EMPHASIS ON THE “!!!!”
The Left 4 Dead 2 Demo is now out for free of charge on Steam, and features the 5th chapter, The Parish, and 2 levels out of it.
I have already played a fair share of it (I’d say around 3 hours worth), and it’s only a demo! If that doesn’t say anything about how good it is, I don’t know what will.
Surprisingly, the demo includes the ability to play the two levels online with random people, or even with your friends(You should have watched me and my friend playing the game, there was so much yelling and jumping going around)! You also have the option of playing the game by yourself with computer controlled characters, which is less fun than the online capability. The other features that the game will have(like Versus and Scavenge and more) are also displayed, but the permission to play them is not there.
After running through the same two levels almost five times already, I can feel this game will be a success. Each time I play feels like a different game with new people every time, and it doesn’t feel old or redundant at all. I can say one thing, I can’t wait for the game to release. This is a top on my list. Left 4 Dead 2 is set to release on November 17, 2009.
