Left 4 Dead: First Impressions
 
I hope this is in the right spot.

After about 20 hours of playing the demo, I'm highly impressed with it. I had no interest in the game until a person in Steam chat mentioned how good it was, so I scammed the Gamestop site to get into the demo.
I Started off playing through it on normal on my own, what a mistake it was really really boring and easy. I eventually ended up playing on expert with Monkey and Asharp.
Heck I sucked really bad but had a ton off fun, I tended to run ahead and yeah.... or teamkill accidentally. The next night I had the hang of it, and it was even funner.
Now I have an idea of what's going to show up but never when or where, every play through is different, sometimes the ai director feels like being an ass so when you get caught by a smoker a hunter leaps on you and massacres you.
Like the time me, Linus, Tyson, and sharp ( or Perjah) saw a w itch to the right on the second to last room so we went left and a tank came down through the hole and went after us, me, Tyson, and Perj died and Linus finished it off but heck it was fun and hard not trying to alert the witch. I swear half of the fun is getting your ass handed you as you go through the level. I also was able to try the versus mode, It's even funner and I can't wait to try the correct one.
I'd give this initial impression a 10/10

Feed back is always appreciated, yeah i didn't really write it in a paragraph style though.

The demo is one map with three sections: The apartments, subway, then I think it was hospital or something.

But yeah, I had tons of fun playing it. :haha: Theres only one map, but its still fun.

Left 4 Dead has to be one of the biggest ground-breaking games this year...depending on how this and Mirror's Edge turns out in final reelase, one of the two should be my own personal "game of the year"...I cannot wait to see how the AI director works in Half-Life2: Episode 3...

Dammit Dave, 20 hours? I'm only at 18.7 hours.

The game is great though in my opinion the survivor AI should be a little less passive. The game is so much better when playing online since you do need to deal with aforementioned AI.

Yeah, I'm only at 17.5 hours. You play way too much. =P

And as mentioned...this game was made for multiplayer. Single player is pretty weak but multi...wow. Hours of fun even on two measly maps.

It's a pretty fun game although some people (op) keep running in front of other people who are firing! :O
