I dont think just calling it xbox is too far from the truth. I mean kinect asks you to say 'xbox' and not 'xbox 360' so maybe its just for ease of access for people and for stuff like that to make more sense.
@The_Nubster: I know theres not set groups, hence why you...run and gun, kill a group and move forward. You can be as bitchy as you want I have an opinion which im entitled to and its a game I really enjoy.
@Manhattan_Project: And what else is there to do? theres checkpoints to reach and events to trigger, you run to them, while shooting and having a good time.
Im not knocking left 4 dead, its fantastic but you're not going to convince me left 4 dead is some deep strategy FPS.
Anyway, sorry other people, this isn't about left 4 dead if you want to have a go at me for an opinion inbox me lets not ruin this thread.
I've played it a lot on the highest difficulty (although not as much as some I will admit) and it has no strategy other than gather a group, pipe bomb, and go go go. I really enjoy left 4 dead I just don't want another one (and I didn't state there was one) I just don't want "oh you made a noise, heres 60 dudes, oh you didn't make a noise? We'll send a boomer out so we can send more enemy's" which is totally cool and I love that Left 4 Dead exists
Versus mode is slightly different but that's multi player human on human so I cant use that a basis to judge the AI zombies from because people have (generally better strategy and make it more fun)
I just like the idea of "Oh shit, theres a lotta walkers, lets pull on of these dudes over here, fuck him up and try to sneak past without being caught"
However that only sounds fun in a game where its implemented correctly so I guess we'll just have to wait and see how it goes!
@Hugh_Jazz: I agree, I tend to just enjoy games for what they are, dont get me wrong I get bummed out when I hype a game and its not what I expected but like, I enjoyed Downhill Jam, I enjoyed alone in the dark and stuff like that I just have fun with what I've got, although If I payed full whack for it I'd probably have a bit more of a cynical view towards it.
@SomeJerk: Aye I agree, smart zombies would just make no sense, I like my zombies walking dead style, walk forward, if theres a wall, try to get through wall and if not, stand at wall.
The idea of pulling zombies away and dealing with them sounds totally fine to me, what I'm glad its not is another Left4Dead of ZombieZombieZombie no strategy just shoot and run, pulling away, dealing quietly, working my way around a level sounds okay.
@SpaceKangaroo: Yeah that was my thinking paying £50 for a controller which I probably wont use TOO much but I want for my more...I hate to use this word "hardcore" gamer friends and not force them to use the Wiimote for some games if I pick up fifa or something like that.
I'll defiantly give it a chance, I use reviews purely as a "Should I pay full price for this" scale and not a "I'll either play it or not" scale. But I don't hold much hope from Positivity from the GB crew on a Nintendo product. I would LOVE to be wrong about that though.
Thankfully I went for the ZombiU pack for the pro controller with the game as a useful extra. Still Im sure I'll get some fun out of it. I'm like the WORST horror game player ever, Im not the bravest of men so I didn't expect to get much gametime out of it my plan was to trade it in early and get something else!
