* FlamethrowerBackfire: The first game had the boss battle against Girdeux. The man was wearing body armor that made him ImmuneToBullets and Gabe can't use his explosive weapons without triggering the nearby bomb. However, Girdeux was also using a flamethrower and had a huge tank of fuel strapped to his back. Multiple well-aimed shots to his fuel tank later, and Girdeux was toast.

* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Logan's Shadow'', which is the darkest game in the series. In it, the ICPA is shut down by {{corrupt corporate executive}} Robert Cordell, the {{big bad}} of the game, Ghassan Al Bitar, [[TheWarOnTerror is a Middle Eastern terrorist formally affiliated with al-Qaeda]], Gabe is sent on a botched mission by Cordell, Lian is accused of treason by Cordell, and [[spoiler: Gabe's and Teresa's possible death at the end.]] Ironically, this game has a Teen rating as opposed to 2 and 3 which got a Mature rating.
