Narrowed it down to two. Opinions on which game you would choose and why? Thank you all.

I've owned both, and I'm thinking about bringing back Demo Man. The software lets NBA Fastbreak down a bit. It's fun, but it probably needed another *something*.

Demo Man, on the other hand, might have a small bit more going on depending on how you look at it, but the reason I think it's better is that it doesn't feel like it's missing something. Plus, flow and a lot more shots.

I own them both and never want to sell either.

DM is more flow... And NBA fb is more about making shots. Wizard mode (championship) in NBAFB rules

I've owned Demo Man and I like the game, but it just couldn't keep my attention in a home environment. The claw rules and the left side of the playfield (car crash and retina scan) leave something to be desired. I'll still play it and enjoy it on route, but I wouldn't get it again for those reason.

I think NBAFB is fun and I like going for multiple rings. Having a high score for each team gives you something to shoot for over and over. It's a shooters game that requires different shots and combinations. I would get one if the price was right.

I would go with NBA FB. Plenty of shots and combos and a fun theme. Sold my DM and don't miss it. Ball moves slower on DM and claw breaks up flow of game. Theme is darker and gloomy music.

I prefer NBAFB. The Demolition Man left side of playfield is basically out of play since it's almost never desirable to hit the car crash or retina scan. Both are fun games.

I would get the demo man

Still have NBAFB, kids and adults of all ages love it!

NBAFB shines when it's linked. DM is the better game solo.

so different than most other games...newbies love the scoring

Depends on what you're looking for. Both are surprisingly good with new players, NBAFB seems to be better with them from my experience. Both games have decent rules and good theme integration if you like their themes. I have both (technically, I have two NBAFBs!), and if I had to pick just one, it would be DM by a hair.
