Set in the zombie apocalypse, Left 4 Dead 2 (L4D2) is the highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning Left 4 Dead, the #1 co-op game of 2008.
This co-operative action horror FPS takes you and your friends through the cities, swamps and cemeteries of the Deep South, from Savannah to New Orleans across five expansive campaigns. You'll play as one of four new survivors armed with a wide and devastating array of classic and upgraded weapons. In addition to firearms, you'll also get a chance to take out some aggression on infected with a variety of carnage-creating melee weapons, from chainsaws to axes and even the deadly frying pan.
You'll be putting these weapons to the test against (or playing as in Versus) three horrific and formidable new Special Infected. You'll also encounter five new uncommon common infected, including the terrifying Mudmen.
Helping to take L4D's frantic, action-packed gameplay to the next level is AI Director 2.0. This improved Director has the ability to procedurally change the weather you'll fight through and the pathways you'll take, in addition to tailoring the enemy population, effects, and sounds to match your performance. L4D2 promises a satisfying and uniquely challenging experience every time the game is played, custom-fitted to your style of play.
Next generation co-op action gaming from the makers of Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress and Counter-Strike.
Over 20 new weapons & items headlined by over 10 melee weapons – axe, chainsaw, frying pan, baseball bat – allow you to get up close with the zombies

All hope is lost... You and three others have found their way onto a roof to get into the helicopter that will take you to the safe zone, but it didn't stop... It kept going, leaving you and your team behind with the incoming hordes of sprinting zombies... But cheer up! There's an amazing arsenal of weapons scattered throughout the city! Grab an UZI, a D-Eagle, or perhaps you are a katana person... If you start getting bored at the zombies for some weird disturbing reason... then look behind you... 'Cause there will be a charger there!
Oh and hm... don't follow the cries...
How to die with a frying pan in your handmidgetjacks | Oct. 4, 2014 | See all midgetjacks's reviews »
Okay, Left 4 Dead, co-op zombie survivor game. Really fun, insane, and tense. But you know what was missing? Frying pans. L4D2 understood that and fixed it. Sure, you can also use a sword, buy why would you when the superior frying pan is right there.
I'm going to be honest, I don't think I've seen the end of any of the campaigns in this one. That's probably due to the fact that my friends and I would choose melee over any other weapon. And then charge forward, always swinging, never stopping. And it is fun, like a lot of fun. Sure, we never win, but it really shows when you can have fun losing. Like, repeatedly.
At this point, this is the one to get over the first game. I did like the first a bit more, but that's probably because I have stronger memories of the levels since we weren't charging as fast as the 'W' key would let us.
Great game to play with friendsAmehmo | Sept. 15, 2014 | See all Amehmo's reviews »
Ah, the source engine manages to present another amazing game...no surprise there i guess. I managed to pick a 4 pack of Left 4 Dead 2 (L4D2) during one of the summer sales. I gifted 3 copies to my friends and that was how we began playing this game. L4D2 is a game that is extremely fun to play with your friends or even on your own. Unlike some other game you are not limited to a fixed amount of game time, its just about having fun and if that is what you are looking for then this game is what you should get. The play style never gets old, in other words you will be more than happy to play this game again and again. The graphics are decent enough for you realize the mayhem as you grind your way through a horde of zombies with your chainsaw...or a frying pan if you get unlucky. If i had to, after playing this game i would be more than happy to pay its full price and potentially more, i can guarantee you will enjoy this if zombies and fps are your thing.

Going through hordes of zombies in each area you go, L4D2 is an amazing game, with a great value in the multiplayer campaign. While the overall mission is to stay alive, you and your friends may find a way to screw each other just a little bit while actually trying to survive. It's always tons of fun, even if you play it alone. With a great variety of weapons, and a lot of modding capabilities, this is a game ever zombie lover should have.
