That's a HORRIBLE adaptation!:

At first, it isn't that awful, just another mediocre children's anime adaptation of a popular video game. And Henry Hatsworth's "adorable" niece added for kid appeal, isn't that annoying. But halfway through the production process, the primary director's wife runs off with another man, and he orders rewrites to the remaining episodes that make them Darker and Edgier, much to the detriment of the fun atmosphere. He's fired, and a Happy Ending sloppily reattached to the final episode.

I'm not sure how singing teaches people to accept Communism, but it was catchy. Also, the space battles are pretty cool, but does that mecha have to have stars all over it? No wonder it's so rare!

EDIT: Mama, I just killed a thread,

Put a post against it's head,

Pressed on "Post" now it's dead.

Mama, the thread has just begun,

But now I've gone and thrown it all away.

MAMA! Oooooo!

Didn't mean to make you cry!

If this thread doesn't have a new post by tomorrow,

Carry on, Carry on.

As if nothing really matters.

It is considered the greatest game of the year for it's multiplayer, different gameplay types and the high amount of contents.

It's fandom don't hype it to god-like levels ironically enough.

The graphics are prettier, and the puzzles make a bit more sense. However, the story is completely linear, disappointing fans of the original.

Up to a point, it's a fairly faithful adaptation, with some freaky scary artwork and okay spooky music. But the adaptation takes what could be considered a hint of incest if you turned your head sideways and squinted into a full blown Not Blood Related romantic subplot, which quickly takes over the "good ending" plot path. Many players feel the need to scrub their skins with steel wool afterwards.

And, as long as we're being seasonal...

It's pretty much just a live-action adaptation of the anime. The shadow realm is done away with and a bunch of cheesy special effects are added. It manages to turn the Narm Charm of the original Up to Eleven. The fandom has a small minority calling it an instant classic, but most are indifferent due to the way the rules of the game are ignored and how low-budget the adaptation is.

Multiplayer is twice as fun, albeit much much much much much harder, the story is still as "realistic" as ever, ZUN makes the new character designs, yet it still sticks to it's roots, with the loud and confusing battles we all love about the series.

You play as Napoleon, shooting dogs at animals and humans while avoiding the humans' shotguns shots. The game is incredibly buggy and has hardly anything to do with the plot of the book. It's made by LJN.

How the Digital World exists prior to the invention of artificial electricity and the subsequent technology needed to create Digimon is never explained in a satisfactory manner. Also, Lucca is the leader, because she's the one with goggles.

Since we inadvertantly skipped over a couple, I'll also do Romeo & Juliet: The Tabletop Roleplaying Game.

It's a licensed tie-in to the latest movie remake by one of the the "generic rules set" game companies. It has a stripped-down version of the rules, character sheets for the main cast, and an excellent "Renaissance Italy" campaign background section. Unfortunately, the movie stunk on ice, so film fans aren't interested, and the regular gamers already have a copy of the rules, thanks very much. Most sales go to university collections of Shakespeare related memorabilia.

A Slice of Life comedy with a musical number in the middle of every episode (think Phineas and Ferb). Miku is voiced by Monica Rial, Rin and Len = Laura Bailey, Luka = Wendee Lee, and the rest is up to you cause I'm not putting any more thought into this than I need to. All the songs are dubbed, thankfully.

Puni Plush really doesn't work in LEGO. The setlist is only a couple of songs and most of the gameplay is playing a cake-eating minigame.

It is so badass that everyone got an orgasm watching it that a actually good remake of the game was made complete with glitches from the original retooled into legitimate gameplay elements. The fans of the original whined endlessly about it though.
