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

Action packed zombie apocalypse with some funny moments when playing with friends. This game has really outdone itself. I enjoy the swarms of zombies and the intense feel of always being close to death around every corner. This game is a real blast when playing with a group of friends as you fight for your survival.

Love the extra add ons for the game to give it that much of your own twist to the game and make it interesting and fun filled.

ah left4dead2... what is there to say... well how about i adress the gameplay of it first. gameplay has mostly stayed the same from the first instalment with a couple of new features to make it feel new. there are now 3 new special infected in this game makeing the special infected count up to 9 of them. as for plot changes... well your not gonna get a whole to much as it dose kinda fallow the first game as in get to point A to point B with out dieing in between. iv have been waiting to get to this one with it is game modes. unlike the 1st games 4 game modes l4d2 gives us 4 new ones rounding the number up to 8 game modes. just like the first game l4d2 is a great team based survival game and along with the modding community playing this game wil allways be fun and youl never play 1 game mode or campain with some mates the same way each time as it'l always be diffrent even in just littel things.. so in conclusion grab your gear,some mates, and some mods to be a little bit more amused and go kick some undead and mamby not so undead ♥♥♥

I was gifted this game by a friend, And I had a couple other friends who also Played L4D2, We were a squad of 4.
How lucky i was to have friends to play with, The multiplayer community is ♥♥♥♥ING TOXIC.
Didn't collect a gas can in scavenge? Votekicked.
Decimated the other team as the tank in versus? Votekicked.
Healed yourself when you were recently downed but didn't heal a kid who had 43hp and pain pills? Votekicked.
Too good? Votekicked.
Too new? Votekicked.
Startled the witch but cr0wned her? Votekicked anyway.
If you're looking for a good lobby, it's not common.
I suggest before buying this game you have friends to play with, Solo is a dead end, Bots aren't fun.
If you can find somebody with low hours and they're nice people, here's what you should do.
Friend said new individual, and play friends only games with them, Repeat this short process until you've got a good group of 4.
If you DO have friends to play with, Ignore this whole group building thing.
From MY Experience with good friends and cutting out the short session i had with multiplayer and votekicking.
I'd have to give this a solid 10/10.

This has to be the best, most original, zombie survival based game to ever be brought forth to the gaming community. I will argue nothing less; this is the best zombie survival game I have ever come across, you can't dislike this game! Every aspect of this game is lovable, between the four witty unique characters, the eerie plot of the story themed campaigns, and the various gamemodes, weapons, and special infected. Left 4 Dead deserves every award it recieved.

All in All Left4Dead2 is the best Most Original Zombie Game

9/10 From Me

900+ Hours and counting.
This sequel is #1 on my list of Recommended Games. The Left 4 Dead Series is an instant classic, released 7 years ago and it still holds up. Play alone or play with your friends (or strangers), you will enjoy this game for countless hours. L4D2 is an improvement to an already fantastic and entertaining game. Make new friends, or lose some, the game focuses on cooperative gameplay that will teach you how to be patient and make you a great team player. You can download new maps and customize the whole game with mods from the workshop. This is the Best Zombie Co-op game ever!

Here are some pros:
+Easy mechanics, no boring story-line
+Community is alive and well (90% of the people on my friends list are from this game).
+Endless mods on the Workshop. It's like walking into a grocery store.
+Funny and witty Character Lines.
+Melee Weapons
+More Blood
+New Survivors, New Campaigns, New Zombies.
+Achievements that you will enjoy hunting for.
+Cool Easter Eggs and Movie references.
+Random jump scares every once in a while.
+Boomer is still Ugly

I only have one Con though:
-GOOD GUY NICK!!!


10/10 Would kill all sons-a-♥♥♥♥♥es again!

I actually became a nervous wreck by playing this game too much, the clenching of my butt cheeks passing every corner, waiting... Waiting for that charger, that boomer, that smoker, that spitter, that jockey, that hunter. However nothing compares to the horrors of feeling about 50 pounds of un-earthed cement flying through the air towards your party, feeling the tremors of the ground as you know. God isn't real, there is only the Tank between you and salvation now, Pray he have mercy on your soul.
