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.

Reviews for Left 4 Dead 2

Prepare to survive... and die.

Left 4 Dead 2 is one of the best FPS of the last years. A perfect mix between action, terror, gore and survival, this game will keep you awake waiting for the hordes and more deadly zombies such as the tank, the charger or the spitter. The music is also a key point of the game, because it will change depending of the action that's taking place. You will feel the tension of the moment and beware, because there's no rest in any level and you must be alert always. It's recommended to play L4D2 with friends or with random players online, but if you want to know some level and practice, you can do it offline. If you find this game with discount, don't doubt and buy it, you'll have a good time playing it and you'll really enjoy the experience. 10/10

Best Coop Zombies Game

Who never heard about L4D? L4D2 expands on everything the original brought to the table, improving and providing a better experience on all aspects. Even the campaigns from the first game were ported, to the rage of some (which I honestly don't understand). There is a lot of fun to be had with L4D2. The game features coop campaigns and versus mode (there are a lot more modes, but these two are the main ones). Versus mode is a blast, and I dare to say it could potentially become an esport if given enough attention. There is a small plot going on through all the campaigns, but let's be honest, who really cares. Left 4 Dead 2 is awesome. It brings back every good things the first had and more. There's also Steam Workshop integration, so it's really easy to shape the game to your liking. Totally recommended even if you don't have friends to play with, because the community is really nice and you can easily join a random online game.

The Best Zombie Game Hands Down

Left 4 Dead 2 keeps what made the previous installment great and makes it even better. This game includes several Campaigns that are all fun to play through with different casts of characters. It also includes other modes like Versus where it's four survivors vs four other players who play as unique special infected that are a blast to play as. You can also play other special modes that are a joy to play like Survival, Scavenge, Realism, and Mutation. The game has four play online co-op which is one of the best multiplayer experiences I have ever had, or you can go solo which is also fun and exciting. This is a must-own Steam game especially at it's normal $20 price point and it being on sale often.

Survive the Horde

Left 4 Dead 2 was created by valve and is a zombie survival games with many different mode. There are the different campaigns where you can play alone or with friends and battle zombies through Hotels, Rooftops, and Abandoned Carnivals. One other mode is the online Versus mode where four players control the survivors trying to make their way to the end of the stage while four other players become "special infected" and have special abilities which they have to use to stop the survivors dead in their tracks. There are a couple extra modes like Survival, Scavenge, and Realism. The game is more enjoyable to play friends but playing solo can be enjoyable especially with the built in mod support which can give you fan-made maps, weapons, survivors, and zombies. Left 4 Dead 2 is a blast with friends and is fun solo.

Those pesky survivors are at it again, this time with more redneck and op zombies

Left 4 Dead 2 improves upon most of the previous game's flaws while generally keeping its qualities. Even though the 'gameplay formula' is pretty much the same, the addition of many more weapons than before, items, uncommon infected and 3 new special infected as well as redesigned old ones, as well as all of the old maps from Left 4 Dead 1 and many game modes make the game feel very fresh and distinct from its predecessor. Obviously, the survivors are different this time, and though not as colorful as the original survivors, they make an interesting cast after you get to know them - perhaps with the exception of Rochelle (bonus points for the voice actor of Coach, which is Tyreese from the Walking Dead show). Also, the setting is pretty different from the gloomy vistas of the first game, taking place in the Southern USA during the day. While the several additions to this sequel can make it seem more complex and harder to get into, it's improved gameplay more than makes up for it. So go buy this whenever you get the chance and thank me for convincing you after a few hundreds hours of playing it.
