* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: All the games, save ''2'' and ''2012'' (which oozes with place references) try to make the places the missions are set in ambiguous, everyday German cities near lakes in the lower-ish country. It does not always work, such as in the ''3'' mission, in which a fire breaks out in a very Bavarian horse stable that's called... ''Bavaria Hof''. Another problem are the police uniforms. By the time ''4'' rolled around, most German states had adapted uniforms similar to the blue ones in the game, but ''not'' states such as Bavaria, Saarland (green) or Hamburg (black).
