Added DiffLines:

* ScrappyMechanic: The classic-styled controls didn't age all that well. Luckily, a patch for the ''Rare Replay'' port added an option to bring it to a more modern standard.

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Ivana is female, but not many players remember this. As a bear with no visible reproductive parts, it would be understandably hard to tell if it wasn't for her name.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory[=/=]InterfaceScrew: When you rest your reticle over an enemy, they flash green (the color usually associated with allies, meaning ''do not shoot them''), while Tribals flash red (meaning enemy, so blast away!).



* NightmareFuel: On the surface it seems alright for a younger audience...then you get into the giant mutant zombie bugs, the implied wholesale butchering of Tribal families, the ''zombified planet'', the level spent almost entirely [[WombLevel traversing a colossal worm's digestive tract]], the giant praying mantis twins boss, and oh yeah, [[LudicrousGibs the showers of splattering blood]] and [[VideogameCrueltyPotential the screams of the dying and the decapitations (including the ability to decapitate things that look like teddy bears)]].

** TakeThatScrappy: The Tribals' heads are just as detachable as the Drones'.
*** And if you collect their heads when they are 'accidentally' killed, it still counts as a "rescue". [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything Which means they EXPECTED the player to either screw up or voluntarily kill them.]]



* ThatOneBoss: Ok, so Mizar's the final boss, he's supposed to be hard. But still, the second battle against him is nightmarishly difficult given the standard set by the other bosses, largely due to his enormously cheap electric jump rope of doom, which usually got combined with tricky camera angles. Worse, the first time you fight him, he's a complete pushover, leading to lowered expectations for the second fight.
** Why is this electric jump rope so bad? If it so much as grazes you, you lose 1/8 of your health.
** To add insult to injury, Mizar has an interesting AI pattern...[[spoiler:the goddamn bastard doesn't ''have'' an AI pattern, meaning that you might get fried by repeated electric jump ropes]].
** It's worse. There's two forms to this battle, and that electric jump rope is a staple move.
** See also the Eschebone Mantises. They both have sequential and relatively small weak points, the battlefield is dark, they have a lot more variety to their attacks than any boss besides the Mizar rematch, and did we mention you have to keep track of two at once for most of the fight?

But still, the second battle against him is nightmarishly very difficult given the standard set by the other bosses, largely due to his enormously cheap electric jump rope of doom, doom (which can inflict enough damage to wipe out 1/8 of your maximized health), which usually got combined with tricky camera angles. Worse, the first time you fight him, he's a complete pushover, leading to lowered expectations for the second fight.
