* DevilInPlainSight: In his introduction Statos says plainly that in a civilized world he would be the only god. Then when it becomes clear in the next mission that one of the gods is plotting against the others nobody even considers he might be involved. It turns out he was behind it all along.

''Sacrifice'' is a unique breed of RTS game for PC. Whereas instead of the player utilizing an isometric view, the game uses a 3rd person view behind the player avatar. This game is about battling wizards, each players gathers souls to summon creatures, and then duke it out with other wizards, also supplemented with various spells. Their goal, based on the name, is to find an enemy altar, desecrate it by performing a sacrificial ritual on that altar, and then kill the enemy wizard one last time to banish him.

Added DiffLines:

In each battle, the player gathers souls to summon creatures, and then duke it out with other wizards, also supplemented with various spells. Their goal, based on the name, is to find an enemy altar, desecrate it by performing a sacrificial ritual on that altar, and then kill the enemy wizard one last time to banish him.

Where many RTS games give the player a high-level isometric view of the battlefield, and [[NonEntityGeneral may be vague about where the player character is in all this]], the player's wizard avatar is specifically located and is viewed and controlled in the manner of a ThirdPersonShooter. The main battlefield view is locked to the wizard's location and the wizard has limited ability to affect things outside their immediate vicinity.


Added DiffLines:

* BaselessMission: One of Stratos's missions sends the wizard on a surreptitious raid into another god's territory, with no altar and and no access to the features the altar usually provides.


Added DiffLines:

* FreeRotatingCamera: The main camera view can be rotated, tilted and zoomed however the player chooses (but remains fixed to the wizard's location).

Most interestingly is that the main plot favors multiple playthroughs- at the beginning of each mission you are told to pick one of the five gods as your patron for that mission, and they will bless you with rewards. The game has a total of five different endings and a staggering ''45'' different levels for each god, inviting a lot of replayability.

''Sacrifice'' did not gain wide popularity, but garnered cult status due to it's incredibly unique gameplay, excellent story and voice acting and out of this world character designs, enough that it received a Steam release in 2000 and a later release on GOG as well.

* DarkIsNotEvil: Zig-zagged... but not on Charnel. Pyro's introduction say that a lot of people is ''definitely'' going to label him the 'God of Destruction and Chaos' (and his personality doesn't help), but those aren't entirely true, Pyro actually encompasses some other positive traits than pure destruction and chaos, one of the things he's most proud of is progress.

However, his attitude makes him more or less confirming that he's the bad guy.

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: One of the possible endings of the [[spoiler:Stratos campaign: Eldred got fed up with Stratos' overall trickery even if he's successful and decided to leave on a journey. Stratos WAS disappointed, but since Eldred has helped him secure his supremacy, he told Eldred that he's always welcome to come back to the realm where he's the only God, should Eldred change his mind.]]
