    This seems like the popular decision making system coming main stream since it seemed to do rather well with Mass Effect and the fast paced, team play, zombie killing shooter aspects of “Left4dead”.

        I never played L4D so even if it had more variety I wouldn’t notice I wouldn’t have anything to compare it to what I think its going to be is more challenging they now have a class system (well unless L4D also had a class system) so most likely not any one class can use just any weapon so now this may force specialization it may also force the team to be more balanced or you may increase your chances of losing e.g. The team can’t just be filled with Beltway, Spectre and Lupo because there may be instances perhaps several instances where a Four Eye is needed and I know for a fact that a Bertha is going to be in high demand.
