Added DiffLines:

* GameBreakingBug: If you customize your bike with parts that extend wider than the body of the bike, the game will update the bike's hitbox to match. While this sounds like a perfectly reasonable thing to do on paper, there is a problem: Several bike riding sections require you to slide through narrow gaps, and any contact with the obstacle will be an immediate fail. If you customize your bike big enough, getting through these gaps will be completely impossible. Fixing the issue is easy since you can just back out from the mission and customize your bike again. The hard part is figuring out ''that'' is the reason you keep failing.


* YouHaveFailedMe: Greasy Steve not only assasinates Meathook for losing to Jake, but also does it so he wouldn't [[HeKnowsTooMuch tell Jake important information on the Devil's Hand.]] Deconstructed in that ''no one'' in the gang approves of Steve doing this, least of all Triple 6.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Jake walks up to a woman working on a truck cab and mentions he never saw a woman working on a truck before. Since the game takes place in the early 70s this kind of makes sense (as Jake's childhood took place in the late 50s and 60s at a time when StayInTheKitchen was culturally expected), but it still comes off as overtly rude even by the standards of the time. She doesn't take kindly to his sexism but otherwise remains amicable.

** At one point, a prostitute insults Jake by calling him "one of those civil rights protester assholes".

* DefiantToTheEnd: As opposed to every other Devil's Hand member Jake interrogates before murdering, Anvil does nothing but mock Jake before he gets his throat slit.



* MouthFlaps: The game sort of tries to hide it, just barely matching the open-shut mouth movements to the characters talking. The result was described by [[ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]] as "big flapping mouths like upside down pedal bins".



* ObviousBeta: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VA3vijm17Bs The game is just infested with bugs.]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zo2k7nm-4nc Lots of them. The AI and combat are broken as well.]] A lot of this is due to a massive change in focus from the original project that saw much of the gameplay experience cut down severely.
* OffModel: The character models look cheap and dated, with stiff, plastic-looking hair. Jake himself looks a little like Eddie Riggs from ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'', but ''Ride to Hell'' lacks that game's intentionally cartoony graphical charm.



* RescueSex: Crossing over with FetishRetardant, this happens a lot, and in the most inappropriate situations possible. For example, the scene in which a girl decides to have sex with the player character immediately after you kill the man who was ''trying to rape her, in the same room as his bloody corpse''.
* RightThroughHisPants: The sex scenes are done with nobody taking any clothes off. In some cases, it's flat-out ''impossible'' for them to be having sex dressed as they are (like one girl wearing overalls).

It was released for the UsefulNotes/{{PlayStation 3}} and UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}}, and its PC version was distributed through UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}. The game is absolutely ''notorious'' for being a blatantly unfinished and sparsely-tested trainwreck with a fair bit of tastelessness thrown in for good measure. The Steam version quickly dropped the price to $5, but was later pulled from the store outright in October 2014.

* AbsoluteCleavage: Brandy's shirt is so low-cut that it's a miracle her rack isn't spilling out.

''Ride to Hell: Retribution'' is a BeatEmUp / ThirdPersonShooter 3rd-person action/driving game released in June 2013.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: When you beat a bunch of matches at the boxing ring in Meathook's mission, Meathook riles up the crowd by saying that Jake has no honor and that there is honor in this ring... apparently except for the guy he randomly stabbed right as he said that and where he goes outside and kills people.

Added DiffLines:

** Colt favors guns, as his nickname indicates. Jake kills him with his own Colt revolvers.


Added DiffLines:

** Even though Meathook isn't killed by Jake, his death is still karmic - he gets impaled through the chest.


* EvilIsPetty: Caesar's entire reason for putting out a kill order on the entire Conway family was because he ''fairly'' lost a bet that ''he made'', over his girlfriend with Toledo Conway, Jake's dad. Afterwards, they made another bet, which Caesar won. Toledo, however, [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere decided to run away with his wife]], and Caesar tracked them down and killed them both, which means that he was only going after the surviving children [[ForTheEvulz for the heck of it]].

Also, the fact that Caesar was able to move on to another woman and [[spoiler:father a child]] afterward shows that Jake's mom ultimately wasn't that important to him after all.
