Like the title says. I'm in the market for a HUO game. I have played both games on location and each time I leave I want to play another game on each
Having a hard time deciding which to get for my home collection. I'll list the games I currently have.

Wizard of Oz
Twilight Zone
Batman Forever
Game of Thrones Premium
Star Wars Data East
Roadshow

Just curious of everyones overall opinions for home use machine.

I own Iron Maiden, and have played BK3 at a couple of shows.
I would rather have Maiden. I think it's got more going on, and I really like the layout.
BK3 maybe does "flow" a little better, and has really great video animations. But it also deems a little bare without the upper playfield.
I'm also a fan of IM the band from way back, so probaby biased. Although I do have good memories of playing the original BK on location many years ago.

I own Iron Maiden pro and have played BKSOR many times actually picking mine up next week. I enjoy both games but Iron Maiden is the much better game.

Iron Maiden as you have GOT which is kind of similar to BK3.

comparing 2 completely different games, u need both. IrMd isn't better but different much more going on, deeper. BK3 is just as good.

WOZ? nah

I own Iron Maiden and it is the best pro by Stern in years. Maiden all the way!

Iron Maiden is the best game released in a long time, very happy to have it. BKSOR was fun but the software is currently not deep enough for me to have long term interest in it. Once it gets updates I will most likely buy one.

Maiden pro is pretty stacked and they didn't remove much from the higher models with regards to playfield features. BKSOR pro seems barren and looks like a zizzle since they removed the entire upper playfield. SR is one of my favorie designers however I would take maiden anyday over BKSOR when considering Pro's. Magnasve button location is one if the worst designs in a while.

As much as I like BKSOR, Iron Maiden just has more going on....

Voted IMDN bot would go with Deadpool.

I’ve got both and I’d say maiden BUT if you don’t like maiden, if you don’t like the music at all perhaps not? Non pinheads will gravitate to bksor. My wife actually really really likes bksor In fact she told me it’s her third favorite game behind taf and mbr which I was shocked to hear! When guests come over NOBODY plays my maiden... the last party I had EVERYONE played bksor...

We are fortunate to have both machines on location so comparing both machines has been easy. I definitely prefer Iron Maiden. Some really satisfying shots, especially the sweep-able drop targets! If I had room I would get Iron Maiden, no question.

Thanks For everyones Opinions.

Def think I will be getting Iron Maiden - and add BKSOR in the future

Here is another can of worms. I normally opt for premium versions, but really feel the PRO can't be beat for the value here. Not sure the premium warrants the price increase at all!

#15 1 year ago

Maiden over anything right now IMO, amazing game, I've only played the Pro and would def buy one...

#16 1 year ago

Own one and route the other, IMDN although they are both great games!

This is like comparing a supermodel to a fat chick. Maiden all the way!

#18 1 year ago

This will be the first NIB I have ever purchased!
Most likely just getting the PRO - Anyone recommend a dealer with Free Shipping

But you never have to worry about the fat chick getting fat.

Iron Maiden pro is my favorite game of all time, so... yeah, that one. Makes it real easy for me in all these polls.

Looks like IMDN gave BK a beat down big time!
