Left 4 Dead Coming Back

Left 4 Dead Mac Boot Camp

Remember Francis, Bill, Zoey and Louis from Left 4 Dead? We don’t know if they all survived a series of horrifying zombi attacks last year. All we know is that the game will be back by the end of this year!

According to the game developer, Valve Corporation, they are currently working on Left 4 Dead 2. Again, this time, there will be four survivors with or without original ones, which we are not sure of. The game developer also says that there will be new melee weapons available, which are axe, chainsaw, frying pan and baseball bat.   Continue reading

Left 4 Dead – Game Review, Playing Left 4 Dead with Mac Boot Camp

Left 4 Dead Mac Boot Camp
Mac game review
MacHouse game rating: 8.5/10

Left 4 Dead is an interesting action/horror game published by Electronic Arts. Electronic Arts released the game in North America in November 18. Left 4 Dead was developed by Valve Corporation, the game developer of the hit game series Half-Life.

It’s a game where you fight zombies. If you watch the introductory cinematic video of the game, you will find out that something must have happened two weeks before. Some sort of an infection has transformed people into zombies. It sounds like this game is inspired by 2002 horror movie 28 Days Later…. If you play the single-player game, you will control one of the four characters (Bill, Francis, Louis and Zoey). You can choose any of them, and other characters will assist you.

By the way, there aren’t many PC/Mac games involving zombies, are there? The only game that I can remember is Stubbs the Zombie. Austin/Texas-based company Aspyr Media released the game for both Mac and PC on November 21, 2005. Left 4 Dead is totally different from Stubbs the Zombie, though. As I remember, the guy you control in Stubbs the Zombie can heal himself at any time by eating people’s brains. In Left 4 Dead, you use a first aid pack, which isn’t always available. And the crucial difference is that you play the zombie in Stubbs the Zombie and fight ordinary people.  Continue reading

The question is how are they going to be rescued this time. There is no lake or air field. Perhaps, it will be a helicopter again that will come to pick them up? Anyway, I can tell you that three of them will manage to escape. And one of them won’t make it.  Continue reading

The following QuickTime movie is a game play video of Left 4 Dead, which is one of the latest games that have been published by Electronic Arts. Left 4 Dead was developed by Valve Corporation, the game developer of the hit game series Half-Life.

The last two Left 4 Dead game play videos are quite fun to watch at least for me. This one is not so good. The game play is quite simple and lasted for 13 minutes and 30 seconds or so. Anyway, Francis, Bill, Zoey and Louis arrive at an airfield where they witness an airplane crash in flames.

How are they going to escape this time? Considering where they are now, it won’t be a fishing boat for sure. By the way, this game play video comes from the final chapter (Runway Finale) of the Dead Air campaign. Let’s hope all of them will manage to escape this zombie nightmare. Maybe, not…  Continue reading

Our last Left 4 Dead game play video covered the final chapter (Rooftop Finale) of the No Mercy campaign where Francis, Bill, Zoey and Louis had to go to the rooftop of a hospital building to be rescued by a helicopter.

This game play video comes from the last chapter (Boathouse Finale) of the second campaign (Death Toll). They’ve ended up in a quiet residential area. Eventually, they will reach a lakeshore and have to call for a rescue team. This time, they won’t be picked up by a helicopter. Perhaps, it’ll be a military plane?  Continue reading
