Fun to Play as Marines

Played the demo with a friend we both where marines, so we teamed up.
It's was so scary when we got attacked or just moved course the sensor goes off.

Yeah, playing as a Marine solo is pretty intense but it's a lot more fun with a squad mate at your side.

I'm just going to say I hate you for teaming up as two marines :P (just jokin')
 
But yeah, the marines can be a very intense experience when your sensor is going off and you're sitting there looking all over the walls and ceilings and you're just thinking "holyshitholyshitholyshitholyshit".  It's something I've truly never experienced in online multiplayer.

The demo really should have been TDM. Predators, I think, have the most 'true' experience from the demo, but marines and aliens both are so obviously team-based that I'm mystified as to why they did the DM demo. And yes, Marines are great fun. Just remember to block.

It is quite impressive how they've made a multiplayer game scary and incredibly tense

Yep, it's a very unique experience.  Most games that try to be atmospheric and "spooky" aren't even as good as the multiplayer's atmosphere as a marine.  It really gets my adrenaline pumping.

I got my ass whooped as a marine.  Only got one kill, but the constant fear of something popping up was somewhat enjoyable.

The Predator is the easiest to stay alive with, especially when you have the laser and know how to use it.. hehe
I tried to stay where the laser is, and i tried to see if i could kill someone but no one came so i went down and right there was a alien...
Long story short, he killed me.

Rebellion did a good job of making each race feel unique and fun. Props to them.

Its pretty good alright, usually when i play with friends as predator, we all run around in a group and fuck up anyone not in our party. 
Yesterday i was part of a 2 Predator and 3 Human team, humans letting the predators know when the radar goes off.
