Mac|Life recently posted a new review of Valve Software's Left 4 Dead 2. In the zombie filled action sequel players once again attempt to survive against hordes of undead with the help of a few friends. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 4.5 out of 5.

From the review:

This is a survival title through and through, and the game never lets you forget it. The Director (the gameís artificial intelligence) keeps you on your toes with varied waves that come from almost any direction. Perhaps the best example of this is the use of special Infected units that can attack you from a distance, pull you across the map, maul you, scatter the group, and vomit substances that either burn your character or signal large groups of the undead to attack you. If you think you can defend a certain area or structure, the Director has a way to disrupt this and will do its best to do so.

Itís the groups that work together that actually survive in Left 4 Dead 2ís multiplayer mode, in which you fight through the levels together. Multiplayerís variations include Scavenge (where you must stay alive while gathering gasoline for a generator), Mutation (where every special Infected will be a colossal Tank unit that can only be brought down by multiple players), and Realism (where the undead are that much harder to kill, and accidental friendly fire hurts that much more). Throughout multiplayer, groups will have to quickly shift strategies together if a current one isnít working. Lone-wolfing it proves more dangerous than working together, and youíll have to think of the groupís needs before your own to make it.
