* PortingDisaster: The console versions have many graphical glitches, sound cutouts, and {{Game Breaking Bug}}s.

The Wii U port is often seen as the lesser "porting disaster" by comparison though simply for slightly better lighting effects and being the first console port to include all DLC on disc years before the Deathinitive Edition, though it still has the screen tearing and glitches present in the other older releases.

* DemonicSpiders: The Liches carry an urn which they can use for attacking, and they also use them to spread ashes that can [[MookMaker summon an army of skeletons]].
** The Maelstroms are even worse. These guys launch fireballs at you which cause a lot of damage. And before you can get out of the way, [[CycleOfHurting you'll be hit by the next one]].
** For an example of this enemy type that you encounter ''much'' earlier in the game, try the Construct Champions, especially the corrupted ones. These monsters have hard hitting attacks which can decimate your health.

* NightmareFuel: The scene where Death is first pulled into the tree of Death by Corruption, Dear God.
** Straight after that, you're greeted by ''something'' with [[GlowingEyesOfDoom glowing yellow eyes and a glowing yellow mouth]]. Say hello to [[BigBad Abaslom]].

* PortingDisaster: The 360 and PS3 versions have many graphical glitches, sound cutouts, and {{Game Breaking Bug}}s.
** PolishedPort: The Wii U version has the DLC packed on the disc, and also apparently allows you to use anything in your inventory (like switch to unequipped weapons) on the fly.

** Getting Health Steal and Wrath Steal on Possessed Weapons raised produces insane results where the you'll gain a percentage of the damage you do back as health and wrath, up to 30%. This is broken beyond belief. Death with a build focusing on critical hit rates and physical damage can easily regain his health faster than enemies can cut it down and gain Wrath back as quickly as he spends it

Or focus on Arcane Critical Hits chance and Arcane Critical Damage for similar results with Wrath skills, which means Death can just stand back while enemies are typically too busy to bother him and only occasionally attack them to quickly restore his Health and Wrath, which even with a build focusing Wrath damage will still easily restore both with a quick melee attack.

** Stains of Heresy, which plays during the boss fight with [[spoiler: the Archon]], also stands out as a very impressive orchestral piece.

* ThatOneLevel: The Earth level. The game effectively [[UnexpectedGameplayChange changes to a third-person shooter]] where you have to fight the Swarm and the Suffering, everything is grey (as opposed to the more interesting designs of everywhere else in the game), and if you don't like using the guns, tough: the Swarm are too many to feasibly use melee against. Also, due to the game mechanic that shooting things with a gun (such as Redemption or a demonic weapon) = getting Wrath, you'll end up with all the Wrath you could possibly want, which is useless in that level, and virtually no health.

* FridgeBrillance / FridgeHorror: [[spoiler: Absalom states that Death reviving humanity would just get them wiped out again by the demons, and judging from the Destroyer having control of the Well of Souls in the original game, it appears that Death's actions might have stopped the destruction of creation, but also [[NiceJobBreakingItHero given the Destroyer access to the Well of Souls and allowed him to use at a source of power]].]]

* GameBreaker: Nothing immediately breaks the game like in the original, but focusing on increasing Death's critical hit rate with certain items while getting a Possessed Weapon and focus on giving a high critical hit rate with Critical Damage, Critical Reaper Energy, and Critical Wrath, and make sure it's something with a high attack rate, you'll be able to easily fight through the game with it and regain any health and Wrath and you lose. Use the Unstoppable ability enough points into and it can give Death back all the Wrath used to cast it, get the Abyssal Armor, you can have a 100% critical hit rate.
** Getting Health Steal and Wrath Steal on Possessed Weapons raised, not even going all the way, produces insane results where the you'll gain a percentage of the damage you do back as health and wrath, mean you can mostly spam Wrath abilities and barely need to worry about dodging.
