3.8GB Patch for Aliens: Colonial Marines improves graphics, gameplay, and adds an unremovable film grain filter. One enterprising forum user posted a side by side comparison video showing the differences pre- and post-patch.
I think people are forgetting its not just the graphics that were bad...
Polish a turd, it's still a turd. A few graphical improvements can't save this game.
I can't tell which is which, it's f-ugly.
the voice acting makes me want to vomit, awful..just awful
And it still looks terrible...pls go gearbox
Yeah, it's not just the graphics. You can polish this as much as you want and it still will be the biggest misleading letdown in the franchise and the second misleading letdown from Gearbox. The highly televised commercial of the marionette-Team America-looking hicks during the opening speaks worlds of the other issues within this game.
In one respect, it's admirable that Gearbox is trying to remedy this horror. However, in another, I feel it's too little too late. They should've gotten it right the first time around.
