Aliens vs Predator Demo on Steam as of Feb 03
I am loading it right now. I will update this thread with initial thoughts and review after some play through.

I am liking it. :D :thumb:
Only played as alien and marine though. I am not too interested in the pred and am not a great alien but I kick ass as marine using the rifle you spawn with. :D
Kick even more ass when spamming with the smart gun(is that still what it is called?) but that takes some of the fun out of it.
Pulse rifle ftw!

Looking forward to dedi servers and coop/survival mode!

However, I am hoping the final version gets a timedemo mode or the like.

I pre-ordered my copy from GameStop weeks ago they still don't have it in :( I'm hoping tomorrow they will finally have it in, I'm itching to play it!

Totally forgot I had this!

Checking it out now.

Gamespot gave it a 5.5, but user reviews have it at 8.0 Good ol' gamespot. They probably didn't give them any money to give a good score so they just rated it low.

Graphics are horrendous though...

Graphics are mediocre.

On my 8800gt with my q9550 I had massive stuttering.

Mouse default sensitivity I felt like trudging through molasses.

That was the first 10 minutes.

I never had an issue with the graphics at 1680x1050 on my Radeon 3850 256MB. I was too busy actually playing to sit on my ass gawking at the scenery.
And I turned my mouse sensitivity way up in the game's settings. It was always pretty sloppy for the first few seconds or so but after that it seemed ok.
The Marine is supposed to be super slow; this is not UT. The alien can be incredibly fast. I have not tried the pred yet though.

Gamestop better have the game in tomorrow or I will throw dead monkeys at their store!
