** North Point is located at east of the island but in real life, it is located at the north east.
** Several landmarks are absent from the game such as Hong Kong Disney Land, Hong Kong International Airport and the MTR subway.

** Unlike the ''GrandTheftAuto'' games, the civilians will not go back to their own car when you hijack-then-exit the vehicle. Yet, they will beat the crap outta you instead of going back to their car, after they pulled you out of their car.

The game had originally begun development as an original game called ''Black Lotus'' but was re-branded as the third game in the ''[[VideoGame/TrueCrimeStreetsOfLA True]]'' ''[[VideoGame/TrueCrimeNewYorkCity Crime]]'' series as ''True Crime: Hong Kong''. Due to the poor reception and performance of the [[TrueCrimeNewYorkCity second game]], however, as well as delays and budget overruns, Creator/{{Activision}}, the game's original publisher, canned it in 2010. Shortly after that, it was picked back up by Square Enix and renamed. It did very well critically when released, with the open world of Hong Kong being praised to high heaven.

** Alternatively you can just get in a car and run over all your opponents. So long as there aren't any cops already present there's no risk of it getting you shot.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The Dim Mak. The final combat move you learn at the end of a long GottaCatchThemAll quest, it's quite handy at dispatching regular mooks (who are easily dispatched by any means). But tough mooks will usually avoid it, while bosses will generally [[HoistByHisOwnPetard use the chance to counter your counter]]. The BoringButPractical regular counter is much less likely to get you killed.

** In the DLC mission ''Death by a Thousand Cuts'' by the Triad Enforcer pack you are given a golden cleaver that will never wear out, gets a fair amount of Triad points with each hit and takes down enemies in just a few hits each. And since you're facing waves of enemies who are carrying poisoned knives and cleavers, it's much more practical to get rid of your cleaver quickly so you can go back to the unarmed Counter, which deals decent damage itself, stops the opponent from doing a follow-up attack and isn't too bad for earning points itself.

* MixedMartialArts: UFC fighter Georges St-Pierre was consulted by the producers to create the game's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yvpPlmmyiY melee combat system]]. The game's Limited Edition grants access to a clothing set which, when worn, allows Wei to perform his signature attack: a flying punch.
