Added DiffLines:

* DemonicSpiders: Shocktroopers during a scout rushing strat. Even worse if they have debuffs.
** Hell, any unit with debuffing becomes this.

* TheyJustDidntCare: If you look carefully at some of the "English" documents, you can see a checklist of items from the game (with one InfinityPlusOneSword on it) and a briefing file that looks like a corporate letter from Sega.

Added DiffLines:

* GameBreakingBug: Do not, under any circumstances, run the [=PC=] version with unlimited [=FPS=], as the port has an unintentional bug in regards to framerate. Specifically, enemy shock-troopers have their weapon's rate of fire TIED TO FRAME RATE. Give them unlimited frame rate and they'll melt anything that's not the Edelweiss in two seconds or less.

** Selvaria, even with the Ruhm, doesn't hold a candle to Jaeger and the Lupus Regnum two chapters later. Chapter 17 is without a doubt the hardest operation in the game

*** ...Unless you know the trick to this level. If you let the APC make its first move unhindered, it places itself in a spot right near your highest placed troop. If it is a Shocktrooper, just move them behind the APC and destroy it. Basically, if you know the trick, it becomes one of the easiest missions in the entire game.
** "Chapter 17: Breaching [[spoiler:Jaeger's]] Blockade" is another incredibly difficult one; even if you know what's going to happen, you're under a lot of heavy tank fire and the enemy commander is incredibly strong.

Added DiffLines:

** The Imperial characters. Are they ''really'' one-dimensional CardCarryingVillain who deserve no love because no matter how you spin it, imperialism, racism and invasion are bad, period? Or are they capable of holding their own sympathetic qualities and therefore can be liked on their own? This mostly applied to just Maximillian (having his own DarkAndTroubledPast of coming out from a horrible succession war that costed him his family, and [[EvenEvilHasStandards having strict discipline when it comes to warfare]]), Selvaria (has her own tragic past and unrequited genuine love on Maximillian as well as being [[AFatherToHisMen A Mother To Her Men]]) and Jaeger (very affable and laid back as well as commanding a good deal of competence, as well as actually fighting because his own homeland is on the line). Gregor on the other hand tends to fall into HateSink because he has no such past and looks more like 'evil just because'.

* TheScrappy: Gens. Gregor and Damon, though this is probably intentional. Also applies to pretty much every person with the Potential of "Darcsen Hater" in the game, notably Cezary and Theold - both are also disliked even more so because these two characters are rather low-standing members of their respective troop classes.

** On the other hand, the control prompts don't even mention that you can use your mouse at all, particularly noticeable at the shooting controls. It still has a "Press Start Button" title page and the mouse doesn't work on the menus, forcing you to use WSAD/Spacebar or Up-Down-Left-Right/Enter. F and Escape open up two different menus too, which comes off as a little obtuse although it makes more sense with a PS3 controller's Start and Select buttons.

* VindicatedByHistory: The game got little to no press during its initial PS3 release in 2008, although it gained a steady cult following due to its status as a SleeperHit, often stated as one of the must-play titles on the system. By the time the PC rerelease on Steam came around in 2014, the game skyrocketed to the top spots of the Steam and Green Man Gaming sales boards, beating out other newer titles released in the same week (which includes ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedUnity and VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare !''). Sega even acknowledged that the success on PC was far beyond their expectations.

*** Even just Penetrate by itself can be pretty effective. Using it on a Shocktrooper can allow you to slowly but surely chip away at the health of tough armored targets like [[spoiler:Jaeger's Lupus supertank, the Valkof lance tip, and even Valkyria Maximilian]].

** Welkin Order: Penetrate (Ignore Armor), Order: Attack Weak Point (every hit is a critical hit, as long as it does any damage at all.) Takes 5 turns, but whoever that's ordered those two items will shred any tank or anything else in their vicinity.
