While the game is a [[FirstPersonShooter first person shooter]], guns are completely optional[[note]]There's even an achievement for not using one in the entire game[[/note]]. Instead, Faith uses [[LeParkour parkour]] to traverse rooftops and evade enemies. The rooftops turned into large puzzle pieces as players found their way to point B. The game also had an interesting art direction: the city was almost entirely sterile white save some sparse colors here and there. Items and places would turn red to point players in the right direction.

* BrickJoke: A rather sad one. An office worker from PK decides that their project to eliminate runners, the horrible working conditions, among other controversial things [[spoiler:such as "interrogating co-workers"]], isn't worth it and sends a mail that he's quitting. This is detailed in his personal diary and rant can be read on his computer. [[OhCrap The file containing said rant is found open on his computer when you get to the PK facility]]. [[spoiler:When you go through the depths of the facility, you find a corridor filled with windows leading to interrogation rooms. An office worker is in one of them. Beaten and bloody.]]

* AbortedArc: The [[spoiler:"runner assassins"]] are supposed to be a huge deal. However after appearing in one mission they are never seen or mentioned again. WordOfGod states time constraints during development was the cause.

* SamusIsAGirl: [[spoiler: The boss of Chapter 7 is Celeste, whose alter ego was presumed male. Hilariously, your first clue is when [[spoiler:she doesn't really react to your [[GroinAttack crotch-kicks]]]]. Another giveaway - [[spoiler: when you hit her she grunts girlishly, and how many girls have you [[ChekhovsGunman met so far]] in the game? Faith, Celeste, and Kate.]] Two of those are fairly unlikely. A third giveaway -- and a pretty clever one at that -- [[spoiler: when you're escaping the mall and the Parkour Killer waits for Faith to catch up, she does Celeste's idle animation: that restless hop you first see in the tutorial.]]

* DamselInDistress: Kate Connors is wrongfully imprisoned and Faith spends the rest of the game trying to save her.


Added DiffLines:

* FauxActionGirl: Kate Connors is supposed to be a trained policewoman but she's a DamselInDistress for most of the game. On top of that, the one opponent she ever faces knocks her out.
