After using the information and ratings on Pinside I've narrowed down 35 machines to 3 final choices for what to buy next, thought i'd throw this one out to the forum.

Option 1. Judge Dredd
Option 2. The Shadow
Option 3. Arena and Big Hurt or Gladiators

It's a tough one, I am a fan of Gottlieb System 3's and the more pins the merrier but on the flip side Judge Dredd and Shadow are very highly rated!!

Thanks!

just got dredd yesterday so I dont have enough play time on it but there is a LOT of shit going on in that big badass machine. Shadow is just plain awesome. dont have any play on the others. so yeah, no help here.

All of the above and you are halfway there to becoming the next o-din.

JD was my first of only 3 and I love that machine. Bought it without playing it before based on bang for the buck ratings. Now it's one of my favorites of any pin not just the few I own. I was disappointed in The Shadow but I didn't play it a ton. I never played the others.

Judge Dredd is the only machine I've ever let go that I miss.

Shadow would be a very easy choice out of those.

Definitely leaning towards JD or The Shadow... time to add a bit more class to the man cave!

I have both. And Big Hurt, and have had Gladiators. Dredd is still my favorite of the bunch. Nothing wrong with any of them.

The Shadow is a good game. I had a nice one. But, there is so much more to do on Judge Dredd in my opinion. It's just awesome.

The Shadow by a mile - you will NEVER master it.

He has a point there. It is the hardest of the bunch. But I still put more games on Dredd. It is fun.

Jd is a WIDE game...and it's umm...well it's wide, and it has a bunch of inlanes because it's wide. So...yeah.

Oh and all the dots are kick ass.

Would one be better than the other if I wanted to mod it, I do have a tendency to jazz my machines up a bit

#15 6 years ago

None of them. Pick something else.

I don't tend to go nuts modding machines but Dredd does have a Deadworld mod and a color DMD available and PinRob really went to town on his.

#19 6 years ago

haha yep I've been looking at the color dmd site this afternoon at work... I think i'm swayed!

SHADOW!!!

#21 6 years ago

If it has to be a game from the list provided I would choose Shadow.

Judge Dredd has been purchased! basically it came close with Shadow but that 90s comic style theme won it for me in the end. thanks for the help guys and for the Australia, Oscar at Pinball Memories (PinballMem on facebook) really does have some great prices in you're chasing a good machine!
