* HilariousInHindsight: Three years after this game released, a certain new IP called ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} which was a cartoon-y shooter that was in pretty much in the same vein as this game during it's Overstrike days came out..and what do you know, it did great and was well recieved. Granted it was an FPS but that still didn't negate the fact that it's fun personality attracted audiences which is something this game could've gotten if EA didn't try to follow the treads of the time.

* SoOkayItsAverage: The general reaction to the game, from reviewers and players alike. They say while it's competent, and the Xenotech weapons have that trademark Insomniac craziness, the rest of the game felt bland, and some aspects, like some of the more far-out bosses, clashed with the more realistic style. Many who tracked the original game before the restyle said that had the game stuck to its guns, it would've been far more enjoyable.

* InternetBackdraft: Most people did ''not'' take the change from ''Overstrike'' to ''Fuse'' very well. Especially since the reason they gave was that their focus group of ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty''-playing 12 year olds said that the original game looked too "kiddy" and demanded a more realistic style.

** Can you blame them? The original concept was fun, over the top and had personality behind it. This just feels like another in the dime a dozen CallOfDuty shooters.
** Again, YMMV, given the game's complete and utter lack of any actual resemblance to any ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' game out there beyond "being a shooter."

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Most reactions to the game being changed from the stylized ''Overstrike'' to the more generic ''Fuse'' was this.
