Excerpt: The unavoidable question with Left 4 Dead 2 is whether it's too similar to its predecessor. The new game is on shelves almost exactly a year later after the original, raising the issue of whether it's really worth $50 for a sequel that doesn't bring anything fundamentally different to the table.
Conclusion: Sound: the music and sound effect are among the best in the buisness. With good music and decent voice acting. The real sound of course come from hearing a boomer and preparing yourslef for the onslaught of zombies which are yet to come.
Excerpt: Many have heard news of the Cold Stream DLC recently available on Xbox Live. Perhaps you’ve heard of Mutations becoming available on demand, or how this new campaign map has been available on the PC for free for quite some time.
Excerpt: Time for a sequel! That’s what Valve must have thought after the equally unexpected as overwhelming success of the first, and quite limited, Left 4 Dead. That the game was a small top title is something you would discover after only a few minutes of playing already.
Conclusion: Whichever you prefer, playing versus with friends or cooperatively against the improved Director, there is almost no fault to Left 4 Dead 2. Yes, Rochelle turned out to be a pretty boring character, and yes, don’t expect to enjoy playing it alone with bots. This is not a single player game.
Review: Left 4 Dead 2: The Sacrifice (Microsoft Xbox 360)
13 October 2010
Excerpt: Given the current trends, I think many people expected to be following coverage for an upcoming November release of Left 4 Dead 3 . Well, I’m sorry to disappoint everyone who wanted to participate in this year’s boycott, but there doesn’t appear to be a sequel releasing this year.
Excerpt: It looks like the hype machine has done it again. After a development period longer than many gamer’s lives, Too Human is little more than a dull action game touting itself as an RPG. The story is a brief retelling of Norse mythology, where gods are now bioengineered cyberpunk supermen.
Excerpt: On Alpha Protocol ‘s box, it says “THE ESPIONAGE RPG”. If that sounds good to you, then this is a game you should definitely buy, since it’s probably the most spy-like spy game yet made and a lot of fun with it. Now for the ‘but': It’s got issues. Big ones. Like?
