* ClicheStorm: A [[spoiler:fake]] ArtifactOfDoom is found on a planet about to be strip-mined by a MegaCorp, and suddenly all hell breaks loose? Somehow, the [[ActionSurvivor engineer]] is better at surviving than the [[RedShirtArmy actual military]]? There's a massive GovernmentConspiracy about the [[OurZombiesAreDifferent freaky space zombies]]? Fun, but not exactly breaking new ground.

** FridgeLogic: Instead of [[spoiler: only preventing Isaac from running outside of a somewhat generous circular area but otherwise only occasionally attacking]], why doesn't the Hive Mind just swipe its tentacles madly at Isaac [[spoiler: as it did to Kendra]]?

** At any rate, the NightmareFuel is restored if you simply look at the [[spoiler: chunk of Aegis VII that's free-falling ''just'' above where you fight the Hive Mind]].

** There is also quite a bit of similarity to the UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast game ''VideoGame/{{Carrier}}''. In that game, set in a future where a resource crisis has caused a war, a rescue team is sent to a huge aircraft carrier that's failing to respond. One of the rescuers, the main character has a brother onboard the ship [[spoiler: who ends up killing himself during the course of the game]]. They end up trapped on the dilapidated vessel after crashing their helicopter due to a malfunctioning defense system, and discover an ancient virus that was picked as secret cargo has transformed the crew into monsters and is steadily infesting the ship with plant matter that has to be navigated around. The main character has to fight to get off of the ship, while repairing what faults he can to stay alive and get rescued. The central character receives objectives from other characters mostly through radio communication, deals with the crazed ship's doctor who has been conducting experiments with the virus and one of the weapons available for use is a welding gun.

* ThatOneBoss: the [[spoiler: giant space slug]] boss at the end of chapter eight involves using the most infuriating turret system ever to defeat. You start with 100% shields. One hit from a projectile knocks 10% of your shields down. The projectiles all move far, far faster than you can turn the gun. The kicker? One of the secret achievements for the game is [[spoiler: to defeat the boss with over 50% of the turret's shields remaining.]] Uh, no. This is hardly an issue with the PC version, which has the option to customize your aiming sensitivity. One wonders why the dev team didn't give console gamers a similar option, especially since most modern console shooters do.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: InUniverse. RIGs have a vastly expanded Waypoint function in 2 and 3, able to point out shops, save stations, and upgrade benches. Stasis also regenerates by itself, presumably by incorporating movement-powered generators. They also have intergrated manouvering thrusters. 3 shows how far humanity has come, as shops are downgraded to suit kiosks that require one to find resources yourself, rather than drawing from a centralized distribution system; as well as requiring ammo and health kits to be hand-crafted at a bench.
