Rated 10 out of 10 by zombiesgonnagetyou best horror game for pc or 360 ever
For everyone out there thinking about getting this game stop thinking and just buy it ! this is deffinately one of the best games i have ever played for pc i'm a huge fan of the valve games and the stuff they put out on a daily basis i play atleast 5 hrs of their stuff including counter strike , team fortress 2 and tons of others. However, in this gamers opinion this one blows them all out of water to the point where i need to tell my cs buddies i wont be on for awhile because of the game. the graphics are deffinately an upgrade the story line behind it is the classic zombie apocolypse that we all love sound is nuts really gets you into the game controls are much like other valve games so easy to get used. personally though the best part of the game is deffinately the zombies one they aren't all the same two they pop up out of no where ! you really gotta watch you and your teams back in this game or your done for. like i said don't think don't do anything other than buy it
Rated 10 out of 10 by rovaira Never ending excitement
From the start of this game it grabs you and doesn't stop. You can play online with three other players and you have to help each other out to succeed. There is constant action and you never know where the zombies are going to attack you from. You need to rely on teammates who help you out because they need you as well. The game is definitely challenging, my understanding is it adapts according to how well you play. I haven't felt frustrated or bored to the slightest degree. The graphics are good, but probably a little bit behind the current games. They are enough to keep you going though, especially with the millions of zombies everywhere. Sounds are nice, and enough. I can't say they blow me away, but they complement the game well. I have never been a hardcore shooter game person, but this game definitely is worth buying. I'm not as good as the other players, but it doesn't matter as this game is awesome. You will definitely be pleasantly surprised playing this game!
Rated 8 out of 10 by AverageToaster A game from 2 years ago
A Zombie Apocalypse with 4 player co-op what more can you ask for? Its a simple great idea the guys at valve put to work and it turned out nicely, Replacing the shambler-esque zombies with a 28 days later rage infected zombie but as the story says they are just infected people of a rare strain of the rabies virus. Challenge wise going with the rage zombies should of made the game a lot harder then it is, while some people may have a hard time on advanced, all my friends and I were ripping up expert without a problem. Graphics were on par with Half life 2 and while not bad they are meager for today's standards. Responsiveness, this game controls amazingly as good on the 360 as it does on the pc. Storyline, 4 different movies (yes movies) of 4 people trying to survive the end of the world. Sounds, sounds are what make this game push the scary, sounds change and react to the players and what's going on. Games like oblivion and halo say they do this but L4D really melds the experience together just like a movie.

After seeing the intro for this, I was boned out to play, so I got my demo/preorder and installed off steam. First time through I played single player and its pretty much just wave after wave of zombies, no story at all in the demo but I would imagine this will change with the full version (20 maps, we got 2 on the demo and I can finish it in around 15 mins). The graphics and gameplay don't seem like Valve had much to do with this game, it looks and feels dated. You pass through characters like they are not even there which I didn't like, feels like they rushed it. Weapons were same old that I saw and you can't order your members around at all, they just follow and shoot. You guys have it all wrong, this is by FAR not even close to game of the year or HL2 for that matter. You'll see the people complaining after launch of how disappointed they are at Valve. I really was expected a killer game like HL2, this is not it. Give me Episode 3!

The demo has spoken loud and clear on the game's merits meeting the expectations set by every preview that has been printed or posted. Everything about the game's design is geared towards making it a survival co-op shooter, unlike anything that's really been seen before. While there are parts that are reminiscent of older games, the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts. Played as single-player, it really doesn't seem too special - but with 1, 2, or 3 buddies this game shines like no other. Every time you play comes out different, and it's remarkably fun seeing plans get destroyed by the horde of zombies. Some of my best memories of it already have come from harrowing defeats or last-ditch heroics with one survivor making it to the safe room. I was really concerned it couldn't live up to how good I wanted the game to be, and am more than pleased to confirm that it met, and in some ways exceeded, those high expectations.

So, I'm not much of a steam fan, but I thought I'd give the demo a try for this since I read it was supposed to be a great coop game. The first 10 min. of playing, I pre-ordered this game. It is so freakin fun, you can't imagine. If your a person who loves coop play, then by golly this game is just for YOU! The gun and such have that half-life and counter strike feel where it's not very big and what not, but the gameplay outdoes everything I've ever seen before. Most games if you look at the enemy they come attacking you. Here you can look at the zombie for 5 min. just staring at it and it WON'T attack you unless you attack it. I love how it forces coop play and how everything isn't the same if you die [dynamic spawning]. The storyline seems short from what i could see from the demo, but i'm sure they'll make up for it sooner or later.
Rated 9 out of 10 by schummoo go by yourself is a great idea
I got a lot a fun to discover left 4 dead. When you play versus there is not enough maps only 2. Hopefully they will put more next left 4 dead. I guess a lot of people got the game for Christmas because there is a lack of server. I try to connect to a server not to easy!!! Remnder guys for that game need to stick together to survive, i have to help out so many brave players who try to go by themself, hunter smoker catch and the are the first one to cry for help, when they get mad a the team because we didn't help him!!!!!!! To have fun just please stick together and communicate and we will survive. The bomb and the molotov cocktail are very useful when u use it right!!! Please make sure there no kids around when u are playing because i don't understand parent let their 10 years old kids playing that kind of game, i just don't get it!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by bl00dy.1 I love Valve.
Valve has done it again with the release of Left 4 Dead. For those of you thinking about Resident Evil or any other zombie game as a basis for L4D, throw those thoughts out the window. The zombies in L4D (or infected) act as spastic and crazily terrifying than any game I've seen. If anyone has watched the movies 28 Days Later or Weeks Later, the zombies behaviors resembles the zombies in this film. The controls are organic as would agree any Half-Life or Source Engine fan. The only thing is that there is no difference between characters, no added attributes, etc. and since the demo has been released there shows to be no storyline at all other than zombies have invaded the town you are in. Hopefully Valve will release an in-depth storyline (which they usually do) to accompany the awesome, scary, and fun-filled gameplay.
Rated 10 out of 10 by mailmanorange Great GAME MUST HAVE, BUY 2 or 3
This game is the for all zombie lovers. If you don't have a bomb shelter yet, get this game and you will build one in a couple of days if you even get the chance because you will be playing this game so much. There are some glitch's but I got the valve version and they keep sending updates so its much better know. The time of environment the developers put you in is crazy real. It is the perfect time of zombie scenario you would want to play in. The developers really know how to make a very "scary" game and make it fun. The "scary" I found in the game was the tanks. They get you heart raising and you just run for it and throw a moly. Verses is the get also get scary as the other team maybe really good and you need to come up with a stat to beat them. You really need to use team work in this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by headshot three simple words...OMG
left for dead is easily one of the best games ive ever played! like what another reviewer said "you have to work together to stay alive. teamwork isnt optional! i remember, i was playing online on a versus match and i was the humans. one of the players just walked off. two minutes later he's asking for some help when he was on the other side of the map! so i love that. also, some smaller things ive noticed in the game...when a hunter zombie pownces on you, it actually shows blood, organs, (that type of gore) actually being taken out of your open body. normal games wouldve just showed claws going through your body while you loose health. but left 4 dead has gone beyond that. far beyond that. also when you heal your-self, you actually see bandages being wrapped on you...also, zombies can start shredding a door apart with high detail and no framerate loss. the game can withstand a horde of 30-50 zombies with out framerate loss. another thing i should mention: the AI scripting in the zombies. they actually know whats goin on around them and respond to that. they know who to attack, who not to attack etc. in my expierience playing, it was easily the best FPS game ive ever played
