ReviOUYA Review #22 – Left 2 Die

Left 2 Die is a single & multiplayer survival style action game.  Created by Guilherme Daniel Molin, this game sets you in the middle of checkpoints where you are to fend of zombies with what you have and your surroundings.  This includes your guns, any available ammo, crates, etc.

Graphics: 8/10

The characters have a cartoony design, and the zombies and zombie-dogs also have a nice look to them.  There are 4 characters to choose from and each has their own distinct look to them.  The main menu and stage selection are also pleasing to the eye, and everything feels quite polished in the graphics department.  Everything runs smooth when traversing from checkpoint to checkpoint.  The only issue seen was when moving between checkpoints it is hard to see in front of you causing death if you fall through a gap.  The graphics are, otherwise, solid.

Look over there! I see one!!

Sound: 8/10

The music has an action-like feel, without feeling tacked on or out of place.  It is gradual and works very well with the zombies coming towards you and attacking.  The song ends and there is a 3 – 5 seconds of silence before it replays however, which actually makes you think “hey, where did the music go?”  The sound effects, however, are spot on, simply fit with the game, and are not annoying in any way. there ise no clipping, skipping or anything in terms of such, and there are a wide array of sound effects.

Gameplay: 8/10

The game has single player and multiplayer.  While the single player is nice, the multiplayer is currently the shining point of the game.  There are currently 2 modes of play, Zombie Mode and Vs. with one more mode coming in the near future.  There are currently 4 characters to play as, each with their own unique guns as well has holding a pistol and a knife.  The goal is to clear the waves of zombies that comes from all sides with everything you have.  While it may seem boring, you have limited ammo, and have to resort to knifing and throwing crates.  It is a fun game and quite simple.

Overall:

Left 2 Die is an action game suitable for 1 – 4 players.  The goal being to clear checkpoints from all Zombies coming your way.  With its smooth graphics and action sound track, it is an action game that is certainly worth a play.  The Soundtrack does end early, and the game can be quite tough without another player.. in fact, this game is much more enjoyable with more players, but still a fun enough game on its own as well.

    Didn’t enjoy this game unfortunately. Couple of negatives, doesn’t seem to like PS3 controllers which rules out multiplayer for me. I also found the screen/gameplay too cluttered. Towerfall has a better character to screen ratio to follow for this sort of game.
    I can recommend ‘Killing Floor Calamity’ as a better option unless it’s for little kids. Does everything and much more. 🙂
