MMR is a fantastic game, fun, enjoyable, hard enough to challenge 90 % of pinballers and has some sweet shots and rules and ambiance as well. MMR is light-hearted, TWD is not lighthearted but can be all of those other things as well. Really a matter of what theme you like better and MMR, in my opinion, has better flow than TWD premium. I am not into zombies in any way, shape or manner so that decision would be an easy one for me.
Both are highlight games for me (in the collection), and very fun, but in different ways. MMR is more repetitive, has longer game times, is easier, I love the humour and the packed PF. TWD LE/Prem is more varied (as you progress in it), has shorter game times, is more difficult, and is more intense with lots of fun interaction on the PF. They compliment each other very nicely.
For myself, having no memory of ever playing MM, both pins were essentially new to me. So both pins had that important aspect to me as well.
I didn't recommend one over the other since everyone is different and you haven't explained what you want (fun can be defined many different ways). Also, some people want the same flavour of ice cream over and over again (with their pins), while others want variety. Both are great options. GL
I have owned TWD for almost 3 years and I still have not finished all of the wizard modes. Like many have said, MMr is a beautiful remake that is approachable for most players. TWD will bring you to tears with its diffficulty, but you will still go back for more because it is that good of a game. I have never seen an episode of The Walking Dead. I bought the game because I loved the playfield design, the code, and the lighting. With certain sound patches, the game becomes even more engrossing. You can't go wrong with either, though.
No contest for me - TWD Premium.
MM (and MMR) is a fine game, but I don't place it on as high a pedestal as many other pinheads apparently do.
I enjoy playing TWD Premium much more because its (asymmetric) layout and ruleset are more unique; and its gameplay, although brutal, is way more intense and immersive for me. And I'm not a big fan of the TV show either.
