* PortingDisaster: The PC version of the game is widely regarded as the inferior version as the AI is not only dumber but also ''never'' moves their units, making them much easier to beat.

* SuperlativeDubbing: The German dub of the game is arguably even better than the original. It makes more frequent and clever use of military lingo, as well as greatly enhancing the personality of the individual pig soldiers by using more individualised naming patterns and a larger voice cast.
