There's a good thread over at the Steam forums about useful console commands, including a way to play in firstperson mode.

Quote:
firstperson
asw_hide_marine 1
asw_controls 0

First one enables firstperson mode, second one hides your marine so you can see, third one changes the camera controls to be more FPS like.

man, I cant wait for more campaigns.
IŽd wager one of the first real mods will re-enable 8 player coop as the original mod, could have used that yesterday where we ended up having to run 2 games with 7 people wanting to play.

Saw that there are console commands to enable a skill up system more like the old mod, where you put points in the individual stats for your marine, guess they decided to take that out of the game design at some point.

I am really enjoying this game. For a free game its just the ticket for a bit of top down shooter action.
