Finally got to try this game a few days ago, tried the 360 demo, and I forced myself to finish the one round before quitting the game forever.
I was the marine and it sucked. You get one weapon. A rifle. No alternate firing options, no secondary weapon, no grenades, no flares. You can pick up other weapons but in this darkened environment all I wanted was a goddawn torch. Or a flamethrower.
The lighting in the game was terrible. The marine is supposed to have a flashlight but when you turn it on it doesn't create anything like you'd expect. A flare you can toss into the open would be a lot more useful than this stupid flashlight.
I think the point that really slammed the door on this game was when I'd get killed via a special move kill/death move whatever, you'd expect you turn towards them so you can see something...but you look off to the side and then you look down or some stupid shit... You're already holding me hostage while this happens the least you can do is let me see the enemy and what he's doing. With how much patience it took to "play" the game that was too much. Match ended, quit, goodbye.
It takes real talent to turn someone completely off your game just by playing one round of the MP game. I'm shocked the devs are so fucking bad at their job.

It felt a bit mushy to me as well no matter what species.
Unless Im not doing it right, they kinda fucked up the Aliens wall walking..it AVP2 it was seemless just holding down shift u could crawl from floor to wall. Here you have to press the 'transition' button..huh..it totally breaks up the mechanic and flow while you fumble to press the middle mouse button, which sometimes take 2 or 3 presses to get it to work right..grrrr

Well just tried the demo, saw it was multiplayer only quit... and it fucking blew up windows, BSD, reboot, minidump, PC made some horrid noises, the whole shabang, settings are all fucked up now... well that was fun, PC has been perfectly stable without any issues whatsoever since my last build. ALways nice to get a reminder why I gave up on PC games in the first place (well besides what I already own) guess its back to the console.
EDIT I guess I should be thankful I almost was ready to put some cash down, whew dodged a bullet... better put a sticky on my monitor "NO MORE PC GAMES!" just incase I forget again. Steams fualt damn Xmas sale got me all fired up again.

So if you get the "host has left" message doesn't that mean it's peer to peer? If you get that message, does the game even transition to a new host or does the game end?
I have vsynch off and the mouse controls still feel laggy. My riva tuner based fps display shows good fps so it's not my fps.

I kept attacking Aliens then suddenly they'd be behind me and Im screwed, wonder how they do that.
They do have too much HP too I was shooting one while he did his kill move on someone, he had no problem finishing them off then killing me whilst Im shootin then both. Maybe invulnerable doing finishing moves?
