looking to pick up my third pin. if both pins were of same quality with the dirty harry being slightly more and a little over budget which would u pick ? i have oppurtunity to pick one of these up before pinfest. even though these pins r not my first choices they r on my "list" and in my price range 2000. my third option is to see what i can find pinfest keeping in mind i only have 2 g. thanks 4 any and all advice. (except the grammer police)

Dirty Harry. But, with those 2 choices at 2k, I'd probably hold on to my money and wait for pinfest.

Dirty Fear.

No hesitation, Dirty Harry. Make a poll.

DH, classy, funny, great music, great ruleset..awesome easter eggs...midnight madness and the list goes on !

F-No Fear !

no fear has no pop bumpers, more flow i'd say. dh is just super badass period!

I traded my NF+$ for an IM last year, and I just got a DH. Both games have great flow, but very tight shots. They'll both make you a better player. The artwork is better on No Fear, but there's more to do on DH. Lighting is way too dim on DH until you add spotlights to the slings (not hard to do). DH also has brutal outlanes and no kickback. It fits the theme: pay attention or you'll end up dead.

I don't miss NF, but I definitely enjoyed it. Both are great pins to own for 2-4 years and then move on.

Dh, great game.

Dirty Harry takes this one. No Fear is fast and fun, however DH has lastability! Go with DH.

I'd hold out.

With such a big event that you are planning on attending coming soon I would wait. Between the two I would go with Dirty Harry, well worth the extra money.

I have both, and DH is a pretty easy choice. NF can first off, be a very polarizing game....it's not for everyone. Also, it doesn't quite seem to be the everyday player that DH IMO.

Owned both, Dirty harry by a mile on play alone. (even though I'm partial to auto/ racing themed pins).

No Fear is a great 1 game a week type game...

Hi TP,

I haven't own either but have played both. Neither theme excites me too much, but I really enjoyed the gameplay on No Fear. DH seemed pretty clunky to me. NF has a talking skull and that great upper-flipper shot which is challenging, lightning fast, and fun to attempt.

Just to add a non-pinhead opinion, I had my wife play it. Honestly, I thought the theme would totally turn her off to it, but she really enjoyed that upper-flipper shot and wanted to go back for more! (Totally surprised me.)

Good luck with the decision making,

NF would have been a keeper for me if not for the repetitive music and obnoxious Steve Ritchie devil voice.

Have owned DH for a couple years but its on the chopping block. Great game just switching things up.

Quoted from RyanClaytor:

That suprises me a lot too. NF is way more brutal that DH, and my GF is the other way around

Ramp shots are challenging on DH for sure. They are pitched up something fierce.

Owned both, still have DH. DH is a bit more stop and go but also has some flowing shots. The modes on DH are good fun. NF is all flow, and is a blast for a while, but I tired of it faster than most games.
