Left 4 Dead

released on Nov 17, 2008

From Valve (the creators of Counter-Strike, Half-Life and more) comes Left 4 Dead, a co-op action horror game for the PC and Xbox 360 that casts up to four players in an epic struggle for survival against swarming zombie hordes and terrifying mutant monsters.

Set in the immediate aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, L4D's survival co-op mode lets you blast a path through the infected in four unique “movies,” guiding your survivors across the rooftops of an abandoned metropolis, through rural ghost towns and pitch-black forests in your quest to escape a devastated Ground Zero crawling with infected enemies. Each "movie" is comprised of five large maps, and can be played by one to four human players, with an emphasis on team-based strategy and objectives.

New technology dubbed "the AI Director" is used to generate a unique gameplay experience every time you play. The Director tailors the frequency and ferocity of the zombie attacks to your performance, putting you in the middle of a fast-paced, but not overwhelming, Hollywood horror movie.

Addictive single player, co-op, and multiplayer action gameplay from the makers of Counter-Strike and Half-Life Versus Mode lets you compete four-on-four with friends, playing as a human trying to get rescued, or as a zombie boss monster that will stop at nothing to destroy them.

One of the best zombie shooters of all time! The game is not primarily about the plot, but about the action. A reference example of survival during the zombie apocalypse.

Whats the point play left 4 dead 2

safable, terrorifico para un nene de 8 años

Really wonderful. Left 4 Dead managed to strike gold as a solid co-op game that, while it feels barebones nowadays, still shines with solid enemy and level design that keeps it fun even after 14 years of its release. Even though Left 4 Dead 2 totally outclasses the original it's still a really great piece of history that doesn't get replicated as well as it should due to its spiritual successors either trying to do too much or not giving enough at all.

If only there was some kind of convenient way to mod this game quickly…
