    I haven't been able to play either, but I was wondering what your opinions on these two are. My wife would love a Jurassic Park pin with a moving T-Rex, but I can't tell which ones move or don't.

    Used Prices seem to be very close.

    Jurassic Park - Ranked #94 - $4500
    Jurassic Park (Home Edition) Unranked - $4000
    Jurassic Park (Pro) Ranked #32 - $6800

    While each of the JP machines are great on their own merits, I prefer the DE version myself based on the adherence to events only in the original film, a wider variety of characters from the film making voice callouts (as opposed to "generic narrator" and the one licensed character Dennis Nedry in the later Sterns).

    That being said, the Stern Pro/Premium version probably has greater overall depth. Can't really speak to the home Pin version though as I think I've only played that version once. The DE one can feel a bit thinner at times, even using the Chad's 6.0 code (which makes a big improvement and is a suuuper easy install).

    Whichever way you go I'm sure you'll have a ton of fun, but just wanted to chip in my $.02!

    DE JP was the second game I owned it only lasted a few months for me personally, I did have the updated ROMs but the modes didn’t really seem to mean anything for the progress in the game. Yes you needed them all to start the wizard mode but other than that most of them were really just try to survive to start the next one.

    I’ve only played the Stern one a handful of times but I would take that any day over the DE one but I like game progression more than points so I like the idea of working through the paddocks and the control rooms modes.
