Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:
I still haven’t found a BKSoR pro to play but love the LE. Would you say the BKSoR pro feels like a complete game or does it feel like a separate but equally awesome game? Can’t imagine playing this game and enjoying it without an upper playfield, feeling it is integral to the strategy and the way one plays the game. Is it any different for you on BKSoR? If the pro feels like a complete but different game, is anyone crazy enough to have a pro & prem/le sitting next to each other at home?
As a reference, all versions of Munsters feel like one game to me and while the prem/le has an added lower playfield that is cool, I don’t miss it playing on a pro. Color or no color all versions give me 95% of the experience. Also on Deadpool, the left orbit shot around back of game, down the shooter lane then up and down to the right flipper is cool but feel I get 95% of the experience with a DP pro. Do you still get 95% of the experience with BKSoR pro?
I have the LE, a friend has the pro and it is also available to me at a location I visit often. When I first played the pro (before I got my LE) I felt it was overly simple and actually had second thoughts about getting one at home. The simplicity of the pro has improved a bit with the new code, but the upper playfield adds a lot to the strategy: Take a risky shot on the lower playfield or get the ball to the upper playfield at get credit for it at the standup target? Build the value of the mode on the upper playfield while risking running out of time? An extra MB which can be stacked, extra skill shot with the standup and ball lock on the upper playfield. Even when not in a mode the upper loop shot is satisfying and worth decent points that build with each time it is made in succession. So I'd say you get <95% of the experience with pro, maybe around 60-70%. Some say they prefer the pro, but you could get the pro experience on the prem/LE just by never going for anything on the upper playfield and I can't imagine anyone playing it like that. After playing the LE most of the time, now when I play the pro I really do feel like a lot of the game is missing.
