Left 4 Dead 2 has been announced but it's not necessarily a good thing. Gameplayer takes a look at some of the shortcomings of the original Left 4 Dead and what needs to be included in the sequel for gamers to fork out their hard-earned cash.
"It wasn't so long ago that Left 4 Dead fans were getting excited about the prospect of a decent chunk of (free) DLC. Dubbed the Survival Pack, the downloadable content granted a new lease on life to the undead shooter, which was starting to get a bit stale. Don't get us wrong, we love the game and were addicted for quite a while, but it was rather limited in its multiplayer options upon release. Single-player was basically an extended training mode, cooperative play could become a frustrating affair if shared with dickhead players and Versus mode only supported two of the four campaigns. On that note, the very limited content of the campaign acted as a deterrent to replayability, despite the addictive nature of the game and the dynamic flavour added by the ever-meddling Director overlord."
