Hey guys,

Im thinking about getting Killing Floor or Left 4 Dead 2, becaus it sounds pretty fun to play as a team and kill zombies and stay alive:)

But.... WHICH ONE!?:) And if you say KF or L4D2, also tell me why.

whats the difference between these two games?

Killing Floor is like playing horde mode. Stay alive for as long as you can against waves.

Left 4 Dead 2 you advance thru a level from beginning to end.

If you don't have LFD1, get that one first. It's the best.

LFD2, if you get it, be sure to invite me to a few games. I play both.

I just got Killing Floor a few days ago but haven't tried it yet.

l4d2, its just infintely more fun with its heaps of game modes and campaigns. I've never played KF before but from what sissy said thats sounds kinda lame if you ask me.

i have both and trust me, get l4d2. KF can b fun at first but its literally the same thing over and over and over again. It has 1 game mode:surive waves. and guess what, l4d2 has the same game mode AND a few other game modes as well. Get l4d2.

I like Killing Floor better over L4D2.

With 32-64 people in a modded server all killing zombies, it's pretty fun.

I like Killing Floor more. Much more people use custom maps and there's a ton of them. Really fun and manages to never get old at least for me. I like L4D1 but I felt l4d2 was a bit old hat, got bored of it quick

ok, stop comparing the two games, because both games focuses on two different things.

sure your thinking, 'they both kill zombies, whats the difference?'

although both games are coop, L4D demands more coop then any other game. it is build on going through 'stages', where you and 3 others try to escape alive. what makes L4D different from other games is that you can never, ever rambo. those who do, are the ones asking to get killed. yes easy and normal mode you can rambo a bit, but lets see you try when there is a hunter/jockey/smokers/charger/witch/tank on you.

long story short, if your team hates you, kiss your butt goodbye.

now, L4D offers many great stages and gameplay, but non can beat the versus mode. this i think is what makes L4D so successful. this mode pits you and 3 others against the infected, but those infected are controlled by other players. so now you are up against a enemy with a bit more brains in there step.

and i also like the feature that L4D2 has, which is the realism mode. hate those rambos on your team? well realism is where team work is required more then the regular mode. you cannot see the outline of your friends, which makes it more important to stick together. and shooting off zombies limbs take longer to kill which make headshots come in more use. this is the best of L4D2, but thats just me.

now Killing floor, well, lets put it this way, if you want to just go with some friends and kill zombies/monsters, well you dont need to look far. people have customized maps to fit 64 players, so you play with 63 other people in working together to kill the zombie horde. the game also features a variety of weapons and classes that specialize classes, from those who like to run and gun to those who like to run and chop, there is something for everyone.

its more simplified then L4D because, well, sometimes people want to just shoot damn zombies with friends instead of going from point to point or do missions. its just that simple. killing floor leaves you with that satisfy feeling that L4D some times dont give you. but you do have to work for that feeling. because unlike L4D, there is a final boss in killing floor. and it takes quite some team work and fire power to kill it. and many times, people dont come out alive from the encounter.

so to put it simply -

Left 4 Dead 2-
good long campaigns
good variety of weapons (lets face it, killing zombies with an axe, crowbar, and of course the bat, is just plain damn fun)
the best coop and versus modes you will ever find.
characters that you will just love.
many custom maps online (you have to look for them and install yourself)
if you love working together with others, then this is the game for you.

Killing Floor -
characters........... well there are, but they all have the same voices strangely. but its all the classes that counts, which you can choose from of six.
excellent variety of maps mostly the 64 player maps i think.
loads of guns to choose from.
team work is not that required, but works better with others.
if you want to just shoot something, then this is it.

so this is what i think about the two games. if you bought them over the sales from july 4th, you would have only spent $20 bucks and still have change from that to buy a few ice pops :D

but whichever you choose, hope it brings you some fun times and heres to hoping you can get both games soon.

also heres some vids.

i think when people ask for help on what they should buy rather a game or something else, people should not be bias. sorry if i sound stereotypical if my post has some bias comments on both games, but i tried my best to tell it from a reviewer point of view.

KF is not as linear as L4d1 or 2. In L4D you have to follow a certain path to get to the next map. KF you just fight waves of zombies (increasing in number each time) and fight for survival any where you want to on the map It has an awesome slow motion effect to see you kills even better. In KF you dont need to go off alone. At a beginner level you might can b/c the enemies are few and easy to kill. There is a perk leveling system in Kf as well.

