** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Enemies who are standing behind cover will know the exact nanosecond your crosshair goes over them and will instantly duck. They'll pop back up soon enough, but you have to keep your gun trained on the spot where they will be (while their buddies pop up to take potshots at you) or they'll duck again.

Added DiffLines:

* FailedASpotCheck: Brandy completely fails to notice Jake is wearing the biker jacket of someone the entire Devil's Hand has been instructed to kill on sight when he approaches her to infiltrate the gang. This being the same jacket that got Mikey recognized and killed on sight by members of FAR lower rank at the start of the game.

* LostInMediasRes: The game starts with Jake driving his bike, interspersed with scenes of him engaging in a turret sequence in the woods, having a fistfight in front of a waterfall, and jumping over a helicopter on said bike. The first two scenes are never explained or reappear again, and the third has little relevance in the storyline.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory:

** Marijuana is consistently referred to as "weed", just as it commonly was when the game was made and released. In the time the game is set, the slang term would have more likely been "pot".
