    The patch makes a large improvement to graphic quality and game play.
    Talking a 3.5 GB patch here.
    Basically the size of a whole game.

    The DLC is a lot more fun than I anticipated and even the hater trolls on steam forums have to agree. It is worth getting. I spent all night, glued to the game..lol..
    Bug hun is tons of fun and the improvements are a noticeable improvement.
    Think Nazi Zombies but with Aliens. :)
    I am a happy bug hunter..

    So does it actually make the game worth paying over $30 for?

    I know all the reviews are from the original game release, but is it worth it since the patch?

    Idk.. I thought the game was worth over 30 dollars at release.. People have their own opinions I guess. HD texture packs and fixes, that are over 3 gb in size, plus the bug hunt dlc..
    Wait til it goes on sale if you don't want to risk it. I can't tell you "Yes you will like it"
    All I know is I have 110 hours in this game, so I liked it at release.

    I never saw the E3 version, so I never got caught up in the "this isn't what they showed us" hype..
    110 hours = more than worthy imo..
    But people have their own opinions., Don't use mine as your own. XD

    Personally, those reviews were either playing consoles, or didn't play the game at all, or played with a different build than retail. So it's no as bad as reviewed, at all. The only bug both Mailman and I experienced on our play through was the "teleport at odd times" one.


    And yes, this content does definitely add a lot, but it's multi-player content only. I don't think we'll get ANY SP DLC.
