The Xbox game was not entirely well received, due in part to the number of bugs and difficulty of controls, but the PC version fared better.

* GameMod: [[http://www.miketyndall.com/setz/Advent%20Revising/ Advent Revising]], a fan-patch that, while not fixing any possible problems the PC version has when it comes to gameplay, fixes a buttload of problems it had with cutscenes & cinematics [including adding in cutscenes that were cut from the PC version, along with (arguably) better subtitles, less cutscene stuttering, and lowered music delay]. Essentially, this makes the PC version [[http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/advent_rising (available on GOG for about $6,]] [[http://store.steampowered.com/app/3800/ or Steam for $10)]] basically the best version.

Added DiffLines:

** Note that this is after Gideon has met the Aurelians, so it's either this or Foreshadowing.


** As one of the Aurelians says, "It is not easy being God."

to:

** As one of -->'''Felidic Warrior''': This is the Aurelians says, "It hope of Aurelia, human. All that we see is noble and good and pure. All that we aspire to is held in that symbol. It is held in you. It is a heavy weight you carry, human. Epochs of history, the tides of war, the blood of nations, all this is laid at your feet. It is not easy being God."


* {{Badass}}: Gideon Wyeth, of course.
** His brother Ethan possibly moreso, being able to hold the line at the escape pods while crippled.
