IGN: Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 Compared

IGN writes:

"Believe us, we could write all day about Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2, and we have. Whether it was our huge E3 preview of L4D2 or our recent look at some of the new user-made maps for L4D. Valve's zombie franchise is a lot of fun to play.

But we're also aware that there's a lot of curiousity about Left 4 Dead 2 because much about the game has yet to be revealed. So we've condensed down a quick comparison chart to highlight the differences in the two games."

pandomobile... your full of crap... its not only the same half life 2 engine... with the same code... its also the same gameplay code from physics to move ment.... to weapons... all based off the same stuff... left 4 dead is like 20 -30 percent more then hl2 id say... given an EDUCATED guess. ... sorry i posted this under the wrong person reply...

They forgot to add:
Left4Dead: 5-years-old engine.
Left4Dead 2: the same 5-years-old engine.

And that's the main reason whiners complained about Left4Dead not being a sequel, Valve didn't even make the effort to evolve just a bit. You still have the feeling to play Half-Life 2, Source Engine is seriously getting old.

The L4D Source engine is completely different than what we got in HL2.

95% of the code has been re-done to keep up with modern systems.

Ah whats the problem about the same feeling as Half Life 2? its great game and i love it, i wouldnt mind the same feeling, but i do agree they need to go a different route with the graphics even TF2 direction would be awesome.

They also forgot that there are 3-4 new infected types.

And pathway changes depending on how good/bad your playing.
Weapon/health upgrades for those who go a longer/more dangerous route
And I think random weather changes too?
Finales involve getting from A to B rather than finding a defensive spotnd waiting out a rescue vessel.
Triggers that require some sort of action by you before the hoarde ceases.
They are also going more for a actual storyline this time.
