Left 4 Dead (Xbox 360)
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.

This game is up there with the most played shooters / games on Xbox Live at the moment just ranking under Call of Duty 5 ,Gears of War 2, Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4, in number of players online daily.
This shooter focuses heavily on teamwork and you'll need it if you want to survive , you just can't go rambo solo on this game and expect to be a one man army, because it ain't going to happen without your friends to bail you out.
You could play single player with computer AIs as your allies but it just isn't as fun.
This game has to be played online to be truly appreciated . None of the shooters mentioned above, come close to the appreciation of looking out for team mates as this game emphasises.
Online it's a 4 vs 4 team battle , although that description in itself doesn't clearly describe it.
Basically it's humans/ survivors vs Zombies / Infected.
It's guns and caution vs stealth and cunning really.
Humans have weapons ( including firearms and explosives ) , health kits , lots of health and can revive/heal each other ( If given the chance and the right equipment.
Zombies have low health , respawning , special abilities which incapacitate a human victim ( Which then he/she NEEDS the help of a team mate to escape from them ) and an army of support zombies which deal light damage to the humans , although can't truly be controlled.
The humans goal is to travel from point A to point B. ( Represented by Zombie Proof Safe Rooms )
The zombies goal is to kill all of them before they reach the target destination.Read more ›
This game is seriously good. Its difficult to actually put a finger on 'why' it's so good. Its such a simple game - 4 players, kill lots of zombies end of story, and with only 4 levels (5 maps per level) you would think it would have a relatively short shelflife, but it's so much more than a sum of its individual parts.
Few games have this affect - the 'just one more go' feeling that keeps you up until 3am, bleary eyed, realising you still have to get up for work the next day, but 'just gotta survive one more wave of zombies' is far more important...
This is what good games are all about - getting the gameplay 'just right', getting the physics 'just right' and overall hitting the sweetspot of 'fun' vs 'difficulty'..... Why spend a huge amount of time developing plotlines, character building etc. the point of games is to play them - not spend half your time watching cut scenes trying to piece together scraps of gameplay.
Part of the fun of being on XBLive is the community, and this game actually 'promotes' team spirit. You find very quickly that if the players joining your games don't have a mic, or don't speak they get booted quickly. I've added more friends to my friends list in the last month of playing this game than in the previous year - and people who it's fun to play with and chat to. You simply cannot play this game unless all 4 players co-operate - and I know of no other game on the market that has this.Read more ›
My only complaint if there is any is that you can only play two of the campaigns in versus mode - I would have liked to play them all :(
