There aren't many games out there like Left 4 Dead. It's a fast paced zombie killer..
The game runs on the source engine and for this reason it only requires basic system specs.. Great if, like me you, don't have some £700 ultra gaming PC. However, this doesn't mean it looks rubbish. Infact the game looks amazing, I don't even know how, but it does. And I'm not complaining :P
The game is scary, jumpy and is a great laugh to play with friends online. There is an ok amount of online modes, including one where you can play as the Zombies. The game is very intesne - there can be about 40 Zombies running at you at once, this is not only very scary but it is amazing how it doesnt drop the frame rate much at all. This game is very fps friendly.
However its not all fairy dust and rainbows. It only has four chapters. These have (essentially) 5 levels in each. You can complete the game in about 3 hours. However that is not what bothers me, what bothers me is that the game is quite expensive for what it is. There is only 6 guns, and 4 other usable items. (Med Pack, Pain Pills, Molotov Cocktail and Pipe Bomb) and can get quite repetative.
Still, it's a nice idea, and If you can find it cheap somewhere definately worth checking out.
Must buy for zombie fans. Casual buy for normal gamers.
