The mindfuck effect of the original is lost because it starts out dark right from the beginning, and sort of hangs there for the first two acts until everyone but Natsuki dies.

"And then Arthur was a zombie" doesn't sound quite as funny, so Arthur manages to hold his own against our zombified protagonist to the bitter end.

If instead of Always Murder, the Ace Attorney series became a half-hour Judge Judy/The People's Court-style show handling nothing but the most outrageous small claims court cases.

Someone who played way too much Hatoful Boyfriend and Angels With Scaly Wings thought it would be a funny idea to have the player dating the kataphrakts instead of their pilots. The human and Martian characters are relegated to NPCs.

While the car models are pretty well-sculpted, the game suffers from one fault: itís boring. Every time you enter a race, you have to play a bunch of cards in just the right order to not crash. There are millions of possible card combinations, making it pure luck. Overall, both critics and Gran Turismo fans agree that a fast-paced real time game doesnít translate well to a tabletop game.

The birds and pigs are anthropromophized a la Star Fox. The birds use cannons instead of themselves and the pigs have more of a fighting chance. The cannons work realistically. The island setting is changed to a rural South setting. The plot is not as bare-bones, but the backbone of the plot is still there.

It goes one of two ways. It's either a shitty survival horror game where the goal is to rescue Rosebud while Kane's after your ass or an introspective decision-based adventure where no matter what happens, you feel like a piece of crap in the end.

It's a lot easier to fall to the bottom of the mountain because you have to do all that climbing in 3D, but it's more hilarious to watch. At least you don't have to hear the same story quotes over and over when you climb.
