* ScrappyMechanic: Driving in ''Police Quest III''. To accelerate, click in front of the car. To slow down, click at the rear of the car. Each click either increase or decrease speed by 5 mph. Sound easy? At least until you realize you have no idea what's ahead of you. Your car is displayed inside a small square. The rest of the screen is filled with a useless view of you driving, without the windshield. The map only give your overall position and doesn't tell how close or far you are to a turn. Too often, you'll end up [[GameOver driving off road]] or missing your street/parking entrance. In the end it's better to just drive at very low speed. Have fun!

*** Averted in the original though, where you had free, open-world like control over your vehicle.

** So much the game was criticized because players would act the way they saw police officers behave on TV or in movies; when in real life, that gets you and others severely hurt or even killed. There were even people saying why you couldn't just take out your gun and shoot everyone.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The entire terrorist hijacking scene in PQ2 has nothing to do with the main plot. It just serves to make the flight to Steelton a bit more exciting, and afterwards is never referred to again.

* UnfortunateImplications: ''[=PQ4=]'' has some very... questionable portrayals of ethnic groups, especially [[AsianStoreOwner a Korean storeowner]].

* BreatherLevel: After a tough training level in 'SWAT 2'' and several call outs including one based on the North Hollywood shoot out your element is called out to a airport sniper. Hands down the easiest level in the game, the most difficult part is trying to apprehend the woman who is with the sniper, or whether or not to authorize paying a ransom. Arresting the sniper and clearing the level without a shot fired and top marks is EasierThanEasy.
