YMMV: Rise of the Robots
  • Game Breaker - Full of these.
  • Hype Backlash: Play It Bogart said it best.
    "Unless you were living under a rock in 1994, there was no way you couldn't have heard of this game! [...] With this much hype, how could it possibly fail? Oi, you'd be surprised."
    • It's pretty funny too. There was word that the game would be adapted into books, comics, a television series, and even a movie! Have you figured out why you have never heard of Rise of the Robots outside of the two video games yet?
  • Porting Disaster - Considering this game was all about the graphics and music, there were some platforms that shouldn't have even been considered for a port. In particular, the handheld versions featured ugly, blotchy sprites on top of the terrible gameplay.
    • To give some examples, the Super Nintendo version had a great techno track and graphics, but lacking everywhere else. The genesis version had it worse thanks to it's music quality. The Amiga version, while great graphically, has no music at all.
    • The PC version of Rise 2 was more robust. The PS1 port lacked some graphical details.
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel - Rise 2: Resurrection had a much wider range of characters, more moves for each, somewhat improved controls, and a number of other fixes. It was actually playable. On top of that, you can freely pick your characters this time. Unfortunately, it was still a very dull, uninteresting fighter, and wasn't good enough to get over the bad memories of the first.
