YMMV page for the overall series:
- Retroactive Recognition: If you don't recognize Grace Park, who plays Sandra Telfair, from Battlestar Galactica (Reimagined), you probably recognize her as Kono from Hawaii Five-0.
- Tear Jerker: In the cutscene that plays when starting Act IV of the Nod Campaign, it's hard not to feel some sympathy for the Nod soldier in the news video. Confronted with impossible odds, believing that all is lost, and spending his dying moments reciting a Nod prayer before GDI fires the ion cannon...
- That One Level: Nod's final mission, named Kane's Tower, requires the player to defend three Scrin Phase Generators from GDI, which sounds simple enough, until you realize that 1. the Scrin are hostile to you, making protecting them difficult, but they're also nowhere near powerful enough to stop GDI. 2. You start out with one medium sized base at tier 2, GDI starts with two tier 3 bases, one of which is larger then yours, and the other much larger. 3. GDI will happily build not one, but two Ion Cannons before you can even begin construction of your own Nuke. 4.GDI starts with a fully functional small airbase, which will bomb the Scrin to the ground if not disposed of 5. Your two starting tiberium fields are both in harms way, one from the Scrin, the other being the main avenue on GDI's attacks on your own base. 6. GDI is shelling the structures you're supposed to protect from the second the mission starts with unique artillery that out-ranges normal artillery by a factor of 5- captureable, sure, but only if you manage to get to it while simultaneously dealing with all the other difficulties at the same time with your very limited early game resources. Winning the mission often depends on luck more so then anything, as the GDI attacks on the Scrin vary in size, from manageable, to an armored column consisting of a dozen mammoth tanks supported by twice as many lighter vehicles and about as many infantry squads, as well as every single reinforcement support power in the GDI arsenal. Losing (which will happen very often) will earn you a chewing out by Kane himself, despite the fact that his request to protect the Scrin structures is completely unreasonable.
