Last year’s zombieholocaust survival simulator, Left 4 Dead gets a sequel chock-full of extra zombies, weapons and scenarios. After a viral outbreak causes 99 per cent of the world’s population to mutate, four survivors must shoot and hack through the infected hoards to safety. All five scenarios can be played alone, but L4D2 is at its best when experienced cooperatively online. Hard-boiled campaigners will welcome new “special infected” types,while zombie encounters are randomised to inject much needed freshness into the frantic action.
