    Personally i'd go with L4D2, the game is a lot more refined and offers more in the way of replayability.

    Re: Left for Dead 1 or 2?

    Everything about L4D2 is a slight improvement on the original, except for the characters. The survivors in the first game are very memorable ... and zoey was in it (L). Though, I am growing to enjoy Ellis and Coach.

    Get L4D2, new infected, melee weapons, more guns, scavenge mode, realism mode, etc. It's a substantial improvement.

    Okay L4D2 it is then . My Xbox has not arrived yet but I want a few good games for it when it does.

    I managed to win a auction on fleabay for a XBox 20GB HDD for £12.50 earlier tonight so I am a happy camper

    L4D2 without a doubt.

    Both are good though, both worth playing.

    I'm playing through the first one at the moment. Can't complain, picked it up cheap in the last Steam sale.

    Re: Left for Dead 1 or 2?

    I would wholly recommend getting L4D2 over L4D1, simply because of the improvements they made over L4D1, such as the new gore systems, Melee Weapons and of course the graphical improvements.

    I find it rather hard to go back and play L4D after playing L4D2, which is a shame because it's an amazing game.

    Re: Left for Dead 1 or 2?

    I know you're just pointing out possible post count inflation tactics mate but neither does yours to be fair!

    L4D2 all the way mate - I'd still grab a copy of 1 if you can get it really cheap though as the campaigns are good and i've heard the framerate is a bit better compared with L4D2.


    I think as long as you have a decent group of people to play with it's an absolute riot to play (long as you don't take it too seriously!).
