12. Re: Giant Aliens: Colonial Marines Patch Mar 19, 2013, 01:18 Drayth
Let me put it this way: If you bought the game and never finished it, or uninstalled in disgust.. the patch actually makes some rather decent improvements to the game.

There is definitely an improvement to the AI, animations on the aliens *are* smoother, and the graphics are more detailed and sharp. It's not just textures.. from my brief play I noticed the grenade toss scene at the dropship now has some extra effects added. Looks better.

For those who don't already own it, Id say it's now worth picking up, but only on a good sale price.

edit-They introduced a non-toggling film grain (Makes it look grainy like they Aliens movie, but the ijits should have made it optional) Mod to turn off the film grain, and a good ini tweak on the first page for the stupid contrast setting they switched to...
