Silver Dot Posted October 29, 2009 Share Posted October 29, 2009 (edited) Game: Left 4 Dead 2Left 4 Dead 2 is an upcoming cooperative first-person shooter game. It is the sequel to Valve's award-winning Left 4 Dead. The game is currently set to launch on November 17, 2009, for PC and Xbox 360. It will build upon the cooperatively focused gameplay of the original and will be using Valve's proprietary Source Engine, the same game engine used in Left 4 Dead. Rating: 9/10-1 Point reason: Valve promised us more weapons and content in the first Left 4 Dead. This is the main reason of the Boycott that gained over 10,000 members. I believe they would have done the right thing by not just not leaving L4D1 alone, but releasing L4D2 with more content to L4D1, frankly, I don't really give a ****, I'm not poor.Trailer: Actual Review: I pre-purchased the second day that L4D2 was available for pre purchase on Steam. I am proud to say that I pity whoever didn't.Although the demo contained a mere 2 missions, it showed that Valve wasn't sucking Gabe's dick but actually working. The demo was DELAYED more then 5 times at the last minutes, but to me it was completley worth the wait.The demo showed amazing footage of awesomeness, my favorite weapon was the Machete, honestly I'm sad they saved the best for last (Chain Saw, for when it comes out). The first time I picked up a Desert Eagle and held it in my virtual hands I literally had butterflies in my belly.New characters, new weapons, new zombies, new EVERYTHING:Coach is a high-school football coach and is used to leading teams.Rochelle is a women reporter for a local cable company and is producing a segment on the "strange" occurring in Savannah.Ellis is a boy mechanic who has a smart mind and is said to have a "Southern Flair"Nick is a gambler and conman who is unsure of his company and cynical about the events happening.The ChargerThe Charger "charges" the survivors forcing them to disperse should they be huddled together. The Mutant can hit multiple survivors with one blow and can also slam a survivor multiple times to the ground until a teammate kills the Charger. (The main goal of the Charger is to prevent players from camping in boxed areas)The SpitterThe female Spitter has an area attack that can split up the survivors or flush them out of their hiding spotsThe Jockey:The Jockey is a small special infected who can jump on a survivors back and essentially steer a player to its desired direction causing a "breakup" in the team.Uncommon/Common Infected :Hazmat:The Hazmat is a Uncommon Infected and cannot be set on fire, Molotov's will not be of any use. In order to kill them one must shoot it with a primary weapon or by using melee weapons. Mudmen:The Mudmen are Infected that only appear in swampy areas. They cant be killed by Molotovs. They walk on all 4's like a dog and come from the water so you cant see them until it's too late.Riot Infected:The Riot Infected can only be killed from behind which forces players to move further away from each other making them more vunerable to other threats.Infected Clowns:The Infected clowns have bells on their shoes which attracts more Infected. A few final notes: I will seriously have nightmares because of this game...the clowns are the MAIN reason Review by SD.Sites that helped: Wikipedia ( a bit, mostly useless crap that no one cares about)L4D2 PC Steam group.
