* EliteMooks[=/=]HeavilyArmoredMook: The heavy weapons soldiers armed with MG48 Karabine heavy machineguns. On normal difficulty they've got the same stats as any other Mook, but on the highest difficulty they have twice as much health as a normal Mook.



* MooksButNoBosses: Every enemy in the game has the exact same stats (taking about 5 bullets to kill from the MP50 or tommy gun), and most tend to carry the same weapons as well. The only real standout are the heavy weapons soldiers, as they have unique movement animations and come armed with miniguns. President Stevenson has quite a bit more health than normal for some reason, but he's very much an optional fight since you can just shoot him in the face while he's talking.

** The heavy weapons soldiers armed with miniguns (MG48 Karabines) are very rare; there are only about 5 of them throughout the entire game. They behave like standard HeavilyArmoredMook enemies, with heavy firepower and a slow walk, but can't actually take more damage than normal enemies.

Despite an interesting plot, the game received generally very negative reviews. The criticisms include a flat, linear storyline that provided little characterization, a lackluster and unamusing multiplayer mode, and frustratingly uncooperative gameplay actions, such as climbing ladders. In response to the reviews, the developers have stated that their game was not intended for hardcore gamers, but rather a more casual audience.

Added DiffLines:

* HarderThanHard: "Insane" difficulty, which significantly increases the damage enemies do. However, their aim and reaction time remains the same, and you can still survive several hits before dying, making it actually reasonably manageable and a lot easier than, say, "Veteran" difficulty from ''Call of Duty''.

* DayOfTheJackboot

to:

* DayOfTheJackbootCheckpointStarvation: Checkpoints are spaced quite far apart, so if you die you'll be sent back pretty far.
* DayOfTheJackboot: Notably pre-dates both ''VideoGame/{{Homefront}}'' and ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'', though ''VideoGame/FreedomFighters'' came out a few years before it.

* GasMaskMooks: A number of German mooks wear gas masks.

to:

* GasMaskMooks: A number of German mooks wear gas masks. In the police station level this makes sense as they end up using gas grenades against you, but in other levels it just seems purely cosmetic.

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: For some reason, the Quisling President Stevenson has quite a bit more health than normal enemies (it takes a couple dozen rounds of MP50 fire to drop him) if you just stand around and let him talk until he pulls a pistol on you. If you shoot him in the face while he's talking like you're supposed to, he dies in one shot.

** You only fight "Vampyr" night-vision snipers in a single segment near the beginning of the game.

A UsefulNotes/WorldWarII AlternateHistory FirstPersonShooter that was developed by Spark Unlimited and published by Creator/{{Codemasters}} in 2008. On December 13, 1931, UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill was hit by a cab while visiting New York City. While in real life, Churchill was only mildly injured, in the game's universe, the accident causes his death. Years later, without Churchill's foresight and leadership, the United Kingdom falls to the [[ThoseWackyNazis Third Reich]] in 1940, and the rest of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East fall soon afterward. While in the United States, the nation chose an isolationist policy, implemented by Republican president Thomas E. Dewey (who [[DeweyDefeatsTruman defeated]] UsefulNotes/HarryTruman in 1948).

A period of development follows the success of the Axis Powers, transforming conquered Europe, Asia and Africa into the Greater German Reich and allowing allies Japan and Italy to share in the prosperity; at the same time, the Nazis start to built up their military. Eventually, in 1953, they launch a massive, surprise invasion on the U.S., one of the few nations that is still free from Nazi rule. The player takes control of Dan Carson, a New York construction worker, and joins the [[LaResistance American Resistance]] against the invaders.

* ActionCommands: Two different options: An instant kill, where Carson melees the Nazi soldier to death, or using him as a [[HumanShield human shield]]. Occasionally, a Nazi soldier will be standing near an interactive object, such as a furnace or a toilet, allowing Carson to perform an environmental kill with it.

** [[LyingCreator Said the developers]]. Except most of these are not actually in the game, [[BlandNameProduct just generic tanks]]. If you want to see those tanks realized, WarFrontTurningPoint (a CommandAndConquer [[RealTimeStrategy clone]]) is the game to play.
