What is it?
Left 4 Dead 2 is a first person shooter with the intention of giving the player the experience of living out one of the many zombie horror survival movies that are all too common in the world. There’s lots of different campaigns to play through at a difficulty of your choosing, and should you get tired of these, you can either choose to download more or enter the survival mode which is terrific fun. In survival mode you’re up against increasing amounts of zombies and special infected while you hold up in a certain location with limited supplies. I ahve yet to mention the best part of the game as well – Versus Mode. This mode lets you play as both the survivors and the special infected, so if you ever wanted to vomit all over a bunch of people to call a horde of zombies, this is the mode for you.
Steam workshop gives lots of modification possibilities.
Brilliantly designed campaigns.
Survival mode is a nice change of pace.
Characters are well crafted.
Versus mode is fantastic.
Servers are a little flaky.
Left 4 Dead 2 is a fantastic game. Even today, six and a half years after it was originally released, it’s still really fun to play through and shoot zombies up. It’s a brilliantly designed game with engaging and challenging levels and great characters to play with. The addition of the original levels is an excellent touch and gives you plenty of things to do. It’s a game that everyone should own.
