YMMV: The Dark Meadow
  • Complacent Gaming Syndrome: The enemies do grow stronger, but you could keep on using your favorite weapon if you boost your stats as you level up.
  • Complete Monster: The Trickster, who clearly doesn't care about mankind and just sees selling souls as a profitable business. He even said that the best show on earth was seeing an erupting volcano destroy a civilization!
  • Moral Event Horizon: Ben Jacobi seems to have crossed this when he sold his daughter's soul to The Trickster in exchange for 17 more years in his life. The player can cross the line too if you choose to corrupt your daughter's soul in the end.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • The whole premise of being by yourself in a decrepit, crumbling hospital as hordes of monsters led by a ghost try to kill you. The fact that the hospital is actually the portal between the real world and Hell doesn't help either.
    • The Trickster's second and third forms.
    • The bad ending. It serves you right for corrupting your daughter's soul in exchange for 17 more years though.
  • So Cool It's Awesome: While people are mixed about the Infinity Blade-esque gameplay, almost everyone raved about the voice acting in this game. For some, the old man's rants are the only reason to keep on playing.
  • So Okay, It's Average: The combat system is seen as this. While it definitely streamlines the fighting from Infinity Blade, there are only a few monster types to keep players on their toes. It also, like Infinity Blade, forces you to start from square one if you die, making it particularly frustrating for some gamers especially if they reached the final boss.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: With graphics this good, this game looks like something you normally see on your Xbox 360.
