Amazon.co.uk Review

These may be credit-crunched times for most of us, but at least business is booming for zombies. With a veritable infestation of zombie-flicks in the cinemas, you can go a step further than watching your zombies getting splattered by doing the evisceration yourself – thanks to Left4Dead 2, the second iteration of the zombie-connoisseur’s favourite videogame.

It is, of course, only a year since the first Left4Dead, with the swiftness of the sequel’s arrival causing consternation in the game’s vocal online fan base. However, allegations of a cynical rush to market prove to be utterly unfounded. With a focus on online and co-operative play above storyline, the original was more of an online zombie-lovers’ playground compared to a balanced conventional game, and as such lent itself well to a swiftly conceived sequel from legendary developer Valve.

The first improvement you notice is that the graphics are much more detailed and considerably crisper – attention to detail which instantly makes Left4Dead 2 even more involving than its predecessor. A new dismemberment engine ups the level of detail: an assault rifle, for example, will gouge chunks of gore and entire limbs from advancing zombies, and you instantly feel more inclined to use whatever explosives come to hand once you’ve seen the limb-scattering mayhem they cause. Dovetailing with the dismemberment system are new melee weapons, including an axe and, that old zombie staple, chainsaw – although our favourite has to be the humble frying-pan, which not only makes an exaggerated clang straight out of Tom & Jerry, but also has the power to rearrange zombies’ facial features in a deeply satisfying manner.

This time around, Valve has worked more on the storyline although, fear not, you won’t have to sit through anything so tawdry as long cut-scenes, and the characters still don’t talk much except to warn each other that specific types of special zombies are incoming. The game has four new characters: Nick (who is a gambler), Ellis, Coach (a reassuringly grizzled type) and Rochelle (a TV producer). Set in the Deep South, the action starts in Savannah and ends in New Orleans. The game has five campaigns, playable co-operatively by up to four people, as well as in Versus and Survival modes; we’ve been told there’s a new game mode, too, but you’ll have to play it to find what it is.

Valve has made a number of gameplay tweaks, which may not be obvious the moment you sit down to play Left4Dead 2 but which make eminently good sense. For example, the days when you could ride out the campaigns’ finales by holing up in a bunker and firing through the windows are gone: the game encourages you to keep moving, especially when beset by seemingly endless zombie hordes. One finale involves crossing a long bridge; in another, you must make your way to a switch to kill a zombie-attracting alarm.

There are, of course, new forms of “boss” zombie, along with all the old favourites like Boomers, Witches, Tanks, Hunters and Smokers. Chargers have been added, which are designed to break up close-knit groups – they have giant arms for knocking people down, yet still move speedily. Jockeys will jump on your back and cause damage until a mate dispatches them. We’ll leave you to discover the other new additions.

Another unique feature which contributed massively to Left4Dead’s success is the AI Director, which made sure that weapon and ammo-drops were placed dynamically in different places every time you attempted a campaign. AI Director 2 will even rearrange the levels, shutting off and opening areas dynamically to shunt you around, according to how well you are doing.

The end result is that in Left4Dead 2 – even more so than in the first game – you feel like you are living through a zombie film with three mates, no idea of what is going to happen next and nothing but your wits and a host of found objects (admittedly primarily consisting of serious firepower) to get you through. It’s sure to create an online sensation. Be very afraid.

Product Description

As if New Orleans hadn't had enough problems lately, now it's got to deal with a zombie invasion as well. Set entirely in the Deep South of the U.S., your team of four players must once again fight for survival against a never-ending wave of mutant monsters.

The dead walk and they're feeling kind of hungry
Fireproof zombies are just one of the new horrors
New melee weapons make combat even more intense
Falling off a bridge is the least of your concerns

Co-operation is the name of this game, as you struggle to reach a series of safe houses and eventual rescue, while all the time being assaulted by hundreds of zombies and other creatures. The five new campaigns (one more than the original) feature a more detailed story and finally explain how the outbreak occurred.

If all you're interested in is the action though then there are new melee weapons - including a chainsaw - and lots of new firearms. With new mutant types as well this is the perfect mix of survival horror and all out first person shooter action. Fearing for your life has never been so much fun.

