* CoolCar: Now all real cars (Except ASYM Desanne, see WritingAroundTrademarks below), in change from the previous games which use [[Expy Expies]] or unbranded cars. Out of the 140 vehicles to choose from, a lot of them are darn cool ranging from muscle cars to supercars, luxury cars and off-road cars and a ''lot'' of them are a reference to one movie or another.

* UniversalDriversLicense: Tanner has no problem going from his [[DrivingStick manual]] Dodge Challenger R/T to an automatic car whose stick may be on the wheel itself, to an F1-style paddle-shifter up to a school bus, armored van or the eighteen wheel semi-truck. The game even properly animates these situations in first person, complete with Tanner putting his hand on the wheel stick when reversing an automatic or having a separate, slanted-wheel animation for larger vehicles. Being AllJustADream, it makes sense Tanner wouldn't have a problem.

* WritingAroundTrademarks: There is this one and only fictional car that cannot be driven, the [=ASYM=] Desanne which appears as certain police cars in cutscenes or the normal version for a character, later blasted by an RPG-7 or planted with a car bomb. This is probably to avoid licensing issues because it's doubtful Ford, Dodge, or any other car manufacturer would approve of the depiction of their police cruisers (or other cars, in the matter) being blasted by an RPG or shown deliberately bombed.

*** And then there's the Dodge Challenger from ''VanishingPoint'', [[TheDukesOfHazzard a '69 Dodge Charger]], and [[Film/JamesBond 007's Aston Martin DB5]].

Added DiffLines:

* EndlessDaytime: The entire game, even in short segments in the begining, [[spoiler: the end, and the end credits]] taking place in the real world.

** Justified as the game is in Tanner's coma dream and Tanner's interest with cool cars subconsciously affecting the world.

* EveryCarIsAPinto: Surprisingly averted for a game themed off of movie car chases. The only time a vehicle explodes is if it's a tanker filled with something volatile or if the car (usually [[WritingAroundTrademarks ASYM Desanne) was rigged with a bomb. Tanner jokingly alludes to this when teaching "driving lessons" to an unfortunate passenger.

* CowboyCop: Tanner, to the hilt. He's however changed from his no-nonsense, brash but serious personality into a wise-cracking one.



* EnemyWithin: There are two Jerichos. The genuine one is loose in the real world, plotting a false flag attack on downtown as a distraction for his jailbreak. The Jericho in Tanner's head is an embodiment of his fear of death. (Hence the theme song, "Race With Death".)

* LighterAndSofter: Compared to the previous game, the game has little to no shootings, far less gritty setting with little to no gangland ghetto, far more focus on driving and cars, a more wise-cracking, talkative protagonist, and generally more wacky, fantastic plot and characters, although justified.



* SecretAIMoves: There is this one car that cannot be driven, the [=ASYM=] Desanne which appears as certain police cars in cutscenes or the normal version for many of the cars that are completely trashed, be it blasted by an RPG-7 or planted with a car bomb. This is probably to avoid licensing issues because it's doubtful Ford or Dodge would approve of the depiction of their police cruisers being blasted by an RPG.
