* ItsEasySoItSucks: This was the reaction some review outlets had to the game, with a bit of HypeBacklash mixed in. On the other hand, some review outlets ''praised'' it for its easiness, since that let the players soak in the very pretty ride at their own pace.
* NintendoHard: The second game REALLY steps up the difficulty, getting close to BulletHell later on.
