About This Game

Set in the zombie apocalypse, Left 4 Dead 2 (L4D2) is the highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning Left 4 Dead, the #1 co-op game of 2008.
This co-operative action horror FPS takes you and your friends through the cities, swamps and cemeteries of the Deep South, from Savannah to New Orleans across five expansive campaigns.
You'll play as one of four new survivors armed with a wide and devastating array of classic and upgraded weapons. In addition to firearms, you'll also get a chance to take out some aggression on infected with a variety of carnage-creating melee weapons, from chainsaws to axes and even the deadly frying pan.
You'll be putting these weapons to the test against (or playing as in Versus) three horrific and formidable new Special Infected. You'll also encounter five new “uncommon” common infected, including the terrifying Mudmen.
Helping to take L4D's frantic, action-packed gameplay to the next level is AI Director 2.0. This improved Director has the ability to procedurally change the weather you'll fight through and the pathways you'll take, in addition to tailoring the enemy population, effects, and sounds to match your performance. L4D2 promises a satisfying and uniquely challenging experience every time the game is played, custom-fitted to your style of play.
  • Next generation co-op action gaming from the makers of Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress and Counter-Strike.
  • Over 20 new weapons & items headlined by over 10 melee weapons – axe, chainsaw, frying pan, baseball bat – allow you to get up close with the zombies
  • New survivors. New Story. New dialogue.
  • Five expansive campaigns for co-operative, Versus and Survival game modes.
  • An all new multiplayer mode.
  • Uncommon common infected. Each of the five new campaigns contains at least one new “uncommon common” zombies which are exclusive to that campaign.
  • AI Director 2.0: Advanced technology dubbed “The AI Director” drove L4D's unique gameplay – customizing enemy population, effects, and music, based upon the players’ performance. L4D 2 features “The AI Director 2.0” which expands the Director’s ability to customize level layout, world objects, weather, and lighting to reflect different times of day.
  • Stats, rankings, and awards system drives collaborative play

Its the sequel to the great co-op game Left 4 Dead 1 !
Well,,, Here you have: Too many Gore! Melee Weapons! MOAR WEPS!!! Annoying but also dangerous Special Infected!
A boomer bile in a jar! Speedhack item! (Adrenaline!) Revive tool! (Defibrillator), Upgrades for you're weapons! (like lazer beams,Incendiary Ammo and the explosion ammo)
But the cons: Not good Atmosphere, Annoying Special Infected,The new weapons are actually the same just some minor changes,Broken Animation. Well that all i have to say! But i warn you! Dont Join Versus when You are new! Its a 100% chance that you get kicked! Well i recommend you to buy Both Left 4 Dead 1 and Left 4 Dead 2!

Great Game

Got this on sale and I really like the gameplay. Although the levels are repetitive, you gain different skills over time to fight the Infected. It was worth the $4 when it was on sale.

Some of the most fun coop experiences I've ever had were in this game. L4D2 is incredibly fun and has lots of cool mods and custom maps that will keep you playing for hours and hours. I was initially skeptical, but I soon learned that every playthrough of each campaign is always different. Even with some negative experiences, somehow I always want to come back for more. I highly recommend L4D2.

This is one of the best game ever. Plenty of fun with friends and a very enjoyable versus mode. The coop system is the best ever seen in the games history. The animations are incredibly fluid, some of the best I've seen so far in a game. The dialogues are great, the characters say a lot of different things and are never annoying or ripetitive. Definitely worth for buying. I'm not what you would call a "video game person", yet after playing this once, I've been obsessed with this game. Much better than the sequence (card game) and the infected characters are definitely worth the time ESPECIALLY THE SURVIVORS SINCE THEY'VE ADDED WORKSHOP , WHERE YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE THEIR CLOTHES THE GUNS GOD ITS EVERYTHING. Multiplayer! cooperative or competitive! Teamwork actually means something here. You can do more than just shoot guns. Controlling special abilitied Zombies is a unique experience. SCAVENGE MODE (OMG) You are not only feel like a member of your team, you need to cooperate every time and your team needs to coop back aswell or your brains will get eaten (kidding or then "you wont get any chance against the other team (if they know the game more than u do) , btw there's always TUTORIAL about scavenge so u can go ahead and see those. PLAYING WITH FRIENDS AND THE ONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO PLAY IT WILL possibly the best teamwork oriented game ever, certainly the best with a still thriving community.

Once you get past the bugs, broken animations and horrible community, then it's a fun game to play.

Awesome FPS solo and co-op zombie game. Good graphics, new weapons, new maps and four new characters with funny and cool personalities. Great survival for a zombie apocalypse game itself. Would love to get Left 4 Dead 3, if it ever came out.. of course.

You will be frustrated, you will be kicked, you wil quick join some hentai modded perverted servers, you will be called hacking scum and you will call others cheaters, things will not make sense,

When you have 200+ games in the library with "nothing to play", somehow you will launch this glitchy and lerpy piece of ancient sheat, you will eat a full spoon of it and ask for a refill.

I modded this game and now I don't know what it's about; something to do with a virus and shrek running at you shouting DONKEY.

I think I remember the original game being good...
