YMMV / Gemini Rue

  • Anticlimax Boss: The Director is quickly and unceremoniously shot dead by Azriel. If you're quick, he'll be dead before he even turns to face you. At least you get his pet psycho to face first.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: "Sometimes our patients don't turn the way we want them to, you being an extreme case. Some of them just fail to function as their programmed roles, and you know why? I think it's because there's one section of the human psyche that we just have never deconstructed in our rehabilitation process. We call it the conscience."
  • Critical Research Failure: Barracus is shown as a world with cities, rain, mines, and reasonably Earthlike gravity and atmosphere. It's also described in the terminals as a gas giant.
  • Fridge Brilliance: All the skills learned as Delta Six, then get used by Azrael Odin to solve problems in the field.
  • Fridge Horror: In the end, Azriel elopes together with Sayuri towards a brand new life, blowing up the prison in the process. So far, so good. Too bad he may have had his conscience erased (the Director did say that the work was not finished, but he does not say how much was done) not long before.
    • Azriel did go back for Sayrui even though he had absolutely no memory of her or any reason to go. That's not something someone without a conscience would do.
  • Guide Dang It: Not as prevalent as in many adventure games, but certain things can end up being difficult to figure out the first time. Examples include:
    • Reaching Giselle, which requires you to talk through a door to get her to open it for you.
    • The pipe stuck in the gears in the Weather Tower.
    • Turning off the lights to attack the guards outside the room in Hibiscus Highrise.
    • The flippy-switch puzzle.
  • Paranoia Fuel: How do you know that everything you know and remember is real?
  • X Meets Y: Blade Runner meets Angel Heart meets a happy ending.
