Alien Swarm is an exciting mod, whereas it changes the style from First Person Shooter, to a hybrid of Real Time Strategy and 3rd Person shooter.

They're both good. The Steam one is a separate game, almost like a sequel of sorts. If you have UT2004 the mod is worth checking out, it has its own maps and stuff.

I agree this as one of the best UT2004 mods ever. This mod is way better than Valve's version of Alien Swarm.

Should just have to put the entire folder named 'Alien Swarm' into the UT2004 folder and it should work fine from there.
