** The German counterattack in "Tom and Jerry" heavily resembles the similar German attack from the FinalBattle in ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'', with SS soldiers attacking through an urban area supported by tanks, with Baker providing sniper support from a church tower with a Springfield not unlike Pvt. Jackson.

* ShoutOut: In "No Better Spot to Die" and "Bloody Gulch", one will notice that, [[spoiler: after Baker wakes up and/or Red manages to return back to their own lines just after most of Mac's men are killed]], there's a knocked out Panzer IV stuck near part of the hill the paratroopers are defending from, an obvious nod to a similar scene in the same battle from ''Series/BandOfBrothers'', with the only difference being that in that series it was instead a Stug Assault gun.

* ShoutOut: Quite a few to other works set in Normandy around the time of the D-Day invasion.

** By ''Hell's Highway'', however, this trope is deconstructed, when [[spoiler: Franky]] doesen't like receiving this kind of treatment from Baker, and ends up in a heavily implied case of SuicideByCop. Hartsock himself calls Baker out on it.

''Furious 4'' was originally set to be a sequel/spin-off. According to Pitchford, the game was a radical departure from the realistic and somber tone of the series and could had been best be described as ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' meets ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}''. However, the game was cancelled in favor of the Hero-shooter ''VideoGame/Battleborn''.

After Battleborn's finacial failure, development started on both a new ''Brothers in Arms'' and ''Borderlands 3''.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: In ''Road to Hill 30'' and ''Earned in Blood'', poor tactical decisions can get your squad mates killed, but they always reappear in the next mission, unless they get KilledOffForReal: Subverted in ''Hell's Highway'', which introduces mid-level cutscenes to the series: if a squad mate is lost, instead of being killed he is merely wounded and can be seen writhing on the ground, and are then conveniently healed for the next cutscene.

At the end, frustratedly getting no response on the radio for support in an overwhelming situation, the Battle of Bloody Gulch with tanks oncoming without any anti-tank weaponry among the squad themselves, he pulls out a pistol, jumps on top of their cover, trench, and shoots at the enemy tanks screaming for them to shoot him.him.

** Sergeant Hassey and Leggett in ''Road to Hill 30''. They're usually not with you, but they certainly aren't sitting around until next you meet.



* ItsUpToYou: While you'll usually have an Assault squad to risk flanking the Germans, there's plenty of times the terrain won't fit the squad to let them be in cover effectively while flanking the enemy, which means...you guessed it, you're gonna have to put the rounds into Jerry there.
** If you don't have a tank in ''Road to Hill 30'', that means you personally are going to have to handle enemy tanks...and it kind of might be easier for you to anyway.



* PurposelyOverpowered: The sniper rifle in ''Road to Hill 30''. It always kills in one shot, barely has any aim sway unlike every other weapon in the game meaning you don't really have to flank to expect to hit the enemy unlike usual and in the two times you are given it, you are going to '''need''' it with all the Germans that will be swarming you.



* UnexpectedGameplayChange: In ''Hell's Highway'', you occasionally take control of a British tank commander in a Sherman Firefly.

* UnexpectedGameplayChange: The end of ''Road to Hill 30'''s final mission, "No Better Spot To Die" largely abandons the suppressing-and-flanking mechanics you use for the rest of the game, because you have to reach the allied tanks ''alone'' and there's three enemy tanks between you and them (and you have absolutely no anti-tank weaponry or grenades). If you waste time trying to suppress the Germans on foot in your way, a enemy tank is going to drive up to you.

Added DiffLines:

* CallAHitPointASmeerp: In the third game, instead of "health," hit points are represented by "luck"; when taking enemy fire, a red tint will fill the edges of the screen, representing bullets flying close to the player as they're being shot at. If you don't get out of the fire soon enough, a bullet will hit you for an [[OneHitKill instant game over...]] Taking cover allows your "luck" to [[RegeneratingHealth recover]] so you can get back in the fight.
