to:

* UselessUsefulSpell: Some combinations of skills and augmentations can lead to results that, while awesome, are not really applicable in the game. For example, maxing out swimming skills and getting an lung augmentation might allow a player to swim like ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}, but there is no place that really benefits from being able to swim ''that'' well, especially when expendable items like [[ArtificialGill aqualungs]] can get players past the worst of it.

* ConspiracyKitchenSink: One of the best sinks around. All conspiracy theories are true, and all at the same time. The game even has references to ''Literature/TheManWhoWasThursday''--one of the earliest grand conspiracy thrillers.

* DullSurprise: [[PlayerCharacter JC Denton]]. Partly due to the monotone attempt at DirtyHarry, and partly due to the limitations of the Unreal engine.

** Its also true that the world was doing an awful lot better in 2027 then it is in 2052. It looks less advanced in the present because as far as most people are concerned; ''it is''.

* ArtisticLicenseMedicine: Ambrosia is stated to be a vaccine. It completely cures the recipient of Gray Death and provides them with immunity from it for the next two days, at which time they will be susceptible to it once again. That's not how vaccines work. Vaccines stimulate the immune system to provide [[AcquiredPoisonImmunity acquired immunity]], typically using a weaker form of the microbe that causes them. This immunity cannot wear off after two days and certainly can't be applied retroactively.
