Best art package!

Top five favorite pins of all time. Glad the theme is from the comic and not the movie! Putting away degenerates in a post apocalyptic setting, Deadworld multi ball, sniper in the tower, battling a human tank--- All provide a dazzling variety of shots! Drop targets, kickback, habitrails, ramps, loops, this table has everything a great table should have, especially when it offers that alternative game play!

Its all about the long ramp shots with this one, still it is quite a fun game once you get the rhythm of the table down.

very fun game, a lot to do and is a great game to have at home. The only default, is the light, its a dark machine, but i add 4 spotlight and is now perfect.
With a colordmd its awsome because is probably the best animations i see in pinball.

This game is amazing. There are tons of different modes to play, which keeps the game fresh. Animations are incredible with a color DMD. Artwork on the playfield, back glass and cabinet are some of my favorite and definitely match the comic. Really enjoy the call outs and music, although the multi-ball music does its work of being harrying/irritating. Lots of things to shoot for here and very challenging shot making. Bally/Williams from this time period have such a nice, smooth flow when you get them going. The playfield definitely needs LED/extra lighting to show off the artwork.

Judge Dredd is an excellent game (I write having owned it for 2 weeks now). I first played it about a year ago, and then got to spend more time with it a few months ago. Game has amazing flow. Excellent ramps and wireworms. Fun modes. Deadworld is cool. People say the dots are great, but the game has so much flow I never get to look at them.

Supergame is also a fun modification to the regular game (and it keeps a separate high score, so that fact that you get more points isn't a negative!).

Time will tell, but it's a keeper. Get one before the price skyrockets. Best kept secret in pinball....

Have owned this game for 8months ! Always have a blast playing it, super game is awesome.
Down side it has a very dark Playfield even with LEDs installed !!!

Fun game. Needs to be played in a fairly well lit room, as the playfield lighting is dim.

Judge Dredd is a cool machine. Animations are great, albeit graphic at times. I love the artwork and colors, but lighting is not great until you start adding LEDs, strips and spotlights. Plenty of modes, but wizard mode is weak. The layout in this game is terrific, plenty of angles and stuff to shoot for. Ball lock is second best in pinball, only to The Shadow, but Deadworld mod be finicky. Topper is cool looking and Super Game gives it even more lastibility. For me, ultimately it didn't give a difficult challenge and ongoing repair/maintenance made me sell it.

Interesting widebody machine. Lot's of ramps, lot's of flow. 4 flipper action packed WPC game. I like it! Give it a try!

I don't like music and the flow!where are the bumpers ?it's not a real pinball!the playfield is too dark!the gameplay is quite easy!

Just couldn't get into this pin. I enjoy most widebody games, but with this one the shots just didn't seem rewarding and felt very repetitive.

Super Game!

Flipper average as game but managed nothing from aesthetic point of view, certainly the issue does not help .....

Flipper acceptable from the perspective of the game but the design is definitely lower than expected, in addition the satellite of the planet seems like an unfinished work because the multiball would be much more fascinating if released from satellite ..... maybe origin were precisely these intentions .....

This game is a lot of fun. Easy to start modes and a lot of variety for shots.

I like Dredd-Nice wide body flow, deadworld is a little slow but well designed, a lot of wire rails is never a bad thing. I will always play this when I see one. Game has a great fun to price factor. Led's make this game pop!

I feel like I should like JD more than I do. I generally love widebodies with lots of toys and stuff to shoot for, but I never feel excited playing JD. It has the classic widebody problem of pointless stuff on the playfield. The captive balls are super cool and make a great sound effect when you hit them, but you don't have a lot of motivation to shoot them intentionally. The left outlane that lobs the ball up to the upper flipper is a nice way to set that up but it feels like it's there because they needed to fill out widebody space, the feature sure didn't warrant making the game a widebody. The lighting is abyssmal. The crane and deadworld don't do anything except waste time, compared to something like Demo Man where the crane has a big purpose.

It's certainly a great value in the amount of "stuff" you get for your money, but I have a lot more fun playing most of the other Superpins.

Great fun to play. I'm the LAW! Not a boring game. Lost to shoot for.

This is a very interesting game by design. Quite a few different modes. Has very good game flow as you can perpetuate the combos. When bored with the game is fun to jam out on super game. I like the lighting, the callouts, the music. Remember I am the law!

There appears to be not a lot of love out there for Judge Dredd - but I think it probably the best bang for your buck game and a total keeper.

Dredd is a great title that you can still find at a reasonable price, the game is unique in there are no pop bumpers on the game, I would put this machine into a dark comedy category, there is some great humor in this machine, the theme is well integrated, and it is challenging, I had the game for years, it was one that was always part of my collection, I no longer have it, as I have played it so much, I do not find myself wanting to play it anymore, but it is still one of my favorite games ever...

I highly recommend this title!
