What I think about it

         I know, you don't have to tell me I'm a bit late in reviewing this, but I'm sure some people may not have experienced the awesomeness known as Left 4 Dead. So basically some virus or something gets out, most of the world is infected bla bla bla typical zombie storyline. But the game isn't so typical, you have to work in a squad of 4 ( or a maxium of 4 in online co-op, any characters not played will be filled with AI ) and are put up against a load of zombies. Ranging from common infected ( Don't undermine them simply because of their name...seriously.) to the fearsome special infected, who have a variety of ways to get you into deep ****. While fightinng all them off, you have to make it to the next safehouse. These safehouses are weapon staches with a few medical supplies laying. Left 4 dead originally had 4 campaigns, a 5th and 6th ( Crash Course and The Lighthouse)  was added when valve released the "Survival Pack" for the game. The 6th campaign only allows play in the "Survivor" mode of the game, and is more if a "What if" scenario, rather than a part of the main storyline. Left 4 Dead 2 originally came with 5 campaigns, a 6th (The Passing)  also being released in the "Survival pack". Each campaign  consists of  approximately 5 levels. It uses the aging source engine, but it still looks pretty good for a modern day game. Who even cares about graphics when you have outstanding gameplay? All in all this game is excellent, you should pick it up if you get the chance.
