** Earlier in the game your perspective shifts to Hudson during the mission to capture Clarke. Given that the game has been told exclusively from Mason's perspective up to this point, it's quite jarring.

[[spoiler: It does make sense near the end of the campaign, when you find out that the interrogator ''is'' Hudson.]]

* {{WMG}}: As a game centered around ColdWar, as well as the computer at the main menu room, it is prone to have fan ConspiracyTheories.

* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Dr. Steiner and Dr. Clarke, both know ''exactly'' what Dragovich plans to do with the nerve agent they are creating for him, but neither one cares about the dire global consequences. Steiner's arguably just trying to avoid summary execution for [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness no longer being of value]] to the Nova6 program, and Clarke's dossier specifically describes him as a "malignant narcissist" who defected to the Soviets to get revenge on his western peers who snubbed him for his politics.

** The Soviet Mi-24 Hind helicopter did not have its first flight until September 19, 1969 and did not enter military service until 1972, but that doesn't stop the helicopters from appearing in multiple missions set in 1968. The Mi-8 is a bit better about this, as for the most part the game takes place a year after it entered service, but that still leaves the fact that by '63 there were only three or four prototypes, and you shoot down at least that many production models across the two missions set in that year.
** The computer terminals where in you can play Zork and/or access emails from various individuals appear to be running on a variant of Unix, and yet the operating system itself was released in 1969, a year after the game takes place. Then again, [[MindScrew the terminal also holds emails and other documents dated as far forward as 1978.]]

** The Soviet Mi-24 Hind helicopter did not have its first flight until September 19, 1969 and did not enter military service until 1972, but that doesn't stop the helicopters from appearing in multiple missions set in 1968. Worse, when you take control of it in the singleplayer mission "Payback" or with the multiplayer killstreak, it has a lock-on warning and automated countermeasure system to deal with missiles fired by the enemy team, when the real Hind did not get such systems until they started losing them to American-supplied Stingers in the UsefulNotes/SovietInvasionOfAfghanistan two decades later (albeit this is an AcceptableBreakFromReality, because not knowing when a powerful rocket is locked onto you would be unfair). The Mi-8 is a bit better about this, as for the most part the game takes place a year after it entered service, but that still leaves the fact that by '63 there were only three or four prototypes, and you shoot down at least that many production models across in the two missions set in during that year.
year alone you shoot down ''at least'' that many of them.
