* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Eve's stage theme has a hint of "Oye Como Va" by Santana.

Added DiffLines:

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: The game takes full-on advantage of the [=N64=] controller, so this means the shoulder buttons are there for sidesteps, while the B button is there for throws and the A button will be rendered useless (unless you perform a joystick motion along with that button to make something happen). Other than that, all four C-buttons are respectively set for two weapon attacks, kicking, and blocking.

It was originally conceived as ''Criticom II'', and is the second of three fighting games developed by Kronos Digital, falling between ''Criticom'' and ''Cardinal Syn''. These three games have been referred to as the "Trilogy of Terror", due to their rather uniform low-standing with critics.

According to legend, when the universe was created, a Master Key was forged to lock away all ancient secrets and the infinite power of cosmos. The key was divided and cast into different circles of reality. When the Hyperions accidentally acquired a piece of the Master Key, then called Core Prime Element, they abuse its power and proclaimed themselves the Chosen Ones. After many years of tyrannical rule, their society became morally destitute and internally corrupted. In the midst of political and social chaos,Sonork Nezom arose as the Chosen Ones´s demented Emperor. With the help of his sordid followers, Sonork enslaved the mass populace, murdered any possible oppositor, and claimed the Core Prime Element as his own. For many years, only one entity sought the prize with vigilant fervor, Demitron, The Lord Demon of the Dark Dimension. When Nezom came into the power, Demitron knew his chance had come. To retrieve the Core Prime Element and murder Sonork, Demitron sent his most hideous servant, Demonica Gkroux. When the arch demon Demonica failed, she exchanged secret information for her life. She told Sonork that, aside from his Core Prime Element, there were at least two more pieces of the Master Key. Demonica also revealed that while the Light Prime Element´s location had never been discovered, the Dark Prime Element was imbedded in her lord master´s head. Then Sonork convoked a tournament to force the Light Prime Element´s owner to show himself. With the Core and Light Prime Elements, Sonork has no problem to challenge the dangerous Demitron, cut off his head to obtain the Dark Prime Element and proclaim himself the Emperor of the Universe....
