Left 4 Dead

Left 4 Dead (DirectX 9)



Developed by a new team of Valve’s, Left 4 Dead is a single or multi-player game that encompasses the most automatic story for a shooter: zombie apocalypse.  The team aspect of the title, based on Valve’s Source engine, really makes this a unique gaming experience that I think all PC gamers should be required to play.

The Valve: Source engine supports in-game demos that can be played back as fast as possible (fixed frame count) or in real-time (variable frame count) to simulate a more real-world experience.  I chose the last stage of the Farm House “movie” and played through the cornfield section to get the majority of the level in the FRAPS run through.

The HD 4770 is once again in the same position relative to the other GPUs in our testing configuration though in this case the GTS 250 does have more impressive lead.
