Left 4 Dead 2 - Demo Impressions

Left 4 Dead 2
PC/Xbox 360
Developer: Valve
Publisher: Valve
Release Date: November 17, 2009

  Left 4 Dead 2 will have a public demo up later in the week but for the fans that reserved their copy, one was released a week in advance. I captured some snippets of my playthrough trying to highlight the new features, enemies, and weaponry. I still did not capture a few things:

  • Boomer Bile is now a weapon similar to the pipebomb. You toss is into a group or at a tank and all the horde aims for whatever it hits. A nice distraction piece.
  • The magnum pistol is shown at the end but never used, this pistol holds 8 rounds and is extremely powerful but extremely slow.
  • The adrenaline shot speeds you up, allowing you to move through hordes without being slowed down for a short time.
  • The defibrillator subs in place of the medpac, allowing you to revive dead teammates. A very handy tool.
  All in all, this game feels like a sequel and not much like the original. I highly await the new Realism and Scavange modes, but if these two levels are anything like the rest of the game we can expect an incredible experience.
(Played on PC - Campaign Single/Multiplayer, Normal and Expert)
