* FollowTheLeader: The game doesn't even try hiding its inspirations from the old-school Tomb Raider games. Some may even argue that The Infernal Machine is a better follow-up to Tomb Raider III than The Last Revelation, which came out virtually at the same time.

* SoOkItsAverage: The game wasn't ''bad'', but critical consensus was that it wasn't great, either, particularly due to difficult and imprecise controls. Indy had to stop moving to use the whip, which was also ''incredibly'' slow to use, making it almost useless in a fight and difficult to use on puzzles and obstacles (''especially'' when you had several whip-swings in sequence and they had to be performed quickly). [[spoiler: And the boss battle at the end ''requires'' you to use the whip to injure Marduk.]] Considering the [[Videogame/IndianaJonesAndTheFateOfAtlantis what it followed]], ''Infernal Machine'' was a step back.

* PlotHole: Marduk, in and out. His hostile behavior, incentive, and desire to lure the Babylonians into building a portal for him to invade Earth, a realm whose atmosphere is lethal to him, are never explained nor justified.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Indy chasing after Volodnikov in a Benny Hill-esque fashion in the Nub's Tomb level, much like chasing a chicken. Blocking a path with a mid-sized statue [[Main/TooDumbToLive is all it takes]] to trap Volodnikov.

* BrickJoke: The climax of the Return To Peru level. Indy retrieves an incredibly more valuable and ornated golden idol, much like the one René Belloq stole from him. Due to how elaborate its traps were this time, it is suspected Belloq's idol might have been nothing but a decoy.
* CallBack: The secret level, Return to Peru, is [[Main/ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what it means]]. Indy returns to the location where [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk the first movie began]]. Also serves as [[Main/BookEnds Book Ends]], if and only if the player didn't purchase the Secret Map; in which case, the level will take place after the end, and will feature closing credits.
