** When Jack finally engages Tseng in ''Retribution'', a cutscene plays where Tseng quickly [[CurbStompBattle curbstomps]] Jack with swift blows while dodging every one of Jack's attacks. Then you're back in control of Jack and the boss battle begins proper where you can actually hurt him.

* DummiedOut: A very strange case indeed. The PS2 version has a heavily truncated version of Chapter 3 (the prison level) compared to the Xbox version. In the Xbox version a prisoner (called Timmy, apparently) asks you to go beat up Mad Dog and offers you a reward. In the PS2 version you instead are just attacked by Mad Dog for basically no reason, and he drops the card you need. Another mini-boss shortly after, Mac, and the related mission to get a photograph back from him are both cut entirely. To keep the number of cigarette packs even a random enemy encounter is added directly after talking to Wire Boy (who asks you to get 25 packs in the first place) and several more drop from common enemies. Perhaps the developers decided the chapter was too long and needed some paring down?

The proper spelling is Hennessey.

He's not actually the third to last boss, Meeshaka and Shadraka come between Pinnacle and Fahook.
* MightyGlacier: The third last boss of the original game has [[spoiler: Mayor Pinnacle]], an absurdly huge man [[BadassInANiceSuit in a nice suit]] with bowling ball-sized fists that can pound you into the dust.

* BloodierAndGorier: ''Retribution'', oh so very much. The original was mostly BloodlessCarnage and Jack's takedowns while still violent are more designed to imitate the graceful gunplay of JohnWoo movies. Retribution's takedowns on the other hand are downright sadistic, from Jack shooting a guy's kneecaps and then executing him after he begs for his life to Shadow mauling an enemy violently and ripping off his scrotum. Blood and gore is anywhere. Case in point: a still of Jack vaporizing a thug's face with a gunshot is the ''[[http://lparchive.org/Dead-to-Rights-Retribution/Images/3-brightness.jpg brightness adjustment screen]]''.
