Default Left 4 Dead

Another Valve hit...no surprise there.

If you're looking for any story or plot whatsoever, go look elsewhere. All that's here is a team's (notice the emphasis) will to survive MASSIVE hordes of zombies zombies and more zombies. And they're "modern" zombies too, think 28 Days Later or Resident Evil: Apocalypse. You do get a very small taste of backstory in the opening cutscene, which is about 3 minutes, and that's really it. There are clues of a story going on if you pay attention to the writing left on the walls of the saferooms by other surviors that have since either left or died.. Anywho...if you don't have any way to play online, you're probably not going to like it much, so don't waste your money. You can play through the "campaign" (about 4 hours of playtime, give or take an hour or two) with AI bots, but the online co-op and Versus modes are where this game shines.

The co-op is pretty self explanatory. Play through the "story" with up to 3 friends. I keep [""ing] story and campaign because it's basically nonexistant. Out of the box you can play any of the four areas and any of the 5 chapters of those areas at anytime...no need to unlock anything.

And then there's the versus mode. Hands down the most fun I've had in a multiplayer game since Counter Strike (coincidence?). You play as either survivors (the same four characters you play the "campaign" with) or Infected (duh), which are played with any of four random "classes":

* The Hunter - The quick, agile, scare-the-shit-out-of-people-by-jumping-out-of-dark-corners-and-clawing-them-to-death type (most fun to play, IMO)

* The Boomer - The fat, slow, spit-bile-on-people type (the bile attracts the non-playable Horde class)

* The Smoker - Another ambush type, similar to the Hunter, but not as quick and agile. It's attack spits out a long tongue that pulls the victim back towards it, like a lasso. I guess it's more support than anything, it holds the victim in place while other zombies come and attack them.

* The Tank - Basically a zombie version of the Hulk. Considered to be a "boss". Has insane amounts of health and high resistance to gunfire. Can rip up the floor or ground and throw it at people, or just pummel them to death. These don't show up very often, but when they do it's only one at a time and usually a good time for the other classes to do alot of damage.

That's basically the game in a nutshell. There just isn't much else to it.

So, if you're a fan of zombies, Valve or just plain and simple fun, without all the glam and shine that most game makers try to throw together these days, this is a must play for you. It's most definitely worth the price to rent and you won't be disappointed if you impulse buy it. A 4.75 out of 5.

I downloaded the demo and wasn't really all that impressed with it. It was alright, but it got boring to be honest.

Oh and the fire, at least in the demo, was some of the worst I've seen in a long time. It looked like they pulled it straight from the NES or some shit

Left 4 Dead was WAY better on the PC than on the 360.

That's just the way the Source engine renders fire. It's always been that way. Besides, looking pretty don't have any impact on whether a game is actually good or not. Just look at the two extremes; Crysis (horrible game) and Oregon Trail (who didn't like Oregon Trail day?).

The demo was okay but I've been contemplating buying it anyways since I have 60 bucks to spend and I kind of want a new game,two of my friends at work keep on telling me how good the game is and keep telling me to buy it.

I dunno yet still.

It's just that the graphics were pretty much the selling point of the game. When it was released it was full of bugs and barely playable, even on an extremely high end system that was required to play it. It's like the developers were sitting around one day and thought "Let's make a game that is better graphically than anything before, forcing people to upgrade their systems. And then lets ship it unfinished and buggy, forcing buyers to rely on patches that may or may not fix the problems."

From a smokers point of view, smoking isn't cool. I hate it. I want to quit so bad.. Unless we're talking about weed, in which case, disregard my previous statement.

BUT! Yes Jason, you should buy Left 4 Dead. You won't regret it. I wouldn't lie to you. So..

Hookah.

I've only done it like 3 times and it's been about a month since the last time I went with my friends to do it,and it's not even that bad it just makes you lightheaded for a short period and relaxes you.

I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have a public lounge for it if it weren't okay.

I know I went off from the real topic...my bad

That is the only thing that would be in my hookah...if I had one to smoke on.

L4D...I dunno...seems cool...but also just not really interested in it.
