One Paragraph Review: Left 4 Dead

by Meghan Watt


Mowing down endless waves of the undead seems like a pastime that one can only enjoy for so long. Valve, however, avoided plots, cheap scares and the other messy goodness that games like Resident Evil provide. Left 4 Dead proves that teamwork alone (whether with friends or those people you pretend to know on Xbox Live) can lift zombie-slaying to a realm I call “Eternal Awesome”. With four riveting co-op campaigns, human vs. zombie multiplayer, and a handful of uniquely infected foes, Left 4 Dead offers thrills and chills for gamers and non-gamers alike.
