** Doesn't help that[[spoiler: the post-credits scene reveals he knew about the Morphine bust the whole time, and could've easily stopped the WHOLE GAME'S PLOT if he had told someone about Sheldon's plan to rob the freighter.]]

*** The reason for the big incongruity with the item labeled "doubt" making Phelps just ''lose it'' is that in development it was supposed to be something like "force", hence the intense acting for those choices and a few lines of dialogue early on implying he is authorized to browbeat suspects. Had the choice retained its original label, people might not be so surprised about the sudden escalation....



*** A trick that always worked well for me was to shoot the gunman in the leg to stumble him, then just finish him with a head or chest shot before he recovers.
*** With auto-aim turned on, on the other hand, the reticule will be locked on the hostage-taker's head, meaning all you have to do is strike the first time he's exposed, rendering these tough segments a negligible-difficulty button press.



*** Makes sense from a policing perspective though. Why sprint yourself tired when you can keep after them at a jog and let them wear themselves out?

** Why is there an E on the end of the word "Noire" in the title? Because "Noir" is a French word meaning "black", and French has both a masculine and feminine case. "Le noir" is the male version of saying "the black" (i.e. the black table), but if it's feminine, one says "la noire". The title is just being grammatically correct.

* {{Hypocrite}}: Los Angeles, a city known for its vices, drags Cole Phelps, [[spoiler: a mere adulterer]], through the mud and dismantles all of his accomplishments in the police force because of this simple transgression. It gets annoying when his superiors chastise him for it even though most of them [[spoiler: deal in murder, drugs, and much shadier affairs.]] Even his own comrades in the war have the balls to call him out for his [[spoiler: mistake with the cave hospital]] despite going on to [[spoiler: cause much of the conspiracies]] that Cole has to solve later in the game.
** It gets especially egregious when you look at the [[BlatantLies charming]] Roy Earle, who, despite being a philanderer, drug abuser, racist, misoginist, and just a [[IncrediblyLamePun royal]] prick, still gets to be the star detective of the vice squad. Granted, [[spoiler: he is a part of the conspiracy]], but it's still very jarring.

** Due to how the facial motion-capture technology works, with enough playtime, you might notice how the models work, especially the teeth. It looks like the teeth are just modelled onto their faces, rather than being inside their mouths.

* BaseBreaker: Kelso. [[spoiler: Everyone falls into one of two camps: either he's a total badass who was a better protagonist and more fun to play than Cole, or he's TheScrappy who derailed the last few cases of the game due to being a MartyStu action hero in a Noir setting.]] There are no exceptions.

* FridgeBrilliance: Cole was a sub-par lieutenant throughout all his time in the Marines, but it doesn't take long for him to prove himself as the best case man in the LAPD. Makes sense for a couple of reasons. Firstly, his poor leadership skills don't matter as much when he's only working with one other person. Second, Cole's problem in the Marines was that he was a stickler for rules and regulation, and always doing this a certain way, which became a problem whenever his plans went awry and he still demanded that they be adhered to. His more analytical and slow-and-steady approach to matters would be much more fitting for police work than on a battlefield.
