To keep this organized, here are some of the things that I don't get about this storyline. Keep in mind, if you have yet to finish the game, this WILL be a spoiler to you:
1. In order for Kerrigan to become a primal, she is told she has to be full of hatred, etc. It makes it sound as if she needs to be extremely malevolent and dark to survive the transformation. However, after she transforms, she is no less compassionate than before she transformed. At multiple points, she goes out of her way to ensure human's survive as she seeks her revenge on Mengsk. It just seems to me that her personality after the transformation is completely contradictory to what she was told it would do to her. That ties into the 2nd point...
2. In the end after killing Mengsk, she talks about losing her humanity. However, just before you started the final mission, while talking to Valerian, she agrees to go out of her way to ensure no civilians are harmed. How is that not an act of altruism? In what way has she lost her humanity? She still cares, loves Jim still, is more powerful than ever, so what has been lost? Her words just don't match up with the drama and compassion that she displays?
3. The Xel'Naga artifact affects her completely differently now than it did in the first one. How is it that the artifact suddenly changed how it affects her? No explanation, it's just now instead of letting off a wide-ranged blast like it did in the first SCII, it shoots out electric jolts at Kerrigan. Makes no sense.
4. Why did Zeratul let Kerrigan pound the sh*t out of him? He shows up to give her a message, and he just lets her pound him into the ground until he finally feels like showing her the vision. I get that he didn't want to kill her, but why not say something right from the start, or in some way try to defend yourself?
5. Dakara collects essences and seems to continually try to become more and more powerful. However, the guy basically looks like a crippled zerg, with one arm missing, replaced by a smaller stubby arm. For someone with his agenda and his accomplishments, why does he look like a deformed and crippled zerg? Why not grow back that arm to its full size?
6. Why does Kerrigan have to spend so much time regaining specific types of zerg? The only thing they lost was her, but suddenly now they have to go through a bunch of trouble just to make many of the same zerg she used to. It seemed ridiculous to me that the zerg started out so weak, and took most of the game to finally regain many units that she had well before SCII in the original SC.
Anyway, this storyline just seemed like it was very poorly thought out to me. It is riddled with contradictions. It is also extremely anti-climactic. The cut-scenes were all pretty shoddy, except for the one of her vs the shape-shifter. Other than that, nothing impressive. It would have been nice to see something of Amon in this one, especially considering we got a taste of him in the first SCII. When all that happened was "confront Mengsk, Mengsk tries to kill her (big surprise), she wins, kills him," I was like are you f*cking kidding me?! This is what I spent hours on end to see?!!!
I just really hope the final expansion makes more sense of things, because this one was a huge disappointment to me. It just seems like they aren't putting the thought into it like they did in the first SC.
