Left 4 Dead 2 is a FPS (First Person Shooter) survival horror videogame developed by Valve Software. It is the sequel to the original Left 4 Dead. The game is available for Windows PC, Linux systems and Xbox 360. The game deals with the well-known topic of the undead apocalypse. You play as a member of a group of four human survivors that are struggling to escape from zombie infested areas.
The game is split into different campaigns, each one with several levels where survivors must fight their way to the next safe room. There is a vast arsenal of weapons to choose from, although not every one of them is available from the beginning. Left 4 Dead 2 allows you to choose how you want to smash the zombie hordes, either using exotic melée weapons such as a genuine Gibson SG or a good old shotgun, amongst many other fire guns.
The game is split into different campaigns, each one with several levels
There are four playable characters: Rochelle, a TV production assistant, Nick, a father addicted to gambling, Ellis, a young mechanic from Philadelphia and Coach, an ex-football player. However, those fans of the first L4D will love to know that Zoey, Bill, Francis and Louis are also available as playable characters for some DLC campaigns such as The Sacrifice.
A Customizable Game
The game can be personalized in many ways thanks to Steam Workshop and its huge community of fans. Customization can be done using different mods that will change several aspects of the game, either visual changes such as character and weapon skins or even maps created by users from scratch. Bear in mind that these custom maps can have different mechanics and objectives than the official ones.
These mods give you the ability to turn your survivors into Halo Spartans, change the HUD to display a simulated gas mask view or modify the sound effects and replace them with the original soundtrack of the film Inception. Custom maps are also varied, but some of them are far more elaborate than others, so it’s not uncommon to find some maps a bit disappointing. You can find settings like Half-Life maps, disco clubs and even a Pizza Hut full of zombies.

Best ZOMBIE ass-kicking game. Left 4 Dead 2 or Dead Rising 2 ?? Find out which one ??

Well as this is my first review about any game, so i'll start with the best zombie game (everyone loves zombie-they are adorable). The game that i'm talking about is Left 4 Dead 2. The games got everything action, thriller, comedy(in excess) and of course some sorrow time too. In the initial comparison i have played many zombie games, but i'll like to compare L4D2 with Dead Rising 2. You see Dead Rising 2 has also everything that L4D2 has except few key factors that DR2 lacks in front of L4D2. Factors as like:
1- Firstly the game is too slow. There are levels and necessity of doing and achieving tasks. While on the L4D2 end, every single scenario depends on what moves you make or how much distractions you create. More like a real situation.
2- Secondly- The zombies. The corpses in the DR2 are really very slow and dumb. They just stick at one place and move a step or a two in hours and are like walkby-and-get ignored by them. Bleh who likes that. But in L4D2, the creators have really put a hard work on zombie movements you see, they static and calm when they cannot see or sense you. Yes, in L4D2 the zombies can sense your presences and will attack you in hordes (like 40-50) zombies at a single time. That situation is kinda hot...you really love it. Its like when you snipe them from distance, they won't bother to find you but the moment you are near and flash a light on them, Boom you gonna help yourself out.
3-Thirdly the scenarios. The place in DR2 is based all inside a mall and its interior compound walls. You run here and there to find Zombrex (stupid word). And also the environment is also not dynamic. Yes although there are many zombies standing here and there, but read it again i added STANDING here not ATTACKING. Like 40-50 zombies would be just standing there. While in L4D2 the same condition is kept in zombies but all the 40-50 zombies would run and chase towards you in a hell of style to eat your brains out. And also the game is widely spread on different places throughout the whole scheme. New levels and 5-6 new inter sub levels inside them.
4-The Specials. You see in DR2 there are no specific kind of specially infected types of zombies all the same kind and also in repeated forms. But in L4D2, there are many who are specially infected as like the Spitter-Spits only acid (deadly acid) really an asshole but there's no fun in a level without it. The Hunter- really behaves like a deadly hunter hides in darkness or also climbs up on the buildings and jumps really uphigh to attack you. Scars the shit put of it. Anywho there are many special infected. Really it adds the more fun to the game.
5-Lastly The Joy. The killing in DR2 is not that interesting as they will get killed by any means and you can pickup anything to throw it on them. Not cool. But in L4D2 the shits really heavy. You gotta save your ammo and health cause the levels having an alarm concept is the worst and the toughest to get through. You see when an alarm is struck you have really less time cause the sounds attracts a hell of zombie group. And group is horde here like 100-120 of zombies all together and not just that it keeps on repeating until you switch the alarm off.
So in conclusion, people finding any zombie games to play and enjoy with pals. I do recommend go for Left 4 Dead 2. I have personally enjoyed this game and also right now i'm doing it. You won't regret. Choose wisely. Hope this was helpful.
- Massive online gameplay performance and thrice the fun in versus mode.
- Very fast and understanding virtual scenario shown in the game as the graphics are very realistic.
- Hordes and hordes of zombies along with specially infected also makes this game more realistic.
- The special sound effects and the music in the game matches no other games in the field.
- Only one disadvantage- this shit is highly addictive.
