Pros:
The official campaigns are not boring at all to me.
As a gamer from the late 1980's, having L4D 2 harder than L4D 1 made me smile.
I was fortunate enough to have real - life family & friends play this game w/ me.
The flexability of the gameplay in L4D 2. There is no 1 absolute way to play.

Cons:
The constant bad behaviour & complaining from this community.
No option to turn off / on friendly fire.
This game was harder than L4D 1. But easy compared to other games I have played.
Players NOT adapting to a different style of play. They think 1 way is good. The other is bad.

Nice! Like your "Pros"!

Oh god, I don't even know where to begin with the Pros...

Pros:
-The focus on Cooperative play is just amazing, for me I prefer helping others and working in a team than trying to be the best. L4D is all about teamwork, you literally cannot play this game solo, if one SI gets you its over (Unless the bots actually do something about it)
-Randomization. We all know the maps by now (Unless you're a new player) but the randomized weapon and item spawns present a new challenge every time. We've all been saved by a convienantly placed gun, I'd like to say.
-Zombies. Just zombies. Everyone likes to shoot 'em.
-(Compared to L4D1) More content, still feels lacking in the gun count but still more than the original, and more zombies! (SI and Uncommon)
-Drop in, drop out Co-Op. For me, being able to have people drop in and out of games is great, and the idle feature saves someone from having to leave the game if they need a few minutes to do something out of game. But this does have its problems...

Cons:
-After having played L4D1 and L4D2 on Xbox 360 from the beginning and moving to Steam only recently, I got to say the community is really split between "casuals" and "pros". But everyone will assume you're a pro if you have a ton of hours put into (the Steam version of) the game.
--The online community will very quickly kick you in a versus match if you're not a "pro" (or so I've heard, haven't tried playing Versus here in Steam yet myself)
-New SI and the L4D1 maps don't mix well. Example: Finale for No Mercy, Chargers and Jockeys, you know where I'm going here...
-Griefing. All games have it, especially games focused on Co-Op style of play.
-The Tank is OP in versus, but only if it can get near you. (This one isn't really a con, but for the new players it takes a while to learn how to avoid the tank properly)

Nice work!

Cons would be the music and atmosphere. Heavy Rain kind of got the L4D1 style atmosphere but Dead Center and the Parish just don't have that atmosphere, doesn't help that it's mid day so it's sunny. I would love a night time version of those maps, all lights out in the hotel on Dead Center, only light source are flashlights and the fires. Stupid achievements that are awkard. Wedding crasher, I'm looking at you.

Pros would be mods. I plan to replace the music with L4D1's unless there is a mod already but I haven't had any luck. Custom guns, maps and UI helps make the experience more L4D1 style. Already got L4D1 pistols and HUD

PRO: Shooting zombies
PRO: Shot-gunning zombies in the guts and watch them go flying (giggle-hee-hee)

CONS: Ummmm, sometimes you run into losers, but that's true in any aspect of life.

Pros - highly social compared to faster fps games such as css
Ability to set friend only games. And/or play in communities that moderate and keep their own communities clean.
Made friends up to the steam cap of 355, even know three couple's that got together after meeting on L4D xD ones engaged.
Cons - Once in a while you will come across a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ bag as you would in life.

Pros:
- Gameplay
- This game is focus on teamwork
- You can play this game also in a old computer without lagging so much (like me)

Cons:
- Community
- Votekick allowed in all the servers except modded servers.
- Server list sucks... that should be like in TF2, with an advanced search of the servers (ping, map/level and tags), Favorite list, Blacklist etc.
- Not enough official campaigns
- No ragdolls when a survivor die (like in L4D1)
- Can't see your feet (like in L4D1)
- Daytime campaign... seriously, a zombie game should be in night time.
- Jockeys. Useless.
