So I already waxed historical about the slime platform. There's plenty else to talk about here. The random respawns are especially frustrating on TC, along with the sensor interference, which I don't think you mentioned, but adds plenty of extra tension and Aliens-like fear to what is an alien ship. Very cool.
Then there are the secrets, or at least hidden doors that you just don't know about the gift time through. One or two of them the pfhor will reveal for you, but the proper hidden one is also the most convenient to know about - back to the low frame rate past, the ambush after the teleporter, approached from that side, on TC, is one of the nastiest out there! The ability to sneak in the back of that area and sneak back to recharge is a big bonus!
Anyway, if you don't detest wasps by this point in the game, there's something wrong. And it gets worse. Not so much next level though, which PS has happily placed on my shoulders (so much for the mystery).
