They crash in nearby Whitney County, and from there cross a bridge on foot to a truck depot, where they take a truck and drive towards Riverside. A destroyed bridge at a turnpike on the way to Riverside forces the survivors to fight through infected zombies again. They enter Riverside through a church where a crazy man won't let them in his safe room. The "church guy" rings the bell and calls a horde. After he succumbs to the infection, the door unlocks and the survivors kill him. They make their way through Riverside to a boathouse, where they use a radio to call John and Amanda Slater to rescue them in their fishing boat. Unfortunately, the Slaters ... Written by Dogman15

Did You Know?


"The Sacrifice" DLC was released for both L4D2 and the original game, although the DLC has proven to be difficult for L4D1 because its lack of L4D2's additional weapons and items. So, L4D2 is the recommended version for DLC purchase. See more »


If Francis shoots Louis, Louis will sometimes say "Go on, do it one more time fat man!" referencing Francis' original design in the earlier stages of the game. See more »

Bill: Hold up!
[examines a pile of corpses, touches a green fluid]
Bill: Never seen anything like this before...
Francis: Geez! Don't let that stop you from smearing it all over yourself.
Bill: [scowls; wipes fluid on Francis] They're changing!
Francis: [disgusted] Ah! Dammit, Bill! Aww! It stinks!
[Louis chuckles, right before everyone hears someone... crying...?]
Zoey: Someone's still alive...!

Can you survive the zombie apocalypse?
22 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In order to survive the zombie apocalypse, you will need many items before doing so: medikits, pain pills, flashlights, molotoves, pipe bombs, gasoline, propane tanks, and guns.Without these items, you will never survive.That goes the same for the incredibly addictive game 'Left 4 Dead'. In the game, you encounter zombies, hordes, witches, hunters, smokers, and tanks.The tank that I am referring to does not involve the army.The tank is basically a giant brute who looks like he used to be an ordinary man before he injected himself with tons of steroids.In this game, surviving the zombie apocalypse is pure fun.You'll be playing for hours and hours non-stop.Surviving the apocalypse hasn't been this much fun in a long time.
