      Well, It's Great!

      Surprisingly its quality is much better than I expected. The design is quite great, in my mind it's actually better than 85% of the campaigns on this website, as its style is very similar to Valve campaings - it has nice pace as well as particularly balanced diffculty. The lighting is also one of the best, although compared to other great campaigns, the actual details may be kind of disappointing, but that doesn't matter. Anyway I do dislike something this campaign offers, for example, the balance of map 4 - it's such a weird thing that I can't find ammo before the panic event. Other than that, this campaign is quite great.
      And don't pay attention to Left4Def. The botnav worked well for me. I smoothly completed this on Realism Expert without finding notable issues.

      不戳不戳

      不得不说最后一关开开关回去,这样的设计是不错的,但是走了那么远的路开了油车的阀门,相隔几百米外的直升飞机怎么就有油了呢。。。。也没见有那么长的管子呀,,,
      下水道不是很绕,但是我不喜欢下水道找路
      其他的都还好,总的来说是张不错的图

      Good

      Pros
      >Great level design
      >Maps are not boring to explore
      >No bugs or glitches
      >Bots can pickup medkits
      >Everything is great until the finale
      
      Cons are mostly from finale
      >Not a big deal,no proper chapter titles and the add-on title is broken $DetourAhead_Title
      >In finale the bots always left behind because they prefer to climb trucks and cross the river instead the road
      >Sometimes hordes of CI spawns behind cars in finale
      >There is only one medkit at the finale
      >Too many SI in the finale sometimes there are 4 SI (two jockeys or two chargers or two smokers with 2 different SI)

      Very solid campaign

      Nice campaign that is well balanced. Especially the 4th level with the moving train across the bridge was very nice. The finale is a bit difficult but enjoyable nevertheless.

      A classic custom campaign - still holds up

      I remember this one from several years ago, and after revisiting it with L4D2, all of the polish and pacing still holds up.  The finale is a longer one and a bit tougher than the norm, in that you have to cover a lot of ground, but the items make it reasonable and it gives the campaign a different feel.  Add this to your regular rotation if you haven't tried it yet - it is a gem.

      One of those legends

      Well built and adequately balanced, with possibly the exception of constant mini-hordes and periodically double Special spam. The finale is tough, but the supplies are plentiful. Those small Survivor conversation also add up to the atmosphere.

      This was a long detour...

      The maps were nicely designed,no errors,glitches or pink/black areas.
      The atmosphere was good with the intro/outro.
      There seemed to be a balanced supply of weapons/ammo/throwables on normal realism when I played.
      Finale was interesting though the entire campaign was pretty challenging with lots of specials to fight with hordes.
      
      Only cons were the bots seemed to get stuck at certain places,especially ladders. Aside from that I'll be keeping this in my addons folder.

      One of my favorite custom campaigns

      This map feels like it could have shipped with the game. The set pieces are well-thought out and unique, and I love the finale.

      great campaign - unfortunately buggy

      One of my favorite (solo) campaigns in L4D2. But unfortunately quite buggy, which was never fixed: weapons disappear when switching, bots don't help if you're down, don't shoot or fight back.
      Sometimes unfair (Special Infected). The finale I overcome max. at "advanced", usually only on "normal" difficulty.

      Perfect campaign. Great map design. Plenty of supplies. No glitches/bugs. However, at one point, Coach got stuck on a ladder, but he eventually managed to climb it.

      good old fashioned quality long campaign!

      Not much I am willing to say about this, mainly because I'd rather people experience it for themselves.
      What I'll say for now is if you've been holding out on downloading a campaign now's a good time!
      This campaign takes me back to the good old days of the first Left 4 Dead when campaigns were long but also great.
      You don't see a lot of that done well together any more, so don't miss out on this campaign!

      Pros:

      1. enough supplies to keep you alive on advanced difficulty
      2. good design
      3. enjoyable
      

      Cons:

      1. hordes come every few minutes
      2. impossible on expert difficulty with bots
      3. sometimes tanks in the beggining of the map
      

      Conclusion:

      nice map, although very difficult, the stupid bots can !@#$ your gameplay and make you repeat the map countless of times
