Limited in Many Ways

Rapscallion, Amazon
6 June 2012
  • Summary: For me this game was boring and repetitive. There's no story. You just kill the zombies. Zombies, zombies and more zombies. It's also one of the easier FPS games I've played and was over very quickly. I usually play a game three times before retiring it. I'm not someone who likes to play the same game over and over, but I enjoy going through a couple more times to get more out of it, pay more attention to the scenery, do a better job finding things and killing things.

About The Game

Roxy "Roxy", Amazon

  • Summary: Left For Dead is fun to play. Your adrenalin will rise. But the game has a lot of glitches and it has a tendency to be repetitive. The game is clear and works well on my vista system.

Your enjoyment of the game is based on the people you play with

Chad W. Green, Amazon

  • Summary: A very brief summary of the game: Left 4 Dead is a team based survival game. You and 3 other players (can be real people or AI bots) play as a group of survivors trying to escape the zombies. You can also switch roles and play as the zombies trying to get the survivors. Weapon choices are very limited as are the type of zombies you can play as. The enjoyment you get out of this game is really based on the people you are playing with.

Disappointing and strange

Scott Peterson "I.T. Sme", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this game on a whim, having seen it advertised. The best way I can describe Left 4 Dead is it's like one of the newer shooters that has a multiplayer component which lets you replay the same maps you did in the single player campaign. Trouble is there really isn't a single player campaign, only four sequences of maps that are tenuously linked together.

a truly fun game....not much room for resale though

Pamela "tomandpam_us", Amazon
18 January 2009
  • Summary: as a shooter its a hoot and keeps you up and gunning, however, because of the tie in to STEAM, as a resale property its truly a hassle. this game ties itself to a steam account and if you decide to re-sell it the person who buys it will have to hassle with the support at steam to get the cd key reset(which is a real pain).

Costs too much for too little

Ian T. Eichenlaub, Amazon
1 January 2009
  • Summary: The solo campaign is too short, the online play has too many exploits and too little variety. It is a fun game but not fun enough for the price. I would certainly buy it for $20, maybe for $30. If I had not gotten it as a gift I would have felt ripped off.

Fun for a few days, then repetitive.

F. Ather, Amazon

  • Summary: I only play this game with a few close friends that I have been gaming with since 1998. It was extremely fun for the first few days as you explore each campaign and slowly ramp up the difficulty. After finishing up the campaigns, there are several versus modes but they just aren't that much fun. All in all this is a decent purchase but if possible try renting it first.

Nice Game, But Problems

L-Knight, Amazon
31 December 2008
  • Summary: First, I was given this DVD as a gift. I like FPS games, and a chance to mow down zombies is always a good thing. The game is kind of repetitive, but it's meant to be played with friends or just other people, so the main thrust is to have fun with them, not just the game itself. That said, I can't give a recommendation for this DVD. Back in the old days, you would buy a CD of a game and it would install from that CD. Not so with this DVD.

Great multiplayer! Single Player not so much...

Ben M, Amazon
21 December 2008
  • Summary: First off, the graphics and sound are pretty awesome. The sound is probably the best sound for suspense that I have heard in a long time. The gameplay combined with the environment are great! In multi-player is where this game shines...and it doesn't just shine it fully combusts. Online play as the infected vs the survivors is my favorite. My only problem is that the single player game is incomplete.

Repetitive cooperative first person zombie shooter with an emphasis on cooperation for your survival

Jeff Johnson "Jeff Johnson", Amazon
1 December 2008
  • Summary: The zombie apocalypse is here and that's the entire story you need to know in this cooperative first-person shooter and all the story you're ever told. You play as 1 of 4 survivors (Zoey the college student, Bill the war veteran, Francis the biker, Louis the IT guy). The character doesn't seem to matter, it's just a different voice and skin. They will talk to alert you of things like health, weapons, reloading and where you should go next.
