YMMV / Silent Bomber

  • Complete Monster: Benoit Manderubrot leaks information to the crew of the Dante space cruiser, allowing the crew to shoot down the team's ship. In the ensuing chaos, Benoit manages to sneak aboard the Dante and slaughter the entire crew. Afterward, Benoit plans to use the Dante's lasers to destroy planet Hornet, before using the Dante to travel the universe and spread chaos everywhere, all for no discernible reason. After his defeat, Benoit reveals to Jutah Fate that he was Jutah's old war commander, and was the one who ordered him to burn down an entire village of innocent civilians.
  • Fridge Logic: Plenty.
    • If Benoit was the voice that guided Jutah at Tarakhan, why did he sound completely different in the prologue?.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: SB is quite possibly the first ever 3D "Spectacle-Action" game and it preceded Devil May Cry by two years. The main thrust of the plot has the protagonist attempting to destroy "Dante". How prophetic.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Benoit Manderubrot.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Jutah crosses it during the prologue, and is permanently emotionally dead as a result. Complete with the screams of small children cut off by his explosions. Damn.
  • Narm Charm: The entire game. The fact that it takes itself so seriously yet is so hilariously overacted is a big part of it's appeal.
  • So Bad, It's Good: The plot and voice acting are at times incredibly hammy, but this just makes the experience as a whole even more like a fun late-eighties anime pastiche. Arguably it wouldn't be as fun without these elements.
  • That One Boss: The Blue Mist commander is quite tricky, but the battle with Benoit is merciless.
