metallicdistortion's Left 4 Dead 2 (PC) review

Zombies, man, F**ckn Zombies

Left 4 Dead 2 was cheap one weekend, so i bought it for like 30bucks, and was plesantly surprised and disappointed all the same. To be honest it feels like L4D 1.5 or something, not a full on sequel, but I can't complain, its a solid zombie blasting, FPS, and I've put my fair share of time into it. 
Graphics: Usually the first thing I rip on in a game, but I love valve's engine and the style works for L4D2 perfectly in every way. Never once did I feel the need to crank it up or turn it down because it never gave me problems. The characters look great, the zombies look great and the guns look great, so what more do you need?
Gameplay: Co-Op zombie murder has never been more fun, save for Killing Floor, which I like better, but still L4D is an excellent shooter, mixing it up with varried game modes and fun MP. The action never stops and while I was hoping for less of a cartoony shooter, it still worked out fine. 
Sound is another big thing L4D2 has going for it. The guns sound good, the voice acting is good and the zombies sound awesome. 
That's all I've got, the game's solid, nothing wrong, but nothing new an innovative either, definately worth a few playthroughs and some damn fun multiplayer. Sadly, though, it's not worth full price, or even thirty dollars and the campaign lengths are pathetic. But this, my friends, is what the mod community is for

     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...
