So this is the R6 version of L4D?

That actually sounds pretty cool. I much prefer coop PvE over PvP.

Pretty much. Except for in your face bling, bling all the time. Simplistic levels and level design, easy monster AI, very little monster variety, boring and predictable gameplay, etc. etc. etc.

I love L4D, but very few games have come even close to the kind of intensity of that original game. L4D2 was good enough, Vermintide and Vermintide2 are probably the best L4D "clones" but they bring a whole different and varied IP and Universe into the picture, as well as some RPG progression etc. and....IMO that's it.

Back4Blood is just meh, and I can't believe that it was made by the same people who did L4D.
We've played L4D to death at this point. I tried Vermintude, but it just didn't grab me. Ditto for Deep Rock Galactic. GTFO has very positive reviews on Steam, so maybe we'll try that next.

Many of the reviews compared it to GTFO. A much slower paced, more stealth centered co-op experience rather than the more action oriented L4D style. I'm intrigued. Intrigued enough to spend the $1 for a month of PC Game Pass to try it out at least.
Oh yeah, thanks for the GTFO reminder. Meant to discuss with my coop group, and forgot about it over the holidays.

From the few bad reviews I've seen, the biggest gripe is that it feels like a modded Siege. What they forget to add is that for people who have never played Siege, the game may by all accounts be a very solid and great experience. I think there are a lot of those gamers out there, like myself, because the first is PVP ONLY.

A friend gifted me this game. We wait now for my 240hz monitor to be fixed at the repair center and after that it's party time!
Thanks Quinn, completely agree. I never played R6 Siege for the reasons you mentioned, and watching game play reviews like AGC, the game looked great. My family does some coop gaming, and this looks like a fun addition to the roster.

Except that most of the big coop games are 4-player, and most regular coop groups consist, therefore, of four players, and they made this... three player.

Which means people who play with a regular group aren't invited.

Skillup called the game bland and boring, arguably worse than a "bad" game, since at least bad games make you feel something, and often they try to do new things.

All right, Clancy, take the boys and surround the house!
