Game description


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

A perfect example of co-op and fun


Left 4 Dead came as a surprise when it was first released, for some, it was just another zombie game, but L4D became a thing with it's unique style of co-op gameplay and funny/crazy moments within the game. You can never be bored playing this game, especially with your friends, this, for whoever reads this, is the definition of co-op mode. Recommended.

Great multiplayer fun.


A game that can not be disliked if you are a fan of cooperative games. It does not get boring even after hundreds of hours. Greatly designed heroes, amazing voice acting, and music (which is quite rare but it's great), generally I really like the whole sound layer of the game, not to mention the gameplay of course. Definitely one of the better horror band survival games I've had the chance to play.



Left 4 Dead is a great game. You play as one of a group of four survivors who have to make their way through a city full of zombies to an extraction point. The group of survivors have to battle hordes of zombies as well as several types of mutants. You can play the game with the other three characters provided by the game, or - by far the better option - you can play it with three friends. I spent many hours playing with friends, using co-operative tactics to fight the zombies (especially working hard to avoid friendly fire on the advanced setting). It's a great co-op game. I loved Left 4 Dead when it first came out - although I must admit that I played it so much that I got a bit sick of it in the end (I played L4D and L4D2 for 400 hours, combined). Still, that being said, getting 400 hours worth of entertainment from two games is pretty good going. Left 4 Dead is well worth buying. I highly recommend it.

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
