  • Pros: Great graphics. Solid gameplay. Genuinely requires teamwork.
  • Cons: Uninspired setting. Only 4 maps. No more of a "complete game" than Portal or Team Fortress.

A game from 2 years ago

  • Summary: A Zombie Apocalypse with 4 player co-op what more can you ask for? Its a simple great idea the guys at valve put to work and it turned out nicely, Replacing the shambler-esque zombies with a 28 days later rage infected zombie but as the story says they are just infected people of a rare strain of the rabies virus.

Fantastic cooperative fun, a must-buy zombie-em-up

  • Excerpt: "LEFT 4 DEAD is a first-person zombie survival cooperative game by VALVE. Copied from DooYoo account of the same name Gameplay The sound of zombies raged from all sides as we struggled through the floors of the abandoned, bloodied hospital. Helicopters fly dangerously close overhead and the building began to shake as the amplitude of the oncoming zombie attack became more apparent, more intense, and infinitely more deadly. Another three people ...
  • Pros: Great gameplay, moody and atmospheric consistently, brilliant with friends
  • Cons: Engine looks a tiny bit dated

Left 4 Dead review

  • Excerpt: "...is better than the sequal Left 4 Dead 2. The graphics on the game are quite realistic and this enhances the gameplay quite alot, with the effects that the developers used if you max the graphics out the game looks really good compared to the game play if you have it set on low/medium settings. The sound is quite good also, although this also can depend on your sound card and or speakers/headphones. I would recommend using headphones in this game ...
  • Pros: Good gameplay, nice community, lots of fun
  • Cons: some buggy servers but that is the server not the game, can get a bit repetative

RE: Left 4 Dead

robwillphill, Empire Online
4 November 2009
  • Summary: No depth. Just shooting a load of zombies - a HELL of a lot of zombies. And that is, in this case, not a bad thing... Multiplayer is better than the single player campaign and will get you off Modern Warfare for a long time. 8/10 ...

A Must Buy For any Zombie Slayer Fan!

Burman, Play.com
13 December 2008
  • Conclusion: I bought this game about a month ago and im still enjoying it, even if you don't have any friends that own this game you form such a strong bond with the people your playing with, all four of you trying to stay alive and make it to the next saftey room, you end up making friends! This game dose have alot of replay value, BUT with only 4 chapters i and nearly every other zoey, bill and francis out there are waiting for some new levels and new zombie killing experiences!
