Mindless B-movie style slugfest,
This review is from: Left 4 Dead (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
This game is lots of fun when playing with others, single player it is rather boring, frustrating and tiresome. Playing with the computer AI doesn't provide anything close to the pleasure of multi-player. Playing even with just one other player brings this game to life, at its best it is a lot of fun and i'm often left in stitches of laughter as I am ravaged by a hoard of viscous zombies. There is fantastic emphasis on teamwork as you are much better sticking together,if you branch out you will find yourself heavily outnumbered, which can be fun, but not helpful to the team. You will often be crying for help, in need of being revived, lifted off a ledge or saved from being clawed to death by the living dead. It is pretty repetitive, mindless and is like an interactive b-movie, it hasn't an ounce of originality and as a single player game is falls very short. There is however a lot of fun to be had playing with friends with split screen or on X-box live. I would definitely recommend this game if you have online capabilities or friends at hand to join in, other wise there are many other single player games which would be a better choice.
