Generally this is a good, fun pin to play. I like the art on the Pro cabinet better than the Premium and LE. The general layout is different and fairly good. However, there are a couple of "clunky" shots that if they were designed a little different to be smoother, it would be a great pin. Sometimes it is real frustrating. The animations and call outs are great and fit the theme well. The lil Deadpool on a spring was the subject of many jokes by the pinball community initially, but it has generally been accepted at this point. The battles are fun, but the various other multi-balls I like better. The extra mechanisms and toys make it better than a Pro. I would play this on location several times on each visit. I would maybe like to own a LE some day down the road for a good price.

I can’t believe how great this game is. I played it at Expo and it was fun but now it’s just at another level. Great job with the updated code. This pin is just fun fun fun! And funny. I was kinda hoping for an R rated version but the callouts are great even without the f-bombs etc. Artwork is up there with the best of all time, music is fantastic, and the play field is very unique. The LE is gorgeous and feels super solid, almost like a JJP in fit and finish. Shoots unlike anything else I own. Great job Stern.

We bought this for our cabin so it gets intense play for a few days then sits idle for months. Everyone (some who haven't played much pinball) who visits binges on it for several hours a night. Its getting more and more fun for me as we play more and learn the rules. The call outs are funny and the shots are fun. If you like the theme its a winner!

Great art, fun theme, unique shots. Premium and Le are better in my opinion because of the right orbit diverter and the disco ball. Code has made this one not just a looker but a player as well.

Deadpool LE along with Munsters LE are two of the best Sterns that I've had the pleasure of playing in a long time. This is the rare case where I couldn't care less about the theme and yet enjoyed the game immensely. It's great to see Gomez design a game after taking a long break from doing so. The shots are varied and this is nothing like your typical Stern. Playfield is packed with ramps and loops, but doesn't feel claustrophobic. I like how you do battles as it makes the game and how to play it very approachable. The game looks great, but is extremely red, which fits the theme, I suppose.

DP was my first ever Stern LE purchase and I'm glad it was frankly. Thoroughly enjoying it since purchase in December and playing it equally as much as my POTC CE also bought in December. Every code update is making it better. I love the flow of the machine, it's definitely one of the better Sterns of the last couple of years all round. The Zombie Yeti artwork is brilliant on top. The sounds and call outs are also a heap of fun.

I would love to add this to my collection. I would recommend the premium. Much nicer then the pro, no need for a Limited.

Deadpool will be a great pinball when the code will be completed... there is a high potential in this pinball, we can feel it. Its really fun, flow is really good, playfield is just wonderfull, cabinet is really nice... the music and the animations are really funny...

A great pinball !

Deadpool is a blast to play. Just a fun game. Great layout, different. Flow is awesome. The diverter on the premium / le helps keep the game going.

Company office got a Deadpool Premium and I have mixed feelings about it.

Pros: The art is spectacular. I really like the Zombie Yeti art and the side blades on the LE look sweet. I also give bonus points to the freaking T-Rex on the side. I really like the retro Street Fighter 2 style of animations. The sound on this thing is awesome too. I love the music and generally like the callouts and voice work, but I agree with others that an optional "adult" mode would be awesome. If I were picking out a piece of furniture for my basement, this would be the machine as it looks beautiful as a stand alone piece of art and sounds awesome when someone else is playing it. I really like the Katana ramp gimmic. It doesn't always work, but I'm sure with more leveling it will get there. I am drawn to this machine. Were I an operator, this would be at the top of my list.

Cons: I have put 20 or so games on this and have not figured out the rules for the different modes yet. When fighting the different characters, you have to do different things to defeat different characters. There are no instructions on the apron, in game callouts, or flashing lights on the field to tell you what to do. Some characters require hitting the drop targets to beat and others require hitting ramps. No idea what I'm doing. I'm still having fun playing it, but am hoping these unclear rules will be fixed with future code updates. To the Stern Programmers reading this... the game has a lot of potential, but something needs to happen so we don't have to look up the instructions online to figure out what is going on. The physical build quality on this machine does not seem as nice as my CGC AFMr or the SW LE this game replaced. It's not cheap per se, but I'd be interest to see if Stern was using thinner wood on this. There are parts of this machine that scream hollow to me. I am comparing this machine directly to a SW LE (as that is what this one replaced) and I don't find myself as drawn to this machine. SW had that "one more game feel", but DP doesn't. Looking at the two of them I have the urge to play DP more, but once I'm playing I want to keep playing SWs all day, but DP gets older quicker.

