* HelloBoys: The ''very first thing'' you see in the game is a stripper wearing pasties. If you have a new copy of the game, it came with a code to remove said pasties.



* ScrewedByTheNetwork: The developer, Pandemic, was bought up ElectronicArts due to their success with ''{{Mercenaries}}'', but the sequel to that game bombed badly. As a result, the dev team was broken up after being allowed to finish this title.

* PublicDomainArtifact: On one mission, you're sent to recover an artifact that the Germans are trying to get their hands on. It's strongly implied to be the Holy Grail, although [[TheUnreveal you never actually see it]].

** A great tune that fits perfectly with the setting [[AnachronismStew if you ignore that it was not composed until 1964.]]

* HardModeFiller: Near the beginning of the game, you are captured in [[spoiler: Dierker's base]]. Near the end of the game you fly back there. Only this time it's filled to the brim with Terror Squad members.



** The Wulf Tank could be considered as one. It is impossible to hijack and must be stolen, and you can only collect it once you've collected "every other non-tank in the game". However, it's extremely strong and durable, with rockets barely denting it. The average player will most likely only see it during 1 early mission and at level 5 alarms.

* MacGuffin: The artifact that Sean has to retrieve for Wilcox in one mission. It's mysterious, in a huge glowing chest, and Wilcox is very adamant that Sean must not learn what it actually is. Therefore, the player doesn't either, and after the mission it's never mentioned again. Though if one goes around the area you found it, there is some people chattering thinking it was Napoleon's treasure.

* PlayerHeadquarters: Having correctly deduced that MostGamersAreMale, the developers took the next logical step and placed the player's hideout inside a strip club. However, it's also a case of HiddenInPlainSight, since the club is a major Nazi hangout.

* VideoGameCaringPotential: You can save Parisians from firing squads.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Or you can let them die.


Added DiffLines:

* WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou: If you or any of your named allies die, it's game over. This is doubly weird [[spoiler: when Luc is trapped under fallen rocks]]. If you kill him, or he dies in the ongoing firefight, it's game over. However, once the shooting stops, he is mercy-killed almost immediately.
