Best MMO 360 game,
This review is from: Left 4 Dead - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
*NOTICE* I only play online with this game. If you truely want to get the "meat n potatoes" of this game then you have to play it online in versus mode.
Ive owned this game since december and played it untill about april nonstop untill the dlc came out, now im back to playing it nonstop all over again.
This game is compeletely a team work game and if you dont work together as a team then you will get you A$$ easily handed to you online. Make sure you dont split up or wander to far away from each other. If you do make sure your in teams of 2 so it makes you harder to be attacked.
The survival mode was awesome at first, but the leader boards were quickly swamped with unreal times from people glitching and getting over 4000 mins on saome levels, which is frankly impossible. It is extremely fun though to play with your friends and see how good you really are and how long you last.
The new maps are awesome been playing them pretty much non-stop everyday for a few hours after work. Death toll has some great spots to high pounce from (extra damage with a hunter when your jumping down ontop of them.) While death toll adds a level where your both inside and out unlike the other maps.
The updates. A few of the updates give me mixed feelings such as the melee timer. While it is very annoying not being able to smack the zombies off when your being swarmed it does make you use more stragety when you do. It promotes team play better because 1 person cannot just go running and smacking all the zombies outa his way anymore (gotta hate those "halo run-and-gun F everyone else" players.) Also taking away the extra damage you do as a hunter on fire kinda sucks, it just made it alot easier to do massive damage to players instead of just being shot or bashed off easily. The smoker instant kill points i feel should have remained as well because it was part of the orginal design of the game. It made playing with the smoker alot more rewarding considering the smoker doesnt do nearly the same amount of damage as a hunter can.
-p.s: When you do buy this game and plan on playing online, please make sure you have a headset. TRUST ME there is nothing more annoying than a teammate that cannot communicate and it will usually get you kicked out of most games and/or lobbies.
