* EsotericHappyEnding: [[spoiler: Yay, Faith rescued her sister! Nevermind that Callaghan still has an iron grip on the city, her only major political opponent is still dead, PK has effectively taken over the police force, and while you ''did'' wreck a server room that apparently has something to do with mass surveillance in the city, there's no real expounding on how lasting of an impact you actually made. Oh, and those anti-Runner PKs are still out there to make your life hell later. In fact, how exactly are Faith and Kate going to escape from the Shard, since Kate is handcuffed and assumedly doesn't have Faith's LeParkour skills, and there's no indication that security has stopped combing the building looking for them? Who cares, time for hugs and credits!]]

* PortingDisaster: The PC port suffers from some severe performance issues whenever broken glass is involved. Go to the shootout at the server room and watch the framerate drop to one frame every 2 seconds even on modern rigs unless you crank the graphics down to the lowest possible settings.

** The lyrics to "Still Alive" about a city that's artificially clean and pretty:
-->But inside my head so loud and clear\\
You're screaming, you're screaming\\
Covered up with a smile I've learned to fear

* UncannyValley: Faith's animations look fine from a first-person perspective. But if you install a mod to play it in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3VnWYt9flM third-person]]...[[SarcasmMode It's almost as if the game wasn't supposed to be seen outside of first person. Strange how that works...]]

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36YhOECHpSM This is the sound]] that plays when Faith is falling to her death. If you think it isn't horrifying enough, look through the comments and read the reports of people who heard this while having sleep paralysis, but ''louder''.

* HellIsThatNoise: The weird, distorted wind followed by hideous bone-crunching sounds whenever Faith falls off a skyscraper, as well as the sound of any oncoming train right before it hits her.

* GoodBadBugs: If you kick a mook off a ledge, they die. Regardless of how high up the ledge is. This is particularly helpful in the last fight, when you can take out one of your ambushers incredibly quickly by running up the stairs, kicking him off the landing, and watching him fall three feet to his death.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The Runners. Are they freedom fighters, as they believe, or small-scale terrorists? The story would be the same either way, [[spoiler: and would even have a happier ending if the latter were true. Not for Faith, but for the city.]]
