* 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.

* CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys: Averted, France is one of the few countries that still had a resistance movement.

* 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.

** With his weak stomach and submissive attitude, he's implied to be a poor SS (in fact a poor soldier in general).

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: A couple of minor ones: Several Nazi characters are seen smoking and there are even advertisements for Wolf brand cigarettes seen in several places. Historically, the NSDAP banned smoking in public buildings, party offices and public transportation and conducted various anti-smoking campaigns. Also, the game uses the phrase "Near Stettin, Poland" as though Germany actually ceded territory to a subjugated Poland. There is also a letter that refers to Frankfurt on the Oder as being on the German-Polish border ''before'' the war had even begun.

* 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]].

** The Nazi Lunar Base has a section where B.J. approaches a machine in a giant dome that resembles the [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Space Jockey]] telescope and familiar theme music from the film even begins to play. It also has venting which is lit like and resembles the ''[[Film/2001ASpaceOdyssey Discovery One]]'' and is manned by soldiers whose uniforms make them resemble [[Franchise/StarWars a different kind of storm-trooper]].

* VideogameCaringPotential: Some of the side missions -- recovering medicine for a sick concentration camp inmate, finding a widow's lost wedding ring, locating Max's lost toys, and so forth -- are purely optional and dependant on the kindness of the character (and player) to complete.
