* [[BannedInChina Banned In Germany]]: Totally expected. Didn't stop us from importing...
* DuelingGames: This and ''VideoGame/{{inFamous}}'', which also features a man with superpowers in a New York-like city with LeParkour, and which came out a few weeks earlier. Do not [[FandomRivalry mention one on a forum for the other]].
** [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]] reviewed both, and decided to compare. His 'scientific method' ended up with the result that both games are on par with each other. In other words, neither is better than the other.
*** Yahtzee did add a tie-breaker: Whichever game's design team sent him a picture of the other lead character in women's lingerie would have their game declared better. Both teams sent in a picture, but Yahtzee gave it to ''[=inFamous=]'', [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/editorials/op-ed/6228-Yahtzees-Prototype-vs-InFamous-Challenge.4 with a picture by Sucker Punch featuring Alex Mercer in a pink nightie on a unicorn]]. He reiterated that both games were very good (recommending buying them both, which is astonishing considering his [[AccentuateTheNegative review style]]).
---->"Thanks to Radical Entertainment and Sucker Punch Productions for being such good sports. [[SickAndWrong You sick, sick fucks."]]
* HeAlsoDid: Dennis Detwiller, the head writer for the game (but not the comics or sequel), also wrote material for ''TabletopGame/DeltaGreen''; in some regards it almost feels like a PerspectiveFlip of the ''Delta Green'' series; the shady governmental body operating above the law are the antagonists and the horrific abomination is the protagonist.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Depending on whether or not you pay much attention to the Web Of Intrigue, you can hear various famous voice actors playing extras. Such as:
** [[Anime/CodeGeass Kururugi Suzaku]]
** [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Hatake Kakashi]]
** [[Anime/CowboyBebop Spike Speigel]]
** [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed Desmond Miles]]/[[{{Uncharted}} Nathan Drake]]
** [[TransformersArmada Red Alert]]
** And so on...
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: There was going to be co-op play, but it was dropped.
** Early in the game's development, the official website had some story details that were later removed. For instance, Alex's mother would have been a central character as the CEO of [=GenTek=]. Another (heavily censored) document talks about the great influenza epidemic that broke in 1918 in the U.S.; it is hinted that influenza was just a cover story, and the outbreak was something else entirely, possibly a natural outbreak of the original Redlight virus. None of this is mentioned in either game.
