As to having all the cool augmentations and stuff, although that collective consciousness part is creepy. The protagonist of this game gets the best of both worlds. He has the physical capabilities of a Strogg, yet is still capable of individual thought. What's not to like?

That part would suck. I'm playing through the game a second time and I saw that again just a few minutes ago.

What about the whole, you know... physically more technology than flesh thingy. You know, imagine if you had to go to the toilet. That armor/plating would start smelling pretty bad eventually! ;)

Since I don't recall seeing a single bathroom on Stroggos, I can only assume they found a way to circumvent that problem.

imagin being a strogg and trying to pick up chicks, haha. when they show kane in the cut scenes he is really ugly (as a strogg). maybe he could get a strogg chick, but that would just be creepy. i wouldn't want to be a strogg.

Actually one of the other soldiers comments on it, saying something like: "Damn, Kane. When this war is over, you're going to have one hell of a time finding a woman to start a family with."

I'm not convinced though. He's not as hideously deformed as some Strogg, and cybernetic enhancements might prove useful for things other than combat, if you get my meaning. If he also has a winning personality, that would go a long way too. One major caveat though is that he may encounter an overwhelming prejudice because of his appearance. Judging by the reactions of some the other soldiers on the Hannibal after Kane's transformation, and because of the Strogg invasion of Earth, I get the feeling he wouldn't exactly be welcomed with open arms upon his return.

Indeed, first time on the hannibal they were surprised that they saw him and he was loved as some sort of hero BUT when he was half transformed they hated him, some guys. Also when you are a strogg, try to walk at sledge or rhodes. They walk slightly away from you. But if you are a strogg, you eyesight is better and you respond faster. But you are ugly. But what are those half humans that are hanging at walls but with no leggs, arms and parts of there heads missing..

Hmmm...I never noticed that. It's probably because their first instinct tells them they should shoot you or run away. I suppose a part of them always suspects you will suddenly turn your weapons on them and become fully Strogg. If even fellow soldiers are unnerved by Kane's appearance, imagine how civilians would react.

But what are those half humans that are hanging at walls but with no leggs, arms and parts of there heads missing..

They are just the particularly unfortunate ones. There is nothing redeeming about their fate.

But you have those in the middle of the game when you are strogg, those para strogg you can say that give orders.. Normally you will become one of those. But those other ones of the beginning in the game, those strogg that always shouts when they attack. Are those humans too or pure strogg?
