Left 4 Dead 2 is a 2009 Valve game. Coming from a leading video-game company, we know it’s going to be good. Moreover, it’s the sequel to 2008’s best co-op game, and our Left 4 Dead review shows it’s even better.

Left 4 Dead Review: fierce team-oriented gameplay
Within the zombie apocalypse, you play as one of four surviving humans. The team must find the way through the dead to the end of each map.
As the characters battle, they chat with each other, make comments, and add ideas on specific parts of the fight. Each survivor has a distinct personality that makes keeping the company enjoyable.
More than that, this game is hard. It’s hard to go solo, so going on a team is probably the most effective way to complete the game. And you’ll need to participate, chat, and communicate with your friends to go on.
Every member of the survivor squad must share ammo, weapons, and health pickups. The team must also call for help whenever trouble arises.
No playthrough is the same as before, so it’s always going to be hard. There’s an AII system called the Director governing map creation and enemy behavior. It gives this game high replayability as the Director tries to match your performance with increasing challenges.
It gets even better when you ad the Valve-levels of firepower into your survivor’s backpack.
Aside from everything I’ve said, Left 4 Dead 2 also has a challenging versus mode. It’s a 4v4 match that pits player-controlled humans against player-controller zombies.
The versus mode features powerful zombie types we found on the first game, which includes bosses and extraordinary monsters.
Naturally, you’ll need o to refine your team tactics to go around the versus mode. Add the campaing-specific challenges, and you’ll end up with the contrary to a relaxing game. See, the campaigns include crescendo evens and defense sequences any fps fan is going o enjoy over and over.
Lastly, you can play the game with AII bots, so it’s okay if you don’t have a team of friends. The computer teammates are accurate and smart, so don’t worry.
However, the worts part of our Left 4 Dead 2 review is the PvP section of the game. It’s currently full of bugs and balance issues. Fans are waiting for the community-made The Last Stand expansion for fixes.
We’re slowly reviewing the Best Games on Steam. Check the other members of the list:
Half-Life, Team Fortress, and Counter-Strike creators hand-tailored a next-gen co-op action game. With the director system and the versatility of 30 different melee & ranged weapons, Left 4 Dead 2 offers a co-op experience like no other.
Overall, Left 4 Dead is a fantastic co-op experience, and it doesn’t cost much. Don’t be afraid of its longevity, we all know Valve games age like fine wine.
And I left the best thing about this game out. It’s only $9.99. A bargain you’d be playing for years to come if you haven’t still.
