just got this game from steam, pretty good game for a freebie
Its basically a Co-Op (4 players) version of the old "Alien Breed" series of games
but you level up you char to gain unlocks and has an achievement system
not a bad game at all for a free game.
Anybody else playing / got it?

Played around with it for a few hours here and there over the last week.
Gameplay itself is pretty entertaining for a while if the group stays together for a full campain-thingy.
Knowing the mission helps alot (i.e. when to bring a flame thrower or a wrench).
The match/game finding system is kinda bad though and you are bound to get disconnected from already full games alot.
It's easier to just host a game yourself I guess. At least it was for me.

Was worth the download for the free fun provided.

Should be interesting to see what additional maps come out or are created by fans.
