* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: This game is full of amazing classical-sounding tracks, but the ones that stand above the rest are the opening theme, Cafe Parisien, C Deck, and the first sinking theme.
* NightmareFuel:
** Rather jarringly, if you try and take the [[spoiler:''Rubaiyat'']] out of the boiler room directly, Vlad catches you, takes it off your hands, and promptly shoots you in the face.
** After you knock out Zeitel at the top of the funnel, you climb back down and get knocked cold by Vlad (notice a theme?) wielding a ''very large'' wrench. You come to, and the ship has already been sinking for over an hour (it's 1:05 AM) -- and you can hear things or people ''splashing into the water around the ship'' as you scramble to complete your mission before the last lifeboat leaves.
** And if you fail to do that in time, you get several minutes aboard the ship simply to run around and contemplate [[KillItWithWater your inevitable fate]].
** The cut-scene of Haderlitz getting electrocuted in the electric bath if you take his ring to Trask to get a reading.
