LEFT 4 DEAD and LEFT 4 DEAD2 official thread!

Decided id start my own thread on them. Both games are absolutely amazing, i just found out that GAMESTOP is still selling left4dead2 for $40 until tomorrow. I would seriously recommend you pick it up! Most people were skeptical, but it really truly is a huge improvement over L4D. It has 3x's the weapons, 4 new characters, more campaigns than the original, and 2 new game types. 2 new special infected as well as "uncommon infected" with special attributes. It really is a whole lot more than just new DLC.

Re: LEFT 4 DEAD and LEFT 4 DEAD2 official thread!

from what i read....l4d was just an experiment....to see what they could do and how well it would go over...and that l4d2 is the TRUE game how it was meant to be when the creators first started working on it

From what Ive heard l4d2 is basically an overglorified expansion pack.

But I like Rex's idea better

FFAARR from it IMO.

in l4d 1 the main strategy was to just get in a corner with everyone and slap. in left4dead2 this strategy wont work at all. Dispite it still looking kind of like the same game there are many, many, many significant changes/upgrades.


Improved graphics
4 new characters
5 new campaigns.
- Each campaign is longer
- Each campaign is harger
- Each campaign has a special "event" which affects the gameplay
- Each campaign has a unique "uncommon infected" which have special attributes

3 New special infected
5 New "uncommon" infected with special attributes
2 New game types
More zombies in each horde
Wandering witches
New Melee weapons
3x's the weapons
New items such as AED and boomer bile


and much more that i cant even remember to mention right now. the demo does it no justice. You cant imagine how awesome it is to run through a field and it suddenly starts raining, and the zombies are enraged by it so endless hordes come at you with increased speed and strength when you can barely see them through the thick downpour.

The first one was fun, but a little too dumb. I really don't like games you can beat in about 2-3 hours.

?? the only way you can beat either game in 1-2 hours is if you play in medium or easy.

if you played the original on expert, even with a good team youd spend 3-5 hours per campaign.

the 2nd one though is significantly longer.
