Left 4 Dead is the latest release from Valve, the makers of the legendary Half-Life series of games and the equally as important Counterstrike titles. The mandate of this title is simple, to redefine the cooperative genre in the same way their previous franchises affected the current wave of Multiplayer and single player games. In a bid to keep the Zombie genre on the straight and narrow this modern day survival-horror universe alongside innovative co-operative game-play, this game will leave you breathless between the swathes of zombie attacks. Left 4 Dead casts you as one of four 'Survivors' in an epic struggle against hordes of swarming zombies and terrifying 'Boss Infected' mutants.

Valve?s next generation AI technology, allows for games of 1 to 8 players. Players can play as a Survivor or as one of four types of 'Boss Infected, ' each of whom possess a unique mutant ability such as a 50-foot tongue lasso or a giant belly full of explosive methane gas.
The game-play takes place across four massive campaigns. The 'zombie' population of each mission is choreographed by an 'AI Director' that monitors the human players' actions and creates a unique and dramatic experience for them on the fly.
With a massive amount of work having gone into the online element of this title it's fair to say that Left 4 Dead is on track to be an elite multiplayer experience unlike any you've experienced. Just make sure you work as a team, and ensure no-one's Left for Dead.
