disappointing. The game feels unfinished. There needs to be more than 4 levels. I thought that I was getting a good deal when I payed $24.99 for l4d, but if no new levels are in the works and a sequel is already in the pipeline I think I may have been ripped off:(. That said, what little is included in the l4d campaign is fantastic.
The competitive multiplayer leaves a lot to be desired. It can best be summed up with this flow
chart. Whats worse is when you play the through on the winning side only to be switched by the server onto the losing team at the end of the level.
The survial mode is a nice addition. It is a game mode that can be enjoyed if you do not have enough time to invest into a complete gaming session.
I enjoyed listening to the developer commentary under the "extras" tab. I found it facinating how they developed the director AI. I also found it interesting that the music used in game is also personalized. This is the first FPS in a long time that encouraged me not to turn off the music after a few hours of play and replace it with my own. The audio in general is almost required to play well in the higher difficulties.
