The game is great! The server browser works better now but is still crap. This is a minor issue, however, and will be fixed. I have not noticed additional bugs after the patch that fixed the one where enemies would disappear right after they were killed.

The game is surprisingly deep, incredibly fun to play and very rewarding in the long run! The levelling up of character classes gives a feeling of overall progression and your skills make more of a difference than in L4D. Not only do you need to know how to play, as in being proficient at headshots, being mobile, knowing what to shoot and when but there is also a deep tactical element to the game. You really need to work together much more than in L4D and with a group of friends the game can be very rewarding.

The normal mode does seem quite difficult when taking into account the difference between normal and beginner, not to mention the fact that there is still a hard and insane difficulty!

I recommend this to anyone who liked L4D and especially those who want something deeper and a bit more "hardcore". Despite it being a hugely tactical and teamplay-based game the actual core gameplay is more enjoyable to me than L4D. What makes it this way is the different weapons, character classes, different types of enemies and the "bullet-time" effect which is cool as hell, potentially hilarious as well as an actual beneficial gameplay addition!

Bottom-line: Amazing value for money. Fun yet deep. Challenging (in the best way possible). For best result, play with friends and voice comm!
