IGN: Left 4 Dead 2 Second Opinions

its defiantly a good game but I'm undecided as to whether or not it should have been an expansion because with mods you can almost turn
L4D1 into 2 but it dos feel a lot more professional than the mods and its a lot better than the first as far as content gos so who knows?

An expansion pack has less content than the original. Left 4 Dead 2 is everything Left 4 Dead 1 was, plus a whole lot more. More campaigns than the first, two brand new game modes, new cast of characters, new weapons, ammo types, medical supplies, new boss infected, etc.

And a game like Left 4 Dead is kind of hard to make an actual sequel for considering all most of the first campaigns were not really connected in a real story arc. Each was like a separate entity whereas in L4D2, you've got a new batch of survivors trying to make their way from Georgia to New Orleans.

Anyone with half a brain would recognize the game is an amazing sequel. Fanboys just can't get over it.

L4D was a great game and so is L4D2.

Anyone still trying to say it's should have been DLC best avoid buying any sequel to any other game. Ever. Because that's how dumb that whole non-issue has become.
