Added DiffLines:

* AllohistoricalAllusion: One of the newspaper articles you can find mentions that the name of the first Nazi astronaut on the moon was Hans Armstark. "Stark" of course, is German for "Strong"; therefore, their name is Hans [[UsefulNotes/TheSpaceRace Armstrong]].

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: London and Berlin aren't particularly close to each other. At least not close enough that BJ can drive from London to Berlin(though several implied checkpoints) in anything less then a few hours. Yet somehow [[spoiler: BJ manages to reach the rebel HQ in Berlin while Nazi attack (that started when he reached London) is still ongoing]].

* CharacterDevelopment: In the first few games, B.J. was a voiceless, expressionless cipher. In the ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein2009'', he's a cocky badass. By the beginning of ''New Order'', B.J. becomes a fatalist wreck with the "thousand yard stare", serious PTSD, and an obsession to kill Deathshead (and Nazis). That's ''before'' his squad is wiped out, a comrade dissected, and Nazis take over the world, after which things only get worse for him.

** After stealing the stealth helicopters, B.J. asks Caroline how she survived [[spoiler:her apparent death]] in VideoGame/{{Wolfenstein 2009}}. She has no idea - all she remembers is Hans Grosse shooting her, an explosion, and apparently being lifted up and out of the Veil.
** A small touch, but some of the in-game posters are defaced with the same symbol used in ''Videogame/{{Wolfenstein2009}}'' to mark the Kreisau Circle safehouses.

* SurvivalMantra: For when the situation is '''too much''' for even [[BadAss William Joseph "B.J." Blazkowicz]] to handle.

* EmbeddedPrecursor: Taking a nap on a specific bed in the base causes [=BJ=] to have a nightmare. Said nightmare is [=E1M1=] of ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D''.



* ObviousBeta: Came out with a massive Day One patch, and the PC version still had a lot of problems running on AMD graphic cards. Has the same texture pop-in problems ''Videogame/{{Rage}}'' had (though not quite as glaringly obvious as Rage was), an issue with the Tech 5 engine that's never been solved by Id almost three years after the earlier game came out, and framerate is often uneven. A little tinkering with the graphical options (a few effects do not improve the visuals much while being resource hogs, and texture problems are reduced by setting an higher FOV) makes things good even on mid-range systems, although it's still evident the PC version wasn't tested enough before release.

That's on top of there being a glitch in Chapter 14 where some collectibles disappear if you reload a post-death checkpoint. A little tinkering with the graphical options (a few effects do not improve the visuals much while being resource hogs, and texture problems are reduced by setting an higher FOV) makes things good even on mid-range systems, and said glitch repairs itself if you reload a checkpoint while still alive, although it's still evident the PC version wasn't tested enough before release.

* TheSlacker: It's surprising that Bubi is still only Untersturmführer (2nd lieutenant, give or take) at 28, especially when he's banging a Lieutenant Colonel. It's implied he's not a very good soldier, especially with the weak stomach and submissive attitude. Having the cloying pet name probably isn't getting him much respect either.



* [[TrophyWife TrophyBoyfriend]]: It's surprising that Bubi is still only Untersturmführer (2nd lieutenant, give or take) at 28, especially when he's banging a Lieutenant Colonel.
** With his weak stomach and submissive attitude, he's implied to be a poor SS (in fact a poor soldier in general).
