Marines need to be tactical, aliens are more sneaky and agressive

marines are better for new players, unless you are a rambo marine like me.

I like aliens a little more because harassing RTs during pub games is pathetically easy and guarantees wins more often than it should.

It's easier to rack up kills as a marine, but getting people to defend stuff is impossible so you end up doing awful rambo jobs of counter-harassing RTs/RT defense.

So, I'll say aliens because they require less overall teamwork in pub games.

I love Aliens there op :D
Aliens are more dynamic and... IDK friendlier.
Maybe it's because of all the overgrowth everywhere.

Marines are cold, metal, and industrious.

That's really a standpoint on the story, but gameplay-wise I preffer Aliens too.
The amount of things you can do in terms of upgrade and evolution is amazing.
There's a vast amount of combinations that are all unique in their own way.
Like a Skulk that can see through walls vs. a Skulk with phantom.
The Skulk chose seeing where the enemies are first over not being seen at all.
The Phantom Skulk would rather move quietly and grab the element of suprise.

With marines it's the same old:
Armor 3 > Weapon 3> Shotgun> Jetpack Grenade Launcher or Flamethrower, Exo-Suit.

Alien gameplay is much more rewarding as a player IMO, flying around with a jp shotty killing skulks without leap gets boring fast. But being a lerk and taking out 5 marines single handedly doesn't.

Aliens by far. When I'm playing as the Marines on most parts it feels like I'm playing "a normal FPS game" and the worst part is that nothing is really good. I mean the weapons, aiming, maps, etc. feel awkwardly mediocre. When I'm playing as the Kharaa NS2 shows it's uniqueness a lot better.
