* {{Zeerust}}: Averted? It might be too early to say, but judging by the use of technology throughout the game chances are it'll still look pretty current in a decade or so. Hell, all the talk of the [[TheWarOnTerror Pakistani Ultimatum]], and the [[ChinaTakesOverTheWorld Chinese]] involvement in it make it seem like this could be happening ''today'', even though the game technically takes place in the ([[NextSundayAD not too distant]]) past at this point.

** The episode at the medical hospital is a WholePlotReference to ''TheSilenceOfTheLambs''. The orderly is a clone of Barney and recites some of his originator's dialogue word-for-word. (Of course, then the power goes out and the movie goes OffTheRails.)

Added DiffLines:

* WeAllLiveInAmerica: Carla is occasionally addressed as "Inspector" early on, which, in the NYPD, would put her two grades ''above'' [[DaChief Captain Jones]] in real life. It's far more likely they were referring to the rank in some European countries that's roughly equivalent to Lieutenant in America. Strangely enough, the sign on her and Tyler's office ''does'' list her rank as Lieutenant.

** [[spoiler: The Purple Clan ending, where the various AI machines lord over the earth while what's left of humanity fights back from the shadows, is a pretty clear reference to the Skynet-controlled future seen in ''Film/TheTerminator''. Lucas even ends up playing a role similar to that of John Connor due to his Chroma powers, and there are also some similarities between him and Kyle Reese; his and Carla's child is said to be the one who will finally save humanity.]]

* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: [[spoiler:When Lucas is possessed by the Cyborg, Carla takes control to snap him out of it. The Cyborg foils it by knocking her out of the way. Of course, seeing her hurt gets Lucas to snap out of its control]].

** Should it drop to zero, the character you're playing will snap and...well, kill themselves. However, you usually have some control over the meter, with only two decisions ([[spoiler:Tyler staying in New York, rather than leaving with Samantha, and Lucas choosing to let the boy drown rather than save him in the park]]) causing it to plummet precipitously.

Added DiffLines:

* GuideDangIt: Many players get stumped at the scene where Tyler is questioning Lucas, Lucas starts hallucinating spectral green insects (again) and the game enters an action sequence. The solution is to ''ignore'' the minigame, as successfully playing it will cause Lucas to react to the insects, and Tyler gets more and more suspicious at Lucas freaking out and eventually arrests him.

* UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity: The "capital of the universe", as Lucas himself puts it in the opening narration.
* NewYorkCityCops: Lots of them.
