Yeah, there must be a Steam problem or something cos I checked the forums and other people are having the same problem with other games. It's still happening to me, the update never finishes and goes back to 0% or just sticks on "Download Starting". I even tried reinstalling the game. I'm massively pissed off, it's the only damn Steam game I wanna play and I haven't been able to for two days.
EDIT: I've got it working now, had to delete L4D and re-download it all, took a good couple of hours but it's working now.
I've been thinking of picking this game up. I'm in the States though, so will lag be an issue?
Also, how does this game play? I know its a FPS, so it uses the mouse and probably WASD. And I know the premise is that you work together and kill zombies as you work towards a helicopter. But what about health and death? Is it possible to become infected?
Oh, and I don't have a Steam account. Anyone know if they have a refund policy?
Lag might be an issue if you want to play with us bunch. Seems to affect Falkon anyways.
There are 4 campaigns, each one split into 5 levels (including the finale where you defend one position for 10 minutes or so). You definitely need to work together (or if you're me make a run for the level end when in sight ). Health is replenished through healthpacks you carry and pills that give a health boost for a bit. You don't become infected in Campaign mode.
You can play as the zombies in Versus mode which is hella awesome. This supports up to 8 players, 4 on each team. Versus games last 2x as long since it alternates playing as human and zombies. Zombies are fun. L4D told me this.

Yeah I had a lot of fun with that last night. Shame we lost a couple of people along the way and ended up with some dumb bots but it was still a good laugh. I always like playing versus, it's a nice change to play as infected.
