Yeah, AP is just quite unbalanced in certain regards.
Namely, there's a few overpowered weapon skills in there (assault rifles) and some weapons are just WAY under-powered (pistols).
That Mark-and-Execute skill is way overpowered, as well.
AP also likes to use dice-rolls for hit & miss, as well - which should be a "No-no" in a game that has shooter-style controls; especially in games released after Mass Effect 2.
This shouldn't stop you from playing AP. AP has some great characters (such as Steven Heck); and the game is absolutely fantastic w/ making your choices matter to change the way the game actually plays out and its actual final outcome.
