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.

Key Features:

  • 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

  • Powered by Source and Steam

Reviews for Left 4 Dead

Really great

Good game! Has my stamp of approval for awesome zombie shooters! Lots of fun alone or with friends. For it's current price, you can't beat it. Its one of the best zombie fps games you can play as well as one of the best co-op games you can own, so don't hesitate because of its age, it's graphics are very good considering and it has full controller support too. You won't regret it if your into zombie fps!


I'm giving this a positive because it began such a great series but if you are going to buy this one buy L4D2 as well because this game is just not as polished, there are many issues with bot AI as well as issues with random intense frame drops after restarting a chapter. The game is also far more difficult due to a lack of melee weapons, but that could also be one of the draws of the game as it isn't as easy as L4D2 but also is a little easier due to not having to deal with Charger's, Spitter's or Jockey's

Best game on its era

This game is awesome, it really helps me remove my stress away. Killing some zombies will make you more comfortable(for me). Got a co-op and versus mode that you can play with your friends that you will surely enjoy!

Fight the Infection

This is not your typical zombie game where you defend a small area against the undead, you go out and take the fight to them. This game gets infinitely better with friends as it is scary to go alone but also fun and action packed with objectives to make the game even harder for your team of four. Recommend buying the game to anyone who loves zombie games.

An okay zombie game

L4D gets a lot of credit for being one of the first high profile zombie games. It's okay. It's pretty linear and the scenarios are rather short. It's somewhat more fun when you play with friends, but the game lacks depth and substance. With how many amazing zombie/survival simulators there are these days, I really see no reason why anybody would play L4D or L4D2 now. It was decent for its time, but L4D has not aged well and is a game you can easily pass on.
