* DeliberateValuesDissonance: The characters are about as racist as you can get in a game without causing a controversy. For instance: Vito asks Joe if he drove to the bar (in an African-American community), and Joe replies, "I wouldn't park my car in this neighborhood!"

* MythologyGag: The scene where Vito slowly lifts a few crates and brings them to a pallet, then refuses to do any more, is a bit of SelfDeprecation regarding the agonizingly long segment of one of the first game's penultimate missions when you had to do this in seriousness.

Vito is however wounded in service, and is sent home to Empire Bay for a month - but upon his arrival, he discovers that the things has taken a turn for the worse. His father has died and has left his family with a massive debt of $2000... money which the local loan shark is getting quite anxious to get back.

* NewRomanLegions: In the prologue, you get to fight Italian soldiers (albeit, using German equipment) instead of the typical Germans as with a lot of WorldWarII games.



* UsefulNotes/WorldWarII: One third of the storyline is set against the latter half of the conflict. The United States' participation in the war is in full swing, evident in Empire Bay with World War II-themed music on the radio, and off-duty troops and army trucks. [[spoiler:Vito's fate is also shaped by the war not once but twice; the first is in 1943 when he is arrested for burglary and enlists to fight for the army in Sicily as an alternative to prison; the second has Vito convicted of impeding the war effort in 1945 for stealing gas ration stamps from the Office of Price Administration, landing himself in the slammer for six years.]]
** Hell, even [[spoiler:the first chapter features Vito in battle in urban Sicily against [[NewRomanLegions fascist Italian soldiers]].]]

* SuspectIsHatless: The police dispatch's description of the protagonist is laughably vague; usually something along the lines of "Caucasian male, dark hair, medium build." Although this never seems to prevent policemen from recognizing Vito on sight.
