* OffModel: A rather weird thing happens to Mag's white jacket suddenly disappearing during animated cutscenes. By the next normal cutscene, it's back there on him. [[CoversAlwaysLie Why, the boxart on this page also suffers from this.]]
** That's because in ''World of Sacred Device'', the game from which the cut scenes came from, he never wore the adventurer jacket. The jacket was added in ''Far Off Promise'', from which most of the character models came from.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: The first half is really bad with this, especially towards the end.
** Eugene's introduction is greatly trimmed down, including the scene where he initially believes Linear to be an offering to him and how he succeeds in angering and accidentally dismissing Mag, downplaying those elements.
** [[spoiler: Inspecting the instruments in Eugene's command room will reveal that the reason the ship is exploding is because Mag kicked a grenade in the engine room, a {{Noodle Incident}} that was explicitly shown in the original game.]]
** Crossing into {{Adaptation Induced Plot Hole}}, the escape sequence was also severely trimmed. [[spoiler:The port removes the sequence where Mag and Linear are separated from the rest of the party, explaining how the others got back to the seaplane and why Mag and Linear needed to find a different escape route.]]

And yes, to add insult to the injury, it's a temporary PointOfNoReturn till you [[spoiler:save Linear]].

* FlavorText: As in the original games. It varies depending on the part; During part 1, Mag comments on whatever he's looking at. During part 2, the flavor text and conversations with the townsfolk are instead for whoever is in front of the party.



* GlobalAirship: Mag's Sea Otter Seaplane can get him to anywhere in the first portion. It gets forgotten after the second portion comes in.
