Left 4 Dead 2 is a great follow up to the Left 4 Dead video game.  Four new characters, new weapons, new melee weapons, new zombies and new settings really up the ante.  Even on the “Normal” setting, this game is hard.

The graphics on the “regular” zombies are even better.  You can still blow off arms and heads, but you can also blow holes in torsos and cut dead guys in half.  I found it hard to use the melee weapons and stuck mainly to the guns, either by firing them or using the butt.

The game is more dynamic, with ledges for zombies to fall off, fires to avoid and a not-so-obvious maze of doors and rooms that changes depending on how many times you play it.  Online modes are back too and with the new zombies, there are more choices.  There’s also a player vs. player mode as well as the split screen and single player mode.  The game is mainly designed for multi-player and it’s really hard to get through the mall by yourself.

If you liked the first game, you’re going to love the follow up.  I give it 10 out of 10 keggers.  Too much zombie killin’ fun, bros!
