PostSubject: Left 4 Dead Review   Wed Dec 31, 2008 2:35 am

Written by BYD
This is a zombie game. Picture 28 Days later, okay this is what the game is. Describes my friend before I bought it. A fun one at that. Brought to you by the people who made Half Life 2. I hate the half life games, but I love zombies, what will I think of Left 4 Dead?

Story- There are zombies, you're not a zombie. Go go go. This is the story. There is no cutscenes other than the introduction. However, there are four campaigns to play through, each on them having their own movie poster with the 4 characters. Its not clear that your playing a movie, but who cares really? There are four characters who you know almost nothing about. An older man who is a WWII veteran. A stereotypical tough guy who doesn't fear anything and is happy to fight. A college girl to act scared. The only African character in the game who is an average office worker.

If you play on expert, expect to be in this position every couple minutes
Gameplay- This is where it shines. Simple guns and health packs with some pipe bombs. Nothing fancy. Just beat up the bad guys. This game is average when played alone. But with friends this game really shines. My friend and I tried to beat expert by ourselves. No ****ing way. There are many kinds of zombies waiting to separate you from your team. Smokers: they grab you with their tongue and drag you away, zombies hitting you on the way over. Hunters- They pounce on you and tear at you. Boomers- They vomit on you, causing a hoard of zombies to come out of nowhere and attack you. While the campaigns are really short, they take a very long time to beat on expert and are a blast with friends. There is also a mode to be the zombies but I will talk about that later.

Think this picture is exaggerating? Its not
Audio-Zombies sound great. There is always a theme that comes on when the tank comes. Which is the Styx of zombies. He is pretty much the Hulk, he will catch you on expert and kill you within seconds. Great sounds to panic. All special zombies make there own unique sounds. As for the people, ehhh, average acting, but man, there is almost no dialog whatsoever and I think it really hurts the game when people saying RELOADING more than anything

Rants- Couple problems. When you play as the smoker, the tongue guy. ****ing hunters can steal your kills. Say you have someone trapped in your tongue, the hunter can take it from you which is totally a piss off. Also, why the **** is there friendly fire? Expert mode is so ****ing hard. And if a teammate steps in front of you trying to dodge a hoard you can kill them in one shot. What is this ****? Why are they trying to be realistic in a zombie game? Friendly fire is just a way to kill your team and annoy you? I have no idea why they do this. I was getting attacked by two zombies and my whole team shot at them and I lost almost half my health. ****

Overall- Great game. Lots of fun if your a fan of a game of only shooting things. No other objectives or side errands except shoot! THe game is really fun when you alert the hoard and you have to hold off a zone like a mansion and figure out a way to barricade it. Make sure your teammates are good if your playing on anything higher than normal. Because when the tank theme plays. No one can hear you scream. If you get past the huge difficulty, the short lived campaign, and the having to look for friends, then you will find a exceptional experience with Left 4 Dead.

Brute, get this game and live so we can play lol

The funny thing about this game is you see the first pic how the guy is down? You would think that the zombies would eat him now. They don't, when your down they ****ing kick you. They all crowd around and kick you while your down. When do zombies ever do that?
