* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* LostInMediasRes: The game starts with Jake driving his bike, interspersed with scenes of him engaging in a turret sequence in the woods, having a fistfight in front of a waterfall, and jumping over a helicopter on said bike. The first two scenes are never explained or reappear again, and the third has little relevance in the storyline.

* FreudWasRight: As WebVideo/ProJared put it:
