I bought it about an hour ago and have already downloaded it. I got it for L4D2 because of the extra No Mercy campaign.


Does the DLC for the second game offer more achievements?

I left my house this morning with background downloads enabled and it was at 30%. It should be downloaded when I get home from work unless my internet craps out on me, in which case I have already planned to murder the customer service reps at my AWFUL ISP.

Got the DLC. Waiting on a competent group to play it with. I don't really want to go through it with randoms or bots.

If you buy it for L4D2 you also get the No Mercy campaign updated for L4D2.

Don't know if anybody has read: But apparently theres a glitch/bug associated with the latest patch. The solution right now? DON'T START YOUR LEFT FOR DEAD ONE COPY! *IF* you have any achievements you did not finish. It's reseting peoples achievement progress on zombie genocide and even the little zombie genocidist, along with surviving all campaigns on expert (which I am still missing the last one lol). I was at like 34k kills so I'm afraid to even boot it up to see if I was effected.

if you already got all the achievements in Left 4 Dead 1 It's no biggie, but if you were planning on going back to L4D1 to finish off achievements - don't till they fix the problem. I'm not sure if Avatar awards were reset on the patch for L4D2 but I noticed no issues with L4D2 with achievement progress.

Anyone play it yet? I didn't like it as much as the Passing... it just didn't feel as epic.

I hate how this one is also only 3 chapters. That's too dang short.

And I played the DLC for l4d1....paying 7 dollars for that one = HIGHWAY ROBBERY. I'd be damned if I would have

I enjoyed it. Not as impressive as The Passing overall but there were some pretty cool environments-- grit pile! I downloaded it for L4D2, so along with the No Mercy port I feel like it's a decent value. But the L4D1 version seems pretty slim for $7, just like Crash Course did.

Didn't play the no mercy campaign yet, but the sacrifice is really really short. Even compared to Crash course or The passing. It's also not very hard either. Hopefully No Mercy will make up for it.

Sacrifice was a decent add-on. I expected a short campaign. Anything more would be preposterous by Valve's standards when it comes to DLC. No Mercy was a nice addition though. So many more ways to take people out with the new infected -- and Taaannnkkk!!! on No Mercy is LOL-able, since everything is VERY straight and narrow.

What's the word on these two DLC? I haven't bought either so should I get neither, one specific one, or both?

If you're a fan of L4D I would definitely go for The Passing & The Sacrifice.

The original game had me hooked on day one, and I've been playing both 1 & 2 off and on ever since.

No mercy is much better with the changes in the end, no more closets.. but can pose a problem to those who lag behind and get clipped on the last rooftop (point of no return)... no rescue closets. NO MERCY is pretty fun on the end with the new infected.. Spitter can make some good changes... Charger is wasted (but i have seen rooftop death charges rarely), jocky is incredibly awsome with the drops to the lower roofs getting group members split.

Some geometry has been changed, no hall stairway to defend both ends, no closets ANYWHERE on roof. The corner jump spot is also not to hot with a good spitter (campaign it still works well).

The Sacrafice is pretty sad really, Some good work with mulitpule paths at all times, splits greedy players up quite well. The Tank in a Boxcar is a hectic spot if people dont kill the tank quick. I personally hate the gravel hill.. One bad player ALWAYS sets it off before anybody else is there.. but if you have good players, its cake.. way to easy for a new Hazard.

I do love the more hazmat suits are in levels.. you can almost do a neverending horde, get those kill counts up (to bad kills count for nothing). Some melee weapons, non stop bile jars... the zombie killing could last forever.
