** Okay, so how did [=InGen=] obtain ''Mosasaurus'' DNA? Gerry even mentions that it would be next to impossible to find any. Your guess is as good as ours.
** The [[http://jurassicpark.wikia.com/wiki/Tylosaurus#Trivia wiki]] suggests that, at some point, a ''Mosasaurus'' may have swam into fresh water (much like a bull shark) and found itself in a swamp; this would have given mosquitoes the opportunity to feed off of it. Of course, this would have been a very rare occurrence and the odds of that DNA being preserved are even worse, but [=InGen=] ''does'' only need one sample...

* HilariousInHindsight: [[spoiler: Dr. Sorkin's death by being ''Mosasaurus'' chow]] was a death that actually showed up in [[spoiler: ''Film/JurassicWorld'' where Zara was eaten by a ''Mosasaurus''. Coincidentally, Zara was the first female to die in a movie while Laura was the first female to die in the whole franchise.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ViewerSpeciesConfusion: The mosasaur was thought to have been a ''Mosasaurus'' due to Sorkins labeling it as "Mosasaur" in her journal, though that term lacks the "-us" meaning it refers to the family Mosasauridae. The [=InGen=] Field Guide confirms the genus to be ''Tylosaurus''.

** The ''Troodons'' are among the franchise's most terrifying dinosaurs... Too bad their entire vocal library is made-up from three blatantly generic animal StockSoundEffects, namely a cougar's yowl, an elk's bugle and an alligator's hiss which can be heard anywhere.

** "Don't Remember You", which plays during Oscar's scuffle with the Velociraptor, in a StylisticSuck sort of way.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The rollercoaster ride and the ''Herrerasaurus'' attack. Its sole purpose is to delay the heroes until the rescue team arrive. The coaster is only given the briefest explanation, and nobody refers to it again. Moreover, the ''Herrerasaurus'' pack literally come out of nowhere, get whacked, and then never appear again. It's easy to mistake them for members of the ''Velociraptor'' species if you're not paying attention.

** Nima had no reason to crash the jeep at the beginning of episode one. If she hadn't, then she might have gotten out of there and been none the worse.

** It's hard to understand why Yoder and Oscar leave a wounded Vargas unattended during episode two, especially when Yoder wants to help him and there are dangerous creatures around.
** During episode three, Jess moves into the smaller parallel tunnel while Sorkin and her father argue over the lysine contingency. It's bad enough that she leaves the safety of the main tunnel and possibly lets the raptors breach the barrier, but on top of that the tunnel is in total darkness where just anything could sneak up on her.
** Gerry and Nima are separated from the others during episode four. They then have what can be an inordinately long conversation, during which time they are making virtually no progress towards the marine exhibit. This is all the more jarring when Gerry was getting worried over Jess's safety just a minute ago.
** In episode four, [[spoiler:Yoder]] runs for the can while mere feet away from the ''Tyrannosaurus''. This is a desperate move, yes, but then why -- instead of diving into the water or making a run for it -- does he stand there like a goof admiring his prize once he grabbed it? Did he happen to forget the multi-ton monstrosity standing next to him?
** [[spoiler: Nima, if you send her after the can instead of Jess.]] She stands there smiling for a few seconds, then suddenly forgets not to move when the T-rex starts to turn around. What makes it all the more ridiculous is that she actually stops moving for a few seconds after noticing the T-rex, making it look like she was going to use the tactic that had worked not two minutes ago.
** Dr. Sorkin. Despite rather clearly getting that it's what bit Nima, she later claims she had no idea that [[spoiler: the Troodon]] were really escaping quarantine and had only guessed at the possibility that it had happened. It's pretty easy to agree with Yoder that she's endangered them all by not admitting to it sooner. [[spoiler: The Reveal at she likely cares more for the dinos than the humans only slightly mitigates it.]]

* GeniusBonus: Gerry mentions to Yoder that reviving the ''Herrerasaurus'' enabled the scientists to firmly classify it as an early theropod. This is an actual debate among palaeontologists, as that species lived early on when dinosaurs were evolving as a separate group.

* MisaimedFandom: Some gamers who dislike the game ignore the fact that the entire point of the game was supposed to recreate the atmosphere of the movie. They mostly complain about it not being a shooter, despite TelltaleGames's insistence to avoid making that kind of game.
