* FranchiseKiller: ''MARZ'' was heavily criticized for changing the versus dynamic into a single player campaign with a generic storyline using FORCE's degraded physics, and bombed in sales. There hasn't been a new entry since. Ironically, characters and enemies that make cameo appearances in other series (such as the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'' series) are based on their appearances in ''MARZ''.

A new title in the series will be released after 15 years.



** ''Operation Moongate''[='=]s [=Model2=] Collection re-release on UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade and UsefulNotes/PlayStationNetwork is also Japan-only, which has HD graphics surperior to the Sega Ages 2500 Series version on [=PlayStation=] 2. Needless to say, some people are pissed about this.

Added DiffLines:

* SequelGap: You can imagine the shock fans had when ''[[LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex A Certain Magical]] [[{{Crossover}} Cyber Trooper (Virtual-ON)]]'' was announced for release in 2018, ''15 years'' after 2003's ''Virtual-ON MARZ''.

** The [=PlayStation=] Network re-release of ''MARZ'' also got this end of the stick. Thankfully for those with Japanese PSN account and access to Japanese currency can play ''MARZ'' without the laughably bad voice-overs and removed content from the English version.

However, Sega has no plans to remake this game into a full overhaul at the time being.

* BadExportForYou: The English version of ''MARZ'' loses a LOT of story-related content, BlindIdiotTranslation, and it has shoddy English voice-overs.

** This was nearly the case with the [[UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast Dreamcast]] version of ''Oratorio Tangram'', as Sega had no plans to release it outside Japan at the time. However, Creator/{{Activision}} stepped in and published the game in North America, although the network feature was removed and the game didn't see a release in Europe.

* NoExportForYou: The ''Sega Ages 2500 Series Vol. 31: Cyber Troopers Virtual-ON'' for the {{PlayStation 2}} was released only in Japan, and it's considered the best port of the original game thus far, much to Western fans' dismay.

** ''Virtual-ON: FORCE'' for the {{Xbox 360}} is also a Japan-only port of the series' third installment, but thankfully the game is [[RegionCoding region-free]], making the game import-friendly... if you're willing to spend a lot of money for it (depending where you're importing it from), especially the rare ''[[MilestoneCelebration MEMORIAL BOX 15]]'' [[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition premium package]].
