Left 4 Dead
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
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!
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.
Its alright... NOT what I thought
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!
Survive or Destroy the Competition - 10/10 game
Left 4 Dead is a highly addictive co-op, first person shooter that forces you to rely on your teammates and them on you. It is a team-based FPS game. If you don’t like the “Survivors,” then you can play as the “Infected,” humans that have transformed into monsters. For example, in player vs. player mode, you will alternate between the “Survivors” and the “Infected.” You can play as the Tank, a monstrous, steroid-injected brute about 9 feet tall that quakes the ground beneath its feet as it runs. The “Survivors,” named Francis, Zoey, Louis, and Bill, will run from you, shoot at you, climb to higher ground to escape, but many times they will fail to stop you and one of which named will die. Because of the Tank’s power, it doesn’t spawn much. You will be selected to play it randomly or if you score enough points for the “Infected” team. The Hunter, Smoker, and Boomer are the “Infected” enemies that consistently spawn. The graphics are quite impressive at 1024 x 768; I have an Intel Pentium D CPU at 3.0 GHz, 2.0GB of Memory (RAM), a 256 MB NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GTX video card, Windows Vista Home Premium Edition, and I have no complaints at this resolution, except at times exceeding lag due to a poor server connection, or my computer freezing during game play – I mainly experience these problems on Versus mode rather than on the Campaign, I suppose due to hosting and server problems. Packs of zombies running at 15 mph towards you are what you’ll encounter in this game, whether you’re stationary or running away from them. They’ll never stop to try and kill you. They may be standing in one place, and then all of a sudden, they’ll charge you if you get to close or a Boomer either vomits or explodes on you. You really have been left for dead, so why not join them? Well, for one, you have your teammates to help you through the fight. Besides the voices of the in-game characters, your human teammates can either type a message to you or speak to you by microphone. So be encouraged. Left 4 Dead is different than Team Fortress 2 in that it has graphic content, “blood and gore,” “intense violence,” suitable for those 17+, without regard for a cartoonish atmosphere. I mean, really, Team Fortress 2 appears cartoonish. Above all, your FPS skills will be tested in Left 4 Dead because there is no “switch-off” of friendly fire. Meaning, if you have horrible aim you will likely infuriate your human teammates as your in-game character keeps shooting at theirs, lowering their health and at times incapacitating them. In other words, you must use caution where you shoot. The maps are amazing and the level design captivating. Urban cities. Subway train stations. Sewers. Hospitals. Forests. Parks. Tunnels. Factories. Rooftops. You name it. You’ll never get bored of the maps thanks to the AI Director, an artificial intelligence that assesses your team’s strengths and weaknesses and places enemies and supplies randomly each time you play a map. In other words, game play on a map of choice, although no matter how familiar to you, will be different thanks to the AI Director. For example, a Tank may spawn or it may not. It may be at the beginning of the map or at the very end. Zombies will swarm at you in overwhelming numbers, or at times, they’ll go easy on you only to allow the AI Director unleash a Tank on you. You may expect a Smoker to tongue-lynch you from one building, only to be tongue-lynched from another building. A Hunter may pounce you from the ground, or perhaps from atop a building. You may encounter a Witch at the center of the aisle or hallway your team needs to travel on, or you may not encounter one. In summary, Left 4 Dead is an incredible game for the PC and one that should not be missed. It is the best game made by Valve since Half Life 2, HL2: Episode One, and HL2: Episode Two. Left 4 Dead will test your skills as a FPS gamer and will also improve them. Your human teammates will love you if you help them survive the onslaught from the “I
Believe the hype
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.
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.
BEST ZOMBIE GAME EVER!!!
if you are a hardcore gamer you will love this game this game tops all the other zombie games you will never get bored of it you can go online play with friends or go solo
4 Player massacre!
For one of the games that are most looked forward too this year, a zombie survival game that has never been seen before, having 4 players playing cooperatively for their survival, and a new AI engine that has a different scinerio every time, as well as enemy difficulty and placement. It is sure to supply endless hours of gameplay for you and three of your friends, or anyone else you happen to play with
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.
