like until you gets hands on

I have no problem buying blind. I've played DI and Batman before the latest code.

Batman 66 but I would wait to play Jurassic Park.

DI. So much going on. The mini wiz modes are awesome. I reached Armageddon the other day and my hands got sweaty. It was intense. Just what pinball should be.

My wife doesn't want me to buy any more pins (or cars or guitars, either). So I really have to want a pin to be willing to fight that battle. Batman 66 is the only pin out now that tempts me to incur her wrath, so for me the choice would be Batman 66.
But for you I'd choose whichever game you like the most.

My wife wants me to sell a pin before getting a new one. I keep telling her it could take months to sell one so I'll just buy it now and the other one will sell eventually.

Yes, then just forget about selling the other one! Vote here for Dialed In, it's modern pinball at its best.

lol, that's how we passed her first limit of 4 machines...

B66 or JP, there’s not even a debate about this

Dialed In bores me to death every time I play it and I’ve tried it a lot!

No its not but is the best offering from JJP to date for me. I would go BM66.

I've played all three and I really like Oktoberfest out of those three. I'm probably in the minority but I like the original layout, mechs and festival/carnival atmosphere. It just screams fun... and beer. I really haven't played an updated code on BM66 so I would enjoy getting back on that pin.

U should is really pretty great now. DI is no slouch, the theme kills it for me but damn its fun

#17 1 year ago

DI gets my vote. I want to love BM66 but having a hard time with its clunkyness at least the machines that I’ve played. Might be they’re not set up well or maybe I just suck at pinball.

Which pin you looking to move Jake?

I've got my IMDN on craigslist now, but thought about putting my MBr, ACDC Pro and DP Pro on and just seeing which goes first.

What if you put them all up and get offers on all four? Do you sell all four and buy DI, BM66, Oktoberfest and the new Jurassic Park?

That's an option, although it'd be tough to let go of MBr and DP at this time, such great games.

#22 1 year ago

You can never go wrong with Lyman on code. And it's becoming apparent that you can't go wrong with Elwin on design.

#23 1 year ago

Batman 66 is the winner, I'll probably end up getting DI after selling DP or ACDC eventually.

Ordered Batman 66 Catwoman edition plus put a deposit on Jurassic Park Premium.

#1 Batman 66 is clunky but immersive and the code great, no one knows about JP but for me I’ll put at two because I’ve had a Dialed In ( bought NIB , had for 16 months) and once you get over the great layout the game doesn’t have the immersion that makes you want to play it. I don’t miss it at all and my teenage daughters / nephews hated it and preferred any of my other pins. Oktoberfest plays well also but the overall AV package seems very amateurish and at the current price point is unacceptable. That’s probably why you see its used prices dropping so quickly. $6,300 and not selling.

Exactly my experience. And I didn’t even have an aversion to the theme like some.

Batman 66 all the way. No comparison.

Good call. You will be happy.
