You've got to love it when developers use text speak in their game titles.  ::)

That pissed me off too. It's bad enough when kids do it; having some "clever" link to the four characters isn't really an excuse.
The zombies left 4 people dead.

I hate fast moving zombies too  >:(  Why can't they just copy the zombie mod and give them insane HP, combined with oodles of zombies it would work.  What they really need is the zombie survival guide to understand the true workings of a zombie. Then you'd have to buy earplugs along with your gun so you don't go crazy with zombie wailing!

 ;D some one has to mod it to make "zombie survival sim" that would be quality.

Now that's funny...

And there were fast zombies in HL2, if you remember. Playing as one of those would be cool.

No, It would be fun but ruin the game.  Zombies are not fast, I do not know when people will get this through their heads but THEY just ARE NOT FAST.  (I'm a bit PO'ed today so take it with a grain of salt)

You could even argue if those were zombies in HL2, it was more like hosts with parasites. (although that's not that far off from what the zombie survival guide says they are)

Have you tried any of the current zombie mods? You get running and jumping zombies, it's actually not as fun as it sounds. The best part is when you've built a barricade and a zombie is trying to get in. But watching a zombie climb a ladder as fast as a human isn't that fun.

I want a mod where zombies are slow, keep going if you blow off body parts, and as soon as one dies another spawns. and if you are on a roof the only way they can reach you is them massing on top of each other until they create an undead ramp to reach you. Of course that many zombies might be a bit laggy, but I can wish :p and in my game there would be no zombie PC's. The AI would just go after the closest person. muha!

"Real" zombies were scary due to the "slow but overwhelming" deal. I mean, minus the eating you part. The word "Zombie" itself is even used to portray sluggishness and emotionlessness. Fast zombies? They would be better called just "monsters". From the gaming angle, the pace is most important here. Check out the free mod for HL2 : "Hidden". Slow paced, but with action that tends to be over in a matter of seconds, depending on how much the 'hidden' player decides to savor things by hanging way back.

They are counter strike mods, you can own CS without owning HL2.

Here's a preview.

And here's an interview with the founder of Turtle Rock Studios, the studio that makes Left 4 Dead.

Heh he starts of that preview saying its the best game experience he ever had, now a reviewer just simply cannot say that, its just wrong, unless he is being paid extremely well, or he is a fool, or if the game truly is all that.
Luckily this game would appear to be the absolute bomb of 2007, I personally cannot wait :)
