* TheyJustDidntCare: The sequel's PC port. ''Every message about what buttons to press are in the form of console commands.'' Does ''your'' keyboard have Left Bumper or Yellow-Y?
** It's also missing any of the visual settings 99% of PC games have. So, if you're running on an older machine, you're outta luck.

Added DiffLines:

* GameBreaker: The Flamethrower + Rapid Fire combo in ''Elite Forces'', even though both aren't acquired until the last quarter of the game, they make the bosses in the two final areas a cakewalk.

* MorePopularSpinOff: To an extent. The ''Rearmed'' remake was meant to promote the sequel, but ''Rearmed'' is often considered the better game, to the point of getting its own sequel(By a dev made from the remnants of the ''Rearmed'' team after GRIN went kaput) in the same style.

* JumpTheShark: the rest of the sequel's story line suffers from this after Spencer gives the [[spoiler: Carrion Device]] to [[spoiler: Super Joe]], though certain sequences during that last hour are still very cool.

* PlayerPunch: [[spoiler:Haley]] is killed off rather anticlimactically just before the final boss fight of ''Rearmed''. Just in case you didn't already know [[strike:Hitler]] "The Leader" was evil. Repeated with [[spoiler:Maggie]] in an even less climactic fashion.

* HarsherInHindsight: Of all things, the ''WorldsOfPower'' novelization has an instance of this. Early in the book, Rad Spencer has trouble working the bionic arm, but pulls through. When he gets through the area he speaks to the arm, telling it he'll take care of it, and it'll take care of him. Fast forward to the 2009 sequel, where Spencer's arm [[spoiler: is his wife]]...

Added DiffLines:

* AnticlimaxBoss: In most of the original games, the bosses are poorly-designed--it's a bad sign when the typical end boss is a wall that you just shoot over and over. In the new console sequel, the bosses are much easier than the rest of the game--even the final boss and the ending sequences. However, in Rearmed, the bosses are just right.
** Often, it was easiest in the NES version to just run around the boss and blow up the reactor with a few rockets without killing the boss.
** At the end of the arcade game, after spending a billion quarters fighting your way through the horrible FakeDifficulty, you reach the enemy general... an old man who doesn't fight back, and dies in a couple shots.


Added DiffLines:

* ScrappyWeapon: The machine gun from the NES version. It only shoots bullets, and they have a pretty short range. Your regular weapon, that you ''start the game with'', is better in almost every way - it has long range, and with a "turbo" button-equipped controller (or Turbo feature in an emulator) fires just as fast. The fact that the machine gun is kind of out of the way, and a little tricky to actually get if you don't know how, makes it even worse.
