* DisappointingLastLevel: From a historical perspective, the final level is a departure from the historical accuracy the series was known fo - while most people will accept that an Airborne assault on a Flaktürm (which never happened in real life) is [[RuleOfCool pretty awesome]], filling it with ''Videogame/{{Wolfenstein}}''-esque [[DemonicSpiders Storm Elites]] and more drab concrete and less SceneryPorn than earlier levels was a step too far.

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: Compared to preceeding ''Medal of Honor'' titles like ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonorVanguard'', this game was praised for being a significant improvement in gameplay and graphics, especially with regards to the improved EquipmentUpgrade system and level design.


** The latter, however, are infamous for how just overpowered they are. In the first place, they are ''absurdly'' tough - if you think round or two to the head should kill them, you're wrong. They just lumber onwards like the Franchise/{{Terminator}}. Even grenades need two solid hits to kill them. In the second place, they carry MG42 heavy machine guns which are usually found (both in-game and in real life) in static positions, making them essentially walking turrets with overwhelming firepower; and lastly, they aren't any less deadly in close quarters combat, and they can bludgeon you if you try and get up close.

* DemonicSpiders: The Panzergrenadiers and Storm Elites are known for this reputation. The former ones are infamous by their inherent overkill tendences, as they wield bazookas as if they were sniper rifles and are obsessively fixated on the player, which means he gets invariably hunted down with highly destructive shells as soon as one of the troops appears around.

* VindicatedByHistory: If Steam reviews and Youtube comments are to be believed, a lot of people who have played this game will say that its aged well, and is usually seen in a better light.

* ItsShortSoItSucks: One common complaint is the number of missions and the overall length of the game. Though considering that there were only a handful of times Airborne forces were parachuted in in Europe during World War II, this is sort-of justified.
