When zombies attack

There has been much wailing and knashing of teeth about the sequel to zombie-em-up Left4Dead being due for release only a year after the release of the first one, but now that Valve has released a couple of videos onto YouTube, we can safely say that it’s going to be completely ace. Take a little look-see.

This first vid is the first 12 minutes of the game, and has you starring as a poor group of human left behind by a chopper, with the only way out of the mess you’ve been plonked into being to fight your way through a hotel, with some ace double pistol action. The combat looks fantastic, especially when stuck on a ledge fighting a terrifying boomer while hordes of the undead are trying to get a taste of your juicy flesh, and when you exit the lift into the fiery ground level the fear is palpable. It’s only the first level too.

This one is set more out in the open, with the zombies flying at you from all angles. Luckily in the clip our hero is something of a sharp shooter, which helps stop the terror from rising too high. All in all, we’re really looking forward to the release of Left4Dead 2 on Friday. What a great time to be a gamer this is, eh?
