* 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''.
