** Or, if you live in Europe and Asia, [[FromBadToWorse WORSE]]. There was the time when a certain ringtone company decided to use the song to promote a certain HalfDressedCartoonAnimal ([[DontExplainTheJoke Alright]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crazy_frog THIS ONE]], [[SchmuckBait if you must]]), thus ruining the original version and making it virtually impossible for fans of the original song to hum the original in public without some cretin blathering "[[MostAnnoyingSound DING! DING!]]" and other nonsensical and irritating noises between the melody lines. Be THANKFUL it was hardly a success in the US- it did spread to Asia, and people in the two regions are still very greatly annoyed, ''even over a decade later''.

* ValuesDissonance: After a few decades of LGBT civil rights progress, Axel's mincing imitation of a gay man in the first movie appears more uncomfortable than funny to many people.

movie. The voice and mannerisms are already rather groan-worthy, but the "herpisimplex ten" is downright cruel. The bit has aged quite poorly after 30 years of LGBTQ+ awareness.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: Aside from the porting disaster mentioned above, the game was considered only mediocre at best, as it appeared to consist of several minigames tossed together in haste. And the darn game came out in 1990, 6 years after the original movie! By then [=PCs=] have had the option of getting better music from add-ons like the [=AdLib=], Creative Game Blaster, or even the original Sound Blaster. Additionally, VGA graphics cards which allowed for much better graphics were starting to catch on. To only use EGA and PC speaker audio is pretty much saying TheyJustDidntCare at that point.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
