* PortingDisaster: ''Enemy Unknown Plus'' on the Vita suffers from a massive amount of issues. Loading can take up to three minutes from startup to actually playing the game, and load times are still pretty long once you actually start playing. There are plenty of graphical glitches, which occasionally include not showing where a character's movement becomes dashing and the smoke from smoke grenades becoming invisible. The framerate also stutters every now and again. Using any item in a soldier's inventory when they're in cover has a chance of them clipping into it and being stuck and unable to move, even with explodes destroying the thing they were stuck on. And lastly, even if you do manage to get through everything, it has a tendency to crash later on in the game!

** The [[spoiler:XCOM Base Defense]] mission for those unprepared in "Enemy Within". Players may have heavily-wounded soldiers from the preceding Alien Base Assault mission, if not fatalities, and may be overall lacking in resources to field a proper defense. The justifiable but still very cruel lack of a pre-mission loadout option may also ruin any defenses if the top 4-6 members of the barracks aren't properly outfitted.

*** General Peter Van Doorn, a FourStarBadass [[IShallTauntYou who enthusiastically taunts his alien attackers]], and [[AFatherToHisMen expresses remorse for how many of his men were cut down by them]] ([[PapaWolf while promising to make the aliens pay for it in a]] RoaringRampageOfRevenge). Notably, in the ''Long War'' GameMod, the reward for extracting Van Doorn is ''having him resign from the UN, and join XCOM as a soldier!'' The sequel also acknowledges his popularity, allowing you to recruit him.

** The development of ''Enemy Unknown'' is attributed by some to an epic [[TheSpoonyExperiment "BETRAAAAAYAL! BETRAYAL! BETRAYED ME!! THIS GAME SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS!!!"]] in response to ''VideoGame/TheBureauXCOMDeclassified'', then a FPS simply named ''XCOM''.
