Left 4 Dead 2

I have been enjoying my time playing Left 4 Dead 2. I was originally skeptical about how much better or different it could be. While the idea is the same, the game is a lot better. Especially the sounds, they did a really good job making the environment sound real and authentic.

There are also new special infected which adds some much needed variety to the series. The melee weapons are new as well and particularly fun. My favorite thus far is the katana and the fire axe.

The game is also harder than the original, I havenít tried it on expert yet but Iíd imagine it is pretty intense. My favorite campaign thus far has been the Hard Rain campaign. The storm in it is really well done, the sounds being a big part of it. The AI is just as annoying as in the first game, if not more, so of course try and fill out your team with all human players whenever possible.

The versus mode has some nice new touches that I like. In particular the new progress indicators so you know how far youíve actually gotten in the level. Plus the new special infected adds some much needed variety when playing as the infected.

I still think that they should have offered some sort of discount if you bought the previous game. Since there was supposed to be a lot more free DLC for the first game than there actually was.

My final verdict though is that L4D2 is a solid game that is a lot of fun.
