    Source.

    Not surprised really, still think the game is over-hyped though.

    It is. But it is still pretty fun.

    When I played the first L4D it was awesome and I even played it all day long it when I got for Christmas. After a while it does get stale and boring each time you try to play it. L4D2 is just nothing but new maps, weapons, and even new enemies; for 49.99 a pop I will rather just wait for the price to go down. Sucks for the people who bought SF4 for the Xbox360/PS3 while the Super Street Fighter 4 is coming out next year.

    For me, that's disheartening news. I absolutely loved the first game, but Valve never truly lived up to their word with respect to support for the game. The last-minute attempts made to satisfy fans before the release of the sequel just wasn't enough for me. This type of support just reaffirms that they can pretty much bend people over, frisk them for $60, and then walk off without so much as a kiss...actually, that's not entirely true. Newell gave many kisses out to fans, but that was only before he gave them a good schtooking. [​IMG]

    The first one was awesome. I mean... Bill? He's awesome. And Louis and his PILLZ addiction? And Francis, that hates everything?

    Every character was awesome (maybe except Zoey), but I can't find anything special in the L4D2 guys. Dunno, but I'm probably gonna continue playing L4D1. I mean, I LOVE playing as Bill [​IMG]

    L4D2 = Most hyped and rushed game on the year.

    I really didn't see anything new, ok melee weapons, new zombies, other than that nothing that stands out. Should have included some other things that stand out.

    I can think of 6 other games with a certain 'Hero' in the title released just this year that were more hyped and even more rushed that L4D 2.

    At least Left 4 Dead isn't a cash cow... yet [​IMG]

    True True. But this one stands out the most, at least the others didn't give me that feeling of being let down as much as L4D2 did.
