I have tried this a few time on here already - anyone else fancy a game sometime? My username is 'rainbowbunny' and I am usually on Team Fortress 2 or Left 4 Dead.

Not that I'm on often...

Piss. It's the answer!!"

I've not played Left 4 Dead properly for a while. Had a go the other day and I was definitely rusty.

If anyone fancies a game in the run up the the release of L4D2, then I'll be practising like crazy in September and October.

There is also a new shorter campaign on its way for the original L4D:

Crash Course - The Left 4 Dead Wiki - Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Survivors, Infected, walkthroughs, news, and more

I actually feel really sorry for Xbox gamers as far as the new L4D campaign is concerned. It's quite possible to complete the campaign in 15 minutes without too much strain. Having to pay $7 for it is taking the piss but that's Microsoft for you.

Felt it should have been a bit more 'out there'. it felt very similar to Death Toll in a lot of parts and the finale (which I haven't tried on Expert yet) seems a bit too straight forward.

I'd heard all these promises about being assaulted by a mob after 30 seconds from the start (regardless of how prepared you are) and it appears to all be a lie... :(

L4D is fucking mental. MENTAL! I like it!

It's simply an awesome game. I had quite a team on the go for a while (I probably won't be able to throw them all together again until L4D2 is out). It was epic.

You'll become de-sensitised to zombies playing L4D. The Resident Evil series feels like a piece of piss now.

I really enjoyed Crash Course, but as expected, it was very short. We managed to blast through it in about 30 minutes, however the two maps are quite a bit longer compared to the main campaigns.

It does feel quite similar to Death Toll (it is based just before that chapter afterall), but you can totally tell it is designed for Versus - there's so many cars/objects everywhere designed for playing as the special infected. The perfect example of this is when you fight the tank in the first map and there's cars and dumpsters absolutely everywhere, meaning a tank can take out your entire team in seconds.

I am going to blast through this tonight on Expert and see how things fare - the infected come from bloody everywhere because the maps are so open. I guess we need to play Versus mode a few times to get the most out of this.

Still, I have heard people calling Valve lazy for making this so short, but I think it is a bonus for us to be getting free content for L4D and TF2 at all when they are finishing off L4D2 which is out next month. They obviously put a lot of thought into making this an intense Versus mode map that will have less tendency to have players ragequitting halfway through.

Just bought it on Steam. It better be as good as you're making it out to be. :up:

PROTIP: You can't play this game single player - play online with friends if possible.

Oh, and start on Advanced. :)

Maybe if a fair few of us have L4D on here, a Versus match is in order?

I played this the other day. Holy bejeesus. Brutal or what?!

Crash Course on versus? Yeah, I haven't tried it yet but I've heard it's pretty harsh to try and complete as a survivor. It's very 'infected' friendly.

It was the first thing I thought when I saw the map on campaign mode. Brutal on versus.
