So...he found out that dipping a turd in 24k gold doesn't change the fact that it's still a turd?

I know right? It almost looks as good as what we were promised in the first place. Almost.

Too bad the game still sucks donkey d***. Gearbox is a filthy virus.......GearPox? O.o

Nah, it still looks far worse. All that did is change some settings anyone can do.

In no way did it bring back the atmosphere, textures, lighting, of the original demo. Nor did it add in the gameplay elements or in world 'items' that were taken out.

I'd say it's 5-10 percent better, still 90 percent short, graphically wise, and 100 percent short of the missing gameplay and items.

Broken AI, Story is illogical garbge. It's running in circles and shoot aliens, lack of proper animations. The maps are uther rubbish. Sorry envoirement artist and level designers, but did you play your maps once? There's no tatic. It's just "find the best spot to sit on" and stay there and shooting the aliens coming from two directions. Forget vents, they're placed almost randomly without strategic purpose. No effort has been put into this game at all. Do not buy it, especially not for the ridiculously high price on steam. this game would be somewhat reasonable at 10 dollars, but even then, do not buy it.

I created the video, and I am of the opinion the game is a complete letdown also, I suppose the one thing you can hope for is that modders will save it to some extent, but the reality is nothing will fix how terrible this game is from top to bottom.

Either way I hope you guys enjoyed the video somewhat as I think with the mods its a glimpse as to what this game could have been with a little bit of effort.
