** A similar problem occurs with Trafficking. Even with a fully upgraded character, you can still run into issues not unlike Snatch. By the time you reach the hard and medium missions, it's not uncommon for you to have a conga-line of trucks with brutes and helicopters on your tail at all times. Add in the limited ammo and certain missions not giving you explosives and you got a mission that is much more frustrating than it should.

On the bright side you're allowed to get into other vehicles even from the beginning, so there's nothing stopping you from bringing your own upgraded vehicle, or even a tank if you've managed to get one.

Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Kiki DeWynter could count. She appears to be slightly more dominant as a character than Viola and isn't even remotely intimidated by Killbane, who is practically twice her size and five times as strong. Sadly, she is killed off around halfway through the game and used to begin Viola's HeelFaceTurn. This is mitigated somewhat by her appearance in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowGatOutOfHell'', but this troper certainly felt that Kiki would've been a more interesting defector than Viola.

* DudeNotFunny: The Ho Boat, wherein you [[spoiler:take over a human trafficking operation]], has received quite a bit of flak.
** The dev team seems to acknowledged that this wasn't meant to be perceived as a good thing. The achievement asks if what you decided has left you "happy with yourself."
** One mission has the Boss trying to get to Killbane by eliminating his opponents for a wrestling match. The first target is done away with by making it look like he's killed a number of people before killing himself. The unfunny part kicks in with several possible mentions of [[Wrestling/ChrisBenoit steroids and how people will blame the killings on roid rage.]]

** To some fans, Shaundi became this, despite being relatively popular in the previous game. New appearance, [[TookALevelInJerkass new personality]], and [[TheOtherDarrin new voice]] resulted in making her so unrecognizable and unlikable that many fans didn't even realize she was the same character until her name is mentioned.

* WTHCastingAgency: For some reason, THQ[=/=]Volition decided to cast Wrestling/HulkHogan, who's about as American as baseball, to voice Mexican luchador Angel de la Muerte. Hogan [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent makes no attempt to put on any Latino accent]], and has a reputation of being a shitty actor (even though his performance in this game was pretty decent all things considered). Some argue that it would have been more appropriate for Hogan to voice Killbane instead, since Killbane's character rivals [[{{Heel}} Hollywood Hogan]] in many ways. (They're both older, balding blond wrestlers who turned on their best friends/tag team partners out of spite, became leaders of "gangs", are obsessed with their wrestling personas and have egos the size of Canada.)

*** Although they're easier if you take advantage of the MacrossMissileMassacre that the helicopter provides, which replaces homing missiles for the ability to spam the everliving hell out them. This makes it easier to hit something when you have about 12 heading for a general area. Also, while the machine gun may not be as powerful, but it is instant and takes about just as long to blow up a car from startup as the minigun does. This makes that helicopter more DifficultButAwesome than the one Perice has you use.

** Killbane is also one of the most disliked antagonists in the series mainly for being forced into the role of the main villain despite being the most shallow and uninteresting of the bad guys.
