The best undead shooter on the planet returns with even wilder brain-feeding frenzies. The sequel’s five new campaigns span the Deep South as you move through shopping malls, amusement parts, and a murky bayou while facing an array of relentless new zombie types. Zombies in riot gear are almost impossible to kill with gunfire from the front, so players must coordinate attacks and improvise with new melee weapons like chainsaws and katanas. As with its critically acclaimed predecessor, the only way to survive Left 4 Dead 2 is to cooperate with three friends—leave someone behind and your chances of survival plummet. Once you’re done splattering the streets with zombie blood, get infected yourself and hunt down survivors in the Scavenge multiplayer mode. Tastes like chicken!
