Left 4 Dead
One of my Favorite games ALLTIME
This is one of my favorite video gams of all time! The lasting appeal is endless! It came out in 2008 and I'm still playing it! The gameplay is easy to understand and will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Definatly buy it!!!!!!!
Greatest shooter game ever!!!
This game is the best zombie shooter game ever. I first got this game when I got my 360 wich was like a month a ago. This was a good buy the gameplay the great the sounds that u here are amzing. I really think u should but this game for first time gamers.
L4D is a great zombie game
This game has good graphics and controls. No cutscenes except for in the begginning in each of the four campaigns. You can play as 1 of 4 survivors, Louis, Francis, Zoey, and Bill. You will have to work together in order to stay alive, because there is special infected that will leave you helpless (such as the smoker, who will drag you with his tongue, or the hunter, who will pounce on you and keep clawing you until someone gets him off.) The 5 guns (the pump-shotgun, the uzi, the auto-shotgun, assault rifle, and hunting rifle) 2 grenades (the pipe bomb, which attracts zombies with its red light and beep, and the molotov, which will burn zombies, or other survivors if your not careful) pain pills, which give you a temporary health boost, and the medical kit, which heals 80% of your health, and an extra pistol are all of the thing you can pick up in Left 4 Dead. All in all, a great game. I highly recommend it for any fan of first-person shooters.
Excellent gameplay -especially online
What is there not to love about a group of 4 survivors fighting zombies together to the very end? One of my biggest problems with video games over the years is the lack of variability in gameplay. For example, if you played Doom 2 (I know this is going WAY back, but it's the first thing that came to mind to make a point), all the demons/enemys/etc are always in the same exact place, and you can expect where to fire and you could eventially play with your eyes closed. Left 4 Dead always leaves you surprised with Zombies always spawning from different places, or hoardes coming at completely different times/places during gameplay. This is also true with items such as health, pain pills, and pipe bombs. If you're looking for a Zombie game with a story, then you need to purchase Resident Evil. Left 4 Dead is an amazing survival horror game that dumps you right in the middle of the Zombie nightmare. Hey, who has time to figure out the cause of the zombies when you're fighting for your life!
Can't wait to get this game...
But none of my friends are getting it. I'm a fan of Valve, and Source, and all those Half-Life/Counter-Strike developers, but that is because I've played CSS and Half-Life 2 (as well as Team Fortress 2) on the Orange Box and on my PC. I was hooked on buying this 4 player Co-op CSS-like Zombie horde game the first time i saw live game play and heard that the AI Zombies are going to be like the fantastic CSS Bots. There was one problem, none of my 360 friends have any idea who Valve is. They are all concerned with getting the next Gears of War (not that I disagree with them), and are pretty much "takin' a dump on the little guy". I have tried to influence their thoughts at the next best game, but with COD: WaW, Mirrors Edge, and Gears 2 just around the corner, I doubt many will spend the $** on another game unless they get it for the Winter Holidays. As for me, this is among 3 games I will be waiting for during Christmas, and I hope its revolutionary Zombie gameplay makes it one of the best I own.
ADDICTING LIKE YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE
So I originally wanted Left for Dead 2 but the Gamestop didn't have any in stock so I got this one instead. The first night I played it, I didn't think I would like it then I discovered the online campaigns. OMG Its so fun, especially with the mic on. I'm so addicted to this game. Being an older game I would've thought for sure they would have closed the servers for it but I'm glad they didn't because its a game game to play online and personally think its the best zombie game period. This relays heavily on its sounds so this isn't a game you can play on mute. The more you play the more little tips you discover like try standing in a corner for maximum protection, stay in a group as much as possible and so on. Its a really fun game. Next thing you know your going to be dreaming zombies.. lol But seriously this is a great game.
One of the games of the year.
Wow. That's all I can say is wow. When I first played the demo for Left 4 Dead after waiting a good 2 years for the game I was so happy as the game was everything I thought it would be. Fun, fresh, new, beautiful, full of action and did I mention fun? If you love zombies, action and co-op, this HAS to be on your list, period. There are a few things that bug me about the game, one of them being the story is usually just plain where it pretty much only says "Oh, you have to get to a hospital" or "Oh, you have to go to an airport" I don't really care about stories in games, but I wish they could of done a bit more. Plus in the game you will find random writings on the walls which will tell you about other people who are trying to survive, but due to the 360's graphics not being as great as a modern day PC, it might be hard to read. Anyways, those are two super small bad things about the game, and to me, the pros smash down the cons with a hammer. This is a game that HAS to be on your holiday wish list.
bring on the zombies
lets start off saying left 4 dead is strictly an online game. if you play offline only then you will be dissapointed to an extreme degree.Now i will review the game. Left 4 Deads unique presentation left me craving for more. You get to walk through four innovative campaigns that include amazing set pieces ranging from a hospital rooftop, to a boat dock,to an airport runway, toa corn field scary!The haunting music fits each little scenario within the gameplay. for an example there is a witch ahead therefore the musci becomes gloomy,a tank approaches and the music amps up preparing you for a fight. The campaigns require extreme teamwork and communication is manatory(headsets people). Versus however is a letdown. Though it is fun to play as the zombies its bad when you only have two campaings, which Valve promises to fix with DLC. Oerall it is a great zombie game which will stimulate your scare glands the first playthrough. This allowed me to give it a 10 as a reccomendation
THE BEST ZOMBIE GAME OUT THERE!
Wow! That's all I can say about this great game! I for one always wanted a great zombie survival game since I first saw dawn of the dead. I want that feel of adrenaline rushing through your body running from zombies struggling to survive. Well, this game delivers that. With the great idea of an AI director, this game brings a whole new meaning to AI! The AI will adjust to your style and be sure to give you a challenge if you seem to be coasting along. The game even places weapons according to your gameplay! However, I do have some complaints. The zombies themselves (not boss infected) are really unresponsive if you move into an area where its an open field or city the zombies don't even notice you until you shoot or startle them. The music in the game also gives away the boss infected surprises in the game. Whenever I hear the piano keys I instantly know that there are boss infected in the area and I prepare for the worst. Though, these are only minor flaws in a great game that is a definite MUST BUY!
Taking Online to the Next Level
Left 4 Dead without a friend is not worth **$.If you play alone you will have a lacking amount of fun with the AI controled characters.It really has no storyline.Even though playing through this game without online may not be fun online is insane.Playing online makes it seem like your playing with real humans.Surving the zombie apocylopse has never been funner as the online in this game.Even though the game has about 10 weapons its insanely fun to play online and i couldn't say that any more.Playing with a friend is so realistic and comunicating is like your giving commands in the actual apocylypse.Shooting is the main theme of the game.Also the basic controls are pretty easy to learn.The sounds are insane when you hear crazy zombies charging at you.The game is very easy and the graphics are amzing and bright.Achievements are easy to obtain so if your into achievements like me you will enjoy this game.So overrall this game is great...with a friend.
