About This Game

From Valve (the creators of Counter-Strike, Half-Life and more) comes Left 4 Dead, a co-op action horror game for the PC and Xbox 360 that casts up to four players in an epic struggle for survival against swarming zombie hordes and terrifying mutant monsters.
Set in the immediate aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, L4D's survival co-op mode lets you blast a path through the infected in four unique “movies,” guiding your survivors across the rooftops of an abandoned metropolis, through rural ghost towns and pitch-black forests in your quest to escape a devastated Ground Zero crawling with infected enemies. Each "movie" is comprised of five large maps, and can be played by one to four human players, with an emphasis on team-based strategy and objectives.
New technology dubbed "the AI Director" is used to generate a unique gameplay experience every time you play. The Director tailors the frequency and ferocity of the zombie attacks to your performance, putting you in the middle of a fast-paced, but not overwhelming, Hollywood horror movie.
  • Addictive single player, co-op, and multiplayer action gameplay from the makers of Counter-Strike and Half-Life
  • Versus Mode lets you compete four-on-four with friends, playing as a human trying to get rescued, or as a zombie boss monster that will stop at nothing to destroy them.
  • See how long you and your friends can hold out against the infected horde in the new Survival Mode
  • An advanced AI director dynamically creates intense and unique experiences every time the game is played
  • 20 maps, 10 weapons and unlimited possibilities in four sprawling "movies"
  • Matchmaking, stats, rankings, and awards system drive collaborative play
  • Designer's Commentary allows gamers to go "behind the scenes" of the game
  • Powered by Source and Steam

THE SACRIFICE

"The Sacrifice” is the new add-on for Left 4 Dead.

"The Sacrifice" is the prequel to "The Passing," and takes place from the L4D Survivors' perspective as they make their way South. In addition to advancing the story, "The Sacrifice" introduces a new style finale featuring "Sacrificial Gameplay" where players get to decide who will give their life so the others may live.

In The Sacrifice for Left 4 Dead owners receive "The Sacrifice" campaign playable in Campaign, Versus, and Survival modes.

Amazing game, though don't buy it other than for nostalgic purposes, since all of this game's content is available in this game's sequel for free.

Left 4 Dead is a 4-Player Co-op Survival game made by Valve. The game consists of a singleplayer/multiplayer campaign, Versus mode where you play as a zombie, and survival mode where you survive for as long as you can.

Pros+
Very Entertaining
Teaches Teamwork
Good Gameplay
Likeable Characters
Fun Campaigns


Cons-
Graphic Bugs
Limited Weapons
Almost All Zombie Types Are Pretty Generic Except For The Hunter And The Witch
Almost No New Survival Maps
No Mod Support


Overall
The Game Is Good But I Personally Don't Think Its Worth 20 Dollars More Like 15 Dollars

I Give This Game A 8/10

I bought this thinking l4d and l4d2 were totally different games, I didn't think L4d2 would have the first l4d included....go buy l4d2 instead of this ♥♥♥♥. Even worse, I bought this for 29.99 even though it goes 4.99 on sales. fml

Still great game tho.

Why did I buy this game? Why did I buy it knowing that it was an incomplete game, knowing that Left 4 Dead 2 is everything this game is, plus more?

I'll tell you, I got it for one reason. Because I want to see my own ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ legs! And that's worth all the money in the world!

Even Tho That I Play L4D2 More This Is A Great Achievement I Like This More Than Half-Life 2 Or 1

- Guns Are Pretty Nice
- Zombie Are Hard No Matter What Setting
Just Great In Total I Would Recommend It's To Other People. :)

The mother of Left 4 Dead 2. Without melee weapons, this game is all about teamwork with firearms.
While there is less kinds of special infected, less numbers of them drops ingame, making the game pace slower, which is quite good for me.
However , the special infected bots are also more stealthy and , yes , stupid than L4D2. It is harder to spot them, but as you catch them in your vision , they can be defeated without much sacrifices.
One more thing, there is no more official servers which hosts online lobbies of this, as L4D2 became the majority of Zombie slayin' in Source engine. Only recommended if your friends already got / going to get this game, so that you or your friends can host a local lobby and play together.

But the game is good though. Mostly modded servers. Get it while it's on sale. The regular price is too much IMO because the game is older.

Left 4 Dead is about 4 survivers in a zombye world

Bill- Your Grandpa who you want to hear about his back in Nam stories.
Zoey- That college student you want to bang.
Louis- He likes his pills.
Francis- A badass biker dude that hates everything and everyone except for you, in reality he is a giant marshmellow.

(both immune)

At first woure leaving your apartment in philly, and must travel threw the subway and sewers to make it to safty in the hospital BUT EVERYONE IS DEAD. So you excapt on a chopper but your pilot is infected so you crash next to a town. Thier you most find another way to get out and you stumble a heavy armer custome vheicle (proubly expired from Dawn of theDead). You later reach Riverside for safty. Due to the pathway blocked on the abandoned highway, the Survivors follow the drainage system of Riverside, to a church with a crazy ♥♥♥ priest who tries to kills you before he turns. When you get to town everyone is dead AGAIN so you most get out on your magical boat. But you went to another infected city like bunch of dumbass where you see a plane fly by so you most make it to the airport, so you travel on roofs like a assassin to the airport where you come up to a plane that needs fuel so you do what your told and you get out. Where you some how end up in the woodlands heading to a militery outpost, the Survivors follow the path to a trainyard, and through a repair warehouse. Following the railway lines, they move past a bridge, a train station, and finally to a Farmhouse Finale. With nobody in sight, the Survivors call via a radio to the military, and from there, wait for a armored personnel carrier to pick them up. and you get out. ANd you live happy in peace, WRONG all becouse you were immune the militery does terrible tessts on you and experiments and you turned. Francis became buff and turned to a tank, Bills smoking habit gave him long cancer and he grew a giant town and was called a smoker becouse he smoked, Zoey became a cry baby babe, and with Louis mad basketball skills he put on a hoodie and started jumping every where. But thier was another test subject who was super fat and started puking everywhere but were not going talk about him becouse he isnt important. The end <3
