Black Isle Studios is mentioned but their involvement is not elaborated.
Virgin Interactive Entertainment worked as exclusive distributor in Europe.

voice overs - does not cover the protagonist in dialogs, but he/she still does say short phrases here and there.
dialog-sentences - there's very little choices, though.
suicidebombers - floating single-eyed gasbags
karmic creatures - some zombies release poisonous fume on death.

pop-up mooks - only some

caninoids - gnolls
sasquatch - yeti

--- averted
hazardous powers / safe powers - fireball is harmful to the caster, but meteor swarm and flame "shield" isn't. the others dont't have the capability for harming the caster (based on visual feedback). As such, this is too mixed case to mark as either.
