Left 4 Dead Demo Hits the Marketplace
Written By

Good news everyone, the Left 4 Dead demo is officially on the marketplace! The demo clocks in at 1.2 GB, so be prepared to download for a bit depending on your internet speed.

Set in a modern day survival-horror universe, the co-operative gameplay of Left 4 Dead casts four "Survivors" in an epic struggle against hordes of swarming zombies and terrifying "Boss Infected" mutants. 

Give the demo a shot, and let us know what you think of it via comments.

About time! Now I can finally get a first hand opinion on whether to get this game or not.

Some factors look fantastic, others not so. I can imagine that the first time you face a swarm of zombies with three other capable team-mates will be awesome though.

That reminds me, is the demo online?

Just played it... Think it's abit amateurish. Seems more like a PS1 game than a Next-Gen game. Might be abit of fun with coop, but that's about it. I doubt i'd pay full price for it.

I don't really 'get' this game...

Wasn't as fun as I expected.
I could see it being a laugh, but nothing's scary when it takes a single bullet (of 500-odd) to kill it.

For those who keep asking, the demo has 4-player co-op over Live. And I must say, this game is amazingly fun, probably the most fun I've had with friends since I got my 360 a couple years ago.

I played it and was none too impressed. Hopefully, they will tweak the difficulty (1 hit kills!! WTF??) and tighten up the graphics. They are kinda shit.

And where are the guy's legs/feet?? I hate being a floating head, arm and gun with nothing to support me. It's upsetting for my fragile little mind.

BigApple3AM, i suppose you have studied zombies then, theyre behaviour, eating, migration, mating patterns? for you to know enough that zombies cant run.

And, this game is awesome, killing zombies is a favourite pastime and ive been waiting since Dead Rising to do it again (cocks a shotgun).

@74: Romero rules state that zombies don't run. And they certainly don't mate.

Dead Rising is my favorite 360 game, but this one might just take the cake.

i think the running zombies are a lot better, they seem more realistic as they are not halted by fatigue, they not using oxygen as theyre (un)dead obviously, as stated in the zombie survival guide(highly recommended). they are reminicent of i am legend and 28days/weeks later zombie which are much better than the crawling flesh deviod beasts of yester year i feel.

Dead Rising was such a big let down, finally the great zonbie game that the 360 deserves!

I just played my first game on Advanced. It was bloody brilliant! I love it! Although I'm a bit sceptical about the replay value of it if there's only 4 campaign levels....

@ 81
The Zombie Survival Guide rocks, but you dont.

This game calls their "zombies" infected, not zombies.
28 Days/Weeks later were not zombies either, they were humans infected with rage.
The kicker here is that I Am Legend was full of vampires, not zombies.

But onto the demo.
I think this has to be my favorite game ever. EVER.
I played it on the easiest setting just to run through it quickly before heading to the movies, and I had a blast.
I assume because I had it on easy that the computer AI helped more than they normally would because more times than not the special infecteds were killed before I even saw them.
The tank was a badass though.
Cant wait to play the retail version though.
