- High Octane Nightmare Fuel: The aptly named planet Hell.
- Player Punch: The deaths of Aida, Ne'Ban and Isaak.
- Porting Disaster: The Xbox version had Loads and Loads of Loading, poor framerate and awful graphics.

- There's also the moment when Dalton plays back the second half of the burst transmission in the ending cutscene.
- The Woobie: Aida and Isaak.
