Valve's popular cooperative first-person shooter [[xref:http://www.gamepro.com/games/xbox360/131801/left-4-dead/|Left 4 Dead|Left 4 Dead]] releases for Xbox 360 and PC. The game pits a team of human survivors against the undead. Unlike most zombie-themed video games, Left 4 Dead gives players the option to actually fight as a zombie, including one that spews bile that attracts zombie minions like flies and another with an elongated tongue that's effective at dragging victims toward it.
