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

* {{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.

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

* SpecialEffectsFailure: [[spoiler:Don wearing Harriet's bloody scalp]] would be considerably more disturbing if it weren't so obviously [[spoiler: just some generic cheap curly grandma wig.]]

* 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]]''.
