* Updated Re-release: A Director's Cut of the game was released some time after the original. It didn't add much additional content though, which is quite surprising, considering the fact that the original game has like dozens of characters and locations you can talk to and visit that have no bearing on your ability to beat the game whatsoever. What you get instead is, well, a medieval castle hidden beneath a ruined house in the middle of an American city. Oh, and when you leave said castle, you'll end up in a bar full of 1970s TV sets. Don't ask.

* CoversAlwaysLie: Elizabeth looks way younger and prettier on the box than she does in the actual game.



* InformedAttractiveness: Kind of, though related to fame rather than looks. The opening cutscene goes out of its way to show how much o celebrity Jack Orlando used to be back in the day, making front pages, being the mayor's favorite etc. However, at the time when the actual game takes place, hardly anyone, including his very ''neighbors'', recognizes Jack Orlando as an erstwhile hero of the city; in fact, other than Inspector Tom Rogers, the only people who seem to have any idea about Orlando's past are the thugs he had once encountered.

* BrokenAesop: At least one character claims that Biff, Orlando's [[ScaryBlackMan big black neighbor]] is a guy who prefers to solve all of his problems with brute force and thus should be taught a lesson. While Biff certainly isn't the nicest character we encounter in the game, it is Orlando who first tries to steal the crank from his car, subsequently knocking Biff out in an unfair fight. (And don't forget: Biff ''will'' leave Orlando be if he feels like Orlando won't attempt anything like it again.) Is it really so surprising that, at their next meeting, Biff is more than anxious to knock the living shit out of Orlando?



* DaChief: Inspector Tom Rogers, an old friend of Orlando who uses his position to let Orlando investigate the murder he's accused of. (Except that Rogers [[DetectivePatsy doesn't actually want it solved]], because [[DirtyCop he's taking the conspirators' money]].)

* DetectiveMole: [spoiler:Inspector Tom Rogers.]
* DetectivePatsy: It looks like the Inspector is doing Orlando a favour in letting him try to prove his innocence, but since the Inspector is actually in on the crime, he isn't intending Orlando to get anywhere. Part way through the game, Orlando gets in trouble again and is told to wait for the Inspector - if he does, the Inspector decides that he's making too much progress and locks him up, resulting in a NonstandardGameOver.
* DirtyCop: [spoiler:Inspector Tom Rogers] turns out to be one of these, taking bribes from the villains to protect them.

We can actually find that out sooner if we happen to lose the game at a particular point; when [spoiler:Belinger is shot dead on the street,] if Orlando doesn't leave the scene before [Tom] arrives, he will be arrested. Cut to Orlando bashing his fist against the bars of a cell door and throwing curses at [spoiler: Tom] who is smirking at him from the other side, claiming that [[EvilIsHammy "justice triumphs only in fairy tales."]]

* HollywoodLaw: Inspector Rogers provides Orlando with forty-eight hours to [[ClearMyName clear his name]] (see above) despite the fact that the crime scene gives absolutely no indication that he is the actual culprit; the only defense Orlando can produce against such absurd accusations is something along the lines of "I know it looks bad but I ain't done it" and he doesn't even bother to quesion why the hell would he be lying all night long next to the body of the guy he supposedly killed, and if he had, what happened to the gun?
