The lack of advanced weapons even make sense to me, some people just see humans get slaughtered by aliens and are apparently a little offended and think 'hey, we can do better than this!'. Maybe they had them, but lacked the ability to deploy them onto other planets. When they attacked Klendathu they underestimated the Bugs and probably saw no need, the soldiers were seen as expandable anyway, and on planet P they had to use infantry to draw out and find the Brain bug. Tanks would also be pretty useless against arachnids because they can slice through steel and easily outmaneuver them, you want a huge bullet swarm rather than single shots against single targets (which is why they made the marauders). When the technology gets too good you get situations like the Roughnecks Chronicles where 1 trooper is the equivalent of 100 bugs.

The reason a large number of nerds are booty bothered about the first movie was because it was Paul Verhoeven basically shitting directly on the source material...
It's a fun romp on it's own, but switching out the "man is a warrior" ideology for a satire of it's implied fascist regime is a bitter pill to swallow when the author was one of the Big Three of Science Fiction...
