* ValuesDissonance: The game's (failed) attempts at satire and dark humor and heavy use of racial stereotyping for laughs wouldn't even be accepted in the planning stages.

* HarsherInHindsight: The game's premise where chaos in Los Angeles (such as virus outbreak, riots, unnecessary violence, militarized police, and racial disparities) ensues have become this regarding the UsefulNotes/COVID19Pandemic and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Floyd_protests 2020 George Floyd riots]], in which the elements within the plot look eerily similar. Even American [=McGee=] himself pointed it out [[https://twitter.com/americanmcgee/status/1267312428129239040 according to a Twitter post back in June 1st]]!

* SpecialEffectsFailure: The game looks absolutely cheap and outdated, even by budget game standards. Not only that much more visually impressive and technically advanced games like VideoGame/Doom3 and VideoGame/HalfLife2 came out two-years prior, but the first VideoGame/GearsOfWar would come out two months before this game came out. The game sound-design is also very piss-poor, with poor audio mixing, crappy and wimpy sound effects, and heaving usage of stock-sounding music.
* TheScrappy: Anthony, not only is he a complete self-centered Main/{{Jerkass}} who only cares about himself, but he is also an obnoxious, poorly-written pastiche of Creator/DaveChappelle with an grating, high-pitched voice who frequently spouts-out an barage of unfunny one-liners.

To keep this in perspective, Civvie 11 compare the game's satire to that to a Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg movie or [[Series/MindOfMencia Carlos Mencia's]] stand-up routines.

* BileFascination: The game is only known due to it's mostly negative critical reception, getting mostly scores below 3 out of 10, and especially after being shitted on by WebVideo/Civvie11.

* MostAnnoyingSound:
** All the screams and grunts in the game, due to barely sounding like they came from a human being.
** Anthony's frequent one-liners will frequently drive many gamers crazy.

The game sound-design is also very piss-poor, with poor audio mixing, very little sound effects, and every character having the same stock scream and grunt effects as everyone else.

* UncertainAudience: One of the biggest criticisms of the game. The game is far too violent and inappropriate for younger gamers but far too stupid and juvenile for anyone over 17.
