I downloaded and played the demo to see what all the advertisements were about and...WOW i'm very impressed.

forget resident evil and silent hill (I never was much of a fan of zombie games) Left4Dead is the zombie game to end all zombie games.

I won't ruin it for you by telling you whats in the demo, so give it a try. And by the time you accidentally start a car alarm and three hundred zombies come tearing towards you, you'll be loving it.

it's great fun when your playing online with your m8s. you form a circle just before hundeds of zombies run in your direction, all 4 of you muttering obscenities under your breath. the co-op in this game is necessary for u to survive...there are numerous ways to find yourself pinned by a zombie, relying on a friend to save you, so it really adds to the quality of play

The issues i had with beta.
felt like a game from 2000 but with slightly better graphics
the guns are all awful - but then again the guns in them days were
if you play on a normal server, expect ppl not to die after you pummel 10 billion bullets in them. join a HC server.
the beta had no filering options, meant finding HC servers was hard if HC/or hardcore wasnt in title.
in SnD you couldnt hear ppl planting the bomb like you can in CoD4
the footstep sounds have improved but at times seemed inconsistant.

but that was beta, they has been a patch released, for codwaw proper. but i was seriously off put by the beta, compared to the feeling i got when playing cod demo, the feeling certainly wasnt same. hence why of my reluctance to get.

back to left for dead demo... manic. very good fun though get put in with muppets and you regret it as they set off the car alarms and run off on their own thinking they can do it. Even on expert levels people seem to think charging round a corner into the middle of the zombie pack is quite acceptable :O very funny when they cry out in the chat afterwards.

If you come up against a tank, get ready to start back in the safe room again Rolling Eyes I'd rather go up against a witch, at least only one of you dies then!

The amount of voice acting in the game is a welcome breath of fresh air, especially how much of it is automated. It's such a time saver as well as a nice atmospheric touch. Love the zombie rushes and the boss zombies (except aforementioned tank). It's awesome to find yourself with a zombie rush coming and you just close the door on them and blast straight through the door into all of them Cool
'Play with friends' is also a nice touch, at least you know who it is and they won't do what mad said Very Happy

Still a few kinks to work out on the connections front, and the subway level is getting tired quick, but bought this on Amazon for £19 yesterday.

Steam ID is 'Munkhi' if anyone's interested in a game Wink




PS: Auto Shotgun ftw!
