Pros: AI Director this is the plus point, making is a different game play expreince every time to play it. Nice music score, enhancing the game play Fun to co-operate with the team members and play The graphcis are very nice, nice replay value
Cons: Less weapons to choose from, can equip only on pipe bomb or Molotov cocktail .
Conclusion: GJ: This is one of the few FPS games I’ve played where I think the console wins. The biggest reason being the XBox live community. I’ve had no problems finding three other people to play with even when my friends are all offline. I’ve had a problem once and it was easily rectified by booting and blocking the offender, something I’ve always found a little harder to do when running a PC-based game.
Conclusion: Well, being a Valve game, there are a ton of PC players, but the sheer ease of the 360 community, coupled with the luxury of couch based play make it a great way to play. As to their quality, it is tough to say. I’ve yet to play L4D with random folks, but I’ve heard it is slightly better than other games. The PC is going to home a lot of good players, but they can be dicks about their console counterparts. Both platforms seem to be victim of exploits too.
Conclusion: One of my friends is pushing me hard to get this. My big decision is 360 or PC? Ahhh! My friend is on the PC, but he’s not THAT good a friend. Anyone know what the quality of online teammates on each platform?
Conclusion: I have this game too! Valve is able to make some of us feel like hypocrites on this one. Left 4 Dead succeeds by doing things that piss me off in other shooters. Zombies will spawn from anywhere regardless of locale, and the game no problems spawning a special zombie around a corner just to make the situation that much stickier. I don’t have a problem with this, because it is emulating zombie films.
Pros: Constantly changing game dynamics with AI DIrector; Challenges players to actually work together; replayability; Visual and audio queues of impending doom.
Cons: Demands for team co-op play means that when 1 player goes off on their own they are usually screwed & the rest of the players have to work harder to rescue/find them/protect them. Friendly Fire is a pain on Expert (quit strafing while firing people!)
