Hey guys, those who know me know that I'm very harsh or critical of games. I play games for the challenge and to have a good time. I don't play games to goof around and lulz the time away. While reading and then responding to this thread please note to be polite. Most of you WILL disagree with me, i know this, I'm not looking for you to agree but i feel why not get a little bit of a stir or debates going on. I shouldn't have to say but being a staff members of this site i will. This is only MY opinion, not the site, or its staff. *whew* Onward. To say i was disappointed in this demo would be a small understatement. Hated? to strong.. bored out of my mind? more a long the lines of. So i started to play the demo on Normal, about 10 minutes in it was over and i was left with a "eh" taste in my mouth. Between running full speed through the campaign with a silenced sub machine gun.. because its close to ZERO recoil and the fact the zombies only take 1 shot to the head it honestly felt like a 7 year old could play and yes, do well at this game. hell half the time i had one of the many stupid, silly, rediculous weapons out fighting off a horde of zombies. I think i missed the "This is fun!!" bus. So i ran it again, this time on expert (no point in advanced) and left with yet again... a "eh" feeling and *gasp* a feeling reminiscent of HALO which is the.. "Hi!! welcome to expert mode. The AI is no more intelligent, nor does it move any better, but they DO hit hard!.. this is so expert!" Fail.. So i went through the on expert.. however a little slower, but still killing things roughly as fast. easy-expert they all required the same amount of shots. Lame. Seriously games today try to win you over on fluff and not content, L4D2 is another one of those games ***only based on DEMO!!*** Pros: It looks very pretty.. understatement, it looks F'ing amazing. Shooting models is great. shoot a leg.. off the leg, shoot a head, arm, chest etc. all gun. GREAT ragdolls. Lots of weapons. Cons: My list goes to far honestly.. silly secondary weapons. simple/watered down gameplay. very boring, no excitement felt. should have been an expansion. Weapons don't differ enough. shooting is to accurate. difficultly level should raise difficulty. etc, etc I can honestly say I've enjoyed none of this demo. It has nothing that as a gamer "I" want. I want challenging, i want something skilled based, i want to have to think while I play. Sadly this game has none of that. Am I surprised? No, I honestly didn't feel it would be much of a demo, but I had to give it a go. Am I surprised it's as bad as i feel? Yes very much so. Id give it a 2.5/10, hopefully when the game is released it will raise that score by 6 or so. *************BASED ON DEMO ONLY************* keep it civil guys.
