Assuming both in same condition.............Which one would you go with.
Is this a real question?
LOTmotherF'nR no doubt.
You shall not pass
The Ents will go to war
Destroy the ring
Anyone else sing Bash the Balrog to the Clash "Rock the Casbah"?
Apples or Oranges for sure, but I'd lean towards Apples
That's what bill the pony said.
LOTR is ok but long and boring. When i play one i don't even want to finish after 10 minutes . Let's face it TOM IS a 100 times better theme. LOTR is based on a bunch of man loving midgets. I have had TOM for 3 months and am not tired of it at all. I have an 8 game collection with mostly A titles and when i have pinball players over they stay on TOM.
Op...what did you eventually do?
I too own both...don't plan on ever getting rid of either....but if push came to shove, lotr would still be mine...without any hesitation.
sold my tom to make room for xmen magneto. But it is a fun game, beautiful with leds.
I filled out the "poll" half expecting to see the results 50-50! It turns out, 99 of us(Me included), have good taste in Pinball machines! Yes, I voted for LOTR!
TOM, at first, is a blast! Its a Williams/Bally, so it feels great! Its got a great theam, and fantastic playfield toys for the theam! Even a cool, one way gate, to hit the ramp! But play it long enough, and you'll find out just how shallow it is. (Eprom mod candidate?)
Try the Stern, LOTR. Ok, so the feel of the flippers isn't the same as Williams. But that game rocks! Its got tons on modes and it will keep you entertained for years to come! Playfield toys aren't as exciting as TOM, but over all I'd go with LOTR, hands down.
