* DoubleStandard: One of the women you can 'rescue" from a bunch of thugs rejects their advances by saying that she saves herself for her man. Once Jake beats up the thugs she suddenly decides that ''it's okay to have sex with him.'' Note that Jake asked for a '''beer''' as a reward.

Granted, post-coitus she mentions her "boyfriend" is an asshole, and she only mentioned him to use him as a beard.

** Ironically, this is actually one of the (relatively) less absurd sex scenes, as she and Jake actually do have a fairly extensive post-coitus conversation in which the two of them bond over the war in Vietnam. She also mentions that Colt's just a sex partner and not a real boyfriend (as he has exactly zero emotional affection for her), and she only claims he's her boyfriend as a shield against grabby assholes.

** In one scene near the end of the game, Jake goes after Pretty Boy, TheDragon of the Devil's Hand, and knows where he stays. But rather than just go after him, he instead wins a couple of races for Brandy, goes to a mine and kills all of the workers there (to be fair, they shot at him first, but he is a biker, after all), goes to a miner's house to steal his bike, evades the police (killing many more of them), gets the bike fitted with C4, and gives it back to Brandy, who takes it to Pretty Boy's loft. And what happens next? Jake shoots the bike to blow it up (not detonating the explosives or anything, and no, the explosion is no different than the millions of explosions that came before it) in order to get Pretty Boy's attention. This leads to another fight with the Devil's Hand and yet another bike chase. Jake might as well have just shot an ordinary bike or car, since it seemed to serve the same purpose. At the very least, the electric fence part had a purpose, even if Jake mishandled it.

** Jake, depite having some [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero offensive moments]], actually shows genuine concern for women [[EveryoneHasStandards and is disgusted by people who attack prostitutes]]. Despite the (justifiable) infamy of the sex scenes taking place after sexual assualts he doesn't actually seem to expect to sleep with them after rescuing them, [[AllWomenAreLustful that's more the fault of the writers]].

** RadioVoice: The game's audio sometimes loads very slowly or improperly, making dialogue that would normally be legible suddenly garbled and lossy, or vice versa.

* ShroudedInMyth: The mysterious leader of the Devil's Hand, Caesar, is this to the rest of the gang. Pretty Boy talks him up like he's a combination of [[SherlockHolmes Professor Moriarty]] and TheTerminator. When you finally face him face-to-face, he's just another hysterical crazy-villainous biker dude. He doesn't even put up as much of a fight as some of the gang bosses you've already killed. Potentially FridgeBrilliance; Caesar is a pretty big guy and articulate enough that he might be impressive to someone who's never finished high school, which is likely to describe a large portion of his Devil's Hand army.

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Inverted; Tyrell Jones is pretty much the only named male character left alive at the end other than Jake.


Added DiffLines:

* TokenMinority: The only non-white characters in the game are Colt's girlfriend and Tyrell. Possibly [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], seeing as it takes place in 1965 and the Devil's Hand don't exactly have a good track record in compassion.

* NoOntologicalInertia: Dynamite thrown by enemies will disappear if you kill them before it goes off. [[https://youtu.be/M6E6hUYfVvs?t=1547 See for yourself.]]



* OnlySixFaces: The game re-uses character models a lot. This is particularly noticeable as it's even done for supporting roles with a decent amount of screen time.

The women (with the exception of Brandy, Ellie, and the strippers) are particularly hilarious -- even though they have a variety of different hairstyles and possibly faces, and one of them even has an ascot that none of the others have, from the neck down their bodies and clothes are all perfect {{Palette Swap}}s of each other right down to having the exact same black studded wristband.



** After defeating a bunch of miners who confused him for a member of the Devil's Hand and attacked him, Jake returns to the first miner he met and spares his life after interrogating him for the location of the next boss, expressing his understanding for their mistrust of bikers. Whether this works or not depends on whether the player beat the miners with melee in an ambiguously non-fatal way like the game intended, or if the player gunned them all down to avoid the strife of the former option. Jake also spares another interrogation victim; a Devil's Hand member described as 'Young' by the dialog subtitles, though Jake had been shooting and exploding that same character model throughout the game.
