Set in the zombie apocalypse, Left 4 Dead 2 (L4D2) is the highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning Left 4 Dead. This co-operative action horror FPS takes you and your friends through the cities, swamps and cemeteries of the Deep South, from Savannah to New Orleans across five expansive campaigns. Play as one of four new survivors armed with a wide and devastating array of classic and upgraded weapons. In addition to firearms, you’ll also get a chance to take out some aggression on infected with a variety of carnage-creating melee weapons, from chainsaws to axes and even the deadly frying pan. You’ll be putting these weapons to the test against (or playing as in Versus) three horrific and formidable new Special Infected. You’ll also encounter five new "uncommon" common infected, including the terrifying Mudmen. Helping to take L4D’s frantic, action-packed gameplay to the next level is AI Director 2.0. This improved Director has the ability to procedurally change the weather you’ll fight through and the pathways you’ll take, in addition to tailoring the enemy population, effects, and sounds to match your performance. L4D2 promises a satisfying and uniquely challenging experience every time the game is played, custom-fitted to your style of play. [Valve]

L4D2 delivers multiple improvements over its predecessor, and I get to keep all my fingers and toes.1001UP
Left 4 Dead 2 improves on most everything from the first one, while adding enough new levels, Infected types, weapons, and items to give a new experience.96GamingTrend
An undisputable improvement over its predecessor in every way, and it steals its own crown as best co-op game on the Xbox. It’s chainsaw-twirlingly good. [Holiday 2009, p.64]95Official Xbox Magazine
Whichever you prefer, playing versus with friends or cooperatively against the improved Director, there is almost no fault to Left 4 Dead 2.95GameWatcher
This well-crafted sequel takes everything from the original game, adds in some new features and additional variety, and refines the whole package into the new must-play cooperative title.95Gaming Target
A triumph over the first in every way, Left 4 Dead 2 is not to be missed (or boycotted) if you loved the first one.95GamerNode
A masterclass in co-op, level design, first-person shooting mechanics, and even scripting. [Christmas 2009, p.62]95Games Master UK
Left 4 Dead 2 is a near perfect slice of gaming heaven, set in gaming hell.95AceGamez
By no means is L4D2 a reinvention of the series, but with so many welcome additions, it feels close to being the perfection of it.94Planet Xbox 360
L4D2 may be more of the same, but in a thoroughly pleasing sense.93Game Over Online

An amazing hack-n-slash game that truly defines it’s genre. However, only 10 hours in I couldn’t help but to find myself skipping missions and eventually skipped to the last.60Blobman
Don’t like it, just zombie hordes, boring… I played split screen with my friend, so the game play was more fun. still, can’t never played it by myself alone, too boring….50houyi111
Left 4 Dead 2 is pretty much the same as the first one, except for the better wepons and graphics. But other than that its the same. No suspene, no other survivors, and no cutscenes.50Goodtaste13
