There’s no two ways around this fact: Aliens Colonial Marines is an absolute stinker. A massive lie on a disc, the game has been getting less than favourable reviews, thanks to it’s ugly textures, broken AI and numerous glitches. In all honesty, these should have been the components that Gearbox should have fixed before launch in the five year window that they had to work on the game. Instead, it’s up to PC modders to do their job for them.
Thanks to some passionate fans, Aliens: CM
Punk is now actually a tad bit more playable. Modders have begun work on the PC version of the game, bringing the visuals up to the quality that they were promised by Gearbox according to CVG. It’s purely aesthetical updates right now, but it won’t be long before the modders get to work on the AI at this rate.
You can check it out for yourself right now on the Steam forums if you reckon you have the skill to make a game that you paid several hundred Rands for, look better. I’m kind of glad that I cancelled my preorder on this game. By the sounds of things, and the fact that Geoff burnt all his clothes and is rocking away in a cold shower, it looks like I missed several hundred rounds of pure awful gameplay and visuals.
Why, it’s as if these developers have no scruples whatsoever these days! Tsk.
