Steam now offers the Aliens vs. Predator multiplayer demo, a day earlier than announced, perhaps because of some Steam downtime scheduled for tomorrow. On a related note, here's a new "Infestation Mode" Trailer from the game that shows off the multiplayer mode that results when you leave food laying around. Here's the embedded clip.

Aliens have too much HP although they don't move too fast per se.
Furthermore those who say that Marines are underpowered... I hate to break it to you.. but you suck. Marines aren't underpowered once you get the hang of it. Just don't hang out in the open, hug the walls and the melees wont be able to surprise you... often.
The only thing that can give the other classes an edge is the fact that Marines get stunned when they get a hit. This way they can't fire, move, whatever. They just get a knock-back every time until they die. Now THAT sucks.
The game also has an auto-lock on the melee-attacks which gives melee too much of an adventage. Once you're close enough to an enemy and start a melee attack, you'll hit him even if the enemy teleports to the other side of the map (if that was possible) before your hit fell. THIS, too, sucks.
Other than that.. well, I hate Multiplayer like this anyway but it's quite obvious that this game has a very good chance of being a great Singleplayer game!
I'm sure at this point there's some way to rip their head and spinal column from the body, but I was unable to figure it out.
The "E" Grab executes are random but I think your chance to rip their head+spines out is to Grab them from behind.
