Left4Dead

Post by Hemish on Wed Nov 12, 2008 5:33 pm

Anyone playing the demo of this at the moment?
I dont usually like first person shooters but this is awesome.
It mixes it up so much and it can be just downright scary too.
Cant wait for the full release.

Got the full release for christmas, only played for 5 mins or so to get a feel for it.

I'm soo used to 3rd person games that this seems like it may be a hard sell to me in first person, but we'll see how we go.

A mate of mine gifted me a copy on steam, it is utterly fantastic...I really can't tell you how much fun it is to play your friends!

I liked the sound of it but the reviews were pretty average when it was released.

Definitely get a hold of the demo if you can UCK, it's a fantastic LAN/multiplayer bash.

You kidding? Where? I haven't heard a bad thing said against this game, which is absolutely completely the shit. It's so, so awesome - the only drawback at all at the moment is the lack of maps, and Valve's support of their product is fantastic, so we'll see more content soon.

I just figured because it was a 360 game it would have been pretty poor at best. Wink

Mwahahaha, I have all three next-gen consoles (and a ripper gaming PC) and I swear by none of them, all have their pros and cons. I'm actually really happy the PS3 now has a lot of good exclusive software (specifically MGS4 and Little Big Planet) and can compete with the 360's bigger line up, since the PS3 hardware and controller are significantly better. That said, I still use my 360 more than anything else, mostly due to the line up (which does include a lot of great stuff also on the PS3) and because I have more friends on the 360, which is great for multiplayer.

Re: the FPS with 2 control sticks, I used to think like this as well, usually picking up PC versions of FPS games, but nowadays it's really hard to tell. I'm nearly as accurate in FPS with the 360 controller as I am on a mouse and keyboard, and some FPS are exceptional on a console. (Fallout 3, I'm looking at you) L4D and Mirror's Edge both use the two thumbsticks excellently, as an example...

Rob, for you? Just get it. Seriously. I doubt you'll be disappointed! You could always hire a copy? Or maybe just get it from EB games and return it for a swap over if you don't like it.
