you sure bdk in heinsight the rules are average its just getting lucious and harvey dent which can be challanging(long drawn out) other than that its fairly simple well for me anyway just pulled out 508 mil today (factory settings, 3 balls , no ex. balls)

Xmen is way deeper then BDK. I think AC/DC and Metallica might be too? But definently Xmen.

Ac/dc is a lot deeper than a lot of people think, even down to picking the songs in order of when they were released for more points.

What about ST?

Umm everything. Wpt has insanely deep and complicated rules, second only to tspp.

BDK is quite shallow.

24 had got a ton going on. Fantastic game!

I would also consider POTC deeper than BDK. Alot of the modes on BDK are same-same. I never found it that deep. Crane is a blast and Joker MB is a ton of fun as well. Love stacking them as well.

Yeah I forgot about that one. With 18 modes it would definently be way deeper then BDK.

I'll disagree all day about ST. I can't think of a game where modes are less distinguished from one another. It doesn't even matter what mode you're in - just keep shooting lit shots till Away Team is lit. The modes are the least compelling thing about that game, by far.

I agree with this statement, but it is still "deeper" then BDK though.

Guys, seriously, tell me a game that isn't deeper than BDK. I can't believe this question was even asked.

There is a factory extra ball after the 2nd gadget.

The age old question of what makes a game "deep" comes to mind.

If, for example, "deep" means completing the wizard mode on factory settings, then offhand, I would say finishing Gotham City on BDK is more difficult than the finishing Final Battle on T3.

"deep", to me, means "are lot of things in it, some of which are behind other things or interact in interesting ways that require discovery".

Shooting the centre ramp over and over in BDK to get Fox finished isn't deep, it's just tedious. BDK doesn't have lots of rules in it, all told. Is is well balanced? Mostly, so you see more of the rules than in lots of games where you do the same thing over and over.

I agree with the posters above that BDK's a fairly 'shallow' pin. A lot of the rule complexity of games like X-men and AC/DC is sufficiently hidden that people don't notice it, though...
