Aliens vs. Predator Demo Direct-Feed Gameplay
Hunter. Survivor. Prey. Yeah, it's all very interchangeable in Sega's Aliens vs. Predator Demo!

    I played a couple games (ON THE PS3, I think its just no one is playing, everyone is on the much better BFBC2 demo).

    The game is bad imo. Might be a fun "what the heck" kind of rent. But its not a serious game you would want to buy.

    I like playing a marine the most, but Alien was super fun, and Predator can demolish people when he has all of his weapons. I was really hoping for a Team Death Match though. For all the people playing as Aliens though, remember to stay on the ceilings, no one ever looks up, or at least no one ever looked up at me.

    As a long time fan of the first two AvP games on the PC I've been anticipating this games release for a long while now. Against my better judgment I've opted to try out the demo on the PS3 over PC and thus far I have to admit I'm a bit undecided.

    I've only had a few matches so far and only managed to experience the Marine, my least favorite of the three races, but it seems to capture the right mood. The only way to succeed is to monitor your radar. If you're not hearing a bleep then whip the camera around until you do and be sure to watch the ceiling because the Aliens have a nasty habit of impaling you from behind. Having an Alien pull that on you seems almost embarrassingly overpowered at first but once you get used to the Melee -> Shotgun combo though the combat flows a bit better but I must admit after seeing what a Xenomorph can do it makes me wish the matchmaking went by faster.

    The downside to this demo though has less to do with the overall feeling of the Marine and more the control set-up. As SkinnyJr pointed out the R2 button isn't the most comfortable for Primary Fire. Having not experienced the other races I can't offer an opinion on them but curious to know if Predators and particularly Aliens experience the same kind of issues.

    My question to anyone who has tried the Steam download is if they are having any trouble finding games. Right now that's my biggest gripe with the demo that there just doesn't seem to be enough games going on which I hope is more to do with how recently it came out and not a reflection of general interest in the title.

    Overall it has left me wanting more...even if my controller auto-shuts off more often than a match opens

    Ive played several match's and it is quite fun. I found the predator the most fun to play with. Going into stealth, sneaking around, heat and alien vision, and of course the duel arm blades. It is just a blast. Alien is almost right up there. The speed and running up any surface is confusing at first but great once you get it down. Compared to the Alien and Predator, the soldier was not as interesting. Its OK but id rather play as the other two. So far this game is looking great and is looking like a buy for me.

    Haven't played the demo yet but from the video it looks like the "press x to get a one hit kill" is frustratingly inconsistent. The Marine at 1:34 should have gotten destroyed but instead the button goofed up and he fell into the hole where he ended up killing two aliens. That could get real annoying real fast.

    I love it. Very fun. The Marine is very suspenseful and it had me constantly whipping around checking every angle. Alien is the most fun so far. A bit of a learning curve but once you perfect the hit and run you are good to go. Predator is the hardest to pick up, and I've only had one chance at him. It will take some time to perfect him. I feel he isn't very useful in the map provided. he is to caged in, which works for Alien, but Predator needs more open space.

    They have sold me on it though. I love the multiplayer. No longer do I have to attempt to make a barely passable Predator game type in Halo 3.

    I only managed to play one game. The PS3 matchmaking isn't very good. I played as the Alien and it was pretty fun. I want to try the Alien again at some point. Single-player is gonna be a lot of fun. can't wait for this game to be released.

    this demo did exactly what it was meant to do, left me wanting MORE!. and helped me decide to buy it on PC...the console graphics are a little dodgey.

    I thought the classes were all very well balnced and each just took some time getting used to the controlls.

    I'm eagerly awaiting the other online modes as well as the campaign.

    i thought it was a ton of ton of fun the marines are a lot better then i excpected the aliens have have awesome finsh moves and the predator is just plan awesome,i'm shocked its this could becaues rebellion studios put out crap games last year shell shock blood trails and the warrior so this is like a giant leap forword for them cant wait to try the single player when it comes out.

    It needs crouching.

    Flamethrower is too weak.

    Smartgun sounds funny, needs the original sound from the movie.

    I have both systems but I've only downloaded the Xbox demo. I don't like the attack buttons being on the bumpers! I like my attack buttons on those sweet xbox triggers. You couldn't switch the attacks to the triggers either, in the 3 configurations they included with the demo. I may have to try the PS3 version and wait for reviews.

    its funner playing the alien but he's more disorienting. plus I would've preferred TDM in the demo than a FFA

    I love it. Im surprised at the marines strength- in fact, im best as a marine. I downloaded the demo for both systems. The PS3's primary fire button is R2. Thats an awful trigger. I had to switch my preorder to the 360. Devs need to understand that the controllers are as different as the systems. They are entirely different animals and should be treated as such
