Do All These Aliens Patches Actually Make The Game Playable?
We're fairly certain that a patch can't totally fix the deeply flawed Aliens: Colonial Marines, but maybe it'll at least make the game playable.
Sega's new update for the critically panned shooter evidently fixes a host of issues. It also improves the visuals and texture resolution, repairs a few audio anomalies, increases the enemy and AI responsiveness, and enhances the enemy collision detection. Spawning issues have been addressed, you can't just wander outside a map anymore, and we even get an increased light radius from our lamp. Oh, and the flamethrower will no longer fire continuously on its own. That's good to know...I wish I had seen it happen, though.
Since the title's release, Gearbox and TimeGate have pointed fingers but that isn't really helping gamers. This patch, on the other hand, might actually make Aliens: Colonial Marines somewhat alluring as a bargain bin game. The only question is whether or not this patch will come to console versions of the game; for now, it only seems to be confirmed for PC. For the latest updates for the PS3 iteration, check here.
