Great addictive game

User Rating: 9 | Left 4 Dead 2 PC
Left 4 Dead 2 follows the bloody struggle of four random strangers as they fend off new "Special Infected" super-zombies en route from Savannah, Georgia to New Orleans, Louisiana. They do so over the course of five campaigns, armed with new melee weapons, a larger selection of guns and grenades, and new personalities that make them distinct from the original's fondly remembered quartet.

Left 4 Dead 2 is a bigger, more diverse, more comprehensive package than the original was, offering brand new game modes and a complete multiplayer campaign suite right out of the box. Is L4D2 too soon? Or is it everything Left 4 Dead fans were hoping for?

Left 4 Dead 2 really feels like the game that the original should have been. Even though it was delivered with an astonishing (read: somewhat concerning) turn around time, it ultimately doesn't feel as rushed as the first, offering-with the exception of a still-missing capable single-player component-a solid multiplayer suite that doesn't skimp on modes, maps or options. Versus, Survival, Scavenge and the new Realism mode, which I haven't delved into as much as the other game types, all feature plenty of variety in terms of levels and mode-specific maps.
