awesome...
lol ripping off of the nipples

I'm pretty sure that bit about cults is actually how all religions get started... :-D

Great review, though.

Yahtzees on a streak! All of his recent reveiws have been gold

Jursa:
This is the first time I've ever seen Yahtzee ever say ANYTHING bad about valve. Tho the bad part is actually a compliment considering how he destroys other ones. This review was a breath of fresh air in this carbon dioxide world, thank you Yahtzee.

I find that strangely ironic :p

This one felt a little flat, i dare say. Your/His voice seems to be in the lower tone which makes you/him sound too serious to be entertaining, and there wasn't anything that really made me laugh. Of course, this was more of an actual review than a 'this game sucks and here's why' rant, so maybe that's the reason.

Shock horror, Yahtzee likes a Valve game....

And wtf was up with his voice?

5/10

I'd agree with one of the last typed jokes, I don't get the whole "Smoker" name either. I mean, yes, I get that they poof into clouds of smoke, but that's obviously kind of an arbitrary distinction that feels kind of tacked on.

I also wonder if I'm the only one who thinks of Waterworld every time they hear the characters yell out "SMOKER!", I half expect to see the zombies eating "Smeat", with one of them yelling "It does look like shit". Or am I the only one who remembers that much about Waterworld at all?

Nice review, good to see a good game get praise.

Sennz0r:
Hehe that made me chuckle :)
Looks like Yahtzee kind of likes everything Valve comes up with, and in this case I must say it's justified. Looks like a cool game to take on at a lan-party.

Also: is there a special "Yahtzee thread banning contest" the mods engage in every wednesday or what?

I think it's like a surprise attack, Yahtzee informs then before he starts the thread so one or two gather in it to mow down the spam as soon as it emerges its putrid head.

Fantastic review as always Yahtzee, you seem to have far less bile right now, don't tell me you're softening up because of the Holidays? I think so.

Pretty fair review I'd say. For me, I just play the game because it's fun to run around with a group of friends and kill zombies, and I think as long as you don't expect it to be more, you'll be happy. Seems that's the jist that Yahtzee's getting at...

xD hot colllage chick +guy with long tounge.

isnt there a better website to make sexual enuendos on you fucktard

...Wow, Umm...Did you even watch the video? It was what Yahtzee circled and drew a line to. Don't post in response to something you have no idea he is talking about.

Anyways, great video. I especially like the part about the 4 people huddled in a basement waiting it out while the zombies are rubbing their bellies with ice cream scoopers in their hands. And then you switched it to Koalas. Great stuff. I especially liked this episode.

I was hoping it was gonna be good cos i played demo on x-box but i'm wating 4 PS3 version to come out

Soo... I am going 2 go 2 a special corner in hell 4 doing what I always do?

Spinwhiz:

Thank You :)

"If you don't ban 'um, they won't learn nothin'"

Wholeheartedly agree, i don't understand why these people are soo thrilled with the idea of "Guys! hey everybody look i posted first on something i know nothing about yet!!!......hey wanna watch the video now?"

On a seperate note, how does everybody think 'Prototype' looks? i'm pretty pumped it has a lot of potential i just hope the don't bomb it

Wait a sec, did Yahtzee just shoehorn in a reference to the Re-Animator movie? He did circle "guy with long tounge" and "hot college girl", right?

I liked the review, but I've been wondering how much I can trust his opinion on things any more after he verbally abused the game (Mirror's Edge) that I loved.

That said, he mostly echos things I've heard from other people I know about the game, and I'm really hoping I get a copy for Christmas. See, I was dumb and threw a few hot new titles out as gift ideas, which means I can't buy anything until, at earliest, the 26'th. I'm looking forward to this game, and a Croshaw stamp of approval must mean good things.

His voice sounded a bit weird... or was that just me. But still a good review, not as anger filled as normal though...

That's funny, I also noticed he sounded different, but I though he sounded angrier than usual. It's like his tone was harsher, maybe lacking the soft sarcastic tone we find comforting & instead sounding pure angry.

Still, a great video nonetheless.

Yeay, I like it when he reviews games he likes or atleast not hate!
And HOLY CRAP! He said something good about TF2! Huzza!

I would say his tone was harsher, but I wouldn't have said angrier.

I quite liked both the review and the game itself. The co-op is really top notch in the fact that my friend and I played only the demo (which only give two chapters of the first scenario) and played for hours, exploring in campaign, dicking around with difficulty, falling in love with the red cars with alarms (should've mentioned it yahtzee). and then in online multiplayer we found out that some online suviviors we're complete dicks and proceeded to completely screw the hell out of them during a mission and still survive with only he and I left. but back to the review. yes some not-so-fun bits in the game but just not-so-fun; it's not like they were bad. overall a good game and a better review.

Can't get enough of L4D. I salute Valve for reminding me why I waste so much time playing computer games.

Very amusing as always. He really didn't have a lot of bad things to say about this one.

Great review, Yahtzee. I recently purchased this game and enjoyed it, though I can understand how the scenarios and weapon selection would get tiring quickly. Still, with the ebb and flow created by the AI director (which seemed to do it's job of keeping the pace reasonable well) and the randomness inherent in playing with other people, it keeps things different enough to be played over and over again. The actual cooperation in a co-op game was amazing.

And I too laughed out loud when you said "retard" at the end.

I'm not exactly sure how you connect zombies to nerds other than maybe in physical appearance as they've been pretty much "mainstream" for at least the last 20 years but okay...

The game is summarized pretty much in saying:
1) If you intend to play it alone Single-Player-Alike or Expect some kind of story... you won't have fun.
2) If you intend to play it with 2-3 like-minded people Online against or with some other people you will have a hell of a time :P

Oh... and that Smoker joke has been done to death already xD

Now that you say that, I was just thinking that maybe the squirt gun used by the imp was a reference to another fantastic game: Zombies Ate My Neighbors. A fanastic co-op (mostly) zombie based game as well.

Why in god's green and blue earth would you WANT to remember waterworld. yay for Kevin Costner though

I thought The Escapist payed for his games to review, that's what he stated in one of the earlier videos.

Aaah, great as always Mr. Crowshaw.

Loved the bit about the office worker being black that was awesome.

I want to get left 4 dead but none of the stores near me don't have it at all they didn't even order it!

Can't wait for the next one.

Why is Yahtzee always right? Hit's the nail on the head almost every time! 'tis a good game but yeah it hasn't got ENDLESS playability. Good fun with friends though. Another great, and entertaining review. I did notice the lack of criticism for a VALVe game though ;P Then again, how many people criticise valve anyway?

He must be on Vicodin. He didn't rant about the game rerally shining, but he somehow didn't feel the need to spew bile all over it . . . ?

Yeah you're probably right. I suppose for me, him opening with "...Zombies join the list of things nerds NEED TO SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT!" kind of set the anger level to 11 in my mind.

But like Cheesebob said, he could just have a cold...though it is Summer in Australia...

By Yahtzee's standards he's practically awarding this Game of the Year status. If he can't find four minutes' worth of venom that's probably a sign that he loved the game.

Hate to break it to you, but Valve hates developing for the playstation 3. If you don't believe me play the Orange Box ps3 version.

"If you don't ban 'um, they won't learn nothin'"

Aaaand I'm getting that as a tattoo.

On topic, who didn't think he'd like this game? It's sweet!
I am honestly shocked, however, that he said very little in the way of negativity.

...I guess I'm just expecting him to vomit over everything in rage.
Oh well! Hooray for tearing the nipples off survivors!

Nice ZP

I want to play that game!

Wow, he REALLY liked this one! :D

Awesome game.