Key Features
  • Co-operation of the Dead: The fan favourite co-op shooter returns with five brand new campaigns and a more detailed story.
  • Survival equipment: Wield new melee weapons, including axes, baseball bats and a chainsaw -or make use of the new assault rifle or silenced machine gun.
  • Mutant evolution: Face off against new mutant types, including the fast moving Charger, the new Wandering Witch and fire resistant zombies.
  • Virtual Spielberg: Revamped AI director watches how you play and increases or decreases the challenge accordingly, even altering the layout of the levels as it sees fit.
  • Team works: Four new characters to play as: TV reporter Rochelle, mechanic Ellis, conman Nick and an American football school coach known simply as… Coach.
About the Developer: Valve
One of the most influential PC developers in America today, Valve changed the first person shooter forever with 1998's Half-Life. Know for their long development times (and delays) almost every game has been a classic, from Counter-Strike to Portal, Team Fortress and Left 4 Dead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!! 4 Feb 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a relatively new gamer I was introduced to Left 4 Dead by my boyfriend and absolutely loved it!! As a fan of the zombie genre generally I was kind of biased before i started, however it was a fast paced shoot em up with lots of zombies, I almost wet myself I enjoyed it that much. Left 4 Dead 2 is more of the same, it has five campaigns, without much story or many cutscenes (which I really like, it means there are less interruptions to the killing!!) in different areas (the carnival being my personal favourite) which take roughly an hour to complete. I have played this on my own and co op offline play (the bf still hasn't splashed out on getting it online!)and both ways its brilliant. the graphics are good, even when not on a hdtv. all in all if you want a good, fun, gory zombie shoot em up this is the way to go!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This one time my buddy Keith... 11 Jan 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Being a huge fan of zombies and a huge fan of the original Left 4 Dead, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this baby. The amount of different types of game can be staggering (single player, offline CO-OP, campaign, scavenge and survival) but there's enough in there so that if you don't like all of it, you'll still find enough to do to keep the interest.

The characters in the original L4D were all well and good, and I've heard some people moan about how they didn't like the way these new characters; Nick, Rochelle, Ellis and Coach, didn't seem to get on. This isn't exactly true - the more you play the game, the more new dialogue you're presented with showing the characters' relationships to one another. Nick has issues with Ellis, who occasionally takes a shot back at Nick, but Ellis gets on great with Coach, who treats Rochelle like a little sister, who is almost flirtatious with Nick. They're really interesting, funny characters with much better voice acting than the first, and I personally can't get enough of them.

The campaigns in the game are linked by a lightweight story of the four trying to get from A to B to be rescued. Do not hold any misconceptions about L4D2 - there's not meant to be a backstory. The goings on and character build up are cleverly presented to you in the world around you; all you have to do is simply look. Read the graffiti. Listen to the characters, it's all there. It's a zombie apocalypse, what more do you need?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game 13 July 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I brought this game about half a year ago and i bought it just on word of mouth since i never really played this sort of game genre of zombie apocalypse style shooter. Now i am so glad i purchased this and i can't believe i missed out on left 4 dead 1 so i bought that too. I play this game nearly all the time and i bought this after i purchased the overhyped modern warfare 2 which wasn't as good as this game. Doing the single player campaign was a must for me, i didnt want to do it online because i wanted to get into this game for myself and its great to see a variety of common infected to surround you and then get ambushed by the special infected at numerous points in the level which happen randomly and at different points everytime you play.
The characters are a real bunch of... well lets say characters i guess :) Ellis, nick, rochelle and coach all have intresting and funny dialogue/speech as you play through the game, added a nice touch to the creepy and dark surroundings.

If you have access to online gameplay then you should try it, there are a number of different online multiplayer modes including versus, realism versus, surrival, scavenge and a weekly special game mode that value bring out. For example, take online versus where you play alongside 3 other players to survive but theres another team and they play as the special infected. Thats right, you can play as the infected and each have their own cool moves you can use against the survivors. All are playable apart from the witch but thats ok considering the witch doesn't need to attack unless disturbed. It is a fun experience playing online on this game.

Value realised an expansion chapter to this game, much like crash course in the first one. This one is called the passing and it involves meeting the original survivors from left 4 dead 1 so its worth purchasing i feel.

5.0 out of 5 stars They're gonna need more zombies!!!! 22 Dec 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game does exactly what it says on the tin, I bought it for my older brother's birthday (he is now 33) and we spent some quality time bringing the gift of pain to the zombie horde.
The game is cleverly designed to keep you constantly under pressure and repeatedly delivers nasty surprises whilst also forcing players to work as a team.
If you like making the undead 'ave it' then this is the game for you!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars That Thing Was Trying to Hump My Head!!! 20 Nov 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Almost exactly one year after the exceptional Left 4 Dead was released, here we are with a full blown sequel. Having played the game all evening yesterday, I can safely say that it is a worthy purchase and adds to the co op gameplay championed in the original.

Left 4 Dead 2 traces a journey from Savannah to New Orleans and introduces 4 new characters into the mix - Coach, Rochelle, Ellis and Nick. They play exactly the same way as the original 4 characters and the controls are the same as well. However, like the original, Valve have managed to create 4 characters that you will warm to the more you play. The humour and continuous dialogue throughout the action injects character into what is essentially a simple premise; Get to the extraction point and shoot all the infected.

This time round there are 5 campaigns to complete and they all have a very different look and feel to the 4 campaigns in Left 4 Dead. The big addition to the campaign mode is the inclusion of guantlet moments, crescendos where you have to move from A to B to stop an alarm or a trigger of some kind to stop the infected horde from hunting you down. You have to move quickly, but moving as a team is more important than running off on your own. These moments add a new dimension to the game and will be tough to get through against a good team on versus. Also, the finales have been reimagined so that you're not just holed up in a cupboard meleeing and shooting in relative comfort. The melee weapons are an excellent addition and once you start using them you will find it hard to go back to Left 4 Dead. Decapitating an infected with a guitar or frying pan will not get old and the occasional use of a chainsaw is what we should expect in a zombie game.
