[Videogamer.com] Aliens: Colonial Marines: What the hell happened to Aliens: Colonial Marines? - Page 18

post #171 of 207
So if I could ask a question. This game was premiered on the E3 gaming convention as something it is not? Is that right and that the advertising was false? Well isn't that grounds for going to the bank and filing a fraud report? Or at the very least a complaint with the better business bureau? I was one of those that preordered the game and have not had the motivation to try this game yet. I mean is it really that bad? As bad as some people said Fear 3 was? Even though I kind of enjoyed Fear 3 the more I played it. So this is worse than that??

Thanks

Any acclaim that gearbox had from BL is now dead. They just did a failing job at one of the most beloved sci-fi franchises of all time.


Not that this excuses SEGA, they've been a poor publisher for years too.

so i decided to play thru single player 'cause I was bored today...i can say the ending is terrible. the gameplay isnt AS bad as I thought it would be initially...but like AngryJoe's review said, the A.I. is piss poor. my graphics card only ran at 45% usage or something, i think the game has a frame cap of 61 FPS cause thats all she would do...and theres really nothing in the way of "maxxxxxed out man!" in the graphics settings, its just AA or no AA really...blah

Think as long as you have the newest update the options are in the video settings. That's how I remembered how to enable all the DX11 options. Maxed out it looks pretty nice. Only played the Marine missions because it was all I was interested in, but those were fun and pretty scary.

You're talking about AVP2k10 We're all talking about Aliens Colonial Marines.

Let's hope someone finds a way to mod this game then maybe the PC community can improve it somehow i don't know. But this is the last merchandise i buy from Gearheads.

I haven't finished the single player anyhow.

I may return back to AVP3 cuz i can appreciate Tessellation and the aliens look damn real. I wish there was a way to port the Aliens from Gearhead's game into AVP 3. Cuz they actually look good. It just needs Tessellation biggrin.gif

Even if the community could make this game look 100 times better, no way would I support gearbox by buying their unfinished filth. On the topic of AVP...I know it caught some flack when it was released too but compared to this game AVP looks like GOTY material...lmao.

Did you know they have DX11 out? Some modder added it.

http://www.moddb.com/downloads?filter=t&kw=Search+...&type=def&game=11261

but judging from the pictures the default looks better. I don't know what precisely he did but the game looks tad bit brighter which is not good looking but i won't know until i try these but i don't think i'll use them until there is an patch rolled out for the game then i'd be happy to try out mods. I think i'll steer clear from it for now.

Check out this. Someone actually took the time to do comparison screens of A:CM vs AVP3.
