Aliens vs. Predator Marine Gameplay Trailer
Note to self: If I ever get separated from my Colonial Marine detachment, DO NOT go to the virtual strip club for entertainment while there is a massive Alien infestation going on!

    First off let me start off by stating in my opinion, you are not making any sense if you rate this game negatively after only playing one match or even the demo.

    If I remember correctly, which I do because I was a hardcore AVP gamer fan for many years, this game has much better graphics and runs ALOT smoother than the original PC version. Now the most negative comments I am hearing I can disprove now because you guys aren't making any sense.

    "This isn't like Call of duty!"
    --No it isn't, AVP is its own unique game! It has always been like this since 10+ years ago and if you didn't play it back then, then stop criticizing how the game plays now, in fact it runs better than the original! Not every game has to be about running around shooting terrorists with guns, AVP requires much more skill and completely different strategies as different classes. Sure marines use guns but require a lot of caution and stock piling of weapons (in Deathmatch). Predators require stealth and the high ground over your opponents, and Aliens involve mastering the wall crawl and using their superior speed to undermine your enemy. Not only will there be Deathmatch, which I believe was a poor game type choice to represent the game because its not nearly as fun as Team DM, there will be infection and a lot of other really fun objective based and large team based game types!

    "This is just a movie game"
    --False..and true. Is this game based off of the mediocre AVP movies? No. The original game brought the idea of Aliens, Predator, and Humans fighting amongst each other, but yes this game got its character ideas off of the movies Aliens and the movie Predator. This makes it not really a movie game though because it is not based off of any story line brought on by the recent movies but from the original game.

    "I can't see anything!"
    --...turn up the brightness setting on video options...or get you're eyes checked...

    "One class is better than the rest!"
    --I have heard from multiple people that either Predators or Aliens or even marines are more superior than the rest of the class choices. Not true. What IS true is that you as the player will be better at playing as (or enjoy playing as the most) one of the three species more than the others, and when you find what species your best with you need to find the weaknesses of the other characters, for example Aliens are the bulkiest and easiest targets to hit, predators are exposed at close range, and marines are the easiest to pick off one by one.

    "Everyone just assassinates all the time"
    --Those who just started playing (everyone) finds that assassinations are the easiest because they only require one button to perform, what they do not realize is that they are open for attack because of the length of time it takes to assassinate. Most of the time you'll find three-way or more assassinations. However, when playing as teams I find assassinations rare because you have each others backs (coordinated teams on demo). Now as this game progresses more and more players are using it less because as they play longer they realize (AND YOU SHOULD TOO) that assassinations should only be used on occasion, I find personally that I will used a heavy attack or weapon on a person from behind more than an instant kill because it will allow me to retaliate to any other enemies nearby to allow me to get a double or even a triple kill. Assassination wasn't meant to be you're main attack.

    "I don't need another multiplayer game, I will judge this game based off its story mode"
    --AVP was popular BECAUSE of its multiplayer! If your waiting to judge this game by its story then you are not thinking clearly. This game gained all of its popularity based off its amazing multiplayer experience, in my opinion it has a much better experience then Call of Duty, MAG, Halo 3, etc. The amount of character choices, game types, closed and open world maps this game has are to die for let alone there will be DLC for this game. Quit wasting your time leveling up on COD, you'll never be the best and once you earn all the guns, who cares? It's been the same experience for the last 10 years put the frickin' game down and try this game out! ITS DIFFERENT AND FUN trust me.

    "It's not worth the $65"
    --RENT it before you make that assumption. What made COD, Halo ODST worth it this year? The exact same reasons why this game will be great as well! That's why! I wanna buy it obviously; can't afford it yet because of ME2 however, I am still going to rent it when it comes out because I wanna gives this game a shot! If the demo is not enough to encourage you to buy this game then you have to try out the full version people even if it means going over your friends house to try it out. Deathmatch cannot represent what this game will be, the real experience comes from team work against your foes and the horrific events that take place in objective based game types.

