Now, I don't play a lot of video games, especially ones in this type of genre, but I had to tell you all about how awesome Left 4 Dead is. We have it on the XBox 360, and it is one of the best games I have seen in a LONG time! Not since I was scared silly with the dog jumping through the window in the original Resident Evil game have I been so excited about playing a game.
You are apart of a group of 4 people trying to fight your way through mobs, masses and plethoras of zombies. I am seriously not joking you, there are shitloads of zombies in this game. Even the most bloody thirsty zombie killers will not be disappointed with the sheer numbers of zombies pouring out of every hole, chimney, window and oriface of the landscape. My favorite part so far has to have been the '300' style herding of zombies through one window, that is fun to dispose of. When you least expect it, zombies just jump out at you from no where.
The beauty of this game is that it is co-op, you can also log into XBox Live and play with other people, as a human, and I have heard also as a zombie. Yes, play as a zombie. I haven't got to try that yet, but I will let you know if that is true.
I really like how each chapter is set up like a movie, with movie posters for each load scene, with awesome titles such as 'No Mercy', where you are making your way up to the top of a hospital, and 'Death Pact' where you are on the outskirts of a small town working your way in.
This game was released November 17, 2008. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
