Can someone tell me If L4D is worth the purchase ?

I only really mainly play Combat Arms, CS:S, Garrys mod, and RS Vegas .
Worth the purchase ?

Well only you can make that choice lol, but it is a great game. Though this is a co-op shooter like some of the other games you're playing, it is quite different. For one thing you're not getting shot at (except by your own team if they suck, or by the smoker if you can call him lashing you with his tongue being shot at).

Even in versus mode you're up against players playing the horde bosses (hunters, boomers, smokers and tanks).

Survival mode is a laugh to... hordes and hordes of... ummm... hordes of undead and bosses.

I love CS:S and TF2, and I love this game.

It comes up on special on Steam fairly often and it's very fun game, I say go for it next time you see it on special.

not paricularly.

I find the survival mode quite unsatisfying. I haven't tried all the maps, but on the ones I have tried, it is absurdly easy to get a gold medal.

I'm still playing vs a hell of a lot though, DA is excellent fun.

Left 4 Dead is going to be completely free supposedly according to this website for 24 hours.

I love nearly everything about L4D, its just such an amazing game.
I know some people might disagree but I think there should be a bigger range of Weapons/Attaking. I realised they covered pretty much what you need in terms of weapons, but it would be great if you could make use of scenery, where you could shoot the gastank of a car and it would explode, or destroying fire-hydrants which would fend of zombies for a short while etc, use your imagination =D
Different types of zombies would be nice too.
Also, as many people say, not enough campaigns haha.

Other than that, 10/10.

Zwaig`lulz on steam.

Personally I found it got old pretty fast... I mean, it's good times and all when you start, just sorta gets predictable semi-quickly.

As for the nazi zombies comment from somewhat earlier in the thread - hellz yeah. Loved that. Ya know you're gonna loose, but you try like hell anyway.

Would be a good idea to have a "This is Spam" button for posts, or some kind of +1 -1 'I like/dislike' it kind of thing.
