* SpecialEffectFailure: [[UpToEleven SO DAMN MANY!!!]] Even worse considering how the game was in DevelopmentHell for 5 years, and that even ''sound effects'' are messed up: there's only one kind of explosion noise, the bike engine is an annoying drone after you get it past 40 miles an hour, and the voice acting is just DullSurprise over and over. AngryJoe claimed that ''[[InsultToRocks sound files available for free on the Internet had better quality than the sound effects in the game]]''!

Added DiffLines:

* InferredHolocaust: Destroying a power plant dam could do even more damage that just shutting down an [[ComplexityAddiction electric fence]]. For example, he could have caused a massive power outage of at least 4 different states including his own which means that there would be many people out there that could potentially revolt against he government due to a massive blackout. Even worse, if the explosion somehow broke through the wall of a dam, there could have been a massive flash flood that could cause the deaths of millions including Jake himself. Jake is very lucky that none of these are discussed otherwise, he would have been targeted as an international terrorist for the perceived sabotage of a dam all for the revenge of his brother.

* UnfortunateImplications: As pointed out by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKucJJeZMwc practically]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1HTKWX15oo everyone]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWxEwdGpIPQ who]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGonA7VmW3U has]] reviewed the game, women are literal trophies that you get to have sex with as a reward for beating up their attackers.

* UnfortunateImplications: You could count the number of female characters not used solely for sex on one hand. Make that of what you will.

* TheyJustDidntCare:
** At one point, Jake insults a guy and his ponytail... even though he does not have a ponytail.
** Some say the game itself is this since it was in development for ''five years'' yet it's considered one of the worst games to come out for its era.
** The sex scenes... featuring both participants fully clothed. One scene is repeated, and there's only a handful of female character models (black, blonde, redhead, and brunette).
** Some reviewers take special mention how ''even the music and sound effects'' are lazy and lame, and how a game not even putting the effort in to create decent sound is an indication for how little effort they put into everything else.
** An environmental kill in the church where you fight King Dick has Jake repeatedly slam an enemy's head against a pew. The pew is DESTRUCTIBLE and King Dick spends the entire sequence throwing DYNAMITE around. When the pew is destroyed, the hotspot remains and Jake will simply [[http://i.imgur.com/U3lCKGh.gif slam the guy's head into nothing]].

** A rare meta example: shortly after its release, the Steam version went on sale for a whopping ''160% off,'' making it '''''impossible to purchase due to breaking the pricing system.''''' Due to this anomaly, it was pulled from the store entirely; thus this version has lead many to KeepCirculatingTheTapes.



* PortingDisaster: The PC port is essentially a straight console emulation, with ''no'' effort put into adapting it to the PC. There are no graphics options (you can't even change the resolution!), you can't rebind the keys, and even the mouse controls are sluggish and unresponsive due to being some kind of gamepad emulation rather than a true mouse solution.

* SignatureScene: The part where Jake murders a bunch of civilians and police to steal a truck and drive it into a power plant to turn off an electric fence has become this, for all the [[MoralEventHorizon wrong]] [[ComplexityAddiction reasons]].

* Honestly, the soundtrack is probably the only remotely decent part of the game. That's not to say that it redeems the game in any way. If anything, it says more about the incompetence of the game as a whole than the quality of the music.