Ask around on the forums to see if anyone has a pass for Kf since alot of ppl bought it on the sale.

I have two passes for KF. PM me if you are really interested. And add me on steam so we can play together! Its a very fun game when added with 20+ people on a big map. Using the Unreal Tourney engine, but to the max. Fun guns and perks system but it can really get old unless you are a true zombie fan. L4D series games are real teamwork games, compared to KF where you'll find yourself begging for money from your stingy teammates..if you died that is.. Just depends on your gaming style.

Well i would go for L4D2.

In L4D, yes you do follow a path in a few game modes. There is also many others. Survival, Scavenge, and Mutations to name some. The Mutations change every week. You can get much more fun and laughs out of L4D2, especially playing with your eGO buddies.

In KF, you fight waves of zombies and thats the ONLY thing you do. No variety at all, with the exceptions of allowing different combinations of specimens to spawn, and a few new maps. You get more of an unsatisfied feeling when you die in this game too.

For their price proportion, an extra 10$ for many more hours of gameplay is a better deal. I think you would like l4d2 better and you enjoy playing with eGO. Talk to reactor, he has a group for eGO l4d2.

Killing Floor > Left 4 dead

always and forever
not as many mature people as there are on left 4 dead
but then again people dont come into killing floor and kill you for lulz

both games are pretty linear.
L4D = get from point A to B
KF = Survive a wave of zombies, buy weapons, Rinse repeat

you fight waves of zombies and thats the ONLY thing you do. No variety at all, with the exceptions of allowing different combinations of specimens to spawn, and a few new maps. You get more of an unsatisfied feeling when you die in this game too.
i get this feeling when i play left 4 dead

"Oh no, a witch...oh no, a charger..oh no, *yawn* a tank"

at least in Killing Floor you can set up a game to have any zombie spawn
all Flesh Pounds, all boomers, all sirens.

You can't say "dont by this game because this one has only one game play"
because thats what i see in Left 4 Dead
one game play, you and 4 people, fighting waves of zombies, to reach a common goal.

killing floor FTW more guns, more, enemies ,more characters to play as, more,maps,perks, better mods,and more free DLC. Need i say more ?? it challenges you more and i have ad killing floor for 2 years now and i still play it

L4d i have owned and played both (xbox 360) i played both fro a week and hated them both (4 -6 campaign's less unique achievements small amount of weapons 4 characters to chose from no perks no good mods its the same thing over and over again i get this feeling when i play left 4 dead its always the same the creatures are to easy to kill ( tank ) it take more concentration to kill a flesh pound than the tank

it's funny how i see some poeple bashing on the left 4 dead seires. The way i see it, L4D has more of a point to the game rather that just mindlesssly killing zombies. KF that is all you do just kill wave after wave after wave of zombie sometimes not changing the Difficulty. Survival in L4D is a real challenge because in each wave it's not always the same zombie they throw in a little tanks in the first round then it builds up from common---> mix---->special. KF i just see zombies that take a few shots to kill. KF doesn't have a campaign which is what i didn't like about it much. If you have to get a zombie killing game with "A" point to it and have some fun at the same time, Get L4D1 and 2. If you just wanna go around and recklessly kill zombies get KF. Of course it's my opinion on the games, but it's you who picks what game to get.

(L4D forever)

it's not like these people are in the army with tons of guns at their dispossal these are ordinary poeple trying to make it out alive. Not to find the source of infection just to simply make it out alive.

neither are the guys in KF, you start out with a pistol and a knife and you wait to buy a gun, if you don't have enough money, your S.O.L. you keep using your pistol til you run out of ammo, then you use a knife.

you work to get your gun, not pick up off the floor because someone magically has a few left over M16's from a garage sale, or a random grenade launcher is just chilling on the porch outside a uncompleted house. and PLEASE explain to me how ordinary people know how to use military grade weapons just right off the bat.

and I'm trying not to bash L4D, the game is fun, but i like Killing Floor better since it was Tripwires original idea

Well...unless they made the Mod back when UT2004 was out... KF started out as a UT04 mod.


Both games are great. Both have their own play style. Play them both and decide. :)
