    Genius

    Left for Dead is a well designed game. The mobs are fun yet simple. The sounds the zombies make crack me up but are well made. This game was not what I was expecting and I didn't care for it the first time I played it. M... Read Full Review

    A decent zombie co-op game that lacks the depth and content to justify a purchase. Rental at best.

    Pros: -Co-op game play can be fun -Zombies attack from random spots which keeps you on your toes -Some interesting game play design ideas Cons: -Too short and not enough levels or content to justify a purchase -L... Read Full Review

    It is an enjoyable game for those who simply want to shoot up some zombies with their friends.

    Left 4 Dead demonstrated to the gaming industry that online zombie games can be successful. After several botched titles by various companies, Valve has introduced its own little twist to the genre, developing a game tha... Read Full Review
