Review Acer Aspire 5536G Notebook

Review: Left 4 Dead 2


When Valve announced a sequel to Left 4 Dead mere months after the first game's release, a lot of fans cried foul. We were looking forward to Valve supporting the game for a while and also, maybe working on Half-Life 3. But fast forward to November...

More melee weapons ; Zombie-killing mayhem still intact ; Updated crescendo events

Where’s Half-Life 3 ; Characters are kinda bland

Left 4 Dead


Zombie apocalypses seem to be pretty popular these days. Most of these movies involve a band of survivors working their way to a safer area while battling out with brain eating creatures. This sounds like it would make a great game doesn't it? In comes...

Just like on the PC, the 360 version of Left 4 Dead is just immensely fun to play. Whether you go on the hunt or are the hunted, Left 4 Dead will leave you wanting more every time you finish a campaign.

Valve Software's newest game,

Finally we come down to it: What is the best value in a video card right now, for Left 4 Dead? As much as we hate to sound like a broken record, we must give credit where credit is due, so we have to give the nod to the original, 192-shader NVIDIA...

Consumer review by:

Great update to a modern classic.


Nice update to L4D. Additional zombie types, weapons and melee items make the zombie slaying feel fresh again. Felt a little more like an update than a whole new game though.
