Edit. Just read your line up.
JD is deep not fun IMO slow clunky and did I say slow. The rules are great but the play killed it for me. If you go that route jack it up to a 7 pitch and wax it well.
Bride...that is on your wish list and in the same price range...I say fulfill your dreams...played her last weekend- fun and will fit your collection well.
play both .. walk away ..wait a few days .. buy the one you want to go back and play again
Ive owned both...Getaway HS2 all day long and twice on Sunday...actually picked up another HS2 because I missed it, yet have no desire to get another JD. However I like ZZ Top, fast cars, and Steve Ritchie games for speed and flow so Im probably bias. Best bet is to get some time on both and go for the one that keeps you hitting the start button.
JD. There is so much more to do and that is especially important in a home environment. I love a deep, challenging game. 4 flippers with orbits, ramps and shots everywhere and even multiple game varieties with the super game. Getaway is fun, but there isn't much to it and would get repetitive quickly for me.
