This pack contains:
Left 4 Dead
Left 4 Dead 2
From Valve (the creators of Counter-Strike, Half-Life and more) comes Left 4 Dead, a co-op action horror game for the PC and Xbox 360 that casts up to four players in an epic struggle for survival against swarming zombie hordes and terrifying mutant monsters.
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 game was a load of fun to play. you can play as a human in the campaign coop or as a zombie. The co-op is phenomenal and very few games now offer a competent bot AI. That being said, replaying the same maps over and over gets quite boring. It certainly has replay value but would like to see new updates in maps.
This is hands down the best way to get into the l4d experience (except the Valve complete pack, for those who've been living up under a rock and don't have most of their games). Both games have excellent gameplay based around teamwork (with l4d2 standing out by having a lot more weapons, items, game modes and features, while l4d1 generally keeping things simple, but effective and engaging), great ambience (particularly, l4d1) and are well-designed regarding the co-op department. The graphical and narrative aspects are not necessairly the games' strong points - one could see the quality of the gameplay would be diminished otherwise, seeing as the point of the l4d universe isn't to convey a groundbreaking plot, but to deliver a solid action-survival experience; also, considering the great number of 'fodder' zombies/infected that the survivors have to face as well as the fact that most areas present need to look gloomy, abandoned or greatly damaged, it's no wonder the developers didn't focus on the visuals as much). Both games come with 4-6 levels in the single-player and co-op campaigns (they are essentially the same thing, the only difference being the number of players) as well as 2-3 dlc levels, a versus mode (the survivor team vs the infected team) and a survival mode (where survivors try to hold out for as long as possible) for those same levels, with l4d2 introducing a scavenge mode (same as versus, but with the added objective of collecting a certain number of gas cans under a time limit) and realism modes (harder versions of the campaigns and versus mode) as well as numerous mutations (interesting variations of the normal levels), not to mention the plethora of workshop items and addons. There really aren't any reasons for a FPS or survival-horror fan to not have these games in their collection (many say only l4d2 matters, but I recommend both games), especially considering they are part of the valve collection. I definetly recommend buying this bundle as soon as possible without a second thought.
First of all, while these games do have Single-player this is a primarily a Multiplayer focused so I will review it based only on that. Left 4 Dead series is one of the greatest Co-op shooter games out there. Both games are set in a post zombie-apocalypse world Where you and your friends play a group of 4 survivors who must fight together against the Zombie horde in order to reach the extraction site and be rescued. Both games have good graphics, great AI and most importantly a behind the scenes AI "Director" which will change the gameplay according to your choices, making each playthrough slightly different. A must have party-game
Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 are such good games in this bundle,the first one lets you play through all the zombie campaign with your friends and kill as many zombies you find in your way and after beating it,you can install and play the second one, with the campaigns from the first game, more infected,more guns and a workshop if you get tired from the default campaign games,buy this pack and tell your friends to do the same, have fun!
I never saw a reason to play L4D1 if you already have the sequel, but if you want to do that, you will save some money with this bundle. Both games are really good in coop. I love the theme of the 2nd game and it actually feels fun to play; you don't get bored in long sessions easily.
