Top 50 Title:


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

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!


Left 4 Dead is one of the better zombie shooters. It is a lot more fun to play with friends, but you can also run it in single player mode with bots. The bots cover you quite good, but they are not very clever. All levels are very linear. The waves of zombies are more or less random ensuring replayability. After a couple of levels there is a end fight at the end of a level. These fights are usually much more intense than the rest of the levels. It gives you some sense of achievement after all, though.

Left 4 Dead

Great game! Just needed to say that. This game is about escaping various buildings and areas from the hordes of Zombies lurking in the shadows and city streets. You are in a team of 4 with either 3 bots or 3 online players. As you progress the game gets more difficult as the enemies get tougher and increase in number. If you have the money and time, get this!
