haxman1's Left 4 Dead 2 (PC) review

More of the same, but does that make it bad?

When i played the first l4d i was stunned by the game in general. The look, the zombies, everything. I love that game, so when i heard there was a number 2, i was ready to face the horde again. I downloaded the demo and liked what i saw. 
So i bought it when it came out, and played through all the campaigns in about one night. It felt different though, something about it i just couldnt put my finger on. Like i had done this before.  
Dead Center - In my opionion, the worst campaign, i got bored half way through, i had been through the city before, i wanted something different. 
Dark Carnival - The best campaign, something about clown zombies seems right. The roller coaster rush and the stage finish were epic. 
Swamp Fever - Good idea, but every part feels the same except for the escape. Parts like the crashed plane try to keep your attetion, but fall short. The escape on the platation is nice though. 
Hard Rain - Nice style and very enjoyable, the first real scare i got in this game came from this part. Even though you are going back though the same part on the way back to the boat, it feels like a whole new place becouse of the flood. 
The Parish - Good campaign, going throgh the city again, but things like parks and cemetaries help keep it fresh. The final rush across the bridge is the most epic and adrenaline fuled scene in l4d history.  
Special Infected----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   
Spitter - Like a boomer, easy to kill, but if they get you they can fuck up your day. Creepy ass design.  Dislike them 

Charger - Ment to bull full groups, these one-armed freaks die fast but can spread the group out.   Like them  

Jockey - My favorite new infected are creepy little bastards that rape the back of your head. Like them 
    L4d2 is a great game, even if you get that Deja Vu feeling.

     This is an unusual prospect for Valve - a full sequel, actually featuring more content than its predecessor did at release, being put out only a year later.  Given that the Half-Life 2 episodes were supposed to be a quick way to continue the story yet we're still waiting for so much as a teaser trailer for the third one five years later, it definitely seems kind of weird.  Still, the game is here, and improves on the first in a lot of ways.  I wouldn't say it's better, because a lot of it come...

    A great improvement on the original despite being censored- 0

     The original left 4 dead holds some of my favorite gaming memories of all time. Me and my mates would scramble through each of the campaigns together and I swear the amount of time I spent in versus mode rivalled the amount of time I spent in WoW(read:lots).The sequel garnered quite a bit of bad press(locally at least) regarding the fact that the game would be censored for Aussie gamers. This turned me off buying the game so my love of zombie killing faded. UNTIL valve decided to put Left 4 Dea...
