** Several cars (such as the Shubert Beverly, Smith Custom 200 and Smith Thunderbolt) are based on, and have the design aesthetics of, cars from much later in the decade.

And while it's still in use by the fifties, it becomes vanishingly rare before being phased out entirely by the late game. They had the right year for the car, yet for some reason put it in the wrong one.

*** Inverted with one car in the game, the Smith Deluxe Station Wagon. Despite the fact that it is based on a late '30s Ford car (with a continental tire at the back and wooden plating, both of which became popular in the early '40s) that wouldn't be out-of-place in 1945, the car doesn't actually appear until 1951. This mistake appears to be fixed in two of the [=DLC=]s that take place in the '50s, where the car does not appear at all.

* AllAsiansKnowMartialArts: Played with. The prison boxing matches feature one Chinese opponent, and he uses a [[BoringButPractical fairly basic]] fighting style because the Mafia inmates [[RealityIsUnrealistic were afraid that flashy kung-fu moves would give him an unfair advantage]]. In an ambient conversation at the same prison, a black inmate is asking an Asian inmate if he could teach him kung-fu. The Asian inmate agrees, in exchange for the black inmate teaching him how to play basketball.

* ImproperlyPlacedFirearms: The prologue level has Italian troops armed with mostly German weapons like the MP 40 and Kar 98, despite the more appropriate Beretta Model 38 being present.



** The prologue level is set in a Sicilian village during Operation Husky in July 1943, with Vito as a Paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne, complete with Italian Blackshirts [[ImproperlyPlaceFirearms armed with German weapons]] as enemies. Not unlike [[VideoGame/MedalOfHonorAirborne the first level of a certain World War II game.]]
