First thoughts on the new Left 4 Dead 2 DLC

Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5141 posts) -

I just finished my first game of the new DLC (The Passing) and my first thought is AWESOME.
Why you ask me? Very simple I just got 20% more game for free! and if thats wasn't enough the new campaigns is one of the better ones from the six campaigns if not the best. It seems Valve took a good look at the best parts from Left 4 Dead and made them into a whole new level for instance the storm and rain effects from Hard Rain make a comeback. The levels in the DLC are very diverse and fun, and one last treat is that you get to see and meet some familiar faces.  
In conclusion I just want to say play this DLC even if you have to pay for it (im talking to you Xbox playes) its a ride thats worth every second of your time.    
Sorry im keeping this short but these zombies aren't going kill themselves.

I thought it was a little short and not the challenging.  I'm going to replay it on a higher difficulty and see if I will enjoy it more.

I think it was great. Not that long, but definitely an adrenaline rush.

the campaign itself is great; the new dialogue is often the best part.
 
example; ITS KISSIN TIME

It was kinda meh for me, and even more so that i had to buy it on xbox. it also seemed buggy many times i saw SI stuck on stuff not doing anything. best part was the wedding and reading that one places bathroom wall.

All the dialog about Zoey was funny as hell.

My favorite is when Ellis mentions how hot Zoey looks holding a gun.

I paid $8.96 Canadian for it. Totally worth it. So much better than Crash Course.

I found The Passing to be great.

I liked it, I just wish there was more interactions with the original cast.

I paid 7 bucks for it on the 360 and tho it is "short" I feel that just the two nights I've spent playing it has already given me more than my money's worth.
