“Left 4 Dead 2” is the second game out of the “Left 4 Dead” series. It is a first-person-shooter zombie survival game and consists of many different game modes. For example, in campaign mode you have to survive to get to a point. In “Survival”, you must defend you and your team against hordes of zombies. However, if you want to mess with your friends you can try versus. In versus you are put on two teams, zombies and survivors. As a zombie your job is to kill the survivors before they can get to the end point, and as a survivor you must kill the zombies and get to the end point.

Aside from the content that the game offers, it also has good graphics and great maps. The maps are big and consist of places like a swamp, a mall, a city, or even on a skyscraper. At certain points of the campaign maps there are points where there are better weapons and health packs to heal your team. While running through a horde of zombies you can use a melee weapon to slash, stab, and beat the zombies’ heads as blood is sprayed across your screen. Some weapons are better than others and can do a lot more damage ,like the grenade launcher which can be used to kill an entire horde with just one shot.

There are many different types of zombies such as a boomer, which explodes when you get close to it, a spitter, which spits poison at you, or even a charger, which charges at you and downs you instantly. The strongest zombie, known as the tank, is a big overpowered zombie that takes and does a lot of damage, and is normally the final zombie that you must kill. Overall, I think fans of the zombie genre of video games would enjoy this game, for the team-based survival horror is unrivaled.  If you enjoy things such as “The Walking Dead,” then this is the game for you.
