Left 4 Dead is a landmark for ultimate survival horror games. Being powered by Steam the game play is great. The computer controlled characters are this games only drawback. If you are like me and do most of your gaming across XBOX Live then Left 4 Dead will supply you with countless hours of zombie killing. The graphics are wonderful and the high definition landscapes complement game play well.
The randomization of zombies, hordes, weapons, ammunition and health are something to brag about. You never know what to expect behind each door or corner. The monsters are completely random as well. For example, a Tank(highly deformed monster) comes rolling in and almost kills the team. As soon as everybody is healed up we take two steps and again another Tank. We died, but it was completely random and unexpected.
Anything less than a A is a bad rating for this game. The concept is there and it will only be time until more and more people join over Live. I have never seen so many people across my friends list playing the same game.
Prepare to be addicted.
