* AcceptableBreaksFromReality: Obviously a guy with a .30-cal rifle can't really destroy a tank by shooting its gas cap. However, it is sufficiently difficult to pull off in-game, especially without first making a ranging shot (or a miss) that alerts the tank--and its big-ass gun--to your presence that doing so counts as a MomentOfAwesome



* HyperspaceArsenal: Averted. If it's in your inventory, it's visible either slung on Fairburne's back or holstered/clipped on his gear.



* JustAStupidAccent - the German freedom fighters have very annoying over-the-top German accents. And that's the least problem with their voice acting.

* JustAStupidAccent - the German freedom fighters have very annoying over-the-top German accents. And that's the least problem with their voice acting. Averted with enemies in missions, who speak either German or Russian as appropriate.



* SamusIsAGirl: You probably won't know it until the Kill Camera gives you a close look, and/or you hear them screaming, but some of the Soviet snipers you tangle with are women.



* UrbanWarFare: The Majority of the missions seem to take place in some sort of urban/base environment.

* WorldWarTwo: Played with. While the backdrop is very clearly the end of WWII, the setting is less about the end of the World Wars-era and more about the opening shots of the ColdWar.

* VideogameCrueltyPotential: Shoot to wound. Then shoot (ideally, shoot to wound) anyone who comes to help the wounded man as he cries out for help. He'll die without treatment after a few minutes, and you can just sit there and watch, or practice your grenade-lobbing skills, or run a good distance away and shoot him with the sniper rifle for long-distance kill points.

* HistoricalInJoke: The primary objective of the first mission is to prevent the defection of [[spoiler: Martin Bormann, Hitler's secretary, to the Soviets]] by assassinating him. Said target is historically one of the few V.I.P.s' in Berlin whose fate to this day remains unknown.
