I started to play LEFT 4 DEAD weeks before and it was the best gaming experience for me..this game even does not require that much high graphics as for Crysis but the texture in the game is wonderful..even with my 256MB graphic card it is perfect but the settings I can't put it to high graphics though..this game can't be played on laptops as normal laptops does not support the minimum requirements of graphics memory for this game..if u buy a laptop with powerful specs(at least 256MB of graphics memory), maybe you are able to play..
It was fun when playing LAN game with others..most of you that are new to this game, I have a solution for activating the LAN play in this game..the steps as folows..
