* TheAllSeeingAI: Like ''Far Cry'', stealth is rendered difficult by the AI being unable to see the same things as the player: while the guards are no longer able to look straight through tents, they still can't see any 2D scenery, which includes ''most of the foliage in the game''.

* FromCamouflageToCriminal: Most of the available player characters have some kind of military background and given the types of things they do during the game, qualify as criminals. The Jackal also most definitely fits the bill as he is a former U.S. Navy SEAL.

Several of the player characters have military service listed early in their dossier, followed by criminal activity later in their careers. The Jackal also most definitely fits the bill as he is a former U.S. Navy SEAL.

After publisher Ubisoft and developer Crytek parted ways, Crytek kept their engine and went on to create ''VideoGame/{{Crysis}}'', while Ubisoft retained the name rights and went on to develop ''Far Cry 2'', a sequel in terms of a ThematicSeries that has the player take the role of one of a dozen mercenaries working in a war-torn African nation, playing both sides while hunting a notorious arms dealer known as the Jackal.

* BecomingTheMask: The quote above is from the "Infamy" tape, where the Jackal talks about how to break a man's will and spirit. He warns if you lose yourself in the carnage you become sloppy and make unnecessary risks and could die from them.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The [[GoldColoredSuperiority Gold]] AK-47s are a downplayed example. While the AK-47 is one of the best guns (decent accuracy and power with high durability) the Gold versions do the same exact thing but degrade slower at the cost of limited number (''8'' hidden across both maps, 4 on each). There's no reason to get them other than for [[BraggingRightsReward bragging rights]]

**The PC version also has the "Boots" glitch, where every Jackal tape found after the tape about the Jackal seeing a child soldier taking a dead soldier's boots will just play that one again and not count the player as finding a new tape. This might not be as bad as the progression-halting bugs, but it does prevent the player getting the achievement / trophy for finding all the Jackal tapes.
