* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Several of the levels seem to be homages to ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. Or maybe just ripoffs. It's hard to tell.
** Not to mention the fact that the Seeker starships resemble [[Series/BabylonFive Minbari war cruisers]] - or at least what said war cruisers would look like [[StandardHumanSpaceship if the Minbari designed their ships according to ISO specifications]].

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Averted. Punching out Bud, the belligerent space marine, instead of shooting him lethally, still leads to the cutscene of Bud being shot fatally. Whoops?

* TheChainsOfCommanding: Gideon isn't very comfortable with the idea of being worshipped. Most of the time he seems to avoid talking about it.
** As one of the Aurelians says, "It is not easy being God."



* CreatorKiller: This game's bombing almost led to the demise of Majesco. It basically killed their long-term plans to rival companies such as {{Ubisoft}} and is why they push more casual titles such as ''VideoGame/CookingMama'' today.

* StillbornFranchise: It was intended to be a trilogy on consoles with a spin-off for the PSP. The poor reception of the original game put a stop to any further prospects, as well as the million-dollar contest promoting it.

* NeverMyFault: The Cockney-accented marine and his pals in the beginning of the game, who instigate a bar fight and later try to shoot Gideon's brother. Thankfully in the second instance (which ends with the Cockney guy being killed by Gideon himself after he starts shooting at Ethan on the firing range) the MPs who respond are ReasonableAuthorityFigures who reviewed the security tapes before they arrived and saw that it was a clear case of self defense.

** Also a HilariousInHindsight moment - if you turn on the subtitles, you see his name is Baraka Bahma. [[BarackObama Say that quickly...]]

* SuperpowerLottery: Gideon Wyeth, has, once he unlocks all his powers, SuperStrength, a HealingFactor, BulletTime when using his improbable dodging skills, [[MindOverMatter telekinesis]], [[BarrierWarrior various]] [[AttackReflector forcefields]] (which are [[NighInvulnerability impenetrable]] and harm any enemy that touches them), [[ShockAndAwe electromagnetic bolts]], [[PersonOfMassDestruction massive, devastating radial energy explosions]], [[FlashStep gravimetric teleportation]], [[TimeMaster intertial damping]], [[BeamSpam dozens of exploding ice-missiles]], and [[AnIcePerson cryokinesis]]. He's also skilled at piloting, marksmenship, and hand-to-hand combat. And, for his last trick, he can create
[[UnrealisticBlackHole controlled singularity]] that can kill a PhysicalGod.

* ShootTheShaggyDogStory: Unless the now-nonexistent sequel was going to involve bringing humanity back from the dead or [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong setting right what once went wrong]], the story begins with humanity being almost totally wiped out without warning or a chance of survival, only three humans surviving, and the race that did it has deceived almost everyone else in the galaxy into thinking they're a benevolent superpower. You have to choose to leave either your fiance or brother behind to die, but don't let the choice get to you too much--he/she will die a totally unnecessary death right in front of you halfway through the game anyway! The only friendly aliens you meet link up with you and make it back to their homeworld, where you should be safe...oh wait, a Seeker ship pops up out of nowhere right next to the Aurelian homeworld, and starts opening fire on an Aurelian ship without warning or provocation. Hmmm...no, no diplomatic consequences there. So you are part of a boarding party to survive by taking over the Seeker ship--which you do. Except that it's rigged to blow. Later, the two Aurelian characters you've been bonding with die, too, either by betrayal by their own people or something similar. So, a newly introduced Aurelian takes you and the only other surviving human in the universe to the galactic senate to accuse and prove the Seekers guilty of xenocide--until a humanoid abomination pops up out of nowhere, happens to be what's left of your brother or fiance (the one you left behind), and starts wrecking the place. You seem to win, except that you get sucked into your own singularity and end up on a barren, snowy planet. You slowly freeze to death until a new alien comes up and says, "Come, human. There is much to be done." The end. Hilariously, the main character lampshades the nature of the story early on, in 'why did I bother to get out of bed today?' fashion.
