    For 360 owners, I'm happy to help you breathe a sigh of relief when I say that The Passing is an excellent, meaningful addition to Left 4 Dead 2, and worth the 560 Microsoft Point asking price.
  2. Mutation mode is tons of fun for the Infected as it allows you to truly feel dominating, but the real adrenaline rush is for the Survivors, who have to communicate and have fast reflexes in order to survive.
  3. Generous, right? More so for PC owners, who get all of the above for free. [Aug 2010, p.99]
  4. The Passing adds a new Campaign, a new infected and some extras for the multiplayer side that should make Left 4 Dead 2 fans very happy.
  5. If you are still enjoying Left 4 Dead 2, or have a hankering to get back into the apocalypse, spending 560 Microsoft points ($7) on The Passing is a good bet.
  6. The new campaign's a solid enough addition, if a brief one.
  7. It's just a shame that this unique combination of still-alivers didn't result in something truly innovative.

It's th first time that there are more survivors alive than just your group. I loved the witty references adn the m60 is my new favourite gun. The golf club is a valuable addition to the vast group of melee weapons. I also love the patches that have been introduced along with the game. The infected bots for versus are great. The fallen survivor is a cool new uncommon common. I loved it! Expand

The area is really nicely set up and it's a cool place to play in when playing Versus. The place has started to seem a bit dull now, but i play it every now and then, a definite buy if you don't already have it. Expand
