Left 4 Dead is "Dastardly Directed": OTG Review

Only the Games writes: "If Half-Life and its sequel spelled the advent of the videogame sense of the cinematic, capturing the filmic while never using its exact form, then Left 4 Dead runs with developer Valve's legacy to uncultivated territory.

Unfortunate for the PS3, methinks.

I'm sure that EA wouldn't miss the chance to churn out a quick and hackneyed port.

Left 4 Dead is a fantastic game. No gamer should miss out a chance to play it.

Kriller5178d ago

Indeed. And it goes to show that they can keep up a single repertoire over crazily different types of game.

Hopefully they'll update that engine EVENTUALLY, though. It works beautifully in L4D though.

This was a great game. The co-op is so fun!

EastCoastSB5178d ago

Are you done playing with it already? lol

El_Colombiano5178d ago
