Left 4 Dead 2
Left 4 Dead 2, surprise surprise, continues the previous Left 4 Dead game, a bestselling hit of 2008. Valve South delivers even more of the content enjoyed by every player. The four characters from the original Left 4 Dead get replaced by a new quartet. The story directly continues the plot from Left 4 Dead, beginning right after it had ended.
With our new survivor friends we have to try to stay alive attacked by new hordes of zombies. We get to visit Georgia and New Orleans. In Left 4 Dead, the most important way of killing the undead was through the use of firearms. In the sequel, Valve implements the use of melee weapons, adding a whole new side to the battles. Instead of pistols and rifles, we can use chainsaws, axes, baseball bats and… a frying pan. The game was intensive enough before: now, with the addition of a whole new set of weapons, the level of dynamics got squared. Valve has done all they could to make every game different from the others. The weather is dynamic and changeable, and so are… the maps.
Some of their elements can vary: for example, you can suddenly find your only hope, the last passage… blocked by an old bus. This makes the game even more fun and unpredictable. You can never be sure of what happens next, just like you would in real life. You never know what is behind the corner. It also affects the enemies: they have various hiding places and unpredictable scripts, so that they can come at you from the most unexpected direction. The four new characters are Nick, Rochelle, Coach and Ellis. Everyone will find their match. As usually, Left 4 Dead 2 is perfect for cooperation. In includes even more campaigns, modes and scenarios than the first instalment, being a perfect choice for a group of friends.

Left 4 Dead 2 Review
I played the new campaign “The Sacrifice” and found it to be a much more enjoyable experience than the previous campaigns. Valve have done away with that stupidly limiting skybox seen in the Left 4 Dead 2 campaigns and went for a longer maps/shorter campaign approach only releasing 2 new maps with the 3 map campaign
