Default Re: Official Left 4 Dead 2 Thread

I played last night with 2 friends in Dead Center advanced, and couldn't get to the finale. We were always killed in the 3rd map. Too many hordes, we got to the alarm part and we were raped several times here. I guess we need 4 players (bot is sooo stupid) to beat this zone.

Loving the game btw

It was tough beating that on normal - we still got beat to heck.

You were right about that "censored version" issue I had btw. All is good now.

Glad that worked for you - this game is just too much fun to deal with crap like that.

Awesome screens LT!!!

Dude, Dead Rain was awesome. Those storm effects were absolutely amazing coming from the Source engine. I was just blown away.

Too bad we could beat the bridge ending to Parish.

We finished Dead Center last night, 3 and a bot. Took about 4 tries. The other guys didn't get the "I'll toss the gas cans down, you guys fill the car" and they would run off and get killed or grabbed. But we finally got it.

Made it through Dead Center on Expert last night, finally! Trick is to just keep moving through the mall (and avoid shooting each other, which we tend to have trouble with...), trying to stop as little as possible. The finale was easy compared to getting through the mall, but still totally awesome. Of course, we then spent almost two hours on the next campaign and couldn't even get past the first level .

Joystiq posts a negative review because the game is too hard and more frustrating than fun:

Quote:
I played the game both pre- and post-release with six different gamers, all of whom had experienced the original (and some of whom were really good at it). Playing on Normal difficulty, we were unable to beat a single campaign before opting to readjust the difficulty to Easy. On Easy, we still took quite a licking, in two cases deciding to just quit. A typical campaign in Left 4 Dead 1 would take approximately an hour to run through and, while individual players often died, all four players rarely went down at the same time. In Left 4 Dead 2, on Normal difficulty, that's an obnoxiously common occurrence.
The game is harder, but it is far from that hard. I have completed 3 campaigns myself on normal with the retarded AI, so... yeah.

Well, when you play with the AI characters, the game is not always straightforward

The AI in the demo look like they just stepped off the short bus. Too bad methim is not among them. His "uncle" picked him up from school that day.
