a while a go i had a poll between MB and LOTR, MB has moved out of the picture but lately i am having doubts about Spiderman

wich would you recommend? LOTR or Spiderman?

That's like making the kids pick which parent they want to live with after the divorce.

Honestly I have to pick LOTR because It feels less repetitive and the game software is just so well done and integrated with the movies. Spider-man doesn't leave me with a feeling of exhaustion of actually taking a walking quest through middle earth though.. so.. if you want a challenge without the extra effort SM may be the best

cant go wrong with either.

LOTR by far

Both are outstanding games! Really, this one is really a personal taste question, you should play both and make a decision for yourself. There is no right or wrong decision purely based on just looking and playing the machines... only you know which one you personally will like IMO.

That being said, I owned LOTR LE and SM at the same time, and kept LOTR and sold SM after about a year. After SM was gone a while, I missed it, and just ended up getting another one. Both are super fun games.

So as you can tell, LOTR won out for me when I had to decide which one to move.

On a side note: I know more collectors with LOTR than SM, and it seemed like I could play LOTR in more places than SM.. so SM seems rarer to find.

Apples and Oranges.

Apples and Oranges.

I vote apples. Oranges are so much more work to peel.

One pin to rule them all!

If I had to sell one it would probably be my SM, so I say LOTR as well.

This is a argument for either filet mignon or lobster. I personally prefer LOTR, but these are two killer titles with totally different gameplay. You can't go wrong with either, but two totally different experiences.

I owned both; LoTR is still here.

Tough call, I voted for SM but I love both those games. They are probably my two favourite games.

#16 6 years ago

LOTR is gone. S-M is still here.

Both games can have long ball times. Both games have great rules.

I just prefer the flow and speed of S-M.

Oh yeah, LOTR was sold to finance an AC/DC Premium and I have ZERO regrets!

Gotta love all these "X vs Y" threads lately.

Fairly close call, but LOTR for me.

#18 6 years ago

I owned both. SM lasted 18 months in the collection and was traded off.....LOTR was bought NIB in Nov 2005 run and is still in my collection

Software...LOTR easily. Physical design...SM. Hard for me to get past LOTRs clunky shots.

LOTR - I kick myself for selling mine a few years ago. Better DMD dots - Shots are more satisfying - Both are similar with fan layout but that's where it ends. packed full with things to shoot for. Tons of strategy involved. One of Sterns best pins ever and hard to top. Spiderman is kick ass though and a close 2nd.

I have both SM and LOTR and both are long term keepers.
