* MagnumOpus: Roberta Williams claims this to be her greatest work. While some fans agree with her, especially from a technological standpoint, while others think that title should go to another game, specifically ''[[VideoGame/KingsQuestVIHeirTodayGoneTomorrow King's Quest VI]]''.

** Also the various death sequences in Chapter 7. Even though the demon is yet another example of ConspicuousCGI that has not aged well, the makeup effects involved in Adrienne's gory deaths (especially one in which the demon ''pulls her face apart'') are quite nauseatingly realistic.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Bowdlerize}}: The Japanese Saturn port heavily edits the death scene flashbacks Adrienne sees at certain parts of the game, usually removing any GrossUpCloseUp shots of Carno's wives being killed. It also skips the RapeAsDrama scene that starts chapter 4, instead starting with Adrienne crying on her bed after the ordeal.

* PortingDisaster: The game was re-released in Japan for the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn two years later under the name ''Phantasm''. The script was fully translated and dubbed into Japanese, had a remastered soundtrack, included a difficulty setting, and could hold more save files. However, given the hardware limitations, the FMV sequences take quite a drop in video quality, giving the characters a ghostly blue outline and making it hard to see what you're doing. The game also had ''more discs than the PC version'', with 8 discs compared to the already large 7 discs the PC version came with. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And all of the Gregorian chanting was replaced with a stock ScareChord track.]]

Then there's the fact that some of the death scenes were either cut or heavily edited to censor the gore.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Strangely enough, the mounted fish in the real estate agent's office, thanks to LetsPlay/{{Slowbeef}} and [[LetsPlay/GamingGarbage Lowtax's]] riffing of the game.

* {{Padding}}: Unless there's a special event or action involved, clicking on chairs, beds, and mirrors often triggers a pointless FMV of Adrienne sitting down and relaxing or combing her hair or checking her makeup. You can even make her go to the bathroom or get a snack or a drink! To be fair, you can skip any FMV with a click and it was likely intended less as padding and more to make the game feel as interactive as possible, but it does get really funny when [[spoiler:you can make Adrienne calmly look herself over in a mirror in a hidden room right after she has a vision of Carno breaking one of his wives' necks with a device still in the room.]]
