Left 4 Dead is Awesome. Killing zombies that run is also awesome. The only problem I had, was that there are really only 6 guns. They say 10 guns because they include the pistol and the cocktail and all of the bombs. Killing zombies with the pistl is a lot of fun too. If you like to kill zombies that run or just like killing zombies, then RENT THIS GAME!!!
I played the demo off Xbox Live and was flat out amazed! The story doesnt suck you in right away, because it's not surrounded by the story. This game is about the functionality & playability, which in turn, are very, very high.
I couldn't get over right off the bat, of how solid the A.I. system is for bots recovering you when you need to pop a few pain pills or use a first aid kit. You have 10 diffrent weapons to choose from & 20 huge envrionment maps.
The zombies are beautifully designed. The "point markers" which trigger when the zombies attack. What I love about the zombies attacking, is no matter what, it's always a diffrent angle, the element of surprise draws you in & holds you tight in its grasp.
The controls are straight foward. Unless your a younger player, then it may take a couple of minutes to get the hang of the controls. Graphics are lush, bright, beautiful darker colors, lighting, atmosphere is haunting.
The music is amazing! Nothing short of awesome. I hope to find a copy of the soundtrack to this game! You can do just about anything & not get bored. The game is repetative, that's why I gave it a 9. It's the only downfall I've found with this game. Multiplayer is next to flawless. The engine runs smooth & unparalled crisp.
I recommend this game to Any & Every shooter, even the casual gamer. It's definitely a rental, and if you enjoy it as much as I do, I'd then suggest buying a copy. I hope you enjoyed the review. Thank you for reading. Enjoy Gamers!
This is the best multiplayer experience this year. Now, I have always been a sucker for zombies, but that's not what is so great about this game. This game excels at what other co-op games lack at which is CO-OP! You know when you play a co-op and the guy(s) you're playing with just dash off ahead, still competing even though it's a CO-OP match. Here, if you're not working together a hundred percent of the time, you'll be in big trouble. Every minute is situation-solving. Should I heal my partner, or should I keep my medpack for me. Should I jump on a turrent and go all out, or barricade myself within a building. Everything counts on strict cooperation with you're new friends. Now, this game isn't perfect, at least not yet. There's only four campaign chapters (each with 5 subchapters and randomizing zombies, but still...) which means you'll be playing each level... alot. Hopefully, they'll be putting as much effort into new maps and add-ons as the do with the PC version, but we'll just have to see (Orange Box, I'm looking at you.) They other is the limited selection of weaponry. Only about 5 different weapons (excluding grenade types, then 7) that you can mess around with. And lastly, THEY NEED TO STOP PUTTING THAT WITCH RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF MY PATH! (lol, jk jk). All in all, it's a really fun game to drop into with some buddies and see how much they really got your back! :P
