Love the VS threads so here we go...
Indy500 or Congo ? To me both are fast,fun, lots of flow and have limited production numbers.I own both but which would you rather own and why?
I’m partial to Indy. Congo really gets old for me every game feels the same, same order, same progress, and the dumb monkey game is one of the stupidest things in pinball history. Too many dumb video modes too.
Indy mixes it up so every game won’t feel identical. Great speed and flow.
I like Congo. Interesting layout, fun gameplay. Not incredibly deep, but can be fun with multiplayer sessions. A little bit of an odd duck, but that's part of its charm. I tend to gravitate towards games that are slightly odd or unusual in some way. But, that's also sometimes why those types of games didn't generally have commercial success.
I like classic/muscle cars, but most car themes just don't resonate with me too much. Most of them boil down to shifting gears, beating the clock, and/or locking things up for multiball. Although with Indy500, you have the spinning car gimmick. I've only had a handful of plays on Indy500's, but it didn't really grab me like other titles do.
I think I pretty much feel the same way. Although I've only have had Indy for maybe a month. Congo a few years now. Love playing catch with Amy but also love the right ramp shot and making the car spin on Indy! Interesting to see peoples opinions.
I love Congo. Modes are unique and fun. Layout is one of the best and nothing beats volcano shot. Tons to do and just a fun quirku pin. That said, I sold mine and don't miss it. It's a fairly easy game and once you learn strategies it's repetitive. I500 is better playing pin imo. Lots of action, mb's, and something always to shoot for. I agree with forceflow in that I love cars but theme feels week on Indy for some reason. Not sure where prices are at but pretty sure you can get i500 much cheaper than congo.
