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 immediate aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, L4D's survival co-op mode lets you blast a path through the infected in four unique “movies,” guiding your survivors across the rooftops of an abandoned metropolis, through rural ghost towns and pitch-black forests in your quest to escape a devastated Ground Zero crawling with infected enemies. Each "movie" is comprised of five large maps, and can be played by one to four human players, with an emphasis on team-based strategy and objectives.
New technology dubbed "the AI Director" is used to generate a unique gameplay experience every time you play. The Director tailors the frequency and ferocity of the zombie attacks to your performance, putting you in the middle of a fast-paced, but not overwhelming, Hollywood horror movie.
Addictive single player, co-op, and multiplayer action gameplay from the makers of Counter-Strike and Half-Life
Versus Mode lets you compete four-on-four with friends, playing as a human trying to get rescued, or as a zombie boss monster that will stop at nothing to destroy them.
See how long you and your friends can hold out against the infected horde in the new Survival Mode
An advanced AI director dynamically creates intense and unique experiences every time the game is played
20 maps, 10 weapons and unlimited possibilities in four sprawling "movies"
Matchmaking, stats, rankings, and awards system drive collaborative play
Designer's Commentary allows gamers to go "behind the scenes" of the game

This is a fun, easy to get into zombie shooter survival-action game that anyone can just pick up and play at anytime, though that's not to say it's easy - especially on higher difficulties; it takes a long time to master all of the techniques available to both the survivors and the infected (in versus mode). Though the games is designed to be simple - there is a limited selection of weapons and items, and for each campaign the goal is generally the same, get through the levels with as little damage as possible and survive the finale -, the need for strategy, organizing and working as a team to dispatch hundreds of infected and survive the assaults of the special infected is what provides the unique and engaging survival experience. I recommend this gem to anyone that doesn't get bored too easily or is patient enough to strategize and respect his comrades ideas. You'll be investing hundreds of hours shooting zombies and planning with your friends how to survive the hordes or how to separate that pesky survivor team, and at the end of the day you'll not regret a thing.
Left 4 Dead is an awesome game, a must have when it was released during some years, but right now you should go for its sequel as it is technically the same game featuring lots of new things and improved mechanics. Left 4 Dead 2 has most of the content from this game, so, you won't miss anything. The original was incredibly good, with those randomized levels where creatures spawn in different spots. Four charismatic survivors (I still love them way more than the characters in Left 4 Dead 2) played by you and your friends against waves of zombies. You better move fast and aim carefully. Anyone can play Left 4 Dead as it is an easy to play game, but just a few will master every technique since there are lots of strategies available for the players. The more you play the better you are, and believe me, you will play it a lot.
First of all, while this game do have Single-player this is a primarily a Multiplayer focused so I will review it based only on that. Left 4 Dead is one of the greatest Co-op shooter games out there. 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. L4D features good graphics, good AI and a great behind the scenes AI "Director" which will change the gameplay according to your choices, making each playthrough slightly different. However, L4D2 has improved on that and adds additional features such as Workshop for mods and maps. Therefore it is the clear choice between the two. Still a good party game, especially if you've already played 2 and want something similar.
Very fun fast paced co-op survival game. Fight your way through different stages of each level until you reach the last point where you have to defend yourself from waves of attacking infected until your rescue arrives. The game has a limited amount of weapons including shotguns, rifles, and pistols, and sniper rifles. Most come in a weaker form and later on in the level more powerful versions of the guns can be found with higher rate of fire or higher ammo capacity. You can also find and make use of pain pills, medkits, pipe bombs that emit a sound that attract the infected, and molotov cocktails which can set fire to a wide area blocking paths for the infected. Multiplayer is fun to play with four people playing as the survivors and four players taking the roll of the special infected. Trying to work with your team to separate and kill the survivors makes for great matches, and being able to travel around the map as an infected is interesting in itself. The allied AI is completely useless when it comes to identifying threats, helping, or using items this makes playing alone both boring and extremely difficult unless playing on the easiest settings. If you can find some friends to play the game with this is definitely a game worth checking out.
Everyone knows left4dead is one of the most famous zombie fps in the market, but this time i suggest you to buy the sequel of it: left4dead2, because all the maps,guns, the characters and special zombies of it are included in l4d2,you can buy this to know how l4d was before the release of the new game.
