Good excuse to play it again for me. I assume you're gonna get L4D2 asap in November?

Of course!  It comes out the day after my birthday!

never played the first one, but I tried the demo for the sequel tonight. it's pretty fun, although very linear. I was a bit disappointed that it was darker and grittier. I was expecting a lot more gore, crawling through narrow dark passages and shitting my pants from getting scared. maybe the two demo levels just don't represent the rest of the game very well, but being a demo and all.... they probably do.

it's more of a shooting game that's definitely meant to be played with friends. you are correct that it is linear, but it's still a very fun series. nothing like RE2 or Silent Hill, if that was what you were expecting.

I played with my roommate and a friend of his and the shouting and weak attempts at some sort of tactics was indeed fun. but yes, I kinda expected a little more shock value and more alternating calm/hectic moments.

After screwing around on 4 vs. 4, and random vs. matches, I feel a little let down with Left 4 Dead 2's online play. Survivors are at an extreme disadvantage, and in both the "ranked" play and public randomness, the point of the game was to run as fast as possible to the safe room, while leaving team mates behind, looking for nothing, and dragging your sorry wounded ass across the map. Those were either friend matches  (races) or the team we ripped apart for not sticking together and ruining the rounds.  Now it seems to be expected. I know it's early, but there are teams slaughtering out there, but using the weakest, fastest, sloppiest gameplay possible and they're owning everyone. If this is how L4D is evolving, it just doesn't feel right.

been watching my friend play some vs matches now and it looks like ridiculous fun, although survivors seem to have a pretty hard time.

I'm still contemplating wether to buy the game or not. it's perfect relaxation on a weeknight after work and stuff, but I'm just not sure I'm gonna enjoy it for more than a week or two.

It's definitely worth it.  The versus matches are fun, if not completely different and harder, but overall the game is sweet.

That's kind of disappointing, but I mostly played the co-op campaigns with my buddies anyway in the first one. But with the original Vs mode, from my experiences the survivors had a little advantage. And I believe you about it being the opposite with L4D2 because of all the damn new zombies they've got. Maybe in L4D3 it'll all be perfect. I still can't wait to play this one though.

It's still a great game. Just seems that now the runners have the only advantage. Once I get used to it I'll find ways around this, but until then it keeps it from being as great as the first.

I play L4D2 a lot on PC, one of my most played games actually. Think I have between 350 and 400 hours played. Have not played the first one though, but from what I understand the versus mode has less special infected? (Versus mode is what I play the most)

I really hope there will be a L4D3, but it doesn't feel likely considering HL3 hasn't even been made yet.
