Bop is a cool game but I'd have to go with The Getaway. Maybe Mustang Paul can chime in. I know he has both.
Getaway is shallow but is fast and fun. Supercharger is pretty cool, especially when you get 3 balls going. Shooting the top loop with the upper flipper never gets old. Love the lightshow getting jackpots. I really enjoyed mine while I had it. If I had more space for games I would of kept it. BOP is fun as well. While I have not had much time playing it, it also seems pretty simple. Not sure what else you do besides shooting the ramp. I have to give the edge to Getaway for the Ritchie flow and third flipper. If I could have a large collection, I would love to have both.
I owned a bop, had it next to my pinbot. great music/sound effects/call outs. gameplay is left ramp all day and grows old quick. never missed it for a moment.
I’d prefer bop, just for the sexual overtones.....and the chicks voice. Heck, if I could switch Siri’s voice to hers I’d buy new iPads and iPhones.
Getaway is a great game, but the heartbeat blackout, 1 Billion points shot, sound, and artwork, make BoP a slightly more exciting game in my opinion. I have owned one for alomost a year and still no one is tired of going for a billion points.
ugh, i have to reluctantly go with The Getaway, even though my heart is with BOP.
It's a real shame. BOP has such cool art, sound effects, and mechs. I love the rotating head, and the progression of bringing the Bride to life. Unfortunately, everyone else is right about the Shuttle Ramp being the only shot that matters. Well ok, there is also that left horseshoe if you want to chase extra balls, but the only thing extra balls are good for are shooting the Shuttle Ramp some more. :/
Also, it's broken in competition, since the Billionaire Club shot makes literally everything else on the game pointless. And even if you disable that, the scoring is still annoyingly random with the big and small wheels doling out random awards for the bulk of a player's score.
So I guess it breaks down like this:
I have to say those latter gameplay factors are more important. It doesn't matter how pretty a game is if it's a chore to play.
The Getaway is pretty good, but it's not a great game in my opinion. It's definitely a game you can come back to more often than BOP, though.
