* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Pump It Up Pro uses the VideoGame/StepMania engine instead of Andamiro's engine. While most of the basic features are in, including counting combos on holds (however, it doesn't do it the same way the main series does however, by counting every 8th note instead of using arbitrary "tickcounts"), one thing missing is Split [=BPM=], or the ability to have two simultaneously playing charts for the same song have different BPM changes and stops. An example can be found with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYoD_GexgyE Phantom Hard and Crazy]].
** The current main series, [=PIU=] Fiesta, changes many things related to how to select songs and options. The core gameplay is still the same, however.
** The recent fork-turned-official [=StepMania 5=] (Pro 2 was based off what was then [=StepMania 4=]) finally adds support for split BPM's in its extended ".ssc" file format. Yay.

Added DiffLines:

* PromotedFanboy: The advent of Pro and Infinity got artists typically associated with ''In the Groove'' and general ''[=StepMania=]'' user-created content into ''Pump'', including DM Ashura and [=Sanxion7=].

* BestBossEver: There are some memorable boss style charts in World Max. Try playing the full version of Deja Vu where the chart can [[LuckBasedMission randomly change]] at two points.

** The timin windows, known for being more lenient than ''DDR''[='=]s. Some feel that they ruin the challenge of trying to get an all-Perfect run, others feel that since the charts basically make ''DDR'' charts look like baby charts, the looser windows are justified. The "Very Hard" judge option exists to address this.

* BrokenBase: The ''Pro'' series. Some players like it because it combines ''Pump'' gameplay with the more professional elements of ''VideoGame/InTheGroove'' (such as a "higher than Perfect" judge rank, the removal of the "buffer hold steps" exploit, and the more extensive command menu) and welcome the addition of ''In The Groove'' musicians, but others [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks don't like its deviation from the traditional formula]] or the limitations of the ''VideoGame/{{StepMania}}'' that are not present in mainline ''Pump'' (such as individual charts having separate tempos) and the removal of a large number of Korean songs.

* GoodBadBugs: The game will give out all Perfects for a hold step as long as you keep it held the entire time, even if you hold down the note in advance. A song where this exploit can be put to use is "Pumptris Quattro"'s [=S17=] chart, which is composed entirely of hold notes, allowing you to sit down on the panels for the duration of the song to obtain [[BreatherLevel the easiest SS ever]].
