I just played the original Left 4 Dead again for a mod campaign (City 17) and I have to say I like the original more. It just has a better mood, a better pace... I don't know.

L4D2 has far better AI, especially for the specials and the whole gamut of them attacking together is what makes it awesome.

Perhaps. Left 4 Dead has better teammate AI though.

The AI is only one part of the game at the end of the day however. Something about the other aspects makes me favor the original. L4D2 is more "crazy" of that is what you are most focused on, but I don't think that really makes it a better game.

The AI for the survivors is incredibly retarded with the second one. I was being strangled by a smoker, coach was 5 feet away from me. He stood there staring at me for a few seconds, then ran off to help the other bots.

I've encountered many such instances like the above. I can't stand L4D2 single player. The AI for the survivors is incredibly stupid. The AI for them was far greater with the first one.

L4D had a command saying "cover me" which basically locked one of the AI characters onto you. I don't think you have that in L4D2.

The AI for the team-mates, I haven't personally experienced much of that since I usually play co-op. But the enemy AI is pretty good and the fact they co-ordinate well makes it a more satisfying experience.

L4D itself was damn good in it's own way, no doubt

Oh yes- the AI for the infected is incredible. They each do what they're supposed to incredibly well.

However, the AI for survivors has been lowered considerably.

Played with DOC, Smee, and Trivium Nate tonight...after DOC stopped failing, we made it to the end of Dark Carnival. I made it into the chopper, and the horde and a Tank were just outside it. While blasting away at them to keep them at bay, I accidentally hit DOC and he went down.

Then Smee bit the dust near the chopper, and I was the only survivor...once again. Sazar had sent me a message before we got started, telling me to make sure to molotov DOC before he could get into the chopper. What a hilarious coincidence!

I only died because I was trying to save Doc.
