To be honest, there are so many great games on their way that I literally forget about a few of them every now and then. Just yesterday, I was browsing through a list of games and marking “buy” or “rent” next to them, and then I slapped myself in the forehead when I came to Left 4 Dead. I can’t believe this game is almost here.
Shacknews has posted some impressions from their lengthy play-through of Left 4 Dead’s versus mode, where people get to play as humans, zombies, and everything in between.
Basically, it sounds like versus mode has 4 humans attempting to reach a safe zone while zombies try to munch their brains. After the round is over, the two teams switch sides. Whichever team is able to make it the furthest towards the safe zone wins the round, and then you play it again. And again and again, I’m sure.
To me, playing as a zombie sounds like a blast. Apparently, you spawn in direct view of the humans, only you’re invisible. You can’t actually do anything until you move yourself into a position where you are not visible to the humans, and then you can launch your assault. Sounds terrifying as all get out for the humans, and I’m sure this would be super fun in a LAN setting.
I really think this game falls just under Gears of War 2 in terms of what I’m excited the most for. Who else is for sure grabbing this one when it drops?
