Left 4 Dead was released by Vavle, towards the end of November in 2008. A first-person shooter, Left 4 Dead is honestly, the best pc game I have ever played.
The game starts out with 4 survivors/characters:
*Zoey, a female college student
*Bill an ex-war veteran
*Louis, a buisnessman
*Francis, a tatooed biker
Each character boasts a certain "intrigue" about them which is complemented by over 1000 lines of talk which were recorded for various situations.
In the game there are 3 modes of play: Campaign, Versus, and Survival. Honestly, after a week or so of playing youll find that versus is where all the fun is at. I recommend that you beat Campaign mode at the advanced setting before attempting to play online in vs mode due to the high spirit of competition.
Altho only 4 maps to play on, all are unique and totally replayable. Hell, Ive clocked over 1000 hours since the day of release haha. But honestly, everything about this game is epic. The graphics, the characters, the aura of the maps, the weather, and most of all, the ability to meet great friends and kill infected. I dont want to give anything away on the classes of infected in VS mode so I wont say anymore.
Bottom Line, I have played every first person shooter on the market in the last 6 years, and this is the best one yet. The co-op is unequaled and in my opinion, this game is a s defining as Halo was nearly a decade ago. Buy it now =)
