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

| | See all Smertnik's reviews (5)

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.

  dissapointed !

Sorry to spoil the great reviews but i was dissappointed.

Ur just doing the same thing over and over, fragging zombies. The graphics are old looking, their's no story or cutscenes.

The only fun is playing with friends online and i think even that could very quickly become boring. If i could exchange this i would so be warned it's not for everyone.

  Reloading!!

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!

This is the best zombie shooter to have other than res-evil. Co-op play is brilliantly done on and offline. The campaigns are not very long but crank it up to hard and you will struggle. Love the use of sound in this game reminds me of the eerieness of the likes of doom 3 and dead space. A must buy.

If you're a fan of zombies, i.e you played resident evil, enjoyed watching 28 days/weeks later, shaun of the dead etc... the list goes on - you will love this game.

You start off with the 4 of you (either you + 3 computer characters of 3 of your buddies if you are playing online) abandoned on a city rooftop where all there is hordes of Zombies for miles around. The voice acting is not too bad for a game and the story trails off a bit after the initial cinematic. However the gameplay is great - if you hook up with your friends on voice chat you will have a great laugh on this going through the levels (I know I did).

The only thing that limits this slightly is 4 players, I realise why they can't have more than 4 - but at least one or two maps where up to 6 is possible would be a real bonus as if you have more than 3 friends with this, inevitably - someone will get left out. What really made it 4 stars and not 5 is the limited selection of guns. The other items are great though, blowing up zombies with pipe bombs or molotovs is just hilarious on occasions and you can also use gas canisters and petrol cans to the same effect.

Pat on the back from Valve for making another great game on the HL2 engine - I would highly recommend this one.

I have the original version of this game with survival downloaded not included. Its a fantastic game... i absolutely love it i never get sick of it, i must of played the campaigns online a million times over, im now addicted to the versus multiplayer which is brilliant. This is a fantastic fps, if you like killing zombies its brilliant or even just a good fps.

This is the most awesome game i`ve ever played in FPS.
It feels so realistic and when played in darkness makes you jump when not expected.
Although i have completed the single player mode, the On-Line game play is second to none as well.
This is a must buy game for playability and graphics.
Nothing out there compares to this game as of yet so i rate this the tops.
Come find me on-line and join my team in Survival or Campaign modes. These are the best with some awesome graphical displays shown.

  Fantastic

pretty much killed every other zombie/FPS game youve ever played. Get 3 mates and its so much like being in a movie, even watching you best mate get dragged away screaming while you go wading in is just plain incredible. Immersive, scary yet a laugh fest & social event. L4D is a masterpiece.

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.
