Amazing Game

on 11/18/2008

Basically you run around and shoot zombies. There are different types of zombies you run into that keep you on your toes, along with 4 different difficulty settings from easy to expert. You can play single player or with up to 3 other people online. I recommend downloading the free demo that Steam has. It will let you play the first 2 levels and see some of the different types of zombies. One thing I really like about this game is that you definitely have to work as a team on almost any setting. Highly recommended for those who like to run around shooting. PS. Graphics are incredible on high settings, I'd recommend a pretty beefy system all around for this one.

Review Everyone loves zombies, and it's safe to say we've all spent some time capping the undead before, if only in our dreams. Left 4 Dead presents the most satisfying zombie massacre-ing experience out there. The game puts you in the shoes of one of four survivors: biker dude Francis, hardened vet Bill, college student Zoey, and corporate office guy Louis. Plot? Who needs a plot? Zombies are everywhere, shoot them in the head! There's no time for a story when there are zombies to kill! The four missions in L4D are structured like mini-horror films and take the survivors through a hospital, a rural train yard, an airport, and farm country with each mission divided into five sections with an extraction point on the final map. Only, once you make the call for evacuation, you'll have a good ten minutes to fend off everything the game can throw at you until help arrives...Fast zombies? Check. Non-stop tension and intensity? Check. The quality of gameplay we expect from Valve? Check. When it comes to co-op multiplayer, Valve is consistently ahead of the curve and excellent at making games that force players to work together, which is incredibly welcome if you've experienced the frustration of the one kid on your online team playing death match while the rest of you try to cap an objective. Don't worry about that kid, not only can you vote him out of the game, he's having his brains ripped out by a Hunter several hundred yards down the road in front of you. You're not even going to bother to revive him. For any fan of zombies, horror, shooters or anyone looking for a multiplayer experience that feels new, Left 4 Dead is a must-buy. You'll be wasting the undead long into the New Year, especially if you want the achievement for killing 53,595 zombies. Yes, that's just one more than Dead Rising's Zombie Genocider achievement.
