YMMV / The Visitor

  • Crowning Moment of Funny: In the first game, you assimilate a cat. When the Visitor bursts out of it, the thing meows.
  • Fridge Logic: In Returns. Considering that you got all of the game's animal abilities when you kill the man, why doesn't the Visitor just get inside the resulting Slashed Throat, absorb the man's genes and mutate into a humanoid form there and then instead of having to kill the woman to obtain them? Possibly because the man had been drinking copious amounts of alcohol which could have potentially weakened or killed the Visitor, or taking a large humanoid form would have made it a big target for the woman to shoot. Or maybe it just wanted to be a pretty lady. Or maybe to get female organs for it to reproduce.
  • Narm: the monster at the end of the original Visitor is pretty cheesy.
  • Sophomore Slump: The panned maze game Massacre at Camp Happy, combined with Middle Child Syndrome between the original game and Returns.
  • Squick: There's copious amounts of blood and gore in the games. And in the first game, there's one where you kill a cat... by entering from its anus.
  • Word of God: The official name for the parasite is "Alien Death Slug".
