- Anvilicious: Regardless of one's political or social beliefs, the game has been criticized for its at times preachy and heavy-handed overtones which would make Captain Planet and the Planeteers look subtle. Some eco-friendly technologies, for example, would have their abilities exaggerated to encourage people to invest in them in Real Life (for example, biofuel - it requires massive amounts of land to produce crops to turn into fuel, and thus inefficient to use on any large scale). Although at least in some regards, Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped.
- Tear Jerker / Nightmare Fuel: "Blighted by extreme famine, people in North America are making such harsh discoveries. The weather that killed crops is leaving the ground too hard for decent burials. In a developed region like this, people are used to good food and good graves. Now they have neither.", and other texts in that theme.
YMMV / Fate of the World
