Left 4 Dead. Talk about a game that valve really hit big time with but is more of a sleeper game the reason i say sleeper is not many know about it unless they watched E3 or get the game informer mags or others that you may read. The game play is fantastic and the graphics wont make you drop your jaw in amazement but for what the game is very well done. i have played this title for many of hours and still cant get enough of it whether you are playing single player with the AI or with 2,3, or 4 friends its a great multi player game. Some of the features it does offer are really cool like for instance if you get tired of just playing through the game single or with friends and want to be the zombie and rip apart the people struggling to get out alive you can with the online feature you can go up against 4 other people so a total of 8 people in a match 4 on each side and you either start off as the Survivors or the Infected Horde aka Zombie. While playing this multiplayer game you run throught the levels you have already played but as both and the object for the survivors get to the end thats how you score points is by playing as survivors but if your a zombie you try to stop them at all cost and if you do so it switchs sides so if you were a zombie you are now a survivor and vice versa.
The controls however are a little confusing at first more so when it comes to trying to patch up your party members with a first aid kit or give them an item you accidently either try to heal yourself or pop the pain pills that you dont need besides that and getting confused on crouching the controls are easy to learn and fast to pick up. The zombies are fast and are in your face in a matter of seconds and a few that just tick you off are Hunters and Smokers. Hunters will pounce on you from a very far distance and tear at you until one of your teammates saves you and the other is the Smoker it has a very long tongue and can pull you a very long distance away. A few others around are the Witches and Tanks wont go into them to much so i dont run anything game play wise if your interested in getting this but Witchs you will hear them cry and its quite unsettling to hear a young girl cry more so because you know she can be any where and she can attack you without you knowing it and the Tanks only one thing i can think of for the tank Massive Fire Power.
All in all Left 4 Dead is for the people that like scary games and zombie killing its a buy hands down no questions but for the ones that are picky about the first person shooter they buy and play its a for sure renter and see if you like it at least give the game a chance if you like FPS Enjoy fighting for your life when you are knee deep in Zombies
