* ContestedSequel: This game wasn't as well received as [[VideoGame/TrueCrimeStreetsOfLa the first title.]] But has its fans.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: You'd think Marcus's dad would have a larger influence on the story since how often he's mentioned at the beginning of the game and the fact you get to meet him face to face. But as it turns out, he just gives Marcus some side missions that have absolutely nothing to do with the main story and he's completely forgotten from the point you meet him personally and ownwards.
