** And then there was another release for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 in 2006. The first warning sign is that the game is on a CD. Once you start playing the game itself, is quickly becomes apparent how it takes up so little space: For starters, there is no voice-acted dialogue and no music during gameplay. Speaking of gameplay, the first level of the game starts with a forced stealth section where it seems like whether you get seen has nothing to do with being in the line of sight of enemies. Once you get to actual shooting, it doesn't get any better. There are plenty of glitches both with the graphics and programming. To top things off, apparently the developer did not get the rights for Eddie Murphy's likeness or the iconic theme tune, so both are replaced with something that only bears a slight resemblance to the source.

* CoveredUp: Raise your hand if you first heard this movie's theme song from the Crazy Frog. It's okay, we won't judge you.

** While it's generally agreed that the PC version's music is terrible, the Spectrum 48K port's music isn't too far behind given that the platform too only had a beeper for the game to work with (along with a title screen with what appears to be Eddie Murphy suffering from third degree sunburn). The only thing that makes it bearable is that it sounds less like someone strangling an ice-cream truck and more like someone autotuning their farts.

* SensoryAbuse: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKMVrtzGPek The PC version's music]]. Sure, it's no VideoGame/CrazyBus, but it's still ''ear rape''. The Spectrum 48K version's not that far behind either.

* PortingDisaster: A tie-in for the film was released on several platforms, most notably UsefulNotes/{{Amiga}}, UsefulNotes/AtariST, UsefulNotes/Commodore64, and PC, among several other lesser machines. The Amiga version has smashing music due to the Paula audio chip. The Atari ST, Spectrum 128K and [=C64=] version were bearable thanks to the PSG sound system. The PC version, however, is this trope play straight. Using only EGA graphics and PC speaker sound, despite the [=AdLib=] and Game Blaster, and indeed the first generation Sound Blaster, being already released when the game came out and VGA was already picking up steam. And even then the PC music was often described as someone strangling an ice cream truck.
