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.

Key Features:

  • 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.

A pretty fun coop game


Do you have a game, or movie you never tried, because it's so popular. I was like this with this one. Way too popular. Not really sure why i tried it, i might have gotten it as a present or something. Anyway, is so fun, you wouldn't believe. Firstly, for a zombie game, there is a huge variety in enemies. You need to think on your feet if you want to live, and also, help out your team, because while it is allegedly possible, to survive on your own, i never managed to do it. There are lots of weapons, even more then in the first game allegedly, which i never tried. The graphic is the usual high end Valve stuff. It looks rather well, while runs smoothly on a weaker machine. really important for a multiplayer game. The AI is also very good. The zombies give you a really hard time, in every game. Highly recommended.

A Classic of Valve


Left 4 Dead 2 was one of the games that gave the recognition to Valve and is the truth is a very, very good game not to say that it is my favorite game of zombies, I play it with friends by preference and I think it is more fun also you put mods and we put to bobear is relaxing xD you put to kill zombies advances in the map and such simply incredible, this game has a campaign mode but the most characteristic is that you can add as many mods you want, as many maps you want no doubt a game with lots of variety but I assure you spend hours playing and playing without boring as it happens to me. Recommended.

L4D1 with different characters and different maps


This is not a radical evolution of the Left 4 Dead franchise. The sequel, while competent, is so safe and so uninspiring only the most devote Valve fans will praise this game. There isn't enough new content to really warrant this being a standalone game. It should have been an expansion to LFD1. The new multiplayer modes are forgettable, and the game only shines in local couch coop. If you weren't that impressed with the first game, I wouldn't recommend picking this one up. Especially at $19.99, you are better off waiting for a sale. My advice? There are far better and newer zombie games.

More of the same, but better


Left 4 Dead 2 is the sequel of the popular zombie co-op game: Left 4 Dead. This time, with a new group of survivors, you have to fight the same horde of zombies and mutants to save yourself and the group from turning one of them. The game feels the same as the previous one with better graphics, smooth controls and better AI. The strong point of this is the Steam Workshop, where you can download and try fan-made maps and levels created by the community of Left 4 Dead, and even contribute your own creations. Recommended.

Killing Zombies for the Whole Gang


Left 4 Dead 2 builds on what Left 4 Dead originally offered, bringing a fast-paced zombie killing experience with available online coop. The amount of campaigns to play and the difficulty encourages replayability. This is increased further by The Director, a game system that dynamically gives the players moments of relief and tension as it sends hordes of zombies to the players' locations at key moments of the campaigns. I have yet to fully jump into online matchmaking but if it is anything at all like the original multiplayer experience from the first installment I know I will enjoy it. Final verdict: If you are looking to purchase a game to play with friends that offers continuously action-packed experiences from start to finish, this is the perfect buy!
