Left 4 Dead is set in a zombie apocalypse situation. You play as one of four different characters - Louis, Zoe, Bill or Francis - and try to go to safety zones at each of the levels or leaving the infected areas. The main story follows four protagonists in their attempts to escape the hordes of zombies and other infected mutants. Every single time though something goes wrong.

At every single chapter, players must defend themselves from a horde of zombies as well as completing different tasks in order to leave the location - power up the generator, contact military service via radio or some other objects. Every level you start in a safe room with melee and firearms weapon, like UZI, Katana, AK-47, supplies and medicaments like the first-aid kit which will heal you or your partner and painkillers which will give you some amount of health that you will lose over time. Ordinary zombies are not the only enemies you are going to face, as Smokers, Hunters, Tanks and other mutated monsters are about to stop you from getting to the end of the level.

Great Game. The Campaigns are diverse and Add-ons expand this Diversity. The Special Zombies miss the Game the necessary Spice and the Items (Tablets, Mollie, Pipe Bomb) are also great. It'S fun with Friends as well as in Single-player mode, although the other three Team Members as NPC are a little inept and you have a harder time. It is also stupid that you have to run alone, so that it usually hits you first, for example in the Hunter or the Witch. Nevertheless good Game, you can play again and again.

In the first Part clearly the Melee Weapons, Grenade Launchers, Adrenals and many other Weapons such as the Colt or THE AK are clearly missing. Too bad, because more Weapons more Variety. Otherwise typical 4-Player coop, where you can butcher your Team through various campaign maps with your team or in Versus Mode (PVP) can make yourself as an Infected person in the Hunt for the Survivor Team. A Game that's Fun when the Team fits! In My Opinion L4D2 BETTER, because there are the Weapons that I now miss in the first Part. Also, in the second Part you can find a few more Infected and Maps, which bring more Variety into the Game. Bought For 1.99€ on Offer, they are all worth it. 19.99€ I personally find something much for such an old but good Game, for the same price you can already get the second Part with more Content. Have fun.

Left 4 Dead is a pure CoOp shooter, with many different varied Campaigns/Levels, weapon types, first-line Gameplay and of course a Lot of different zombie types. To the Story: As a Player you slip into the roll as one of the 4 playable human Character, (Francis, Bill, Louis or Zoey) and in each of the Campaigns, which are almost always divided into 5 Sections, you can achieve a certain Saffron boom of course alive and at the E To escape the nature of the respective Campaign with a Rescue Vehicle. Sounds very simple, but can also be associated with Stress, because sometimes you can't do it at the first time ... Graphics & Sound: Graphically, the Game still offers a relatively pretty Look, thanks to Valve'S Source engine and can still be seen. Sound technical you also get a lot on offer at Left 4 Dead, good-vocal Music, powerful weapon sounds as well as other sound effects. The German Setting/Synchronization of the Characters has also been achieved, which can be heard and makes one of them smile a little bit:D Verdict & Review: From me personally, as a big Fan of the 1st Part of Left 4 Dead, there's a very clear buy recommendation and not only for zombie shooter fans, but also for any other Gamer:) 10/10
