The Passing: To pass or not to pass

A Forum Thread for Left 4 Dead 2

What was your all around thoughts on play, design , bots and acting.

Did anyone else notice the passing sucked? Well for the amount of time and delay i was hoping for something more exciting and dramatic. All i got was 3 maps that hordes don't really exist and crappy acting. Then when you play with bots the bots get stuck in alot of places like the nav file stops there or they forgot to add battleground to the nav. All in all i was sad to see Bill go but knew it was coming month ago when they could not get the voice actor to come back. As well as the poorly done design in mapping/nav and panic events. On the bright side i will be talking to a freind that has fixed alot of these screwed up maps for me to make The Passing a GHS Extreme ver map.

    I found it kinda weaker then the other campaigns. i mean i under stand its not supposed to be like the other 5 but still. the finale wasnt really that good. i expected the other 3 to walk along side with you to get the generators working and such. bill's death also struck me as odd since no one had said a word about it like what happen to him. even when you take Bills M16 its not like they go and say "dont take that" or something. the wedding witch...was crap. she didnt look like she was getting married it looked like she was raped. the gauntlet with the 2 alarms and catwalk run was pretty exciting but felt dull if you kept the M60 til that point. hell even after the even i still had like 40 bullets left in that thing. all in all it was a good attempt to see the survivors meet the O.S's (original survivors) but it could have been better.

    The second level was pretty sweet, but the finale was too plain. In dead center it was a real bitch, but there it felt too easy, and there was no epic feeling after escaping successfully...

    I liked it a lot, though Bills death could have been more of an impact on the old survivors. I mean, he was practically the leader of the group.

    First people complain about how hard it is to get all the achievements... l4d1 beating a campaign without taking damage from any specials. And now they're complaining about it being to easy? Come on people make up your mind :P.

    I agree, Left 4 Dead is better, it has way more character. Speaking of character, I only looked forward to The Passing because I thought it added the original survivors are playable characters; no, instead they make half-ass cameos. Thank god I am not a sucker for the 360 or I would be ever more disappointed.
    Spiral out, keep going

    Yea plus this DLC coming for L4d1 is suppose to be the last one. So from there on out it will be up to mappers and mods to keep it alive.

    The Dialog changes each time, sometimes they mention bill, saying they lost a good man to raise the bridge, why should they lower it again and so on. And then other times they just go along like nothing happened.

    I think that complaining about free stuff is pointless, I mean its free and yeah it may be a lil bit crappy but hell its free, its more than you can say about most publishers these days. Complaining about something being free is being slightly ingratefull, sure you can debate the prons and cons but free dlc is a rare thing enjoy it!

    It was fun, new L4D2 campaign, new modes, new weapons, new pub stomps. It's free and I don't really see why you would complain. Also, if you just play for campaign then you're missing out on literally the whole game. The fun of it is in Versus and competition with others, well, pub stomping for me.

    yeah, unlike some shitty, ass festering cock mongrels! (aka.

    I felt the finale in it didn't have big enouth hordes in it, which kinda ment that using grenades were pointless, if they made the hordes larger it would've been more challenging, especially if you were away from the L4D1 guys. It's also annoying when doing the finale on single player, how you have to go back and a get a can from the same place you got one. L4D1's survivors were usful especially when Tanks spawned, also kinda surprising how you don't comment when you see Bill's dead body something like "This must've been the man they lost" or something similar. The quotes in game were quiet humourous, especially when you first enter the sewers and Ellis finds a "candy bar". Overall I enjoyed the new campain, liked using the golf club, also glad that the baseball bat isn't only exclusive to those who pre-ordered it, but the survivors don't comment on it though..... Some achievements were pretty easy to get, mainly the cache grab one. Also whenever I play it, no-one seems to get hurt too badly which is dissapointing cause I wanna get Shock Jock....

    Just finished playing it a while ago, and well.. ..I didn't find it that fun. I was expecting much more character involvement from the Original 4 then them just standing there blabering on about some bridge. Sure they helped out towards the end, but they just seemed like background characters that didn't need to be there. The map was alright, a bit confusing at times. I found it a lot more challenging then the other campaigns just from the Sewers alone. It's pretty short, it feels like a campaign you would get in a Demo or Trial version of the game, due to it's bland nature. The original story of L4D2 would of still worked without that campaign, and if anything I'd say it's messing with the story behind L4D1. Bill died, pretty sad for most. For others it's just a spot of evidence that Valve needs to find new Voice Actors. While not only was he crucial to the original L4D1 story, he could of also had a much larger influence in The Passing had his Voice Actor not quit. Oh well, not something I'd pay for. I played it once, I'd play it again if I ever find the time. Oh, and this: M60 Machine Gun, Explosive Rounds, Chainsaw. There's a strategy guide for y'all.

    At least they added some nice ass M60 and a cheap ass golf club, I'd say. But I still hate the fact that "the old man" died tragically.
