Valve has announced the open release of the demo for their upcoming survival FPS Left 4 Dead 2, now available for all on Steam.
No one has anything to say ? hmm...the demo was pretty good .
Sloooooow XBL download. HAd to leave it to come to work. Might try the steam version
Was only looking for this demo on steam a couple of hours ago. It must have gone up straight after i gave up searching haha I'll give it a burst now
I just started mine and its almost done, its going at 1.3MB/s on steam.
Ah ok . You have to love the gore in this game . The frying pan sound is comical when you hit a zombie .
I gave it a go, its actually pretty fun and a ton of new weapons, enemies and stuff to do. I cant wait
The XBL version only took around 20 minutes form me. The steam was a little faster. It's what L4D 1 should have been.
Will give this demo a shot sometime. It'll be my first time playing L4D so I'll see whether or not I'll be buying it.
Well it appears it was comacast playing about. The 1st one was far too short (my gaming length limit is 16hours for various reasons). I rented it and bought the DLC (that took all of 20mins if I stretched it out). I will rent 2 also, as Novemeber is pretty full, gaming wise. (still have to play UC2 on Crushing and level up to 50 on Forza3)
the 360 demo's 1.6 gbs. i'm waiting for mine to finish, i can't wait to try it out.
Nice... this will keep me busy until Modern Warfare 2. I don't have any intention of buying this game. This game should not be $60.
Still confused why anyone would buy games like this for the 360. You're paying 60 dollars for an inferior product. I pre-ordered it through Steam for PC and just like the 1st game it only cost me 45 dollars.
"Available for all" Aww poor ps3 fanboys. How sad :(
I am downloading the demo on my pc right now; didn't realize that this is EXCLUSIVE? A ps3 and a pc are all you need for gaming. Poor bots don't have exclusive no more. :(
Thanks for supporting Left 4 Dead 2. It will be a great multi-player experience. Lets keep this awesome game off the pos3.
LOL poor 360 owners more like ... Reason 1 - Free online Reason 2 - Graphics are better (10x better) Reason 3 - Mods Reason 4 - Only z0mb13's go on fire and not your house Reason 5 - Free updates (and DLC) I like it but i liked the first one also at the start and that turned to sh!t real fast. So i'm gonna skip it until its cheap.
I doubt 1/4th of these guys even have a good gaming PC
Downloading now. OVER 3000!!!!! Megabytes of course.
come back when it goes up another 6000+
Played it, lame, not impressed feel like I played version 1.1 instead part 2, canceling my pre order I was just on GT forums talking about it, most seem to feel the same
You have to be a some kind of super xbox fan to think this game is fun...something about it seems off...the first one was much more fun...and the seems tacked on and not worth it in the end
Whats the point of playing a demo for a game thats not even a change from the 1 year old prequel! This should have been a DLC not full price, well whatever floats your boat for xbots they got nothing else to play.
Good luck fitting this into DLC. The game is much larger than the original.
lol I was just about to say that .
The game is what L4d 1 should have been.
What 6gigs instead of 3?? Enjoy noobs have fun paying for the same stuff over and over again.
Just more proof that idiots like d_dogg talk out of their ass without ever playing the game in question. Saaking - Really? How is that?
The game is a lot better on PC.
True that! The first one was really washed out on the 360 and being the graphics are the same and the 360 is still old tech i doubt its changed! http://uk.pc.ign.com/dor/ar...
I'm disappointed. Graphics are really bad for L4D2 on 360. I don't remember L4D 1 looking so bad. Maybe it was the level or something. I know the PC version would fix the graphics complaint but the levels in the day time lose the suspense. The change is nice but I prefer that it's always in the dark.
I doubt the 360 version looks any worse other than resolution, as I just played the demo on my PC with a 5870 at 1920x1200 max settings, 8xAA, 16xAF and it still looks like crap. Some of the lowest resolution textures I've seen in years.
i thought it looked pretty good. http://i35.tinypic.com/kxk4... you gotta have your setup set to good setting sometimes.
Graphics is not where the game shins...it looks like a last gen xbox game
Just finished the demo and am kinda disappointed. They added in a few bosses and melee weapons and supposedly a new AI system. However, I don't notice the AI is any smarter than the original. Overall my verdict of the demo is that this is not worth 60 bucks.
I wish they just added the guns to the first one, there is like 4 different types of shotgun, 2 types of uzi, 2 pistals, about 10 melee weapons, 5 rifles (M4,AK,Scar,G3,M14) Shame they put them in this one and not the first.
$45 if you grab it on Steam.
just got done playing on steam and its the same as the first plus melee seems like an expansion really
am the only one who sees a average game here.....maybe they should have waited another year
Going by your handle name.........We wonder why you are calling it this..... Anyways its a really fun multi-player game. One of the best i have played.
You would know i am a balanced guy....and i own a xbox, ps3 and wii..you just don't like the truth...this exclusive blows
Awesome, just played it and it was so much fun!
Justify a new game....this is like playing DLC
Oh I see ODST can be full price and no complaints but LFD gets a sequel that's under 50 dollars and you complain about it.
why pre order when u can wait a week after demo release to have everyone able to play it. and those of you that think its funny that ps3 users cant play this, your correct on one thing. but how mnay people do u think have a computer has well as a ps3. yes i have a gaming rig so i get everything micrsoft and sony without buyin the failbox, yes i said failbox cause it fails, fyi those of you happy to mod your box's wont be so happy when MS bans u and u gotta buy a new system. your a digrace to gaming, pay the money to buy or rent it or dont get it period. anyway its a good demo, i think its crap that its available to everyone, give the people who pre ordered the game more perks
it will sell millions despite your hating on it.
It's only 45 dollars for PC and with that 45 dollars will come an endless supply of FREE content extending the product. I thought the demo was a blast. For those complaining about the graphics, deal with it. It's 6 year old engine and still keeps things interesting. Go ahead and play your MW2, I'll be having a blast killing zombies with my friends.
Why is it that only PS3 fanboys are the ones complaining about graphics for this game? Graphics do not make a game. Its the fun factor and game play. Odd also. PS2 fanboys did not talk about GRAPHICS last generation. Be a gamer not a hater people.
Sometimes you guys are like RUSH, Beck and hannity....I cant believe the crap that comes out your mouth to move your own agenda...being the xbox...This game is simply not where it is..
I've played them demo and it's rather good. Not sure if it's worth getting over the first version but I might get this for Xmas.
I checked the game out, was good, raised smiles, challenged me. Next i need to try it with friends.
Hey for $45 and free updates unlike the 360...It's a great buy. I love using stuff like guitars to whack zombies it's so cool!!!
