* {{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.

* DesignatedVillain: While many shootouts occur with thugs and common criminals, one case would have you mow through security guards who are just doing their jobs and possibly defending their boss from what they perceived to be pursuers with harmful intent.

* EnjoyTheStorySkipTheGame: Perhaps unsurprisingly, considering the game's story, setting and character focus.
