** Not quite game breaking, but the original PlaystationPortable release was misprogrammed so that allies' abilities never activated.

** That said, Blood Drain is pretty much ''all'' they've got. The Vampire Lords, on the other hand... they have Charm (destroys all Skulls and gains life equal to the number of Skulls destroyed) and Bat Swarm (halves your defense and causes you to take 5 damage per turn for 3 turns) in addition to the aforementioned Blood Drain and Vampire Fangs. Good luck, ''you'll need it.''

Good luck, ''you'll need it.''



* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: As a nod to everyone who made this complaint about previous games, the devs named one of the achievements "Cheating AI!" - earned by being defeated by an enemy on its first turn.

* GuestStarPartyMember: The soldier Drayle joins you, briefly, once you rescue him in the dungeon. As soon as you get someplace remotely safe, however, he takes off.

** On the other hand, clearing red gems (whether that's done by you or the Yeti) will actually hurt it. But it will be healed anytime blue gems are cleared. To make matters worse, it has a spell called "Ice Breath" which changes 14 random gems to Blue Gems -- frequently causing it to get several extra turns and fully heal itself. The battle can ''easily'' end up wearing on until the Crushing Kill.
** The Arch-Lich is also stupidly annoying, thanks to its absurdly high Morale stat making it near-impossible to cast spells. Putting ''every single skill point into your Intelligence stat'' is the ''only'' way you'll have a reasonable chance of using your spells, so if your play style relies on them, '''''you're screwed eight ways to Sunday, no questions asked'''''.

Kill. (Though it's just as prone to ArtificialStupidity as anything else in the game, so just because it ''can'' use Crushing Kill, that doesn't mean it ''will''.)

* SpoilerOpening: When beginning a new game of ''[=PQ2=]'', you are told the story of a Paladin, a blonde elf woman rendered in stained glass, who disappeared a long time ago while trying to find the source of the evil inside a tower near her hometown. [[spoiler:Get all the way to the end, and you have to fight that self-same woman - who is the MissingMom of your companion Laurella.]]

* BraggingRightsReward: Beating the {{Bonus Boss}}es in the handheld and retail PC versions gives you a rather insignificant amount of gold and XP, considering the lengths you'll need to go to in order to defeat them. You don't even get the achievements of the XboxLiveArcade, [=iOS=], or {{Steam}} versions.

* WarringNatures: One of the possible party members was [[{{MeaningFulName}} Cyrus Darkhunter]], half-elf, half-human and not really welcomed by either race.

* DeadpanSnarker: The player character is often this, especially when dealing with Drong, Serephine, or some of the more silly quests they're asked to go on.
