    Intense zombie action that can only be surpassed by it's sequel.

    Left 4 Dead is a really fun game. Although I don't own it, I've played it at my friend's house long enough to give a good review. You play as a group of survivors of a zombie Apocalypses, and you fight your way through 4... Read Full Review

    Great game, poor play.

    When l4d came out, I swore I'd missed a couple of nights sleep. But after a week of solid gameplay, it started getting repetitive and dull. The campaign is short (I finished the whole thing in a day) and has no story apa... Read Full Review

    If you like shooting zombies, you'll like Left 4 Dead.<br />

    I tried in the past to finish the single player campaign years ago, but sadly it turned boring after few trials. The main purpose of the so-called single player campaign is to escape with your teammates with a boat. I'm... Read Full Review

    An interesting use of of decent AI, multiplayer capabilities, and on-edge gameplay.

    Positive: - The AI director keeps you guessing, but tends to follow a pattern of making the game tough when you're doing well and easy when you're doing terribly. - Decent multiplayer fun (however, see "Negative" next)... Read Full Review

    It is the multiplayer that really shines.

    I generally do not play online in video games which is usually because I cannot connect to servers for some reason, but since L4D's biggest attraction was it's multiplayer I had to try it a few times in an internet cafe ... Read Full Review

    Multiplayer Zombie slaying fun

    First of all, this is a 1st person shootem up game about zombies and weird mutants, so don't expect too many mind puzzles as the ones you would find in other 1st persons such as "Bioshock" or the thief series games. I'm ... Read Full Review

    This is why we all wish for a Zombie apocalypse to actually happen!

    A week ago I was taking a walk through the town, thinking about how should I spend the extra hour I have while waiting for my friend to show up. So I decided to visit a local game shop, in hope of nailing some cool retai... Read Full Review
