** Hell, even going from a session of Prototype 2 back to Prototype 1 can mess up players, due to the differences in several mechanics such as stealth consumption and combat. One such example is that the grab button [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin grabs people]] instead of giving several button promps like it did in the sequel. Another change is the combat, as a player will expect to use the multi-weapon system from Prototype 2 but end up using a heavy attack instead.
** Another change between Prototype 1 and 2 is the movement. In Prototype 2, the engine was changed so that Heller would automatically jump when at the critical point of his jump's charge, while Mercer can hold his jumps indefinitely. This also ties directly into the air glide system, as the changes to the controls can be troubling for players trying to leap over a building (or several) [[InASingleBound in a single bound]].

** Alex Mercer's fate is remarkably similar to that that of [[spoiler: William Birkin]] from ResidentEvil2. [[spoiler: Both characters get gunned down, but use viruses to revive themselves into horrible monsters and infect their respective cities.]]

** The big twist, [[spoiler: you're just a sentient thing that believes it's a real person because you infected their body]], is right out of Creator/AlanMoore's run on ''ComicBook/SwampThing''.

** A chemical spray weapon being used to pin down an enemy and remove their cover, that is supposedly harmless to humans but is implied to actually have nasty side effects...are we talking about the bloodtox that Blackwatch deploys or [[UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar Agent Orange]]?

* DegradedBoss: The first time you encounter Hunters, they serve as a somewhat difficult boss in one of the story-related missions. Later on in the game, they more or less serve as EliteMooks and are very easily killed by a sufficiently upgraded Alex.

***This is more easily bearable if you make the Hunters take a dirt nap and using groundspikes on the Leader Hunters, the next thing on the list is to play catch with the Hydras

** In fact, the game actively updates its ads to keep up with the times. When ''{{Inception}}'' was in theaters, you couldn't run two blocks without seeing an ad for it.

* BadassBookworm: Alex Mercer. [[spoiler:He's got a Ph.D, his work was ahead of everyone else's...]] and now he's turned into an unstoppable person of mass destruction. There's also the fact that he's consumed literally ''dozens'' of scientists in multiple fields of study, along with multiple high-ranking military officers and pilots. That adds up to a man who has the collective brains of dozens of scientists and military experts, in the body of a nigh-unstoppable {{badass}}.
