YMMV / Dark Void

  • Awesome Music: Bear McCreary set out to give "Indiana Jones with a Jet Pack" a soundtrack worthy of the theme. He succeeded!
  • Dancing Bear: The best parts of this game are easily whenever you make use of the jetpack, so you'll find yourself using it even when you don't need to.
  • Fridge Logic: According to the legend told by Atem, The Watchers, who originally ruled over mankind as gods when humans were primitive, gave civilization and knowledge to them. Man's numbers grew out of the Watchers' control, and humans cast the Watchers out of Earth and trapped them in the void. The Watchers have found a way to return and plan on re-enslaving Earth...do they not realize that in 1938, the human population would have been even larger and civilization even more advanced than the last time we kicked their asses?
    • Maybe they thought they would beat us with their superior technology.
    • It's the War. They're helping the fascists build an advanced army so that when they win the war, the Watchers would have a new empire already set up, with the leaders replaced by the shape-shifting Elder Watchers.
  • More Popular Spinoff: The game was completely overshadowed by Dark Void Zero, which was only supposed to be promoting Dark Void. Probably because Zero used old-school ideas that just plain work, instead of trying to mash together two ideas that don't work. The same exact thing also happened to the new Bionic Commando and its promo game, Bionic Commando Rearmed. Guess which one now has a sequel.
  • So Okay, It's Average: The execution.
