Quoted from Rob_G:
ST still has quite a few code issues which have yet to be fixed. It also lacks polish in several key areas. The dots aren't the best and quite frankly suck compared to the LCD on SW. But, having said that I would say ST is the better shooting game. Combos on ST flow nicely whereas on SW not so much. SW also overwhelms with perhaps too many multiballs which can make 4th level missions a bit more tedious than fun.
I sold my ST because I hated the lack of polish the code had. Animations with no sound, bugs in nero 2 still, broken pop values, lack of black hole values and the less than stellar away team implementation. It also still has a game crashing bug which Stern knows about, but have not released a fix in almost 2 years.
I agree Rob_G . But I am not good enough to get to past the end of the game . That is were you run into the "invalid" Crash mode I will never see it. But it does show that STERN should have addressed the last wizard mode when you get to 'Invalid mission" I vote SW pro only for all the same RGB Color changing inserts and choreographed GI lighting that is the same on The SWLE . As for ST pro the missing RGB color changing insert and the laser beam KMball light show and all the other armor upgrades / Kickass Back glass . LE or bust for ST . Go with SW pro .
