So, im downloading the demo on 360 as we speak. I managed to get a early demo key through a bug on the key distribution page.
I'll post more when I finished playing.

Well, after playing it with Teek on the PC... I can conclude that I just wasted £33.

It may be fun for a while, but there is not enough substance to keep you going for more than 30 minutes to an hour. It's repetitive Shoot, Reload, Get Pounded Upon, Repeat. Nothing new and nothing special, especially the environments. Weapons are limited and feel alright. Graphics stutter and aren't very clear. With the exception of the few boomers, jumpers and hunters, the game just features lots of inanimate zombies who only charge at you once you have nearly finished your ammo and have accidentally tripped a wire that releases the "horde" on you.

A true disappointment so far.

Yes. Waste, tbh. Wait for Nov. 11th. My impatience got me to waste £33.

Seems ok-ish so far. Glad I didn't jump on the bandwagon and pre-order blindly but it's worth a pick-up I guess.

If you pre-order a game on Steam you can cancel the order by contacting Steam support as long as you do so before the game is released.

And tbh thats exactly what I thought it would be like judging from the videos. No substance at all. I was hoping that after playing it i'd change my mind. Since I haven't pre-ordered I can't play until the 11th.

I haven't pre-ordered either. I'm contemplating whether to get it now or for Xmas.


I think Xmas is a wise choice, along with GoW2..

Now now. So far all we have is one negative 'review'. Wait until more folk have played it before judging. Or even better until you've played it. I'm sceptical too but i'm not judging it yet.

On the Steam forums its pretty split. Some people say its amazing and some say its very disappointing. The biggest complaint so far is the god awful laggy, connection problemmy multiplayer. Because of the crappy matchmaking system in place of dedicated servers.

IMO Steam is the best thing to happen to PC gaming in years.

Really he's not far off. It's lacking something very basic to a video game: fun.

FYI anyone who doesn't like matchmaking type "openserverbrowser" in the console and check the custom tab.

I'm hoping that by the time the open demo/full game comes out all these problems will be fixed. I mean seriously Valve, matchmaking? Not only matchmaking, but seriously fail matchmaking. This isn't the sodding Xbox.

Hang on. I've just realised. How are you playing it if you haven't pre-ordered it?

The general consensus seems to be 'meh' so far

Don't even have a 360. Gamestop had a site that was supposed to give left 4 dead demo keys for anyone who pre-ordered retail but you didn't need to enter any code for it to work you could just enter an email and get a key.
