This is truly a bizarre thing, but the early footage of recently released Aliens: Colonial Marines looked (much) better than the state of the final game.
Matt Lees and Steve Burns over at VideoGamer have put together a tremendous video showcasing the differences, and we think you’ll be pretty shocked. Some of the changes to the textures alone are beyond baffling, and the lighting effects are also strangely different. The question Matt and Steve pose is simple: What the hell happened to this game? Whilst the video doesn’t answer that question, it does make for a great watch.
So watch it you must! Then let us know what you think. Have you played Colonial Marines yet?
Aliens: Colonial Marines is available now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC. A Wii U version will be released at later date.
