" Get it off me!!!! " You'll find yourself saying this B-movie one-liner in several situations in this pulse-pounding co-op experience. The game puts you and three friend's in a deserted area looking to get to an extraction point. Zombies will outnumber you 150 to 1 and getting there is much easier said than done especially once you get into the harder modes. The game will last about 2 hours on easy mode but once you get into hard mode it will last about 6-8 hours. This game is not light on the challenge and is looking to squeeze every ounce of skill out of the you by sending wave after wave of zombies on the survivors! Valve has promised a very high amount of download content for this game so don't worry about it seeming to be too short of a game. There is also a multiplayer mode that does not fail to impress playing as a zombie is as deep of a strategic of an experience as being a human. I give this game a 9.75 out of 10!!!!!
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!
