If you've already played the demo, you know things can get extremely dicey if you let the enemy surround you. Hence, it's often a good idea to step back and pick off as many as possible before getting up-close-and-personal. If you've got the sniper rifle equipped, this tactic can be immensely effective; check out Chris as he goes off on a few nasties, then takes cover and pops a few more with that long-range weapon. It's going to take a steady aim and fast reactions to be successful, but that's hardly a surprise. Becoming a sniper expert takes practice in any game, and remember, Sheva will help you out if you get hemmed in.
