*** AccentuateTheNegative: A more charitable interpretation of the critics' complaints is that Isakovich's [[ContrivedCoincidence contrived coincidences]] meant that he somehow managed to meet so many faults within the Soviet system one after another. It's more justifiable when he was a lieutenant (later captain), but when he resigns his commission to become a soldier-journalist, it becomes borderline ridiculous. Meanwhile, the brutality of the Nazi occupation was only briefly mentioned, unless FridgeHorror sets in. E.g. while it is mentioned that Majdanek witnessed atrocities, only those who read up know that it was one of the many [[spoiler: extermination camps set up by the Nazis]] in Poland during the war.

** Soviet Scout Sniper squads used to be able to garrison into [=M3A1=] Scout Cars. With a bit of micromanagement this would allow the Snipers to work their magic against infantry while keeping far away from any potential Wehrmacht attackers for a while since the vehicles needed to catch the Scout Car would take a fair bit more time to get and just about anything on foot would have no chance of catching it, it was basically free map-control and enemy losses for sufficiently skilled players

*** Volksgrenadiers' veterancy bonuses used to include a lot of received accuracy reductions. With their Panzerschreck upgrade that used upon vehicles let them gain veterancy much faster, it was a frequent complaint Volksgrenadiers with Panzerschrecks could quickly become only slightly less than bulletproof as they ran past Allied infantry to shoot their Panzerschrecks at Allied tanks. Said Obersoldaten had no trouble taking care of those Allied infantry anyway.

** Company of Heroes 2 got a very negative reception in Russia due to its portrayal of the war. Many players and critics felt that it was based more on Western bias and cliches rather than actual fact; making the Soviets out to be an "evil empire", compared to the positive portrayal of the American forces in the first game. Russian publisher 1C-Softclub stopped distribution of the game after receiving player feedback as well as a petition. Relic meanwhile defended their portrayal of events, stating that many of the campaign's criticized aspects, such as scorched earth, human wave tactics, and retreating men being executed, were genuine and documented occurrences.

* BrokenBase: The British in ''Tales of Valor''. 'Roo rushes. Don't dare mention if they are overpowered on the Relic forums, because you ''will'' learn what it's like to be on the receiving end of a Firestorm barrage.

** The Oberkommando West's Obersoldaten unit is the target of other unit's dialogue calling them fanatics, wear the Waffen-SS Erbsenmuster "pea-dot" camouflage pattern, and the words "Waffen" and "Honor Guard" appear in places relating them in the game's code; implying the Obersoldaten were based on some sort of elite Waffen-SS formation such as the 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler before they were simply given a more generic name (that basically means "senior soldiers", without much actual use of such a term)

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: The "Panzer Elite" seem to actually be the [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons Waffen-SS]], but that was probably a few UnfortunateImplications too far in the already delicate balancing act of portraying Axis forces as protagonists.
