    It’s safe to say that we’re probably not going to be getting a Left 4 Dead 3 in our lifetimes, but Back 4 Blood is going to be as close as we’ll get in the time being. The game preserves mostly everything that made the two Left 4 Dead games so great while integrating it into the modern gaming sphere.

    Back 4 Blood is unquestionably a fun multiplayer zombie killfest but its card system is a bit light on the novelty side of things, and we can't help feeling that the game is still a bit of a Left 4 Dead 3.

    Doppiaggio convincente per ogni personaggio (cosa non esistente su L4D, in Italiano ovviamente), varietà di personalizzazione sia di armi e accessori ma anche di skin personaggi ecc..

    Tante carte per sbizzarrirsi con i mazzi (Selezione che inoltre aumenterà con i vari drop di contenuti)

    Il mio coop shooter preferito di sempre insieme a L4D2 (soprattutto tempi d'oro) e sicuramente uno dei migliori giochi dell'anno, must have per i fan del genere.

    Overall it does not have the same impact that Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 had, but it is the closest to Left 4 Dead 3. While repetition sets in fastOverall it does not have the same impact that Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 had, but it is the closest to Left 4 Dead 3. While repetition sets in fast with level structure and mission objectives Back 4 Blood offers a wide range of customization with character, weapons,gear and teammates. Fast and relentless at time the action and violence does not let up. Very good online but offline can get stale quickly. The card perk system works well. Expand

    let's start off at the beginning as the game offers you a "tutorial", well i say tutorial, i mean a "prologue". I think that's the word theselet's start off at the beginning as the game offers you a "tutorial", well i say tutorial, i mean a "prologue". I think that's the word these developers were looking for with this game. Honestly, i think valve has had them chained in a basement since the last left 4 dead and they've never played a game since. And it shows. Oh boy does it show.

    Now Dark Souls, when you first play it, is a difficult game. It's almost unnerving how quickly you may die but it tells you what button is what and gives you the bare bones of how to play. As you'd expect from a game tutorial.

    This game doesn't tell you the controls, the buttons, what everything is for or anything useful. Just puts you straight into the, say it with me, "prologue" (act 1). If you leave a game you're put into "a hub" of sorts and it gives you a couple of terrible videos about supply lines and cards. As long as you go into the menus and look for them, it'll do that.

    I know you don't start from the hub, as part of the tutorial, you're not shown around the camp. Giving the basic thing we all expect, and, then put into the action. Which just baffles me to be honest. As for the videos above, they explain a system without explaining the system. Play the game and it eventually becomes clear (eventually). It's just terrible.

    It all feels rushed. Really rushed. From the security doors (you can't disable) and just wait until zombies appear as you stand around, and one eventually breaks the door without the alarm going off (i kid you not). It's badly designed, badly choreographed and just feels off.

    I'm not going to talk about the useless bots, the useless bunched up bots which supposedly "help" you if you wanna play the campaign solo. Oh gawd. Don't do that. It just makes the game much much worse. It's fun seeing them yell out things like "molotov grenade", and you see 3 of them in the chest you just opened. So thanks for the headsup, i was suddenly blind for a second. But they won't pick up or use any of them. It's just frustrating.

    The AI of the zombies isn't much better, in the first few chapters you'll find the tallboy, exploder and stinger almost together ALL the time. All three will suddenly appear. It'll break any suspense they were going for... and makes you wish you were playing left 4 dead.

    I like to pretend this game doesn't exist, it's not something i'd ever force my friends to play. It's not fun. There's no depth unless you enjoy collecting "cards" which make little to no difference and enjoy "customisation" to show off to the same friends you're probably playing with.

    This shouldn't have been made. Like the Batman & Robin (1997) film, i'm going to pretend this doesn't even exist.
