** Except we're told that it's Runner Vision. We're looking through Faith's eyes, and all she sees are surfaces she can use, which is why the important ones are red. No one painted them red, that's just how we see it. In the official "Still Alive" music video, we see what the city ''actually'' looks like.

** A news report in the last level mentions that Pirandello Kruger has been authorized to draft in more units from the city's populace until Faith and her sister are caught. All of those FacelessMooks you go through? There's a good chance they didn't have a choice.

* Yahtzee wonders why we're supposed to think this is a dystopia. What, are we supposed to be upset that they keep everything so clean? Now, it's been mentioned that the city appears to be empty of everyone but cops, but here's the thing. [[http://www.trevorlittle.com/wordpress/wp-content/photos/DSCF1289.jpg Ever worked outside in a city?]] City's are filthy. If you want to keep a building from looking grungy, you have to wash it; there are people who make their living power-washing parking garages to keep them from getting dirty enough to sprout plants. For the city to be that sparkling white, it must somehow employ a small army of vertical-surface janitors. The city really is all about the gloss, and not about substance.

** Except that's assuming [[spoiler: you ever face CPF in combat, which, in fact, you don't. As mentioned below on this page, every "blue" who is not Kate or Miller belongs to PK, which is why they're so trigger-happy in the first level.]]

** As someone who likes these kinds of stories, i feel the need to say this; wasn't the VillainProtagonist thing kinda [[CaptainObvious obvious]]?

* The PacifistRun makes tremendous sense when you consider [[spoiler: if the Mayor is trying to replace the police with a private military contractor, you'd want to keep as many cops alive as possible.]]

** The Parkour Killer [[spoiler: Celeste]] is wearing a padded prototype Pursuit Cop outfit, though, so it's probably mostly as protective against groin-kicks as the riot cops' armored codpieces are. Remember, Faith isn't kicking with a steel-toed boot, but with a soft tabi.

* Despite the title (and the game's page image on ThisVeryWiki), there are no actual reflective surfaces in the entire game. That's because Faith's movement animations are so [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3VnWYt9flM glaringly crude]] that the devs didn't dare to show them other than [[FirstPersonGhost in first-person]].

** This sounds more like WMG, especially since the ammunition is very lethal only after few rounds, and just as much when used by Faith against the enemies.

Faith's opening lines are (paraphrased) "Once, the City alive and wonderful but not anymore." But whenever she looks over the city (such as the first cutscene after the tutorial and during the ending), "Still Alive" starts to play. Let's not forget the lyrics that speak of the "concrete heart", "no shadows", "red lights", etc.--all attributes of the City. It's as if either the City tries to tell Faith that it is still alive (cf. the interpretation that it's actually PostCyberpunk, although Faith thinks it's straight-up CyberPunk), or Faith misguidedly seeing false qualities in the City.
