It looks like they beefed up the source engine a bit more, not too surprising. But more importantly i hope they add more depth into the gameplay. After seeing how well the original l4d system worked, i dont know how much more they can possibly add on to it...

You know there are TONS of community made levels available for download right? Alot of them are really well made too.

With the 4 default campaigns and all the community made campaigns/levels, as well as the new survival mode, (also with community made levels) I've definitely gotten my moneys worth out of the first L4D and look forward to the second one.

I haven't seen any that are actually good... I hate vs mode and Survival mode so campaign mode was the only one I cared about. I can only play what the game really supports unless I wana host the server myself... and thats not gonna happen if I expect my friends to have a good gameplay experiance.

http://www.l4dmaps.com/ Is decent but again unless you have a server or host yourself is near impossible to get to play these maps with your friends.

I've probably told you this before, but its not their fault you hate the most replayable part of the game.

Personally, I think L4D is fine. Sure, it could have been cheaper or it could have had more campaigns... but I don't think it needed them.

This sequel seems to have come way too soon though. I would have expected an expansion pack eventually, but not a full priced sequel before the end of the year.

Unless it sucks, I'll buy it, but I'll probably wait till its on sale. If they have a decent preorder deal I might do that.

I was shocked to see this... the trailer started and I was like "no way" and thought it was a rip-off game... then the music started. Wowzers.

Valve has joined the "no expansion, full retail sequel which is basically an expansion!" craze. It is to be expected, but... sucks.

That said, I will buy it day one, as will most L4D fans, and that is why Valve are doing it. It must be worth the money then, my inner capitalist says.

Valve always supports his game, doesn't matter how old, they still bring patches for CS1.6.
And I'm pretty sure Valve will come up with a very good deal. I'm really looking forward to L4D2, more of the same is always better

If only Valve bought out sequels for Half-Life this fast... hell what happened to faster episodic content. Anyways, I'll be getting this day 1, love L4D!

Hope theres some kind of discount for owners of L4D1
