Manufacturer's Description

Left 4 Dead (L4D) is a new action title from Valve, creators of the Counter-Strike and Half-Life games, that promises to redefine the co-operative genre as those titles did for multiplayer and single player action games.

Set in a modern day survival-horror universe, the co-operative gameplay of L4D casts four "Survivors" in an epic struggle against hordes of swarming zombies and terrifying "Boss Infected" mutants.

The Survivor Co-op Game Mode is played out across four sprawling campaigns, set in urban and rural environments. Each campaign has an over-riding team objective, and is comprised of five large maps. The campaigns link together to tell the story of the Survivor's escape to safety. The team of four Survivors may be comprised of 1 to 4 human players, allowing for single player and multiplayer co-op games.

Next generation AI technology powers all non-player Survivor and zombie characters. This is facilitated by the AI Director, a pool of systems used to procedurally generate a unique experience by monitoring the players' experiences and tailoring the pacing and difficulty of action for each game. This makes for a different experience each time the game is played.

In Left 4 Dead's Vs. Mode players may play as a Survivor or as one of four types of "Boss Infected." Each of the "Boss Infected" possesses an exceptional mutant ability - such as a 50-foot tongue lasso (Smoker) or a giant belly full of explosive methane gas (Boome) - instead of traditional firearms.

I think I've found my new favourite shooter.

Bought this about three hours ago and I've only just put my head back up. My jaw has bounced off the floor several times, and I need a good cuppa and a sit-down.

The premise is simple. You are one of four survivors of a zombie apocalypse, fighting off the horde and trying to survive. But, you know that anyway, don't you? You want to know if it's any good, and the answer is a definitive Yes. Valve have once again blown expecations away.

You can play either online or with the computer-controlled teammates, and I'd recommend trying the computer first, as you'll get the hang of it in a "safe" environment.

Mind you, it really doesn't feel very safe. Right from the off, when you tool up, Counter-Strike style, it's action all the way. And ammo is, rightly, a bit scarce so you'll be shooting with care, most of the time. However, it's properly panic-inducing when the full horde show up (and they do, often!) then you're overwhelmed, firing blindly all around you and praying for an end to it all. Honestly, it's just great. There's a good few different zombie "classes" to face up against, including Smokers, who explode in a cloud of choking gas which blinds you and they have another nasty trick up their sleeves too; hunters who as the name suggests are quick and wily; and Boomers, great big fat zombies who retch bile all over you. Don't shoot these big fellas at point blank range, or they'll burst into green goo, obscuring your vision and in a particularly mean twist this goo attracts Loads and Loads of zombies, and remember you can't see them for all the muck spattered across your face! Noisy and horrible.

The co-op element has been done before, but it's really important in this game.

A great game providing that you have a decent Internet connection.
My only major complaint about the game is the match-making, for not being able to see your ping before you begin the game.
European players mixed with American hosted servers = Lag.
Players also occasionally leave in the middle of a game so you'll be stuck with AI controlled bots untill new players arrive.
Versus mode is fun but is abit repetitive seeing as how there's only 2 maps available to play on at the moment.
We'll have to wait and see what kind of mods will be available to improve the game as it is.
You may want to buy a mic if you don't already have one, having one will give you a much better gaming experiance since communicating by voice is a more practical way of communicating then typing when you're in the heat of a battle.

Imagine a world full of zombies; now imagine that world with only a few survivors and you managed to end up being one of these fortunate beings now destined to fight off the hordes. Got that image securely stuck in your mind? Great... that is Left 4 Dead's basic structure; however that view completely fails to capture the adrenaline rush which you receive as you advance through the campaign mowing you way through the masses of recently deceased. The sight of seeing hundreds of bodies falling at your feet as you do your best to keep yourself and your companions alive long enough to be taken to safety is certainly an exciting prospect which you look forward to at the start of each mission.

The game itself is a mostly online multiplayer game which encourages team work as you keep each other out of harms and rescuing them from certain death which is inflicted by the different types of enemy you face. You can play it offline too which is a nice touch for those without internet access (albeit you still need to use steam to install it) but to really achieve the full experience it is best to access online. The only limiting factor is the small number of campaign missions which is a shame as the current ones are brilliant fun. It's not all doom and gloom, you soon forget the repetition of levels when you move onto the "versus" mode where you partake in a manic fight for survival as you not only play against AI undead but other players too!

As a game made by Value, we have grown to expect flawless game play and excitement throughout and they have certainly managed to capture this in their newest shooter which captures the spirit of a zombie apocalypse perfectly.

You only have to watch the intro to this game to understand what a masterpiece it is. The game mechanics accurately reflect everything that the intro movie shows, from hanging off buildings and having to be rescueed by your friends, to setting off car alarms and drawing hordes of zombies. Tanks to constricting smokers, boomers and hunters, hordes and just single enemies hiding in cupboards that you don't see until they've knocked you down and eaten your ears - this game is great fun.

The difficulties scale so well, easy I can't vouch for, but normal is a good introduction to the game, and advanced is where the first day's playtime will be spent, but the real meat of the game is in expert difficulty. You cannot get by on expert without your team. The final campaign; Blood Harvest, will take you a good few attempts even with the most experienced team, and the soon-to-be-released DLC (free from Valve!) can only improve this game.

I have already recommended this game to three other people, they are all playing right now and loving it - I can honestly say I haven't played a better online game, a better first person shooter or a better team/first person strategy game.

My advice to anyone would be to buy this now, support the community and get yourself good enough to play expert, there aren't enough good players out there yet!

Oh and CROUCH! I cannot stress the importance of crouching enough!

PS. Please don't run off in front with the shotgun, strafing side to side standing up. Seriously, you will be shot by your friends/smokered/stumble over a witch, and it will be your own fault!
