If you’ve been thirsting for a new Left 4 Dead game, Turtle Rock Studios has your back. Back 4 Blood is shaping up to be the sequel you’ve been waiting for in all but name – and even that comes eerily close.
I loved Left 4 dead, but after an hour or so i got really bored of back 4 blood, i dont know, maybe left 4 dead is better in my memory than it actually was but something is missing in b4b that gets me excited to play the full version! Its so calm, and quiet somehow, the zombies are boring and do not feel like a threat, the special zombies are boring as well, big, boring useless zombieboss fights, i still remember the first time i came across a witch in l4d, hol shit that was scary, but in b4b its the typically the bigger the better mentality it seems, this should be a scary, gory, horror coop shooter but it actually is a boring try to reproduce a left 4 dead experience, i am really sad :(
Even with the card system I was beyond bored, I [WANT] co-op type games & only per run can you grab a card slot that Improves something by 5%. Also, it didn't need pvp imo -_- absolutely squandered resources on dumb things, also the spray unlocks, instead of spending time on artwork for sprays make zombie models terrifying.
I just thought, "I've played this 10 years ago!"
I'm glad I played the alpha. I had every intention of buying this game but this saved me 60 quid. I was bored within an hour and I'm just not feeling it. Just going to get Battelfield now instead
I played for about an hour & a half late Saturday night & it was fun but nothing spectacular or anything new in the genre. It's basically an average co-op shooter zombie game.
B4B is ok but to me the zombies are just generic looking with L4D and L4D2 you have cop zombies, construction worker zombies, zombies in rubber suits, hospital patient zombies with night gowns on. I have to wait for the other people to enter the safe room before I can crack the door open or open the orange box and that depends how long the other players lag for or if they are taking a break. L4D I can crack the door open right away and the specials are just memorable like the Jockey humping your head leading you every where, the Boomer spewing on you, the Tank, the Witch, the Smoker, the ugliness of the Spitter, the Charger, even the Hunter are all memorable. The specials in B4B are just not that memorable compared to L4D I would get the game but I am not paying $80 new for the game I think I might just pass on B4B and continue with L4D maybe an old game but its memorable. Hell in L4D it was always funny and still is funny locking the Tank in the safe room with other people in there you can't even do that in B4B. To me B4B is just a spiritual successor to L4D that is just a generic copy of L4D I wish Valve would get off their ass and make L4D3 I would buy that day one. Only thing B4B has going for it is the crossplay that's it I am just going to pass on the game.
