Just my opinion and nothing more:

WOZ: A overproduced light show....nothing more. Boy I wanted to love this game as it is my favorite movie of all time. Way, I repeat way to much going on in the playfield. Boring.

Houdini: You better be a good and I mean a real good shooter. Never have I played a game with such tight shots. OK I am not the best player...guilty as charged. But the fun factor was sucked all out from me.

Dialed In: most over hyped game in the history of pinball.  Don’t get it and for the sake of fairness that is probably my fault. Do not like any Lawlor games outside of Addams Family

I got about 20 minutes on a Houdini and 20 minutes on a Dialed In today. both new out of box, and after going thru and tweaking some of the settings on Houdini, it was great. Dialed In seemed more "dialed in" out of the box. bluntly, both are great games.

I slightly like Houdini a little bit more, but Dialed In has a lot of cool innovations. both are unique in flow, layout, and tricks. great artwork on both, more colorful light show on Dialed In, which JJP nailed out of the box on their first title.

it's hard to choose which one.

       ...and basically anything 50% off eBay/painside value

I would honestly say your choice should only be between Dialed in and Houdini.

I have not played Houdini yet so my advice is, get out to the pinball lounge and put some time on both games as they currently have both games in their lineup.

Have you considered a TNA?  Far better and cheaper than any of the fore mentioned machines. If not Karl had the rankings correct. Dialed in >>>>> Woz >> Houdini. Also I would put Twd (but you have one) and GOT ahead of those guys as well.
Regards,
Al

Danny,  there's a lot of.... Well badness in the world today. I see it in the court everyday. I've sentenced boys younger than you to the gas chamber.... didn't want to do it.... felt I owed it to them.

My response would be that if you only have room for one new game... first buy a bigger home and then start collecting again. You need all three games! Life without limits!  ;D

We updated the code on Houdini which now includes some automated adjustments to address trunk catapult issues.  We’ve also adjusted the Spirit Planchette so balls don’t get stuck.  As discussed earlier, we have 2 of the 3 games you mentioned so come by and check them out at TPL.
