** There is some issue over the rumored Nintendo exclusivity deal, either perm. or temporarily so. Either fans are glad to see it as they A, plan to buy Nintendo and feel that it may be a case like Videogame/Bayonetta2 where Nintendo helped get the project going, or annoyed that the long awaited game is locked to a single platform for a long period of time, be it a year or forever.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Chip Cheezum and General Ironicus' Let's Play of the game jokingly suggests that, as a result of his tendency to [[UseYourHead Use His Head]], Double H was brain-damaged well before he was ever introduced to that nasty-ass machine the [=DomZ=] had him in. They further theorize that he was given a copy of the childrens' edition of Carlson and Peeters (to accommodate his impaired thinking), which is also a coloring book. He colors in one page every night, with just the biggest grin on his retarded face. (In-game, he's [[CloudCuckoolander goofy]], but still intelligent.)
** FridgeBrilliance: Watch him during combat, then watch him again VERY closely while he is breaking barriers for you. You will notice that he uses an energy shield.

* BrokenBase: The announcement that the sequel is in pre-production. On the one hand, fans are ecstatic that a sequel is finally being greenlit. On the other, several have been enraged that it's taken the company so long, especially after teasing the project for more than a decade with concept art and even in their most successful titles. With so many Assassin titles coming out every year and games like Watchdogs that are assured successes, it's understandable fans would be miffed that the franchise starring a female character gets put off to the side. The former camp is relieved the game is coming out at all, wait or no wait.



* DisappointingLastLevel: Depends on who you ask. The endgame does feel rather rushed and introduces some [[spoiler: inexplicable superpowers]] with little more than some vague foreshadowing.
* EarWorm: From the background track, "Propaganda". The minigames also feature the track "Spanish Bar", A.K.A. "Fun and Mini-Games", which is an easy contender for the title of Most Earwormy BGM.

* CompleteMonster: [[GeneralRipper General Kehck]] is the leader of the Alpha Sections, a military organization that, under the guise of benevolent saviors, aides the [=DomZ=] aliens in their attempt to harvest everyone on the planet, just as they have done across hundreds of worlds. Those abducted are transported to the moon where they are [[VampiricDraining sucked dry of all their fluids]] so that [[TheDragon Kehck]] and his master, [[BigBad the DomZ Priest]], [[ImmortalityImmorality may live longer]]. Throughout the game Kehck uses his PropagandaMachine to urge the people of Hillys to enlist in the Alpha Sections, knowing full well that they'll be slowly converted by the [=DomZ=] into monstrous grotesqueries to act as his army of mooks. When the protagonist, Jade, manages to start exposing the truth about the Alpha Sections, Kehck responds by [[WouldHurtAChild kidnapping the war orphans Jade's adopted for he and his boss to feed on]]. He also hooks up Jade's ParentalSubstitute, Pey'j, into a torture machine for three weeks, which eventually ends up killing him. Unlike the [=DomZ=] Priest who needs to feed on planets to survive, or the other Alpha Sections soldiers who have been turned into monsters, Kehck is completely human and isn't in any danger of dying. He's just a selfish CardCarryingVillain who wants to live a little bit longer and is willing to wipe out entire planets to do so.

* NeedsMoreLove: Was originally going to be a trilogy, but now Ubisoft is pondering, yet has not 100% committed to the sequel yet, pending sales of the HD version... so buy the HD version now!
