For the uninitiated, the first Left 4 Dead took the survival horror of Resident Evil, and wrenched it into a post “28 Days Later” zombie world. The zombies, or ‘infected’ in Left 4 Dead 2 are no lumbering, groaning shuffling monsters. These are athletic, fast moving beings that dash towards you when they see or hear you. This sequel promises to build on that formula, with new weapons, scenarios and of course… new zombies!
This demo lets you play one campaign, entitled “The Parish” either in one player mode (with three AI companions), or online with four players fighting to survive together. The latter gives you a more dynamic game, but both modes have as much atmosphere, stress and of course blood and gore as anyone could wish for!
