    Not your Grandmother's Video Game

    You may ask yourself why in the world would a game with such high marks be only listed as "good" in my book. Well, there are several things that are great about the game. The graphics are to die for, no pun intended and the excitement has you nearly having a heart attack even in the first stage BUT.. and a heavy but the game is not perfect. I guess to me it just misses that IT factor to be a perfect game. Some Levels stretch out way too long and as odd as it seems killing zombies gets repetitive especially on the pc after awhile. It may be the fact that I think the controls are more suited to console gaming as I am not an avid user of online games, but in my past dabbling with Unreal Tournament and CounterStrike usually the amount of enemies are kept to a manageable minimum. Half the time it may be your knowledge of the maps that will help you to survive rather than god like skill. It is also shocking for the state of shocking sometimes as enemies can attack at the most inopportune times, not that it is a bad thing but it is not one of MY PERSONAL PREFERENCES.I expected this game to blow me away just like L4D 1 did as it burst on the scene, but it is not the perfect game I would expect. I guess die hard L4D fans may get a kick out of it, but for the casual gamer it is only a good buy. It needs to cutdown on the shock value of the genre and possibly further develop storylines.. so pretty much you are chasing a helicopter... END OF STORY.

    Lots of new stuff Ninja swords ect. and allot of different guns to choose from i think it was a bit more challenging than the first which is a plus for me Laser scopes too was awesome too this game just has allot more than the first i even thought it looked better But i really love the girl from the first one allot more i have to admit that she was allot better looking than this one but its a zombie game so who cares right they made the rescue a bit more challenging too but in a fun way i am glad i got this game i only wish i had picked it up sooner rather than listen to someones review saying it was just like the first one which is not really true these are different people and you sometimes run into survivor sometimes who pretty much stay behind locked doors but still help you if you do a small mission for you this game all in all just has allot more content Pick one up if you like survival horror games you wont regret it

    I bought Left 4 Dead 2 because I wanted to see Valve create another epic first person shooter game that would take the player into a zombie horror flick. The first installment for sure sealed the deal on scaring the player and adding lots of challenging maps. The newly released Left 4 Dead game seems to be well programmed and the graphics are pretty good; however the storyline seems to be a little weak. Note that this game mixes survival mode into the final chapter which makes it nearly impossible to beat. Spending an entire weekend doing cooperative game-play (on easy setting) proved to only allow 1 (sometimes 2) players to live. Other than impossible odds of living through the final chapters, this game is a real hit!

    After hearing about how great Left 4 Dead was, I just had to go out and buy Left 4 Dead 2. This game is addicting! I play for a little while, and before I realize it, hours have passed! That's the kind of game I love to play. This game incorporates teamwork extremely well. I love getting online with 3 of my friends and working together for a win! The game is fantastic, but I do wish that the graphics were a little more in depth. I have a lot of computer power, especially in graphics, but I don't get to flaunt that when playing this game. Overall, I'm very happy I purchased this game.

    The game has even better graphics than the original, and the melee factor adds even more intensity to the survivor experience. The new infected have definetely added a new twist to how the survivors must approach each level. the game is definetly more challenging in realism and adds a realistic feel to it as you play throgh the campaign. If you liked the first I say you should definetely buy this one.

    got this game as a gift for christmas without ever playing the first one... friends at work talked me into it and now i am hooked, still get freaked out once and a while when a zombie appears out of nowhere, never played a game that made me jump before. Now that i have learned to love this game i will try out the first...5 stars isn't enough for me, wish i could rate 10

    The game is amazing. Real life head explosions whed you shot a zombie in the head with a Desert Eagle. Always fun to wack a zombies head off with a baseball batt and watch it fly. Chainsaws have limitrd ammo :(. Never be a zombie when i have a combat shot gun and a baseball bat. I will average 250 in between safe houses. On multiplayer teamwork can be amazing with the right people.

    the gameplay in campaign is so much better. certain details make the game more realistic, such as hard rainfall blind ur farsight vision. campaigns are longer. realism: can't see ur allies location through walls (blue lining around players), player closets are removed, etc.

    This game, much like the first, never gets old, random zombie placement every time you play. Music, zombie count, and path changes according to your progress! It's very well done! Definitely a must for all Left 4 Dead fans, and VALVE fans!

    Definitely an great sequel to L4D. More challenges and extreme play. Can cause frustration at times. Worth the price at any rate. So many more options for online play. In one word FANTASTIC

    If you liked the first Left 4 Dead you will like this one too. The additions of melee weapons and scavenger mode are great. The game is also much more difficult than the first was.

    When you melee the clown zombies you hear their nose honk. Its pretty awesome. The zombie life in versus mode is weak, It could be a bit more challenging.

    Lots of fun. Computer Co-Op characters are poor; Not watching team back; Almost always face direction you are looking in. Great Fun with friends.

    Game is too hard even on easy and since there are no saves it makes it even worst.
