    Left 4 Dead 2: The Passing is a bit better than Crash Course DLC for Left 4 Dead, but only barely. Three levels is still too few for a campaign and the potential drama from the original survivors isn't used up to its potential. Also the campaign is filled with the least desirable ideas from Left 4 Dead, like annoying perma-panic in shallow water and yet another scavenge-type ending. Maybe next time we'll finally get something decent, Valve? [June 2010]
  2. It's just a shame that this unique combination of still-alivers didn't result in something truly innovative.

    The Passing includes a new 3 map campaign with the l4d1 survivors as npcs, a golf club, a m60, a new uncommon infected, and a new weekly The Passing includes a new 3 map campaign with the l4d1 survivors as npcs, a golf club, a m60, a new uncommon infected, and a new weekly mutation mode. The map is pretty well designed and fun, and the conversations with the original survivors are usually funny although limited and brief. The new weapons work well but they only appear in the passing campaign. The new mutation mode brings week long modes such as realism versus, and versus survival ; there will be 20 modes in all and are definitely an interesting way to keep the game fresh. All in all The Passing is a great update, yes there could have been more interactions with the original survivors and the m60 and golf club should probably be in the other campaigns as well but when it comes right down to it it's really fun and that's all that really matters.

    Kind of a "meh" experience. It was fun to see the new survivors, and the witch in a dress.. But there was nothing much else that stood out. Kind of a "meh" experience. It was fun to see the new survivors, and the witch in a dress.. But there was nothing much else that stood out. The L4D1 survivors say nothing about Bill's death, they seem rather happy too. It's strange. The new "gamemode" isn't much of a gamemode as it is a rehash of previously made ones, I don't see much potential in it. Overall, it was sure as hell better than Crash Course. Let's just wait and see what they'll do the for L4D1 Passing DLC. Full Review »
