Left 4 Dead 2 (Left For Dead 2) XBOX360
Left 4 Dead 2 is the sequel to the best-selling and critically-acclaimed co-operative multiplayer smash from Valve. The title adds melee combat to the award-winning L4D style of play, with items such as a chainsaw, frying pan, axe, baseball bat, and more. The setting is at roughly the same time as the original - just after the outbreak that turned most of the population into various zombie mutants. Players assume the role of 4 new "Survivors," each with their own personality and new dialog. The game leads these Survivors through the south-eastern region of the US - from Savannah, Georgia thru the bayou country, and climaxing in New Orleans' French Quarter. Left 4 Dead 2 offers a much larger game than the original with more co-operative campaigns, more Versus campaigns, maps for Survival Mode at launch, and more...

Addictive! Hooked on survival mode..
Love this game, especially the online stuff. Recommend to anyone.
Fantastic game. However the online can be very frustrating and repetetive. You may enter bad games but when you find a decent game with decent team mates the game is great fun. Also for £8.90 this is a bargain recommend keeping it!
Graphics not great. Team play good. Overall not really very impressive.
I can see why people enjoyed this so much. I was not one of them. It's ok, played with a friend, its a bit of a laugh, but it had little substance. Back to COD for multiplayer awesome.
Left 4 Dead 2 is the second in the popular left for dead series. The first was very popular, so lets see how the second matched up. As usual we start with graphics and sound. Graphically the game is good. The zombies look good and you don't get the case where all the zombies look the same as the last. The special infected are well done and look good. The sound is also done well. You hear zombies a good distance before you see them. The special infected each have their own distinctive sound, which makes identifying which one is close, an easy task. All weapons sound correct and some have an amusing sound when hitting zombies. Ok now on to game play. Well we see the return of the special infected from the first series, Boomer, Hunter, Smoker, Witch and Tank, however a few more have been added for this game. Spitter (which spits a pool of acid at you that burns under your feet), Jockey (which is probably one of the most annoying you will meet. It jumps on your head and rides you while hitting and biting your head) and finally the charger which is a smaller version of the tank but runs at massive speed and grabs someone then pounds them on the floor over and over. These new special infected are a good addition and do fit in nicely with the ones from the first game. Finally the online play. In my honest opinion I would suggest you play this with friends, if you do, the online play will be a great time. If you play with strangers, this can be the games main drawback. There is a voting system where people can be voted out of the game by the other members. So if you aren't living up to others lofty standards you may find yourself being voted out of a game for nothing. Give some people power and it will be abused. So go on with friends and you will enjoy many hours of fun. In all I would say Left for Dead 2 is a very good follow on from the first and will bring lots of enjoyment for you and your friends. Just be weary of online play with strangers. This game can be enjoyed by both people who are veterans of gaming and by new players. I will be scoring this an 85.
Good fun and an improvement on the original mainly because there's a lot more variety in weapons. The new monsters are cool too. 90%
Good game, but rather repetitive. Also control system could be a little better.
You take the role of four new characters in this, it is basically a standalone add-on pack of the original Left for Dead, with new story's and online gaming types, fast paced, adrenalin fuelled mayhem at its finest! If you enjoyed the first game, is definitely worth a rent, maybe keep it! Also very good if you have a second person you can play with!
