Left 4 Dead
Left 4 Dead is a survival action game from Valve that blends the social entertainment experience of multiplayer games such as Counter-Strike and Team Fortress with the dramatic, narrative experience made popular in single-player action game classics such as the Half-Life series of games.

Set in the immediate aftermath of the long-awaited zombie apocalypse, L4D's single-player and co-op game modes are played out across four sprawling "Movies" set in a variety of urban and rural environments. Each "Movie" has an over-riding team objective, is comprised of five large maps, and may be played by 1 to 4 human players. New technology dubbed the "AI Director" is used to procedurally generate a different experience each time the game is played. Just as in Hollywood films, the Director calls for new monsters, sounds, and action as it tailors the gameplay experience based upon the team's performance. In Left 4 Dead's Vs. Mode players may play as a Survivor or as one of four types of "Boss Infected." Each of the "Boss Infected" possesses an exceptional mutant ability - such as a 50-foot tongue lasso (Smoker) or a giant belly full of explosive methane gas (Boomer) - instead of traditional firearms.

Left 4 Dead: Survival Pack
The Left 4 Dead: Survival Pack is a collection of new content for 2008's Multiplayer Game of the Year. Headlining the pack is the new 1 to 4 person game mode, Survival, that challenges players and teams to "survive" unremitting swarms of zombies on over 10 maps. Rounds are scored by length of survival, and times will be uploaded to leader boards. Also included in the Survival Pack are two additional Versus campaigns. Each campaign features 5 maps for additional play of the four-on-four multiplayer game that allows players to compete as Boss Zombies versus the Human Survivors.

 Unbeatable game

One of the best games i have ever played I've had l4d since december and not one day has passed that i havent played it. It never gets old as although u play the same maps everything depends on what your team does and how the enemy team reacts. The graphics are good and the feel of the game is one of a zombie horror film. If you are into fps games i strongly suggest this one. Once you start killing zombies you'll never want to stop

Well as a PS3 owner I've been a bit gutted that this hasn't come out for the console. Saw the GOTY edition at this great price and thought I'll just have to play it on my PC!

Boy am I glad I made that decision. This game is immense. Granted you need to know what your buying, its essentially a short game which plays simply. Get from point A to B, avoid getting killed, kill lots & lots of zombies. It's got valves class all over it though. Presentation is great, the game plays superbly, the computer AI is top notch and with friends it really comes into its own. Just don't be the one to startle the witch if you don't want some abuse!

Buy, enjoy, realise you've played for 8 hours straight! Gaming at its best!

 Zombie killing fun

This game should deffinately be in your selection.
When I first played the game I was on my own and it just felt dull, but with a group of friends this game is amazing.
If you enjoy games that require team work then this is the game for you. Just make sure you get your friends to buy it too.

 A fun game with a few (not quite minor) flaws

I didn't care at all for this game at first, a friend of mine dragged me into it and then gifted it to me for XMas. What I experienced was a very fun co-op game but after a while I came to see its flaws which led to me stopping playing and deinstalling it.

There're basically two different game modes: co-op and versus (I count survival to co-op).
In co-op you play with others again A.I. controlled infected while in versus you compete against other players who control special infected.

The big problem is the lack of maps. There're only 5 maps which makes co-op soon very boring.
Versus doesn't get old fast but since the gameplay is heavily biased towards the survivors the fun doesn't last very long, either.

All this aside, this game became redundant with the release of L4D2 anyway, since the sequel includes every gameplay feature of this game and the L4D campaigns can be imported.

So yeah, if you're looking for a co-op zombie game buy L4D2.
