Left 4 Dead demo is now live. Go! Kill zombies!
Downloading as soon as I get home :) I need to see how it plays out with a pad. Buying it for the PC, but I have friends on all platforms so I might pick up a 360 version to. Anyone know what's included in the demo?
According to my friends on Live, it's two levels, subway and apartment. I heard it was really fun. I too am getting the PC version but I'm curious how the 360 version does and will download the 360 demo as well just to play on my TV.
Very impressive! The demo has 2 levels, Apartment and Subway as previously mentioned. You can play with 3 AI Bots as your team, or you can play 4 player co-op with either 3 friends, or search online for 3 other people! Overall, very impressive. The number of Zombies on screen is superb, very creepy, and you can see how the co-op aspect will play in the game with saving team-mates, healing etc etc I wasn't really bothered about Left 4 Dead, but now....if enough of my Xbox Live friends get this, I will too.
Cheers for the feedback guys. Sounds great. Gonna give it a buzz soon as! +1 for ya both.
yeah dude, i'm stoked! can't wait to get off work and go kill some zombies!
It's actually one-and-one-half levels. The second half of Subway was cut off.
Played the 360 demo recently and it was good. Fun, but not some amazing experience I was expecting. The movie feel is surprisingly well done, but the gameplay itself (I understand it is a 2 level demo, but still) was kinda boring. Move from point A to B, shoot everything and get to a safe house. In no way am I saying it's garbage, but it isn't the masterpiece gaming media would have you believe. And it's ugly.
As much as i respect your opinion I find it hard to agree with. 1st off the game looks really really good and 2nd it's simply amazing what valve has done here with co-op and b flick entertainment. There is more teamwork required here then in any other game I think I've ever played. This is going to be a sleeper hit and more then just a "it's a ok game".
ive been playing the effing hell outta the demo for the last week. to really get the best of the demo is to get some buddies, and play on Expert. that is where the game really shines. do it over and over again to see how great the AI Director works. the game so far is phenomenal on Expert.
I respect your differing opinion as well, but I stand by my statements. It WAS fun, but to be fair, I'm coming off playing the Killzone 2 beta and everything is ugly to me right now. But let's also be honest about Source...it's is old and ugly and L4D shows it (at least on the 360). However, the teamwork aspects felt no different than playing Team Deathmatch in XYZ Shooter. Communication is the key (as with anything TEAM based). Besides sneaking past a Witch or shooting the tongue off a smoker, it felt like any other FPS I've played. That's not a deal breaker, just a reality...for me at least.
I haven't played the 360 version, but the PC version is gorgeous at max settings.
The Zombies move carzy fast and you better play as a team or you wont last long. Ohhhhhhhhh sorry, it's NOT on PSN or the PS3
I've only played the PC version, but for me this is GOTY material. Game looks absolutely amazing at max settings too. BTW you need to play on Expert mode :) The game is far too easy on Normal or Hard.
At first I had no interest in this game, didn't understand why some magazines said this was a game to keep an eye on, and only downloaded the demo just to see how worthless the game was... I can honestly say... I was stupid on my part! The demo for Left 4 Dead was a lot of fun, and everyone should try to play it if they can! I never really liked zombie shooter games, but this one just seems to have a fun factor that just can't be explained! Dam good time to be a gamer!!!
Played the 360 Demo a couple of times, going back on once i finish some PS work for college i'm so glad i pre-ordered this now. :)
:/ I sure hope to God, i dont like this game. I cant keep spending money like this. :(
I didn't really cared for this game at first, but after hearing what everyone is saying about it... ME WANT :)!
Got a PC? See if you can run it first, this will test your hardware > http://www.systemrequiremen...
I will get a new laptop in the end of the month though... So I might run it on the laptop. I'm waiting to buy a new desktop PC for when Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 will be released :)
DIABLO 3 FTW!!! i'm upgrading my computer next year just for that game!
LMFAO. i decided to update to the NXE last night, cuase ther was no reason for me to be on XBL this week. T_T and guess what happens. god talk about bad luck XD -nai- *O.O how do i get a disagree with this. makes no sense*
It's been a while since I had a gold account but I might renew today. I am a nut when it comes to zombie movies or games.
This game is actually pretty freaking good. The music and everything just feels the way i invisioned a horror shooter.
Yeah people knock Valve a lot, mainly PS3 supports (Orange box) and almost rightly so, but they know how to put an experience together. HL2 is still one of the best FPS single player games out there. If not the best. Need a new Engine though, tech wise they've really fallen behind. Still, play CS:S every week though, all about the gameplay sometimes.
YEah I wasn't all into the Valve stuff at 1st but I agree they truly are in my opinion the masters of FPS. It sure would be cool f they made the next Halo.
is there a PC demo? if so, where can I download it?
Looks like I'm going to be busy for the next hour. If it's not that long, I'll just replay it. I've been looking forward to this.
was not that impressed with the vids, but I got a 48hr gold pass with GOW2, so I will d/l it tonight. I read that you can do vs instead of just doing zombies. Hope so because after a while it seemed like it would get boring
that intro was awesome
Just played it through on 360 but i think it would be so much better on pc, like all valves games - so yeah, i'll be getting it on pc. XBL: Death roW247 PSN: DeathroW22
I've played it on both the PC and the 360 and their is almost no difference. The 360 version holds up surprisingly well to the PC version.
oh yeah, anyone wanna play with me, send me a request... gamertag: joydestroy
The demo is fantastic. Any of you who haven't tried it out yet need to give a try. It's so fun. One of the very best co-op experiences I have ever had.
I think its waaaay overhyped.. Dont get me wrong, I just played the demo a few times and i think its very solid its not quite the second coming a lot of gamers are hyping it to be. I just bought COD world at war and that game is AMAZING and deserves way more hype then L4D in my opinion. I see L4D as a solid shooter that will get boring after a month or so. Again, i dont mean to rain on anyones parade lol. I do think its a very solid game and Ill buy it, but i just think there are better games coming out or that are already out that deserve more hype then this game.
I am kind of agreeing with you...
Don't be a hater because ANOTHER great game is ONLY on the 360 and COD WOW is NOTHING next to COD 4
Earwax shouldn't you be in the open zone?
COD WaW amazing? Rofl, alright... Your whole point fell flat with this.
dloading now but its taking 4 ever arghh
Took me between 3 and 4 hours to download it, and I'm using FiOS. There must be a ton of people downloading it for it to take my normally speedy connection that long.
Best games for simulated physics I have ever seen. Fallout 3 and Left4Dead. L4d rabid zombies react perfectly when you melee them or shoot them.
1st off the first thing that hit me was a clipping issue (they need to sort this), do not worry about collision detection with your colleagues, just run straight through them lol. 2nd this game is really fun, the AI is brilliant, you know the zombies are going to run at you but when they do it is still a surprise/shock, I mean they don't just come at you, they freaking hunt you big time, I only played on the easy mode but I will try the hard mode later. 3rd the game does look very good graphically but like I said the clipping really is not acceptable, I suspect this is why there is no PS3 version because if it is a problem on the xbox-360 which is easy to develop for then I guess it was more of a problem with the PS3. I am curious to know why there is no PS3 version because clipping is the only real issue, I just do not know why because it is only with the game charctors and not the zombies.
