which would you rather have, considering TSPP is 4700, GB is 5400, Iron Maiden at 5000
Maiden pro. I owned one. Only sold it because not into music but best pro for a long time.
The Simpsons was one of the only shows I cared about as a kid. I loved Ghostbusters and watched it many times. I don't listen to Iron Maiden.
And yet..it's an easy decision. Iron Maiden.
(TSPP is more stop and go than I like, and feels like a lot of chopping wood. Spend most of your time going to the upper playfield. Ghostbusters is vastly improved with the new code, but it's full of cheap drains (some of which can be mitigated), doesn't have super satisfying shots, and doesn't make me want to play it over and over).
Had all three. Maiden wins hands down. Many ways to play that pin. Simpson’s is fun in spurts but the gameplay gets tedious after a while. Ghostbusters is ok, but is the weakest of the bunch.
I currently own Maiden but have owned TSPP in the past, honestly I'd say TSPP is better overall. Maiden is good, just not TSPP good. People above are right that it can be long, probably too long sometimes, but there are a lot of games that shoot similar to Maiden, nothing is similar to TSPP. It also has clear rules and objectives, I find that Maiden along with some other recent Sterns do a poor job of actually separating things when they're going on at the same time.
Maiden plays faster than tspp. They're both deep and will keep you entertained forever. Prices seem fair and you can't go wrong with either. I don't own Ghostbusters and haven't played with the new code, so i'll withhold my opinion on that one.
Had im premium and gb pro. I would get gb. New code fixes a lot. Funner games, more going on in it
I’d buy whichever theme you like better, all are good games. If I had to rank it would be tspp>IMDN>gb. There’s just so much to see in tspp and so many unique things. Ball times can be long, but i enjoy every minute of it.
TSPP by far ! Fun, rich, fast. Once you get the rules right and know what to hit when, it’s not so much of a stop and go game, most of the modes are designed to encourage a fast play.
That being said the games are long, the outlanes are very forgiving and the game is light enough to nudge.
All together the game has a lot of depth, different strategies and new things to discover even after many plays.
Want to love TSPP but never really clicked with me either. It's fun but don't want to keep playing like Maiden. I don't care for the music but fantastic game. Rules are pretty easy to pick up and it just feels designed for the player. GB wore out it's welcome long ago. Great theme but gameplay not so great.
Bottom line is there is a lock for every key. Buy what you like and you will never go wrong. Find a place and play them all. Some games may drive you crazy even though they get lots of love here.
BTW There is no accounting for taste. One of my favorite games is road kings. lol
[i still say tspp] not that anyone cares. lol [big bang theory reference]
plus its a whitestar game. Darn near bullit proof.
Look at the rules for TSPP... and this is just part of it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pf9hwkgrsiu959v/TSPP%20Rules%20v3.1.pdf?dl=0
Uploading the PDF to Pinside fails, so sorry for the external link.
Anyway, if you’re looking for a pin that will take a while to complete, I can’t see a choice other than TSPP.
I own a GB and a TSPP. I think TSPP is objectively a better game than GB. However, I am definitely more compelled to play GB. Probably because of the shorter games. This was even before the new code. The new GB code is overall much better than it was, but I definitely think they took away some of the strategic choices. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the three and none of them feel like cookie cutter games.
