If you’ve played Left 4 Dead 2 and you enjoyed it, you can buy Earthfall knowing exactly what to expect. There’s no doubt that Earthfall could provide you and your buddies a weekend or two of fun.

Earthfall feels like a science-fiction skin for Left 4 Dead. This isn't inherently a bad thing, after all, people are desperate for a new Left 4 Dead game. Although it does make it easy to compare and see where Earthfall falls short.

Earthfall ends up feeling very middle of the road, and efforts to add progression systems feel about the same. The game has promise, but just don't seem to run anywhere unique or special with the concept.

There's still a lot of potential to be realised in a Left 4 Dead-like experience, but Earthfall is a complete miss. It fails to build upon the foundations abandoned by Valve, with repetitive AI spawns and an arsenal of weaponry that does nothing to distinguish themselves from one another. And with just four hours of content to work through, you'll be left feeling short-changed by an experience that gives you no reason to return once the credits roll.

An uninspired, unoriginal Left4Dead clone that suffers from wishy-washy shooting and a lack of polish

Even if you miss Left 4 Dead series as hell, it's still a better choice to go for this old series which is now nearly 10 years old. Here aliens have conquered the games and there is no hope.

Earthfall is a hard pill to swallow. Almost everything it does will lead to frustration. You're money is better off spent elsewhere unless of course you constantly love to scream in your friends ears.

I'm all for taking the spirit of a beloved classic and bringing it up to date, but you have to be prepared to be judged utterly against that original game. Under the right circumstances Earthfall is capable of capturing the frantic teamwork of Left 4 Dead, but there's too much wrong here to maintain it for long.

Earthfall is too derivative to stand out and too disappointing to inspire repeat trips through its 10 mediocre missions.

Despite providing the foundations of an interesting multiplayer experience, Earthfall massively holds back on its delivery as a Left 4 Dead successor. It instead sits on a shelf amongst other co-operative horde shooters, unable to stand out as anything spectacular or bring anything new to the table.
