** It might seem baffling at first glance that for all their advanced tech, the Martians seemed focused on taking over Britain rather than going for a wholesale global invasion. But considering the clout and prestige TheBritishEmpire had on the world stage, defeating "the bastion of human civilization" would be a demoralizing blow to the rest of humanity. At the same time, however, the Martians as simply too desperate and few to mount a large-scale invasion that a victory in Britain is enough for the immediate term.

* MostAnnoyingSound - There will come a time in the game where you will hear a non-stop steam of [[YouRequireMoreVespeneGas "our sectors are running low on X!"]]. This will happen frequently later on in the game.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome - The game uses the [=ULLAdubULLA=] remix album for its soundtrack, and while [[YourMileageMayVary YMMV]] as to whether it can hold a candle to Jeff Wayne’s original score, certain tracks (such as ''The Fighting Machine'') make for undeniably awesome battle music.

* FridgeBrilliance - Where is the rest of the British armed forces when their homeland is under threat? Probably fighting in other parts of the world against foreign powers taking advantage of the Martian invasion!

* MostWonderfulSound - When playing as the aliens, destroying an enemy base is marked by the Martians belting out their trademark "ULLAAA!"

* AdaptationDisplacement - Pleasingly averted. Like Jeff Wayne’s musical, it is far more faithful to the original novel than either of the well-known movies by virtue of being set in Victorian Britain. ** It also averts {{Aliens Are Bastards}}-related AdaptationDecay; the Martian campaign explains the mindset and motives of the invaders, to the point that the player can at least partially empathise with them.
