YMMV / Red Alert 3: Paradox

  • Crazy Awesome: In one fan art, the reason why the Soviets do not use airplane bombs for their honey deliveries (It Makes Sense in Context) is explained: a War Bear jumped at the MiG Fighter about to drop the bomb, clawed it in half and upon landing ate all the honey.
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: The cynicism in the setting and the fact that Word of God says the endings will not be particularly uplifting to feel like this.
  • Les Yay: The Talon have two female background characters in a "more than professional relationship" with each other.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Some of the fandom's reaction to the Talon revamp.
  • Nightmare Fuel: A persistent bug has been reported where the corpses of killed AI units will drag themselves along the ground after player units.
    • The setting itself, behind the saccharine window dressing, is terrifying. Forget the progress of the Allies, forget the comical villany of the Soviets, forget the anime-esque stylings of the Empire. The Allies have chosen to sacrifice the people for the good of all. The Soviets are corrupted, maybe beyond saving. The Empire is filled with mad psychics. Not to mention the terrors of the other new factions in the setting. The silly writing and setting are now a thin veneer of mania hiding terror, war, and poverty.
    • The Protectorate's backstory turns the setting into a rather Lovecratian affair; The Icon is a truly terrifying concept.
  • Tear Jerker: The fact that the mod itself, after years of time and effort, could never be released.
