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.
Another great bundle, for a great price. When i think about zombie games, i always expect, to have an easy times, since...how hard can it be, to kill a walking, stumbling corpse with assault rifles right? Yeah... Well, here I was even more painfully wrong then other times. For one thing, the infected can run better, then me in real life. Their numbers are also considerable, and the way they made the maps makes this game really challenging. To be honest, i don't like playing it with strangers. If you know your teammates, they are more likely to help you, plus if you actually like them, it makes the action even more exciting. Combined, i have easily played a month with these two, and i recommend them to anyone, who has 3 friends :)
Left 4 Dead is probably one of my favourite all time zombie games. The atmosphere is fantastic and the game is just all about killing. The co-op is a lot of fun and being able to play as a zombie makes the game just that much better. The gun choice is huge and allows for a lot of different builds and ways to kill zombies. You should buy this game if you're a fan of survival-horror games as it is one the best and a great classic (its not that old but its pretty old).
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
