Play Matt: Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth Review
I'm looking at a box, and one of my earliest memories is looking back at me. An implacable figure in a blue-black jumpsuit, eyes obscured behind a helmet and joints protected by padding. On his chest is a gold badge emblazoned with a single word: Dredd. I drew this character in felt tip, from memory, before I was even able to read, without knowing who he was. That's how deep Judge Dredd had embedded in the psyche of '70s Britain.

Both sound good, not sure which wins out at the moment - more family orientated Lost Expedition or Dredd based version...
I'd pick on whichever theme appeals most.
I would say I enjoyed TLE marginally more as a co-op/solo game than Dredd. Dredd seems extremely difficult to beat and I'm not sure the new mechanics add much to the experience. Plus TLE has an expansion for more variety if you want it.
That said, Dredd has a better theme, naturally and as a competitive game, it's much better.

Player count tops at 4 max. I've only played it co-op with 2 and 3 and it works well at both numbers. The competitive game is 2 only.
I eventually gave TLE away to a friend after it went out of rotation and with the expectation of replacing it with Dredd but I'm not so sure now. I'm usually a sucker for 2000AD related stuff but it doesn't sound unique enough to be more than a novelty after we reached a point of feeling all played out on TLE.
