Yep, haven't gotten it online yet, just messed around to learn the basics. Then I got SC2. It'll be on my computer for a while, collecting dust, untouched by these little pads of warmth and hatred.

I couldnt get past the controls... just too hard to control and accidentally shooting teammates and cant see very far. Didn't feel like it had the strategy / brainpower I look for in games but granted I didnt play it for long. It's one of those games where i'm sure it has lots of depth but it's just not very clear how it's supposed to be played "properly", and whats so fun about it compared to other games. A bit like FF on public servers i guess :P Just didn't do it for me personally.

Its ok for a free game, but controls suck hard, and for me its more a casual to play for 30 min then good to be erased. Didnt found nothing special on it, just a arcade game.

I guess I don't understand how the controls can suck.

WASD to move, mouse 1 to fire?

Oh well, mapping in it is incredibly easy and fun.

Nah, completely different games.

Stumbled across Alien Breed Impact recently myself. Alien Swarm uses the Source engine while Alien Breed uses Unreal 3 engine? Something like that.

Plus, Alien Breed is more around single-player co-op with only two players.

The buy system is also different, swarm had an unlock system, this one has like some form of shop. Well, I remembered what I could from mind, sorry if any of the information is inaccurate to hell.
