Top 50 Title:
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
New survivors. New Story. New dialogue.
Five expansive campaigns for co-operative, Versus and Survival game modes.
An all new multiplayer mode.
Uncommon common infected. Each of the five new campaigns contains at least one new uncommon common zombies which are exclusive to that campaign.
AI Director 2.0: Advanced technology dubbed The AI Director drove L4D's unique gameplay – customizing enemy population, effects, and music, based upon the players’ performance. L4D 2 features The AI Director 2.0 which expands the Director’s ability to customize level layout, world objects, weather, and lighting to reflect different times of day.

Better than the originalThe1337N00Bx | July 21, 2015 | See all The1337N00Bx's reviews »
The addition of melee weapons was a great feature and added a lot to the game in my opinion. They also added new zombies to the game, adding even more to the experience. Like the original, it is way more fun to play with friends. Plus there are quite a few mods for this game that add even more to the fun of the game. I would recommend this game if you're looking for a mindlessly fun game to play with friends.
Great Shooter, Good Fun With Friendselyohinad | July 21, 2015 | See all elyohinad's reviews »
I got this game, kind of a bit scared, not going to lie, because I didn't typically play games with zombies and stuff. I really never do usually. But a group of friends wanted to play this so I picked it up, downloaded it, and now I even play it by myself. It is a great game. The weapons are cool, the characters have humor, and actual souls, and the zombies are pretty good looking. The only downside (to me) is it's more a game for a group, you really shouldn't play alone all too much, because this game is just much more fun with people. Because of it's lacking with that, it loses points.
Highly RECOMMENDED co-op !!sai_mj | July 11, 2015 | See all sai_mj's reviews »
L4D2..second game in the series is an awesome game. These words are not enough to describe it. After trying out l4d1, me and my friends decided to buy this game to try out co-op. So we started playing and we never left it till now lol. This gameplay is very optimised and smooth. The graphics are splendid with scary and stunning sounds. Coming to the gameplay, it mainly features on zombie apocalypse..i mean who doesn't like apocalypse in these days? I bet everyone do. So the developers used that as main center and nailed the game with great multiplayer. You carry on killing zombies, a wide range of zombies lol. My favorites include smoker who makes scary sounds and grabs you by means of his tongue. Later the witch...oh man..go near her and your'e dead. This game attracts you like you go on downloading new maps and finish them and again download a new one !! Finally one point which tells it's strength is that it is currently my top playing game on steam even though it released a couple of years before !! ONE LOVE to this game :))

I must say, this is the best game to play if you have friends, there's a lot of game ode on this game which might perfectly fit for you, like Versus or Mutant, if you like zombies movie and you like to play First Person Shooter with your friends, this game is perfectly for you.
One of my most favorite co-op experiences in the last decade.bibboorton | July 10, 2015 | See all bibboorton's reviews »
I will never forget just itching to play with my friends and shoot some zombies after school. I will never forget saving their skins from a witch or laughing as they get jockeyed off to somewhere we can't reach them. I will never forget playing as the zombies and wiping the enemy team of survivors out with a hunter/spitter combo, or rampaging as the tank. This is one of the best multiplayer games I've ever played, and you're doing yourself a disservice by not getting this. Oh, did I mention this game now has Steam Workshop support? Have Nicolas Cage's face as your flashlight. Modify Zoey and turn her into Juliet from Lollipop Chainsaw. Endless fun.
