Left 4 Dead Review (

Your character in Left 4 Dead dies much of the same way that protagonists die in previous games in the genre. Zombies come out of nowhere, jump on you, and blood comes gushing out, which can be scary if this is the first "zombie shooter" you have ever played in your life. If you're reading this article though, we're pretty sure that you've played them all. The zombies die the same, you die the same, your partners die the same. Everything is just (*sigh) the same.

Don't totally agree with this review, but good nonetheless.

Ambivalent with this review. Good read overall though.

Personally I tried the L4D demo and it didn't get me all excited. But this review sounds kinda weird. I mean he compared it to the RE series. In the reviewer's own words:

"Left 4 Dead plays almost identical to Resident Evil. Not only does it play like the earlier game, but it looks almost identical to it also."

I mean I've played both and Resident Evil's gameplay is wayyyyy different. In the early RE games, it was usually puzzles and some gunplay. In RE4 there was a lot of gunplay but still a bit slow-paced compared to shooters. But L4D is a very fast paced shooter. I would rather compare it to Unreal Tournament 3 and it's against AI controlled zombies instead of people.

Maybe he was referring to RE5 which does resemble a bit more but it's still a much more slower paced gameplay than L4D.

Weird rating system. They use a dice lol. I bet they roll for each game and give it that score. "Holy shiz! Gears 2 rolled a 1!!" XD
