Added DiffLines:

* CultClassic: It has definitely become one since its original release, with many fans still holding out for a sequel years later as the original publisher has many times acknowledged the fandom's appreciation of the game.


Added DiffLines:

** Honestly, Colonel Bulba's infiltration of the Resistance becomes this when in spite of his success in orchestrating Tatarin's murder, he still provided invaluable assistance to Chris and his allies until they were no longer of use to him, thus setting the stages for his own defeat when Chris rallies the survivors for a major counterattack against the Soviets' main base, galvanizing the nationwide resistance.

* WhatAnIdiot: How was the US government so completely unprepared for a Soviet invasion even after drones appeared over their skies across the country? What were they doing while trying to make the public believe that these were merely "weather balloons"?

Added DiffLines:

** To make matters worse, even after Soviet drones are sighted all across the nation the government waves them off as simply being ''weather balloons''; Seems unlikely the U.S. government would keep the public ignorant and fail to prop up its national defenses when it knew the truth of what was coming.

Added DiffLines:

* IdiotPlot: A mild case; there's no indication that the United States Army put up much of a fight against the Soviet invasion, and news reports show that the Soviets easily overran the country from coast to coast with very little effort. The brothers don't even realize there's an invasion taking place right outside until Troy is being held at ''gunpoint''.
** Further compounding this is the ease at which the USSR managed to conquer the rest of the world with apparently little real resistance. Even after South America has fallen, the US remained blissfully content in daily life until the moment New York is crawling with enemy soldiers.

** The mission where you personally, and ALONE, take on an entire soviet base. Stealth is of utmost importance, but once you [[spoiler: kill Tatarin]], the entire base is on you with Hind Gunships.
