Summary: I have had a blast playing this game, and would still be playing it had I not finally moved up to L4D 2. The best part about it is the player made additional maps, campaigns, and modifications to characters, items, and monsters, you can get for free online. After you finish the included campaigns, just do a search for L4D campaigns and there is a site that has a ton of them.
Summary: I have been playing the game about one week. Still learning my way around the maps and how to effectively use my weapons. I have been playing online and it's a riot in coop mode with three other people. Most folks in the community actually try and work as a unit. That's the point of the game. The zombie hordes are devastating but, a hoot as well. Nothing fancy here. Just trying to survive and popping a lot of zombie skulls.
Summary: This game is one of the best ever. It provides unlimited fun because after you beat the 6 campaigns it comes with you can go to ([...] ) and get hundreds more maps for you and your friends to play on. I highly suggest that you convince your friends to get the game as well because it is designed for coop play. Also if you are willing to throw down some more money you can get Xbox controllers and play split screen on PC! ( [...
The best co-op FPS out there (till L4D2 came out anyway)
19 July 2012
Summary: This is one of the best co-op First Person Shooters out there (second to Left 4 Dead 2). Teamwork is essential in this game; you'll be killed rather quickly if you stray too far from your three companions (either human or AI controlled, but there are always three). It was rather difficult to get the game working (Steam is a load of garbage), especially on three computers for LAN games.
Summary: Ahh, the classic zombie shooter Left 4 Dead 1, but i have got to say, the sequel is easily better, more weps, more maps (plus the l4d1 maps), and more Zombiz (:3)so if i were you, just get the sequel. This is kid reviewer simon signing off.
Summary: Left 4 Dead is a great zombie apocalypse FP shooter game that is largely geared towards online multi-player play over single player campaign. I've played through all the single-player campaigns and done some online gaming for this game. In the single-player mode, you can select any level of any one of the campaigns to play on or play through them at in order.
Summary: I love this game. It's really fun and I love playing it with my friends. Only complaint is that my PC isnt fast enough to run it and lags alot... but thats okay because I'm buying stuff to make my computer faster! :) Also, buy l4d2 isntead of l4d1. More weapons, boss infected, and other things.
