    An action packed zombie fest

    |
    Posted .

    Left 4 Dead has been out for quite some time. Games have come after it that took the zombie genre to new gameplay and immersion,with games as recent as Dying Light and ZombiU doing great and unique things to keep this idea fresh. But playing Left 4 Dead now, I can say this: nothing has come close to this kind of experience before or yet. So Left 4 Dead is as simple in concept as it can be. You along with three other survivors(be it A.I or your friends) must get from point A to Point B. Offering 4 Campains which are short and mostly the same, you would think this game can get repetitive. And you'd be right. Hell the variety of weapons you can use are very limited,only having 7 different guns and 3 different explosives. BUT,like Destiny,the core gameplay here is fun as hell, so after long hours it might get stale, but in short bursts this is a simple drop in and play,no need for remembering details like "where you left off in the story" or "remembering what you have to do". Graphics are nothing amazing in this day and age right now,but they aren't ugly either. They are the definition of average, making things serviceable at best,and bland at worst. Sound is done really well,with the voice overs for each playable character and their contextual interactions feelin genuine when say someone in the team finds medicine or health packs,they will in game yell out what they found for the rest to use. Guns sound average,music is not a big highlight here,but the best sound comes from ambient noises and the variety of zombies and the infamous Witch you may come across at certain levels. What keeps this game from being REALLY repetitive early on is a mechanic they built into the levels called A.I Director,which randomized where and what enemies are in the levels everytime you load it up,so in one level there might be a good amount of really difficult big mini bosses,while playing that level over again might just have higher numbers of regular zombies in different locations with a witch instead. I will say the limited selection of weapons is dissapointingly,but really they all work different enough that it's not a game breaker. You got your typical assault rifle,sniper rifle,shotgun,in pump action and auto,SMG,and pistols,which have unlimited ammo but a long reload time and short bullet count for each clip. The Campains have a movie-like appeal to them,with credits at the end of each campaign emulating a movie style,to the movie poster showcasing each character with either the Gamertag playing as that character or just their character names with "as himself" added to it. It keeps track of a huge amount of interesting stats that are presented after every level in all 4 Campains,showcasing feats such as Most Enemies killed to Least Damage Taken. Co-op is strong here in terms of completing levels. Almost every enemy requires great teamwork to either survive of kill. The emphasis here is quite big,making this game impossible to go at it alone. Luckily the friendly A.I is rather quite impressive. Almost better than human players,as they are more centralized around you and helping you instead of having a every-man-for-himself attitude. If you were to pick up this game,just know these things going in. This game is filled with a lot of run and gun action,team work,and becomes repetitive after long hours of playtime with it,even with the random enemies in each play through. The controls are not typical FPS controls,as there are no iron sights to speak of. You would be best playing this in short bursts, but there is no other game that can match the fun of mowing down hundreds of zombies with little to no break I'm the action. So mindless shooting, constant gunfire, working as a group, and nothing more. That's what this game is about,and in short bursts, that's all right with me.

    I played left 4 dead on the day it released and found it to be a really exciting game. Left 4 dead holds a strong value to me because it focuses on the apocalypse. To me, the idea of slaying zombies who are literally running after you, sounds amazing! the game offer's chilling moments, and definitely keeps your adrenaline going and always gives you the feeling that you are not alone. The chapters are very detailed, you have access to a variety of weapons offered in the game that give you the motivation to just sit there and really put time into it. Overall, if you are searching for a game that allows you to take matters into your own hands, this is the game for you! if running around with a group of people and dominating the apocalypse, sounds fun and exciting, just pick up a copy of left 4 dead and start your journey.

    My son loves this game and can't stop playing it he can't put it down. The great part is that he can also play with his brother and also play online with his friend there also. It's no too gory but just enough. My son has even gotten me to play and I think the controllers are easy to use. Great price for the game he was able to save his allowance in order to buy it the day we where just checking on some stuff. If you want a great zombie game this is it. The reason hey son wanted this game is because he already had the second game and wanted to lay the first game. Would really recommend a third game because the other two where such a great hit with my kids.

    Very fun First Person Shooter - ZOMBIES!

    |
    Posted .

