Left 4 Dead Review

Left 4 Dead
Xbox 360
Cam3ron36

How do you start with such an enjoyable game? Difficult right now I can tell you that much. What a perfect blend of such valve classics like half life, mixed with the clichť zombie apocalypse genre that captivates the market today. In the beginning it will be a change, an unfamiliar change. No game is really similar to this considering you can play a zombie-half life with a team and rely on each other to survive through the 5 campaigns offered (Crash Course DLC), and even come across a creative cast of special zombies that have super abilities. Truly a new idea had risen above the horizon and an instant hit was born and placed in the hands of many now eager fans. Downsides exist in Left 4 Dead and you either adore the thing or hate it although most of us gamers enjoy it, yet how can you say that any game is adored entirely by the public? Truth is that Left 4 Dead is what it deserves and earns its rank and some amongst the people of todayís gaming generation.

Many will be familiar with this game, yet many wonít. What really captivates the imagination of this game is the online. Nothing says fighting zombies with 3 friends like some Left 4 Dead, and what better means to do it in the horrifying environments involved, blended with the simplicity and importance involved in the weapons arsenal. Offering only 5 campaigns may seem dull but being a fan of shooters will charge you to replay the game on your shelf with much replay value, not to mention the additional multiplayer modes to play with friends as an outlet this game will offer nothing more than an enjoyable experience you wonít soon forget.


Interesting, fun for all, Intelligent, whatever words you choose to describe it are yours to own but it is assuredly a deserving game of such titles, even if you donít like it personally. So curl up in your seat in fear, or laugh at the face of death and terrorize the zombie nation is your choice in Left 4 Dead. Itís up to you on what you decide but I wouldnít give it a second thought to where this game ranks in the history of valve, the history of the 360/pc or even the history of shooters. Ranking so high is no small feat and Iím proud to say that I like this game and itís not without good reason.


For reading, be advised that this is just a short review, nothing special. I also tried approaching a new style for this one so let me know what you think.
Thanks - Cam.

you sure the new style was alright? This one was very short compared to my usual review.

I prefer your older style reviews, but you said this one was going to be short because of lack of time.

yeah, only had 2 hours or so. Kind of went for a short and sweet powerful review rather than a long descriptive review with lots to say.

Sounds more like an advertisement than a review. Breaking the review down, there are no points being made. You sort of dance around that it's a popular game, but not without reason, and yet you never delve any deeper into why that is. Be wary of verbosity; language is about communication, not about contrived eloquence. In the end it is empty and highfalutin. I say this sincerely.

I was not expecting a good response considering the time I had but I was not expecting to get a terrible one either. Thanks for the input though, wasn't sure.

You didn't say anything of value, what kind of response did you really expect? Put your usual effort into it next time. But that doesn't mean that you have to write something "epic" (not the quotations) like your Doom review. Just get across some valid and worthwhile points that people would be happy to have read.
