My roommates and I have been playing since Rolsie and Cecily got back from Gamestop with their pre-ordered copy of Left4Dead 2. The game is different, it packs much more puzzling boards, with strategies involving bringing characters back to life with defibrillators, beefing up ammo with incendiary rounds, explosive rounds, laser sights & a slew of new weaponry. First off, we've got new weapons:
There are also new rifle weapons:
Silenced Sub-machine gun (SMG)
The handguns have become more diverse as well:
SIG Sauer P220 Pistol (Can be dual-wielded by picking up a Glock)
Heavy Machine Gun
New Infected Include:

Buy it. Buy it NOW! (We're going to get a second copy tomorrow).
The first Left 4 Dead game was actually pretty incredible. It was released last year, and as a result, the second one coming started quite a controversy.

As well as people complaining that everything included in the game should've just been downloadable content for the first game (but … more
The following game is a definite improvement over the previous game. While I cannot say it is one of the best games on the console, I definitely feel like they are moving in the right direction. Before I go onward, I wanted to state that I am one of the many people who disliked the first game simply because of how lazy the game developers were. They created a game that resembled a minigame and should have been worth $20, not $60. And yes, I am angry that instead of adding … more
Left 4 Dead 2 is the sequel to the best-selling and critically-acclaimed co-op multiplayer smash from Valve, creators of the Half-Life, Portal, Team Fortress and Counter-Strike game properties.

Story Left 4 Dead 2 is set at roughly the same time as the original – just after the outbreak that turned most of the population into various zombie mutants. Players assume the role of four new "Survivors," each with their own personality and new dialog. The game leads these "Survivors" through the southeastern region of the US - from Savannah, Georgia through the bayou country, and climaxing in New Orleans’ French Quarter.
Gameplay Just as with the original Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2 is a first-person shooter which pits players against hordes of zombie-like enemies. As you would expect in a scenario where you are regularly surrounded by masses of the undead, it is very good thing to have plenty of ...