    The Left 4 Dead games are some of my favorite first person shooters. The developers did a great job painting the atmosphere and providing lots of surprises. I play this game with my daughter a lot. Even though the game play is great, I only gave it 4 stars (I would have given it 4.5 if I could have) because it is not one of the best games I have played. 5 stars for me are reserved for fully immersive experiences like the original Dungeon Siege or The Witcher 2. Those games left me anticipating the next time I would get to play them, and this was not that kind of experience. In its genre though, I think it is one of the best.

    An Excellent Gaming Experience

    Posted .

    I enjoy playing this game with my wife and brother-in-law over the internet. The graphics and gameplay are both realistic and very challenging. The AI is very adaptive and responsive to your movement and interaction with objects in your environment. I simply wish the stages were a bit longer and there were more types of guns. However, changing the difficulty results in a new level of surprise. The special infected also offer a great challenge. Overall I enjoy playing the game and would recommend it to any adult, especially fans of the Walking Dead series. Just be careful of the horde.

    This is a fun video game with fairly easy controls. I'm a casual gamer so I'm not very good at some of the most popular games. I highly recommend this, especially for those that, like me, don't spend hours a week on Xbox. It's easy to remember what buttons are for. This makes the game play more immersive. Lots of blood but the infected are not very realistic looking but this doesn't take away from the experience at all.

    A good shooter game

    Posted .

    Left 4 Dead is focused on multiplayer. While the singleplayer campaign is still good on its own, and you are simply teamed with AI, it is not as good as the multiplayer aspect, as the singleplayer AI will only shoot zombies and heal/help players when needed; they won't use molotov cocktails or pipe bombs or open doors or any of that. There are a number of campaigns to choose from, each centered on some primary objective while crossing the map. While each one is essentially "go from point A to point B with stops at points C, D, and E at the end of each level of the chapter of the campaign" there are still numerous differences among each of the campaigns to where you will want to play them all to experience the full story. You might have to make your way down a building, or climb a ladder and then move a crane to continue, or something else. Each campaign can be done in under an hour, with many of them being completed in 30-40 minutes. Each level within a One good feature of the game is the adaptive AI. No two playthroughs will be identical in where and how many zombies spawn. The AI director may throw more (and more powerful) zombies at the player if they are making their way through the levels too easily, or they might tone things down if the player is struggling. The game has two big disappointments: the lack of non-gun weapons, and the lack of variety in the zombie types. Both of these were remedied in the game's sequel, Left 4 Dead 2, but if you have played the sequel you may think this game is lacking. The only option in the game for weapons are guns; there are no baseball bats or other melee weapons. The lack of variety in zombies ("normal" infected, and special infected- witches, boomers, hunters, chargers, and tanks) is somewhat disappointing. If you are being challenged by the AI director with lots of these special infected, you quickly cycle through them all and may encounter multiples of each of the special zombies in a campaign chapter. Each of the special infected has a sound associated with them that alerts the player of what to expect, without directly giving away their location. Sometimes, unfortunately, the normal sounds of gameplay (mostly gunfire) can drown out these sounds though, resulting in an unpleasant surprise. Unless you're a stickler for playing the first game in a series before touching the sequel, I highly recommend simply getting Left 4 Dead 2, which has lots of improvements over this one. However, this is still a pretty good game on its own, and if you just want a decent co-op zombie shooter, L4D is a good choice.

    Had it awhile back but ended up trading it in at G.S along with other games and consoles to help with some financial difficulty, and getting presents for certain lil rugrats their gifts for the holidays. It was well worth giving up something to see your kids have a great big smile on their face. I saw this on sale a BTGO free promo and had the money so i got it back!

    This game is different than most zombie titles.

    The over-all setup of how you travers your different locations and the interactions with the other charictures is well thought out..Even though it is played in the 1st person perspective,I did enjoy the operation of this game more than most other tittles that use the same method.LEFT 4 DEAD is a pleasant surprise for me to play.

    Totally Intense!

    Posted .

    Honestly, I love this game more than other game. The fact that its randomized is that i makes it more intense to play. For example, CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE (and Modern Warfare 2) are totally predictable no matter how many times you play it; You know exactly where each enemy is, you know exactly what to use as a weapon, and sometimes you have to use a specific weapon; It jus does give you the thrill of, "HOLY S#!T WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?!" LEFT 4 DEAD, give you the thrill of not know whats around each corner; there could be a horde of zombies, a Tank, Hunter, Smoker, Boomer or a Witch. Even your optional weapons are not always where you think. Even when you die, everything is changed up; Weapon locations and enemies positions. It definitely give you a challenge every time you play it.
