Light a tank on fire and he will be dead within 40 seconds. Light him on fire and shoot him, and he will be dead in less. If you're all at full health, burn him and run away.

Apparently it still works (if you can find it) if you just run the L4D.exe from the folder.. Not sure how much truth there is to this though.

It's funny how from Steam L4D is £20 and for the 360 on play.com it's £39.99!

i bought this game yesterday because of the 25% off special but i am really disappointed

1. on campaign as long as your team stick together you can NEVER die, and it just ends up being one slow moving and mindlessly shooting zombie game

2. the only gun i found useful was the smg and the auto shotgun. the rest are useless. why the hell is there a sniper rifle in the game. who would camp when you can't stay in one position

3. you have NO way of going solo, i know its a multiplayer game but you can't, AT ALL. if your teamates are imbeciles then you have no way of completeing anything

4. it is not scary, AT ALL. this is subjective, but i'll state it anyways

5. versus has serious issues:
a. stated before, if the team stick together the infected has no way of winning (unless they are complete morons)
b. taking turns to be infected? comon... i am sure no one wants to play survivors when you can be the INFECTED!
c. infects does way too little damage
d. tank spawning is screwed up, you get like 20secs to control tank but you are spawned the other side of the freaking map

6. its repetitive. there i said it. they try to make it dynamic by using their so called 'director AI' to spawn zombies in 'intelligent' locations to 'enhance' the gameplay. but it just ends up being shoot whereever you go. and oh only 4 maps, i finished all 4 in less than 2 hours.

7. poor value. i bought it on special but reg $49.99 is very steep for such a repetitive game. tf2 is only $19.99 and $10 sepcial and it is way better (but i guess i can't compare apples and oranges)

8. this game requires no tatics. none. just shoot and you'll be fine. its better if you are playing infected, but you only get to be it for so long because you die in 2 shots.

however i'll look like a complete jerk if i don't say what's good about this game:

1. it's excellent if you like to slaughter wave after wave of mindless zombies
2. it's multiplayer so you don't feel alone
3. the graphics are great considering the outdated engine
4. great sound 'director'

but i guess it all comes to this: this game doesn't scare me
and that's why it probably failed on me because it's the theme of the game and i don't know how to appreciate it.

subjectively i give this game 6/10
objectively it should be around 8/10

but hey i guess no body cares what i think right?

personally I don't like having the *** scared out of me when I play (like dead space) this game is great for people like me

with that said I need some more maps like 20 instead of 4

You obviously havent played on expert.

The hunting/sniper rifle imo is the best gun in the game since you can mow down an entire horde with one mag because it shoots through everything. I consistantly have higher kill counts than everyone I play with using the sniper rifle.

Well, it's a multiplayer game. Can't fix stupid (ie bad teammeates)

You need to play on expert. And it can be repetitive, but if you don't like shooting zombies, you dont like shooting zombies.

I paid $45 and it's the best PC game I've played in years.

It requires tactics in the form of teamwork

Doh. Contradiction?

The game wasn't meant to be scary by the way, at least from what I can tell. They never marketed it like a dead space kind of game, I (along with most others) just saw a zombie massacre game.

Now that I sound like a fanboy I'll be fair.

The versus is a little considerably uneven (even more so now that you can't play it on any difficulty other than normal) but if the infected work together killing the survivors isn't a problem. This entire game is about Co-op which also explains why you shouldn't be able to beat it by yourself. That was the entire point of L4D, you're supposed to be required to work together with your 3 team mates to get the job done.

The replay value was at first low for me until I decided to start playing through all the campaigns on expert. That's what really hooked me into this game, not versus mode.
