Will we ever get tired of killing zombies??? Not if Valve keeps putting out games like this. Left 4 Dead 2 is everything you loved in the first installment on steroids! We have 5 great campaigns here that will keep you and your friends on your toes for a really long time. This time around, survival mode is included in the game which is really nice. Also, Valve gave us what we wanted which was some sweet melee weapons! Look, I hear a lot of people saying that it's too short and its just the same thing over and over again. With the switching of the AI, you are getting a different experience every time regardless how many times you have played the game. I bet the people who say that its too short have only played it on easy or normal. Try playing it on advanced or extreme and tell me the same thing. Last but not least, this game is meant to be played with three other friends. Gameplay: 9 Presentation: 8 Lasting Appeal: 10 Overall : 9

Left 4 Dead 2 is a very enjoyable shooting game. It improved many features from the first game such as the quantity of weapons, the amount of zombies in one screen, and even the story.
For a zombie apocalypse game, players have an arsenal of weapons to choose from, such as melee weapons, guns, special ammunition, unique grenades, and etc.
The first L4D only had 200 zombies per level, until more of them will spawn later on. The 2nd L4D can have up to 500 zombies per level. Adding more zombies in the game will further improve the overall fun you will recieve when playing this game.
There are new zombies to fight and play as.
Spitter: Spits acid
Jockey: Jumps at you
Uncommon Infected: There are 5 types of Uncommon Infected that are found only in their respective campaign levels. They are not as significant as Special infected but they still have an influence to gameplay.
With 5 campaigns comes with a story of L4D2. It's not engaging or interesting, but they at least expanded upon the L4D universe.
The best part in the game are the gametypes. You have new ones like Scavenger and Realism. Scavenger is just like versus but you stop survivers from getting gas cans. Realism is a campaign gametype where everything is more "realistic".
Overall, Left 4 Dead 2 is an awesome game and it deserves a 10 for its unbelievable replayability and the fun of its multiplayer features.
Very fun FPS that involves many zombies. The game is much better than the first one and more fun. I wish the campaign was a bit longer, but then again, who doesn't? My only major grief with the game was that most of the story takes place in the day time, which makes the game less spooky, and takes away from the "feel" of the game. Hearing a hunter's scream in a dark alley or office building is just a bit more interesting than hearing the scream and seeing down the street in broad daylight. Still though, a very good game and worth a play through if you are an FPS or zombie fan.
