* ItsHardSoItSucks: See DifficultyByRegion example. Amusingly, many of the people making this complaint are ''experienced players.''

* ItsHardSoItSucks: See DifficultyByRegion example.example; it was enough that many players took up threads relevant to the game to rant about it for pages, some calling that particular version of the game an outright PortingDisaster. Amusingly, many of the people making this complaint are ''experienced players.'' Fortunately for these players, a patch fixed this several months later.

* AwesomeMusic: The whole soundtrack is great, but this gets special mention. The Limited Edition Arrange Tracks contains an epic arrange of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cGpW03jNjQ Hades Castle.]] Epic yet so faithful to the original, you can even play that song on your console's hard drive before selecting the final stage, [[{{MickeyMousing}} and the song will even finish when the stage is over.]] Improve your score with the PowerOfRock!

Added DiffLines:

** What theme could possibly be epic enough for a fight against something called "[[FinalBoss Tyrannosatan]]"? The game designers went with a variation on "[[Creator/JohannSebastianBach Toccata and Fugue in D Minor]]". Probably not what anyone was expecting, but ''damn'' does it work!

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase:
** The English localization of the first game's 360 port. Some English-speaking fans find it disgustingly bad, others are fine with it considering that most shmup players PlayTheGameSkipTheStory anyway.
** Also in that game, the initial removal of a lot of slowdown. Those who have played the Japanese version felt it really added a lot of FakeDifficulty, whole those who haven't didn't really notice or care. Most of the complaints died down when an update patch altered the slowdown back to Japanese version levels.

* {{Macekre}}: While not to the same extent as Mobile Light Force, there are some very clear changes in the US localization. The characters now have outright horrible clichéd accents, and the controversy practically rivals that of a Jack Thompson lawsuit.
** Actually not ''that'' controversial. While no one will deny that the translation is pretty lame, since story isn't a selling point of the game, it's not that big of a deal.
--> "[[{{Irony}} Like, keep your cool, all right? Don't freak out on me.]]"

** The sequel is no slouch in the music department either. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHfEH-zva1s Christmas Boss themes]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8R5tVNZc72k never sounded so good.]]

* FanDumb: Mainly amongst those who already own the Japanese version, thanks in part to Aksys's [[Creator/StreamlinePictures questionable-quality localization]]. Some say ''[[SeriousBusiness the game never should have been localized.]]''
