Left 4 Dead
I’d seen ads for Left 4 Dead a while ago and figured it was just another Zombie game. Then a friend at work recommended the demo. I went and got it the last day the demo was available. After an hour or so of downloading, Sean and I were deep inside a subway station fighting for our lives! Just from the two or three levels you were able to play on the demo i was hooked! So I went and bought the game yesterday, after i got off work. I spent the rest of the evening fighting my way through hordes of zombies with 3 other people online. I have to say, it’s the most fun i’ve had in a co-op game before. The AI director really adds to the whole feeling of intensity by changing where the zombies come from and where things drop. So far i’ve only played through the first 4 levels ending with the final battle on the rooftop of a hospital where we kept dying. That’s when I called it a night, since it was creeping in on midnight.
The game really excels at scaring the crap out of you. You can hear the zombies as they gather in a room close by, but you don’t know which one. You look for them and you can’t seem to find them. Then all of a sudden they burst through a door or wall or the ceiling and swarm you! I’d highly recommend the game to anyone! [LGNBM]Krandor is my steam tag. Add me up! 🙂