    I will defend this game to the death because it is one of my most favorite games but I will eat all my words if this games turns out to be awful I promise, just promise me one thing, that you will give this game a shot. I'll see ya on Xbox live. PS3..i'm sorry but no one is playing you right now.

    From the looks of it there won't be any aiming down the sights... a little disappointing, but still would love to play this game and see how they handled the franchise.

    I loved the MP demo, such a change of pace from MW2. The single player campaign's look like they will be awesome. Also Infestation mode will be great, cannot wait to pick my copy up.

    I just played the multiplayer demo earlier and it was awful. Its just a cheap way of scaring everyone by turning the lights off.

    The flares only stay lit for 7 seconds! (yeah, I counted) Those flares the police put out by street accidents last for over 15 minutes. Ok, so these flares are smaller and more portable. But a little flare that size using today's technology would easily last 60 seconds.

    I could rock to that music but I think whoevers playing is a little too pumped cuz his/her aim is off. I'm actually hoping that most people only play the single player experience so that the online community is less congested with upstart 13 year olds of mind/body. If you don't like constantly having to use strategy & tactics in a shooter then this is definitely not your game. Most other shooters often allow you to gain kills by chance of simply squeezing the trigger. In this game, it can instantly get you killed no matter how many times you re-spawn. One of the scariest multiplayer game matches of old was if an ALIEN player gained enough kills to turn into a Queen. This is not like VIP or even infestation mode as it took a lot of effort for a player to hack, slash & crawl to turn into a Queen. Once a Queen your a bad ass that requires a lot to take down but it can become a challenge onto itself to hid once your that huge. Or imagine a lone Predator gettin props for killing a whole group of Marines over & over again. It takes great skill. For people that hate working in teams & like being solo war machines, this game is not for you. As a Marine in Multiplayer it is complete folly to not work with your squad mates. If you play against inexperienced players it wont matter but otherwise you will pay dearly. By the way, I hear their working on a ALIEN movie "Prequel" I personally think its a dead movie franchise. The only one that I truely enjoyed that didn't suck was the second one & the first Predator film. Once everyone has seen these beasts over & over again in cinema they become numb & un-amused/afraid.

    I'd forgotten how much fun I had with this franchise in the old days until I played the MP demo yesterday. It's too bad the movies were terrible, the PC games were awesome, both for single player and multiplayer. The new iteration is pretty damn fun so far. The look on the Predator's face when I got him locked for a head bite, priceless.

    That was an awesome trailer, but I am still not convinced about this game. Rebellion has made some truly awful games, but at the same time, this trailer looks as if they have gotten their act together. Maybe it was a different group of Devs who made this game compared to the the other teams that made Rogue Warrior and Shellshock 2 (both abysmal games).

    If only they had given me a single player Demo, I would have pre-ordered the game. However, since they decided to only give us a Multiplayer Demo (which I could not care less about) I am forced to rent it or buy it used.

    Personally, I think it was one of the biggest boneheaded moves they could have done when they released a Multiplayer only demo. Do they not realize that Modern Warfare 2 is still VERY fresh and we are not going to leave MW2 for Aliens vs. Predator Multiplayer??? It is like someone asking me to put down an awesome Steak and have some Processed Beef instead. Not to mention Bad Company 2 is coming out soon, and that multiplayer is going to be awesome. So, you would think that they would have known that the only way to win us over was to show us the single player in their game is awesome and worthy of our attention, since they are not going to drag us away from MW2 for their online component.

    I'm really pumped for this game, It's unique in a way. The Multiplayer was eh. Classes seemed balanced, but I would be mostly playing it for the single player campaign experience.

    @ Jeffrey Kanjanapangka

    UNSC is from Halo...these are Colonial Marines (which i believe is a section of the USMC in this franchise, if not, feel free to correct me). Just letting you know.

    But on topic, this vid is nice! Haven't been able to play the demo yet, but i will, game looks awesome! and I'll definitely be staying away from the strip clubs from now on....well...maybe >.>
