Trivia

In the original storyline there was a side element in which Francis and Zoey develop a relationship with one another. However, test audiences found their romance to be "distracting" from the main storyline and so it was ultimately cut from the final version. See more »

Goofs

Although throughout the 'No Mercy' campaign you are heading for 'Mercy hospital' and can see it in many areas of the game due to the huge logo at the top of the building, when you finally reach the roof top, the 'Mercy Hospital' logo is missing during the final battle and helicopter escape.

WOW! Nothing better can be expected

This game is something which will never lose its passion and love i have for it. The Valve industries has produced an excellent game which is hard to deny. The characters such as Boomer, Hunter, Smoker, Tank and Witch are very fabulous creations that has enough abilities to scare you to your limits. The survivors Characters of Bill, Francis, Louis and Zoey fits the best to the game to fight and survive against the zombie apocalypse. The sound effects are brilliant and the making of other features such has horde and infected noises are more than enough to feel you chill. This game has nonstop thrill and once you get the interest to play it then you will be addicted to the game. Left 4 Dead! You Rule...
