I can't really comment on Hit the Deck, have not played it. From a value perspective, I think Big Hit is seriously under valued. Since it is a center shooter, many will avoid it. Case in point, a decent one just posted on CL in Woster, Ma (see Chris' post on the CL thread) for $600 which is a very good price for a late run wedgehead that is loaded with features (just look under the play field!). I owned one and was surprised at how fun it was.(sold to make room for other projects). Big 5" bell announces runs, and the on play field special shot is rewarding when executed properly. Easy to cradle the ball, and straight forward rules, make it great for casual players. It may be too easy for a die hard player. That being said, I would also put C-37 in that category, just not challenging enough. Great art package, but over valued price-wise IMO. If money is no concern, perhaps HtD, is a winner? Personally, I really don't care for rollover lane games, but seems like lots of folks are fond of this one.
