i got into the closed alpha a few days ago and played the game w/ some of my friends 

overall its ok? i really can't see any reason why i wouldnt play l4d2, the card system is hard to understand and giving characters special abilities is eh. all in all i'd just really rather play l4d2 if i wanted a zombie game
still not the worst thing ever and had a decent amount of fun playing it.

a card system? tbh i hate when games introduce mechanics like that. because yeah... l4d is so straight to the point and no bullhonky. do
you think it's even worth checking out the beta then?

if you're interested go ahead and play it w/ some friends and make up your own mind but imo just play l4d2 instead if you want guaranteed zombie fun

I also was in the alpha, but as a versus only player I saw nothing that excites me. Though we didn't see the PVP mode yet, and not all infected, just from the co-op it seemed to be more about avoiding/dealing damage than split-second tactical stuff. I'll look at PVP footage on the youtubez when it's out, but I'm not holding my breath for it being in the same ballpark.

That's not just because of the alpha, but also all that talk about "re-defining the genre they invented" but also "not repeating themselves". Originality is great, but if you invent action chess, and then go on to make snakes and ladders instead of improving on action chess, just to "not repeat yourself", that's silly, and that's the vibe I'm getting by now... they may not even know what they had.

Anyway, if it has a *lower* skill ceiling than L4D, people might easily still play versus long after WB decided running B4B servers is no longer profitable enough. I'd love to be proven wrong, but we'll see.
