Moral of the story: don't buy games without trying a demo first.
I hated the demo. Barely playable due to lag and poor optimization (it even had a bug that made your microphone always transmit when you were in the session lobby).
But then a friend of mine bought the game anyway, and it turned out the release version ran so much smoother than the half-assed demo, and I ended up buying it myself, and I don't regret it.

Then it wasn't really a 'demo'nstration of the final product. IE., a beta rather than an actual demo.
There isn't really any difference between a [open] beta and a demo these days.

Admittedly, I've barely touched the single-player mode, but I find the multiplayer to be a true gem. I've put a lot of hours into MW2 and BC2, and in comparison I definetly have more fun with AvP.
I admit that the race balance isn't perfect, but since they are so asymmetric it doesn't ruin the fun.

The biggest issue is the lack of population, partly due to fragmentation between dedicated/listen servers, ranked/unranked modes, etc. But most other good multiplayer PC games also have population issues.
