* HarsherInHindsight: This game deals with the the Black Death, and one of the early levels have the protagonists in a village where everyone is either quarantined, or been forcibly evicted, on the cover of limiting the spread of the plague. This gets a lot harder to look at now that the coronavirus pandemic has broken out.

** The sequence where Amicia and Hugo have to escape from their home while seeing enemy soldiers killing and brutalising their friends is meant to be harrowing, but the effect is somewhat spoiled by [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy the oddly obliging way]] that enemies keep turning their backs to the only path through the house and then just standing there, apparently so fascinated by the decor that they don't notice a pair of kids walking past two steps away from them. It's partly justified in how the sequence amounts to a stealth tutorial, but could have been pulled off less obviously.

** One has to admit that [[spoiler: lighting himself on fire in order to fight Hugo's rats]] is quite impressive, if completely deranged.

Added DiffLines:

** Amicia being a OneHitPointWonder is logical 99% of the time, considering her enemies are men with swords, shields and sometimes full plate armor. Not so logical when she goes down in one tap to the gaunt Inquisitions alchemists, who look about 90 pounds soaking wet.

Added DiffLines:

** In the back half of the game, the rats learn a new trick - they "regroup" as the game calls it and turn into churning rat tornadoes that slowly drift towards you that you must disperse with Ignifier. It's extremely silly in a game that is otherwise as serious as it can be.


** [[BigBad Vitalis Benevent]] is the [[SinisterMinister Grand Inquisitor]] with the intent of [[DrunkWithPower acquiring the Machula to conquer the world]]. Believing himself as almighty, Vitalis had his forces hunt Hugo de Rune to acquire his blood and perfect it, to acquire the power of the plague and to prolong his own life. To that end, he had many people killed and tortured, including Rodric's father after they became of no more use to him, with Beatrice de Rune kept and tortured to gain her knowledge of the Machula. Once he managed to get the Machula after [[WeHaveReserves sacrificing legions of his own men]], Vitalis tried to tie up all loose ends by corrupting Hugo to become his follower and get him to kill Amicia. When Amicia and Hugo confront Vitalis into the headquarters of the Inquisition to stop him, Vitalis revealed that he managed to breed numerous rats under his own control and intend to use it take over all of Europe, believing [[AGodAmI he himself is humanity's savior]], sacrificing an entire congregation to his powers. Power-hungry and ruthless, Vitalis plunged the world to a dark era of the plague to reach absolute power.
