What Gamespot Users have to say about Left 4 Dead

  • User Rating 8.5

    L4D is an incredibly entertaining game with an "edge of your seat" type suspense the entire way through.

    Left 4 Dead is one of the better FPS games I've played. The wide variety of quality attributes of the game make it stand out remarkably, and I have enjoyed playing it for the most part. Although de...

    Left 4 Dead's great characters and entertaining co-op make this zombie apocalypse worth playing.

    Left 4 Dead is a solid co-op based experience. Whether you are blasting zombie's heads off, or finding the best way to avoid them, you will have a good time. I like the fact that it is zombie killing,...

    Killing zombies was never so fun!

    Rated on November 25, 2009 by thedemon44

    Great game, but only zombie-shooting--could get boring.

    Rated on November 26, 2009 by Dbproguy

    I didn't buy Left 4 Dead until a couple of weeks before the release of Left 4 Dead 2, when you could get the package with both for about 65 bucks, so I played about 30 hours of it and that's it but I ...
