Maybe I should have waited until tomorrow when more will have downloaded it because match making is taking forever.

Yeah, it's not just you. I gave up on it.
Steam forums show a lot of people are having the problem.

The final game is going to have dedicated servers, apparently. Bit weird they would put in that warning about DX9, but not dedicated servers, particularly given matchmaking is borked.

I've just been playing this demo... I was not impressed.

The flamethrower can't actually set anything on fire. WTF? It would have been super useful for lighting up cloaked predators. You can't do that. Nor can you turn aliens into frenzied living torches. It seems to set scenery on fire a little bit, but that's all. I also couldn't work out what the point of its alt fire mod was.

The pulse rifle is ok, I suppose...

The smartgun is what really pissed me off. it sounds wrong. It fires wrong. It just plain IS wrong! It's meant to fire in bursts, and have a rather low pitched sound. This game has a gun that looks roughly like a smartgun but just isn't one, as it fires in full auto and has a weird high pitched sound. It's completely wrecked any sense of authentic Aliens experience that the game could have had.

It's also dissapointing that there's no alien dismemberment in multiplayer. Considering that it was not only possible, but awesome, in single player... I really don't see the reason why it's not in multiplayer.

Hell, Deus Ex 1 has it in singleplayer AND multiplayer!

Also, I've noticed there's a distinct lack of consistency in the various demo movies of the game. In the 2009 predator demo, you could cut limbs off aliens and have them keep crawling towards you.

In the marine demo (in the stripclub), none of the aliens seemed to lose limbs. In fact they basically just fell over and died. LAME.

I can't really work out what the final game is going to include. The multiplayer demo was offputting. And why on earth isn't there a single player playable demo? It was badly needed.

I hope Aliens: Colonial Marines is better than this.
