5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy sequel, 4 April 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Left 4 Dead 2 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I have to admit that when I first heard about Left 4 Dead 2 I was a bit sceptical about it. I already played the first part of the game and I really liked it. But when Valve came out with the sequel to the first part after such a short time I was wondering if it would be worth the money to get the second part as well because I couldn't imagine that the game would be a whole lot different than the first part.

And of course the concept of the game stayed the same. And the concept isn't really complex: After a disease the population has turned into zombies. And you and 3 other survivors who are immune have to make your way through all kind of scenarios. All the special infected you know from the first part are also in the new game.

In case you haven't played the first part: There are zombies with special abilities that will require the whoel team to work together in order to survive. One Example would be the Boomers who can vomid on you which causes temporary blindness and attracts other infected. Another would be the Hunters that can leap long distances, jump on you and throw you to the ground. Again there are also the Smokers who can contrict survivors witht their tongue and pull the long distances. Tanks are incredibly strong infected who can throw objects around and take massive amounts of damage before going down. And there are also Witches who are just sitting around and are pretty harmless until they are disturbed by loud noises, lights or being shot at.

New to the game are: Spitters who can spit acid at you. Jockeys who can jump on survivors and take control over you. Chargers who can run extremely fast and knock down the entire team. They also can pin survivors and slam them into a wall. New are also wandering witches who are pretty much the same as the witches in the first part but as you might have guessed, they are wandering around which sometimes makes it difficult to distinguish them from normal infected which greatly increases the chances of disturbing them.

There are also a whole lot new weapons and tools you can use which I don't want to discuss in detail here. I will just give a couple examples on what will expect you: Defibrillators to revive dead teammates. Adrenaline shots let you perform many things faster. Incendary and explosive ammo. Boomer Bile Bombs. And of course the new melee weapons like the chainsaw or axe.

To sum it up. Left 4 Dead 2 is a worthy sequel to the first part and is great fun, especially when played online.
