Those that have experience of both pins - which do you like better and why?
Woz hands down. The game has such great integration and rules. Pirates sucks with an overly complex ruleset and weak theme integration.
POTC feels like it shoots better to me and has a ton of depth. I've probably put in ~100 games and keep coming back for more.
WOZ feels 'clunkier' but is a stunningly beautiful game and completely kicks my ass every time i play it. Admittedly I've put in less games than I have on POTC but something about those stupid outlanes just irks me from the get-go on WOZ. So I probably have a negative bias going in.
For my house... I'd be Pirates all the way.
WOZ for both theme and game. The game makes a clever use of multiball where shots require precision while keeping an eye on all the balls. Stackable modes, tons of shots, lots of different ways to complete, and good balance between speed and control. Add to that some awesome calls, the wicked witch, cool parts of the movies and this game goes endless.
My only wish is that they got the songs, it would have been awesome.
