* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: You can shoot and kill the slaves and prisoners you're supposed to be saving. They'll drop any gear they would have given you, so you can't make the game {{Unwinnable}} this way. This was removed in the SNES version.

* SleevesAreForWimps: Blackthorne.Blackthorne, check out those bulging biceps!
* TakeCover: A big element of the game is that Blackthorne and most of the humans/humanoids can take cover in the shadows to avoid getting shot. Blackthorne's not a fast guy, so this is usually the only way to dodge a bullet.


* ChangelingFantasy

* ChangelingFantasyChangelingFantasy: Blackthorne was an orphan who grew up to be a soldier with the U.N. and then a mercenary, turns out he's actually an alien prince.


Added DiffLines:

* ScienceFantasy: There's magic, a real witch and ghostly king on a planet that has technology well beyond what Earth has.


Added DiffLines:

* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: Zigzagged. Your shotgun was from the crashed helicopter that was part of your background story. It's garbage that can only shoot twice before taking a long reload. But as you get newer alien shotguns from the natives, you'll eventually get a fully-automatic shotgun with explosive shells, which is much better than the pistols that some of the rebels use.

A CinematicPlatformGame from 1994, developed by Creator/BlizzardEntertainment and published by Creator/InterplayEntertainment, for the {{SNES}} and [[UsefulNotes/IBMPersonalComputer PC]] (later ported to the [[UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis 32X]], {{Macintosh}}, and UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance). The gameplay is very similar to ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersia''; the main differences are that combat is done with guns and bombs instead of swords, and there is an item inventory system (some levels require the use of these items to make progress).

* RatedMForManly: Kyle Blackthorne, most certainly. Tattered jeans, combat boots, tank top, sunglasses, battle mullet, shotgun, and the aforementioned backwards shotgun blast has him oozing macho.
