Summary: Left4Dead2 is a first person shooter that allows you to kill hordes of zombies... It does get repetitive after a while and the story line could be better. The best part is that each "stage" is treated like a zombie movie and at the end credits roll stating things like "378 zombies were killed during...
Summary: When I first got it I didn't know it was going to take like two days to download from Steam. It's very nice on single player. Don't bother trying to play online if you have a windows 8.1, trust me because you'll just be wasting you time contacting steam support and they will take you on a 2 or 3...
Summary: The biggest selling point about this game is that it's multi-player coop online. You have to work together in order to survive. Other than that, it's extremely repetitive and monotonous. The zombies swarm at you in predictable cycles. There are no puzzles or anything challenging to solve.
Summary: its still fun and definitely worth the 20 dollars. Steam is a big issue for most since you never actually "own" the game. you are really just purchasing privileges to use the game. Steam has its own Pros and Cons but it doesn't have to do with the game so no point in adding it.
Pros: -Lots of fun with your friends -Its nice to take the side of the zombies. -actually takes teamwork to succeed in all of the game modes -Nice and balanced gameplay -the almost constant updates and the addition of player made skins and models is nice.
Cons: -Pubbing(just playing random servers) isn't always fun. you get stuck with people who don't even know the controls and are confused by the game all the time. -Versus is mostly ganna go 2 way. either dominate and the other team rage quits before the match is over. or you get dominated and your tea...
Great Game too bad it requires steam and a huge download

Summary: Steam in and of itself is not a bad thing. THe ability to buy games through tem and they keep the registrations and you always can reinstall is a good idea. However I did not buy this through Steam and would like to use it on multiple machines. Not at the same time but Steam will not allow this.
Pros: It really is a great Game. Marred only by the Cons.
Cons: Can only be installed and played through the steam client. You buy the disc to install and have the media for futrue use. Developers have gotten lazy and now use Steam as their catch all delveiry and copyright protection system. Once you buy this disc you can never resell it, reinstall it elsewhe...
Summary: Overall I like this game, but have some issues with it. I have a new Dell desk top, but Valve seems to have problems "recognizing" my Radeon grapics card. At certain points in each campaign I find the jerking and stuttering, making it hard to move or aim.
Summary: the overall game was okay, single not much, this seems to be more of a polished multiplayer game then singleplayer, the only let down for me is that this game lacks a storyline, this game is nothing more than shooting zombies no story mode whatsoever, just run and live and shoot and help, there are...
Summary: I played the original L4D on my brother's XBox 360 a couple times before his 360 gave up the ghost. He subsequently bought a PS3 instead so I never had a chance to go back and play it again. But the few times we played it together (co-op, not online), it was a lot of fun.
Summary: I'm a big fan of HL2 and it's episodes, and kinda expected something similar in L4D2. However the big emphasis in L4D2 is cooperative online play, and there's little plot or backstory in the single player mode. Also there are no puzzles, just thousands of zombies running toward you. Very monotonous.
Pros: -Good graphics + good performance (150-250 fps for me) -Smart AI teammates
Cons: -No option to save a game!!! -Poor single player plot. -Graphics not as good as crysis in my opinion.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game more. It has all the elements of a great game but doesn't quite come together. I've played this as single player and as a group on-line and both times problems arise. Some good points are new zombies and their distinctive screams/warnings.
