This review was a year ago, so I'm giving it some leeway, mainly with the game mechanics. My issue is the "plot holes", such as the landings. The Degasi arrived to this crater because they detected the excessive minerals on the volcano, which probably has something to do with the Precursors, and the Aurora comes to the same land mass because they were searching for the Degasi. The Kharaa got out through a Sea Dragon attack, did you read any of the info in the lost river base? Enzyme 42 isn't specific to that Emperor, it is heavily implied that is the only emperor around. The enzyme the Peepers are carrying is weakened by the Emperor's age, which is why the planet is barely limping buy, and why there are still fish that have pustules, while others don't. That nullifies a lot of points you complained about, because nothing is cured, and the Precursors had the disease before they arrived. And as for you arriving on a planet that could cure it first, did you read the Doomsday device PDA? The planet was supposed to blow up if they failed, but it malfunctioned, and we can assume the others didn't. The whole thing about why isn't there a warning, there is. It's just indecipherable for a while, until your PDA can read their language. Even if there wasn't, the gun blows up ships entering to ensure no chance of the Kharaa getting off planet. Say the gun let someone land, and then it did the very slow turning and aiming thing as they tried to leave. The ship would leave before the gun could even get into position. Ignoring that, why go through the trouble of letting someone land on the planet with the disease that'll kill them anyway? They might as well just kill them ahead of time and spare themselves the later killing. The Degasi's base has obviously been destroyed, and there's no way the crushed base happened in 10 years without weather interference. Did you consider the storm they're talking about is a temporary weather event, like a hurricane that dissipated or moved elsewhere on the planet in the 10 years between the Degasi base and the game. Say I went to Florida and said any number of hurricanes there hadn't happened because there wasn't rain that year. The Degasi were going deeper to find the gun power, as they said. And they knew they were infected. As for getting rid of the Precursors, that would just be removing a perfectly fine plot point because some people won't read the PDA, and filling the gaps with an even more nonsensical story. The part about not getting anything from Precursors is meant to show how your character can barely interact with their tech, because they're so much more advanced. And with your rocket building things, those would just be more scavenger hunts that you need to do, but with you needing to give up resources as well. The entire rocket building thing is meant to be your victory lap, going around and getting the last resources after you've saved the planet, and letting you say goodbye. Most of your plot holes were resolved by reading the PDA and having some critical thinking, instead of seeking out holes to poke.