DP has a fresh layout with a ton of fun and rewarding shots.

The team at Stern has put a lot of passion in it and the software has largelly evolved since the release of the pinball (new modes, mode stacking, lot of new animations...)

I have tried several times to like this game, but just don't. It's a bit boring, repetitive, and not much going on in the play field to mix it up. I think this is geared more towards kids who like the movie and the comics.

This game really grew on me! Play experience lives or dies by how well that katana ramp is shooting smoothly. 2d fighting animations are great for a superhero pin!

.96 update really impressed me!

I am really enjoying this game. Yes, as others have said, it's not as smooth as my Steve Ritchie games, but it's still a lot of fun to shoot/play and the overall experience is excellent. Still learning the shots, but when I do make them they work well (even the Katana ramp shot). I look forward to the rules being further developed and along those lines, would like for there to be more callouts telling me what to do/shoot for. There are some, and I am learning what to do, but more would be appreciated.

Original music that is great!! Disco ball, katana sword, chimichanga truck, what else could you ask for? Fresh idea for animations, great call outs that are line with the Deadpool character, and awesome artwork. I keep finding something new every time I play and I not performed an update yet. LE was well worth the wait and price. Stern hit a home run with this one.

This game had such potential, but unfortunately, I tired of it quite quickly in comparison to other recent pinball machines. On the plus side, it is absolutely beautiful. It pulls you in with the beauty of the art. Definitely one of the most beautiful pins out there. After spending about 3 hours playing it, though, I quickly tired of it. Sure, some of that will likely improve with code updates, but the playfield isn't that inspired. The bash toy shot is just too easy, so that you can hit it quite early every single game. On the flip side, while a really cool idea in theory, the katana shot is clunky and extremely hit or miss. Underneath the left side of the shot is a dead area where it seemed the designers couldn't decide what to do. Dullsville when the ball goes in there. Finally, while the animations on the screen are nice, you can't actually follow them while you're paying attention to the playfield, so they're not that well integrated. My ultimate verdict is that it is a reasonably fun pin, but other recent pins like Iron Maiden and Batmann 66 (with the newer code) are far better.

Deadpool offers a fresh pinball experience
The layout is both interesting and enjoyable to shoot
The Katana ramp shot feels great when successful, although it can be temperamental and expect rejected shots
Easy to follow rules, with good depth for the better players

Well.... the premium wasn’t any better with the added features. When I finally achieved the mirror ball, it was underwhelming. I really tried to give this game a chance, but even when the code is completed, it will still be unbearable to play for more than 10 minutes. The geometry doesn’t work, the call outs are not funny, lil Deadpool is an abomination, and I don’t like mixing annoying video games with Pinball. I’m a stern Pinball fan, but this one is not for me.

When you look at the difference between the PRO and the LE its not worthy of a $9500 price tag. The game is cool but the difference between a pro and LE is so limited that you wouldn't even notice. Just because you powder coat the LE doesn't and add a few $5.00 plastic toys doesn't make it worth more than the pro. The PRO and the LE are essentially the same and I would give the LE a lower rating because the price doesn't match the game.

Deadpool is a really fun game but get the pro Stern is just not Jersey Jack and unless they do something incredible should NOT be charging 9500 for a game.

Nothing particularly revolutionary, but damn, it really nails the fun factor. The retro game animations and audio flashbacks to arcade classics give this game a style that is incredibly charming.

Slightly better than the Pro, but not by much. Still WAY too easy. Call outs are NOT funny. This pin should be edgier and funnier. And more fun to shoot.

This game has it. Original layout with satisfying shots. Not cheap. Great looking. Great battle modes. Great sound and music. Video fits the game well.
