Quick Look: Aliens vs. Predator Multiplayer Demo
" Is there even any point in playing a marine in this game, seems to be vastly underpowered lol. "yeah, Ryan has played FPS more than most, and he only did middle of the pack as the marine, but then he switches to a CRAZY-motion sickness-odd controlling alien, and its so over powered he does pretty darn good his very first time. I mean he even had to look up what the controls actually were.... why would you ever be marine? (although the all marines vs predator mode sounds sick!)
" Drew is a man of few, but high quality, words. "As Robert Ashley would say, he's got an economy with words. Just like any good silent protagonist, when they speak up everybody shuts up, because they know that dude's about to say something worth hearing.
Well, I've actually played the demo, and the one match I played as a Marine, I took first by a long shot. You've gotta keep your head on a swivel and utilize his block and melee attack more than you'd probably want to. Not to mention his clip-size on his default gun allows for some serious bullet spam.
I've been playing the demo a lot today, and have had a lot of fun with it. Obviously it's hard to say anything about balance so far since everyone are still garbage at the game, but it seems pretty decent. I've won a few rounds with each race, but I feel the most comfortable with marine due to the motion sensor and ranged weapons - though I have the most fun with alien.
