wich one to choose?

please take a minute to tell us about your choice!

Party zone is just a cheesy schlocky theme that gets annoying quick. I got rid of one fast. Bride is a fantastic theme with some really great art and sound. Neither game is exceptionally deep or complex but bride by a mile here in his comparison in my book

I vote party zone it can be a very hard game if set up right. I don't like bride of pinbot because you can either shoot the center ramp over and over or the left ramp over and over.

Tough comparison, but i think Dkjimbo nailed it with:

Quoted from Dkjimbo:

BoP isn't very good either, imho, since it's basically a one shot game. Hit the leftmost shuttle ramp all day and you win. BUT BoP is atmospheric, ethereal, and has a great soundtrack. It's one of the few cases where I'd take a deeply charismatic game with lacking gameplay over something as berating (but better playing) as Party Zone.

While the shots are as described above, I have not yet mastered BOP in casual play
Never understood why people liked it until I brought one home recently.
Now, it's hauntingly fun in many ways, and it works at drawing me in to play again and again.
I think it's a unique combination of art, sound, and uniqueness, to keep around for a while.
I do understand how after a period of time, it
will lose some of it's luster, but in finding a good deal, it's safer to enjoy, and pass it on without any dollar worries.

I like the pinbot series also but just more fun out of the Party zone for me,Regret selling it.

I'd agree PZ, is more fun, and depending on ones line up and taste, might be a better choice, especially if there are kids.

Own both, but BoP gets my vote. Another thing in favor of BoP is getting ahold of the 2.0 software/kit, which is very well done (IMO).

Ok right now I'm struggling on which I'm going to sell. I have both. Party Zone with the exception of Deep Purple and Pinball Wizard I find the music aggrevating at times. Brides music is top notch awesome. Gameplay BOP is too shallow for me. Hit the ramp over and over. Get extra ball over and over. Center ramp over and over 2 ball multi ball on my Party Zone is a ball buster. 1 gone you're done. Setting up million boppers with multi ball makes for high scores. Risk reward on collecting and building jackpots is fun. My out lanes are brutal as well. I like both but PZ gets my vote for longer lasting fun and more to do
