Added DiffLines:

* TearJerker: The series pulls no punches when it comes to the [[CrapsackWorld bleakness of its own story]]. Most of the endings from both games tend to end on either a [[BittersweetEnding bitter]] or [[DownerEnding downer]] note, with the most notable examples being Burn's endings from both games, Wendy's ending from 2012, Keith's ending from 2012, Sonia's ending from the first game, Might's ending from 2012, Carlo's ending from 2012, Regina's ending from 2012, and Genshin's ending from 2012.

* RootingForTheEmpire: NOA gets a good proportion of fan-love and sympathy. Not really surprising for the faction analogous to {{Magneto}}, plus all of NOA's loyal members are sympathetic characters to some degree, and it doesn't help that Anti-NOA doesn't seem to have a competing plan to improve Psychiccers' [[FantasticRacism lot]]. The OVA in particular leaves Burn looking LawfulStupid and Keith lounging comfortably in StrawManHasAPoint territory. [[EvilIsSexy Having the ladies to be]] MsFanservice (and still sympathetic) also helps a lot, not to mention that Wong's Army proved to be even more evil and unsympathetic than they are.

** [[TheBrute Gudeath]], a [[GravitySucks gravity-controlling]] SocialDarwinist BloodKnight whose only reason for joining Wong is because he likes murdering people, taking joy in destroying his victims' loved ones and prolonging their agony as much as possible, and being part of the Army gives him the chance to do that without consequences.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The game has kickass soundtrack, especially the first game's BGM of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_g0xyJn0I8 Burn]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGIL5aBQCWE Sonia]]. The opening song is also done by Hironobu Kageyama, one of Music/JAMProject's founding members.

* EvenBetterSequel: ''Psychic Force 2012'' further fleshed out the mechanics of the first game and introduced some new ones while being a balanced fighting game. When it came to the home ports' localization, Creator/{{Acclaim}} pretty much learned their lesson and spared everybody from the laughably bad English dubbing of the first game and stuck to the Japanese voices with subtitles instead.
** PolishedPort: ''Psychic Force 2'', the [=PlayStation=] version of ''Psychic Force 2012'', did suffer from a bit of visual downgrade compared to the Dreamcast version, but it does have much more features and game modes to play around with, including one where you can level-up the characters and give them custom movesets by using moves from the other characters. ''Psychic Force 2'' even brings back Sonia, Brad, and Genma from the first game.
* FoeYay / HoYay: Burn spends 2010 obsessing about Keith; Keith spends 2012 sighing about Burn. In their endings they go all in for [[SayMyName crying out each other's names]] and touchingly [[spoiler:[[DiedInYourArmsTonight dying in each other's arms]]]], the OVA has Keith turning dewy eyes to the camera and saying Burn's name breathlessly ''as the very first scene''... It's no wonder they're one of the easier pairings to find {{doujinshi}} for (although Brad/Wong is surprisingly common, too).

* CultClassic: While not commercially successful at the time of its initial release, the series did manage to gain a strong cult fanbase.



* EvilIsSexy: Subverted. The MsFanservice in this game (Sonia and Regina) are aligned to NOA, who are one of the main villain factions. However, they're not as bad as Wong's Army, which lacks females on top being utterly evil.

* EnsembleDarkhorse - Shiori. Although she's seen as the DamselInDistress from within Genshin's story in 2012, it's highly implied that she was gonna take a much active role in the storyline after [[spoiler:Genshin's death]] had the series continued. Aside from that, there's plenty of fan art of Shiori throughout the Internet, showing that she has plenty of fans who wants to see her as a playable character from within the next Psychic Force game.
