The only similarity between Left 4 Dead and Rock Band is that it is a lot more fun to play with 3 friends.  Ars Technica has spent a lot of time playing and absolutely love it; this is not just another zombie game.  From the atmosphere to the inclusion of a rather sadistic ‘Director’ Left 4 Dead is going to grab your attention and not let go.  Each time you play one of the 20 maps, you will find something different, no spawn points are fixed; where you found a pile of ammo in the last game you may just find a big boss zombie.  Check out the review for an idea of the nasty tricks to expect from Valve’s newest.

“Valve seems dedicated to the cause of multiplayer gaming on the PC. Sure, you can get Left 4 Dead on the 360, and I’m sure many people will enjoy it, but the best way to play this game is with a mouse and a keyboard, headphones on, screaming at your teammates that you’re surrounded and need backup. You can also play the game in single-player mode, and it’s not a bad time, but without your friends alongside you reacting to the game and later telling stories of your play sessions night after night, the title does lose something. Mark my words: you’ll want to play this game on the PC with three people you know, and it’s best played in the dark.”
