* GoodBadBugs: If you kick a mook off a ledge, they die. Regardless of how high up the ledge is. This is particularly helpful in the last fight, when you can take out one of your ambushers incredibly quickly by running up the stairs, kicking him off the landing, and watching him fall three feet to his death.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The Runners. Are they freedom fighters, as they believe, or small-scale terrorists? The story would be the same either way, [[spoiler: and would even have a happier ending if the latter were true. Not for Faith, but for the city.]]

** The lobby shootout at the end of Chapter 8 is fairly tough even with a gun. Doing it with your bare hands will make you scream.


Added DiffLines:

** Opening the door at the end of the parking garage in Chapter 7 before the machine gun Blues get you can be quite difficult, especially since it's a valve door that takes time to open.

** First-Person SheFu is '''''hard,''''' and unwanted.

** First-Person SheFu is '''''hard,''''' and unwanted. Disarming is particularly difficult, especially more armored Blues who need to be taken from behind.



* ThatOneBoss: [[Spoiler: Celeste]], the "white runner" at the end of Chapter 7. Disarming her before she can headbutt you away is a major hassle that will likely take a few tries. Many consider it one of the most annoying points in the game.

** The rest of the soundtrack easily qualifies, fitting the game's clean, minimalistic, futurist visual atmosphere perfectly. Particularly the main menu theme.



* BrokenBase: The animated cutscenes. Some like the distinct style and think it adds to the atmosphere, others think it's a waste whent he game's engine looks so good and that it's a jarring shift in art style.
** According to the developers, Catalyst will (most likely, since they haven't made a final decision) reboot the entire franchise, meaning that the first game will be considered non-canon. The lack of a final decision still hasn't stopped fans from debating whether a reboot will make the entire original game pointless, while others believe that the plot was weak and should be forgotten.

* UncannyValley: Faith's animations look fine from a first-person perspective. But if you install a mod to play it in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3VnWYt9flM third-person]]...
** It's almost as if the game wasn't supposed to be seen outside of first person. Strange how that works...
* VindicatedByHistory: When the game initially came out, reviews were mixed and lukewarm. Sales weren't of EA's liking. Now the game is developing into a CultClassic and fans are eagerly anticipating the sequel.

* NightmareFuel: When Faith falls to her death. It's accompanied by ''very'' realistic sounds and cinematics, to the point of inducing vertigo. Made even worse if the player is wearing the OculusRift, as they would literally see themselves falling to their death as opposed to just watching the monitor.

** Minor villain Ropeburn is [[CutsceneBoss even less climactic]], although he makes up for it in [[PressXToNotDie sheer frustration potential]]. To elaborate, Ropeburn charges at you with a metal pipe, and you are supposed to press the disarm button as it turns red (due to Runner Vision). The problem is that you need to actually press the disarm button quite early (just as the pipe starts to turn red). However, the frustration potential is totally subverted when you realize that the game doesn't punish you for pressing disarm before you're supposed to, so you can get through this scene 100% of the time by simply mashing the disarm button.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: With {{Portal}}, not that that's a bad thing though. Short game with complaints about said shortness, modernist white spaces, high velocity first person movement, themes of control and rebellion, female non-white protagonist, a song called "Still Alive".



* TheScrappy: [[spoiler: Jacknife for being a pretty generic, cocky villain.]]
