** The ''Smoking Mirror'' has a lot of crates in Condor Transglobal warehouse (George even pushed a couple of these). Cue ''The Sleeping Dragon'', George [[BlockPuzzle encounters more crates in the whole game]].

* AuthorsSavingThrow: Many fans complained that the Episode 1 of ''The Serpent's Curse'' have easy puzzles, some wooden animations and slow pacing of the plot. Episode 2 corrects this.

Added DiffLines:

* SequelDifficultyDrop: ''The Smoking Mirror'' is significantly easier than ''The Shadows of the Templars'', mostly thanks to limiting the number of location screens the characters are allowed to visit to three or four as well as significantly downplaying the risk of death factor; while you can still die every once in a while, it's always obvious that you're in danger and you're given so much time to react accordingly than an overwhelming majority of gamers have never even realized it is possible to die in the very first scene of the second game if you wait long enough. The third game played this trope again, this time in relation to the second, flirting with ItsEasySoItSucks in the process (at least as far as puzzles go because the action and stealth sequences can be challenging at times), and while ''Angel of Death'' upped the difficulty again, ''The Serpent's Curse'' was casualized all over again (though it is still significantly harder than ''The Sleeping Dragon'').

** The ''Angel of Death'' has the talking metal box in Black Cat Massage Parlor. Nobody knows how it ended there and George doesn't mention about it to anyone after he escaped.

** The way André walks in ''The Sleeping Dragon'' is so weird, it's pretty funny.

** ''The Angel of Death'' is regarded by many as the weakest game in the series due to have awkward controls, [[ItsHardSoItSucks many illogical puzzles]], less interesting plot, some continuity errors and the worst ending. Despite the hate, there are some fans who think that the controls, graphics and puzzles are better than the third game.
** While many fans agreed that ''The Serpent's Curse'' made a lot of improvement over ''The Sleeping Dragon'' and ''The Angel of Death'', there are some fans who were disappointed to it due to the pacing of the plot, [[ItsEasySoItSucks easy puzzles]] and reliance in fanservice. Others think it's good but not up to standards of the first two games. Most fans agree that it's not a good idea to split the game into two episodes.
