In November 2008, Valve released Left 4 dead to much critical acclaim. However, it soon became apparent that the title lacked in a few areas, but fans held out for the expected downloadable content that Valve has so commonly released. Valve had different plans and announced in June that they would be releasing a sequel to the popular title, Left 4 Dead 2. The day has finally come for gamers to see what has been added to the Left 4 Dead series, but should they expect this title to just be expansion on the original or is it worthy of being called a sequel?
Left 4 Dead 2 (L4D2) takes four survivors and places them into the southern United States after the outbreak of an infection that creates a variety of zombies. As in the original, players assume the role of one of the survivors as they make their way through a variety of settings that will ultimately have them escaping via car, helicopter, etc. To achieve this goal, players must work alongside their teammates to clear the path to the safe house where you can load the next map in the series in safety. Valve has implemented a variety of weapons, much to my pleasure, that you can use to blow away an assortment of zombies in a spray of blood. All of this further adds to the cooperative gameplay that gamers have experienced in the original, but has been improved in L4D2.
