Left 4 Dead 2 nerfed

Postby KRaM » Tue Nov 17, 2009 9:24 pm

Played a bit tonight and was a bit disappointed. Game play etc seems fine but the dialling down of the violence is excessive. As soon as you shoot a zombie it disappears before your eyes. If they had of held the violence at the same level as the first L4D that would have been fine but they seem to have turned it off to get by the censors. I assume there will be a patch in a few days to correct this or a reliable work around will be found. Might not start playing until this occurs.

I noticed that on the demo, they fade away before they even hit the ground. New weapons are better though. It will have to compete with COD6 for my time.

I'm not sure buying the game and then refusing to play until they fix it is much of a "protest" :)

Hopefully Valve will do something - they have obviously used the standard no gore mode to get by the censors. Hopefully they will patch it - or I will have to start questioning my Valve fanboy views.

Anyway I have Overlord to fill my time - $9 woo hoo!

I played it today Keith and it was fun, not much different in the standard game mode, yet to try some of the new stuff.

I ran it this evening (after doing a virus check) and it works like a dream. The game soooooooooooooooo much better with the gore - the chainsaw is a hoot!

LOL the ads on tv (for the XBOX version) show the rating as MA-15+ (strong, bloody violence) :lol:

I can't get the crack to work. The Play Left 4 dead button doesn;t become enabled.

Where is the left 4 dead 2 folder?

Here was the file path I used -

D:\Budda Budda\Steam\steamapps\common\Left 4 Dead 2

I clicked on the Left 4 Dead 2 folder and it worked fine.

It works.

There's not that much gore. The only difference is the blood splatter and the body stays on the ground longer.

what do you mean - you knee cap a zombie and its leg flies off, you use the chainsaw against a horde and pretty much all you see is blood splatter. You cant have a zombie game without excessive gore !

I think they should get Matt McConnelly when they make my epic struggle into a movie.

Are you sure he could manage your ocker Australian brogue?
