View Full Version : L4D2 requirements larger than 1?

03-21-2010, 06:05 AM
This is probably a silly question, but my laptop is pretty shitty and I can just play L4D1 comfortably on all the lowest settings, so basically I'm wondering if I'll be able to play 2 or not.

If 2 requires more then I'll assume I can't.

Thanks in advance.

why don't you run one of those tests that checks if your system can handle particular games?

You can run it with the comp you ran L4D1 on, but probably on lower graphics. If you want to double check everything -

Yeah Scarecrow, if I can find one, such as AKG posted, but:

Can I trust that site? Sorry I'm a bit paranoid about viruses and such, and no offense but I need a member who I know is trustworthy to verify.

It is indeed very nice. I've used it for weeks now finding PC games for my shitty pc.

Alright, thanks y'all.

So as expected I failed the minimum for L4D2, and was bummed out...
until I tried 1, and found that I failed that too (exact same score). The thing is, I've been playing it comfortably on the lowest settings for several months now...

Does this mean Left 4 dead 2 will be playable?
I checked the specs, and they are practically the same, yet elsewhere I've vaguely heard that 2 requires more...

If anyone has any suggestions on what I should conclude in regards to the playability of 2 on my laptop then please post!

play the demo, and base your evaluations off from there
