AvP is pretty damn good as Marine, actually quite scary. Only played for half an hour.

Yeah, one thing I've learned is you absolutely can't take Alucard's opinion about any FPS seriously. As soon as he starts typing about them, it's like a cat is walking on his keyboard, resulting in nothing anybody would agree with.

It is not cool to talk down on other fellow members like that especially when they are there and can see it. If you have problems with someone than say it to his face, he is right there. Behaving like that makes you sound really lame to readers.


Don't take that the wrong way I am just giving you an advice. You probably don't mean it or realize it.

Pretty sure East isn't being nasty or anything.

But yeah, I agreed with him about the multiplayer since I played the demo when it became available. Not terrible, but not that good, definitely not worth anything near full price. Single-player however is fantastic, atmosphere is great and you don't know when the Aliens are going to pop out. Having a blast with it so far. Tried playing as Alien too. Default controls are retarded, and the game doesn't change the tutorials for customised controls (I use shift for Alien to run across walls, game kept popping up Middle mouse button). Loving it so far.

Its only good if you play the marines, and even then not really special good. The aliens have been butchered and raped compared to the brilliant control they had in the first two games. Ruined and destroyed. And I wont bother with the predator. Might as well just play something in god mode.

And its not my fault most fps games are generic and average. Considering my long past of pc games and most people on here console background, I would sort of be the EXPERT on fps games. I wonder how many of you mocked pcs a while ago because they were nothing but fps games. Go on. Open your mouths please. Then show me your halo collection while you're at it.

I've never said that, but if you want to see my Halo collection, you can!

Marines are amazing, really disorintating how quick the AI Aliens are and how they swarm above you and around you. I'd put the Marine campaign well above most standard shooters. Alien movement is just not as fluid is the problem really. Climbing a wall should be instant, not a big pause as the Alien starts to climb, and the jump button should be seperate to the 'cling onto a wall' button so you don't just get fired across the room to another wall.

Was worth the sale price though.

poker night probably isn't selling even at 5 bucks. but I bought it at 3. I get that in change at the end of the month, I always pick up coins if I see them even pennies, they go toward my impulse buys.

valve better do some things with their own games and not "ruse" people to buy bad games.

I made a pun!
