It is playable in first-person mode via a few entries in the console.

Code:
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.

To enable the console, go to Options > Keyboard > Enable developer console. Then hit the ` key on the keyboard. Then enter each of the above commands to set first-person mode on.
